WHAT IS IT?
A moisurising fluid containing Guerlains Orchidee Imperiale Molecular Extract. This is taken from the orchid and forms the whole Orchidee Imperiale range. This fluid is lighter than than the iconic cream so is suitable for most skin types, the very rich cream is harsh so you need very resilient skin to use it.
HOW DO YOU USE IT?
Cleanse your skin thoroughly and pat dry. Apply a very small amount of fluid to your skin and massage in using gentle circular motions.
This is an anti-aging fluid and promises visible results in two weeks. I use it myself and it's moisturising but I do not have wrinkles to test out these claims on my own skin. One of my older ladies uses Guerlain products and has beautiful skin but after trialling the Orchidee Imperiale on my recommendation she has told me that the crows feet around her eyes are shallower and I can see this is the case. I can see that the fine lines round her mouth are smoother too, these effects took longer than two weeks but show that the fluid is effective.
WHAT I THINK
This Guerlain fluid is beautiful to use and feels very soft against my skin, like velvet. It absorbs very quickly and leaves a silky powdery feeling on my skin, I love the way my skin looks after I have applied the fluid because it glows with health and vitality. The fluid is better used in the morning to make your skin look good all day long, for extra moisture you can use the Orchidee Imperiale cream at nighttime but if you do that you should do a skin patch test first because it doesn't suit everyone.
It doesn't feel sticky on my skin and leaves it feeling very soft and smooth. I apply my foundation after using this fluid because it gives me a good base and helps me to attain a flawless finish. There is no residue after using this fluid and I have never had a poor skin reaction to it.
A 30ml bottle of this fluid costs £180 in Debenhams and is sold in a beautiful glass and navy pump bottle, the pump dispenses a very small amount every time you press it so you don't waste any of the fluid because at that price you can't afford to waste a drop.
