Clarins Bright Plus Range+Giveaway

clarins bright plus range

I have mentioned a few times before, that I really enjoy Clarins skin-care. I love the Daily Energizer Cream that I like applying in the mornings, the Pure Melt Cleansing Gel and their Lovely Lip Balm is everything! Recently I got introduced to the Clarins Bright Plus Range, with which for the first time the French skin care brand did local consumer research on.Dark spots are a concern to most women, and now according to the researchย 96% of South African women agree that their complexion look brighter*!

clarins bright plus range

The whole of the Bright Plus range consists of 3 products- The Hydrating Day Lotion (that also contains an SPF20), The Intensive Brightening Smoothing Serum and The Brightening Repairing Night Cream. All 3 of these products are enriched with Raspberry, Sea Lily and Alchemilla extracts that are the ones that fight the dark spots.The Night Cream also contains extracts of Parsley and Chamomile, while the Day Lotion has White Tea extracts and Serum contains Oat Sugars in it, to help smooth the skin.

clarins bright plus

I got to try out the Brightening Repairing Night Cream, but then I also shared it with my mom, because she is the one who has dark spots problems and concerns. She has only been using it for 2 weeks, and already she says that she has noticed a visible improvement and her skin looks and feels lighter and more illuminated. We both also agree that the cream has a very lovely consistence, and applies like a dream onto your face. Plus it smells delicious, which is always a huge plus in my books. The cream is a little bit thick, but it absorbs into your skin quickly. However it is called a Night Cream for a reason, and I would suggest only applying it before bed time because the active ingredients in it work overnight and you wake up with a fresher looking skin.

To celebrate this great range launching, today I am giving away a R1800 hamper consisting of all the products to one of you guys! To enter leave a comment and tell us, what is the brightest thing in your life? It could be your family, your job or even your skin!:) The answer is up to you!

The competition will run until next week Thursday, after which I will get my mom to pick a winner. Good luck!

*Consumer test on 168 South African women โ€“ 4 weeks of usage routine (serum & day cream & night cream)

    The brightest thing in my life is to wake up every morning and say thank you to the Lord for another day and how good He is for me. I know, because He picked me up when I was at my lowest. Then another brightest thing, is my family. So proud of them.

    The Brightest thing for me everyday is the soothing voice of my sweetheart Mom. I could be having the worst day, but listening to the sound of her voice with wise words illuminates the darkest of days in the brightest of ways.

  • Reply Prettiful Blog July 3, 2015 at 10:12 am

    The brightest thing in my life would have to be my mom. She is so strong, and has been through so much in her life, but always manages to come out on top. Getting through infidelity, divorce, working full time while studying part time, all while raising my brother and I. We fight like cat and dog, and annoy eachother to death, but she is the brightest thing in my life.

  • Reply The Blessed Barrenness July 3, 2015 at 11:15 am

    How to choose just one? Because three come to mind, my mommy, my husband and my daughters because all of them are shining lights in my life. My mommy because she’s my mom and she just gets me. My husband because he’s my best friend.
    But if I had to choose just one, it would be my girls because they are my impossible dream come true, after 7 years of infertility and 7 miscarriages, I never thought I’d be so abundantly blessed, twice, via adoption.

  • Reply Falon Harris July 3, 2015 at 12:02 pm

    I am blessed beyond measures to have more than one thing that adds a brightness to my life. I have an incredibly supportive family that guide me and get me through all of lifes challenges. My mother adds so much light and love to my life, with her wisdom and support ive been able to become the independent person i am today. And as insignificant as animals may seem to some, I have a gorgeous little Toypom named Max, who brings so much happiness into my home. It’s impossible to have a bad day when hes around. Hes energy and love brightens my mood every day…

    The brightest thing in my life is seeing the smile on my sons face. Yes,he was diagnosed with Autism when he was 5 years old. Yes, he is a tad bit different from other kids out there. But his smile is so beautiful and so pure that it is bright enough to light up the night sky. He is my anchor and my inspiration and his little heart has inspired me to become a psychologist. My son who has a heart of gold has ignited a dormant passion deep within me and I pray that I can make milestones for children who think differently than others. People don’t realise that children are all like stars, we just have to know how to nurture them so that they can shine at their brightest!
