Enjoy Summer with Clarins

Summer is already here 👒👙 and it’s high time to take extra care of our skin. 💁 During weekdays, I dont put any makeup on so it’s just a date with my skin care products from Clarins and my moisturizer from Laura Mercier. 👧


Thanks to Ms. Kristine of Clarins’ Skin Spa for the addition to my skin care products 👝👛 : Clarins Beauty Flash Balm – it hydrates and moisturizes skin; giving us beauty in a flash! 👱 It also preps skin for makeup which is also a good replacement for primer. The scent is good and it’s economical 💱 since a thin application will go a loooong way — giving us that glow and radiance we need this summer 💐🔆

In this photo, I’m using Clarins’ Beauty Flash Balm as a primer together with Nars’ foundation and powder. At first, I was disappointed to see some small “clay-like” particles after I put on the foundation and powder. So I carefully followed the instructions of not rubbing the face and to wait for a few minutes before adding more makeup products. I got scared and waited for the makeup disaster of the day. After a few hours, I was surprised to see that the particles are already gone and my makeup looked a bit different than the usual. I love the semi-matte/glowy effect it gave me. Ohhh! I would definitely re-purchase! Clarins’ Beauty Flash Balm is DEFINITELY a skin care and a makeup product in one.


Another helpful product from Clarins is their UV sun screen protector. 🏊 It’s NOT just our skin’s protector from the sun but also from anything that has high uv rays such as fluorescent lights.💡If we are protected from UV rays, the probability of having skin cancer will be decreased. 👍 Nice!

Try it now in all Clarins’ stores nationwide or call 817-8414 for more details. Have a cool yet steamy summer ladies! 😎



  1. […] Retinol increases photosensitivity; this is the very reason why this is meant to be used during night time. Once the sun goes up, it’s best to protect our skin with SPF or expect the possible consequences. Retinol causes the skin to become extra sensitive to sunlight because it exposes fresh skin.  All skin care treatments that exfoliate heavily have this effect because new skin is very delicate.  It burns easier, and is also prone to discoloring with sun exposure. Using sunblock daily is essential. Retinol products should be used in evening only.  If the user has dry skin, moisturizer is needed to avoid a drier skin. Normal skin types should start using creams to moisturize the dry skin that retinol could bring. Initial irritation is normal as the skin gets used to retinol; but gradual introduction of retinol to the skin will help.  For SPF protection, try Clarins SPF protector. […]
