Clarins Daily Energizer Cream
The holidays and festive times are now behind us and here comes the time of the year we all dread. January, February and March are the hardest times of the year for all of us. Those three months when we drag our feet a little more, feel tired and a little depressed. Snow, rain and cold weather can really get you and your skin down.
Now that the winter is upon us, we need an energy boost for our bodies as well as for our skin. The dull and tired-looking complexions will have to be tackled!
I absolutely love Clarins products. The use of natural ingredients, such as plant extracts and essential oils, make these products stand out. Utilizing the best of what plants have to offer, they are perfect for people with sensitive or irritable skin.
Being the No.1 prestige face products company in Europe, not only for their amazing line of products but also for their unique application methods to optimize their effectiveness, they have certainly captured our attention.
It is the perfect time to start using the Daily Energizer Cream.
With extracts of alchemilla, gingko biloba, vitamin C and turmeric, yes turmeric, this cream gives the skin an energy boost and instant radiance by increasing microcirculation. Just perfect for those wintery mornings.
Its fresh and soft aroma immediately wakes you up. And unlike other creams, it doesn't smell like perfume or chemicals, which I personally prefer. Its cream texture is light enough for the skin but heavy enough to keep it well hydrated during the entire day. It doesn't make the skin feel oily or shiny, it absorbs very nicely and leaves a perfect finish. You can also skip the primer using this moisturizer as it helps minimize imperfections; excellent makeup base.
To apply, warm the product in your hands, massage on face and neck (don't forget your neck ladies!) without pressing, and then gently press on the cheeks, the forehead and the neck. Your skin will instantly look firmer by draining pressure points. Video link: http://youtu.be/_tB1uEm3QA4
To enhance results use in synergy with the Daily Energizer Cleansing Gel and the Daily Energizer Wake-up Booster Toner. For those who have oily skin, you can opt for the lotion or cream-gel texture. You could also use the cream for your cheeks and the lotion for your t-zone if you have combination skin. And don't forget to exfoliate at least once a week to keep dead skin cells away!
This morning face moisturizer is a definite BUY!
I give this product 5-lipsticks-out-of-5!!
