I’ve been keeping a beady eye on Clarins special offers, I’ve not been too bothered with any of them to date, but today’s one, ‘Lucky 13th’ looks the business.
The offer is a huge choice of 8 free samples with ANY order and is running for the next 3 days. Clarins samples (along with Clinique) are particularly generous, no measly sachets – hurrah! The catch? A hefty £3.95 for shipping, unless your order is over £50.00.
The cheapest item I can find (where have the nail polishes disappeared to?) is Clarins Daily Energizer Cleansing Gel 75ml £12.00
Lots of rave reviews from all over the net, although it seems to work particularly well on spot prone, ie younger, skin. Most reviewers seem to agree that only a little amount is needed to work up a good lather.
Smells good, lasts a really long time. Cleans skin and makes it feel fresh and smooth. Great for dry skin or teenagers.
I’m 20 with fair skin slightly oily T zone at times, I’ve never had severe problems with spots, but lately I’ve had more than usual, I used this every morning for one week and it cleared my spots up near enough completely!!! Also made a fab improvement with my oily T zone.
I use this daily, I had rather spot prone skin across my forehead and it did make me conscious. It is not harsh or abrasive in any way, which is perfect for younger skin. A pea-sized amount can be used and this cleanses quite sufficiently.
I have combination skin with some blemishes and uneven skin one and I find that this cleanser effectively cleanses without irritating my skin. It has a very pleasant, light fragrance and only a small pea size amount is required as it lathers up well.
This gel based foaming cleanser was great for my acne prone skin, and was a welcome relief after the hot mess that is Clinique. It was great in the fact that you needed the tiniest amount of product to work into a lather, and afterwards, my skin felt incredibly clean.
This is a good cleanser for my combination but sensitive skin. I can’t really notice a glow to my skin, but it does calm the redness. After washing my face with this, it doesn’t feel dry or tight.
This is a great offer if you’re thinking of stocking up on a Clarins product anyway, and you feel you can absorb the delivery charge.
The samples are perfect for travelling and very useful if you want a decent sized sample of product to try before you buy. Brands should really take note of this. I’ve bought a lot of products after using a generous sample first. A mean 0.5ml of product is not enough for me to judge how well it could work on my skin.
As I’m in rant mode, I think beauty brands should keep a closer eye on how they control samples supplied to stores. We all know at least one amazing and helpful, sales assistant who will give us a heads up when samples arrive. But it seems to be more common to hear that a newly launched sample of a skin care product has ‘just this second run out’. Although a quick trawl on eBay will show you exactly where they’ve run out to…
