Most Helpful Positive Review Miracle Balm!
I have been using Beauty Flash Balm for twenty years. It is, by far, the most consistent and best pick-me-up cream on the market, and I have tried many over the past two decades. My skin was always oily, up until five years ago, when it became combination. Now, it's on the dry side. And yet, Beauty Flash Balm has done its job through all my complexion/aging changes. When I still had breakouts, this balm seemed to calm and heal them. You can use it before putting on makeup; you can use it once all your makeup has been applied, too, by putting a pea-sized amount in your palm and pressing it onto your face and neck. I use it twice a month as a facial mask--I apply a generous amount to face and neck, sit back and relax for twenty minutes, then rinse off with tepid water. It acts like a mini-facelift! If I have an event to attend, I'll use it first, before getting ready. Trust me: this is one cream you should purchase!
Most Helpful Critical Review Don't get the hype
Applied for the first time thismorning as a make up primer instead of my usual smashbox photofinish. My skin wasn't as smooth and my powder didn't stay on as long. Is everyone else using this with a liquid foundation? I didn't see a difference in my skin at all either.
I have semi-oily skin, larger pores, and olive undertones. Didn't do much.

This Balm is the Bomb
ClarinsUSA from Midwest
I have been using Beauty Flash Balm for at least 15 years and it doesn't disappoint. It works exactly as described - brightens, tightens, and gives an overall beautiful lift in a flash - I love this stuff!!!
Outstanding All Inclusive Product
Rudystat from Linwood, NJ
Beauty Flash Balm - a terrific moisturizer, smoother, pore reducer, primer, and improver of skin appearance and texture with regular use. Small pea shaped amount does a world of good. Terrific as well for mature skin.
My skin glows!
JennFinn from Philadelphia
I can't stop myself from using Beauty Flash balm! It gives my skin a perfect glow whether I wear it by itself or under my makes up. It's perfect!
HJD1 from Orlando, FL
This gives me a soft, dewy glow that leaves my skin hydrated and soft even after I remove my makeup. I also love it on "no makeup" days. It tones down any redness & somewhat minimizes my pores. My foundation also goes on smoother.
Smooth, light and firming.

I love this product as a primer/moisturizer under my foundation. I have used it for several years
Great morning or night
Mom22 from ChicGo, il
This is a staple product- great overall primer in the morning or add on in the evening. Always makes my skin so smooth
This is a game changer
Irena79 from Atlanta
I tried a sample first and then got hooked. People told me that my face is glowing or looks fresher than usual or that I look like I got a bit of sun. It gives this peachy healthy glow and I love it. I don't use foundation. I believe in a healthy skin rather than cover imperfections so this is the only thing I use. Anyway, when I use it, I usually get compliments. It's truly amazing.

I have used this product for several years. It gives my skin a smoother appearance under my foundation. I have a larger tube at home and use the smaller gift sizes for travel.
Helps tired new mom skin
Vicki44 from Alexandria VA
As a new mom I have zero time to take care of my skin yet with lack of sleep my skin really needs some TLC... the Flash Balm is the perfect solution. It moisturizes and gives me a dewy complexion. This is a secret ingredient I will definitely pass down to my daughter.

I have been using Clarins products for years and this miracle balm is a must have especially before a photo shoot or a special event. It makes my skin look younger and radiant and as we age we need that extra help! Thank you for this gem!
Tinkerbell from Sacramento area
I love this! It makes a great primer, this was recommended for me by a make up artist. I'm almost out of my second purchase .
Love this—my everyday moisturizer.
Katileigh from New York
I have used this for years. At first I used it occasionally, but then it became clear that my skin looked better and felt better every time I used it. So now I use it every day. Happily.
Beauty Flash Balm is a must have for any routine.
MiaAnne from Cornwall, NY
Received it initially as a sample and the product was very impressive. I use it in addition to my daily moisturizer and it adds an extra umpf to my skin for the day. Radiant, dewy, plumped and firm. Plus an amazing smell.
Great texture and fresh effect
gdpdp from nyc
I discovered this product as a sample and after that. I bought this several times over the last few years. Gives an instant pick me up feel without being sticky or heavy on the skin.
ncMoe from Georgia
Like a primer and mask in one. I would always put this on before my makeup. It's super refreshing and has a light, pleasant smell that doesn't irritate my skin. Love it!

I've been using the beauty flash balm for four years and I refuse to use anything else for primer, moisturizer, or face masks! My skin has tightened and glows!

Lili Kriner from Moreno Valley, CA
I love this product since day 1! When I wash my face in the morning with the orange scrub, then I combine this and the pire control, it makes my skin glow. I use to have excessive oily skin before. Ever since I started using this, the oils in my skin minimize. Also, my skin has cleared up so much after using these products. I totally recommend everything Clarins!!
Lou from Boston
This product did have an effect on the appearance of my face. It looked brighter and energize. But with long term use my face would get itchy and irritated. Particularly in sunny times (with mineral sunscreen). I think Clarins should remove all unnecessary scents, natural and synthetic fragrance. For consumer affinity's and scent obsession, why not scent the packaging and bottle?
A staple for me for 10+ years
Cherper from Pittsburgh, PA
After cleansing, if I am going out, I put a dab of flash balm, a dab of foundation and 5 drops of Clarins Energy Booster into the palm of my hand, mix together with both hands, and apply to my face. In summer, I use the Golden Glow Booster instead of Energy and mix well. Love the dewy look and feel. Not going out, I just use the flash balm alone. I find that I do not need a daily moisturizer with the flash balm and use moisturizer only at night. Hope Clarins never stops making this product.
Wakes me up!
Amy L from Des Moines, IA
I use this in the morning when I get up to work out. I love the smell, and it helps wake me up and feels good on my face. I also use during the day if I'm just feeling blah and want to freshen up my face. I rub it between my hands and pat it on my face.
