Lovely, lovely tinted balm. I got it in Rosewood by default, and it turns out to be a universal MLBB nude/pink. Very faint (and pleasant) vanilla scent, nice emollient feel, sheer wash of natural color. It costs too much, of course, but these products are hard to find! I search for these tinted balms in a tube, that have enough color to show up, and are soothing but not sticky, and good quality (not necessarily expensive!). I am sure I am missing some, but where I shop I can find Clinique Superbalm, which I like, but is harder and harder to find in all the shades, probably on its way to being discontinued, and Burts Bees Lipshine, which feels great but has an intense grapefruit scent I find overwhelming. For me, the Clarins Lip Perfector is nicely moisturizing, but I understand these things are very individual. Dior Lipglow, which I had such high hopes for, was almost instantly drying on me. My dermatologist tells me waxy substances are drying, so most products in lipstick form won't work for me. Unfortunately, with lip products, you have to buy to try, so no guarantees, but I personally lucked out with this one. Pretty and comfortable.

I have been using Clarins Double Cleanser Serum for a couple of months now. I like it in that it smells and feels good, but I don't notice a difference in my skin texture or luminosity. $89 US is too much to spend on something that doesn't really do anything for my skin. When I finish this bottle I am going to get the Hydra Essential Bi-Phase Serum which my skin LOVES and is $30 less.

This isn't what I expected and can see why there are so many negative reviews.The first thing that took me by surprise is the small amount of product that gets dispensed with each pump (I have the 400ml format) but you only need a small amount in the end.The scent is a bit strong, kind of an old school white/yellow floral which tends to linger. I don't mind it but can see people loathing it.The way I use the product is the one recommended on the Clarins website; warm the milk into the palms, lightly pressing onto the skin, pat several times and swipe gently. The unusual thing is that as soon as you warm the product up it turns from cream to oil. I prefer using a flannel to remove. The makeup has effectively been dissolved but there's some kind of film remaining on the skin. If I repeat the process the film is still there but my Bioderma micellaire has no makeup residue to remove afterwards.I always follow with a foaming cleanser to feel my skin thoroughly cleansed. So to me this is a makeup removing oil in milk form and would never use it on its own or as a morning cleanser. Does the job pretty well but after all I enjoy The Body Shop cleansing balm more as it's just as effective but smells better, costs less, it's more travel friendly and rinses easier. Won't repurchase.

I seem to always find my way to the Clarins counter, whether at Nordstroms, Sephora or at the corner drug store which carries high end beauty products and every retail store in between incl duty free shops. I truly enjoy Clarins skin care products, for the most part, has served my skincare regimen very well. This cream is of no exception. I love the consistency of this cream, it’s fluffy thick whipped texture, has a lovely silky feel, absorbs quickly into my skin, no greasy feel and is exceptional at leaving my skin well moisturized and plump! No breakouts or skin irritations noted. Makeup application plays well with this cream. It served me well during this harsh cold winter. As for the scent, I really like it’s clean scent, certainly a personal preferrence. Clarins is notorious for having perfumed scents in their products as a whole. I will con’t to purchase this lovely day cream.

This is a review of the new Hydraquench tinted moisturizer with SPF 15. It's a BB cream type of product with very light coverage, which can only be built up a little. The colour I got was 00 Porcelain. It's very pink in the undertone, which at first looks super weird on your palm, but when blended out (with a damp beautyblender) it's the most subtle tint of colour.. Another reviewer said it perfectly: it's my skin, but better. The pink hue neutralizes my dark circles, so I skip the concealer with this one, which is amazing.It feels so comfortable and glides on smoothly, even over my dry patches. It leaves your skin with a dewy and glowing look, with well rested eyes and evenly toned complexion. When set with a powder it lasts all day for me. Even after a sweaty bikeride, I arrived looking flawless! I must say, this is my new staple skinbase product for every day, it looks and feels much more natural, fresh and comfortable than any foundation. My only complaint would be the amount of perfume in this (why Clarins, why?), and the lack of a better colour range.
