I have always though that when it comes to skincare you should always splurge. Preventing those pesky fine lines and wrinkles are worth the hefty price tags of skincare and your future self will thank you for it. One item that I finally caved in and bought was the Clarins Blue Orchid Face Treatment Oil and it was definitely worth the splurge.
Dehydrated and dry skin has been the bane of my life, I have always struggled with it however last year proved somewhat different. Pregnancy is said to cause drier skin and at first I did suffer, however since I started using a combination of different products, dry skin is really very rare now. My skin never feels dehydrated or tight and it’s great!
Made from 100% pure plant extract, this oil is aimed at restoring radiance and moisture to dehydrated skin. I love the glass bottle, it looks so luxurious and the dropper really makes application so easy, a couple of drops and you’re good to go without wasting any of the product. I apply two drops to my fingertips and rub them together to warm it up, I then apply it to my most needed areas: nose, chin, cheeks and forehead. Once it’s had a couple of minutes to settle, I then apply the Ole Henriksen Invigorating Night Créme and Clarins HydraQuench moisturiser over the top. The three together have done wonders for my skin.
Instantly it feels better, smoother, more radiant and plump and come morning it still feels and looks so much better. Being an oil you may worry that it’s greasy or leaves a residue on the skin however for me it sinks in without leaving any greasy layer on the surface. I can’t remember exactly when I started using this oil but I know it’s got to be nearly a year and the results are brilliant. My skin overall is just so much more healthy looking and feels so much softer than before with a more even texture.
For £32.00 for 30ml of product, it is definitely a splurge item in my eyes but after using it for a year, I’ve still only used a quarter. Lately I have been so impressed with Clarins and I can’t wait to try more from them, they know exactly what they are doing when it comes to skincare.
