      Comments about Clarins Beauty Flash Balm:

      I go through phases of not using this but whenever I come back to it, I always think to myself 'I should use this every day.' I don't know how it works but my skin looks brighter, smoother, and at the end of the day I look less tired. Make seems to stay fresher throughout the day. I was very hesitant to repurchase but ultimately I do like this product and appreciate having it in my arsenal of makeup. I'm in my late 20s and have been using this for a few years.

      It tightens the skin and leaves it glowing, I use it as a moisturizer before makeup, and it works as a primer too.

      Nothing Special

      By 10sChick

      from Portland, OR

      Comments about Clarins Beauty Flash Balm:

      After reading all the glowing reviews on this product, I decided to jump in an give it a try. After using now for a couple weeks, I'm not getting the hype at all. I've not noticed it doing any of the things that everyone else loves about it. My skin is not tightening, glowing or doing anything special. As a make up primer, it's just ok. Overall....not having any "holy cow moments" and I don't care for the smell either which is too perfumey. Kind of bummed that I bought in. Makes me question who really writes these reviews.

      My favorite beauty product

      Pros

      • temporary tightening of face

      Cons

        Best Uses

          Comments about Clarins Beauty Flash Balm:

          I think this product is amazing. I am 74 yrs old and have been using beauty flash balm for many years. Some people do not seem to understand what this cream will do. For me, I apply is after my moisturizer and before my foundation. Add the foundation quickly before face dries, using upward motions on both products. Like magic, lines and sagging skin tighten until I wash my face The results are mostly temporary, but that's fine with me. Maybe that's why they describe it as a "flash". Wish they'd make it in larger sizes, so I could use it in other parts of my body. (Anybody listening?

                  Comments about Clarins Beauty Flash Balm:

                  Every primer I have ever tried has pilled under my foundation. I've been vigilant about only pairing like bases (water w/ water, silicone w/ silicone, oil w/ oil), but it never made a difference. My foundation would always rub right off my skin after applying primer. So basically, I just never used primer. Now, this product is not really marketed as a primer, but someone on reddit suggested using it as one, and man were they right! Unlike most primers, you don't let this one absorb. Instead, the makeup goes on as soon as you apply this. And my makeup sticks all day and does not pill, flake, or get cakey. It says you can apply it on top of your makeup to refresh it, but I haven't tried that yet.

                      Addictive scent that not only smells fresh but makes my face look so fresh! My husband says I always look like I just got a fresh facial every day I use my Beauty Flash Balm. The whip-cream texture is an added bonus for this product. I use this every day before my makeup application as my primer and on my days off I absolutely love using this as my stand-alone/last application after I use my moisturizer. I am jyst addicted to this scent! The BESTEST of the BEST Clarins always offers her consumers!
