Clarins Gentle Exfoliator Brightening Toner

I figured the best way to inaugurate this blog would be by telling you about a product that has brought me a lot of joy in the last few months: Clarins Gentle Exfoliator Brightening Toner. This product has made such a huge difference in my skin, it keeps it smooth, prevents breakouts and fades any red marks leftover by spots in about a week. It’s amazing!!

The combination of tamarind fruit acids white nettle extract in this clear toner gently exfoliate while removing impurities from the skin, leaving it supple and refreshed.

This post by Caroline Hirons is the reason I decided to try it and to use both morning and night as a daily toner. I had never used and acid based exfoliator and was a bit nervous about using but it is really gentle. It does not sting or make my skin red, which seem to be common effects of products containing acids. Since this does contain an AHA (glycolic acid) Clarins recommends using sunscreen as this can make your skin a bit sun sensitive.  I did not experience any sensitivity, but then again I use sunscreen everyday (as we all should really).  

I think the best way to sum up my thoughts on this product is: where has this been all my life!

You can get the Clarins Gentle Exfoliator Brightening Toner from any Clarins counter or online for 34$.

What I Love...

I've been toying with the idea of starting a blog for about a year now, but I never found the courage to do it.
Would people read it? Would they like what they read?
All those questions held me back and made me question whether or not my voice could have a positive impact on people.

Today I realised that I should really to this for me, writting about things I love makes me appreciate them even more and THAT brings me happiness!

The idea behind this blog is for me to talk about  what I love and hopefully help you discover new things. I wish to share what makes me happy in the hope that it can bring you some happiness too.
You can expect posts on a variety of things, from skincare to TV shows and books. I don't want this blog to be defined by a specific category, because I wish to have the freedom to explore all the things I love.

I would love nothing more than for you to discover new things through this blog, because there is no better feeling than knowing you have brought happiness to other people.
