Review: Clarins Instant Smooth Perfecting Touch

I received a trial size of Clarins Instant Smooth Perfecting Touch from recent tea party at Isetan KLCC sometime in October. Read here.

Instant Smooth Perfecting Touch is something which I wanted to try so much after reading from a makeup artist “must-have” from a magazine and unfortunately there’s no sample of this available. Fortunately for me, all attendees which RSVP for the tea party was given a trial size of this. I love it when Clarins change their free gift from time to time as I wanted to try other stuff.

The trial size I received is a cute miniature with only 4ml of content.

Clarins Instant Smooth Perfecting Touch 4ml

A short and sweet application instruction on the back of the jar.

The content is a smooth, non-sticky, waxy kind of cream. It’s odourless, light weighted with a lil hint of cooked yam colour. Yes it does look like cooked yam to me LOL.

The first time I used this I was WOW-ed by it. The first place I applied is onto my forehead line. I recently got this forehead line due to a bad bad method habit when I apply eye makeup :’(. Then I found out that I can also use this for large pores. So I tried it on my nose and once again I was amazed by the result.

Here’s some info from Clarins Malaysia website.

Beauty Benefits
Just like magic! This invisible ‘second skin’ base smoothes surface skin and minimizes the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines and dilated pores.

The perfect marriage of make-up and skin care for a really spectacular beauty effect. A magical melting, invisible texture which perfectly smoothes the skin by leaving an imperceptible veil over its surface. Wrinkles and fine lines are visually minimized to guarantee a flawless complexion.

Applications
-With the fingertips, apply a fine layer to the areas concerned (wrinkles, fine lines, dilated pores).
-Instant Smooth can be used alone or before make-up. In this case, wait a few minutes before applying foundation or powder.
-You can also mix Instant Smooth with your Clarins liquid foundation, for a guaranteed flawless complexion !

Active Ingredients
-Acacia Micro-Pearls sink into wrinkles and fine lines and increase in size as they absorb moisture naturally released by the skin, to smooth its surface. They also protect skin from dehydration.
-Plant key ingredients and Vitamin E protect the skin.

Alright, here’s the before and after photos. Do take note I applied everything in a rush for the below picture. Normally I’d take my sweet time so it doesn’t look like as messy as this ya.

Nose

(After)

I am especially amazed with what this did to my nose! Foundation applies smoothly without the “strawberry” look nose. For some reason I didn’t apply this to my cheek. Only forehead and nose.

This is in my Holy Grail list. I do plan to purchase the full size item after trying the trial size :)
