Clarins Skincare Product Haul + Full review

 

Hey guys ,

Last month, I decided to try out a new toner as I’d finished the Pixi Toner – previously reviewed here….

I went to Beauty Bar by Essenza located at Palms Mall in Lekki (nice store by the way) to see what I could lay my hands on.    The consultant recommended I try the Clarins range which wasn’t a hard sell as I am familiar with product especially as  mom uses it.

I considered using Clarins a while ago but chilled because of the exchange rate. Nonetheless, I did some research and realised the Key/Active ingredient they use is derived from plants; I’m talking plant extracts from Kiwi fruit, Baobab, Camomile, Aloe Vera, oats and lots more so I was happy to spend some coins.

I bought all the products on 10th March and today is 13 April (My moms birthday by the way so please wish her a Happy Birthday) so I’ve used them for a little over a month. Most of the products are about a quarter down and I have used them religiously. I have to say I am mightily impressed by the results which range from reduced lines under the eyes to clearer skin.

Note that even though I love skincare products, there are other factors that contribute  to having a great skin like getting enough sleep, drinking water, exercising (yes exercising) amongst others and I practice all of them.

My skin type is “combination” so I also know what to avoid. For example, a lot of beauty enthusiasts have recommended coconut oil on their skin, which seems to be good and some use it to take off their makeup. Having combination skin means I can never use Coconut oil on my face else you could fry trays of puffpuff from the oil on my face….LITERALLY!! It’s best to find out what works best for you. I do this by trying which I’m certainly not afraid of.

So, here’s my take on each product and how I feel about them. Don’t forget, I use Makari 24k gold serum (aka Kaylahs skin booster) and body lotion once or twice a week. It works for me and so it’s not going anywhere.

PS: During my research , I found out that application is very important when using skin care products, on the Clarins website , there are videos showing you how to apply the products to get the best results . That was indeed a eye opener for me .

The Clarins double serum !!! If you just hit 30 or over 30, this product is for you, no business if you are under 30 to be honest , It has over 20 plants extracts. I use it after washing and toning your skin, it feels velvety smooth on application , and it instantly brightens your skin (not bleach o) you have to mix at the back of your palm and press on to your face. I noticed anytime i use this product , when its time to apply my makeup in the morning, its sits in perfectly.

I use this after the double serum, applying over my face and neck. It balances out my skin tone.

Goes right around my eye. You are meant to dab/press unto clean skin. I still have lines when I smile but I have not given up on eye creams in general. I saw a little reduction but i still have to finish this tube to see final results.image5

Honestly, I’m seriously managing this product, it  went down pretty fast, gives the skin a nice healthy glow.
