The Lotus Face Treatment Oil claims to be Clarins Cult beauty product. For months I have been meaning to try it out. I have always been reluctant to try face oils/ serums. The thought of slapping oil on my combination skin actually terrifies me.
I have in the past tried Estee Lauder’s Advanced Night Repair, which brought me out in a nice collection of spots. The story of how my love affair with the lotus oil started was simple. I was purchasing some products in Clarins and as usual my skin was going through my normal monthly breakout. I was very kindly given a sample of the Lotus oil to try out.
I cleansed, used three drops, pressed the oil onto my skin and went to bed. I was a little skeptical. I had this vision of waking up with spots all over my face. You would think putting oil all over your face is the last thing you want to do? That night not only did I have the best night sleep, my spots were almost gone, and my skin felt smoother and brighter. I repeated the same routine the following evening and the spots had disappeared! I now use this oil in place of a night cream and is essential in my nightly skincare routine.
The positives don’t just stop there, you can mix this into your moisturiser if you don’t want to use this alone. The smell is soothing and has a beautiful aroma that is very relaxing. The Lotus oil is made from 100% pure plant extracts, which naturally is good for your skin.
If you are not a combination girl, Clarins offers two other rebalancing oils. Santa Face Treatment Oil for Dry Skin, I have sampled this, and find it is excellent for the current winter season when you skin is dry and dull. However, for those combo girls out there, perhaps only use sparingly or mixed in with your moisturiser. The second is their Blue Orchid Face Treatment Oil for Dehydrated Skin which claims to revitalise and restore radiance to moisture depleted skin.
I have used this product for three months and I have noticed that my skin looks brighter, I have less breakouts and my skin feels firmer. In the morning my skin has this glow and has the appearance that I have had a facial. This oil really is an amazing product that can transform skin from grim to gorgeous!
Why not have a try!
