Clarins Blue Orchid Face Treatment Oil Review

Hey Everyone!


If you would have asked me about applying oil on my face couple of years back I would have laughed and said "yeah right like thats gonna happen". But once you start using face oils I bet you would not be able to stop. I am absolutely obsessed with facial oils! My obsession started with Clarins Blue Orchid Face Treatment Oil which totally changed my skincare routine.

Claims:- Hydrating treatment oil restores vitality and radiance to dehydrated skin. Patchouli and Blue Orchid extracts tone and revitalize to moisture-depleted skin. Hazelnut Oil softens, smoothes and seals in moisture to help minimizes the appearance of fine lines.


I always thought I had combination/oily skin but since last year my skin was showing a lot of dryness  especially around the nose and lips area, so I was highly confused on how my skin can be oily and dry at the same time? but all thanks to Caroline Hirons I came to know my skin was highly dehydrated which is often mistakenly taken as dry skin.

Anyways I used started using Clarins Blue Orchid Oil around last year and I absolutely love it. The oil comes in a glass bottle with a dropper. Both the bottle and dropper are extremely sturdy as I have traveled a million times with it and never had any issues. I prefer to use the oil only during the night time as it can be a tab bit heavy for day time. The oil is very light weight and gets absorbed fast without leaving any tackiness behind. It does have fragrance and truth be told I don't prefer fragrance in skincare as it can cause irritation but fortunately I have not faced any irritation or break outs from the oil. The fragrance is actually very soothing and helps me sleep better at night.

The ingredient list is fairly small and completely natural with plant based ingredients.

Hazel Seed Oil helps in preventing moisture loss and keeps the skin soft and supple. It also helps with fine lines

Blue Orchid Oil tones where as Patchouli oil has antiseptic and anti-fungal properties which help in skin issues like acne, irritations, inflammation, eczema. Its often used in anti-aging skin care for its cell rejuvenating properties.



I take about 3-4 drops on my palms and dab it on my face gently. I do this as the last step in my skin care routine and in the morning my skin looks hydrated, even toned and well rested. There are no dry patches or flakiness. The skin looks bright and healthy! It also helps with healing of acne, it will not dry out the acne but helps with healing the skin much faster.

I do have quite large pores on my cheeks and I do notice that they appear a bit smaller in the mornings but I haven't faced any permanent reduction in appearance of pores. Since I started using this oil my skin does not get extremely oily and appears to be well balanced. I have been using this oil for more than a year now and I still have over 50% left so this 30ml bottle will last you a very long time since only few drops are required to cover the entire face. I sometimes also take the oil down on my neck and decollete area.

Overall I highly recommend this oil to anyone who is having dehydrated acne prone skin.
