Clarins Extra-Comfort Foundation (£35 for 30 ml) comes in a glass jar which is very chic and luxurious to look at, but not very practical (especially when you are in a hurry) in so many ways. But that is the only thing that’s not my favourite in this foundation, everything else I adore.
“Anti-Ageing, Replenishes, Illuminates.” This is how the brand describes the product, and I would agree.
I have dry skin, and I love everything [yes, I do realize that I've already said that] about this foundation, it is so good! I don’t even know where to start…
The Illuminating claims? It delivers! I was sick at home for a week and this foundation instantly (yes, the name speaks for itself) transformed my skin from dull into a glowing and polished version (of course, with the help of the right skincare). Seriously, I wasRead More
I am personally a “Touche Eclat girl” when it comes to under eye products, although it is a highlighter, not a concealer, I find that it works for me! But sometimes, that is not enough. If only I had more hours of sleep.
I have very dry skin, so can’t imagine putting heavy, full coverage concealers/correctors under the eyes, as those would make me look 10 years older.
That’s why I was curious to try Clarins’ Insant Concealer.
I have shade No2, which is described as 02 pinky-beige, and which is a perfect match for my skin tone.
I love the design of this concealer, you don’t have to put your fingers in it, or use the attached brush, like with most concealer-type products, so it’s a good one to have in a kit, too.
The formula isRead More
One of the reasons, why I love Clarins so much is the fact that they often have amazing gifts with purchase! Eau Ressourçante Fragrance was one of them, actually.
Eau Dynamisante is probably the most famous scent from the brand and I have already written about it, but realized that I never mentioned this pretty “blue” offering.
The main notes are Basil, Iris, Cedarwood andRead More
There are a lot of discussions whether or not eye cream is a necessity. I personally believe in eye creams and use them regularly since my early twenties. I have very dry skin and a good eye cream is a must have for me, otherwise, the delicate skin in that area feels dry and looks wrinkly.
My latest eye cream love was this Lierac Diopticreme and in July I’ve picked up Clarins Special Eye Contour Balm Dry Skin (£27/$35 for 20 ml).
This is a rich cream that is formulated especially for dry skin, but it doesn’t feel heavy and doesn’t take forever to soak in . I personally find that it moisturizes, nourishes and optically makes the skin look smoother and, younger (since it visually improves the appearance).
I don’t exactly haveRead More
I really wanted a cleansing product that I could use as a part of my morning routine, when I am in a hurry and don’t have time (and don’t want/need) to wash my face with a a balm and lot of “massage action”. So Clarins Water Comfort One-Step Cleanser with Peach Essential Water seemed like a perfect one.
I have picked it up several weeks ago and am very happy that I did!
It smells absolutely amazing (of peaches), is gentle and leaves my skin skin feeling clean and fresh, without drying it out or irritating.. In fact, the skin does feel soft and smooth afterwards.
This is just a perfect product for my morning routine, but I wouldn’tRead More
