Cleansers - CLARINS - Water Comfort One Step Cleanser

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Oct/10/2016

My skin: Combination, sensitive, dehydration and break-out/clog-prone. Tends to react to essential oils/fragrance (eczema/redness and burning).

Like other reviewers, I got this as a GWP as I don't really look much into Clarins' skincare. However I did really end up liking this. I prefer to use an oil cleanser (SoftyMo White) but on days when I'm wearing light make-up a …

Smells sooo good. I wish they made a matching body spray. I have a sensitive nose and skin but this doesn't bother me one bit - I can use it all day without gagging or getting a headache. It's really light and absorbs quickly without leaving any sheen or greasy feel.

The only cons are the price (unreasonable IMO for the quality of ingredients which are not unique) and that …

In short this is the best concealer I have tried.. Absolutely worth a try. I've never used anything quite like it. It looks like skin, like healthy beautiful skin, doesn't transfer onto everything, doesn't sink into skin and make you look 100 years old. . plus is so easy to work with.


Now the long version plus some background info to give you an idea about my …

May/09/2016

My skin: Combination/dehydrated, oily t-zone, sometimes dry cheeks/mouth area. Clog-prone, can be irritated by fragrance/sunscreen filters.

Why I chose this: I love the light texture and thought it would be ideal for humid weather, like that it has no SPF or fragrance/essential oils. I use and like a few Clinique products mainly MS Overnight Mask and MS Extended Thirst Relief …

Feb/22/2016

Wowza okay where do I begin? I agree with everyone that says this stuff stinks, the scent literally makes me gag and seems to take forever to go away. It took me weeks to hunt down my shade because Target was always a mess whenever I went to look. Disappointing.

I have this in #05 Bamboo (great match, I am golden olive, NC40 in MAC, Becca in Bamboo, MUFE HD in #153) and it has a nice …

Dec/26/2014

I received several samples of this, and took it with me on a recent trip without checking the ingredients first (foolish of me, yes. . but I was in a hurry). It stings like crazy and makes my eyes super puffy, then they were watery and teared up for a few hours. My eyes remained puffy for three days after just one application. It has a cooling, herbal scent and feel upon application that just …Read more

Dec/26/2014

I bought the shade "03- Strawberry Kissed" which Sephora describes as a "matte bright pinky red". The description is right on and the colour is amazing, richly pigmented and bold. I have warm, yellow and olive skin (NC35ish right now) and it looks great.

I don't normally wear lipstick - I prefer lip tints like TonyMoly, TheSaem or anything that has a bright yet …

Love. I have black brows/warm olive and golden yellow skin (about NC35-40) and this looks so natural! It is a perfect ashy cool-toned brown. I work a crazy job (healthcare), running around all day, plus work long hours with absolutely no time to touch-up, and this makes my life so much easier. I apply a tiny amount to fill in sparse patches (I have straight medium-thick brows but the ends are a …Read more
