Review – Clarins HydraQuench Cream Keeps My Skin Moisture


Lately I am troubled with my dry skin due to the new sitting arrangement with air-conditioning just directly above my working desk. The air-conditioning has dehydrated my skin a lot. I can see my skin getting dryer day by day. As the skin moisture starts to decrease, I’ve noticed my skin getting duller, feeling tighter and losing radiance. Fine lines are also extremely visible around the eye areas.

Clarins HydraQuench Cream, for normal to dry skin, is an ideal moisturizer for day and night. I have gotten the sample of Clarins HydraQuench Cream after purchasing a Clarins sunscreen few weeks ago.

Product claims

The ultra-moisturizing skincare with a fine, penetrating texture that satisfies all of the needs of normal to dry skin regardless of variations in temperature of climate.


Clarins HydraQuench Cream contains caprylic/capric triglyceride, helianthus annuus (sunflower) seed oil, cetearyl alcohol, cetyl alcohol and stearyl alcohol which are considered good emollients. In addition, it also contains sodium hyaluronate (a component of skin tissue) and sodium pca that are considered good water-binding agents.

It also contains good antioxidant ingredients like camellia sinensis leaf extract, also known as green tea, tocopheryl acetate and tocopherol, both are known as vitamin E. Sodium lauryl sulfate and fragrance are skin irritant ingredients which also can be found in Clarins HydraQuench Cream.


Clarins HydraQuench Cream provides sufficient moisture I need regardless of variations in temperature or climate. I extremely like the lightweight, non-oily and silky texture which penetrates well onto my skin. My skin doesn’t feel oily even few hours after the application. Clarins HydraQuench Cream helps to hydrate and softer my skin effectively.

One of the setback is the jar packaging. Studies have shown that some ingredients for example plant extracts, vitamins and antioxidant, break down and deteriorate in the presence of air and light. Hence, if the product is in jar packaging which is not airtight, it will allow air and light penetration. Some air and light sensitive ingredients will become ineffective within a short period of time after the container is opened.


 packaging is a problem!

Will I buy it? Maybe
