Clarins Instant Smooth Line Correcting Concentrate & Instant Light Radiance Boost Complexion Base | Review/Swatches

Clarins Instant Smooth Line Correcting Concentrate
Clarins Instant Light Radiance Boosting Complexion Base

Today I'll be reviewing a couple of products I have been using by Clarins both something different to what other brands offer.

First up is the Clarins Instant Smooth Line Correcting Concentrate this is basically a similar consistency and texture to the smoothing primers on the market, my best of those primers is one by Clarins themselves. This is basically designed be used directly onto large pores, wrinkles and fine lines and it almost works like a filler smoothing out the area and filling in the areas needed leaving a skin like texture and giving you a perfect base to apply your foundation and makeup on. This also can be used over makeup however I wouldn't recommend using this over powdered areas as it didn't work so well for me when I did that. The applicator is a soft and made of rubber which saves the hassle of having to dip your fingers into the pot but rather so can be applied directly onto the face. I have enlarged pores myself and this works a treat on them as well as the fine line under my eyes, I much prefer this over a primer in a pot.

Next up is the Clarins Instant Light Radiance Boost Complexion Base this basically 'naturally illuminates and corrects your skin tone for a flawless finish. It also offers hydrating and soothing skin care benefits due to katafray bark extract.' It is also very similar to a BB cream and can be used on its own for the days you really don't fancy wearing any foundation. I personally have been using this on its own now that the weather has got warmer, it is very lightweight on the skin, gives me a lovely healthy glow whilst evening out my skin tone. I found the shade 'peach' works best for me as I am olive skin toned and peach is a known corrector for skin tones similar to mine, there is also two more shades available in this for those of litter skin tones.

 Both £26.50 each.



  1. These sound lovely! I don't think I've ever really used clinique products except for a lip gloss here and there. Definitely will be looking into these!
