When it comes to skincare, you can’t go far wrong with Clarins and when it comes to a plethora of grime-fighting cleansers and cleansing milks, you can be assured that Clarins will have a product to suit all your skin’s needs. I love the ease and effectiveness of cleansers and have found that some of my all time favourites have been courtesy of Clarins, two of which I am going to rave about today.
First up is Clarins Pure Melt Cleansing Gel. This bad boy is the ultimate at removing the toughest of makeup in a flash! Massaged onto dry skin, this gel creates an oily formula which breaks down and softens stubborn mascara and heavy foundation with ease and emulsifies into a silky milk when rinsed off with warm water. It is such a joy to use and the Marula Oil leaves your skin feeling radiant, soft and thoroughly cleansed, with being too tight or squeaky! The oil-to-milk formula is just perfect at eliminating every last scrap of makeup without stripping the skin of its natural oils and means your skin is left plump and primed for your next skincare step.
The second cleanser in my current skincare line up is the new, Extra-Comfort Anti-Pollution Cleansing Cream from Clarins. The thick, luxurious cream is enriched with extracts of purifying Moringa and nourishing Shea and mango to help restore the skin’s purity and radiance. Instead of simply rubbing or massaging this cleanser into the skin, there is a special method to use this cream to get the optimum results. Warm the cleanser between the palm of your hands before applying it lightly to your skin without pressing down. Then use your hands to create fast suction-like motions by quickly pressing down and removing them on the skin which releases and eliminates makeup, impurities and traces of pollution without irritating the skin or disturbing tissues. The real triumph of this cleanser is its ability to perfectly remove makeup whilst treating the skin to a detoxification, intense nourishment and hydration. Compared to the cleansing gel, the extra-comfort isn’t quite as effective at removing stubborn makeup the first time around but when my skin needs a little extra love and nourishment then this is definitely the tube I reach for!
