House of Fraser have an offer on Clarins and I like all the free gifts they are offering so I'd like to buy 2 products. One needs to be skincare - could anyone recommend something nice for dryish 40+ year old skin that's tired and in need of a bit of tlc.
Also any recomendations for another Clarins product so I can get the free gift? I would like some make up that will make me look healthier, less tired & haggard! I have some vouchers so want to treat myself. Thanks
I was given a weeks sample of the double serum and honestly I hadn't realised how crap my skin was looking, because a week later, my lines on my forehead look reduced, my crease between my eyebrows is plumped up and i look genuinely much better.
I am 39 and facial people always tell me i have dehydrated skin, but I didn't know why as I put a bit of mouisturiser on everyday. Well it seems that wasn't enough!
If I was treating myself to some clarins, I would get some of the blue perfume and some double serum. Or the fake tan gel is good. And I like the oil you put on your skin in the shower.
I love Clarins. I'd get the Blue Orchid oil if your skin is dehydrated as well as dry and some Instant Concealer - this makes me look less tired, even skin toned, and just, 'better'! Get colour matched if you can i usually have one of the palest foundation colours but needed a 2 in the concealer.
Thank you for the ideas. Actiongirl I think I have dehydrated skin too and never feel moisturised even after using moisturiser. How does the double serum work - is it for every day? I was thinking of the Daily Energizer Cream - anyone use that? I have the blue perfume already - love that.
What about a bronzer type thing for healthy colour? I feel so haggard😩
What about the Radiance Plus Golden Glow Booster, sounds like just what you're looking for. You put a couple of drops in your moisturiser for a bit of a tan. I haven't tried it but it's on my list as I've heard lots of good things about it.
I use a lot of Clarins products and agree with the recommendations above for concealer, blue orchid oil, serum and foaming cleanser (I use the shea butter one as the other one dried my skin out). I'm the same age as you and like the multi active night cream and the orange two step cleanser (like a micellar water type of thing) too. The eyeliners are good and stay on well but I don't use much else from their make up range. I'm off to get my freebies on Monday!!
