Clarins Duty Free Exclusive Body Set

20130819-165848.jpg

I’ve been meaning to buy Clarin’s latest body lift cellulite control but didn’t want to invest rm210 in something I wasn’t sure would deliver much results.

I’ve always had doubts about shaping creams and what not but being a woman who would like to be slimmer, I wanted to try it.

So this set, you get a 100ml body lift cellulite control which is already rm105 and for rm75 extra you get all the extras.

So far I enjoy using the Tonic oil, the area around my butt is a lot more smoother 😛

The shaping cream smells incredibly fresh and green and is so nice on the skin.

As for the bust gel, I don’t believe anyone can make their breasts firmer or larger by just applying gel / cream so not much to report.

I won’t be trying the scrub anytime soon but if it’s spectacular I will report back.

It’s available at KLIA for rm180. Have spotted this in LAX and Changi too.

Clarins Hydraquench Gel Cream

I can’t stand how good this cream smells. Doesn’t matter how often I’ve used this, the scent makes me want to lather on more!

This has been my go-to moisturizer for my hormonal combination skin. It sinks in really quickly and the gel cream formula leaves my skin feeling refreshed and matte enough for me to not have to worry about oiliness. This reminds me a lot of Shiseido Pureness gel cream and sk-ii cellumination deep surge.

It won’t fix the dry patches so use this only if you have combination to oily skin. I have tried the cream version and it tends to just sit on my skin.

My twice a day routine has been simplified to this:

SK-II Facial treatment repair C to hydrate, repair my scars and balance the oiliness.

Hydraquench to keep my skin hydrated enough.

So far it’s keeping those crazy pimples under control.

Price: RM180

Clarins birthday gift

I have to say Clarins treat their beaute club members well. Look what I got on top of a free facial and double points!

I have been using less clarins lately because my skin has gone a bit crazy and I am now hoping sk-ii’s facial treatment c serum will get it back on track.

This by the way is one of my favourite shower gels.

Giving Clarins a go & more

I ‘yap’ a lot about SK-II but I’ve stopped using their range. I did get my dad the new stempower moisturiser but that’s about all I’ve purchased from them since early this year. The facial treatment essence is still in my routine but my skin is no longer reacting to their products. Maybe sometimes we just have to rotate our skincare. I don’t know. My skin was all over the place and it’s now normalized with minimal blemish and congestion.

A while ago I was given the Facial V serum sample alongside a deluxe sized hydraquench serum and gel cream. A serum that slims your face, sounds far fetched but that aside, I really liked how it felt on my skin. I got a full bottle and I think MAYBE it’s helped and yes I would repurchase but I’m in no hurry to fork out more money.

Lotus oil was a blind buy based on reviews on makeupalley. It hasn’t performed miracles but I do believe this works for congested skin. My beautician exclaimed “It has never been this easy to extract (gunk) out of your face!”

I am on the fence about hydraquench gel cream but I do think the serum has helped in keeping my skin hydrated. No break outs as yet.

Avene was my substitute from sasa when i couldn’t get a travel sized face spray from caudalie. It’s hard to convince myself that it has any benefits because it’s not scented. I can be shallow that way.

Lastly, LOVE LOVE LOVE Voyage D’Hermes deodorant. So clean and fresh.
