De-CLARINS My Favorites

De-CLARINS My Favorites

I was drawn to the CLARINS counter with their festive balloons and saleslady slathering the latest and greatest anti-aging serum on my face. How could a firming, wrinkle eliminating, skin tone evening, radiance inducing, and pore reducing serum feel like air? With all its accolades and promises, I couldn’t fork out the $85 for the Double Serum, but did purchase two necessities with the current special: Purchase Two Products and Receive Two Large 1 oz. Samples for Free. I snagged the CLARINS UV Plus Day Screen High Protection Tint with SPF 40 in Medium (I rave about the original without tint here) and blush in Sunset Coral for sun-kissed cheeks (that I will review in a future post)!

With my current faves and a few new faves added to the list, I had to declare my love for CLARINS.

1. CLARINS Alcohol Free Toning Lotion with Iris $22 – The sample of this non-greasy, pH balancing toner gets rid of any leftover residue my face wash leaves behind. It tightens pores and normalizes surface oils. My skin feels baby soft!

2. CLARINS Multi-Active Night Youth Recovery Comfort Cream $60 – I chose a sample of this night cream with my purchase. This anti-aging night cream helps to enhance radiance, collagen production, firmness and tone for younger looking skin. Baby, baby, baby!

3. CLARINS UV Plus Day Screen High Protection Tint with SPF 40 in Medium $42 – I wear the non-tint original everyday due to its non-greasy, lightweight, and blendable texture. When the saleslady applied the tint to my skin after my moisturizer, I was in awe of how natural and lightweight it felt and looked. It has a patented anti-pollution complex and fights free radicals and DNA damage with cantaloupe too. SOLD!

4. 2. CLARINS Liquid Bronze Self Tanning $35 – I never leave the house without sunscreen of at least SPF 30 on my face. To achieve some color, I apply this lightweight lotion on moisturized skin and attain the most natural, non-orange bronze on my face and décolleté! Who wants a healthy glow without the premature wrinkles? ME! A skincare staple!!!

So, I said it. I LOVE CLARINS.
