Clarins’ Daily Energizer Cream (a very affordable R255) has been out for a while now. With it’s light creme-gel-like texture and and decent vitamin C-content, it’s an option for anyone with young skin who isn’t especially concerned about wrinkles, be it just yet or ever. It’s also features a seriously delish peach scent that reminds me so much of my beloved yet sadly discontinued Crabtree & Evelyn Tom Kitten ‘kiddie cologne’.
Anyway, to expand the line, Clarins is launching Daily Energizer Lovely Lip Balm (R165) in March.
The super cute polka dot tube’s made from cardboard (love that!) and it hydrates and protects your lips with a blend that includes natural oils as well as Shea and cocoa butter. Again, that addictive peach scent is there in a big, big way which I adore. It even tastes like peaches! It also leaves your lips with a rosy pink tint determined by your body’s pH, much like mood lippie. Know that this is very subtle, however. I’m generally quite acidic so these type of things usually turn bright fuchsia on me (which I love) but Clarins’ balm’s hue is super duper subtle.
Like I said, Daily Energizer Cream is in stores now but the balm is on it’s way come next month so be sure to keep your eyes on the Clarins’ counter if you’re keen.
