Clarins Haul
Hey Lovelies,
So payday came on Friday and it wasn't a day too soon. Even though I am going to try not to spend too much money this month, I did definitely need some new skincare. So far my skin type has always been combination. I had an oily T-zone but my skin was normal pretty much everywhere else. Lately however my skin has become very dehydrated. It also feels very tight at times, and that's something I'm not used to. I don't know if it's because I'm getting older, or the products that I have been using,  but something is drying out my skin, so I really needed to invest in some skincare for dry and dehydrated skin. After some research I decided to stick with a skincare brand that has aways worked really well for me, and that is Clarins. Here's are the things I picked up from my local Clarins counter. I am really hoping these products will help sort out my dehydrated skin!
Clarins Cleansing Milk with Alpine Herbs, Normal or Dry Skin
In the mornings I have been relying on Micellar waters to cleanse my skin, which probably isn't very good for my skin, and I wouldn't be surprised if that's what's contributed to my skin becoming so dehydrated. I decided to pick up the Clarins Cleansing Milk for normal to dry skin. This cleanser has a rich and creamy consistency. It feels lovely and cooling when I apply it to my face. After gently patting it into my skin, I soak a cotton pad in toning lotion and use it to gently wipe the cleansing milk off. My skin feels lovely and smooth after cleansing now, and I certainly won't be using Micellar solutions as part of my morning skincare routine anymore. 
The next product I picked up is the Clarins HydraQuench Intensive Serum, which has been formulated to restore your skin's natural hydration mechanisms. It comes in a lovely bottle which you shake up before using. I am using this serum in the morning after cleansing but before my moisturiser. It feels very lightweight, absorbs quickly into my skin and isn't greasy at all. I've only been using this product for a few days but so far I really like it, and I am hoping it will help improve the way my dehydrated skin looks and feels in the long term.   Clarins Blue Orchid Face Treatment Oil for Dehydrated Skin
I had a sample of the Clarins Blue Orchid Face Treatment Oil, and after using the product for about a week I decided to purchase the full size. This oil is made up out of 100% pure plant extracts which include rosewood and blue orchid (as the name suggests). It has been formulated to tone and restore radiance to dehydrated skin, which is exactly what I need!

I'll be honest I was never keen on the idea of using an oil on my face, as I was worried it would be too greasy, but the Clarins Blue Orchid Oil really surprised me. You can either use it on its own as an intensive overnight treatment, or mix it in with your regular nighttime moisturiser. As my skin is very dehydrated, I am going to use the Clarins Blue Orchid Face Treatment Oil by itself every evening for about a month. Hopefully after this time, my skin will have improved and I will be able to use it together with my moisturiser. 
Well, that's it for my little Clarins haul. I hope you've enjoyed this post! What are your favourite Clarins products?
