A few weeks ago I was sent this Clarins Super Restorative Skincare gift set from the lovely people at John Lewis Beauty. The set included three products from the Super Restorative range which is designed to replenish and renew skin and have anti ageing properties. I couldn’t wait to test out the products as my skin has been looking a little dull recently and I always love trying new skincare ranges especially from such a well known brand as Clarins.
Firstly I love the products packaging. The tubs and bottles are very luxe looking with gold and red design and really heavyweight too. I started using the eye concentrate every evening followed by the night cream and then the day cream next morning well before my makeup.
The Clarins Super Restorative eye concentrate is in a pump bottle and has a thin cream like consistency. I really liked this product. I noticed a real difference in the brightness and tightness of my skin around my eyes and a little went a long way so I will definitely keep using this product.
The Super Restorative day and night cream both had a very thick creamy consistency and to begin with I really loved both products especially the day cream. After about a week of using both products every day I did find my chin broke out in quite a few spots which I don’t normally suffer with. I think the creams were too rich for my skin especially using every day. I did like the brighter they gave my skin so I think I will continue to use them but maybe only a few times a week not everyday and possibly use a lighter moisturizer in between. I was sent the “For Dry Skin” version of both products so possibly I might have been better with the “For All Skin Types” day and night cream which possibly might have not caused spots to break out. I’d be interested to try the other version and see if this is the case.
Overall I really liked the Clarins Super Restorative Skincare range, I plan to continue to use the products in my routine but a little less frequently. I might do a post update in a couple of weeks to let you know how I get on.
Thanks so much to the folks at John Lewis for the lovely Clarins treats. Let me know what your thoughts are on Clarins, have you tried any of their skincare?? Whats your favourite product as I’d love to try more?
