It’s time for June’s favourites, and somehow this time it is all about Clarins. I have bought quite a few products from the brand and have been sent some samples, and most products were incredible. After all it is one of my favourite brands for a reason. There are also two beauty tools, self tanning drops and bath salts.
Here we go.
Let’s start with makeup, as there are only two products that really stood out to me. Technically three, but two are the same product just different shades. Clarins Blush & Bronzing Compact (review and swatches) my love for this bronzer is still going strong. Now that I have a tan it looks amazing on, warms up the complexion and adds some definition.
As for the Clarins Waterproof Eyeshadow Shimmering Cream Colour (review and swatches) they are phenomenal, as I’ve already said. Extremely long-lasting and incredibly beautiful on the eyes. Just make sure you don’t apply too much, as they can look a bit dry. I’ve been wearing 03 Silver Taupe at the end of May and beginning of June when I still had a very pale complexion but now 04 Copper Brown is my favourite. It looks perfect now, am I a bronze goddess already?

We all love personalised approach when it comes to everything including beauty, don’t we? This is why it is awesome to see brands having that approach. I am personally a fan of Concoction hair care brand, and now it is awesome to see Clarins and their Boosters.
What are these?
Clarins Boosters are basically high-concentrated formulas which are created for a certain concern. You simply add several drops to the cream of your choice. There are three options to choose from:
- Tones are re-energises the skin
- Minimises signs of fatigue
- Revives radiance
- Reduces feelings of discomfort
- Optimises skin strength
- Minimises the appearance of redness
I am not a big fan of all those “get in shape in 10 days” and “bikini ready in a week” features which are all over the Internet and in press every summer. But there are ways to make your skin look “summer ready”, as cliche as it sounds. And, since it is a beauty website, here is a step by step guide on what products and procedures I swear by.
I am a big fan of dry skin brushing, and I know that a lot of models swear by it, too. My personal favourite is definitely Elemis Skin Brush. It is not the cheapest option but really worth the money, in my opinion. I actually have two.
Coffee scrubs will also help in terms of making your skin softer and smoother. They should also help in reducing cellulite, at least I read such feedback from people who have been using them long enough.

The product that I really love is Clarins Blush & Bronzing Compact (£30). It is absolutely huge, comes in a nice packaging and with a decently sized mirror. You get three shades of bronzer with one being shimmery and two – matte, there is also an apricot blush. You can use each shade individually, or mix. The texture of the blush is softer than the texture of the bronzers so when products are mixed together they give you that nice luminous glow and created that sun-kissed effect. This bronzer actually made it to my monthly favourites.
Although I have pretty light skin tone, I don’t find it to be muddy or too orange on me. But I use it lightly, obviously.
I think Blush & Bronzing Compact is aRead More
