Clarins Daily Duo Review
Clarins Daily Duo – I am a believer that your skin is one of your most valuable personal possessions. We only get one beautiful body of skin and we should look after it.
What is damaging your skin? Do you enjoy those summer tans too much? Are you stuck with the dry Jozi weather like me? What about having a consistent skin care routine?
Over time our skin becomes prone to wrinkles, marks, dryness or oily deposits. Whatever the outcome, it can be uncomfortable, unflattering and difficult to remedy – especially as a working woman with so much else going on.
For the last four weeks, I changed my morning routine to include a trusted international brand in skincare. I have been using the Clarins Double Serum along with the Multi-Active Day and Night Creams.
I shared the start of my Clarins journey with an Instagram post which some of you may have seen. Thanks to those of you who have liked the post and for sharing your morning routine!
What is your morning routine? Mine is coffee, music, fruit and time to nurture my skin in preparation for a busy day in Johannesburg. So excited to get this blogger drop from @clarinssouthafrica. For 4 weeks I’ll be using Double Serum with Multi-Active Day and Night creams to boost radiance. #clarinssouthafrica #skincare #antiageing #instabeauty #beautyblogger #johannesburg

- I love Serum. I adore the effect it has on my skin, The Double Serum was great for me. My skin felt rejuvenated, it absorbed into my skin immediately leaving no trace of the product. The only thing that took getting used too was the scent of the product as I am sensitive to smell. After week 1 it didn’t bother me anymore. I applied it after cleansing with Pure Melt Cleansing Gel and applying Clarins Toning Lotion, so it felt like I was feeding my skin. As someone with dry skin toner always makes my skin feel sensitive, so this was bliss.
- I found the Multi-Active Day cream easy to use, it added an extra layer of moisture to the serum and made my skin feel soft and hydrated.
- After a full day of wearing makeup, I can’t wait to get home and clean off my skin. After that scrubbing, though, my skin feels dry, dehydrated and very tight. The night cream felt like a soothing balm against my skin and was quickly absorbed.
- There was no skin irritation with these products, they were gentle on my usually sensitive skin.
- My skin feels more elastic and hydrated
