Skin Care Review: Clarins Beauty Flash Balm

by Oonagh Mc Gowan, Paris, MT FRANCE

Adverse Effects


left my skin flaky and greasy.

I bought Clarins Flash beauty balm as I was looking for a moisturiser which would "pep up" or rejeuvenate tired skin after a late night or when feeling run down etc.. I paid a high price for the product only to see extremely poor results. Having applied a little to my face, I followed the instructions by putting my make up on straight away, only to have disastrous results. It actually reacted with my makeup, and created an exfoliating reaction. My make up peeled away in flakes onto my hands and I had to remove it all and start again. It now sits at the back of my dressing table gathering dust. Don't be fooled!

Disapppointing. Facial massage is a better way to pep up tired skin.
