When you think about Guerlain, do you think fragrance? Makeup? Probably. But did you know that Guerlain makes an exceptional line of skin care products called Orchidée Impériale? The line is based on the science and use of orchids in skin care. Orchidée Impériale has been recently formulated with Gold Orchid; found to have properties used to regenerate cell life.
I have several products from the Guerlain Orchidée Impériale skin care line, including:
The Orchidée Impériale skin care range can be used by any age, but will have most appeal to those looking for anti-aging benefits.. These are products that work particularly well on my skin, which is put through the wringer from so much product testing. In-between testing times, I need to use a pampering/soothing regimen that is gentle and performs well on fatigued, overworked and dehydrated skin. These three Orchidée Impériale products are perfect for that.
The Orchidée Impériale Eye and Lip Cream is a nourishing cream that can be used on eyes to brighten, firm and smooth. The texture is rich and creamy, but not heavy. It’s a wonderful treatment to use morning and night. On my skin, I see improvement in undereye puffiness and dark circles, so it’s worth it to me for that alone. The cream, which is unscented, can also be used on lips for improvement in smoothing and reducing the vertical lines that can cause lipstick to bleed, although I haven’t specifically used it for that purpose.
Orchidée Impériale Cream is the star product in the range. With more and more women undergoing skin care procedures such as peels and laser treatments, it’s important to find a skin care product that helps maintain results, while being gentle. Orchidée Impériale Cream is exactly what I would recommend.
The formula of the Cream (and the Orchidée Impériale line) is based on the fact that orchids are a powerful antioxidant and work at the cellular level to maintain longevity of the flowers, as well as providing intense moisturization. Orchidée Impériale Cream has anti-aging benefits for increasing radiance, improving firmness and elasticity of skin and evening skin tone. But it also works on increasing the density. The texture is simply fabulous; it’s rich and velvety, without being heavy. My skin feels completely moisturized, hydrated and comfortable with use.
As someone who generally is not a fan of toners, I’ve come to accept that there is a place for them in the skin care regimen. Applied after cleansing the skin, the toner normalizes pH, adds moisture into the skin and refines. It gets the skin prepared for the moisturizing step. The Orchidée Impériale Toner is gentle, formulated with Orchid Water, which doesn’t strip the skin and smells divine. While I wouldn’t call it a necessary step, it is a wonderfully nurturing step.
Guerlain Orchidée Impériale skin care products are expensive and they are a splurge, so they won’t appeal to everyone. However, if you love high-end skin care, skin care that is plant-based, or just love pampering yourself, based on my own experience with these products, this is a line to check out.
