|Clarins Pure Melt Cleansing Gel & Fix' Makeup Mist|
You all know how much I love Clarins products so today I wanted to introduce another two products from them, these two products however I haven't seen get much love or being mentioned.
Clarins Pure Melt Cleansing Gel
A true cleansing sensation! Clarins triple-texture cleansing gel transforms into an oil that melts-away every last trace of excess oil and impurities—including the heaviest make-up. Water-activates the gel into a silky milk that rinses skin clean. Soothes and nourishes with Marula Oil for optimal radiance and comfort.
This cleanser is different to your average cleanser and I feel I never need to double cleanse when I'm using this. What I love is when I'm massaging this into my skin it turns into a very fine oil. I also love how it totally removes ALL my makeup regardless of how well set it is. Finally I really like the fact how it water-activates and I can see literally how it melts away all my makeup. I do prefer to remove eye makeup with a makeup remover if I'm honest I haven't really tried this on the eyes. This is one cleanser which I prefer to use on alight as thats when I take my makeup off. I have put this to the test and used a cotton pad with makeup remover to see if there was any excess that this didn't remove and to my surprise the pad was clear meaning the Pure Melt Cleansing Gel wins! Retailing at £20.00 I can see this do the price tag well as you only need a small amount due to the fact it turns into a fine oil!
A refreshing mist that sets make-up and prolongs its hold, while providing a feeling of instant freshness and well-being. Also provides continuous hydration and comfort.
We've all heard of MAC's infamous Fix+ well I was intrigued to try Clarins take on the Fix' Make-Up I found that this is very lightly rose scented. I also love the packaging of this which comes in a glass bottle. I would say it worked exactly like MAC's Fix+ the only difference is I prefer the mist on this as it's a lot finer, whereas with MAC's Fix+ I find I'm having to go back to areas it seems to have missed but then I have too much in other areas. I also love how this sinks into the skin really well. The light rose scent does wear away so it's nothing overly empowering. This retails at £22.00 for 30ml and is a nice little change from MAC Fix+ although the performance on both products is very similar other than this has finer mist.
