Hi everyone! So today is my 2nd #blogiversary and I’m back to my first love — writing. Most of you already know that I’m a makeup and beauty junkie.. always on the lookout for anything new and that is why you always see me blogging and trying new products.
Since it’s my 2nd anniversary.. I wanna write something about the same brand I reviewed when I first started blogging – Clarins. Here are some blog posts I made about the brand before :
I’m happy that after treating my huge acne with Banish, I am now on the 2nd stage of skin care – maintenance.
Clarins Claims : Skincare boosters are a new innovation from Clarins. The real-time answer to your occasional beauty needs linked to your lifestyle & environment. The Detox Booster is a high-concentrate formula specifically designed to target damaged skin. If your skin is suffering from the effects of a smokey environment, many late nights or even from the effects of pollution, the Detox Booster could be the right one for you. The Detox Booster is designed to reverse these effects ultimately achieving revived radiance and detoxified plumped skin. The Detox Booster has a unique application process that is both quick and easy. Simply add a couple of drops into your Clarins favourite Face Cream, Mask or Foundation. Use for a day, a week or a month depending on your skin’s needs. Boosters come in 3 different types : Energy, Repair and Detox.
HOW TO APPLY
In the palm of your cleansed hand, blend 3 to 5 drops of your Booster with your usual Clarins face cream or face mask. Blend until smooth before applying. Do not use alone. With just a few drops, your skin receives a customized beauty boost.
My Review : I tried using it and I love how the boosters strengthened and brightened my skin the next day. Unfortunately, I had small pimples after use of Repair & Detox. 😣
Clarins Claims : Specially formulated to fit the eye morphology of Asian women.
• Instantly lifts the eyelids with longlasting results thanks to the properties of organic oat polyoses and kaki extract.
• Reduces eyelid puffiness thanks to the properties of guarana and zerumbet ginger extracts.
Brighter eye contours
Dark circles are reduced and eyes appear brighter thanks to the combined action of lady’s mantle extract and escin from horse chestnut.
Your lashes are fortified and beautifully enhanced thanks to the properties of panthenol.
My Review :
1. Puffy eyes has been my issue ever since and nothing helped me on this issue but this serum and Banish Pore Eraser. I keep the serum in the fridge then gently put this on my under-eyes then do the eye-lifting serum massage that you can watch here.
Reduce puffiness and dark circles by stimulating microcirculation.
A. Warm the product between fingertips.
B. Gently press into skin. Begin at inside corner and work outwards. Hold each pressure point for 3 seconds.
2. Believe me or not, eyelashes became thicker, stronger and longer after 1 month of use.
3. It doesn’t sting nor is it itchy or feels thick on skin. I just love everything about it.
Clarins Claims : The instant solution to morning puffiness and swelling caused by sleep, heat and hormonal changes. Pioneers of skin-refining plant science, Clarins Laboratories were inspired by women.
Luxurious cream-mousse formula is rich in plant extracts:
• Visibly, intensely and instantly alleviates puffiness in the face.
• Brightens skin tone, restoring true radiance.
My Review : It feels so relaxing after use. I can’t explain how less puffy my face looks like after washing it. I am 180 lbs, but my face looks like this after religiously using the V-Wrap.
It also has a video of how to do the massage, watch here :
1. Warm product between fingertips
2. Put product on the lower part of the face (half of nose) until upper neck
3. Get a facial tissue and after 9 minutes, tilt head 2-3x to the left then another set on the right.
4. Wash with water.
* I suggest you take photos of before/after to really see difference.
Clarins Claims : Powered by 20 pure plant extracts and potent, high-tech molecules—Double Serum’s innovative, dual chamber system combines two age-defying formulas into one groundbreaking serum that reactivates skin’s vital functions. The result: firmer skin, visibly reduced wrinkles, a more even skin tone and less visible pores in just 4 weeks.
My Review : This is my first ever skin care and I got addicted to it because of its smell, less greasy-feel and good effects on my skin. See the difference in 2 weeks. Do not put near the eye area.
How to Use : Mix and warm a few drops between palms. Gently press onto clean face and neck, morning and/or evening, before applying your regular treatment cream.
My Review : This isn’t your ordinary BB cream because it contains high spf plus anti-pollution. It looks a bit different than other BB cream because it’s thicker and harder to blend. It didn’t help in correcting my color nor did it give a good coverage – but it did give me a good sun and pollution protection.
Clarins Claims : Skin-balancing formula toner that tightens pores, while helping to normalize surface oils. Preps skin for the Clarins treatments to follow.
My Review : I love the clean-feeling it gives after I wash my face and put this toner. It brings back the ph to my skin and I fell in love with the non-sticky feel it gives but with the same benefit like the other toners. Best of all, they have different toner options for different skin types. 😉
Clarins Claims :
• This gel-like non-sticky oil with sheer color nourishes and enhances lips with high shine
• Soothes the senses with a delicate scent
• Luxurious applicator assures comfort, pleasure and ease of use
My Review : I love the scent it has. They claim it’s non-sticky but it is too sticky for me especially if compared to Dior Lip Glow. The effect is good. It works best as a lip moisturizer compared to a sticky lip gloss.
If you ask me why do I like Clarins? Simple, they make skin care products that target the needs of Asians’ skin. 2nd, they have promos and discounts on your birth month. Lastly, they have a wide variety of products – skin care, makeup & body care. Next on my blog is body care products by Clarins. Thanks Cheska & Ms Mildred of Rustan’s Makati for always taking care of me. 😚
