In this article, we introduce the new range of Payot, Harmonie, through an easy and efficient beauty routine.
A few months ago, we presented one of our favorite French Brands, Payot. Indeed, the brand celebrated not long ago its 100th birthday, which makes it one of the oldest existing French cosmetic brands. Dr.Nadia Payot was a pioneer in the development of cosmetics, by creating in 1920 her first line of beauty treatments, associated with innovative facial exercises. If you want to know more about the brand and it’ history, click here to see our previous article.
Even though the brand keeps producing some of its most famous signature products, like the iconic “pâte grise”, Payot is also a very innovative brand, with a creative research team. Based in Paris, the laboratory brings together researchers and scientists focusing on developing effective and sensorial products. The performance of the products is proved by clinical studies carried out under dermatological control, and consumer tests that evaluate women’s satisfaction. It is also important to mention that, inspired by apothecary know-how, the brand strives to source ingredients that respect the environment and are made in France. They are meticulously selected for absolute effectiveness and tolerance.
There is no such thing as a single "correct" skin-care routine, but there's definitely an optimal way to apply your products. There are nowadays some routines with more than 10 daily steps, but there are not always the most efficient ones. Minimalist routines with the essential three steps are most of the time very effective (and also save your time and money). That’s particularly the case of today’s Payot Harmonie routine, which is designed to furnish a simple yet very effective beauty routine, thanks to the quality of the products.
Cleansing is the unmissable, and often the first step of any beauty routine. A cleanser gets rid of dead skin, pollutants, oils, dirt, and bacteria. It also prepares your skin to absorb the active ingredients in your other products.
This lotion, suitable for all skin types, contains 92,8% of ingredients of natural origin. It acts as both cleansing and make-up removing. It also moisturizes your skin and helps prevent the appearance of dark spots. In terms of sensoriality, it has a water texture with a non-sticky finish. The fragrance is not strong but has delicate notes of lemon, jasmine, and lily of the valley.
You can apply it morning and evening all over the face and neck using a cotton pad. No need to rinse it.
Designed to nourish, protect, and hydrate your skin, a face serum is a great next step after cleansing and before moisturizing. It amps up your skin care routine by offering a bigger, more powerful dose of active ingredients.
This gel-in-cream suitable for any skin type illuminates the complexion and hydrates the skin. But it is particularly designed to prevent and reduce dark spots, thanks to niacinamide and Vitamine C derivative. You can apply in the morning before moisturizer and alone in the evening as a booster treatment
This product suitable for all skin types is a “3-in-one”: it acts first as a moisturizer/day cream, thanks to hyaluronic acid. But it also protects your skin against UV rays (with its SPF 30 protection), and corrects the appearance of dark spots. Last but not least, its moonstone extracts add radiance and luminosity to the complexion. It has a lightweight texture with a powdery, non-sticky, and non-greasy finish. You can apply it in the morning on cleansed face and neck, after putting your serum.
We hope that this review gave you a good overview of Harmonie Range. You can find these products, as well as most of Payot's cosmetics ranges at Parapharmacie Monge. Check our special offer here.
