Clarins Voucher

(10 Posts)

£50 voucher from a relative for yet another bloody my birthday grin. I'm a bit surprised as I usually buy a supermarket moisturiser. But, it's a lovely gift and I do look rather haggard tired these days grin What should I get? I am quite happy with my cheapo moisturiser, should I get make up? I don't wear it that much to be honest. I have what, if I recall, women's mags call T-zone greasiness but driness too. There isn't much point me going for some three product nightly regime because I just won't do it blush. Something to reduce the haggardly greyness and general worn-outness would be nice smile

Come nice S&B ladies, what should I get?smile

Go for the facial in the clarins spa- usually one in John Lewis/ fenwicks etc- is totally totally fab.

If you can spend it online- and it might work in stores too- they do a cleanser and toner for under £20 for the two in a bag.

Otherwise, I'd suggest a nice foundation, blusher and maybe a face mask?

I'd go and ask for some samples first, and see if they will do your makeup for free - say you have a voucher and want to spend it wisely. I hear the sun cream and skin care is very good. Didn't go much on the beauty flash balm but lots like it.

Their new vital lumiere (sp?) cream is v v good......brightens your skin and gives it a lovely glow. its new, so they should have some samples for you to try. Also the eau dynamisante exfoliating shower stuff is good too....but only if you like the scent.

Oh you lucky person, you! I love BFB and one tube lasts for ages. I also really like the scent in the red bottle. They do some nice face washes too.

I'd deffo suggest you see them for a consultation as they are usually generous with free sample and TBH your £50 won't go far.

Won't go far? shock How do people afford this stuff? Something to make me look less ragged would be good. Ta

Deffo go in and get a makeover; they are v good if you tell them your needs. They also do some v good value sets at certain times - eg last year for 40 pounds I got a set that had a full size BFB, a full size handcream (which is excellent), a face moisturiser and various other bits and bobs.

If you want to look less haggard, you need BFB!

If going for product make sure it is gift with purchase time. Clarins are usually very generous.

either that or a facial.
