Cheapest website for Clarins - any advice?

Have been trying lots of products lately as skin is changing (and haven't really been looking after it for years).

I think the Clarins products have been best - escentual and gorgeousshop are the cheapest I can find so far, but does anyone know of others that are better?

Thank you smile!

Lurking with interest....

I think it's just us here!

I can tell you what I've found so far though . . .

Orchid oil is £30 from Clarins (or John Lewis etc), £23.95 at gorgeousshop

Day cream for dry skin, wrinkle reducing, is £50 from Clarins, £38.40 at gorgeous and escentuals

Dry skin gentle cleanser is £18 from Clarins, £14.40 at escentuals

I'd just like them even cheaper if possible grin

Yes I haven't found any cheaper.
Am looking to invest in the double serum & eye cream shortly after a good trial with some samples!

They gave me a bag with about 15 samples in Boots last week - and they didn't make me go through a 30 minute interview for it!

They only have me three & I had to beg for them! What's your secret?

Maybe it's because I'm so haggard, they think I'm a captive audience wink.

I have used escentuals and salon skincare

I don't buy online, but from one place only now in one of the department stores (im not in uk so naming wont help wink. ) I have built up quite a nice relationship with the Clarins lady there, and as she knows me as a loyal customer now, every time I go in there, she gives me freebies which are to way more value that a bit of saving here and there would be I reckon. Last time I received a full size cottonseed face wash, before I received a full size neck cream etc. I also got a full size exfoliating toner too. This is along with those little samples, she just opens the drawer and tells me to help myself..... So yes I could save a little bit on each product by shopping around, but for me I actually receive much more of their products by being loyal to one place. Also if there is something new coming out or special offers coming up, she will text me in advance as sometimes they only receive a few of each items (like the cleanser / toner packs etc). Apparantly they have a client list as well - each time you buy a product they add you in and they offer out spa days and things like that. I haven't been invited on one of those yet, so whether they do exist or not I am not sure.....

Escentual sometimes have good special offers, sign up to their emails if you want details.
