REVIEW Clarins Gentle Exfoliator Brightening Toner

I finally bought a decent camera to take pictures for the blog and although I’m still testing it and learning how it works, I’ve took these today and thought they looked pretty decent so I decided to review this product that has been on my favorite list since the first application. 

I have been using this Gentle Exfoliator Brightening Toner for 5/6 months and I absolutely love it!! “A fresh, fluid exfoliating lotion that brightens, smooths and softens skin. Regular exfoliation helps to strengthen the skin’s resistance to wrinkles and maintain the balance between preventing a build-up of dead cells and encouraging cell renewal.”

Clarins advises that you use it 2-3 times a week but I have used nightly for about 3 months, until I got the smooth and perfect skin I wanted it and finally now I’m using it as recommended to keep the glow. It’s very gentle and in all this time I’ve used it daily my skin was never red and was never sensitive in any way, even around my eyes, but I’ve done this “intensive treatment” during the London winter, when you can’t see the sun even if you’re life depends on it, I would never do this during spring/summer and totally discourage you to do so, even using SPF. This is a very effective product indeed but you need to be careful with it as it could burn or damage your skin permanently. 

My skin never felt so perfect and I owe it 97% to this product, I’m really happy with the results and will keep repurchasing it until I find a better one (which I doubt, for now anyway) 

Have you ever tried this product? What are your thoughts? And what do you think about the new pictures?? xx

No makeup. No filters. No retouching.

    Ja' usei e nao gostei nada. Nao tem nada a ver com este, e' muito "mild". Nao faz esfoliacao absolutamente nenhuma. Quero experimentar e' o P50, esse sim penso que possa ser melhor do que este mas o da Pixi acho so' que serve para peles muito jovens mas nao se compara ao da Clarins 🙂
