Clarins is Calling


Yesterday, when I trotted into boots (like usual), I was overwhelmed to see this deal that Clarins were doing. I've never normally brought a huge amount from Clarins, as I'm not too keen on their makeup, however, since April time, I have been loving their face wash. Anyway, I went over to explore and it turns out that if you buy any two products (I think one has to be skincare) you get a free wash/makeup bag full of great goodies! My previous Clarins face wash was on its last legs anyway, so I grabbed the opportunity to buy two more, and therefor received this free bag!




First of all, the bag is a gorgeous, deep red colour, and the pictures don't exactly do it justice. The main body of the bag is almost a soft, carpet material, and the sides are a fake red leather. Inside, there is just one main pocket (it would have been better with two) which is all lined in a waterproof material. Overall, the bag is definitely quite sturdy, and I can see it lasting me a long time!


Inside the bag, I received four goodies; two Beauty Flash Balm's, a Hand and Nail Treatment Cream and finally a Multi-Active Day Correction Cream. Out of the four I am so glad that it came with two of the Beauty Flash Balm's. In my opinion, they are very similar to a primer, yet the consistency is very viscous and has a lovely feminine scent. This balm also contains olives and witch hazel extracts which is always a good skin smoother.


The bag also contained a Hand and Nail Treatment Cream, which softens hands and strengthens nails. This is great considering, unlike many other hand creams, it doesn't take aaages to soak into your hands. Also, an added bonus is, like every other Clarins product, this smells divine!


Finally, the last goody in the bag was a Multi-Active Day Correction Cream. This also states it's an anti-wrinkle cream, however considering I am still young I will not be using it for that purpose!! However, this is just a light moisturiser, for all skin types, to apply in the morning. I am unsure on how this will react with my skin though considering there is a large amount of fragrance in it. 

Those were all of the things which I got, although I may look to do a detailed review on the Clarins face wash in the future as I love it so much right now!
