Clarins Lotus Face Oil /First Impressions

Friday, 21 February 2014



I recently had a little bit of a skincare revolution or AHA moment when I read Caroline Hirons blog on what she uses on her skin. If you don't know who she is then where have you been? She is a renowned beauty insider that has worked with over 100 beauty brands over the years and knows a thing or two about skincare and ingredients. If you want to know more about skincare then check out her blog, I guarantee you will find some good advice on her site. link here 

That's exactly what happened when I got stuck on her site and found out what I should and what I shouldn't be doing with my acne prone skin.
One of the main things that struck me was that she recommended a face oil made from essential oils. I always thought that an oil would clog my pores and even if it didn't clog would not do much of a difference. Boy was I wrong. It turns out that that's exactly what my skin has been crying out for, some hydration. 
What I have been doing wrong all the time was thinking that I need light creams and moisturizers that don't clog my pores to get hydration but with using deep cleansers and detoxifying mask my skin was getting a bit dry and the light moisturizer wasn't quite enough anymore. My skin was making more oil and I got more spots. Sometimes my skin was just fine and I thought I was doing the right thing but then a week later it would look all spotty again. So I was kind of giving up on skin care and thought that I would have to life with the fact that my skin would never be great again.

Then came along this little gem, the Clarins Lotus Face Treatment Oil. Now I must admit that I took a little leap of faith and trusted Caroline blind heartedly on buying this oil but I am so glad I did. Normally it takes a while for skincare to show its true effects but not with this one, I saw results the next day. My skin looked smooth and even, fully hydrated (juicy and plump) and the best think is that the spots and pimples are disappearing. This is the best thing that has happened to my skin in a long time and I can't wait to see the full affects in a month time. I have been using it for two weeks now, so far I had not had a new spot since ( that's unheard of for my skin) and my skin looks its best its ever been.

I can't tell you how happy this has made me!! It really boosts my confidence and I am looking forward to the days when I don't have to spend hours concealing my acne or can just go out of the house make up free.

  12. Same, same, same. It came as a revelation to me that I need to add oil to my oily skin. Using this has been a life-changing thing for me, and it's made holy grail status. :)
