Review: Clarins Cleansing Products

Very excited to be back blogging again today as I've finally finished my MA in Magazine Journalism, Hooray! I have lots and lots of exciting things to write about as I've been stacking up a list of posts I need to do for nearly the whole year..Anyway, enough of that.

My first beauty products I have been desperate to tell you all about are these two Clarins Cleansers. As far as beauty brands go, I love Clarins. Their products work with my skin, they have a good price range and most importantly their products last which is always a good selling point.

When shopping I'm always easily persuaded into buying beauty products. I think it's the fact the Clarins packaging looks so fresh and clean that I instantly want to give it a go!

I went with the idea of buying a cleanser and came back with two-naughty! But I have to say, both offer different pro's and con's depending on what you look for in a cleanser.

First off, is the Pure Melt Cleansing Gel which you can buy here.

The main reason I bought this cleanser is because it is an oil based product that helps any make up that you have been wearing during the day completely slide off. A true cleansing must!

When massaging the gel on to the face it turns to an oil based solution and once activated with water, it works to gently remove every last bit of your make up.

The gel also includes Marula oil which helps to keep the skin silky soft and radiant. The one thing I would say about this cleanser is that you only need the smallest amount on the palm of your hand. If you have an oily t-zone area like I often do, it's wise to use as little as possible.

This product also helps to remove the last traces of mascara which is also great for when your eye make up remover doesn't do the trick.So far I have used this every evening and I am very happy with the squeaky clean results!

The second Clarins cleanser I got my beauty mitts on is the One-Step Gentle Exfoliating Cleanser which you can buy here.

Out of the two cleansing products this one has to be my favourite. However, this cleanser serves a slightly different purpose to the first and acts as a more intensive exfoliating treatment.

The exfoliator swatched- don't know how it went heart shaped!
Using zesty orange extracts, this exfoliator is still a gentle cleanser but cleanses the skin much more efficiently than the gel. 

The ingredients within the product work perfectly together as the orange extract softens and revitalises the skin, whereas the Moringa Seed extract purifies and refines the skin whilst tackling any clogged pores. I find that you don't need to use this product every night and day but it's so refreshing I find it hard not to use it when I wake up in the morning!

Both of these lovely products are around the same price(see above links) and after trying and testing them I am certain that they are superb value for money.

What Clarins products have you tried?

P.s Clarins are usually good at giving you sample products to try for next time(especially when it's bonus time at Debenhams!).So after experimenting with mine, next on my wishlist is the Beauty Flash Balm and the Daily Energising Moisturiser for younger skin!
