Friday Favorites: #00001 Clarins, Clarisonic, Napoleon Perdis

2:25 PM


I've been using Clarins for 4 months now, and I love it. My friend got this for me for my birthday. I found out about this product during my "Twelve Dates of Christmas"Part 5. (For the start of the twelve dates click here.) I went to a spa that used this product. They gave me a sample and I really liked it.

As you can see, I'm half way through my bottle. I wash my face once a day with this, usually in the morning, because it just brightens up my face. I love the tangy smell it leaves on your face. I mean it doesn't leave you smelling like an orange, but it has a citrus scent together with a smell that I can only describe as rich, almost Este Lauder smell.

You can feel how clean you face gets when you use it. There are micro beads in this product, so you need to be careful with it around your eyes. The bottle is a simple squeezable and has a frosted matte finish. You can find Clarins in Macy's and I believe Sephora carries them as well.

I rate this ☆ (4stars).

Napoleon Perdis

I got my Napoleon Perdis from a classmate; her name is Amanda, she's awesome. Anyway, I never really knew about this product until she told me about it. She loves it! We got to talking about foundations, BB creams, CC creams and she recommended I try it. I liked this product, because for someone like me with a yellow undertone, its hard looking for foundations and BB creams. Most of the shades have a pink undertone.

What I really like about it apart from skin tone matching is how light it feels. I think thats what we look for in a BB cream, light weight and great coverage. Granted that this doesn't have full coverage, you can add to it for that coverage you need.

I am obsessed with my Clarisonic. First of all I need to tell you that you need to know what your brush type if for this to work well with you. I got the Mia 2 in powder blue with a sensitive brush head. I am telling you, you can really feel how clean you face gets. I really believe it helps cleansing you face thoroughly.

Use a foamy facial cleanser when using this. I've been using my Clarins with this and sometimes my Burts Bees Radiance and more recently Murad.

I rate this (5stars).
