Shiny face be gone!
Why yes it is possible, even in summer. Lotus face treatment oil from Clarins is something I’ve been using for over 6 months and though it sounds crazy to use oil to fight oil, but it indeed does work! I love the lab like glass bottle, the eye drop like applicator and the light golden oil inside, such a pretty colour. I honestly have no idea how it work, maybe it’s the pure plant extracts? Who knows, it works, so who cares!
How did I find this? Hmm… funny story. I loved seeing the gorgeous Clarins sisters in all the fashion week pics, so I thought I’d take a look at Clarins products. I mean Clarins is an old brand, it doesn’t feel fresh and it’s definitely not the skin care counter I gravitate to in a department store, so I don’t know much about their range. I had the gorgeous Clarins sisters in mind while browsing the Clarins site, I’m a secret nerd that loves to read the back of packagings, cereal, shampoo, not so much chocolate (better off not knowing!), so I pretty much read every single product’s description on the site. That’s how I came across the lotus oil, it sounded too good to be true, but I thought, what the heck, nothing else has worked, so let’s give it a go.
It works. You use it 2-3 times a week, before bed and after you’ve cleansed your face. Put a tiny splash of toner on your palm, then 2-3 drops of lotus oil, combine in your palms and apply on your face, concentrating on the T zone. All of that is kind of like a guideline, I only needed to use lotus oil once every 2 weeks during winter, now summer’s here, I’m definitely moving to 2 times a week. Your face does look pretty oily right after you apply the mix, so that’s why it’s best to do this before bed and let the oil do its thing overnight, I also find it’s best to just wash your face with water and nothing else the next morning.
If you suffer from shiny face like me, definitely give this a go.
PS. My favourite toner is from Aesop‘s parsley seed range.
PPS. The bottle of lotus oil will probably last you for like 5 years, maybe more.
