Crazy for Clarins

I've been a lazy blogger as of late, I'll admit it. Summer sidled up again and between traveling and being social, my blogging has falling by the wayside. That all changes today because I want to share with you the amazing experience I had with the iconic French skincare brand Clarins at Saks today. I was fortunate enough to be their guest and received a facial, makeover and treats and can not thank them enough.

My facial was given by Elaine Farmer, one of their best aestheticians, and it was as educational as it was cleansing. She explained everything from the history of the brand, to the product's ingredients  and all points in between. It was great getting schooled about the brand's gentle plant-based products while she cleansed me to perfection.

Ah. So very relaxing.

After my dreamy facial, Tony, a lead educator of the brand, gave me a makeover, also explaining the makeup's ingredients and benefits as he worked on me. Tony had so much passion for the brand and made the makeover one of the most fun I've ever had. From receiving a lymphatic massage during my facial (highly recommended) to discovering their now greater range of colors and shades of makeup (they are listening to women of color demanding more!), it was a most excellent experience.

I left Saks ready to take on the world with my clean fresh look, and am beyond excited to try all the beauty booty they sent me home with. I am certainly crazy for Clarins and you will be too!
