I have been sitting on this review for longer than I have wanted to solely because I wanted to get my face on and show you a full makeup look with everything, but let’s face it. Summer is almost over and the days I have off are spent enjoying the sunshine, reading a book or puttering around the house so putting on a full face of makeup is something I don’t want to do on my days off. What I can say is that I have been using almost everything in the Clarins Frozen Makeup Collection along with a few of their new skincare products from the My Clarins line and really enjoying them! I hadn’t used Clarins in a long time and it felt nice to come home to a beauty brand staple. I know you want to see more photo spam as the packaging for this year’s collection was just screaming “Happy Summer!” so let’s get to it!
My Clarins RE-BOOST Healthy Glow Tinted Gel Cream*
With my new life of no longer wearing foundation now that I need to wear a mask, a tinted moisturizer with a hint of glow fits my new makeup routine perfectly. This is a gel cream moisturizer with encapsulated micropigments and pearls that give my skin the appearance of pure radiance. This is a universal shade that also helps the skin to look smoother and more healthy thanks to the “Healthy Skin (In&Out) Complex which is a combination of coconut water and Alpenrose extract. The texture is super lightweight making it perfect for underneath a mask and not so heavy that I feel uncomfortable wearing sunscreen on top. The only thing I will mention that I go back and forth on is the scent. It’s sweetly floral and what I would consider to be pretty pungent. The first time I tried it, I liked it and 90% of the time I enjoy the scent, but there are some mornings where it smells overwhelming. The scent goes away quickly enough, but if you prefer your products unscented, this is not for you.
My Clarins RE-FRESH Roll On Eye De-puffer*
We’ve all seen this type of product before, but I was actually pleasantly surprised at how NICE this was to use! With a tube made from recycled plastic, this is a refreshing gel cream made of Healthy Skin (In&Out) Complex as well as botanical coffee and horse chestnut escin to reduce puffiness and redness. I didn’t used to focus on this area of my face, but now that’s all you can see with half my face covered so when I have dark circles, it REALLY shows! Now, the thing that impressed me about this product was the fact that the metal ball stayed very cold even after multiple passes and there wasn’t a ton of product that was coming out. Some of the reviews said this as a negative thing, but personally I’ve never liked having so much eye cream come out that I have to pat in the excess. I find the rollerball mechanism soothing to use in the mornings and of course the reduction in puffiness is nice too.
My Clarins RE-MOVE Micellar Cleansing Water*
The packaging is super cute, but that’s sort of where it ends for me. I haven’t found a micellar water I enjoy more than Bioderma Sensibio. Garnier is probably the closest I’ve come and while this cleansing water is perfectly fine, it doesn’t do well with waterproof eye makeup and has a “no scent” smell that smelled almost bitter. What was nice was that it did not leave a film on my skin, but I wouldn’t say my skin felt clean either. Suffice it to say, it just wasn’t for me.
I have been using this for about a month now and though the formula is the same, the scent for this collection is very summery which is nice. This is a fine spray that mists nicely across the skin and while it does a decent job of setting makeup, it holds up just OK to face mask friction which I’m not surprised about. I usually spray once after I apply powder and then again once I’ve done my eye makeup. I do feel like my face is “locked in” to a certain extent, but I don’t feel like this is a makeup setting spray that is particularly unique.
