My First Exclusive Clarins SkinTime 30 Session

.

Last Saturday, I was glad to be invited to the exclusive Clarins 3-hour special event @ Tangs Orchard and at the same time to experience my first Clarins SkinTime 30 session.

In this one-to-one complimentary SkinTime 30 session, a Clarins beauty specialist will be assigned to do a skin analysis on my skin, I will learn the skincare regime using Clarins products, the correct method to apply different skincare products and most importantly to learn the secrets to achieve a V-shape facial contours using the Auto Lifting® method. Plus, a free supply of samples customized to my skin after the session. Clarins is the only brand in Singapore to do this! And all is free of charge!

You can also opt for the Skintime 15 which means a 15-minute session on your forearm to test the products.

I realized I have this stupid reindeer red nose before the session started. :(

.

So here’s my ‘BEFORE’ photo. Yes, I’m going to remove my makeup and review my naked face.

.

Me, Sharon and 3 beauty bloggers were experiencing the SkinTime 30 at the same time.

.

Before the session started, the beauty specialist will use one of these treatment fragrances to ‘cleanse’ their hands.

.

My first product : Instant Eye Make-up Remover. Contains oil and water that effectively help to remove stubborn makeup and it is very suitable for sensitive eyes.

The Clarins Specialist pressed 2 cotton pads that were soaked with Instant Eye Make-up Remover and covered each soaked pad on each of my eyes. By gently pressing on the eye areas for about 10-20 seconds will help to melt the makeup and thereby allow easy removal of the makeup later.

Clarins believes not to rub the delicate eye areas with the cotton pads as this will cause more fine lines and wrinkles on the delicate eye areas. Oops! No more rough hands k!

.

My second product : One-Step Facial Cleanser. This 3-in-1 cleanser is actually a makeup remover, cleanser cum toner.

After removing the makeup on the eye areas, the beauty specialist cleansed the rest of my face using the One-Step Facial Cleanser.

What makes the skin firm, supple and youthful?

Do you know what are the 3 essential major components that require in the dermis layer in order to achieve a youthful looking skin? Well they are collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid.

Collagen, an important protein which covers more than 70% of our skin, is a major component of the dermis that helps the function of many tissues and organs. Elastin is a special type of collagen that gives your skin elasticity and hyaluronic acid surrounds and supports the collagen. Hyaluronic acid also helps maintain the moisture content of the dermis and epidermis.

Comprising a synergistic blend of Micro-Collagen Peptides, botanical Bio-Cell Activator (BCA) Complex and Hyaluronic Acid, Tsubaki Perfect Beauty Drink replenishes and stimulates natural collagen formation, while repairing skin damage for youthful skin.

.

Vichy Thermal Spa Water is the common core ingredient across Normaderm product line.

These are the 3 great cleansing products under Normaderm range.

Purifying Cleansing Gel, a ultra-fresh gel, is formulated with double purifying and anti-irritant action that cleanses and purifies pores while removing impurities. Skin feels refreshed and shine is effectively controlled.

.

Daily Exfoliating Cleansing Gel contains micro-particles that help unblock the pores, smooth out skin irregularities and refine skin texture. The skin is clean, clear and pure day after day.
