I always get a little thrill when parcels come through my door – don’t you?
This week at EMMA MILLER HQ we received a batch of Clarins’ new beauty essentials and I couldn’t wait to test them out!
In the summer we all want to let our skin breathe, but who wants to compromise on coverage? Clarins thinks they have the answer in their True Radiance Foundation. The light-optimising complex and Pink Opal Pigments, it claims, works to counteract dullness and even complexion (after a busy week, I could use some help with that!) I applied it in the morning and while I can’t vouch for it’s Pink Opal Pigments, Clarins True Radiance Foundation did seem to hydrate and illuminate my skin, leaving it looking – and feeling! – fresh all day long!
When I have the chance to get away for a few days, I like to make the most of it, whether that means swimming, sailing or working on my tan! That’s why it’s an absolute must to have a mascara that will stay put. Clarins Truly Waterproof Mascara holds for up to 12hrs (I put it to the test – no panda eyes for me!) Infused with bitter orange tree wax and olive squalane oil, it also helps protect lashes from chlorine, humidity and sea water, making sure I can rest easy whilst enjoying my holidays.
You can’t put a price on safety and sun protection is one product I don’t mind spending a little extra on. While I wouldn’t usually think to use an oil to stay safe in the sun (I don’t want to start cooking out there!), it does have the benefit of nourishing the skin and won’t leave you looking streaky and pale. Despite its high SPF, Clarins Sun Care Oil Spray didn’t leave me feeling oily at all, and the best part? It’s multipurpose: you can use it to protect your hair too!
