This is a genius collection! I’m totally in love with the concept and the products!
Guerlain created the perfect collection for summer; the 5 products target specific skin issues and are so perfectly created that they suit (in my opinion) each skin type.The collection is actually a beauty surviving kit which includes 5 conveniently-sized super heroes that cover the entire spectrum of skin needs and are easy to carry in the luggage while travelling (also, the packaging looks so cool).
Radiance In A Flash (€31/ 15ml) | This product has a gel-like texture which melts immediately into the skin and has a cooling effect.
The formula is peachy pearlescent with a beautiful floral fragrance which makes me think of orange blossoms.
It is a very light product which offers the perfect amount of moisture throughout the day, refreshes the complexion and represents a great base for either makeup or a SPF product.
It also has a slight tightening effect; makes the skin look gorgeously dewy and illuminated.
I love to combine it with the Terracotta L’Eau Hâlée Tinted Cooling Water and the Terracotta Pause d’Été Collector Bronzing Powder Duo.
Midnight Secret (€31/ 15ml) | This product has a creamy yet light texture which smells beautifully of lavender, instantly calms down the senses and prepares the skin for a good night sleep.
It’s moisturising, it smoothes fine lines and reduces dullness; I find that it’s actually as effective as a face mask.
The complexion truly looks better in the morning.
This is a must-have during holidays at the beach where we usually spend a lot of hours in the sun and don’t get enough sleep.
SOS Cream (€31/ 15ml) | This product is perfect for those of you who deal with very dry skin.
It has a dense, butter-like formula with a discreet floral fragrance.
It absorbs instantly into the epidermis without leaving any greasy or sticky residues at the surfaces.
It has a beautiful anti-inflammatory and protective effect.
Those of you, who deal with a dry complexion, please do try this product because it’s fantastic.
It smoothes, soothes and offers a cocooning effect to the skin.
The SOS Cream tends to be too much for my combination skin during this period (I think it will suit it better during the cold season) and so I prefer to use it on my legs and hands.
Anti-Blemish Treatment (€31/ 15ml) | This product is the evolved version of the original Crème Camphréa created by Guerlain in 1870.
It has a dense texture which smells of camphor.
This tinted formula camouflages all imperfections and has great anti-inflammatory effects.
It is meant to be applied only locally and it can be used during the day under the makeup or as a night treatment.
I prefer to use it during the night and the cream is so effective, that my spots almost completely disappear until the morning (however I don’t deal with very serious episodes of acne).
Super Lips (€31/ 15ml) | In my opinion, this is the best lip balm ever!
It has a rich texture which smells deliciously of raspberry macarons.
It instantly calms, smoothes and softens the lips.
It has a slight plumping effect, however, nothing dramatic; but it keeps my lips nourished throughout the day.
It is a transparent, slightly pearlescent gloss which is perfect to use at the beach during the day but can also be used on top of a lipstick during the evening.
What can I say more, these products represent must-haves and I’m challenging Guerlain for creating full-body versions!
