Guerlain has launched a new Primer or in other words, there is a new addition to the Guerlain L’Essentiel range. Here is the link to my detailed article from last year about the L’Essentiel Foundation. Guerlain L’Essentiel Pore Minimizer & Shine-Control Primer is a fresh, lightweight, and mattifying primer. Co-ordinating with the range, L’Essentiel puts 97% naturally-derived ingredients to work without compromising with the performance.

Guerlain L'Essentiel Pore Minimizer & Shine-Control Primer review

The primer is very lightweight, looks and feels very fresh on the skin. 1-2 drops are enough for my face and it blends in nicely into the skin without any residue. For my combination skin, this primer has worked pretty well to control the appearance of excess shine to balance skin and minimize the appearance of pores. It does not totally erase the pores or hides – which is not something real and natural but it makes the look of pores minimal. As I prefer a natural radiant makeup look, so this primer works pretty well with L’Essentiel Foundation as well as other foundations with a glowy finish. I apply this primer on my oily areas of the face – usually my t-zone, it makes the overall look very natural matte with minimized look of pores and shine is controlled.

Also, another important thing I have noticed is that this primer does increase the longevity of the makeup especially the base. I can not comment on how it will work on dry skin types for controlling the excess sebum but it definitely works to minimize the look of pores. For normal, combination, and oily skin types, this primer is an easy choice. And especially if you love L’Essentiel foundation, this primer makes a great pair.

The key ingredients that deliver the major specialties of this primer include Avocado Extract to help absorb excess sebum to keep skin appearing matte all day long and promote shine-free skin day after day and White Cocoa Bean Extract to help refine the look of pores and supports skin’s natural balance and barrier. Yacon Juice improves skin defence and balances the skin’s ecosystem. There is a subtle nice fresh scent to the primer when applied and dissipates very fast.

With skincare and makeup ingredients included in this newest launch from Guerlain, this is an easy pick-me-up to increase the wear time of makeup, to minimize the look of pores, and to control excess sebum and shine.

The bullet’s ergonomic design allows ultra-precise application for a flawless, lip-enhancing result.

Abeille Royale Youth Watery Oil in limited edition cherry blossom packaging is available in 50ml. This oil has been a regular in my skincare routine for over 5 years and still my favourite. I have shared many times about this oil on this blog as well as my Instagram. Linking my detailed post here, this oil is a must-try and must-have – never breaks me out, very lightweight, absorbs quickly, keeps my skin look youthful and radiant. I use this oil – few drops at a time – after my serum and before my moisturizer, it layers beautifully with other products in my routine. It also works amazingly when I add a few drops of this oil into my foundation to give a little extra radiance.

Bee products are some of the world’s most effective natural repairing and healing substances. Guerlain Research has been working continuously with honey and royal jelly to create Abeille Royale: a skincare programme that scientifically proves their exceptional capacity to minimize the visible signs of ageing on the skin. As amazing is the cause that Guerlain is supporting and a part of, I would really like to explain a little about the history and cause before I shift my focus to the two new moisturizers I have started included in my skincare routine.

Honey is the key ingredient – for its healing power and revitalizing properties – not just for ingestion but also for application on the skin. There are two kinds of honey that are exclusive to Guerlain:

Ouesssant Honey – The quest for the most powerful bee products led Guerlain to Ouessant, one of the world’s purest ecosystems. Designated a biosphere reserve by UNESCO, this island off the coast of France is home to the Black Bee, a native species of the island. These bees produce a honey of unrivalled purity and truly exceptional properties: a “Grand Cru” honey. Rich in amino acids, trace elements and high in fructose-content, this honey offers the essential ingredients that are vital in the repair process of skin tissue.

Guerlain Exclusive Royal Jelly –
Royal Jelly is the most precious substance to be produced by bees. It is reserved exclusively for feeding queen bees and offers regal nourishment for the skin as well. Guerlain developed its own Exclusive Royal Jelly in order to guarantee its quality and purity. Guerlain has chosen to host the 200 hives, exclusively dedicated to the ABEILLE ROYALE skincare range, in La Ferté Saint-Aubin in Sologne, a region renowned for its wild fauna. This Royal Jelly is rich in exceptional nutrients and is a natural source of carbohydrates, proteins, lipids and vitamins. It is produced in a protected environment to ensure that the Royal Jelly is of optimal quality and to guarantee complete traceability.

There is beautiful video (linked here) which I have watched a few times already which gives a visual treat to the eyes and to depict the story behind the Black Bee of Ouessant, whose royal jelly grants us the most healing benefits.

Being Bee Eco-responsible, Guerlain believes that transparency and sustainability are the keys to preserve, develop, and pass our unique beauty heritage onto future generations. Therefore, Guerlain decided to entirely remake Abeille Royale’s jars for a design that’s more in step with nature. These jars are lighter, more compacts and offer up all the same capacity, just using 90% recycled glass.

‘In the name of beauty,

Guerlain is committed to

a more sustainable world.’

Guerlain was kind enough to send me the Guerlain eco-hive which is a sustainable and recyclable miniature hive containing the Abeille Royale moisturizers. The hive can be repurposed as a storage chest or for a beautiful display on the vanity. There are also two frames which hold the moisturizers in the hive and can be repurposed as photo frames.

Review of the New Guerlain Abeille Royale Night Cream and Guerlain Abeille Royale Day Cream

‘The skin acts as a sensory interface with the outside world. Environmental factors and stress have a negative impact on the skin’s youthfulness, disrupting skin cell function, including cutaneous nerve cells. This is known as cutaneous “neuro-ageing” and it causes the signs of ageing to appear more quickly. 

Inspired by the latest discoveries in neuroscience, BlackBee Repair technology expands the skin’s self-regeneration capacity for more comprehensive efficacy on the visible signs of ageing. It is incorporated for the first time into the Abeille Royale range of creams for smoother, firmer and more radiant skin. BlackBee Repair Technology is enriched with a derivative of vitamin C with revitalizing properties to help visibly enhance the radiance of the complexion.’

Review of the New Guerlain Abeille Royale Night Cream and Guerlain Abeille Royale Day Cream

Guerlain Abeille Royale Day Cream combines BlackBee Repair technology and a vitamin C derivative to firm the skin, smooth wrinkles and fine lines and visibly enhance the radiance of the complexion. The cream’s silky, exceptionally fine texture offers optimal comfort without leaving a greasy film.

Guerlain Abeille Royale Night Cream combines BlackBee Repair technology and a vitamin E derivative to help combat slackening. It firms the skin and smoothes wrinkles and fine lines. The cream’s balm-like texture melts gently on the skin, without leaving a greasy film.

Both the Night and Day creams are suitable for all skin types, even the sensitive ones. To extend my ritual from Youth Watery Oil (reviewed here) and Double R Serum (reviewed here), these day and night creams complete my Guerlain Abeille Royale Skincare routine -my skin looks fresh, supple, and youthful.
