Clarins Beauty Flash Balm

I bought this after hearing really good reviews on this product as a combination of products in one. This  is really helpful for me as I don't want to take a moisturiser, primer or a face mask on the plane with me in hand luggage, it just seems to much. This can achieve all those within one product!

This product claims to brighten and tighten the skin, and I must admit it does. I feel that it's tightening the skin by becoming a primer and filling my pores in. It brightens the skin by becoming a moisturiser and leaves my skin feeling fresh and non-greasy as most combined products do. It's the perfect size for travelling too, 50ml. This also makes it easier to apply my BB cream so I'm getting double moisturiser which can't be a bad thing!

Normally I wouldn't enjoy spending £27 on a product but I feel it's worth it as you only need to apply a small amount. I am slightly confused by the instructions advising to smooth it on rather than rub it in. Does anyone know why this is?

You can also apply this as a face mask, leave it on for 10-15 mins and wash off to give bright and fresher skin. This will be a life saver during my 9 hour flight to Beijing!


  1. I think, but don't quote me, that you're just supposed to smooth primers on. I always rub them in, just through habit, but I can see why the product would create a smoother base when just layered onto the skin rather than rubbed in. If this makes sense at all haha! Xxx

    1. That does actually make sense! I always wondered what the idea behind that was haha x

  2. Much love,
    "You have an awesome blog <3
