The weather may not be quite reliable enough yet to completely shed the winter threads, but if you need an injection of Summer now, you won’t go wrong with the fabulous new Eau des Jardins body care products from Clarins.
Complementing the treatment fragrance launched by Clarins in 2010, Eau des Jardins – a gorgeously uplifting summery scent that also moisturises and soothes skin (its one of my Spring/Summer staples), the Eau des Jardins Uplifting Shower Gel (£18/150ml) and Eau des Jardins Smoothing Body Cream (£28/200ml) can be used alone or along with the scent to ensure you feel invigorated all day long.
The gentle Uplifting Shower Gel (in a handy sized bottle for travel) contains Gypsophilia, renowned for its soap-free, natural cleansing abilities. Aloe Vera and Pro-Vitamin B5 soothe and hydrate the skin.
The Smoothing Body Cream is light but makes skin feel silky smooth – its lovely to apply. Deliciously fragranced, it contains three organic buds that elevate it way above your usual run-of-the-mill body lotion. Beech Bud extract improves skin hydration while Sorbier Bud extract boosts the skins natural radiance. Finally Blackcurrant Bud (known to have a high antioxidant content) soothes and comforts the skin. In all, it’d be ideal to apply after a day in the sun before going out on a warm evening.
Used together, the trio will leave your skin feeling smooth and soft and enveloped in a fresh, zesty aura. Three steps to feeling good whatever the weather. I defy you not to feel uplifted and refreshed after using these products.
The Eau des Jardins collection is available from Clarins counters nationwide and online now.
