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.
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.
