Clarins Cleansers Round Up

The other day I was  going through my drafts for Makeup4all, and I was shocked that some of them are from 2009…And the one that caught my attention was this round-up of Clarins cleansers (you can read more details by clicking the “review” links).

Back in 2014 I have posted part I of toners suitable for my skin type (dry and sensitive), and promised to share about the cleansers. So it is better late than never, right?

Clarins French Skincare Cleansers Review Makeup4all

Here we go:

 Pure Melt Cleansing Gel (review)

This is probably my favourite cleanser from Clarins, it smalls amazing, works great for  massaging the face and turns into milk after you mix it with water.

Daily Energizer Cleansing Gel (review)

Clarins Multi-Active Jour Cream Review

Considering that I have already written about Clarins twice this week, and the fact that they are adding an eye cream to the Multi-Active line, it seemed like a good idea to publish the feature which was in my drafts for several months already. And we are talking about Clarins  New Multi-Active Day cream for all skin types.

clarins-multi-active-jour-and-night-cream-review

I am a big fan of Clarins creams, especially the HydraQuench (I’ve been buying that range for years), and also the Daily Energizer which I’ve had more than once, as well, so I was happy to get a sample of the latest launch, 46 weeks ago (according to my Instagram, ahem). But it is better late than never, right? Plus, now I have a better impression, as I have already used the cream up, as you can tell from the photos.

According to the brand, Multi-Active Day cream  “prevents and visibly corrects the appearance of fine lines thanks to new Myrothamnus extract. The new extract minimises the impact of daily stress to help keep skin smooth and radiant. With technology powered by plant extracts and the latest breakthroughs in botanical research, these treatments visibly diminish the first signs of ageing, restore radiance, hydrate and maintain younger looking skin.”

My first impression is that it is a

Caudalie Vinosource Overnight Recovery Oil Review

I’ve promised to be better with my skincare reviews, so here is another one. I’ve just used the very last drop of Caudalie  Vinosource Overnight Recovery Oil  recently so here is my impression.

First of all, I really loved the glass packaging and the beautiful colour & design, it looks like a high-end  product with a very good price tag, compared to similar products, £26 from from Feel Unique and  $52 from Sephora for 30 ml. It also comes with a great dropper which allows you to us all the product, without any waste.

The other thing which I absolutely adore is the rose scent. Regular readers know that I am a die-hard fan. But don’t worry, it is not too overpowering or overwhelming.

Caudalie Vinosource Overnight Recovery Oil ReviewAs for the oil itself it has a very good list of the ingredients, and I was hoping for a miracle-in-a-bottle kind of product since it is marketed for very dry skin.

Although I did like it, I found that it

NUXE Reve de Miel Baume Levres Ultra-Nourrissant Ultra-Nourishing Lip Balm Review. Rave

The thing with cult beauty products is that sometimes I don’t want them because everyone else already owns them.That may sound stupid to some of you, but that’s how things are for me.

This is why I’ve bought the famous NUXE Reve de Miel Baume Levres Ultra-Nourrissant Ultra-Nourishing Lip Balm only this month, I know.

NUXE Reve de Miel Baume Levres Ultra-Nourrissant Ultra-Nourishing Lip BalmYes, of course, I had to take a photo with a peony, I am obsessed.

And, it is an instant love. Luckily, right now my lips are in a good condition, so I can’t report how this balm deals with winter-cracked lips. But I’m really pleased with the effect I get now. The formula is rich and nourishing, but I don’t find it to be greasy or oily, plus it doesn’t just sit on top of the surface, it does it job properly, leaving the lips feeling smoother and softer.

I love applying the balm before

Clarins Double Serum Review. Rave

I am a huge fan of Clarins skincare, as you all know, so that is why I was excited to try their Double Serum. This was the most promoted Clarins product in years and the campaign was huge.  There were a lot of different reviews, a lot of people raved, some  were put off by the mineral oil. And I’ve decided to wait, and use up the whole bottle before sharing my experience.

Clarins Double Serum Review RaveAs you can tell from the photo above, I did use up the whole bottle. And… I did love this serum a lot.

It is  a two-phased system Hydric + Lypidic system, which means that you mix it before applying to the face. It is labelled as “age control with 20 anti-ageing pure plant extracts”, and I was told that it will be more effective if you are 25+.

So what is my impression?

This AW season I was sick twice, and this product literally saved my skin! You know how the skin can react to a long-time cold? Yes, that. And this serum was the only thing I’ve used morning and night. It literally brought my dry, flaky and dull skin “back to life”.

And what about the general effect?
