True to its name, I found the Orlane Super Moisturizing Light Cream to be both light and very moisturizing. The name seems paradoxical, as light creams tend to have ephemeral moisturizing capacity, while moisturizing creams tend to have a heavy feel. Somehow, the Orlane Super Moisturizing Light cream combined the best of both worlds. The Orlane Super Moisturizing Light Cream is dispensed from a pump and has more of a lotion feel, rather than a cream feel. The consistency of the moisturizer is very light and like a gel lotion. It spreads easily over the skin and sinks in quickly so you feel as if it will disappear. However, if you touch the surface of your skin, you can feel the smooth plush surface of the moisturizer barrier that is protecting your skin. The result is long-lasting, comfortable, and effortless moisturized skin. The Orlane Super Moisturizing Light Cream is an absolute delight to wear and serves as a great base for makeup too.
The Orlane Super Light Moisturizing Serum ($165 for 1.7 oz) is sold online and at Nieman Marcus. Thanks for reading! Have you tried Orlane Paris? Are any of their products on your wish list? What are some of your favorite French skincare brands?

I can only imagine that it could be something similar to estee lauder's perfectionist c+ serum :-)ReplyDelete
Hi Penny, the EL Perfectionist sounds wonderful too!Delete
Oh wow. I was on board until I saw the price! I've passed by the Orlane counter at our Sears many times but didn't know much about the brand. Now I feel like I can stop and test out some products without being afraid. :)ReplyDelete
Hi Liz, it did come as a surprise to me too! Perhaps it is the price of perfection? I think the brand does have quite a following. I'd love to dabble in a counter if I can find one nearby too! (P.S. It sounds like Canadian Sears are different from the ones here in the US) :)Delete
I love a good luxury moisturizer and would love to try Orlane based on your review. I have walked by their counter at Neiman Marcus so many times, but did not know much about this brand. My favorite face cream right now is from Natura Bisse, a Spanish line.ReplyDelete
Hi Rola, now you have an excuse to stop by the counter :) I hadn't heard of Natura Bisse, but now it's on my radar too :)Delete
Hello dear, this product sounds amazing, though it's way out of my budget :-/ReplyDelete
I've just come across your lovely blog and hope we can follow each other.
Let me know! xo, Coco
Thanks for the comment Coco!Delete
