Understanding our skin’s natural ability in absorbing and reflecting light, the new White Plus Total Luminescent by Clarins utilizes the mirroring concept to help women achieve fairer, healthy-looking complexion to reveal a total luminescence.
Using a unique Trans-Luminescent Complex to help revive skin’s luminosity layer by layer, it blends Hyaluronic Acid which seals in moisture and, increases skin’s capacity to reflect light; Sandspurry & Alchemilla extracts help decelerate melanin production; Ginkgo Biloba & White Tea extracts fight oxidative stress and boost healthy micro-circulation.
Clarins White Plus Total Luminescent Intensive Brightening Serum
Essential for every skin type, not only does it ensure reinforced control of melanin pigmentation but thanks to its antioxidant action, the serum also helps fight dull, sallow appearance to reveal its natural beauty.
Unlike the predesessing serum from the White Plus HP line that is milky and fluidity, the Total Luminescent Serum comes in a gel texture which I don’t find hydrating enough for me. Even when layered over with a moisturizer, the product flakes when I apply makeup, particularly powdered compacts.
Clarins White Plus Total Luminescent Brightening Hydrating Emulsion
Sharing the same fluidity texture as the Whitening Velvet Emulsions, the distinctive difference lies in the scent. The brand has omitted the spiking Sea Lily, and the Total Luminescent line smells like their signature floral fragrance. The moisturizer feels comfortable on the skin, unfortunately my T-Zone starts to shine quickly afterwards.
Note that the Total Luminescent Emulsion replaces the existing Whitening Velvet non-SPF version in the current Clarins line-up.
Clarins White Plus Total Luminescent All Spots Brightening Corrector
A targeted roll-on application that treats pigmented blemishes. Formula contains exfoliating salicylic acid that helps reduce dark spots, and meadowsweet extract purifies the skin.
I’ve only used for under 2 weeks and minor blemishes have diminished, although there’s a patch that’s 1/10 the size of my thumb still ain’t budging. Usage-wise, I’d roll on the applicator in-between my beauty regime:
Brightening Lotion >> Corrector >> Toning Lotion >> Corrector >> Brightening Serum >> Corrector >> Brightening Emulsion >> Corrector >> Sunscreen
How’s that for aggressive treatment!
