Hello my lovely readers, how are you today? I’m actually not in the best mood, because I had planned to do lots of fun posts this weekend, but I didn’t have time yesterday, and today the lighting outside is terrible so I can’t get my photos to look nice. I decided to do a little review on these babies, because I did promised to do it, and also I had the photos on my laptop so I didn’t have to take them now. This is a trial kit from Clarins, one of my favorite skincare brands. It comes with a gel cleanser (finished), toner and moisturizer (also finished). Overall I really enjoyed this kit. I liked all the products a lot, they were nice on the skin, and suited my skin type (combination to dry). I didn’t use them all up at the same time, so I can’t tell you how long they would last if used on a daily basis, but the amount of product is more than enough to have a perception of how you like it. My favorite thing about this range would have to be the amazing scent. It’s really fresh, I believe it’s because of the moringa extract in it. However, it isn’t too strong or irritating on the skin. Let’s take a closer look!
This first product is the cleansing gel, my personal favorite. It has moringa extract, like I mentioned, and it cleans my skin really well. It is really gentle and the lather is very smooth. It doesn’t do much for breakouts, but if you use it everyday it will clean your skin and prevent them. I would still recommend having some kind of spot treatment with you, just in case! Overall, I think this is a beautiful smelling cleanser that will gently wake you up in the morning, while doing great things for your skin. I have re-purchase this already!
This is the day cream from the range. I didn’t find it to be that moisturizing for the colder months, but it’s a great summer option. It leaves your skin soft but not greasy at all, with a healthy glow. The consistency is perfect, not too thick or too thin, and has refreshing properties. I really liked it, but I don’t think I will be buying this again any time soon.
Finally, there is a wake up boosting toner. It’s really refreshing, and smells amazing as well. The redcurrant, green coffee and white tea extracts in it will give you a rejuvenated, awake look. I would say this is more of a boosting toner than a clarifying one, so I wouldn’t use this on very oily skin with a lot of buildup, maybe on drier skins it will work better, since it’s not as abrasive. Great to use in the morning!
♥♥♥ So that will be it for today. Thanks for reading! x lulu ♥♥♥
