(Screengrab of me clowning about, as usual)
Hey girls, remember this? The film from my day with Clarins early this summer is finally out! Since then I've become a H.U.G.E fan of their products. The film was shot when baby James was just a few weeks old (luckily he slept a lot back then) and it was the perfect skin pick-me-up for a new mommy. Even back then I wasn't completely prepared for how absolutely draining motherhood can be. With these products by my side I actually feel that my skin has gotten better with motherhood instead of worse. Now that is a HUGE endorsement. In my experience, their products really work.
My Clarins Picks
1. Beauty Flash Balm. This product is used under your make-up on a clean face. Ever have those days when you feel really tired in the face? I do, almost every day now that I have a baby. This amazing product tightens skin and brightens up your complexion. It is the perfect prep before you apply your make-up and I am completely addicted to it. It can also be used as a face mask, but I haven't done that yet because I'm scared to run out! 2. Clarins Multi-Active Jour Day Cream is the perfect day cream for 20 somethings that want to prevent the first signs of aging. Perfect for me. 3. Multi-Active Nuit Night Cream this little wonder is called "8 hours of sleep in a jar" and it helps protect the skin against the early signs of aging. They may call it "8 hours of sleep in a jar", but I just call it "my lifesaver". 4. Blue Orchid Face Treatment Oil. I don't use a lot of facial masks, but I am completely obsessed with oils. This oil softens and smooths skin, as well as seals in moisture. I use it on those few days that I get some me-time to pamper myself at home. It's like a little spa-facial in a bottle. I will be using this oil more regularly when winter comes because my skin gets really dry. 5. Fix Make-Up. This product keeps your make-up looking fresh all day long. After you apply your make-up just spray it on your face. This well set your make-up and help it last longer, and it smells amazing.
Clarins Double Serum
Out of all of their products, I really fell for their Double Serum. I started using this product just a few weeks after I had baby James when everything about me was looking and feeling tired. After using this product continuously I started to notice a difference in my skins elasticity and tone. By the time I had finished my first bottle my skin looked renewed and dewy. If you are serious about having beautiful skin, I really recommend this product before your regular face cream.
Clarins actually has a special way to apply the product for maximum effect. Did you know that when you pull at your skin when applying creams and make-up it can damage the sensitive areas of your skin and cause wrinkles? Clarins recommends that you gently pat the product into your skin like this:
1. Pump the product into your hand (obviously, he he).
2. Rub your hands together to warm the product.
3. Pat the product softly into your face and neck without pressing.
