Review of the Clarins lotus face treatment oil


20130824-113134.jpg
I am half way through my second bottle of the Clarins double serum so I decided to pick up the Clarins lotus face treatment oil (for oily or combination skin) at the Changi DFS so that I can use them interchangeably.  It was about $107 $60 (update – thank you @iceyuwen) if I remembered correctly (not hundred percent sure of the price).

I picked this up because it is Clarins, my favorite skincare brand.  I love the smell of it and the things that it proclaimed to achieve.

Method of use
For use in the evening on its own or before regular evening skin care.  Apply thoroughly cleansed skin still dampened with Clarins Toning Lotion (I need to buy this). Warm a few drops of lotus oil in the palms of the hands and apply with gentle press and release movements (the infamous Clarins way of applying goodies on your face).  Concentrate on the forehead (ya those lines up there are getting more obvious), nose and chin.  AVOID the eye contour area (which I always forget).

Ingredients
Corylusavellana (Hazel) seed oil | Pelagonium graveolens flower oil | Parfum/Fragrance | Rosmarinus officinalis (Rosemary) leaf oil | Helianthus annuus (Sunflower) seed oil | Anthemis nobilis flower oil | Salvia sclarea (Clary) oil | Nelumbium speciosum flower extract | Tocopherol | Cirtonellol | Linalool | Geraniol | Limonene | Citral | Coumarin | Benzyl Benzoate

Extract from the packaging
… to purify, balance and deliver long lasting beauty to combination skin prone to oiliness  Formulated with essential oils of rosemary, camomile and geranium and lotus extract, this fine, lightweight oil is immediately absorbed to tighten pores, refine skin and brighten the complexion to leave it looking creamy soft.

I have used it for about a week and I agree that the oil is absorbed into the skin very fast.  And the scent is simply amazing which lasted for a good 10 minutes before it faded away.  What I hope this product will achieve is to be able to balance the oil sebum production and to tighten the pores especially those on the cheeks.  If it does, this bottle is definitely worth the money.
