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.

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.

Favourite Makeup & Beauty Products of Sex and The City Girls. Screenshots from the Show

I know that some of you don’t like Sex and the City so don’t bother reading this post;)  I already wrote why I like this show : “because of their friendship and because of nice places and clothes”.

Did you ever wonder what  beauty brands Carrie, Samantha, Miranda and Charlotte use? When I was watching Sex and the City series again (in March) I coudln’t help myself spotting different makeup items. So I got a great idea… To make screenshots of all such products! Unfortunately, I came up with this idea only when I was already watching the 3rd season but I remember what brands I saw, so no worries 😉
