In today’s world, taking care of oneself and taking care of the world around you, are equally important.
And that applies to skincare as well. Certain ingredients in skincare can cause more harm than good to your skin. Research the ingredients, understand what your skin needs and what doesn’t work. Not all products, let alone ingredients, work for everyone – if it did, we would all have the exact same skincare routine.
Same goes for the environment. Skincare plays a factor in the environment, especially when it comes to packaging. Not all packaging are recyclable, reusable, or use recycled materials. I mean, call me old school but I’ve cleaned out and reuse bottles and jars to be used around the household (just make sure to clean off any stickers labels if you don’t want others to know).
Insert My Clarins.
My Clarins believes that if your skin is beautiful on the inside, it will show on the outside. And since your skin is just like you, it needs healthy and balanced nutrition to be in top form—in other words, fresh and natural ingredients like those found in My Clarins treatments. My Clarins formulas are simple and are designed to be applied every day on all skin types. They contain fruit, plant, flower, and seed extracts, as well as the Healthy Skin Complex to bring in the good (vitamins, minerals, and trace elements) and get rid of the bad (pollutants and impurities).
Good ingredients are what create effective treatments for your skin. That’s why My Clarins is committed to selecting the best: to give skin everything it needs while detoxing it day after day. After hundreds of tests, they have developed vegan-friendly formulas that are super rich in fruit and plant extracts, without any phthalates, parabens, or sulfates. The rest? Essential synthetic materials (for preservation and texture) and lots of love.
Also, at My Clarins, they take action! They ensure that what’s good for you is also good for the planet. My Clarins want each ingredient to be as organic as possible: to do this, they work with suppliers that they completely trust and verify the traceability of each ingredient. All of My Clarins boxes are made of cardboard derived from sustainably-managed forests. And as My Clarins are always striving to make progress, their packaging favours recyclability and recycled materials.
My Clarins RE-FRESH Hydrating Beauty Mist
A floral, fruity beauty water to moisturize, promote radiance and prep skin. It contains coconut water and Alpenrose extract to help rebalance and boost radiance, fig extract with super moisturizing power, acerola seed extract for a fresh, rosy complexion, and robinia flower water to soften the skin.
Spritz over a clean, dry face before applying day or night moisturizer.
Beauty mists are such a nice relaxing treat for the skin. My Clarins Re-Fresh Hydrating Beauty Mist has a really lovely and light mist that gently goes onto the face. The bottle is ceramic has a bit of weight. A few spritz is all you need and it’ll leave your skin feeling refreshed and hydrated.
The mist does have a bit of a sweet fruit-floral scent, which I think is quite lovely and relaxing. But for some (who aren’t a fan of strong fragrances or sensitive to sweet smells), the scent may be too strong but it doesn’t linger for too long. After applying the mist, I go ahead and add a moisturizer.
My Clarins RE-BOOST Refreshing Moisturizing Cream
An energizing morning cocktail of fruit extracts to boost skin’s hydration. This moisturizing cream contains coconut water and Alpenrose extract to help rebalance and boost radiance, goji berry extract for an energy boost, fig extract with super moisturizing power, cerola seed extract and tamarind pulp acids for a fresh, rosy complexion and smooth skin texture, and a botanical-based anti-pollution complex.
Apply moisturizer every morning to clean, dry skin on the face and neck.
Moisturizers are pretty much the cherry on top when it comes to skincare. My Clarins Re-Boost Refreshing Moisturizing Cream has a lightweight gel-cream consistency. The moisturizing cream itself is lightweight and absorbs into the skin almost immediately. Skin is left feeling smooth, fresh and hydrating while also leaving a radiant glow. The scent is a very light fruity-floral fragrance, similar to the hydrating beauty mist.
