DID YOU KNOW? Clarins Beauty Flash Balm was our #1 Clarins skincare product in 2016.
It was also one of the top 5 skincare products at allbeauty.
This smooth and moisturising base is for all types of skin, is dermatologist tested and non-comedogenic. It comes in the form of a cream and there are three ways to use it:
1. Under makeup as a primer – this improves makeup application, the complexion of the skin throughout the day and brings more brightness
2. As a mask for soothing care and to smooth fine lines
3. As a beauty balm on its own for makeup-free days or going to the gym etc
How to apply: the application is pretty easy. As it says on the tube, don’t massage it into your skin, just apply a thin layer with your fingers. You’ll find it really lightens and illuminates the face and slightly unifies your skin tone. You actually don’t need makeup to look bright!
How to use as a mask: apply a thick layer and leave on for 15 minutes. Then remove the excess with a tissue. Skin will be bright, with a reduction in the appearance of fine lines.
For the makeup ‘addicts’: we know what we usually go through when makeup looks faded. After a couple of hours, when your skin looks dull and when your last resort is to fully remove your face and re-apply it during the day – a real hassle! This product will help you with that daily struggle. When used under your makeup it’s simply magic. And it doesn’t move – 1, 2, 8 hours, you will literally have the same healthy looking skin. In fact, you won’t want to wash your face at the end of the day!
The cream is not scented, unlike other Clarins products. It does have a light smell but that fades after application.
Monisha’s Verdict: What’s so great about Beauty Flash Balm? You see the effects straight away. Surprising as it sounds, you’ll feel your skin getting tighter and brighter from the first application. It helps keep your makeup looking freshly applied, without the need for a re-touch.
