Clarins Extra-Comfort Anti-Pollution Cleansing Cream* | Review

Creamy cleansers are a favourite of mine, it's no secret that I use them in my morning skin care routine so when this arrived I was ecstatic to give this a go. This product claims to sooth the skin whilst breaking down any surface pollutants and in the world we live in now, this seemed perfect. Nobody would want the effect of pollution to affect their complexion so let's talk about this in more depth. 

Product description:

First off I want to talk about the scent, I love a good ol' scent in products but as long as it smells natural. This cleanser has that typical spa like scent which I absolutely love, It also reminds me of a hot summer day because it also has a sun cream like scent mixed in. Not going to complain about this because looking outside right now, I do miss mr sun!

The consistency is indeed very creamy but also light too, rest assured your face and hands will not feel greasy, yay! When I applied this onto my skin, the cream seemed to have a cooling effect and that made me feel relaxed, refreshed and it definitely soothed my skin.

I would describe this cleanser as a 'hug in a tube' since my skin had never felt so comfortable and hydrated. Greatly recommended for dry and sensitive skin types.

Moving onto the 'how to apply this' part, I simply warmed up the product in the palms of my hands and then I massaged this onto my face and neck, for a good minute or so and then I rinsed this off using a warm face cloth. After using this my skin felt soothed, comfortable, calm and even softened!
Your moisture levels are topped up and the product does not congest your skin in any way.
This also removed my face make up perfectly, at one usage that is pretty good! Though if you are a heavy make up wearer you may need to use it twice just to ensure that every trace of make up has been removed. This is also usable on the eyes but since my eye make up is a bit on the heavier side - lashings of mascara and pigmented black liner, I don't think using this is the best idea simply because of time and the stuggle it will cause to remove it all but it may work for those who wear lighter eye make up.

All in all I really enjoyed using this and this may of replaced my current cleanser ^^ 
So do not let the 'city life' ruin your skin, try this and you will not look back, A definite recommendation from me!

  1. I like the sound of this! I'm just about out of my Clarins Cleanser and am using their Cleansing Melt (this is a really good product too if you have never tried it). I think I will pick up one of these when I'm next in town. My list seems to be growing weekly unlike my wages :) xx

  2. This sounds lovely! I really enjoy using cream-based cleansers (like I'm loving Liz Earle Cleanse and Polish) but it's a bit off putting when some feel greasy on my skin because mine is quite oily, so it's great that this isn't greasy at all! I like that it's hydrating too, what a brilliant product!
