This Multitasking Glow-Boosting Serum Peels and Firms at Once


Peony Lim

Guerlain’s new Double R Renew & Repair Serum (£105-£139 RRP) is one of those products that looks luxe with its gold detailing, yet you wonder whether it will really deliver. Well, let me tell you that I am completely addicted to this multitasking product. It’s one serum, but it contains two chambers filled with different actives. One side is focused on peeling away the dull, dead skin, while the other side lifts. It’s grounded in science too. The team at Guerlain spent eight years looking into one gene, the TIEG1, which is a bit like a skin repair “contractor”; it encourages proper skin structure (read: plumper and firmer). This serum gives that gene a helping hand, whilst containing acids to brighten and re-texturise. 

Myself and influencer Peony Lim have been road testing the serum for quite a few weeks now. Where I have oily/combination skin that’s pretty spot-prone, Lim has a dry, sensitive complexion. But despite our different skin types, we both had pretty impressive results.
