Moisturizers -Clarins -Hydra-Essentiel Cooling Gel Normal to Combination Skin

If you have dry skin and are looking for something moisturizing, this isn't for you. Doesn't mean it's a bad product, it just isn't tailored to your particular needs and you're throwing your money away. This also has quite a strong (think fresh/clean) fragrance, so if you're sensitive to fragrance, I'd sample it first. I buy all my products fragrance free as I have had very bad experiences with fragranced products in the past, but I seem to be alright with this one.
I recently tried a sample of this in Business Class in Air France on a 7 hour flight. I usually avoid trying samples in planes and was not planning on trying this out, but my combo/oily skin was drying up like a prune in that flight, so I thought "what the hell".
This gel cream is great. I live in a hot/humid country (35°c, 90% humidity) all year so using the cream I'd usually use in Europe isn't an option. This is a GREAT summer gel cream if you have oily/combo skin and aren't highly sensitive to fragrance. After I tried this out on the plane, I cannot see myself ever taking another flight without it. I travel A LOT for my job and am often in long-haul flights, and this little jar really soothes my skin. My only gripe against this is that it's in a jar which is very unhygienic. I'd be over the moon if this was in an airtight container.
I have also tried the lip balm version, but wouldn't recommend it to be honest, it's nothing special for the price and it's very sticky.



Masks -Clarins -Super Restorative Replenishing Comfort Mask

It’s a mask, I however use it as a facial cream because I personally find it not so thick. In fact, after 10 minutes it has almost completely been absorbed into my skin since I have kinda dry face. And the fact it’s in a tube makes it very easy to use, more hygienic, travel-friendly too.

People say it is overfragranced, I got sensitive skin and I haven’t experienced any side effects or breakouts.

Overall, I think it does what it claims to do since usually by half way through the day my face gets tight and uncomfortable, and very heavy creams and balms don’t absorb well into my skin. This however took this away from me. So from my experience I’d recommend it :)


Toners -Clarins -Toning Lotion with Iris (Alcohol-free)

I had high expectation on this toner. I had it in sample size using it very very exporadically and it seamed to be good for leaving my skin toned after cleansing.

I purchased in regular size and liked the fact that it has natural ingredients and it's oil free.

First, I used it morning and night after cleansing. It did made my skin feel confortable at first and absorbed well. But I realised my skin felt a bit sticky afterwards and maybe even gettin oily quicker than usual, which made me think that this may be a bit too drying and my skin felt the necessity of creating oil.

So I continued to use it only at night. I have to say that this is great if you have large and dirty pores, this toner helps cleaning those areas and making your skin refreshed and tight.

BUT!!!! I have come to use it ONLY in my T zone, my cheeks are VERY sensitive and I noticed this toner made my cheeks sting and make my the small bumps on my cheeks red and bigger :(

So as a conclusion, this is very good for purifying and toning oily or even combination skin, but not if your skin is very sensitive. If your skin IS sensitive but still oily and with large pores/pimples I recomend to use it only on yout T Zone and only once a day (you really can feel this cleans your pores and purifies your pimples, but it also stings sensitive areas or open pimples which could be bad but also means its healing imperfections but in a harsh way).

As I only us it on my T-zone, once it is absorved (which it does quicky), I apply Shiseido's Pureness Balancing Lotion on all of my face, which is a Lotion I really recommend for sensitive skin, beacuse this is great stuff for calming your skin and taking away all the redness and at the same time hydrating s bit.

Finally, some people comment the smell of Clarin's Iris Toner is too strong. I have to admit that the smell IS very present but I wouldn't describe it as strong, it's more like a fresh-sweet combination that fades quickly. I'm not throuwn back by the smell, it's "relaxing" and "clean", but a bit less fragance would make it less harsh on skin.


Primer/ Corrector -Clarins -Instant Light Complexion Illuminating Base

I have this in 01 Rose (Palest) and it’s a gorgeous illuminating cream that gives a subtle non-glittery sheen to your skin. Looks fantastic with any foundation or even just on its own! Smells divine, lovely texture but to be honest it’s not great for longevity or oil control by the end of the day so would not recommend for those with oily skin. It comes in 3 shades - Rose, Peach & Gold. One tube seems to last many months and has a handy pump dispenser. Great for travel. Not the best primer out yet there but lovely for those who want a natural glowy look.

Cleansers -Clarins -One-Step Gentle Exfoliating Cleanser

I love the way this smells. My skin feels great afterwards. I got a small tube 1.7 oz half price at Ulta and it was still expensive. So I would buy it again only if I found it discounted again. When I use it, I don't get my face too wet because then the cleanser will just disappear. My face does feel tight afterwards but it's a good tight. And very smooth.
