Every now and then you may see a short and sweet post pop up on your dashboard,
I promise not to do them too often but sometimes needs must with the back log of products
I have tested and not actually had time to sit down and type up full reviews.
Today I want to share some Clarins mini products that on the whole are fantastic
and something I simply couldn't not voice my opinion on.
So on with the mini reviews...
Clarins Cleansing Milk with Alpine Herbs for Normal/Dry Skin
This is a lovely fresh scented product that is creamy in texture yet feels light on the skin,
it removes make-up and general dirt and grime with no fuss and although aimed at normal/dry skin
it did not leave my skin feeling overwhelmed with moisture.
If you like cleansing milk products this is one to investigate!
Clarins Toning Lotion with Camomile for Normal/Dry Skin
Again this is not aimed at my skin type but is a lovely toning product none the less
it is refreshing and a great as the final step in any cleansing routine even those with oilier skins.
For me the Camomile scent is relaxing making it perfect just before bed.
Clarins Beauty Flash Balm
I have reviewed this in the past and disliked it, I found it too heavy and overly scented
and it did nothing for my skin type but I decided to give it another go and have to say I'm still not
hooked on this product - I do feel it would be great for those with dry or normal skin types
as it is a thick balm like product that does offer a great dose of moisture but for me it's a miss.
Clarins Pure Melt Cleansing Gel
This is amazing, you simply apply it to dry skin rub in and watch your make-up melt away
then rinse your face with water.
I have never felt so clean using a product of this kind in my life and one I will be purchasing in full size.
Clarins Pure and Radiant Mask
When I first applied this my face stung a little but I find that happens with most clay based masks
but it soon died down and was comfortable enough after a minute or so.
Once I rinsed my face the skin was a little pink but again that quickly settled and I do have to admit
that my skin looked rather good - clear and radiant in a sense...what more could you ask for?
Clarins Pore Minimising Serum
I have been looking for a good pore serum - one that is light and tackles the problem of my enlarged pores
and this one seems to fit the bill well, I can't say I have noticed a vast improvement as the bottle is so minute
but it works well with my oily skin and hasn't broken me out like previous serum based products have
so in my mind that warrants a full size purchase. Watch this space!
Clarins Bronzing Duo in Bright Sun
If you are looking for a great powder bronzer that has wonderful colour pay off,
is finely milled and lasts the pace of the day Clarins is where you should be headed.
All of the products above where gifts with purchase but all can be bought in full size versions.
I hope to pick up the Pure Melt Cleansing Gel and the Pore Minimising Serum in the future
so watch out for full reviews in the coming months.
