Oh Clarins - you've nailed it. I do love a bit of skincare, but this two little beauties have really transformed my skin over the past few weeks. My grey-ing skin was also having a breakout and I was having to layer up the makeup to look vaguely human after sleep regression hit my little girl. Although I was still piling on Reship oil and other skincare goodies, my skin just wasn't happy. After going for a facial at The Bamford Haybarn I was told that I needed to stick with a couple of products I know my skin liked to help clear the congestion rather than flitting between products in desperation as I had been.
Cue Clarins Multi-Active Day and Night Creams. Sure they were new and I hadn't used them before, but my skin always gets on well with Clarins products. Putting on the night cream, (£44 John Lewis) my skin felt dewy and hydrated - I knew it was going to be a goodie. Containing Califonian Poppy, it helps to compensated for lack of, or interrupted, sleep. In the morning I then followed with the day cream (£42 Boots) which contains Myrothamnus - a plant that can withstand really dry conditions, so really clings on to the moisture in your skin, helping hydration. After a few days of this routine, my skin was already looking so much happier. Greyness and congestion disappearing and my normal happy skin was returning.
I will also add that baby Sophie was also starting to sleep a bit better during this time - but I am convinced that these products also really helped too.
