New Year, New Skincare.

Good evening lovelies! 

Its a bit late but Happy New Year to all you beautiful people!

So for christmas my boyfriends wonderful Mum & Sister gave me Debenhams giftcards, so that I could treat myself to some new makeup or whatever. One of them was limited edition, that entitled me to a 10% discount off my purchases and a free personal shopper - so heres what I picked up!

I wasn't sure what I was looking for as I didn't want anymore makeup and already bought some perfume, but I went ahead and booked my appointment anyway. When I got there I sat and had a chat with the lovely woman and explained that I had no idea at all what I wanted, but knew that I was looking at cosmetics. Then she made a suggestion about maybe looking into skincare? Why had I never thought of this before... so she sorted me out with a Clarins skin evaluation.

During this appointment I was able to try out all the products that the woman thought best for me and my skin, which can be quite troublesome (especially at the moment!). So far I have been using all sorts of different products including Lush cosmetics. but have found that after a while they no longer really clean my skin. Here are the 3 main products I chose to get me started:

One-Step Gentle Exfoliating Cleanser - £20.00
Water Purify One-Step Cleanser - £19.50
Daily Energizer Cream - £21.00

(Only came to £54.45 as I had a 10% discount!)

As you can see I've been using these products for a few days now, and only the tiniest amount is necessary to make my skin feel really clean and healthy! It is pricey for skincare but I have heard so many good things about Clarins that I couldn't help but see what it's all about. Although it has only been a short amount of time, I am already seeing improvements in my complexion and can't wait to see what long term use will do!

But to make things better... Debenhams had an offer on, buy 2 or more full sized products and receive 3 travel sized products completely free! Brilliant!

Heres what I chose:

Gentle refiner Exfoliating Cream
Water Purify One-Step Cleanser (I loved it so much I wanted a travel size!)
and HydraQuench Cream-Mask

...and to top it off, the lovely consultant gave me a handful of samples to keep me going! My favourite is by far the Eye Contour Gel to help remove the dark circles under my eyes, it's so cooling and works wonders!

So thats what I got! Have any of you ever used any Clarins products? What would you recommend/are your favourites?
