A Quick Pit Stop at Clarins

Clarins Beauty Purchases

Forgive me, I have F1 on the brain at the moment as it's the Canadian Grand Prix this weekend and that's always a good one. Today I'm pretty convinced I failed my Equity and Trusts exam, it was quite simply horrendous therefore whilst I had an hour to kill before my train home and to save myself wallowing in self-pity I decided to go to Clarins and pick up a product that I have wanted for a while. 

The product that I wanted to pick up was the Instant Light Lip Perfector in the shade Rosewood Shimmer. This was a shade that I thought looked beautiful and having already tried these products before I knew that I really did love them. For a little while now I have being using Candy Shimmer which is pinker in tone with an slight hint of coral to it; to date it is one of my most worn lip products as both the finish and texture is so beautiful and so incredibly easy to wear. Personally I don't think they're completely free of that sticky feeling you can get with a product such as this, however I honestly do think it is more than manageable which is testament to why I've gone out and purchased another. Rosewood Shimmer is more of a my lips but better shade, which when I sit down and think about it are my favourite types to wear as they are much less maintenance and suit my skin tone more. The packaging of this one is a bit odd in comparison to the others, it's the same design of course but the colour I have to say isn't the most flattering, I do think that this would see this particular shade somewhat overlooked in comparison to the others on offer.

Whilst I was at the Clarins counter in Boots I was informed of an offer that they currently have running which allows you to choose three samples from a selection of deluxe samples when you buy two items; one being skincare. Having not tried much from the skincare line I actually ended up going with the advice of the assistant who suggested to me the Clarins Daily Energizer Cleansing Gel. This sounds quite nice and she has reassured me that this will work nicely for my skin type, therefore I'm looking forward to opening this when my current gel cleanser runs out.

Needless to say those two purchases enabled me to qualify for the free gift which saw me able to pick from what I hopefully remember correctly was ten samples. The three I chose were the Clarins Eau Dynamisante Moisturising Body Lotion 100ml, the Clarins Super Restorative Replenishing Comfort Mask 30ml and finally the Clarins Hydra Quench Cream 30ml. These are all new products to me that I haven't tried before so it has been nice to get a few new things to try out over the next few months.

This post was just a quick heads up to let you know about this little offer that Boots have on at their Clarins counters at the moment; I thought it was a pretty good one if truth be known. As far as I can see this is only in store as the online offer is different.

  12. I sure hope so, it was pretty horrendous though, I will not be surprised if I have to re-sit that in August.

  13. They look great don't they, I'm looking forward to trying them out. The race wasn't too bad, it's a shame the Ferraris didn't challenge much.

  16. It is so pretty Maddy, it's extremely natural but that's what I tend to gravitate towards 99% of the time anyway.
