You only need a very small amount to cover your whole face- I'd say about a pea size. Also, if you look at the back of the box there should be a little jar with a number on it; that will tell you how long you should keep the product before replacing it at the very most. Hope this helps!

You don't need much to get a great effect. I just looked at my jar and it will be months. Maybe about 6 at the least and probably a bit more if I use it every night. It soaks in beautifully!

Hmmm, sounds you like need to see a good dermatologist. If your skin is acne prone but is dry, go for the less oily creams from Clarins as it will not clog up your pores or leave your skin feeling dry.

Super dry skin will call for some natural treatments too, natural aloe vera gel works beautifully.

a long time it only takes a small amount so if you use wisely it could last at least 6 to 8 months maybe longer.

I like to wash my face when I get home from work, but on the days I go out after work the moisture really does last all day. And you don't have to use much of it either. Very good product. You won't regret getting it!

Question
Which should I try Hydraquench norm to dry or Hydraquench rich?
I have dry / oily combination skin. My skin feels tight and oily at the same time. I've tried moisturizers for combo skin and my skin just drinks it up and I need to reapply. Moisturizers for dry skin leave my face oily. Because of the rave reviews for both, I'm torn between the norm to dry cream and the rich. I live in the New Jersey area and the cold weather is making my skin feel two sizes too small. I've tried Philosophy for dry sen. skin and it made me break out real bad even after using it for a month. I really have to find a moisturizer that will hydrate my dry skin without leaving my face greasy. Any suggestions? Thanks in advance! :-]

I have only used the normal to dry formula but I will say it has never left my face greasy. And I hate it when a moisturizer does that! I wake up in the morning with my face soft and moist.

If your skin is normal/oily, then go for a moisturizer that is not marked with "dry skin" as it will have oils in it. A moisturizer that is more liquid like will hydrate your skin without making it greasy. As for samples to experiment.

Clarins also has hydrating creams for oily to mixed skin types.

I too have the same issues. I'm in upstate NY and weather is always changing and harsh cold dry winters up here. I too have dry skin that drinks anything I put on my face then feels "oily" at times. There are 2'formulas that I know of that clarins has come up with for the normal to dry cream. The original is heavy and leaves skin still needing more it's thick too. The newer formula is much nicer, it's less 'creamy' and moisturizer nicely! The only issue is you may feel oily until it completely sets in. Try their toner before hand.. I love the normal to dry, it moisturizes when I need it most and not too heavy, I think you should go to a clarins counter at a department store and speak to a professional though. I hope I've helped a little... :)

answer 7
I would recommend using the normal to dry skin one. My skin is pretty dry and the air here in colorado is so drying. But I'm happy with the normal to dry skin one. It leaves my skin moisturized and I don't need to reapply. Since you have combination skin I think this one will be rich enough for you. But if your skin is still somewhat dry or flakey like mine tends to be. Try the bi-phase serum once a day before your moisturizer. That thing has worked miracles when my skin feels really dry and I think nothing will change it.

Question
for acne prone skin?
I have acne prone skin (adult onset unfortunately) and my skin has since become super sensitive and prone to clogged pores. However, if i do not moisturize enough, I get tiny bumps and that dry feeling. Will this be ok to use? I'm looking to use this as a night moisturizer - I currently use hope in a jar and it is ok but can be a bit more moisturizing.

I have very sensitive skin although I do not have acne. Even products with more fragrance irritate my skin and eyes. I have not had a single problem with anything using this. It is a little heavy for daytime use unless it is very dry or cold but it is perfect at night. I switched from the Philosophy for sensitive skin which I liked but I wanted something a little more intense. This is perfect and you do not need much to see and feel its effects. When I wake up in the morning my skin is so soft! If you are near a Sephora store ask them to make a sample for you. I bet you will end up buying it!

I suffer from a similar problem (adult onset acne) and have tried Clarins and although it is a fine creme I do not feel like it helps when you use acne cleansers that tend to dry out your skin more. I use First Aid Beauty's Ultra Repair Cream on my face and it seems to be doing the trick, it also is less expensive, absorbs more easily and is very comfortable to wear. Hope this helps!

Actually, I have the same problem. I had great skin, and then out of nowhere, adult acne for a period of 6 months. It stopped once I switched to Clarins. I also get the white bumps if I'm using a cleanser that is too harsh or a moisturizer that's not hydrating enough. So I switched to the one-step cleanser (which cleared up the acne), and to the hydraquench cream, which speeds up the healing process of the hyperpigmentation. I find that it does not clog my pores, and it does help purge existing bumps. I am completely in love with this cream now and use it day and night.

I recommend speaking to a skincare professional. I had a slight on set of adult acne too, on my chin. When I spoke to a woman at the counter where they offer skincare products she gave me life changing advice! The reason I had bumps etc was bc I was using acne fighting products/face washes on the area and or too harsh of a product; and put cream and moisturizers over it which clogged pores and complicated the skin. Now I make it simple I use clarins Shea butter gentle wash and toner with the cream. If I do have a break out(which is absolutely normal for woman) I am careful not to use cream over the area in order to let it dry out. Hope this helps! It works wonderfully for me, I'll never switch!

use this, it's not comedogenic at all + it calms down the skin for it contains natural ingridients for that purpose (I read it in little paper in box to make sure, although I can feel it myself)
If this didn't congest my pores in this horribly hot climate I live in now - nothing will :-)
I sugest you to go for it.

I think this would be a good cream to try for your skin as it has a pretty simple ingredient list, is not greasy and absorbs well (won't leave an oily residue on your skin) It is important to keep even acne prone skin well hydrated and you should be able to tell pretty quickly if this were to negatively affect your acne issues.

OK to use with Retinol?
I currently use a Retinol cream every night which dries my skin out to a point. However, with age my skin is just naturally getting drier. I was wondering if anyone knew if I could use this cream over my Retinol cream without cancelling the Retinol effects?

Hi, I suggest you speak to a dermatologist first. This cream is really good and will take good care of your skin.

It's worth every penny, only if it suits your skin, though.

I think Clarins HydraQuench Cream can easily be used combined with retinol cream, since in little paper form my box of this cream , it writes that it has ingridients like white tea, senna etc - all natural ingridients which calm down the skin.
But you should consult dermatologist because I see it contains hyaluronic acid, too - which is good for fighting ageing, but I think it would be better for you not ton use it at the same time (during night).
For daily use - you should choose version of this cream with SPF, for retinol "peels" your skin during night, so you really need extra protection for that "new skin" which come out on surface.
Anyway - calming effects in this product will do good to your skin treated with retinol. And moisturising effects last several days after only one use - so i really recomend you to go for it.

You can try Kiehl's Ultra Facial Cream - Intense Hydration, I heard about it, but never try it personally. But I have tried and found they are pretty good - Bobbi Brown's Extra Repair Moisturizing Balm and Fresh Crème Ancienne both cost about $100 (very expensive)
Or L'Occitane Ultra Rich Face Cream for $45
I can't find any other product that is as rich as the old Clarin's HydraQuench Cream
I am also looking for something that is cheaper and works!!
