My 2013 Clarins Favourites

11 comments
Hey Lovelies,
I am having an incredibly hard time narrowing down my favourites for 2013. There are simply too many products I have loved this year. Some of the stand out brands for me throughout the year have been Clarins, Origins and Benefit Cosmetics. Rather than putting all products into one massive blog post, I have decided to split my favourites into brands. My first post was all about my Benefit Cosmetics favourites which you can read by clicking here. Today I'm going to be sharing with you the Clarins products I have been loving in 2013. I've been a huge fan of Clarins products since my mid 20s, so you could say I am pretty familiar with the brand. Clarins is who I credit when people ask me what my secret is for looking so young. I turned 33 this month, but people always assume I'm about 25 which is obviously a massive ego boost for me haha.
Clarins Multi Active Day Cream
Clarins Multi Active Day Cream, 50ml, RRP £40.00 (Link)
I love this day cream and have been using it for many years. It's available in different formulas depending on your skin type. Unlike many day creams I have tried this year, the Clarins Multi Active Day Cream is one of the few moisturisers I have in my collection which contain an SPF. The texture of the Clarins Multi Active Day Cream is very rich and thick, however the product isn't greasy at all and absorbs beautifully into my skin when I apply it. Clarins claim that this cream will not only prevent, but also correct the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Judging by my complexion and the fact that I have used this product religiously over the past 5 years or so, their claim is definitely true and if you are in your late 20s or early 30s, I cannot recommend this product enough. 
Clarins Multi Active Night Youth Recovery Cream
Clarins Multi Active Night Cream, 50ml RRP £43.00 (Link)
This is by far the best ever night cream I have used. It is formulated to restore the elasticity and radiance of your skin while you sleep. It's basically the night version of the Clarins Multi Active Day Cream. Unlike the Day Cream, the Clarins Multi Active Night Cream does not contain an SPF. It is a rich moisturiser which absorbs really well into my skin. I apply this product at bed time and when I wake up in the morning my skin feels smooth and refreshed. I know Clarins skincare is expensive but as it delivers results I am more than happy to spend my money on their products. After all, premium beauty skincare is still cheaper than a face lift haha and one of these jars lasts me a good 6 months or so.
Clarins Gentle Foaming Cleanser 
Clarins Gentle Foaming Cleanser, 100ml, RRP £18.00 (Link)
I have tried a lot of lovely facial cleansers this year, but my favourite has to be the Clarins Gentle Foaming Cleanser. This facial wash is water based and has a mousse like texture which leaves my skin feeling incredibly soft when I rinse it off. It is formulated for Normal to Combination skin. The texture of this product is very thick, and I only need about a pea sized amount to work up a rich lather. I love how this cleanser removes dirt as well as make up really well. It even dissolves Benefit's They're Real mascara off my lashes which is well know for being a bit of a nightmare to get off!   
Clarins Beauty Flash Balm
Clarins Beauty Balm Flash, 50ml, RRP £29.00 (Link)
This is one of Clarins best known and most iconic products and I can easily see why. Clarins Beauty Balm Flash contains olive and witch hazel extracts. These ingredients are designed to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. I apply this product in the morning after my moisturiser but before my primer and I really feel that it brightens and tightens my complexion. Since introducing the Clarins Beauty Balm Flash to my skincare and make up routine, I have had quite a few compliments on how well I look!
Well that's it for my favourite Clarins products of 2013. Which Clarins products have you been loving in 2013?

  1. I've been loving the Clarins Exfoliating Toner. It is by far one of the best chemical exfoliants I have tried this year and as gentle as ever. Another fave in 2013 was the Essential Eye pallete, a much more sophisticated version of the Naked Palette I'd say! xo

  6. These are great Clarins favorites. :) One of my all times fav hand creams is by Claris. The hand and nail treatment. I can only recommend it to everyone. A great "before going to bed" cream.
    I have also tried the foaming cream last year and it was really good & gentle.
    Are there any other Clarins products that are on your to-buy list?
