CLARINS BEAUTY FLASH BALM
The balm comes in a lovely tube that is easy to use and quite handy if you have to travel as well. The balm itself has a slight orange tint to it. I usually use it as a serum underneath my daily moisturizer. I also like to use it as a primer on occasion but this winter I used it as a serum because my skin needed some life knocked back into it.
I take a pea size amount and massage into my skin and once it has absorbed I apply the moisturizer. It takes about a minute to get absorbed into the skin so you don't have to wait too long. I do this because I noticed that it can tend to flake if I put my moisturizer immediately after so to avoid this I let the balm get absorbed fully. Once my skincare routine is complete my skin is so much softer and feels much smoother. Once I stared using this daily , within a few weeks my skin felt alive, I felt it looked brighter and more awake. the dullness had disappeared and I was very happy with how my skin was looking, full of life and glowing. The winter breeze couldn't get my skin down this time, yeah. As I mentioned before I like to use it as a primer too, so whenever I wear a foundation I use this as my initial base, this way my foundation looks softer and kind of has a glowing finish to it. The beauty flash balm is a lovely base that the foundation glides easily and it doesn't flake.
I like using it the most as a serum, my skin benefited the most this way. it was brighter and had a glow to it and in the dull winter this was more than welcome. I continue to use this even though the weather has warmed up because I feel like it helps to keep my skins bright glowing effect.
However way you like to use, I think the Beauty Flash Balm is something we should all have in our skincare cabinet, you never know when you might need it. I definitely recommend this if your on the look out for a brighter glowing complexion.
