If you follow me on Twitter then you know that I got the new Clarins Super Restorative Wake-Up Lotion and the Super Restorative Replenishing Comfort Mask earlier this week. Someone even suggested I take a picture with the mask on while having cucumbers placed over my eyes. Well… sorry to disappoint you all with my non-cucumber eyes having post but I do have great news – I loved the Comfort Mask and Wake Up Lotion!
Clarins Paris equals quality – that was my first impression when using Clarins Super Restorative Replenishing Comfort Mask. After my shower and before bed, I applied the comfort mask to my face and neck and left it on for 10 minutes. While applying the Comfort Mask I couldn’t help but love the rich yet fresh scent of the product. I went on about my night getting ready for bed and curiously touched my face and I already noticed a difference. My face felt so much softer already! After 10 minutes I rinsed the mask off and my skin looked and felt fresher and was so much more softer. I liked it so much I used it the very next night. Same results, same great feeling. The Comfort Mask instantly replenishes skin, reduces signs of facial stress, minimizes the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, evens skin tone and eliminates dry cells on the skin leaving your skin more vibrant and radiant. I absolutely love it!
The next morning I used Clarins Super Restorative Wake-Up Lotion after washing my face. You know what? At first I honestly did not even realize that this is a toner. All the toners I have used in the past were watery liquids. So, naturally, I thought that was the way all toners were. But this Wake-Up Lotion is not a liquid yet when applying it to my face it acts just like a toner except, of course it has a better fragrance and much better results. My skin had a healthy glow and felt smoother. I have not been wearing make-up much during these summer days and these Clarins products make me feel much more confident when I am out and about without make-up on. The Wake Up lotion instantly wakes-up tired skin and counteracts signs of facial fatigue. It also minimizes puffiness and the appearance of fine lines, reduces dark spots and shadows, evens skin tone with a “double-smoothing” effect from Oat Sugars, revives skin’s radiance, and firms, tightens and smooths skin. This product is another keeper for me.
So what makes these products so great? Both products contain Pueraria Lobata (also known as Kudzu), which helps boost your skin’s cellular activity and collagen production while soothing your skin. The Comfort Mask and Wake-Up Lotion also have Oat Sugars that are extracted from the plant’s seeds. The Oat Sugars work as a natural skin-tightening agent and smooths the appearance of imperfections on the skin’s surface.
Clarins Super Restorative Replenishing Comfort Mask also has Mango Oil and Shea Butter (to nourish, comfort and soften dry, sensitive skin), Kaki (which has age-control benefits that comfort, firm and replenish skin), Parsley (rich in Vitamin C and helps diminish dark circles, detoxify skin and increase cellular activity for that healthy glow) and Glycolic Acid (which gently exfoliates your skin).
Clarins Super Restorative Wake-Up Lotion contains Green Coffee Extract (yes… COFFEE!) which is rich in caffeine and reactivates cells and energizes skin. It also contains Ginseng Root (strengthens the energizing action of caffeine and helps boost skin tone) and Butcher’s Broom (also known as Ruscus, that stimulates microcirculation to reduce puffiness and eliminate toxins). Finally, the Wake-Up Lotion has Hibiscus Extract that eliminates excess dry skin off of the skin’s surface — this is why it is ideal to use the Wake-Up Lotion after the Comfort Mask (which exfoliates dry/dead skin first)! The Hibiscus Extract also hydrates, brightens and comforts your skin.
Highly recommended! Not sure about people with super sensitive skin though. You use the Wake Up Lotion daily and Comfort Mask weekly. I used the mask twice this week but promise to be good and use it once a week from now on (honest)!

I am now also extremely excited to try out some other Clarins products, more specifically the new Foot Beauty Treatment Cream, Smoothing Body Scrub for a New Skin, and Tonic Body Treatment Oil. Of course when I try it I will let you all know about it!
Hope you are all enjoying your summer! Take care.
