Guerlain Orchidee Imperiale Day Cream

A Unique Sensory Experience


This new application technique was developed by Sophia Kremser, Design and Training Manager at the Institut Guerlain, 68 Champs-Élysées, which for the first time combines massages and breathing exercises.

BEFORE APPLICATION: Breathe to prepare the skin. Apply slow, deep pressure points with the fingertips on the chin, the corners of the lips, under the nose, between the eyebrows, above the arch of the eyebrow and at the temples. Breathe in as you apply the pressure and breathe out when the pressure is released.

APPLICATION OF THE CREAM: Smooth. Place a small amount of cream on the fingertips and warm between the fingers. Apply the product, smoothing the skin from the centre of the face outwards: over the chin, cheeks, forehead and nose.

MASSAGE AFTER APPLICATION: Energise. Take a fist with both hands. Place your fists on your cheeks. Make a firm upward circular movement while breathing out deeply. Then carry out this movement along the outline of the face, the forehead, neck and then the décolleté. 

MASSAGE AFTER APPLICATION: Relax. Place your left hand on your forehead. Your right hand is placed on your right cheek. Gently slide both hands simultaneously over the contours of your face to the left. As you move your hands, tilt your head towards the left and breathe deeply. Do the same thing on the other side. Repeat this movement three times.
