What does oily, acne-prone skin need? A hydrating serum that soothes the skin and tackles blemishes and breakouts! This is precisely what the Peau Care Clair Peau Serum does in one sentence! You must be aware that I already love the gel sunscreen from the brand, and when this serum was recently launched, I had high hopes from it too! The brand was kind enough to send this product to me and I have been testing it out for quite some time now. Here is my detailed review of the product!
The Formula and Its Benefits
The Peau Care Clair Peau Serum is a water-based, oil-free serum that claims to have anti-ageing and anti-acne properties. It contains a variety of humectants, such as Aloe, 10% Hyaluronic Acid, Glycerin, and Propylene Glycol. It also contains a mild concentration of AHA’s (1% Glycolic Acid & 0.5% Lactic Acid) and BHA’s (1% Salicylic Acid) that help with faster cell renewal and reduction in acne and hyperpigmentation. Additionally, the formula also contains Niacinamide and Vitamin B5, which are known to fight signs of premature ageing, such as wrinkles and pigmentation.
The texture of this serum is in the form of a runny gel. It feels slightly sticky on the skin for a few minutes post application, after which you will not feel it on your skin. The serum has a strong raspberry-vanilla scent that lingers on the skin for a few minutes. As always, a patch test is recommended before the first use to make sure that you are not allergic to any of the ingredients.
Price, Packaging and Availability
The Peau Care Clair Peau Serum comes in a frosted glass bottle with a convenient pump. The bottle is shipped with an outer tin jar which you can use for storage to protect the product from light. All the ingredients and manufacturing details are provided on the packaging, which is great. The product retails for INR 990, but you can currently get 20% off on the serum with the coupon code PEAU20. This makes the serum fairly affordable for the ingredients that it contains.
My Experience With The Peau Care Clair Peau Serum
I have been using the Peau Care Clair Peau Serum at night for quite some time now and it helps to soothe and heal my active acne faster. I use it under a moisturizer to maximize the efficacy of the humectants, and my skin feels soft and plump after every use. In the morning, I wake up to radiant skin that feels well-nourished. The serum also seems to tighten my pores, and there has been a visible reduction in my whiteheads and breakouts ever since I started using the product. I therefore feel that this serum will work really well for oily and acne-prone skin. Also, it is a great way to introduce chemical exfoliants in your skincare routine if you are a beginner, because the concentration of the same is quite low in the formula.
The fragrance of the serum could be a little strong for some, but other than that, I do not see any con with the product. If you have been in the market for an AHA and BHA-based serum then the Peau Care Clair Peau Serum is definitely worth the investment!
