Beauty Flash Balm has been a Clarins 'cult product' & best-seller for over 20 years. I can't see that being the case for much longer as the formula has recently changed for the worse. The pros of...

Really? I simply cannot understand this product. I find this so sticky & overly fragranced, I just can’t tolerate it. I don’t find it moisturising or any good as a primer, it just sits on my skin....

I would buy this over and over again. I read somewhere in the reviews Clarins started to produce this cream in the 80's. They still sell it these days. So it must be a keeper. For me it definitely...

This is one of the still available cult creams of the 1990s. It is actually from the 1980s and due to its pleasant texture (and followers) it is still produced. I find it a lighter cream that...

I had heard so much about the "magic" of this product that I finally had to buy it. I'm glad I only bought a smaller (15ml) tube last summer. I still have not finished it and I probably won't...

I really like this moisturizer. I use it as a mask and sometimes under makeup. It does pull if you rub your skin so I pat on my makeup over it with a beauty sponge. It helps my makeup look radiant...

Great moisturizer. Feels great on the skin, kinda balmy. I like using it over harsh retinoids. The skin in the morning is plump and smooth, not much irritation.

This is very hit or miss for me. I started using it over 20 yrs ago and seem to forget the cons and buy it intermittently. When it works it makes my skin dewy and luminous. Sometimes though my...

It is not a modern formula as it balls up if you put makeup on over it. So unless you do not wear makeup it is useless.

Am I glad I discovered this - I feel like I've unearthed a several decades-long beauty secret. Clarins claims this brightens, tightens, and adds radiance to the skin. The Clarins Beauty Flash...

I’ve had this product for some time and rarely reach for it. I don’t see the difference when I use this as other reviewers have stated. For me it’s just ‘meh’. It evens out texture, makeup applies...

I like lot of Clarins products but this did nothing for me and just sat on top of my skin, not absorbing at all. It sounded so perfect but didn't agree with my skin type.
