Top 5: Clarins Skincare

Many moons ago I worked as a Clarins consultant at a Farmers Department Store in NZ (similar to Myer here in Aus).  As much as I loved my white smock dress and red jacket and shoes (not) I definitely loved the products more.  I was lucky to receive an allocation of products quarterly but even with that I was still buying more because I loved everything so much.  At the time I wasn't a huge fan of the makeup although I hear it has improved ten fold over the last few years.  The skincare though, oh the glorious skincare.  Okay I'm rambling.  I'm a huge fan, you get it!!

Without further ado my top 5 Clarins products.....

Gentle Peeling Smooth Away Cream
An amazing mask/exfoliator.  Apply a thin layer, wait till it's dry and then using a dry flat palm slowly rub the product it off.  It peels away taking your dead skin cells with it and leaves your skin all fresh and glowy afterwards.  So much better than a regular beady exfoliator.

Clarins Tonic Body Polisher & Body Treatment Oil
In the rare times that I get to relax in a bath I love to get these two products out.  The body polisher is absolutely divine, it really feels so luxurious.  It's a mix of sugar, salt and essential oils that exfoliate to leave your skin feeling soft and smooth.  After I'm rinsed off and out of the bath I apply small amounts of the oil all over my body - a little goes a long way.  It's supposed to help smooth and tone cellulite and stretchmarks but I haven't used it regularly enough to attest to that - rather I love it for leaving my skin hydrated for days afterward.  Definitely one to use before bed, the essential oils combined with the warm bath will leave you feeling all kinds of relaxed.

Clarins Double Serum
This is an anti-aging serum but unlike other serums I've tried this is beautiful and lightweight.  Can be used on its own or with a moisturiser on top to boost hydration.  I've noticed a definite smoothness and evening out of my skin since using this.

Clarins Mens Eye Balm
I'm not sure if this is true but one of the older Clarins ladies told me that the Mens products were very similar to the ladies but priced lower so I'll often check out and pick up the Men's products especially when it comes to something like an eye cream.  This is by far my favourite eye cream, its light and soothing and even though I've used it every single night for most of this year the bottles not showing any signs of running out yet.

Do you have a favourite Clarins product?  Or a particular brand you love?

  2. I'm obsessed with Clarins make up and skincare now! I absolutely love the double serum, I always come back to it when I'm not too sure what my skin needs. My other favourite is their anti-pollution cleansing cream :)
