Clarins Skincare Online Haul

I finally made an online order with Clarins! My current products have been slowly running out this week, so I am beyond relieved that these have arrived. I've been using the Clarins Pure Melt Cleanser, Toning Lotion, Hydra Quench Serum, and Hydra Quench Cream religiously for the last couple of months, and have loved the results. I never really thought my skin was anything other than dry, so had been purchasing super rich products to compensate. However, I'm now sure my skin is just dehydrated. These products have compensated for this, and has also reduced blemishes dramatically.

My toner ran out two weeks ago, and my skin has broken out completely since with little under-the-skin bumps. I never realised how important it was to use toner- it was always something I would miss every now and then. The other two full size products I purchased are also favourites of mine; the serum leaves my skin radiant and smooth, and the moisturiser keeps my skin in tip-top condition while not being too heavy.


Unfortunately the offer I used ended this week, but they do have a new offer on here if you're interested. The offer I grabbed included the Super Restorative Day & Night Creams, Instant Smooth Perfecting Touch, and the Gentle Peeling Smooth Away Cream. There were 4 different kits available, but I went for the Super Restorative because I really wanted to try the Instant Smooth Perfecting Touch! As I don't have many worries about wrinkles, the two creams may be handed to a family member.  

With every order, you can choose 3 relatively small samples. I chose the Eye Contour Gel, Super Restorative Eye Concentrate, and Blue Orchid Face Treatment Oil. They're a great size for trying the product at roughly 3ml each. It's really good that Clarins give samples with online orders, and I would definitely be more likely to buy online again!

You can take a look at the products I purchased on the Clarins website.

Marie Claire: L'Occitane Hand Cream

Mum has just arrived home clutching these in her arms! The November issue of Marie Claire (with Taylor Swift on the front), containing both a L'Occitane hand cream & Dove conditioner. The hand cream comes in 4 different scents- Shea Butter, Limited Edition Date Bouquet, Limited Edition Rose Petals or Limited Edition Mango Flowers. I wanted two of the original Shea Butter, and one of the Mango Flowers. I don't think the rose or date scents will be very nice, so I thought I would take the safe bet!

These magazines cost £3.70 each (£11.10 for the 3), with the hand cream being worth £8 originally (£22 for 3).That makes a saving of.... *drum roll* £10.90

Let me know which one you'll be buying below!
