Sleep in a tube!

I'll never be without this product. I'm 45 years old and suffer from insomnia due to writers block. Flash Balm really comes through for me and makes me look as if I've had 8 hours sleep, smoothing out those dark circles and just making me look bright eyed and bushy-tailed. An iconic product that lives up to it's hype.

Beauty SOS

As with all Clarins Products I love this it is a little miracle in a tube! It visibly brightens and tightens the skin perfect after a late night out, as an additional something extra before special occasions or everyday if you wish! It is ideal as it can also double as a facial mask once or twice a week. When my skin is looking dull from stress and the regular strains of life I pop some of this on after exfoliating and it works wonders.

Clarins Beauty Flash Balm

This phenomenal product brightens and tightens the skin ready for make up in seconds! It has seriously changed my life. Even though I have a very oily skin, I can put this balm on in the morning straight after cleansing and toning for a smooth finish it really does what it says! It moisturises, tightens pores and brightens dull pastches. You put on a thin layer without rubbing in for an instant fresh feel ready to follow with make up straight away for most morning when you have no time to put on a dozen different facial products. When you have a little more time on your hands you can apply a thick layer and leave it on for 10-15 mins as a mask. What a great product. Clarins products just always seems to work so well with my skin, I now cannot live without their beauty flash balm!

Clarins

A great product to have around when you are tired or stressed out as it rehydrates skin really well. A bit expensive otherwise I would recommend using it all the them time.

Beauty Flash Balm by Clarins

LOVE IT! have used it for years and have never found another product that works as well as this. I also have the Flash balm for eyes which is also a huge win. Will never be without this in my (rather extensive) arsenal of beauty products.

Beauty Flash Balm by Clarins

Apply either on its own or over your moisturiser, and you can also apply your BB cream or foundation over the top too.

Its a very versatile product and great for sensitive skin too!

Clarins Beauty Flash Balm

No matter how poor I am, I will always have this product in my cabinet (I hope!).
I've used this since it first came out and I love it. I also have the one for eyes which is divine as well.
my only issue with it is that it sometimes kind of peels/flakes. No idea why but it's horrible!
But it definitely brightens the skin, smooths it out, masks imperfections and dark circles and generally just gives you a healthy glow.
I guess nowadays there's the BB creams and primers that do much the same thing - will still stick with my Beauty Flash Balm!

Gives you moisture immediately and plumps up tired and sagging skin! Also great for clarifying skin complexion with the witch hazel that tightens pores. Radiance in a flash!

This product is quite pricey but a little goes a long way and the tube lasts for ages. It made my skin glow beautifully under my makeup and definitely smooths out my skin and makes my makeup last for ages. You have to make sure not to rub it in but pat it on, and then apply your foundation over it as quickly as possible. I usually wait for a couple of minutes after that to apply powder and blush.

I've also tried mixing a tiny bit of foundation with a small blob of it and making a sort of tinted moisturiser with it. Works beautifully.

I am a sucker for a bargain - especially for cosmetics that I could not usually afford. SO when I saw this product on 50% off I went for it.
It feels really good on the skin, it's good quality (of course, it's Clarins)... but it doesn't do anything for me. Maybe I am blessed with a naturally dewy skin, very fair and pretty much blemish-free, so there isn't much to cover, but...maybe I expected something more (too much?).

Nunu

I am 'addicted' to Beauty Products - providing it has proven itself to be every bit or more what it claims to be.

Clarins Beauty Flash Balm has been in my eyes a 'Not must have', but a Treatment Product - a product you spoil yourself with.. Just because you can. But then after my first spoil... I couldnt live without it. It became a must have.
Thanks to it's reasonable price @R365.00 (even for a Clarins Product) I can indulge in my treat often enough. And it last for at least 2 - 3 months!

Hide those tired eyes ladies....

I got this product in a goody bag at an event I went to at the end of last year. At first I did'nt think much of it as there were loads of great goodies in that bag, so it sat in my beauty products shelving column thingy ( big thing in my bathroom that has 4 bowls that neatly sit on top of each other in a racking system - I keep all the things I haven't tried or are new and haven't opened ie. gifts, samples,back-ups for the products I love just in case I run out ) for a few weeks until I stumbled upon it whilst searching for some cream.
The morning I found it I was in a state: I had woken up late ( again .....but then again it's not really late when I choose to arrive at work an hour early ), I shaved my legs but couldn't find my usual cream and was digging in my shelving thingy to find an alternative ( which I did ) and found this product.
As I looked like a mess, hardly any sleep ( I will find a way to kill the ppl down stairs ! ), I decided to try it. Read the instructions ( lightly apply, do not rub, then apply foundation and make-up as usual ) and proceded to finish applying make-up. Didn't look to closely at mirror - too scared plus no coffee in system and it would be too much to handle so early ( I am not a morning person ! ) and hurried downstairs to grab my things before heading out the front door.
My Fiance, who was dropping me off at work, commented in the car that I looked quite refreshed even though we had very little sleep ( and no, unfortunately not for the reasons you are thinking - tsk: dirty mind you have ! ). At first I though he was being sarcastic and at this point I might of sworn at him or called him a name ( I am not joking about the morning thing.....I need coffee to become human again ).
I arrived at work, had my strong jug of coffee, settled in and started feeling human. I was telling someone at work how tired I was and discussing ways to kill the neighbours ( kinda kidding ) and they told me I didn't look tired. When I checked in my compact my eyes looked fine, even though they didn't feel it.
Lets just say I made a phone call to my Finace to apologise.

Sadly it didn't work for me :-(

This product is not exactly skin care - it is more of a primer but not your typical primer! It is meant to create a smooth brightening canvas for your makeup. It definitely adds a bit of glow to your skin and makes you look well rested. No complaints there!

Unfortunately, with the state my skin is in at the moment, I can't forgo foundation which means I can't wear this on its own. However, when I do use foundation on top, this broduct balls up and starts rolling off as you are applying the foundation. Now that is a big no-no for me no matter how well rested I would look. It is just frustrating! As I can't look past that, I cannot recommend it just because of the brightening effect!
