Review : CLARINS One step Gentle Exfoliating Cleanser

Hi my lovely people out there  ! Hope you are all having a fabulous day ! Today I will be reviewing some cool and luxury skin care product . Its from Clarins. Yes, its the Clarins one step gentle exfoliating cleanser with “Orange Extract”.

This gentle exfoliating cleanser minimizes necessity of cleansing the skin separately! So, it means one step of your beauty regimen is cut into half. But how ? It does the two steps in one single step. 

It “Cleanses” and “exfoliates” in one step ! Sounds, amazing right !!! Keep reading…..

What does clarins say ? 

Clarins gentle, spa-fresh cleanser polishes-away make-up, embedded impurities and spent surface cells in one time-saving step — revealing the glowing skin beneath. Orange extract softens, refreshes and revives. Moringa Seed extract purifies and refines while preserving your skin’s natural moisture balance. Gentle Silica Micro beads give clogged pores a breather. Now that’s refreshing!

How to apply ?

Place a small amount of product onto the fingertips of one hand. Gently massage onto damp skin to work into a lather and proceed to exfoliate all parts of the face avoiding the eye contour area. Rinse well with warm water.

My take on this product :

Clarins One-Step Gentle Exfoliating Cleanser with orange extract comes packaged in a transparent good quality plastic tube, packed inside a cardboard box. This tube has a fixed white and red colored cap with a flap, which is pretty handy to use.

This exfoliating cleanser is very gentle and can be used on daily basis, for cleansing and rejuvenating your skin, be it morning or evening. I exfoliate and cleanse my face with this every day morning and sometimes in the evenings. It removes all impurities and any makeup residues and cleanses the skin thoroughly. Skin feels fresh and rejuvenated.

It is an orange colored smooth gel textured cream cleanser with very fine granules. It feels soft and smooth to apply; the granules are hardly felt, but do a good job of cleansing and exfoliating the skin. To get best results, I apply with wet hands on a wet face in circular motions. It is very handy for daily use in summer when the climate is hot and humid and my face skin needs mild exfoliating on daily basis. It has a nice smell, which is not overwhelming.

Does not dry your skin. My skin type is Combination, and it works well ! The company claims as it is suitable for all skin tones. As it is summer in UAE, this works well for me !

It does not dry, nor irritate or break out on the skin.

Overall, a great product.

Price Point : A little expensive on the side, but worth it ! Retails for US $38 / AED 170

for a standard size! 

Availability ?

Will I recommend this product ? Yes, if you want a cleanser cum mild exfoliator for regular use.

Will I repurchase ? Yes!

Would you give a try ? Please let me know your thoughts!

Until then….

My Top 4 Picks of Himalaya Products for your Little ones…

Hey my Loves, today my review will be about the Himalaya Herbals product- especially for the little ones. When you think of little one or kids, the first thing which comes to our mind is their delicate skin.

Your little one’s skin is extremely soft and gentle which makes it important for you to select the products with utmost care. Their skin is still under the process of development, and they are very sensitive. Doctors suggest using products specially formulated for a baby because the INGREDIENTS used to prepare are very mild and the chances of getting skin irritation or allergy is less.

MY SUGGESTION: It is best to use HERBAL PRODUCTS for your baby as they are extremely safe, hypoallergenic and free from preservatives. Always look for the quality and the expiry product.
