Clarins to the rescue

Friday, 22 June 2012

This product brings back the fondest memories! It was during high school and time for our first-ever ball that was known as the Chanel Ball. Being all of 16 years old we had no clue what to do, and turned to our English teacher for advice, she had lived in Paris for many years and came with a wealth of knowledge in skincare.
She said that she would let us in on her little secret which was Clarins’s Beauty Flash Balm. She told us how this miracle product would make our skin glow, make our make up last forever and make us look ‘simply irresistible’! So, as you can imagine, we all scurried out on our boarding school day off and got a sample of this miraculous balm (being school girls we were all a bit strapped for cash). I have been a big fan ever since...


Clarins describe their best-seller as ‘the ultimate pick-me-up for tired, stressed skin. It instantly moisturizes, brightens and tightens facial contours so skin looks rested and relaxed. Preps skin for perfect make-up application and hours of luminous wear.’ What more could you ask for?

I haven’t been using this product for a few years now as (because of this blog) I am often caught up trying new products and find no time to use the one’s I truly love and know. This is definitely one of them, so very happy to have it as a staple back in my routine, and won’t be letting go of it this time!
