Review: Clarins Blue Orchid Face Treatment Oil

I like Clarins. I like their lip products and their skincare. When my mom came home with a sample of the blue orchid face treatment oil going “I don’t know what to do with this-what is this” I said “well it’s mine now.” I’ve been using it for a couple days, I was using the Kora organics for almost 3 months or a little less but thought maybe I should switch things up for a couple months so it was perfect timing. Here’s what I thought of the product:

-smells very strong, I’d say it smelled masculine almost like male cologne

-sinks in quick

-does not give me any irritation or burning sensation

-face glows after application

-I don’t add anything else and just slap on sunscreen(mine are generally moisturizing but..)and I don’t feel a tight feeling.

Overall because people paid me compliments on my skin pretty much overnight its a 8/10. The smell is almost overwhelming but the product works for me.

Clarins Instant Light Lip Perfector

My cousin, a die hard fan of Clarins had told me repeatedly to purchase their lip products. In her car was a melted down version of their blue and white (I think) tube of lip balm. I was like “aren’t you going to toss this its all melted down” she was like “no no no leave my clarins lip balm in there that’s for emergencies” and I was like “got it–”

I came across this article about Taylor Hill the supermodel recommending the blue tube lip balm my cousin adored. I debated between that lip balm and this cool slick tinted tube called instant light. I went online checked color swatches and decided on #6. I can’t say enough about how much I like it. Its moisturizing, its compact it comes with a soft applicator and to me smells like caramel. I could go on and on about how much I love the Clarins instant light. Now I understand my cousins obsession with Clarins. I like to joke with my friends and family and when I talk about something I love I go “just take my money!” This was one of those items. LOVE IT
