Clarins Pop Up Beauty Boutique

Exciting news beauty babes!

Clarins, the French plant based beauty brand has opened a Clarins Pop-up Beauty Boutique at the Forum Shops at Caesars and it’s pretty dang amazing.

For those of you that aren’t familiar with the brand, Clarins Laboratories are considered pioneers in the fields of plant science and technology. From 100% Pure Plant Oils, Double Serum, skincare innovations for face and body—to make-up, men’s care and treatment fragrances—Clarins scientists have created groundbreaking formulas that are unrivaled in the cosmetics industry.

Last week I was invited to a sneak peek of this botanical wonderland where I learned about the Clarins method for applying skincare products, sniffed my way through fantastic essential oils, experienced a regenerating mini spa treatment and left with a full beauty arsenal ready to combat the dry summer heat.

When you first walk in the door of the Clarins Pop-Up Beauty Boutique you are greeted by this breathtaking chandelier made from their cult classic Double Serum product.  (This product is such a beauty game-changer it really does deserve it’s own chandelier but more on that later).

The Pop-up beauty boutique features the full range of Clarins skincare and beauty products as well as an amazing “scent bar” where you can sniff your way through all of Clarins amazing essential oils (made from 100% pure plant extracts) to find just the right one.  I’m head over heels for Bitter Orange.

During my treatment I discovered a sexy trio of beauty must haves: Super Restorative Total Eye Concentrate, Double Serum and Super Restorative Day (Moisturizer).

These three products deliver a huge power packed infusion of goodness to dry, dehydrated and.. ahem.. aging skin.

Clarins Super Restorative Total Eye Concentrate is  Clarins’ all-in-one, anti-aging eye treatment acts on all visible signs of skin-aging—from temple to temple: deep wrinkles, crow’s feet, puffiness and dark circles. I swear this stuff instantly de-puffs eyes and smooths out those fine lines like a boss.

Clarins Double Serum is a cult-favorite and #1 seller, but they recently updated the formula with Tumeric-extract. The tumeric-extract is incredible for the skin and basically everything in the body! And I swear, the stuff WORKS.  Like REALLY REALLY works.  If you are only going to buy one new skincare product this summer this is it! After just a few warm, place, presses (the method that Clarins recommends you apply products- have them show you during your treatment.  It’s a game-changer) my skin was transformed. The serum is great for ALL skin types, improves firmness and elasticity as well as dullness and texture and contains NO parabens sulfates, or phthalates in the ingredients. A really cool feature is that there are two two dispense options, a large drop and a small drop. Use the small drop on days you don’t feel as dry or for me, here in dry hot Vegas all summer long, I’ll be dispensing out of the large drop!

Clarins Super Restorative Day (Moisturizer) is an intensive replenishing cream helps visibly lift, tone and restore elasticity to mature skin weakened by hormonal changes linked to the aging process. Delivers unrivaled anti-aging power with Clarins’ exclusive Harungana Leaf—the “healing” tree from Madagascar. This powerful plant extract helps replenish the skin and fights against skin slackening— helping to restore the youthful appearance you once knew. I swear it felt like my skin drank a huge glass of water after application.  It was brighter, baby soft and smooth which made makeup application a dream!

I also stocked up on a ton of makeup- hello greatest mascara of all time- but more on that in another post.

The Clarins Beauty Pop-Up will be located at the Forum Shops at Caesars until December 31, 2018.

Chill Out with Evian Facial Spray

I am a HUGE fan of hydration mists during the summer, and my go-to is Evian Mineral Water Facial Spray it’s the perfect way to quickly rehydrate your parched skin and makes an awesome makeup setting spray.

“Evian® Mineral Water Spray is imported from a unique underground water source at the base of the French Alps. Propelled under high pressure by nitrogen (80% of the air we breathe is nitrogen, 20% oxygen), the ultrafine pure, natural mist allows the skin to absorb a unique balance of beneficial minerals along with the water. No other water contains the same balance of magnesium, calcium and phosphorous which explains Evian’s superb compatibility with facial skin. A heavy soaking morning and evening removes all traces of cleansers and harmful hard tap water often containing fluoride and chlorine. Evian® Mineral Water Spray helps to enhance the performance of all other skincare products by hydrating the skin prior to the use of moisturizers. It relieves dry, irritated skin caused by high altitude and poor air quality during air travel, which is why many flight attendants wouldn’t be without it. A light spray of Evian® ‘sets’ makeup by blending it with skin while highlighting color so it can be used all through the day.”

Ok I know what you are thinking “Christie wants us to spray water on our face, so what”.  Well this Evian Facial Spray isn’t just a splash of water, each one second spray releases several million micro-droplets infused with minerals to hydrate and instantly refresh your skin. Its important to me to know that this facial spray is propelled by safe nitrogen, creating a unique and exquisite fine mist and it feels amazing.

It is an instant refreshing boost you can use any time of day.  At the start of the day use it to enhance and set your foundation. The fine mist evens out your complexion and creates a completely natural look. Throughout the day, keep the spray in your bag for a pick-me up after running errands, a day by the pool or even a stressful meeting! I like to keep mine on ice by the pool for a cool refreshing burst.
