Review: Clarins Lotus Face Treatment Oil

If you watched my Current Beauty Favourites video you will have seen me mention this lovely face treatment oil by Clarins for oily/combination skin. In the video I mentioned that I would have never thought to use an oil for my face, especially seeing as I have combination skin with an oily T-Zone, however when looking for a few new bits of skincare I happened to try a sample of this and loved it.
I have been patting this into my face and neck every night for a couple of months now and it really has worked wonders for my complexion, my red patches appear more balanced and my oily T-Zone is well under control. Considering I’m living in Dubai where the heat and humidity can really play havoc with my skin, this product has helped out ten fold in keeping oil production balanced, which of course means less of those nasty spots and blackheads, hurray!
As a side note, I just have to add that this oil smells amazing and I get that oh so lovely feeling of luxury when applying it. It’s very moisturising yet soaks into the skin a treat. At £32 this is a little pricey, however Clarins provide free samples of their products so I would definitely recommend giving this a try before you buy, which is exactly what I did. If like me you hadn’t previously thought of trying a treatment oil, you may well be pleasantly surprised!
