ClarinsMen Review

Clarins Men Review Banner

James Rebranded Signature

This week I have been asked to try out some of the ClarinsMen range. I was quite eager to do this as I regularly steal the girlfriend’s Clarins Gentle Exfoliating Facial Cleanser and like it a lot, much to her annoyance. After Movember’s shaving regime and the regular (and unusual for me) attack on my face with sharp implements, the chance to try something moisturising and cleansing is just what the doctor (in this case Emma) ordered.

Clarins Men Exfoliating Cleanser

We will begin with the ClarinsMen 2 in 1 Exfoliating Cleanser. I have used the Clarins Exfoliating Cleanser previously so was interested to see how the Men’s variant compared. The first thing to note is that the product itself is a thick cream and the exfoliating beads are clearly visible. There is no distinguishing smell accompanying the product, other than what you would expect from any other facial cleanser.

The beads come into play as soon as you begin to lather the product into your skin and you can feel them scrubbing away yesterday’s excess which leaves your skin ready for the day ahead. However, given that the beads are so obvious and you can definitely feel them on your skin, I would not recommend this product for men with ultra sensitive skin.

Clarins Men Super Moisture Balm Close

The Super Moisture Balm is next up on our ClarinsMen experience. The Balm is a silky cream which is slightly greenish in colour and, unlike the cleanser, has a fresh almost minty smell. It rubs into the skin easily, and you need a very small amount of time to rub it in.

Once applied the skin begins to feel refreshed and after a week’s use it certainly feels a little more supple, which I’m sure my skin thanks me for after nearly 30 years of neglect. The only side note I would add for this is that one full pump gives more product than is probably necessary so I would suggest half pumps to start with and go from there.

While I only got to try the two products from the range, they were both nice to use and left my skin feeling refreshed and more awake. I am unsure if I will switch away from my girlfriend’s Gentle Exfoliating Cleanser for the Men’s 2 in 1 – but that is in part because my bathroom is barely big enough to house the cleaning products we already possess!  This little trial has made me curious about the rest of the ClarinsMen range, so may have to try and twist someone’s arm to allow me to review the rest…

    Bought my hubby the Clairns Men super Moisture balm – as he is works nights out doors and his skin was drying in the cold winter nights – it is amazing and I would love to win this prize for him as he really deserves it, out at night patrolling, keeping our communities safe while we are tucked up in bed 🙂

  • Isabella Wu

    I love my normal clarins products. The gentle exfoliating cleanser and the regular foaming cleansers are well loved in my shower. Even my boyfriend uses them daily, without me reminding him of washing his face with a cleansing product. (we all know most men just wash their face with water -_-)
    Would love to win this set for him so he has his own tube. 🙂

    Men’s Exfoliating Cleanser – great to wake up the skin in the morning and get rid of the grime and grease

  • tracy

    I bought some of the Clarins Men Super Balm (that you have tested out) for my 17 year old son. He has very dry and often red, facial skin, but usually he will only use products that he thinks are more ‘Chemisty’ lol, like E45 and Eucerin, anyway, i convinced him to try the Super Balm (by showing him that it said ‘for men’) and i am pleased to say the difference is quite remarkable. His skin seems less red, it’s certainly much softer and the dryness has almost disappeared, he says his skin still feels ‘good’ after a full day on a Mechanics course, i think this product has all the benefits of a ‘heavy duty’ dry skin product, but in a far superior (and more classy) utilization.

    My hubbie ran out of his Clarins Line Control Eye Balm a few weeks ago and has to wait until Christmas for some more……and boy can you tell. His eye area looks like a burst sofa at the moment and is badly in need of TLC. We can but hope we win but either way he needs some new Clarins and soon.

  • Lucy Gameson

    My fiance loves the after shave soother as his skin is very sensitive post shaving!

  • My husband is working at his computer desk and with tv-screens more than 11 hours a day, so he’s particularly concerned with keeping his eye area moisturised and prevent+reduce new wrinkles, so he likes Clarins Anti Fatigue eye serum as well as Line-Control balm. He says, that he doesn’t believe much in the help of cosmetics, but with these two products his skin really appears to be smoother and healthier. Actually, we both love Clarins skincare line, and I’m personally crazy about their make-up range, but that’s another story 🙂
