Review: Clarins Daily Energizer Cream

Hello everyone! 

Today, I decided to do something a little different. I wanted to share with you my favourite moisturiser of all time. I have suffered from dry skin and I needed a moisturiser that would not make my skin flaky and dry. 
I was walking around John Lewis one day, when I decided it was time I got a moisturiser that was not a drug-store brand. I went to Bobbi Brown, Clinique and a couple of other stalls before I settled for Clarins, and that was the best choice ever. 
The lady at the counter recommended the Daily Energizer Cream. 
It is targeted at younger skins, so it's not harsh like other moisturisers. 


Combination of vitamin C, alchemilla and turmeric extracts: energizes skin and helps reduce minor imperfections.

Ginkgo biloba : boosts microcirculation and enhances skin radiance

Moisturisers for teens

Packaging: The cream comes in this beautiful orange pot that is easy to handle and opening and closing it is not an issue. 
I usually prefer squeeze bottles for moisturisers, but I can't complain about this. 

Smell: This product smells amazing. Sweet yet subtle and fades away, so it won't irritate you all day. It is not too overwhelming, but it is enough to give you that luxury sensation once you open the jar. 

moisturiser for dry skin

- Light. It is incredibly moisturising, but it doesn't feel like you're rubbing butter onto your face.
- Won't leave skin oily/greasy- your face will feel softer than ever.
- Hydrating, You won't experience that tight feeling you get when your skin is dry. 
- Radiating. Just after applying it, you'll notice a difference in your skin's radiance. 
- Reduced spots. I don't know if it just me, but after using this product for a while, My old scars and current spots have reduced significantly. 

- Small pot. Yes, this product is value for money, but having gone from £5 moisturisers that last months, to this £20-something moisturiser that only lasts a month, it's a big change for my wallet. But it is completely worth it. 
- Lack of SPF. I do have dark skin, and some people think that darker skin means no need for sun protection and that couldn't be further from the truth. I like to stay protected from the sun (even in sunless England!), so I think having some SPF in this moisturiser would be the cherry on top.
- Less effective in winter. I found that in harsher weather, when its cold and bitter, my skin tends to become a lot dryer. This either meant re-applying this moisturiser or using a thicker moisturiser. I'd say this is more suitable for warmer months, but can do in winter too. 

cream for teens

I recommend this for any teens out there looking for a light moisturiser that can reduce spots and keep skin flake-free, without making you look all shiny and gross. 
It is a bit pricey, but worth every penny. 
Use this in the morning, and you'll be good to go!
