We were invited to check out the new spring line for Clarin’s in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania which was released this February with some items released in March. Let me start by saying the packaging of each and every item is GORGEOUS and I have quite a few favorites from the line which I’ll mark with a *. Be aware that this line is geared towards more natural beauty so the blush, and lip products are made to be sheer. However, they are still buildable to more intense color.

Clarins Double Serum

Double Serum

Price: 30mL for $85, 50mL for $115

Purpose:

Complete Age Controlling Concentrate using 20 pure plant extracts. The container has two chambers with double pumps using Hydric & Lipidic to mimic skin’s own natural oil and water absorption. The separate chambers allow for the potency to remain. They seriously have documentation of pages and pages on the benefits of this serum but findings showed 90% of women find that the double serum is more effective than their current serum. The product smells fantastic and goes on nicely. I’ve tried this for about a week now and my skin feels nicer already.

 Clarins Golden Glow Booster

Golden Glow Booster

Price: $30

Purpose:

To create sun-kissed skin. You simply add three drops (or two if you are weary) to your favorite moisturizer day or night. 83% saw natural tan after just 12 hours of application, 90% had a more even tan. After 10 days of regular used their tan was long lasing, and the tan was adapted to the skintone in over 90% of women. 99% of the ingredients are of natural origin. The Booster also moisturizes skin as well as comforts and softens skin.

Clarins Sun Care Oil Spray

*Sunscreen dry oil SPF 30 spray

Price: $35

Purpose:

Protects skins and hair from drying effects of the sun, salt and chlorine while also enhancing a rich, healthy-looking tan for all skin types. The key ingredients are Senna, Plane Tree and Aloe Vera. This product smells amazing and I can’t wait until we have sunny weather and can actually use this. Say goodbye to the sunburned scalp! P.S. It smells amazing.

Instant Light

Instant Light Radiance Boosting Complexion Base

Price: $37

clarins quartet

Eye Quartet Mineral Palette

Price: $42

Shades:

 01 Tender Pink

02 Luminous White

03 Light Grey

*04 Vibrant Violet

Purpose:

These shadows can be worn wet or dry. (Note while White does not apply well dry in my opinion, it has a nice intensity when applied wet as well as all of the other shades. Again these are made to look more natural and there for are more sheer than they are opaque in color.)

Ombre Minerale Mono EyeShadow Case

Ombre Minerale Mono Eyeshadow

Apply wet or dry and is dry so I can only expect it to be that much better wet.

Clearly Coral is my favorite spring shade this year and Clarins has some great choices. They have come out with some innovative products this season and I can’t wait to use the Sunscreen Oil Spray on my hair at the beach!
