Guerlain Orchidee Imperiale Rich Cream is an exceptional complete care product that has been renowned for more than a decade for its effectiveness on the signs of skin ageing and the sensory pleasure of its texture. It offers women the best that orchids and science can bring to skin longevity.
Thanks to the discovery of the prodigious powers of a duo of orchids, the Rich Cream combats all the visible signs of ageing even more effectively.
Its exclusive complex, enriched with precious Abyssinian oil, supports the skin’s self-moisturizing abilities to teach dry skin how to function normally again.
Selected for its exceptional purity, Guerlain’s precious Abyssinian oil is extracted from the seeds of the Crambe abyssinica plant in an eco-friendly process. Rich in omega 3, 6 and 9, it also features remarkable lipid-replenishing properties, and provides a silky-smooth finish. The Rich Cream combines intense nourishment with a non-greasy texture for skin that is soft and comfortable.
The contemporary design of the jar displays Guerlain's commitment to environmental excellence: an object of beauty that minimises its impact on the environment for a more sustainable approach to luxury.
Experts at the Guerlain Institute have developed an exclusive technique which, combines professional massage with breathing exercises to maximise the benefits of the Rich Cream. This unique sensory experience is also an opportunity to spend quality time reconnecting with yourself, to restore harmony and inner balance.
1- Before application: Breathe & prepare the skin
On a clean, dry face that has been previously washed with Orchidee Imperiale Cleansing Foam, apply pressure slowly and firmly with the fleshy part of the fingers on the chin, the corner of the mouth, under the nose, between the eyebrows, above the arch of the eyebrows and at the level of the temples. Breathe in as you press and breathe out on release.
2- Applying the Rich Cream: Smooth
After applying your lotion and serum, take some cream with the spatula and apply with the fleshy part of the fingers to the chin, cheeks, forehead and nose, taking care to smooth the skin outwards from the middle of the face.
3- After application:
Clench your fists and place them on your cheeks. Pressing firmly, work upwards with a rotational movement while breathing out forcibly. Repeat on the jawline, forehead, neck and finally the decollete in time with the out-breath.
Place your left hand on your forehead and your right hand on your right cheek. Gently slide both hands simultaneously towards the left around the contours of the face. At the same time, lean your head towards the left and breathe deeply. Do the same on the other side. Repeat three times.
The Orchid, a rare and precious raw ingredient, is the very essence of the exceptional complete care range Orchidee Imperiale. A genuine longevity prodigy, the Orchid is the most developed species in the plant kingdom. Convinced of its exceptional potential, Guerlain set up its first research centre ever to be devoted to an ingredient: the Orchidarium®
