Not long ago I was lucky enough to win a competition Clarins were holding on their facebook page. My prize was a lovely selection of products packaged in a beautiful gold bag which I will definitely get a lot of use from.
In the bag I received a sample of primer, hand and nail treatment cream, Instant light natural lip perfector, gentle foaming cleanser for dry or sensitive skin and relax bath and shower concentrate. I am definitely a bath over shower kinda gal and have been loving using the concentrate to add some luxury to my evening soak, the essential oils really help soften my skin. The hand and nail treatment cream I have been slathering on daily in a bid to help strengthen my poor flaky talons, although it has not been long enough to comment on any improvement to my nails it does leave my hands feeling very soft and nourished. I have not used the primer much, but first impressions are really great, however it does remind me of benefits' porefessional, which is cheaper and contains more product. The face wash is a perfect match for my dry sensitive skin and lovely for when I want something gentle but still effective. The lip product is one I was most intrigued to try as I had seen it pop up on a lot of blogs lately, and I have to admit I was a little underwhelmed, it was nice, but I still found it a bit sticky and just like a clear gloss on the lips. However, it did moisturise my lips and the sticky-ness disappeared fairly quickly, so I would love to try this in a darker shade to see if it makes more of an impression.
