How was your weekend? 🙂
Today I’m reviewing 2 product’s by Clarins.
I don’t really ever buy/use anything from Clarins however i received some at Christmas (which also came with the beauty flash balm primer which is reviewed on our blog) 🙂
First of all both of these products are 100ml sized (gift sized) and I’ve just checked the Clarins website & to buy individually they are 200ml sizes.
Moisture-Rich Body Lotion
I don’t know a great deal about Clarins as a brand (a few of my friends & family use it) BUT this is such a great body lotion! Infact probably one of the best I’ve used in a long time 😀
It soaks into the skin in seconds leaving a moisturising, non-sticky kind of matte sheen to the skin.
It has a kind of mild citrus/peachy scent which would make sense as it’s prime ingredients are Peach milk, Shea, Candlenut oil & Orange blossom.
Clarins describe this best as….’Visibly minimises the signs of aging caused by the sun, cold, heating and air conditioning’ so not matter what your age is we are all exposed to these elements 😉
This is definitely a ‘considered purchase’ so maybe ask at your nearest Clarins counter for a sample to try it for yourself 🙂
Moisture-Rich body lotion 200ml – £30
Exfoliating Body scrub
One thing I hate is exfoliators with big ole beads in them that feel like your skin is being sanded to the bone! Well, this is quite the opposite…. It comes out the tube as more like a paste (kind of looks like hair removal cream!) and after polishing my skin in the shower the dry skin on my upper arms & shoulder’s was removed and smoothed after a long winter of heating and jumpers. The skin was beautifully soft and ‘de-scaled’.
The exfoliator uses natural bamboo powders instead of beads which really gives your skin that ultra polished glow 🙂
The scent is very hard to describe, very neutral & clean I guess I would say…very summery 😉
The scrub also won Instyle magazine’s ‘Best body exfoliator’ in 2014 and I can really see why, I love it!
Body scrub 200ml – £29
Do any of you guys use Clarins??
