Payot have recently added two new products to their Creme No2 Range. This line of products is designed for sensitive and sensitised skin.
I really like the Payot range in general and as my own skin is sensitive, more so as I get older, I was very keen to get my hands on these two new products and try them for myself.
I have tried several other products from this particular range within the brand and have been very impressed. In fact, one of the moisturisers – Crème n°2 Cachemire – is a current favourite, so I was expecting the same quality and results. Not surprisingly, I was not disappointed.
The first product I tried was the Crème n°2 Eau Lactée Micellaire. This product is used to cleanse the skin and remove make up.
The first thing I noticed was how instantly cooling and soothing it felt. For those of you that radiate a lot of heat from the skin, flush easily or live in hot climates, this feature should appeal. The product also seems to combine this cooling, soothing sensation with a very fresh feeling which I would normally associate with products that are more stimulating.
This is no-rinse product, simply use cotton to wipe the cleanser over your skin, so this “fresh” feeling is an important feature of the cleanser.
The cleanser is a light texture, more like a lotion, and my own preference is for heavier products. If you don’t like products that feel too heavy or greasy, then you should like this cleanser a lot.
Other than the inclusion of Micelles, which gently cleanse the skin, this product contains prebiotics to defend against harmful skin bacteria, and probiotics to support the prebiotics and rebalance the skin.
The second new product I trailed is the Crème n°2 L’Essentielle.
This is a product that you would use like a moisturiser and has the feel of a beautiful melt-in balm. There is no discernible fragrance and also feels instantly soothing on application, but without the freshening sensation of the cleanser. The texture of this product is absolutely lovely and provides long lasting comfort and hydration.
The Payot formula including the prebiotics and probiotics is also found in this product to soothe, calm and defend the skin.
Both of these new offerings by Payot are of the quality you would expect from a French brand with such a strong history and reputation and I would not hesitate to recommend them to my own clientele, family, friends and beauty community.
