''Cleanse, hydrate and soothe your skin from top to toe with the Ginger Flower Body Wash by Sachajuan, which offers a gentle yet thorough cleanse while enveloping the skin in the uplifting, reviving aromas of bergamot and lemon.'' - Kate, Escentual Beauty Team   Why you'll love Sachajuan Body Wash - Ginger Flower: Suitable for all skin types. Effectively cleanses and moisturises the skin. Releases an uplifting, refreshing citrus scent. Easy-to-use supersize bottle with pump dispenser. Use Earth Silk Technology, a patented process that uses cultivated oats known to promote collagen production, calm irritation, soothe sensitivity and promote skin vitality. Vegan.   Why it's Escentual: At the heart of this formula lies Earth Silk Technology, a patented process that centres around cultivated oats called beta glucan. By penetrating the skin, these oats not only help to rejuvenate ageing skin, but also calm irritation for optimum comfort. But just because this formula is driven by science, don't be fooled into thinking that it isn't luxurious. It has a soft, silky lathering texture and a revitalising bergamot-lemon scent that is just what you need to feel fresh, awake and alert in the morning.   The best way to use it: Apply to damp skin and massage into skin until the body wash forms a lather. Rinse thoroughly.

The smell is exactly as described, citrusy with underlying hints of ginger - very delicate. The gel is thick & lathers well so a little goes a long way. As soon as my next 20% off offer comes through, I’m buying more.

I ordered this as an add on to get free postage. I’m a lip salve frequent user & have them in every pocket. On first use I noticed the creamy/oily texture which made my lips feel very moisturised. What I didn’t expect was how long an application would last. I find I don’t start hunting for a lip salve for a few hours, although I expect if using it as sun protection you need to apply it more often. You get a lot in a tube & it goes a long way so it’s great value as well as effective. I shall definitely be ordering more.

I’ve been using this product for many years now. Not only does it stop my face from burning I am convinced I have protected my skin from ageing through sun exposure - as much as possible, anyway. The smell is divine as with all Clarins products & I wouldn’t dream of holidaying without it.

I have dry & sometimes dehydrated skin but hate the feel of thick, heavy creams. When I opened the jar I was a little apprehensive as this cream was so very lightweight, but it does a really effective job a keeping my skin moisturised & comfortable throughout the day & I use a serum under it at night. So good I bought a 2nd jar before the offer ended.

Following menopause I noticed my lashes had become thin & sparse. I read the reviews for this product & decided to give it a try. After using it twice daily for 6 weeks my beauty therapist remarked I had more lashes & that they were thicker. Another 6 weeks have passed & they are definitely longer too. The serum is cooling around the eyes but I still use a specialist eye cream at night.

I've been using this cleanser on & off for some years as I like to change about. It cleanses my skin beautifully with that lovely rose smell & is so, so gentle on my dry skin. I think it is not quite as thick a consistency as it used to be but no matter, & getting the 400ml for the price of the 200ml, result!

The consistency is thick & there is no scent but it still absorbs into the skin & leaves it ultra moisturised, keeping my skin comfortable & soft for up to 24 hours. Probably not for everyday use unless your skin is very dry.

This shower gel has a lovely fresh scent & leaves my skin feeling comfortable & moisturised. The gel is quite runny & doesn't foam much so you need to use a lot of product on a shower mitt - very different to La Roche Posay. I can't imagine the 200 ml version lasting longer than a couple of weeks. So, lovely to use at home but wouldn't pack it for a holiday abroad.

 Clarins Extra-Firming Neck Cream 50ml
Clarins Extra-Firming Neck Cream 50ml
Plump and smooth the delicate skin of the neck and décolleté with the Clarins Extra-Firming Neck Anti-Wrinkle Rejuvenating Cream. The neck has fewer natural skin protectors and a thinner epidermis, dermis and hypodermic than the face, meaning that it is more prone to lines and loss of firmness. The Extra-Firming Neck Cream works to slow skin slackening and encourages a firmer, more supple neck, incorporating pioneering organic plant extracts of Green Banana and Lemon Thyme. Sunflower Auxins help to reinforce the action of this innovative Extra-Firming Complex by encouraging skin flexibility and resilience, while plumping Green Algae extract encourages the synthesis of moisturising hyaluronic acid. For an immediate tightening effect, Organic Oat Sugars firm the skin while Marshmallow Powder, composed of line-filling micropearls, optically reduces the appearance of fine lines. Apply both morning and night in sweeping motions from the chin down towards the décolleté.

I've tried several neck creams but all previous ones brought on tiny spots. This one works very well, a small dab covers my neck and like all Clarins product it is a pleasure to use. No tiny spots & a soft supple neck. Result!
