Clarins Extra Comfort Foundation in Ivory 103.

The newest offering from Clarins is part of the Extra Comfort range and is best described as an anti-ageing product that aims to replenish and illuminate the skin in one quick step. The packaging is more luxe than your typical Clarins foundation, and comes presented within a frosted glass screw top jar that looks great on your dressing table but is rather bulky, so not at all ideal for traveling or carrying around on a daily basis. But you could simply put a little scoop in a small plastic jar (with the spatula provided) & popping in your make up bag for when your on the move? I personally am happy with it being a jar you can use every last bit, so none is wasted, you also have more control over the amount of product you use daily. Its exclusive anti-ageing formula plumps, moisturises and nourishes the skin deep down with a combination of organic Argan oil and the Global Age-Defying Complex. The skin instantly feels suppler and more comfortable. Wrinkles and fine lines are smoothed. The complexion is left glowing with youth.

Organic Argan oil: nourishes the skin and leaves it feeling comfortable.Global Age-Defying Complex: leaves skin feeling supple, smoothes fine line and wrinkles.It boosts hydration, increases skin comfort and suppleness.Light Optimising + complex, a Clarins exclusive: instantly captures, diffuses and amplifies light. Fine lines and minor imperfections are visibly reduced. The complexion is left even-looking and radiant.Triple protection: fights free radicals, pollution and UV rays.

It offers up to 14 hours of hydration, The finish of Clarins Extra Comfort Foundation* is dewy with a slight glow that gives the impression of light within skin - much like a skin illuminator without any traces of glitter or shimmer, it really is a beautiful finish. It made my skin feel moisturised and plumped with the light literally bouncing off my skin. Despite being creamy it didn't sink into my fine lines and lasted all day with only a touch up of powder on T-Zone after about 7 hrs & I was good to go! I can see this being my go-to foundation in the colder months.
It is £35.00 available from
