Clarins Beauty Flash Balm
Availability: Clarins counters countrywide
If you snooped around the beauty bags of many a supermodel in the ’80s and ’90s (and still today, we’re sure) you’d find a much-used tube of Beauty Flash Balm. It’s a legendary radiance booster and instant wake-up call and can cleverly be used in more than one way. While it’s simple to smooth on (just a thin layer, mind you) after cleansing and toning and immediately before your make-up, you can also use it as your mask up to three times a week (tip: it’s particularly good for very sensitive skin). The demand makes this SOS skin saver speak for itself. Beauty Flash Balm (which, incidentally, is 30 years old) is one of the top 10 sellers in South Africa and one of the top three in France.
