Clarins have always been a brand which has intrigued me, I however naively was under the misconception that it was firmly a beauty and makeup brand for the more mature woman; therefore not for me. Oh how wrong I was! I spent so many years missing out!
I was converted to the wonders of Clarins when I first tried their infamous Beauty Flash Balm – for my full review check out my It’s All About The Primers post. The Beauty Flash Balm is one of my staples in my make-up bag, I absolutely love it.
I had been watching a lot of beauty vloggers wax lyrical about the newly relaunched Joli Rouge Lipstick by Clarins and I got sucked into the hype and found myself adding a few other items into my online basket!
The above goodies made their way into my basket. My skin has been freaking out recently so I wanted to try a new indulgent face scrub. I’ve used this a few times and absolutely love it, I will be posting a full review when I’ve given it a proper test. But so far so sooo good!
I opted for the Rosewood shade in the Joli Rouge Lipstick. I have to admit I fell for the name and the link to Pretty Little Liars… The colour, however is a beautiful everyday pinky coral with hints of lilac which I really like. It’s a beautiful glossy and super hydrating formula with a lovely fruity scent. It applies and feels like a balm on the lips! Love it!
The last product I just had to try is one of the Instant Light Natural Lip Perfector in the shade Rosewood Shimmer. Again, I was sucked it by the rosewood name! This is a lovely nude colour which is super hydrating. Love it. This is my first experience of the lip creams, I have however tried the balm form (check out my review here).
When I shopped at the Clarins online store I managed to pick up some great offers. Not only did my three purchases arrive in my package but also the above 7 samples! I was so surprised. Some of them I could choose which was a lovely offer.
Included in my samples are 15ml of the Beauty Flash Balm, 15ml of the Gentle Refiner, 2 x 2ml sample of facial oils, 5ml sample of a face mask, 5ml sample of an Instant Light Lip Perfector and a sample size of a peach blush! Bargain! I am super impressed with the quality and this great offer.
Have you tried any of these products? What do you think of Clarins products? I love reading and replying to your comments.
