Clarins True Radiance Foundation – A Review

My Local Pharmacy just launched a Clarins stand and on they’re opening day they had 20% off. I’ve always enjoyed Clarins as a brand. One of my favourite summer foundation’s is the BB Detox Fluid. So I wanted to try a heavier winter foundation so I picked this one up.

Claims: A light-weight, moisturising foundation which illuminates and evens skin for a radiant complexion. For all skin types: A unique formula that combines the power of plants and science to counteract the main causes of dullness. The formula contains moringa seed extract to help skin combat external pollutants and organic marsh samphire extract to keep skin hydrated, smooth and supple.

The packaging is lovely. A gorgeous glass bottle with a pump. The colour isn’t perhaps the best for me, it’s a tad yellow toned. There is a slight scent to this but it’s not offensive.

Coverage with this was a strong medium. Definitely a dewy, illuminating finish. I made the mistake the first day of using an illuminating primer that I usually wear underneath other foundations. Big mistake! I looked like an oil slick. Even after powdering I was seriously shiny. So the next day I left it out & was much more pleased with the finish.

After about 8 hours I powdered my T-Zone and the foundation took it well. No cake face & kept the glow from within look to it.

The more time that this sits on the skin the better it looks. I’m happy with this. Powder products sit nicely on top of it. It wouldn’t be good for a work day as I feel it would be too glowy and not last the full 12 hours but it’s perfect for the weekend when I want to look fresh & youthful which this accomplishes.

Have you tried this? Or maybe others from the range? Anything else from the brand you’d recommend trying out?
