I have had absolutely no time to do any posts lately, as I have been non-stop for the past few months and this is the first weekend I have had at home in longer than I can remember. The last skincare regime that I shared was Liz Earle, however as you would know if you have read my past posts, this really did not work for me and it seemed to make my skin breakout due to the moisturising nature of the cleanser. I have since been using the Clarins Daily Energizer range for the past couple of months and it has definitely had a major impact on my skin and really changed it for the better. This range specifically targets younger women in their twenties and therefore provides solutions to the skin problems that we encounter.
The first product in the range that I have been using is the Daily Energizer Cleansing Gel. This product is so amazing and at only £13.50 for 75ml, this is a steal in relation to other Clarins products. This is a foaming gel cleanser and therefore the opposite of creamy moisturising Liz Earle cleanser, which I felt was the source of my bad skin. As this is a gel cleanser, it leaves skin dry after use and feeling a bit tight – whilst a lot of people dislike this in a cleanser, I really love it as it makes my skin feel so clean and it really feels like there is not a single bit of dirt left on my face. The ultimate positive of this cleanser is the fact that it makeup comes off so easily, so easily that even a full face of makeup is gone (without panda eyes) upon the first cleanse, leaving me not needing a second as I usually would with most other cleansers.
Next is the Daily Energizer Wake-Up Booster, which is ultimately a toner and is applied after cleansing by applying with a cotton pad all over the face. Using this after my cleanser remedies the tightness and the dryness by rehydrating the skin and bringing it back to life with it’s green coffee and white tea extracts, which wake up the skin (as the name suggests). Toner for me is a really luxurious step in my skin regime and probably the part I most look forward to and this product in particular smells and feels great. This toner retails at £18, which really isn’t bad in comparison to other high end toners.
Finally, the star of the show as always… the Daily Energizer Cream. This moisturiser is everything! The texture is thick, without leaving your skin oily and shiny, it smells expensive and luxurious when it actually only costs £21, I go the entire day without my skin drying out or feeling oily, makeup glides on like a dream so there is no need for a primer… The list goes on and on, but the most important positive for me is the fact that this moisturiser does not make me break out! I still have a few blemishes here and there but as a whole, this skin regime has really settled the breakouts that I have been experiencing and I finally feel like my skin is on the road to recovery.
I highly recommend this range to younger women as it really does leave the skin feeling amazing without breaking the bank! I am coming to the end of these products with only a couple uses left in each but I would buy these all again in a heartbeat and I probably will, however I am going to move on to trying Elemental Herbology and will give you all an update on how that goes in a month or so!
