Soothes. Hydrates. Protects.

For all types of sensitive, weakened skin.

Do you experience:

Redness when you get out of the shower?

Skin that feels tight when the weather is too hot or too cold?

Tingling after applying certain cosmetics?

Redness when you feel emotional?

More than half of women say they have sensitive skin.

Occasionally or over a long period of time, skin sensitivity can result in invisible symptoms such as tingling, tightness, and itchiness amongst others, as well as visible signs such as widespread or localised redness or flaky skin.

The Clarins answer

Calm-Essentiel method

Choose the right time for this self-care moment in a relaxed setting.


Your breathing helps to bring about calmness. Warm the product in your hands, then with your palms open in front of your face, breathe deeply through your nose and exhale slowly through your mouth.


Apply the skincare products to the face using light strokes followed by gentle pressure, with hands at the right temperature to avoid thermal shocks. Don’t forget the neck and décolleté area.


Finish with a cocoon wrap by placing the hands around the ears and temples while pressing for 5 seconds. A comforting and relaxing experience.

A vital scientific discovery

After 3 years of research into sensitive skin, Clarins Laboratories, in collaboration with research institutes - including one specialising in environmental pollution - go further in understanding the mechanisms of the skin’s hyper-sensitivity.

Scientific video

Together they have made a major discovery: the decisive role sensory receptors play in causing the skin’s hyper-sensitivity.

An innovative formula in harmony with the skin

Clary sage

Identified from 75 plants studied by ethnobotanist Jean-Pierre Nicolas, who has worked in close collaboration with Clarins since 2004, clary sage is a plant with beneficial soothing properties which has been used for centuries.

Clarins Innovation: sclareolide

The Clarins Laboratories have extracted a purified molecule from the flowers and leaves of the clary sage: sclareolide, which harmonises with the skin and allows it to be instantly soothed and protected.

Soothing Emulsion with texture

Soothing Emulsion:

This emulsion instantly soothes skin discomfort. Its creamy, silky texture is enriched with organic camellia oil: it melts into the skin, intensely hydrates and protects against environmental damage.

Its added extra: It also contains white horehound extract, which helps skin to fight against damage caused by pollution, reducing further causes of skin sensitivity.

Redness Corrective Gel with texture

Redness Corrective Gel:

This fresh gel instantly soothes skin discomfort. Its texture melts into the skin and provides an instant sensation of well-being. The skin is immediately refreshed, comforted and even toned.

Its added extra: Its unique pearls and pigments will even out the redness in the complexion for a smoother, calmer look and feel to the skin.

Restoring Treatment Oil with texture

Restoring Treatment Oil:

A nourishing oil enriched with organic camellia oil and organic apricot oil, which is perfect for leaving skin soothed, moisturised, soft and supple.

Its added extra: It can also be used on its own as a cure over 2-3 weeks for a reset of your skin. For the most reactive skin that can no longer tolerate any other skincare products, this is the perfect answer.

Clary sage

It was a divine herb for the Romans, who used it as a “wellness plant.” In France, Charlemagne established its cultivation in gardens to improve health. During the Renaissance, it was also used to soothe the skin.

Soothing Repairing Balm with texture

Soothing Repairing Balm:

A universal skin-repair balm that intensely nourishes,soothes and repairs all weakened areas of skin over the face and body. With its “bandage-like” texture, this balm soothes and comforts the skin.
