Guerlain Météorites Oxygen Care Moisturizer and Radiance Booster
For the first time Guerlain has come up with new & a permanent skin care product that is inspired by the famous météorites.
Housed in a matte glass bottle, this fresh and spotless white fluid comes under moisturizing category that boosts radiance. It’s slightly different to other products I’ve tried. Because? The light-as-air and silky smooth texture instantaneously irradiate on contact with skin.
The texture transforms under the fingertips, turning from the purest white to a faintly pearlescent pink. See the picture below. And … radiance factor is created by blending blue, green, red and gold (4 unprecedented pearlescent) little colored météorites beads in a fabulous beam of white light (the most natural) to bathe the skin in strikingly natural luminosity.
I find this flattering to be used in the morning as a base product & partly as an illuminating primer.
As a primer– Pearlescent sheen is understated and doesn’t give an overdone “shining –ball” effect. Post application skin is glowing as if infused with light.
As a moisturizer– I didn’t find it to be deeply hydrating. For dry skins, wearing this alone will not be beneficial. This is essentially fitting for normal-oily-combination skin types. Suitable for sensitive skins too, but as always, Guerlain adds its distinctive fragrance to all products and this time its violet – same as meteorites.
Do you really need this product?Not necessarily if you already have a heavy duty moisturizer and a radiant primer. I see it as a ‘good to have’ slightly expensive version of a radiant moisturizer on the luxury category. Now that I own one, I would put to good use during my upcoming summer vacay. 2-in-1 products are great for traveling and this one adds that glow! Most certainly, I wouldn’t be packing any highlighters 🙂
