Clarins Ultra-Matte Rebalancing Lotion

Clarins definitely top my list as one of my favourite skin care brands. I was drawn to this moisturiser as I absolutely love their Lotus Facial Oil – in fact it’s become one of my most essential skin care products in recent months. So after trying a few other products from the brand and not being able to fault a single one of them, I decided to give one of their moisturisers a try.

Clarins Ultra-Matte Rebalancing Lotion (£26) is an oil controlling moisturiser that aims to  purify the skin and balance it, whilst tightening pores and helping to obtain a long lasting matte appearance. I can be pretty hard to please when it comes to moisturisers; they have to be oil free, light and hydrating and not feel greasy or too rich on my skin. I adore this as is sinks in nicely and doesn’t feel heavy on the skin at all. It feels lovely and refreshing once applied and gives my skin a healthy, natural glow and evens out my complexion, giving it a matte appearance. It certainly wakes my skin up and makes it look so radiant! Like all Clarins products, it smells beautiful too.

I would say this is a great moisturiser for the warmer months as it leaves skin feeling so fresh and does such an impressive job at keeping my complexion shine free for hours. I’ve been using this every morning for the past few weeks and my skin has been looking all the better because of it. As much as I do love this for it’s oil control and ability to purify my pores, I don’t find it as hydrating as I would like it to be. This is probably me being just being picky! It is enough for daytime though, but I always make sure I apply a night cream and use a facial oil along with it for a bit more nourishment come evening. Saying that, it won’t stop me from using it as I do love the results, but I am still looking for something that’s a bit more hydrating. If any of you have any recommendations let me know!

Have you tried this? What do you think of Clarins products?

  3. I love Clarins products too. I haven't tried this one yet, but I will definitely give it a go, I think it would be perfect for summer!!

  4. I'm a big fan of Clarins, I'm currently using their facial cleanser and lotus oil, which are both great products. I used to use this moisteriser a few years ago, it's great for keeping skin matte.
