Clarins Gentle Refiner Exfoliating Cream With Microbeads

Name: Clarins 클라란스 Gentle Refiner Exfoliating Cream 젠틀 리파이너 엑스폴리에이팅 크림
Price: RM 143.10 for 50 ml
Made in: France

In a moment of weakness, I rang in a purchase at the Clarins stand before I boarded my flight. I tend to lose my marbles over skincare products as well as French brands (a deadly double combination)...

Suitable for all skin types aside from the extremely sensitive, Gentle Refiner Exfoliating Cream contains soothing Mimosa Extract and is free of parabens. I apply it to cleansed, damp skin in a light, circular motion. The minuscule, evenly sized beads are amazing – they don't feel abrasive yet somehow they manage to slough off my dead skin cells. My skin after rinsing is brilliantly smooth. Better yet, the effect lasts a few days!

At RM 143.10, it is admittedly expensive, but not shockingly so. Considering this day and age, I am sure you have come across exfoliators with price tags that could vie with rocket fuel? Seeing as a pea sized amount is used each time, this 50 ml tube may even work out to be a great value product overall!

Do you use physical exfoliators or are you a chemical convert?

I like the cream texture. it looks like the beads not over the top that would irritate your skin! thanks for sharing!

I've been hearing a lot of good things with Clarins. It's also pricey here in our country but I love creamy and microbeads for exfoliators. Thanks for the paraben free product too. I have a friend who is really picky with this, I'll let her know! Thanks for your review! :)
