Clarins New Skincare And Makeup For Autumn

Clarins, the luxury skincare brand, have brought out new updated skin creams this Autumn. Based on the skin cream recipes that many women already love, the Super Restorative Day Cream and the Super Restorative Night Cream have been updated to include targeted and organic plant extracts, devised to meet the needs of older skin, including those that have hormonal changes due to the ageing process. 



Leading up to the menopause skin goes through many changes becoming dry and more lined. Using these products together Clarins feels will help the skin become more resilient, replenished and brighter. 

Super Restorative Day Cream





Ten years since the Super Restorative Day Cream became many women's skin saviour, Clarins goes one step further and adds organic Harungana extract, from a 'healing' tree from Madagascar. Harungana has been showed to help on the synthesis of collagen, helping to restore cell structures, reducing wrinkles and slackening of skin.

This gorgeous skin cream which has a light floral fragrance, applies like a dream. Perfect to prep the skin before makeup, it sinks in well and leaves a slight sheen. Skin feels soft, nourished and smelling great.

Super Restorative Night Cream




The Super Restorative Night Cream has had the organic extract Montpellier Rock-Rose added to help target age spots following hormonal changes. Over time skin is tightened, nourished and replenished and age spots reduced. Packed full of natural ingredients such as Harungana, shea butter, mango and ginkgo biloba it also smells great when applied. 

Although rich the cream does not sit on top of the skin, instead it feels as if it sinks in well without any greasy feel.  On application skin feels soft, with no sign of tightness, and next day lines are plumped up and smoothed. Added to this the pleasant rose fragrance makes this a great buy and a luxury everyday skincare treat. 

Both 50ml creams are available now in a smart red glass jar and are priced at £69 for the day cream and £73 for the night cream. These creams are not in the budget bracket but are a must have for those ladies who take their skincare seriously. 

Ombre Matt Cream-to-Powder Eyeshadow




These eyeshadows are soft and silky creams in the pots but change to powder on the skin. They come in a range of silky, blendable colours in flattering earthy tones such as taupe, nude rose and sparkle grey. What I loved about these eyeshadows is that they stayed in place and did not go into the creases of my eye. 



It is easy to add more colour and blend these eyeshadows as the day progresses. Amazingly long lasting I recommend these eyeshadows for a flawless day to evening look. Priced at £19 each, they are decent value due to the high level of pigmentation and long lasting nature of each eyeshadow.

In conclusion you definitely get what you pay for in luxury skincare and makeup. I will be asking Santa for some Clarins makeup this year in my stocking and next on my list is their Everlasting Foundation. Clarins, I think you have a new fan!

Tell me, do you have any Clarins products? What do you think of the eyeshadow colours?

    1. They are a great brand. They also have lots of great videos on their website, showing how to apply makeup if you only have 5 mins, 10 mins or 15 mins.

  4. I used to use Clarins all the time, but I've really gone off high street brands in recent years. So much of what you pay for the product goes to support their high street presence and glossy magazine ads etc. Now I prefer more obscure stuff, and particularly Korean brands where the products are gentler. That said, this does look good and I will check it out next time I'm near a Clarins counter.

    1. I think their makeup is very high quality, and the colours seem very pigmented and last a long time.
