I’m a simple guy. I’m not phased by talk of anti-ageing, blemish-removing, wrinkle-reducing stuff. I just want a healthy skin.
So I use a face wash and sunscreen. Albeit occasionally. And the idea of using three products daily seemed like overkill. Fortunately the cheeky red elements to the Clarins boxes added a sense of energy to this adventure. So I explored…
The Clarins Active Face Wash, R215, smells great and is creamier in texture and appearance than I expected. Not your average face wash. It foams slightly but didn’t leave my skin feeling uncomfortably dry.
Next up: Super Moisture Balm, R325. The name says it all really – plus it soothes and energises (and the pale blue cream is way more fun than boring ol’ sunscreen).
Social Experiment #1: If I don’t wear aftershave, will my friends pick up on the soft, clean smell of Clarins? Results: Nope. More importantly, within four weeks, a number of colleagues commented on the healthy appearance of my skin. High-5 Super Moisture Balm!
The ‘prettiest’ product in my trial pack was the Anti-Fatigue Eye Serum, R260. The transparent blue, space-age container was a bit flashy for my liking. Heads up: the pump action dispenser squirts out a little too much serum to use under both eyes. The cool blue gel is refreshing and quickly absorbed. Does it work… the jury (aka my wife) is still undecided.
After one month’s use, I have loads of the three products left over and I have a healthier looking skin. Mission accomplished.
