Clarins Sexy Summer Products - Aquatic Treasures

The Aquatic Treasures collection from Clarins is timed perfectly for summer. 
The collection which features shimmering shades of gold and bronze looks flattering on most complexions. 




Aquatic Summer Treasures Summer Bronzing Compact. 


Aquatic Summer Treasures Bronzing Compact £30

This Aquatic Summer Treasures Summer Bronzing Compact is a glamorous bronzing compact, packaged very prettily with a handy mirror included and a shell inspired design. What I like about this bronzer is that it has 4 customisable designs, all slightly different. Not sure if one is too dark? Mix it up with a lighter shade. The shades are matt and thus very natural looking and the powder feels soft and easy to blend with a brush. Added to the formulation are soft focusing pigments. This give you a very flattering slightly luminous effect on the skin without the high shine of some bronzers. It could also be used for contouring the skin or even brushed lightly on your legs.




Also Clarins are very proud of their innovative "anti-pollution complex" in this compact which fights the signs of premature ageing and loss of radiance linked to pollution. 






The four colours of the bronzer

Truly Waterproof Mascara
Truly Waterproof Mascara £21

If like me, you are always on a quest to find a good waterproof mascara, you probably spend hours browsing the beauty counters as soon as the summer season hits us. Getting the combination right can be tricky. Firstly you want a great waterproof formulation, one that stays put through swimming, tears, watering eyes and the heat. The mascara wand is vitally important too. This has to curl and define to enhance your lashes.  How the product is distributed on the wand is crucial. Even distribution is key here, as you want the product to coat each lash and you don't want the mascara to be clumpy.  So I was looking forward to trying the Clarins Truly Waterproof Mascara.

Application of the product was easy and smooth - the fine filaments of the brush appear to coat every lash, gripping it from root to tip. For best results and a more enhanced look I recommend applying it twice. Added ingredients of bitter orange tree wax and olive squalane nourishes, conditions and protects from sea water, chlorine and other such nasties. I was very pleased with the product, as it opened up my eyes and was still a natural look. If you want a false lash effect this is not the product for you though. At the end of the day it did slightly smudge but had more staying power than other mascaras I have tried. Remove with a good waterproof mascara remover.

Fix' Make-Up
Fix' Make-Up £22

Clarins Fix' Make-Up is a must have hero product for summer. Why? Well it is a fine mist spray that works by fixing your make up with a fine polymer film. The spray feels cooling on, and non greasy and it is suitable for all skin types. Fructose and Rose Cohobat keeps skin supple, whilst Vitamin C and Grapefruit brightens the complexion. Shine is also absorbed with fine microspheres of Silica. 




I could have done with this product when I visited Florida last year. My makeup melted off my face, the weather was so humid! Keep this in the fridge to freshen up on the hottest of days and in your handbag to fix your make up in place if you are out partying after a day in the office. I am waiting for a super hot day to try this out, so will report back in due course if this helps my makeup stay put, although the spray certainly feels cooling on the skin.

So here are some of the Clarins Aquatic Treasures selection for Summer. They also have some gorgeous shimmery Ombre Iridescente Eyeshadows in Aquatic Rose and Aquatic Grey, as well as lots of other summery products. So get your flip flops on, and get down to the Clarins counter at your nearest department store to get yourself in the summery vibe.

  1. OOOOO I love the sound of the Fix! My make up either sits in my vast array of wrinkles or melts off with any hint of heat so sounds ideal! Will love to know how you get on with it in the heat x

  3. I had eye surgery recently and binned all my make up as was concerned about contamination and infection. Good to have recommendations on what to replace all with!

    1. I think if you use a good primer, then a non oily foundation, powder well and use Fix It, most makeup will stay put.
