Clarins Beauty Flash Balm Review

Clarins Beauty Flash Balm Review

Claims : The ultimate pick-me-up for tired, stressed skin — Clarins best-selling radiance maker helps eliminate signs of fatigue in a flash! Instantly moisturizes, brightens and tightens facial contours so skin looks rested and relaxed. Olive and Witch Hazel extracts help smooth the skin’s surface, diffusing the look of lines and wrinkles. Soothing Bisabolol helps restore skin’s youthful glow. Preps skin for perfect make-up application and hours of luminous wear.

Price : Rs 1,800 for 50 ml
Packaging: It is a small white tube, very cute and travel friendly. Nothing fancy but looks like an ointment. Well, most of the Clarins products look alike. It comes in a cute small box as well.

I learnt that Clarins products are made out of plant extracts. Well, it shows too many ingredients but thankfully, no harmful ones.

The product is a peach coloured cream, in a very light weight consistency. It spreads very easily and gets absorbed well too. It does not make the skin oily or greasy. Iam completely loving it in the winters but not sure how it would work in the summer. I have combination/oily skin and to be honest, it did not show any miracle other than keeping the skin soft and supple. It does bring that glow to the skin. I used it as a face mask and almost finished the tube ( Okay it was a sample) and it definitely brightens and tightens the skin. I do have a few open pores and I saw a very mild effect on them. Maybe with regular usage, it would definitely help. I used it on my occassional pimples and it neither did diminish them nor aggravate so am quite happy about that. The quantity is very less and it is expensive. But it works, so worth it.

I used it as a primer before applying my foundation. It does help the foundation application smoother. I feel even my Inglot primer does that ( The Inglot primer has silicones) but this one seems to be better for the skin.
If you skin falls under the normal-dry category, then you should definitely try it out. However for oily skin, I feel this would work only in winters.
Final Words: If you have dull skin, and are ready to spend, go ahead. But I would still suggest you to pick up a sample. Iam glad I did.
