The Clarins Glow

I am an insomniac. Often having to get by on 3 hours of sleep! Inspiration strikes during the wee hours of the morning…my penance for being a creative! As you can well imagine, this lack of sleep does my skin no favours.

But fear not – I am about to reveal my three favourite products which fool people into thinking I am only 26. (Not bad for a thirty-something!)

CLARINS:  Beauty Flash Balm, Eye Contour Gel, and Instant Light Natural Lip Perfector!

If you need to have your game face on for that Monday morning meeting, then make sure you have these staples in your vanity bag.

For puffy, baggy eyes – the Eye Contour Gel is incredible. I keep mine in the fridge so that it’s extra soothing when I need it. Pat lightly around the eye area with your ring finger.

My addiction…Clarins Beauty Flash Balm. Everything about this balm speaks of calm and comfort. The texture is ever so smooth and melts into your skin, and the fragrance reminds me of Oil of Olay. Classic. It will eliminate any sign of tiredness, and leaves your skin with a healthy, dewy sheen. I am amazed every single time. Apply a swish of bronzer on the apples of your cheeks and you’ll be the picture of good health!

As a lipgloss junkie, I have yet to find one that delivers as much as the Instant Light Natural Lip Perfector . It protects with shea butter, Vitamins A and E, and offers a subtle shimmer too. Not at all sticky, and comes in an array of complementary colours. Totally love this stuff.

You can find all of the above on the Clarins website:
