Clarins Beauty Must Haves!

Claris Must Haves

High end beauty is something I am pretty new to, I am reluctant to experiment with more expensive beauty products in case they don't turn out as nice as I thought. I definitely do my research before purchasing, and so far I am enjoying this luxury side of life (though not very often). One brand which I have fell in love with over the years is Clarins, my nan actually got me lusting over these luxury products since I was very young, she always had beautiful skin and never skimped on her high end beauty. For this reason Clarins products have become my must haves and over the years I have collected certain products which I will forever repurchase.

Hand cream is a staple beauty product we carry with us at all times and the Clarins Hand And Nail Treatment Cream is in the top draw of my vanity and in my handbag. This hand cream is so moisturising, it works to soften the hands and nails and protect the skin during everyday life. What I also love about this cream in particular is that it also targets age spots, which surprisingly being 24 I do actually have. Hands are one part of the body I find show ageing the quickest, they also do a lot of hard work so it is important we take care of them. Feel and texture of a hand cream is very important to me, this cream does not feel sticky or uncomfortable it is rich yet lightweight and soaks into the skin really quickly leaving my hands soft and moisturised for hours.

Fake tanning is a key part in my body care routine, I am very fair skinned however I feel I look a lot more healthier with a bit of colour. I would never dare apply a normal false tanner to my face so when the Radiance-Plus Golden Glow Booster was released I purchased it straight away. I am on my fifth yes fifth bottle now and it is the most beautiful face tanner. I apply two drops into my night cream and apply to my face and neck each night so I wake up in the morning with a beautiful sun-kissed glow which looks incredibly natural. I love the natural golden glow this gives and I feel very confident using it knowing I am not going to wake up in the morning looking scarily orange. It is not drying nor does it have any effect on my skincare I mix it with, this is just radiance in a bottle.

Eye creams are one skincare product I have tried and tested in the many, since finding the Clarins Eye Contour Balm I have kept with this staple, re-purchasing this four times. A perfect everyday age fighting eye cream it is hydrating with no scent to irritate you eyes. Importantly it is lightweight and works great under makeup the smallest amount goes a very long way with this cream. I recently swapped over to the "Special" Eye Contour Balm Dry Skin as I started to have eczema (something I have always suffered with) around my eyes, the skin became very dry and flakey and I really struggled with makeup... my concealer looked a hot mess! The contour balm for dry skin has given me an extra boost in richness to really soften the skin and creases under my eyes, my makeup now sits really nicely and my under eyes are hydrated and smooth day and night. Don't let the price put you off this product, you get 20ml with is amazing for an eye cream this bottle will last me months!

I am yet to try makeup products from Clarins, they come next on my shopping list. One makeup item I do own is the Instant Light Natural Lip Perfector, a beautiful sheer lip gloss which is incredibly moisturising. Complementing my everyday makeup looks adding a pretty sheer pop of colour, the shade range is beautiful all very wearable and it is my mission to collect each one. If you like sweet scents you will love these, they have to be my favourite scent of all the lip products in my collection. Being very comfortable and moisturising the lip perfectors are my must have everyday lip product. 

Which are your favourite higher end beauty products?
