Clarins HydraQuench Cream and Moisture Replenishing Lip Balm

I lather my face in a good moisturiser every morning and night, and I believe this is my secret for maintaining spot-free skin. It's a common misconception that you have to dry out your face to banish the blemish, when often a daily regime of moisturising goodness could work wonders.

The important part is to ensure your moisturiser is tailored to your skin. Do you have dry skin? Combination? Oily? There's even a moisturiser to reduce unwanted shine and limit excess oils. 

Clarins HydraQuench Cream

I use Clarins HydraQuench during the colder months for dry/normal skin. It soaks in really fast and smells so clean and fresh, it reminds me of those cucumber wipes in the green packet from Boots.

In the winter I possibly have the most chap-prone lips in the Universe, so I've been trialling the lip balm from the same 'HydraQuench' range to try and revitalise them. It has a consistency similar to the Elizabeth Arden 8-Hour Lip Balm, thick and gel-like, and it has a gorgeous taste that's like Cherry Drop sweets. With essential rose wax and shea butter, it's like a little tube of lip TLC. I also like the look of it on the lip, it's got a pretty pink sheen that's nice and glossy without being sticky.
