Over time I have noticed through reading blogs and magazines that there is a huge focus upon the skincare that we apply on our face yet not so much where the rest of our body is concerned. Skincare is something that I'm extremely passionate about, more so than make up would you believe therefore I thought it would be nice to share with you two new products that I'm currently road testing from Clarins.
Clarins are well known for their vast skincare range and beautiful make up products of which in particular the Instant Light Lip Perfectors spring to mind; they're quite possibly some of my favourite products of all time. Whilst their make up products have always left me impressed I was curious to see how I would get on with a couple of products from the body care range.
Firstly the Clarins Renew-Plus Body Serum* is a body moisturiser that can be used all over however it is one that is targeted towards anti-wrinkles therefore it is recommended for age sensitive areas; these consist generally of areas such as the knees, elbows, décolleté and inner thighs. I've being using it all over in order to try it out but I'm probably going to start using it in those areas in particular because at £40 I know I want to be making it last as long as I can. The Renew-Plus Body Serum is light weight, fresh and hydrating on the skin, it also sinks into the skin incredibly quickly which makes it the ideal product for someone such as me who can be more than a little impatient when it comes to hopping out of the shower. The scent of this is really lovely too although it's not over powering in the slightest, it is quite soft and fresh. Ingredients such as Water Lily extract which is rich in Vitamin C helps to eliminate dry flaky skin cells leaving the skin soft and hydrated, Pre-Retinol encourages skin renewal whilst Cashew Nut extract evens skin tone. This product out of the two is my favourite as I can really see and feel a difference in my skin when I use it.
The next product was something that I was if I'm honest a little bit sceptical about because in essence it is a body wash which is the type of product that I'm reluctant to spend much money on. At £20 this is in my opinion much more than I'd be willing to spend however hear me out on this one because if you're looking for something to treat yourself to for a dash of luxury to your shower/bathing routine then this could be just that. The Clarins Tonic Bath and Shower Concentrate* is a light weight cleansing treatment which when activated with warm water releases various aromatic fragrances of Rosemary, Mint and Geranium. I have in the past never really had anything particularly luxurious when it comes to this type of product therefore I find myself having not much to compare it to, however having now used it I'm much more inclined to treat myself in the future. The scent of this product is beautiful and it seems to last for ages after using it, it's extremely gentle and hasn't irritated my skin in the slightest. Overall it's such a nice product to use once you get home from work and want a nice relaxing bath or shower before you get into your pyjamas. For me this is a product that I'll save for pamper evenings instead of using it every time I shower because for me it's that extra bit special.
Have you tried any of the body care products available from Clarins?
