Decided to splash out on a moisturiser as just turned 40, is Clarins the best?
I've always bought No7 skincare products and considered this to be at the high end of the market for my financial circumstances. But having accrued a bit of Birthday money recently and finding out that most of my 40-something pals use Clarins, Lancome or the like and all look fab, have decided to bite the bullet and go to the "posh" beauty counters for some retail therapy. Help! They always seem a tad intimidating! The general consensus seems to be that Clarins' day cream is the best. My skin is combination (I think!)
reading the papers last week there was an interesting article where Which reviewed a lot of face care ranges and Simple came out on top .. even beating clarins.. I have used the whole spectrum of moisturisers as have very dry skin .. from la mer to aldi including clarins and have to say that I have the same results with Simple as I did with all of the others..
watching with interest! ive just bought 'simple' products for my 12 year old DD....id just bought boots no 7 'protect and perfect' day cream for myself and was thinking about getting that serum thingy...i might just start nicking DD's instead! (she regularly pinches my touche elclat so i think im allowed!)
