The world of skincare can be an overwhelming place. With so many products on offer, and ingredients lists longer than our weekly shopping lists, it’s no wonder that we feel confused about the best way to care for our complexions. That’s where Clarins step in – with a collection of multipurpose solutions that make skincare simple. Catering for women of all ages, we’ll be talking you through the one Clarins product you should be adding to your routine in your 20s, 30s, 40s, and 50s. Let’s do this!


20s: Party lovers, rejoice! We’ve found the solution for tackling tired skin (let’s face it, you’re likely to be burning the candle at both ends) and it comes in the form of the Clarins Beauty Flash Balm; a small step in your routine that makes a big impact. The balm instantly moisturises, brightens, and tones skin (as if you’ve had a full night’s sleep), while the non-greasy formula preps skin for make-up application. As well as restoring hydration and life to fatigued skin, it’s ideal for use before your night out to add radiance to your complexion and longevity to your foundation – a true multi-tasking product! One dose of its soothing formula, and you’ll understand why it’s sold every 20 minutes worldwide.

30s: An essential for high heel wearers and busy mums across the land, the Clarins Foot Beauty Treatment Cream comforts tired feet and eliminates dryness meaning you can confidently slip into some backless stilettos or hit the school run without a second thought! Shea butter is the star ingredient in this cream for banishing dryness, whilst myrrh strengthens nails so your feet are polish-ready in no time. Despite the ultra nourishing properties, its fast absorbing formula means you can apply on the go without the fear of sliding around in your shoes! The perfect product for anyone with an impressive high heel collection or busy ladies who spend a lot of time on their feet. Whatever your lifestyle, a pedicure pamper session is the perfect way to give your feet some well needed TLC.

40s: If your skin is feeling a little lacklustre, then look no further than the Clarins Blue Orchid Oil; an instant pick-me-up for adding a zing back into your skin. Ingredients such as rosewood, hazelnut oil and blue orchid restore radiance and prevent the formation of fine lines making it perfect for those looking to counteract signs of ageing. It’s nourishing formula works overnight to give you a smoother looking complexion whilst you snooze, making it a firm favourite, no-fuss product here at Birchbox HQ!
