So, after using up 2/3 of this moisturiser, I think it's time to give it a review. This is part of the basic skin care line (no special treatment or anything), which is sold in Cle de Peau Beaute boutiques and counters. It costs HKD $1000, i.e. USD $128, for 125ml in a plastic pump bottle.
A mult-benefit daytime emulsion that effectively protects skin against UV rays, dryness, and other environmental factors while encouraging a look of absolute vibrance.
tendre/gentle: for a light, gentle veil of moisture.

I use this as an usual day moisturiser, 1 or 2 pumps depending on skin and weather conditions, usually applied with hands. The beauty assistant instructed me to use this with their Cle de Peau Cotton, with 2 pumps - as far as I remember.
Texture of it is a medium thickness lotion, leaves a slight filmy feeling that disappears after an hour so so. Doesn't clash with other things I apply before or after it. Smells of soft floral fragrance, something like high-class hotel hand-soap, similar if not the same as the toner and the face wash (reviewed here).
For its claims;
- protects skin against UV rays **I didn't gain new sunspots, so I should be protected**
- dryness **not mositurising enough for my skin**
- other environmental factors **not sure what and how, but pollution in my city is still killing me**
- encouraging a look of absolute vibrance **have some sort of sheen/film hence I guess this is yes?**
- light, gentle veil of moisture **yes, but only 'light' and 'gentle', not enough**
Overall Rating: 15/25
Recommend? Yes if you want to spend insane amount of $ on a lotion that has mild UV protection and nothing else!
Repurchase? No - a definite negative.
To conclude this review, I'd say this is a very decent basic product, would be perfect for normal to perfect skin who doesn't have a budget and love splurging unnecessarily. Honestly, how many of us fall into that consumer group? XD
I am definitely keeping the bottle as it is really handy and elegant. You can expect me refilling it with my Naruko emulsion soon! ;)
