Skin Care Overhaul

What I Posted;

Time for a treat this weekend, taking a trip to the Clarins counter for a skin care regime overhaul. Bliss!

What really happened;

My skin care regime has taken a bit of a knock since buying my first flat last year. Needing to make my money go further I decided to cut back on my beloved Clarins beauty products and try some cheaper alternatives.  I haven't been happy with my skin since and just couldn't find anything as good. I made the decision I was going back to Clarins after months apart.
I made a bright eyed return to the Clarins counter in my local Debenhams, ready to splash out on the tighteners and moisturisers that would give me an eternally youthful complexion.

It didn't start well when 'Clarins Carol' gasped and went straight to the first signs of ageing drawer.  I stood shell shocked as she told me off and grimaced at my dry skin.  I looked at the floor when she chastised me and said the "Pure and Radiant Mask won't work in my cupboard will it."
"No Carol it won't"
After being quizzed on my application method of various items (which was wrong - pat don't rub), I left with a bag of urgently needed items and a list of must use products before ever leaving the house again. Feeling like a bulldozer had hit me I cut my shopping trip short and took myself and my newly acquired complexion anxieties back home to cleanse, cleanse, cleanse wondering if Carol might possibly hate me.

Some of the products I needed;
Cleansing Milk with Alpine Herbs
Toning Lotion with Camomile
Gentle Refiner Exfoliating Cream with Microbeads
Pure and Radiant Mask
HydraQuench Cream Mask
Extra-Firming Eye Lift Perfecting Serum
Multi-Active Day Early Wrinkle Correction Cream
Multi-Active Night Youth Recovery Cream

The horror.

I've been known to come away from Clarins counters with a bag of a treats and a possible new best friend. This visit has left me moderately traumatised.

I'm going to the bathroom now, I may be some time. Hope you enjoyed reading x
