Review of CLE DE PEAU Essential Correcting Refiner

Posted on April 15, 2013


Merging Japan’s exquisite aesthetic sense with modern French elegance is the story behind Cle de Peau Beauty, meaning “the key to skin” in French. This luxury women’s skin care brand, sold at top department stores like Bergdorf Goodman and Nordstrom, has brought forth a new product called the Essential Correcting Refiner. Here is our product review of it:

Cle_de_Peau_Beaute_Essential_Correcting_Refiner_57_ozThe Essential Correcting Refiner is a light-weight facial serum developed to minimize the appearance of pores and to correct the cause of visible pores bringing out a more even skin complexion. It does this by retexturizing skin and replenishing moisture. This product is perfect for people with rough or uneven skin tone.

This new refiner is loaded with some very potent revitalizing ingredients such as Cle De Peau’s new technology surface refining complex and illuminating complex — both developed to promote skin radiance, oil absorbing powder to keep your skin looking matte and not greasy, chamomille extract for anti-free radical action, and super hyaluronic acid to help keep skin hydrated and smoother for longer periods of time.

After our usual two week thorough testing period, we found that this product did a stellar job at locking in hydration, especially around the eye areas. And with skin appearing more firm and plump as a result, the little pesky fine lines present our our foreheads were diminished. We particularly liked the softness and lightness of this refining serum. Upon application, our skin felt silky smooth and more radiant. Now with the brand’s claim that “pores seem to vanish”, we did not encounter those results after our review period. We did find it a little strange that this “serum” be applied with a cotton pad. Maybe serum is not the correct word to use as serums tend to be more viscous in consistency and the refining solution tended to resemble more like a toner.

Overall, the Cle de Peau Essential Correcting Refiner is a wonderful product to add to anyone’s anti-aging skin care regimen. It helps keep your skin hydrated for long periods of time without any heavy feeling. Priced at $95 for 170 ml / 5.7 fl oz, we give it our two thumbs up.
