When we heard about the Clé de Peau Beauté basic skincare that could alleviate our lifestyle hurdles, save precious time, and bring us one step to picture-perfection that of Felicity Jones and Japanese model Kozue Akimoto, we put it to the test.

A one-minute scroll through your Instagram feed will take you to photos of flawless, blemish-free models and friends alike. Thanks to photo filters and HD makeup techniques, anyone can attain a beautiful appearance. The only downside to it is that it takes time to achieve a full face of makeup, which we’d happily find an alternative for on a daily basis. So we tried the Clé de Peau Beauté basic care that addressed these modern women’s needs:

It’s the perfect canvas to complement makeup

Good makeup starts with fresh skin. When your face is thoroughly cleansed from impurities without compromising its natural moisture levels; and your face is relaxed, healthy and aglow, you’ve found yourself a keeper. Such is the effect of the Clé de Peau Beauté cleansing foam range and its ability to clear the base for your makeup.

Available in a clarifying or softening foam texture, these Clé de Peau Beauté cleansers are powered with advanced cleansing technology and a luxurious lather we gladly welcomed. A closer look at its special formula of diamond powder, Hyaluronic Acid and a Cellular IC Normalizer assured us of a sound, deep-skin cleansing. Earning itself luxury points, was an elegant rose and orchid fragrance set the tone for a pampering ritual.

Good skincare means better selfies

We've all been in that awkward position when everyone but yourself looks good in a group photo. Rather than interrupting those spontaneous moments of friendship, nip it in the bud by being ever-ready for the wefies. We found the solution in one defining step added to the basic care series: The Clé de Peau Beauté lotions, that gentle stimulate and generate the freshness of dewy skin.

A hydro-softening lotion or hydro-clarifying lotion boasts multi-benefits, beginning with a protective hydrating treatment that essentially acts like a radiance booster. Additionally, depending on the lotion of choice, it softens deeply or sheds dull cells – ultimately, both restore brightness for a revitalised complexion you never knew. The lotions' special blend of moisturising and retexturising properties concoct a reversal effect on environmental damage.

A double-duty moisturiser, infused with sunscreen too

Which brings us to another beauty fundamental – SPF. Not all skincare contains UV protection, necessitating a separate application of sun care in the mornings. To our delight, the Clé de Peau Beauté basic range addressed this by capping our daytime moisturiser with a protective dose of SPF25 PA+++.

In addition to balancing and retaining skin’s moisture levels, the emulsion or cream-based formulations act as a daytime defense system, combatting dryness, UV exposure and oxidation, thanks to a combination of advanced, active ingredients. Its lightweight texture goes down a treat for all-day wear, which held our foundation in place.

It makes up part of your skin’s daily water intake

The simplest pleasures often make for perfect DIY self-care – in this case, the additional touch of night-time moisturiser. Moisturisers formulated for night use add a luxurious yet essential finale to our beauty habits, a philosophy held fast by the Clé de Peau Beauté basic range. 

Available in an emulsion or cream formulations, these intensive moisturisers are formulated to top up hydration as you sleep, and you’ll awaken to a renewed and luminous skin texture. These hi-tech moisturisers also smoothen and reduce pore appearances, whilst rebalance skin should you wish to supplement with an additional night treatment. A Clé de Peau Beauté range more luxurious than the last, we can’t believe it’s just the basics!
