Clarins Mother's Day

Created by

If there’s one thing we mothers know, it’s that our skincare can fall by the wayside once children come into our lives. Often unintentionally, we no longer find time for that seven step skincare routine we once cherished and instead, have swapped that time for pack-lunch prep, bath times and the ability to binge-watch all episodes of The Crown in peace once the DC are in bed. 

So, to make life easier - and we’re all for anything that makes life easier - when it comes to your skincare, finding a brand that offers products that can do everything you need them to (bar turning back time) might feel like somewhat of an impossible mission. 

Enter: Clarins. 

The popular skincare brand is a firm favourite among our community, and unsurprisingly so. With Clarins, skincare isn’t just about beauty - it’s about self-care, confidence, and providing results you can actually rely on. The brand’s commitment to quality, innovation and visible results means that their products have earned a special place in the hearts - and on the bathroom shelves - of Mumsnet users nationwide. 

In general I find Clarins absolutely heavenly for dry skin, both skincare and make up.


So, as we celebrate women this spring, Clarins are offering three of their skincare staples all wrapped up in one package that’s perfect as a gift. The Clarins Double Serum Gift Set includes three of Clarins’ cult products that promise radiance in a flash: their coveted anti-ageing Double Serum, their new Cryo-Flash Cream-Mask and a lip perfector that’s a 2-in-1 balm and highlighter.

I have dry, sensitive skin and eczema yet I find Clarins absolutely amazing, the texture, the various scents, it's just gorgeous!

Clarins Complete Anti-ageing Control Concentrate Double Serum, 50ml:

This iconic serum is a multitasking marvel, and targets multiple signs of ageing with its dual-phase formula. It aims to firm, lift and rejuvenate your skin thanks to its potent blend of ingredients. Whether mixed with foundation for a dewy glow, or applied generously before a weekly mask for an extra boost - this serum is a game-changer in any skincare routine. 

NEW Cryo-Flash Cream-Mask, 15ml: 

Indulge in a moment of refreshment with this innovative cream-mask that’s designed to hydrate and revitalise tired skin. We love its cooling sensation and the instant radiance it imparts. After just 10 minutes of application, your skin will be smoother and brighter. Basically, it’s the perfect pick-me-up for busy mums on the go. 

Lip Perfector, 21 Soft Pink Glow, 5ml:

To complete this Mother’s Day gift set, this versatile 2-in-1 balm and highlighter will add a subtle tint to lips or a flush to cheeks. Its lightweight formula enhances natural beauty with a touch of pearlescent colour. Plus, its non-sticky texture will make it a joy to wear, from morning coffee through to cocktails with friends.
