Must-have Monday: Clarins Beauty Flash Balm

This cult product has been around for the last 20 years. Here’s why we still love it

Our beauty editor, Cathi Trevor, says: ‘This week I’ve gone with the Clarins Beauty Flash Balm. This cult product has been around for the last 20 years and is so popular that one is sold every 20 minutes worldwide!’


‘It contains olive oil for smoothing skin and Bisabolol for softening skin, and it promotes lasting radiance. It’s a fab pick-me-up for tired-looking skin, as it tightens features and conceals dullness and wrinkles. It’s perfect for applying before a big night out or an important meeting. (I also love using it after a flight to hydrate my skin and make me look bright-eyed and bushy-tailed!)’


‘It can be used as a primer, moisturiser or mask, and it maximises the effect of your makeup, so you don’t need to be heavy-handed with your foundation!’


‘It really is a must-have for brightening skin and giving it a radiant, youthful glow.’
