The most important criteria for skincare is that it should be effective. It should do what it claims to do and for me, things like the packaging, fragrance etc take a back seat. But when products are not only effective, but also have a luxurious texture and heavenly fragrance, they quickly become absolute Holy Grails! The Decleor Aromessence Neroli and Hydra Floral Light Cream are two such products. It’s been just 18 days since I’ve started using these and I’m already in love with them. My skincare ritual has become a very soothing, indulgent and luxurious one thanks to these.
Decleor Aromessence Neroli – Hydrating Oil Serum
Price ₹2,500 / 15ml
The Decleor Aromessence Neroli is a 100% Natural oil serum with a fine, silky texture. It offers concentrated effectiveness thanks to essential oils of Neroli, Sandalwood, Petitgrain, Sage, Parsley and Juniper Berries. It hydrates the skin for 24 hours, refines the skin’s texture and restores a radiant complexion.
Luxurious – one word that perfectly suits the Decleor Aromessence Neroli Hydrating Oil Serum. It is 100% natural without any parabens, preservatives, mineral oil or colourants. This wonderful blend of oils smells delightful and natural – though if you’re not fond of fragrance in skincare, you might not like it. Just two drops of this oil are all you need for the entire face and neck and unlike other oils that are supposed to be applied after creams, this one goes before the Hydra Floral Light Cream.
While it is incredibly hydrating, it also gets absorbed quite easily. I usually apply the Aromessence Neroli, press it into my face for a few seconds and then let it get absorbed while I get dressed before applying the cream. It hasn’t caused breakouts and has, in fact, helped soothe and calm an itchy irritation I once has on my face – I think it was some kind of minor allergy.
Decleor Hydra Floral Light Cream
Price: ₹2,500 / 50ml
The Decleor Hydra Floral Light Cream is a light, fresh cream with Neroli essential oil that ensures skin is kept perfectly hydrated and protected from pollution and free radicals. It includes moisture-boosting active ingredients plus powerful plant extracts for long lasting hydration and to preserve skin’s youthful radiance.
The Decleor Hydra Floral Light Cream has the most delightfully decadent texture I have ever experienced in a cream. It has the texture of partially melted vanilla ice cream and a wonderful fragrance as well. It’s quite difficult to describe the texture because it is lightweight yet rich and incredibly hydrating. The fragrance and the texture are very soothing too making these perfect for night time skincare – the perfect way to de-stress after a long and tiring day. Though it is not greasy, it would certainly be a bit too rich for girls with oily skin types. My skin, though combination, is also dehydrated and absolutely loves this as well as the oil. Like the oil, it hasn’t broken me out so far. It also forms a great base for makeup and makes my skin look radiant and dewy even under matte long wear foundation.
My skin and I are totally in love with these amazingly luxurious, hydrating products from Decleor. They get absorbed well, make my skin soft, supple, nourished and radiant and smell absolutely HEAVENLY! These are high end products that are totally worth the price and will last you a long time since you need just a small quantity per application.
