Having a 9 am meeting on your day off is never ideal, so what better way to take full advantage of actually being dressed and out of the house (before noon) than paying a visit to one of my favourite counters. I decided to take a stroll down the hill and pop into Debenhams and splurge on some much needed Clarins essentials.
I originally went in with the intention of just purchasing some exfoliating face wash, but of course, I left with 4 more items…. HOWEVER in my defence, 3 of those items were complimentary, plus a free bag?! I bought the One-Step Gentle Exfoliating Cleanser with Orange Extract and the One –Step Facial Cleanser. The complimentary items that I was kindly given were: The Hydra Quench Cream, The Gentle Refiner Exfoliating Cream with Microbeads, and The Moisture- Rich Body Lotion. I have always been a massive fan of the One-Step Gentle Exfoliating Cleanser, and could not recommend it enough. This product properly and gently cleans your skin leaving it smooth and free of impurities. It’s suitable for all skin types and it doesn’t leave that horrible dry feeling that a lot of exfoliating cleansers leave behind. Not only does it cleanse and exfoliate, it detoxifies your skin to help combat the adverse effects of pollution. It also tones the skin giving it that radiant glow afterwards. It’s a winner all round! The One-Step Facial Cleanser is the perfect follow up to the exfoliater. Both products contain orange and plant extracts which work together to refresh the skin even more. The Facial cleanser is so easy to use, it removes make up and other impurities quickly. The thing that I love most is that (if used properly) it absorbs quickly, so you’re not left with that greasy feeling after. The Hydra Quench is a fantastic moisturiser to finish on. It absorbs quickly and you don’t need to use a vast amount to hydrate your skin.
I always receive a lecture from my Mum on the importance of cleansing, toning and moisturising, day AND night. Clarins products make it very easy to do and at an affordable price. You don’t need to use loads at a time so a bottle really does go a long way. So there really isn’t an excuse not to follow this routine. So I suggest you pop into Debenhams, or your nearest Clarins counter and try out these products.
