Clarins Beauty Flash Balm review

What Clarins says: http://www.clarinsusa.com/Beauty-Flash-Balm/C010405004,en_US,pd.html&cgid=Topsellers_Face&start=1

What I say:  Very mixed feelings… given it’s one of the most popular beauty products ever! Why? Let’s see:

  • it does tighten the skin a bit (especially when used as a mask left overnight)
  • it might even brighten it a bit too, but…
  • the application is awful – no matter how little you use, it still peels off  like crazy 
  • peeling off makes it useless during the day – if you use it under makeup it messes it up completely (everything peels off the moment you touch your face!)

Would I repurchase? Definitely not. 

Girls and boys, does anyone have a similar experience with this product or is it just my skin? 🙂
