'A-Z' C is for Clarins

Skincare is important because with as much money you spend buying all the MAC collections, limited edition lipsticks and essentially, the entirety of Boots, having good skin and a beautiful base is the key to achieving a GFD- Good Face Day, and my weapon of choice? Clarins! 

I can have dry skin and when I was a teenager it could be quite sensitive, so I always opted for Simple Replenishing Rich Moisturiser and even now, I tend to have a bottle of it laying around as it does what it says, it doesn't irritate my skin and it is a rich formula. However, around 2 years ago, my older sister introuduced me to Clarins and I haven't looked back. I love their HydraQuench Cream and rave on about it to anyone that will listen. It is for Normal to Dry skin and it does have a slight perfumed scent but it doesn't irritate my skin, my skin actually loves it. 

Clarins HydraQuench Intensive Serum is a skincare dream, I have had a few bottles of the stuff and it is a firm favourite, it is unbelievably hydrating and you feel it straight away on your skin

The final member of the HydraQuench family is the Cream-Mask for Dehydrated skin, which you are meant to leave on your skin for 10 minutes. I find I leave this on a little longer and I may have even slept in it once, I am all for a little extra hydration, and it didn't affect my skin badly at all. 

I tried my Sister's Lotus Oil by Clarins, which is actually for Combination/ Oily skin and I just enjoyed using an oil on my face and I had before used Bio-Oil as I liked how rich an oil is for my skin, so I went and bought the right facial oil for me, the Santal Face Treatment Oil which is designed for Dry skin. I love this product and I have even mixed a little with the HydraQuench cream before and it seemed to work quite well. 

My last favourite from Clarins is their Gentle Peeling cream, which works as an exfoliant. You spread a thin layer over your face, be sure to work quicky, this stuff sets almost instantly. Then let it sit on your skin for a mintute or two then use warm water to wipe it away, I like to use a cleanser after to get rid of any bits that may be lingering. 

I really do reccomend anything from the Clarins range, they have something for everyone.  I like their makeup too, in particular their bronzer. 

So to recap, girl loves Clarins. Girl may have also made her boyfriend quite the fan of their Men's range. Shh!
