Clarins, getting rid of everything!

16 Mar 2013

Clarins is a brand who never fails to impress me with their products and over the past month or two I have been using two of their products in my nightly skincare routine which have really won me over.

I've been using the Clarins Water Comfort One-Step Cleanser as a pre-cleanse when taking off my makeup at night. In one simple step, this soothing cleanser creatres the sensation of water fresh cleaning - without the water! With moringa seed extract (it smells lovely like the Emma Hardie Moringa Cleansing Balm) which gently rinses away impurities and light makeup, with a fresh, non-foaming action. The peach's softening and soothing properties leaves your skin smooth, supple and velvety soft. This is the first step in my nighttime skincare routine and definitely helps my skin along in becoming makeup free and letting it relax and breath! You can find it on the Clarins website here and a 200ml bottle costs £19.50.

An absolute star of a product and without a doubt the best eye makeup remover I have ever used, is the Clarins Instant Eye Makeup Remover. A pi-phase lotion which instantly removes all traces of eye makeup, including long-wearing and waterproof makeup, this product is an absolute beauty! You know in adverts you see models advertising products where a touch of product on a cotton pad swipes away makeup in one go? This is one of those products. Applied to a cotton wool pad, I hold this against my each eye for around 30 seconds. When I gently wipe away, 99% of my eye makeup is gone! It's an incredible product and I can't believe how utterly beautiful it is at doing exactly what it says it will! You can find it on the Clarins website here and a 125ml bottle costs £17.
