If you’re a fan of the best-selling Beauty Flash Balm, then there’s a lot of reason to get excited. Not only has the iconic balm been reformulated for 2022, but it’s now got a partner: Clarins Beauty Flash Peel. This overnight exfoliator completes the two-step routine for ultimate skin radiance.
The new-for-2022 facial peel works to smooth and refine your complex whilst exfoliating your complexion to take skin luminosity to new heights. Read on to find out all about the Beauty Flash Balm’s new right-hand man…
The Most Important Thing About The Clarins Beauty Flash Peel Is…
The Beauty Flash Peel is the new quick, convenient and effective way to renew your skin at home. It takes the work of the balm one step further to promote skin radiance even further, all while addressing uneven skin tone and visible wrinkles.
But what did those who put it to the test think about it?
• 93% of women noticed their skin looked renewed after 14 days’ use.
• 91% of women said their complexion was revived after 28 days’ use.
What Skin Type Is It For?
Like the face balm, Clarins’ peel is suitable for normal, oily, combination or dry skin types, and it’s especially beneficial for those who struggle with a dull, lacklustre complexion. Sensitive skin types need to be extra careful when using peels as they can sometimes be too harsh on your skin and cause irritation, so we wouldn’t recommend this if your skin is sensitive.
You Will Love This If…
If you love the original Beauty Flash Balm, then the peel will be right up your street; in fact, when the peel is used alongside the balm, natural radiance returns to the skin in just one week.
And of course, if you love a Clarins spa treatment, then you’ll adore the peel; it takes your routine up a notch by offering an expert resurfacing treatment so you can treat yourself to an at-home facial.
Beauty Flash Peel contains two acids, a 5.7% dose of glycolic and a 0.5% dose of salicylic acid, which work together to remove dead skin cells on the surface of the skin (which otherwise leave your complexion looking dull and lacklustre) whilst helping to purify pores to target skin imperfections.
You’ll also notice a few key actives from the balm are also featured here: organic acerola seed extract, organic oat sugars and organic aloe vera are joined by nopal extract to energise, renew, hydrate and tighten your skin for a smooth, radiant finish.
What Does It Feel Like?
Clarins Beauty Flash Peel has a refreshing gel texture that glides over your skin easily when you use Clarins’ in-build brush applicator. Leave a thin layer on for five to ten minutes before applying your usual night-cream face cream, you’ll notice that it sinks into your skin very easily.
What Does It Smell Like?
When you squirt out the product, the peel has an ever-so-subtle scent that’s clean and almost a touch medicinal, but you can’t notice it when it’s on your skin.
How Do You Use The Product?
Use the Clarins Beauty Flash Peel two or three times a week by applying a thin layer to cleansed skin, taking care to avoid the eye area. Leave it to work for five to ten minutes before applying your night cream.
It’s always important to wear high broad-spectrum sun protection in the day-time when using this product as it contains acids that may increase your skin’s sensitivity to the sun.
Of course, you can support all of the hard work of the peel by using the iconic Beauty Flash Balm too. The balm can be used as a day treatment; simply smooth a thin layer onto a cleansed face, neck and decollete after your face cream. If you’re using it as a makeup base, you’d do the same again by applying a thin layer to your skin at the end of your routine and before applying base product, or you can get creative and mix it in directly with your liquid foundation for a glowy finish. To use the balm as a face mask, apply a thin layer to your skin two or three times a week. Leave on for 10 minutes before removing any excess with water. Then, apply your lotion with cotton pads and pat dry.
What’s Special About The Design?
Clarins’ professional brush applicator ensures that you get exactly the right amount of product to ensure optimal exfoliation without risking your skin’s health. The brush’s silky-soft bristles ensure a smooth, comfortable application to mimic that spa-like experience at head as it glides over your slide to lift away dead skin cells in one swift motion. The brush is lockable too.
