Wow! That’s all I could think when I first saw the new Clarins Sunkissed Summer 2017 Collection. The packaging is breathtakingly beautiful and the collection contains so many of my favourite beauty products. So lets dive right in and take a closer look at these beauties. The Radiance-Plus Golden Glow Booster Made-To-Measure Self Tan is an incredible product. I have unsuccessfully experimented with self tanning. As I have super pale skin whatever I use is way to dark for me and I end up looking orange… Naturally I was skeptical to try out this self tan product. The cool thing though is that you mix your own strength. The way it works is that you mix 1-3 drops of the Booster in with your moisturiser and then apply it as you always do to your skin. This way you control the amount of tan which for people with my skin type is absolutely perfect!If you want to enhance that glow even more then the Limited Edition Bronzing & Blush Compact is the thing for you. Don’t you just love the way they’ve designed the packaging and how they pressed the powder! The three bronzer sections actually are all a slightly different shades to give you a natural-looking tan.
Going straight on to the next gorgeous product the Limited Edition 4-Colour Eyeshadow Palette. These sun-kissed glow shades are all made with 100% pure mineral and plant-based pigments. What I especially like about Clarins’ little 4-colour sets is that they are perfect for travelling.
To complete the sun-kissed look don’t forget to use the Waterproof Eye Pencil in the shade 06 Gold. As you can see the texture is extremely creamy and goes on beautifully. As it’s waterproof you won’t have to worry about it smudging while swimming in the ocean this summer. I’ve always wanted to try one of these!!! You probably won’t believe me when I say this but up until now I haven’t owned a makeup setting spray. The Fix’ Make-Up promises to make your look more long-lasting and keep your skin hydrated, fresh and soothed. What I’ve also noticed is that it seems to make my foundation look less cakey. Long lazy days at the beach are getting closer and closer and it’s never to early to stock up on some high quality sun protection products. The first one from Clarins is the Sun Care Oil Spray which you can use on your body but also on your hair. It has an SPF of 30 and don’t forget to reapply especially after having been in the water.
For those of you who want something a little stronger I’d suggest you give the Sun Wrinkle Control Cream For Face which has an SPF of 50 a try. Besides protecting the skin it also moisturises and prevents sun-induced age spots. As we’ve all experienced sometimes we just forget or the sun protection simply wasn’t enough. That’s where the After Sun Replenishing Moisture Care For Face And Décolleté comes in. It soothes and rehydrates the skin while also prolonging your tan.
Have you already decided where you’re off to this summer?
