Crazy Clarins Bargain!


 Welcome to my post about the Bargain of the Year 2013! I am very lucky that my wonderful friend Emma is beautician whom works in a salon that stocks and uses Clarins products, when she told me about a gift set of products for £10 I snapped her hand off and got one for myself and one for my sister as her Christmas Present. I was expecting a few little samples if I'm honest so when these turned up on my desk at work I had to double check she had charged me enough. I'm not sure whether or not these are exclusive to her particular salon, I can't find this set on the Clarins website, but I have sat and worked out what each product should have cost me and I hope that you'll be as amazed as I was!
 Clarins One-Step Gentle Exfoliating Cleanser 75ml - This should have been £20 for the full sized 125ml bottle, so this product alone is worth £12, I'm already £2 up on what I paid for the entire gift set! This is a great gentle cleanser that exfoliates your skin at the same time so it will be great for when I'm in a rush and my skin needs more than just a normal cleanser!
 Clarins Instant Smooth Perfecting Touch 4ml - You would pay a slightly eye watering £26 for the full 15ml version of this, making this worth £7 in the size that I have it in. Although I don't have any fine lines or wrinkles just yet it really did smooth out my eye area and make it a lot more of a smoother surface for me to apply my make up over.
 Clarins Tonic bath & Shower Concentrate 100ml - At £18 for 200ml this product on it's own is worth £9 however it's the only product that regrettably I haven't tried yet as I've just not had time for a nice long shower or bath but I shall keep you posted!
 Clarins Beauty Flash Balm 30ml - This product needs no introduction and when I saw this within the gift set I was instantly super excited for when I next needed to apply my make up. I love this as a base/primer and find that nothing else works like it. I've not used it as a mask in a very long time but if I remember correctly it did exactly as it said it would, left my skin tighter, brighter and just altogether better. The 50ml version of this is £29 (totally worth the price) however at just over half (30ml) this one is worth £17.50.
Clarins Hand and Nail Treatment Cream 50ml - £20 for the 100ml version makes this one worth £10, fairly price for a hand cream but it does leave you with instantly smooth and soft hands and doesn't leave me with any greasy residue! My hands always need a lot of TLC and this only heightens in the winter so I'm so grateful for having such a luxury hand cream in my handbag at this time of year!

Overall this set is worth a staggering £47.50 if you had bought all of these products individually for the size that they come in (£113 if you buy all of the full sized products!) So all in all I saved myself a whopping £37.50! (twice over as I bought two of these sets!) so I am currently a very very happy bunny and also hoping that my maths is correct!

What's been your bargain of 2013?
