A Beauty Flash

Having an actor boyfriend who is even more vain than I am has it’s perks. He spends a fortune in Clarins (the women’s section I might add!) and when he comes home he palms off all of the free samples of the products he buys to your’s truly. A couple of months ago, sifting through a bag of goodies, I came across one of the Clarin’s Best Sellers. The ‘Beauty Flash Balm’ claims to brighten and tighten the skin. Early morning’s are not my forte so I was hoping for something that would make me look a little more sprightly for the day.

I was pleasantly suprised by this product. You are advised to layer it on like a mask and leave it on for 10- 15 minutes without rubbing it in then wash it off or, if you have very dry skin, you can apply it as a cream after your regular moisturiser. I now tend to use it as a base, rubbing it in, waiting for five minutes then applying my makeup. This is one of those rare product’s that actually work and really makes a difference to the look of your face. Not only does it feel creamy and soothing, it also made my complexion look a lot more even. The cream itself feels really wholesome and gives a nice matte finish to your skin too.

Suffice to say, my boyfriend swears by it and uses it without fail before he goes to a casting. It’s not cheap at 18-26 quid for 50ml, but it’s well worth the buy if you’re going somewhere fancy in the daytime and want the occasional ‘pick me up’. Five stars!
