My New Favourite Product!
Whats Clarins say – ‘An ultra-soothing emergency treatment for very sensitive skin. This comforting oil instantly calms extreme irritations and inflammations with the nurturing benefits of 90% pure plant extracts.’
I bought this a good few months ago when my skin was really playing me up eczema wise and it just wasn’t working for me at the time. Since gaining control over my crazy dry skin (blog post here if you’re interested) I rediscovered this product at the bottom of my drawer and since then I haven’t looked back.
I like to use this as the first thing after washing my face in the evening. It’s not a greasy oil so it sinks in quite nicely but it does leave a slight residue behind which I don’t personally mind. I then follow up with my everyday moisturiser which is currently the Avene Skin Recovery moisturiser.
I’m not a huge fan of the scent, it has a very strong lavender-y plant-y smell to it but it doesn’t stick around for too long. My skin isn’t as sensitive as it used to be luckily but this stuff still works a treat. It is absolutely amazing on any blemishes - you know the really sore ones that hurt when your face moves. Yep? Them ones! It really does reduce the buggers over night.
I have only been using this in the evening as it is so expensive but it really calms my skin down and makes it nice and soft in the morning. I can imagine this being fine for any skin type as it use it on my cheeks which are on the dry side as well as my nose which is on the oily side and it doesn’t cause any problems what so ever. I will definately be repurchasing this beaut!
