My Clarins skincare loves


Clarins Doux Exfoliant Brightening Toner, £25 
and Clarins Multi-Active Skin Renewal Serum*, £47 available online

Despite chopping and changing my skincare regime more frequently than I change my lipstick colour, there is always a constant in my bounty of serums, lotions and night creams. Clarins skincare has become a firm favourite of mine of the last few years and these are just two of my current loves that have been keeping my skin clear, hydrated and problem-free.

The Doux Exfoliant Brightening Toner is described as a gentle exfoliator thus doing two jobs in one, exfoliating and toning the skin. I do love a multi-tasking product! The Doux Exfoliant is a fresh, fluid lotion that promises to brighten, smooth and soften your skin. The Glycolic and Salicylic acids in this toner work at maintaining a balance between preventing a build-up of dead skin cells and encouraging cell renewal, all without leaving the skin feeling dry or tight. Clarins advise to use this once or twice a week but the rebel in me has been reaching for this product more like 4-5 times a week with no scary consequences. My skin feels ridiculously cleansed and fresh after using this toner and will remain one of my many skincare repurchases.

I’ve said before that serums have only recently become a must-have within my skincare regime and the Multi-Active Skin Renewal Serum from Clarins has become a firm favourite to apply before my day cream or night moisturiser. It just works so well for me by improving my skin texture, making it seem brighter and peachy-soft whilst being light to apply with a lovely fresh scent. The Nopal flower extract in this serum encourages the skin to eliminate its impurities so helps keeps your skin clear and blemish-free and works as a lovely light base in the evening before your night cream. (My preferred time to apply!)

    This is a excellent product for skin care.Before using this product i have used number of creams so that my skin gets more lighter and glowing. But nothing works for me. But now i have leaved all fake products who just show fictitious results.
    I only prefer your shared cream and ponds skin whitening cream. Check below about this cream

    Dermatologists have an advantage when choosing makeup – they know what ingredients are beneficial and which should be avoided. Finding out what makeup they wear helps us to figure out which makeup might be best for our skin as well.
