Life is full of drama, but your skincare doesn’t have to be. Clarins certainly agrees. What if I told you that your two-step skincare routine you’ve been dreaming of is about to become a reality? Meet your hardworking cleanser/exfoliator and toner sans alcohol.
Summer started great and then the last few weeks have just been brutal with soaring temperatures (!) and humidity-causing frizz. Let’s say that it’s been gross indoors and 2-3 times short showers don’t even cut it.
This weather has been causing havoc on my skin like enlarged pores, super oily T-zone (you’ll mistake my forehead as a mirror), and random breakouts. Of course, this isn’t my first skincare nightmare rodeo so; usually, I try to keep my day and night time regime simple. Avoid layering and very minimal to no makeup. Just sunscreen.
What’s excellent about Clarins dream team duo is that this is precisely what I’ve been looking for.
Clarins Two-Step Skincare Routine
Clarins One-Step Gentle Exfoliator is the perfect detox as it doesn’t only cleanse but at the same time exfoliates and renews in one step. The eco-friendly exfoliating silica beads help my clogged pores breath again by routing out embedded impurities that usually can cause those pesky spots.
I only need a small amount to get the lather going while massaging gently to exfoliate my skin. The subtle citrus scent makes the experience very refreshing, a sweet treat on a hot summer night or pick me up in the morning.
- Orange extract softens, refreshes, and helps bring my skin’s radiance back. It’s very noticeable once I rinsed it off.
- Moringa seed extract purifies, refines, and make sure that my skin stays hydrated.
Now for a soothing experience, I love Clarins Toning Lotion with Camomile, which is the second (and last) step that removes any traces of cleanser or dirt.
- Camomile helps de-stressed, keeps my skin’s pH balanced, and I get to enjoy that spa-like smell in my bathroom.
- This alcohol-free toner works like a charm on my sensitive skin just as it would do so if you have dry or normal skin type.
One-Step Gentle Exfoliating Cleanser and Toning Lotion are the dream team for very good reasons as they both work together to purify and get your skin ready for serum and/or moisturizer application.
In just two-steps, I get happier and glowing skin ready to face whatever the weather is.
