You’ve probably heard of this world-renowned French brand that focuses on plant basis to form their beauty and makeup products. “Real beauty - made in France”.
I went to preview their collection back in 2013 at Bloomingdale's at Tysons Corner Mall.
At the time, I had heard of Clarins, but never used any of their products (you can read my post about it here).
Years later, I have added a few products into my beauty rotation and was thrilled when I received an invitation to preview their new 2017 products.
I was even more excited when I realized this preview would occur at the new MGM Casino, located at the National Harbor right outside of DC, because it was home to an exclusive ClarinsSpa.
Whenever Clarins debuts new products, they are unveiling new formulas that are distinct yet complementary to their current products.
The main example in this launch is the Body Fit.
Clarins used a new plant, Baccharis, to help reduce and minimize the appearance of cellulite.
This is a product that takes time to show results, but I have been using it consistently for the past 2 weeks and can already start to feel a difference. In terms of texture, the non-greasy feel is amazing and the smell is delightful.
We had a quick presentation to go through the new products and then we set out to explore the spa and receive mini treatments.
It was amazing. The staff knows what they’re doing and the products were obviously top of the line. A later post on the spa to follow, but here are some of the products I had the opportunity to try.
These will be heading with me overseas when I am travelling.
This is the perfect travel size, and I love the slight variances in shades that really match your skin. And who doesn’t love smaller pores?
I have found myself using this product more and more.
The powder and blotting paper compact combo is a game changer.
Light and easy to carry – there’s no reason to not have one, especially as the weather will only get warmer and more humid as we enter into Spring.
Stay matte with ease
These two products are, hands down, my favorite.
I have been stepping up my beauty game recently and these two products have been an easy and much needed addition to my regime.
The bi-phase serum is first to go on. It is designed to help your skin retain moisture no matter the situation. It’s also light yet very moisturizing.
If you seal it with the Hydra Essential Silky Cream, it is basically a lethal weapon to kill dry skin.
Again, it is very hydrating (a theme with this season’s products), but also light enough that you don’t realize you are using a moisturizer that is designed to provide extra hydration.
Oh, did I mention it is SPF 15? Yep it has it all.
This is the perfect smoky eye palette with an easy to use guide on how to apply it - perfect for any ladies out there who are lost in terms of makeup application.
I hinted at this product at little bit above, but it’s another stellar item that has me very excited.
A lot of people consider Clarins as their “go-to” brand for cellulite fight products, but this lotion is incredible.
To fight the dreaded ‘C’ word (I know it is a long battle), this product takes consistent and extended use, but is worth the discipline and, more importantly, the results.
One of my favorite attributes about the lotion is the non-sticky feeling after application, which I thoroughly enjoy, as well as the great smell.
Overall, I think most of us know how hard it is to find the right lotion and this one certainly doesn’t disappoint.
This is such a simple but effective face contouring palette.
The diagram on how to use the palette corectly is beyond helpful and the fact that Clarins has included an actual brush with this kit is a game changer.
The brush is soft but firm to make your contour as soft or harsh as you desire.
This is an innovative and great priced product.
The company went full throwback by honoring everyone's favorite elementary/middle styled pen.
This functions the same way the one we remember – press the color you want (eyes - blue, brown, black | lips - brown/nude), use, then throw the pen in your bag and go.
Beyond easy and perfect for those mornings when you’re in a rush or travelling and want to downsize on some products. Plus it has four different colors!
The added bonus here is that it is only $30. It’s such a great deal!
