Psst…keep reading to find out how you can fast-track your journey to mirror skin in just seven days with a revolutionary and newly reformulated essence!

Glass Skin vs Mirror Skin: The Battle for the Ultimate Glow

ICYMI, glass skin is old news. What you should be aiming for is the enviable mirror skin!

Although both glass skin and mirror skin are desirable K-beauty trends, there are subtle differences that elevate mirror skin to the next level.

Glass skin: Imagine a pane of flawless glass — that’s the essence of glass skin. It’s all about achieving a poreless, even-toned, and translucent complexion with a healthy, lit-from-within glow. This requires intense hydration and a meticulous skincare routine to remove blemishes and refine texture.

Mirror skin: Think of a crystal-clear mirror reflecting light. Mirror skin takes the core principles of glass skin — a flawless, dewy base — and adds an extra layer of luminosity. It’s about achieving a complexion so incredibly reflective, it practically acts as a mirror.

Why Mirror Skin Wins

Mirror skin goes beyond a subtle sheen. It aims for a truly reflective, almost glass-like surface, offering a more dramatic and captivating glow.

It also features a multi-dimensional radiance (forget “glow from within”) that reflects light from all angles, creating a visage that appears even more flawless!

Unlike glass skin, which can be challenging for oily skin types, mirror skin is more versatile and suitable for all skin types since it embraces a healthy amount of natural dewiness.

Remember, healthy skin is the foundation. Both trends prioritise a consistent skincare routine focused on hydration and even tone.

But if you’re looking for the most show-stopping, ultra-reflective glow, then mirror skin might be your new K-beauty obsession!

How to Get Mirror Skin With the Lancôme Clarifique Double Treatment Essence

Mirror skin might sound like a mythical feat, but with dedication and the right tools, it’s absolutely achievable.

Beauty influencers and experts will say that there is a list of steps to achieve skin clarity: double cleanse, exfoliate regularly, use hydrating toners, apply lightweight essences and moisturisers, incorporate targeted serums with brightening ingredients, protect your skin with SPF, and stick to a healthy diet with ample (beauty) sleep.

Sounds a little extensive, time-consuming, and high-commitment? Here’s where the Lancôme Clarifique Double Treatment Essence comes in.

Key breakthroughs:

  • Enhanced enzyme action: Infused with 50% more beech bud extract, the essence unlocks the skin’s natural enzymatic processes for optimal brightening and exfoliation (four million cells exfoliated faster daily!).
  • Next-level hydration: A groundbreaking discovery by Lancôme reveals the role of the prolyl endopeptidase (PREP) enzyme in boosting skin hydration. This counteracts the drying effects of exfoliation.
  • Complete clarity spectrum: A powerful blend of four pro-peeling acids targets all levels of the epidermis, refining pores, controlling oiliness, polishing the skin, and promoting cell renewal.

The ingredients might seem too intense or powerful, but Lancôme had our skin’s health in mind when crafting the watery phase essence, prioritising comfort.
