Clarins Paris - Beauty Flash Balm (my secret weapon)

Ok so, lately I have been getting a few compliments about my skin, a few have said it's flawless.  Actually, it isn't and I am no portrait but today I am sharing with you one of my secret weapons.  I am sure every lady has one.

Clarins Paris Beauty Flash Balm RRP £26.50

If I am having a bad week and feeling my skin is looking a little tired and dull - I automatically reach out for my flash balm.  This product can be used as a make up primer, face mask or it can be mixed into your foundation to give it an extra boost. 

Beauty Flash Balm literally makes your makeup stick to your face, it looks glowing and dewy and lasts all day.    This balm instantly makes your skin look more radiant - magic in a tube.  It is a peachy coloured creamy balm.  

This is important - if you are using this for it's main purpose - i.e skin priming you must apply your foundation or BB cream more or less immediately after application or it will turn tacky.     This is because, as I said before, it can be used as a face mask.  

Priming - directions for use - Smooth a thin layer over face.  Do not rub in (pat it on).  Apply make up immediately.  

When using as a face mask you would apply a thin layer all over the skin and let it set for 10 -15 mins and then rinse with water it energises and soothes your skin.  

It is recommended you only use the flash balm around 3 times a week, it isn't a product to use every day because you won't reap its full potential if you do this - your skin will become to accustomed to the benefits.  Like a Shampoo if you use the same one everyday your hair soon gets used to it and for some reason it stops working as well.  

By the way I noticed that 123hair & Beauty are selling this for £19.95 at the moment RRP £26.50 so a huge 26% saving (this is not a sponsored post I just happened to notice and felt this info was important)

What is your beauty secrets?  Do you wish to share them?
