I have another Clarins product to review for you all, I have not reviewed one in ages it seems. You all are aware of my love for Clarins and their products, this specific product was used by me really long ago! I was vacationing in a city, which had no Clarins at that time and I had run out of face wash, so was sort of compelled to use my sister’s face wash. For the remaining days, I was too apprehensive to try any local brands.
Clarins, has for the very first time focused its wealth of scientific skin care expertise on the 18 to late 20’s age group. The result is a choice of 5 gentle yet super-effective plant-based products with just 3 daily steps that ensures young skin looks clear, fresh and glowing and feels soft and smooth every day. It’s a great start to life-long beautiful skin. Clarins Daily Energizers has an innovative cocktail of four natural ingredients. The first is an energy boosting shot of Vitamin C that stimulates the skin’s natural defences to keep it looking fresh all day, because young skin has lots of vitality it uses up energy so quickly that it does suffer from periods of fatigue and dull skin tone. The second is turmeric or Indian saffron, a powerful antioxidant that strengthens this action. The third ingredient is purifying Alchemilla, an astringent plant extract that regulates sebum production to keep pores and the complexion clear. And finally, radiance-boosting Ginkgo biloba, to improve the skin’s uptake of oxygen so it looks brighter and healthier and to strengthen the walls of the skin’s super-fine network of blood capillaries.
My Experience with Clarins Daily Energizer Cleansing Gel:
This cleanser comes in an orange squeeze tube with a white flip cover. It is almost identical to its other face cleansers, except it has a different colour. I think like all Clarins packaging, this one is also really sturdy and durable. The product never spills or bursts out when you are carrying it while travelling, therefore eliminates all apprehensions of it spoiling your clothes or bags.
So, let’s get to the texture of the product, it is basically a thick sticky sort of gel. No surprises there, the name itself gives it away. It is transparent and has no micro-beads in the formula for exfoliation, it is a simple gel face wash like a Himalaya face wash would be. As for the smell of this cleanser, it is floral, a better version of a plant, I guess that’s where the Moringa comes into play.
I made use of this in the morning the first time, and I was really scared about its effects on me because of my major sensitivity issues. I only required a very tiny amount of the product and it lathered really well and the smell was not overpowering at all. My skin felt extremely clean and fresh after I made use of it! But I found my skin feeling slightly tight and stretchy! Also, my skin started flaring up after making use of this product. I felt as though despite my pores being not clogged up, I had this weird irritated reaction on the sides of my face. I was so displeased with the product after that and was forced to make use of my mum’s cleanser for the last few days of holiday.
Pros of Clarins Daily Energizer Cleansing Gel:
- Gel-like consistency, which feels really lightweight on the face.
- Skin feels fresh and squeaky clean upon application.
- Smells really good, but does not have overpowering fragrance.
- Good quality packaging, great for traveling.
- Easy to wash off.
Cons of Clarins Daily Energizer Cleansing Gel:
- Made my skin feel slightly tight and stretchy.
- Irritated my skin, causing it to flare up.
- Not great for sensitive skin beauties like me.
