Clarins Beauty Party!

I love a beauty party

Just a warning, this is going to be a very lengthy and picture heavy post ;)

My mam absolutely loves Clarins skincare range and no Christmas or Birthday goes by without her receiving one of their products, so you can imagine her excitement when she was invited to the Clarins Beauty party at our local Debenhams. The invite was for her and a guest, so naturally I asked to go with her- and boy am I glad I did!

We were greeted by a lovely table of nibbles and champagne which I got well tucked in to! 

A table full of nibble food and orange juice

After grabbing a glass of Champagne, we all sat around the beauty desk and were introduced to Hannah, the Clarins counter manager and organiser of the evening. Hannah started things going by giving us a short quiz about beauty products and their uses, which was really fun and informative! 

Hannah then  brought out some Clarins products for us to try...

 The first product was Beauty Flash Balm or 'Cinderella in a tube':

Beauty Flash Balm is the second best selling Clarins product (after their Hand and Nail cream) and it's easy to see why; this balm brightens and tightens the skin making you look instantly refreshed. The balm is suitable for every skin type and is perfect for prepping the skin before putting on makeup. This balm is like a full night sleep in a tub. I loved it's smooth texture and how quickly it absorbed into my skin. 

The second product was the High Definition Body Lift:

I must say, I fell in love with the High Definition Body Lift as soon as I put it on my skin. This formula is designed to reduce the appearance of cellulite and make the skin softer, smoother and more toned. Hannah explained that basically, cellulite is a build up of fat of the adipose tissue and water  retention and this formula is designed to help stop the fat making new cells and to control any existing cells.

The formula has little 'beads' that disappear when you rub into your skin and smells lovely and methanol. Hannah informed us that 80% of women said their skin felt firmer after using the high definition body lift for a month. I purchased the product so I'll be letting you know whether it really does work in a later post.

The last product we were introduced to was the Delicious Self Tanning Cream:

I didn't swatch this product because of obvious reasons but it smelt good enough to eat! The Delicious self tanning cream is full of cocoa and is tinted for easy application. I'm not really a huge fan of self tanning but if any product is going to sway me, it's going to be this!

Hannah told us of a few upcoming products to expect from Clarins...

On the 31st of March, we should be expecting the new summer collection which includes new palettes, blusher, lip perfectors and a mascara in purple.

On 28th of April, Clarins will be bringing out their first BB creams which will boast a SPF 25 and come in three shades- light, medium and dark. There's only three shades of BB cream as it supposedly adapts to your skin colour. 

And on the 2nd of June, for fathers day, Clarins will be releasing a bag full of everything a dad needs to look young after looking after us lot ;)  

 At the end of the evening, we each got an AMAZING goodie bag:

And to top it all off, my mam won the raffle and got £110 worth of products!

I had a brilliant night and I can't wait to review some more Clarins products.

  8. Looks like you had loads of fun. I really want to try the flash balm and the body lift, sadly they're a little out of my price scope at the moment :(. And good going for your mum!

    1. Go an ask for some samples, they give really good sizes out! :) xx

  9. I have used the High Definition Body Lift, I had it as a gift, it works hard, the sensation of the menthol is a bit overwhelming at first but your skin gets used to the 'hit' after a couple of uses. It works beautifully, my thighs lost all the little bumps and scratchy bits and the skin was so smooth. Pricey, but it works!


Thank you for leaving a comment, many internet hugs for you!
I try to read to all comments within 12 hours but if you would like a quicker response, please tweet me at @Roxysmakeupbox :) xx
