Review: Decleor Harmonie Calm Soothing Milky Cream

Disclosure: PR sample

Decleor's new Harmonie Calm range is designed to be suitable for sensitive, reactive, fragile or irritable skin.  It includes two moisturisers, an eye treatment, and a mask, all of which promise a long lasting and immediate soothing effect on sensitive skin.  I was given a pot of the richer cream, Soothing Milky Cream, to try out.

I've not got the most sensitive skin in the world, but I do find that some products cause burning, itching, or make me break out.  I was pleased to find that applying this very lightly textured gel-cream to my skin resulted in absolutely no reaction; my skin was left feeling soft, quenched, and devoid of any residue.

Despite being a very light textured gel-cream, a single application in the morning keeps my skin feeling well moisturised and calm all day. The cream itself is beautifully spreadable; you need a very small amount to moisture the whole face, and while it does need a bit of working in with the fingertips, once absorbed, it doesn't feel at all heavy.

I've been using the cream for the past few months, and I've been very impressed by the effect it's had on my skin.  It provides excellent hydration, feels very light, and mixes very well with other products such as sunscreens.  Although I don't suffer from full on rosacea, my cheeks do show a bit of redness, which has definitely diminished over the time I've been using this cream.  Overall, the effect has been very calming; I've had no random angry-skin days, and very few breakouts.  I'll keep using this cream until the very end of the jar, and would definitely repurchase.

Decleor's Harmonie Calm range is available from Decleor's website, where 50ml of cream will cost you £46 - expensive, yes, but given that my pot has lasted three months so far and isn't quite finished, not so unreasonable.


  1. ha! finally, a sensitive face cream! i must really check them out although 46 pounds is a pretty great price to pay :-S

  2. I reckon it's worth it, if you struggle with finding creams that are calming enough - it really is a pleasure to use!

  3. Ooh, I love Decleor! That moisturiser sounds like it might be good for a friend of mine.
