As you we know I have been a huge fan of the Clarins Beauty Flash Balm for years (seen here and here). I have also worked my way through countless bottles of Clarins Double Serum over the years. It hydrates my skin so beautifully. Clarins has just revealed the 8th Generation Double Serum in its beautiful new packaging and I couldn’t wait to get my hands on it. Over the past couple of months, I have completely switched over to Clarins moisturisers too. The Clarins Hydra-Essentiel gel and moisturiser (seen in this post) have revolutionised my daily skin care routine over the past couple months (I’ve been through two of each already). I can now say with firm conviction that I am the happiest I have ever been with my skin thanks to these incredible products. My skin is so beautifully hydrated around the clock and my skincare routine is no longer a chore but a time during the day that I look forward to for a little pampering. To be perfectly honest, now that my skin is so well nourished, clear and radiant. It really is so wonderful to be proud of the skin that I’m in.
With a smooth and hydrated canvas to work with, applying makeup is almost effortless as foundation glides along my skin. I have moved away from a heavy foundation that weighs down on your skin or leaves it feeling heavy on your skin. The team at Clarins introduced me to the Everlasting Foundation+ and, let me just say, I have never fallen in love with a foundation as fast as I have with this one. Firstly, it provides SPF sun protection which is a must in my opinion. It provides incredibly full coverage without the weigh that other full coverage foundations leave you with. It also has such a soft, velvety finish that it truly looks like a perfect, second layer of skin. I have worn it on days where I left for work at 6am and come home at around 8 pm with my foundation still fully in place. It’s actually unbelievable.
Now, let me share a beauty tip straight from the lips of Clarins head makeup artists. Are you ready? The 8th Generation Double Serum’s key ingredient is turmeric. Lately, there has been a lot of buzz around the natural properties of turmeric and nutritionists are encouraging you to add it to your diet. Clarins has found that applying it to your skin also provides remarkable benefits and stimulates hydration and glow. While I absolutely love using my Clarins 8th Generation Double Serum before my moisturiser, Clarins’ own makeup artists recommend adding an additional pump of this serum to you Clarins Everlasting Foundation+ to provide extra glow, greater hydration and even longer lasting wear out of your foundation. With this dynamic duo, I can honestly say that simply with a touch of blush, a little lip balm and a swipe of mascara, I’m so confident that my skin looks flawless, healthy and radiant.
I truly love the overall effect I’ve experienced in using Clarins skin care products so much so that I’ve completely converted to only using these in my skincare routine. With the Everlasting Foundation+ and 8th Generation Double Serum combination I’ve created the perfect canvas for my makeup and if you’d like to see more of the Clarin makeup products I’ve been using (hint – it’s the Clarins Sunkissed Collection), you can find those details in this post. They are beautiful.
