Review: Clarins Beauty Flash Balm

Clarins Beauty Flash Balm ★★★½
Price: $55.00
Size: 50ml
About: balm-like moisturiser designed to brighten and hydrate skin. Packaged in a white plastic squeeze tube with twist lid.
About: I have heard rave reviews on Clarins Beauty Flash Balm for quite some time now and after two years, I decided to take the plunge and give it a whirl. It is not particularly a balm, as the name suggests, but rather a lotion. It smells nice but in all honesty, Beauty Flash Balm smells artificial and not very natural. Beauty Flash Balm does not react on my skin and feels really comfortable to wear. And when wearing it underneath my foundation and alone, I receive compliments on my skin 'glowing' and 'looking fresh'. I enjoy wearing Beauty Flash Balm on makeup-free days, and wear this alone or with SPF. The packaging is handy - it comes in a tube so it is hygienic and a great size to take when travelling. I can't say that I rave about this product but I am happy with the results, I like the idea of the product and what it is designed to do, but I can think of better products out there.
