The Clarins Eau Ressourçante Rebalancing Fragrance takes you to a new fragrant universe...one of serenity, well-being and relaxation. More than a fragrance - it's a skin treatment too. A long-lasting woody-floral which helps to release tension, clear and calm the mind and restore balance. Envelop yourself in freshness and serenity, and rediscover harmony and energy. Apply as a spray over the whole body, at any time of the day. Longan stimulates Sarsaparilla relaxes and moisturises Essential oils of Basil, Iris, Cedar and Benzoin scent, soothe and enhance a feeling of relaxation Robinia soothes and softens

I purchased as an after Christmas treat to myself. It's very easy to spritz, light and appealing. My usual perfumes are heavier and quite a bit more expensive, so I can be extravagant with this spray.
If anything the fragrance is lighter and less long lasting than the free sample of body lotion which tempted me to buy this, but I can't see the same lotion in a tube around at the moment only the cream in a tub. I would definitely buy the lotion if I could find it.

 Wonder Length Mascara
Wonder Length Mascara
Get long, silky lashes with the Clarins Wonder Length Mascara. Highly pigmented colour, perfect separation, beautiful curvature and endless lashes are just one sweep of mascara away. A no smudging, no flaking formula that goes the distance. Forget the false lash effect; this is a true lash effect - incredibly long, thick and shiny lashes that are all yours. Apply right from the roots to the very tips of lashes. For maximum length and curl, apply a second layer for more intense eyes. Polymers form a very thin, even film that lengthens lashes quickly and curves them gently Natural anti-dehydrating agents make lashes more supple, shiny, more beautiful along their entire length Carnauba wax reinforces the adherence of the film for non-stop wear

Too early yet to say about the longevity of the mascara before it either starts clumping in the container or drying out, but for longevity of wear I have no complaints. I have to say I find mascara one of the most difficult makeup items to buy and regularly change brands either because I'm not happy with the application or with the life of the product.
I particularly like this long and very thin wand which helps me apply my mascara cleanly and effectively and the staying power during the day is good with no lumps, under eye smudging or flaking. It's also good for building up coats without clumping, although I very rarely apply more than two coats.
I'm not sure I'd go so far as to say the effect is either the longest or silkiest lashes ever, but after using eyelash curlers, which I always do, I'm pleased with the end result and happy with my purchase.
Next time I may choose something different, but that's simply because I'm still searching for that best mascara in the world ever.

Unlike waxy sticks, it penetrates quickly to provide instant relief. This balm offers broad-spectrum sun protection with an SPF 25 and also guards against windburn and temperature extremes. Contains Lemon and Chamomile to refresh and calm.

I've been looking for a good lip balm for quite a long time and now I've found it.
After using the balm for a week my winter chapped lips are in much better condition and I'm not experiencing the daily dryness that leads to chapping in the first place, so I think Intense Therapy is a good name.
I like the squeeze tube application and the fragrance is very pleasant as it's light and not at all overpowering.
One thing to note, there's a very slight tingling sensation in the way of a minor lip plumper, which is probably from the lemon. Like I say, it is very slight, so I was fine with that but it's perhaps worth bearing in mind if you have sensitive skin.
