Clarins recently sent me a few new goodies to try from both their make up and skincare lines. As you know, I love Clarins, so can’t wait to share these with you, my lovely readers.
First up are two goodies from the new make-up collection that I’m wearing in the picture above.
The Joli Blush R470 (BUY) contains special tint pigments that give cheeks an ultra-pigmented rosy glow. The colour adjusts to any skin tone and has a fine, airy, soft & lightweight texture that allows the skin to breathe. The packaging is also exquisite. Four shades are available, and I was sent the bold “Cheeky Pink” to try and love how it adds a pop of colour to my cheeks.
I also got the Intense Lip Perfector R320 (BUY). This wet look glossy balm plumps lips while coating them with a wet look. I love the “Intense Smokey Rose” colour as it’s similar to the natural colour of my lips, so looks natural. The cushion applicator is designed to hug every curve of the lips as it dispenses the perfect amount of this sensory, melting gel for a uniform finish.
Our relationship with the sun is a little like a ‘love-hate’ relationship isn’t it? The sun can be our best friend (for the vitamin D and how it boosts our spirits along with enhancing our skin) but, the sun can also be our worst enemy. For this reason, Clarins decided to concentrate all its expertise into sun products that offer high and very high levels of protection.
I was sent the Dry Touch Sun Care Crème SPF 50 R415 (BUY) that’s enriched with antioxidants. This formula has a smooth, melting texture and hydrates the skin while leaving it with a matte finish. My daughter who surfs three times a week has been trying this and absolutely loves it. All skin types can use this, even the most sensitive.
Clarins has designed a new range of customized face scrubs with plant ingredients and exquisite, sensorial textures, for skin that feels like new… instantly! I was sent two to try out: The Fresh Scrub R455 (BUY) is a refreshing cream scrub that contains natural cellulose beads derived from wood. The scrub contains beads of two sizes – the larger to exfoliate skin and the finer ones to refine its texture. This scrub also hydrates the skin and has a lovely, refreshing cream-gel texture. This is a great option for those with thirsty, dehydrated skin types.
The Pure Scrub R455 (BUY) is a purifying gel scrub that’s perfect for combination to oily skin prone to minor blemishes, shine and dilated pores. This formula contains volcanic rock beads that gently remove dead skin cells while unclogging pores. It leaves the complexion matte and the pores tightened, thanks to an organic alpine willow herb extract.
