Clever Summer Beauty from Clarins

So a couple of clever Summer beauty bits from one of my most loved brands – Clarins. They have a few beauties in their Summer collection that I plan to show you – but before that I wanted to just have a little peek and chat about these two. Both your new Summer beauty essentials – that you didn’t know you needed until now. OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

First up we have the Fix Make-Up Spray – that one, looks really pretty (much like the Clarins fragrance offerings) but this is a lovely little spray that refreshes skin whilst also setting make-up.  The spray includes aloe vera and allantoin.

Ok, so a spray make-up setting spray is no new thing – but with make-up being all about powders and ‘baking’ it makes a nice change to see something refreshing an with the added skincare benefits so it doesn’t just feel good but does good too. Even if it’s just a bit of a placebo, it’s a lovely product to have on hand for an instant refresh on hotter days. Oh, and it smells deliciously fresh!

Then next up on the clever Summer beauty is the Clarins Double Fix Mascara – this is where it gets really clever. This is a clear gel that works as a ‘top coat’ to make any other mascara waterproof. Better than that – it’s also resistant to sweat too. So if you’re maybe prone to smudging on your upper lids? Then this is what can change everything.

What I like about this is that it can take any mascara from non-waterproof and smudgy to perfectly sweat/waterproof. Very clever Clarins, very clever indeed.

    I have used both in their “old” versions for years (since my wedding actually) and both were brilliant.
    I’ve just purchased the new spray, it is really very nice. It diffuses perfectly without “wetting” the make-up which isn’t so easy to find (I have a MUFE spray which I like, but the spray is a bit too strong). And I fully agree with you, the rose smell is heavenly.
    As for the Double Fix Mascara, it is a must have! I don’t know how they achieved to improve it because the initial one was fantastic already. I’m using it over Le Volume Ultra Noir by Chanel which makes beautiful lashes but smudges too easily, and it completely solves the problem.
    I love Clarins and their very smart ideas and products!

    I don’t use waterproof mascara because it is so difficult to remove! How did you get on with removing the Double Fix?

    Both of these sound just lovely, I have heard so many people rave about the makeup fixing spray so will definitely have to check that out once my L’Oreal one has ran out xx

    I particularly love the packaging of the Clarins Fix Make-up Spray, I believe Kiko has the same concept for the mascara: it’s a good idea for people who usually don’t stand waterproof mascaras!
