For soothed skin, stick to the basics!

Do you experience:

Redness when you get out of the shower?

Skin that feels tight when the weather is too hot or too cold?

Tingling after applying certain cosmetics?

Redness when you feel emotional?

More than half of women say they have sensitive skin.

Appearing for a few days or over a long period of time, skin sensitivity can result in invisible symptoms such as tingling and tightness etc. as well as visible signs such as widespread or localised redness.

Spa visual

Experience our Gentle Soothing Skincare designed for sensitive skin.

Whether you choose a beauty routine, meditation class or DIY tea station... treat yourself to a relaxing moment all year round.


Calm-Essentiel method

Choose the right time for this self-care moment in a relaxed setting.


Your breathing helps to bring about calmness. Warm the product in your hands, then with your palms open in front of your face, breathe deeply through your nose and exhale slowly through your mouth.


Apply the skincare products to the face using light strokes followed by gentle pressure, with hands at the right temperature to avoid thermal shocks. Don’t forget the neck and décolleté area.


Finish with a cocoon wrap by placing the hands around the ears and temples while pressing for 5 seconds. A comforting and relaxing experience.

A vital scientific discovery

After 3 years of research into sensitive skin, the Clarins Laboratories, in collaboration with research institutes - including one specialising in environmental pollution - go further in understanding the mechanisms of the skin’s hyper-sensitivity.

Together they have made a major discovery: the decisive role sensory receptors play in causing the skin’s hyper-sensitivity.

An innovative formula in harmony with the skin

clary sage

Identified from 75 plants studied by ethnobotanist Jean-Pierre Nicolas, who has worked in close collaboration with Clarins since 2004, clary sage is a plant with beneficial soothing properties which has been used for centuries.

Clarins Innovation: sclareolide

The Clarins Laboratories have extracted a purified molecule from the flowers and leaves of the clary sage: sclareolide, which harmonises with the skin and allows it to be instantly soothed and protected.

Soothing Emulsion with texture

Soothing Emulsion:

The emulsion instantly calms skin discomfort. Its creamy caress-like texture is enriched with organic camellia oil: it melts into the skin, intensely hydrates and protects against environmental damage.

Its added extra: It also contains white horehound extract, which helps skin to fight against damage caused by pollution.

Restoring Treatment Oil with texture

Restoring Treatment Oil:

A nourishing oil enriched with organic camellia oil and organic apricot oil, which is perfect for leaving skin soothed (Canada: less sensitive), moisturised, soft and supple.

Its added extra: It can also be used on its own as a cure over 10-20 days for a reset of your skin. For the most reactive skin that can no longer tolerate any other skincare products, this is the perfect answer.

Clary sage

It was a divine herb for the Romans, who used it as a “wellness plant.” In France, Charlemagne established its cultivation in gardens to improve people’s health. During the Renaissance, it was also used to soothe the skin.

Soothing Repairing Balm with texture

Soothing Repairing Balm:

This balm creates a protective barrier that soothes and comforts the skin. Skin is soothed, repaired & nourished. Day after day, its tolerance threshold is improved.

Its added extra: This product can be used on all weakened areas of the body and face.
