3 Products I Bought at Sephora to Achieve Clear Skin

Hello, lovelies!

I’ve tried many different products and samples to maintain clear skin. Some products were ineffective, while others stopped working once my skin acclimatized to them. The products I currently use are soothing on my sensitive skin while still effective for breakouts.

1. Tarte Cosmetics Deep Dive Cleansing Gel 

This brightening gel cleanser from Tarte is gentle enough to use daily to cleanse and reduce breakouts. It does not foam or leave any residue, which keeps my skin clear without clogging my pores. This cleanser is the main product I apply as part of my skin care routine.

2. GlamGlow Super Mud Clearing Treatment 

I like to apply a heavy-duty cleanser once a week. GlamGlow’s Super Mud Clearing Treatment is a thicker mud mask that minimizes pores while maintaining the skin’s natural moisture. It contains active charcoal and salylic acid to lift away dirt and other skin-clogging debris. This mask refreshes my skin and decreases any blemishes I may have.

3. Clarins SOS Hydra Refreshing Hydration Mask 

One skincare product I don’t use diligently is a moisturizer. On days when my skin is dry and just needs extra moisture, I apply this hydration mask from Clarins. It is a cooling, cream-gel mask that delivers hydration. While it does not cleanse or brighten my skin, it effectively hydrates and refreshes my skin. If my skin appears drier or dull this mask is the perfect product to introduce more moisture into my skin.

Clarins Double-Fix Mascara 


Hello, lovelies!
I bought a kit filled with mascara samples from my local drugstore last month. It contained mascaras from brands including Lancome, Smashbox, and Clarins. Double Fix Mascara is the first product I’ve tried from the Clarins brand. This unique mascara contains a double-use topcoat for lashes.
The Packaging

This mascara features a multicoloured tube. The wand is attached to a red-chrome cylinder while the product is contained in a white cylinder. Most mascara packages are black, so this colour combination offers a nice contrast.

The Mascara

Why is the mascara called double-fix? The mascara is both a top-coat mascara and regular mascara. The unique topcoat waterproofs eyelashes for mascara application. One portion of the cylinder contains a black mascara. The waterproof portion of the product is a clear, mess-free gel.
This mascara is waterproof and does not smudge. I wore it for 8-9 hours last week, and to my delight, it still appeared freshly-applied! 

Clarins Double Fix Mascara retails for $35 at Nordstrom.
