Beauty legend: Clarins Beauty Flash Balm


One of the first beauty products I seriously invested in over twenty years ago (!) was a tube of Clarins’s famous Beauty Flash Balm. It was a winner then and it’s a winner now, so I thought it was time to give a little love back by singing its wondrous praises!
For anyone that has never used it, Beauty Flash Balm is a beauty booster - much loved by makeup artists in particular - that pretty much eliminates all signs of fatigue and that general look of being a tad worn out. It’s just the thing for a quick "pick-me-up" after a late night on the tiles or for a boost before an evening out, and comes in the form of a non-oily, lightweight balm that packs major punch.
In the formula you’ll find the gentle skin-tightening benefits of Olive Extract and Witch Hazel to diminish the appearance of fine lines before you know it, and skin actually feels firmer and softer to the touch courtesy of Bisabolol, which is soothing and softening. It’s also perfect for pretty much any skin type, and was every smart woman’s primer of choice before we even knew they existed!
You can use it in a variety of ways depending on your skin type and needs, such as straight after cleansing in gentle, sweeping movements (don’t rub it in) all over the face and neck, or after moisturiser if your skin is on the dry side.
For a super boost of the good stuff a couple of times a week of after something like a plane flight, after cleansing apply a thick layer of Beauty Flash Balm and leave on for 10-15 minutes before gently tissuing off the excess. Pure magic!
