I’m sharing a great moisturizer today that I just recently ran out of, haaaalp!! The Clarins Gentle Day Cream for Sensitive Skin has been my go to night moisturizer for months now. Yes, you read that right, a day cream has been my go to night moisturizer for months now.
Confused as to why a day cream at night? I was too at first! I was shopping in Nordstrom one morning and Clarins had a team of their national makeup artists in store. Naturally, I couldn’t resist a makeup session. I explained to the makeup artist that I struggle with rosacea, and he immediately brought over two products that would help me. The first was a serum, which I’ll share next week. The second was this Gentle Day Cream.
We all know I love my Budget Beauty finds, but I’m also a big fan of high quality, timeless, brands and their products. Clarins is one of those brands that I love for both skincare and makeup. I always find myself at the Clarins in my local Nordstrom, and I’ve been introduced to, and purchasing, a lot of their products recently. This product, the Hydra-Essentiel Bi-Phase Serum, however, I was lucky enough to snag through Influenster! If you’re unfamiliar with Influenster, check out what it is, and how you can join, here!
Using a serum during both your AM and PM skincare routine is key for keeping skin nourished with great vitamins and antioxidants, hydrated, and bright. My skin has changed so much over the past couple of years and I’ve noticed I’ve been a bit on the drier side recently. So, I’ve been on the hunt for some hydrating products to help give my skin the boost it needs to stay bright and nourished. The Clarins Hydra-Essentiel Bi-Phase Serum has been an amazing addition to my PM skincare routine, especially for my rosacea.
Ever since I got my first Clarins facial at the Nordstrom at Pentagon City I’ve been hooked on their products. I love love love the Clarins Toning Lotion with Iris (review coming soon), and another product I quickly latched on to was the Gentle Refiner Exfoliating Cream. I use this in the shower twice a week. As the title says, it’s gentle, which I need since I have rosacea.
Clarins Gentle Refiner Exfoliating Cream, $31
This product will work well with all skin types, which I love especially since my skin just went through an incredible change from oily to dry, and not just because of the weather. Overall the exfoliating cream is very light- you don’t need to use much to achieve great results. I feel like every time I use it between the steam of the shower and the ingredients in the product, the texture of my face feels great and super smooth.
I admit I probably would not purchase this product right off the bat- I received it for free from a Clarins beauty event at Nordstrom. However, now that I have used almost all of it up I would def consider purchasing. Exfoliating is so important during this time of year, and if I can find a gentle exfoliate like this one, I’m bound to return to it!
