The Skincare Product Our Beauty Director Swears By

One bottle of Clarins Double Serum sells every four seconds globally – and anyone who’s used it will know why. Designed to firm, tone and boost your skin’s overall glow and health, it’s considered one of the best products for every skin tone, type and need. Here’s why our beauty director Becky loves it and what makes it’s so effective.

Created in partnership with Clarins

The Background…

One of the beauty world’s most iconic products, Clarins Double Serum was created in 1985 and remains a favourite to this day. It is also the UK's #1 bestselling serum. It’s racked up 173 million mentions on TikTok thanks to its efficacy and proven results.

Now in its eighth iteration, it contains 21 nourishing plant extracts, as well as turmeric – which is touted for its anti-ageing benefits. It’s also available in a lighter texture, which is also non-comedogenic and has been designed with oilier and combination skin types in mind.

As the name suggests, it’s a two-in-one formula – which you can see as you pump it into your hand. Silky smooth, the two serums are one third lipidic and two thirds hydric, which is the exact same composition of your skin barrier. The formula is full of antioxidant-rich ingredients too that are designed to boost brightness – something its fans rave about.


What It Does…

The largely natural formula stimulates your skin’s five vital functions: regeneration, oxygenation, nutrition, hydration and protection. It does this with a proven-to-work blend of potent plant extracts including green banana, goji berries and ginger lily. Together, they work to fight off nasty free radicals that can cause premature ageing, dehydration and wrinkles, leaving you with smoother, plumper, firmer skin over time. Given the formula is gentle and contains zero ‘filler’ ingredients, it works for everyone – no matter your age or skin type.

Finally, extra points go to the rotating pump button, which has been designed to deliver a made-to-measure dosage, so you always use the right amount and nothing goes to waste.

Why Becky Loves It…

“My skin can really play up and misbehave – particularly at this time of year. The combination of central heating, spending more time indoors and higher stress in the run up to Christmas can cause it to become red, tight and dehydrated. If there’s one product that’s always been brilliant in these situations, it’s Double Serum from Clarins.

“Nothing brings my skin back from the brink quite like it – it’s a serum that hydrates but without that suffocating feel. After a week or so, my complexion always looks and feels fresher, with visibly renewed bounce. I love that I can almost feel the nourishing avocado oils, fruit extracts and turmeric getting to work.

“Consistency is key – I apply it both morning and evening and find it complements other active ingredients, cushioning any harsh effects nicely.

“My biggest tip is to really warm the formula up in your hands first. This helps combine the two textures and means that when you apply it, it absorbs quicker. You’ll see better glow and radiance right off the bat. If, like me, you suffer with inflammation and occasional breakouts, you’ll love the addition of turmeric, which is full of antibacterial benefits to take down redness and unwanted bumps at speed.

“Seeing is believing, but there’s a reason so many of us return to this cult classic: reliable, comforting and satisfying to use, it will always be a product I have on hand.”
