Review: Clé de Peau Beauté's La Crème

Three successful women with hectic lifestyles who’ve recently entered their 20s, 30s and 40s share with us their #JourneyToRadiance.

Through its research, Clé de Peau Beauté found that our skin possesses its own intelligence and is able to digest information, just like the human brain. The brand calls this the “Intuitive Skin Theory”. What this means is that our skin is able react accordingly to the conditions it is exposed to — for instance, tapping on its natural ability to restore itself to a calm state when exposed to external aggressors such as environmental pollutants and UV rays.

Clé de Peau Beauté made another leap forward in its laboratories when it identified specific areas of skin tissue that are responsible for determining skin’s overall appearance. With these discoveries, its new skincare range is better able to tap on the skin’s innate ability to achieve vibrant, healthier-looking skin.

Working more effectively within skin tissue is the brand’s new range of lotions, emulsions and creams which are driven by the exclusive new ingredient: Illuminating Complex EX. It is a fusion of hydrating and retexturising ingredients that helps to mitigate the signs of damage such as dryness caused by UV rays. Its star ingredient is the Platinum Golden Silk, a fluid comprising silk fibres, from the cocoons of the brand’s specially reared silkworms, that inhibits skin yellowing, and also Japanese pearls.

The most precious of the range is Clé de Peau Beauté’s signature La Crème. Years of research have not only produced a cream that is effective at maximising radiance of the skin, but also one that is lightweight, easily absorbed and is luxurious to the touch. It boosts skin’s vitality, firmness and translucency, revealing more youthful-looking skin.

Tjin Lee, 41

Managing Director, Mercury Marketing & Communications

One of Tjin Lee’s key skincare practices include the religious application of sunblock. She shares that she has been applying it every single day since she was 22. Being at the helm of a number of businesses, Lee also sometimes finds herself strapped for time and hence prefers to keep to a regime that she can complete in 10 minutes or less. The skincare range from Clé de Peau Beauté is one such example. “I like that the products have a lightweight texture that is not greasy or sticky. This is especially so for the La Crème. Upon application, it makes me feel pampered and leaves my skin deeply moisturised. I also love the scent,” she says. Like most women, Lee also admits to having an affinity for pretty things. “The brand has put a lot of thought into the product packaging and the end result is beautiful.”

Stephanie Lee, 31

Director, T.S. Lee & Sons

When Stephanie Lee was studying in Sydney, she started to notice a change in her complexion due to the dry weather. This was when she realised the importance of developing a regular skincare regime. This includes cleansing and moisturising not only her face but also neck, both in the mornings and evenings. Due to the sensitive nature of her skin, Lee uses only products that are highly recommended by friends or family, such as her current skincare regime by Clé de Peau Beauté.
“I find that their skincare range is easy to use and makes my journey to radiance an easier one. The texture of the new La Crème is lightweight and is easily absorbed,” she shares. “The best thing I like about it is how it makes my skin feel smooth, nourished and looking radiant the next morning.”

Serene Tan, 23

Business Development Director, Century Bond Group of Companies

Serene Tan’s obsession with her skin dates back to her teenage years. As a young woman, her mother would often remind her of the importance of skincare and would introduce her to products to help her daughter maintain healthy, youthful-looking skin. The elder Tan even enrolled her daughter in a professional make-up course so that she would understand the effects of excess make-up. “One thing that was inculcated in me when it comes to beauty practices is to always remove my make-up thoroughly before I go to bed. I do this even when I am extremely tired,” she shares. The practice has paid off for Tan sports flawless skin. Her journey to radiance can also be attributed to her skincare regime, which of late includes skincare from Clé de Peau Beauté. “My face feels moisturised and soft after applying the Clarifying Lotion. It does not feel oily unlike other products I’ve tried before,” she shares. Tan has also noticed a distinct difference in her skin tone. According to the 23-year-old, her skin looks brighter and more radiant after a week of use.
