I don’t exactly remember who asked me to review this product but whoever did, i just want to go down on my knees and say thank you for this one. 🙂
What I love about Clarins Beauty Flash Balm :
First I’d like to mention about 3 major instances when this product has shown wonders to my skin.
1. I had a long day in office and Sanjeev made a plan to go to a friend’s place. I was having a bad skin day that day so I decided that I wouldn’t do any makeup, I just cleansed my face and applied the Beauty Flash Balm. To my surprise, this product made my skin look hydrated , rested and fresh within moments of applying it. My skin was glowing. I didn’t feel the need to apply makeup, really. The plan of going to friend’s place got cancelled so I went off to sleep with this on. The next morning my pores looked smaller and skin looked tightened. I was happy. 🙂
2. I had to rush to office for some work and I just didn’t have time to do makeup or even skincare the other day. I just applied my sunscreen and rushed. The harsh AC cooling made my skin look parched, dry and after a while , I noticed that I had two dry patches on my face. By evening my face had developed tiny pimples too. :(( I came back home, I just cleansed my face with a cleansing milk and applied a thick layer of beauty flash balm on my face and left it for good 20 minutes. It dries to a bread crumb kinda texture. I just wiped my face with a tissue. My skin had regained its hydration, it looked softer and smoother. The next morning, the little pimples were barely to be seen on my face. And my pores were definitely looking tighter.
3. My skin broke out from a skincare product recently. I applied beauty flash balm at night and my skin was 90% clear the next morning. :jaiho:
I am not sure if this is a remedy for break outs but it is working awesomely on my normal to dry skin.
- You can also use it as a makeup primer. It is not greasy or oily. It is like a hydrating primer. I mostly don’t use face primers in winters because my foundation stays long as it is. I don’t mind using this at all. A little handy tip would be to wait for a minute or so before applying your foundation or it makes your foundation look way too dewy.
- I don’t find it too moisturizing on its own so if you have a long day ahead, I suggest that you moisturize your face with your regular skincare and then use this.
- You can use it as a hydrating mask.
- It has a light soapy fragrance, which I quite like. It stays on for long, which may not come to everyone’s liking.
- It is not greasy or oily. It has a light gel cream like texture that gets absorbed on your skin easily. On spreading ,it feels light watrey kinds.
- It does not clog pores.
- I don’t mind paying the price for this beauty balm but I feel that the quantity is quite less. Especially when you use this as mask, a lot of product gets used up.
You can use Clarins Beauty Balm daily but I personally like to use it on alternate days. This is one product that is going to be a staple in my skincare routine ALWAYS.
It is a hydrating skincare product so it is a great one for those with normal, dry or combination skin-types. It adds a bit of glow to the face so that may be a little shiny for those with very oily skin. I would still suggest that you give this a shot. It is a great skin drink and makes your skin look so many times better. 🙂
