HEAVEN

I bought this with Caudelie's Beaty Elixir, both of which I decided I wanted per recommendations by the "IntoTheGloss" blog. I believe the Caudelie beauty Elixir gave me acne and there is a subtle old lady smell, but THIS CLARINS beauty flash balm does just what it claims- brightens your face in a flash! It tightens skin, smells fresh, blurs fine lines, moisturizes, and makes my skin FEEL healthy-- a great work hour pick me up when Starbucks is too far. If only it was a little cheaper because I have gotten in a habit of putting it on several times a day. Most effective skin product I have tried to date.

makeup primer!!!

honestly its the best primer i could ask for.... so many primers break out my sensitive skin and this one doesn't irritate me at all. leaves my skin feeling luminous without looking greasy, definitely a natural glow. doesn't feel heavy, a little goes a long way.... a little on the pricey side but to me its worth it because it gives my makeup a perfect glowing base and makes my foundation apply super smoothly... totally a winner in my book!

Matte primer that doesn't cause breakouts!

Having oilier skin, I've never been much of a moisturizer or primer user. I use sunscreen everyday, so I learned, after years of frustration, that primer can really help keep makeup from being ruined by greasy sunscreen. The problems is, any time I used a primer. after 2*3 days of use, I would get bad cystic acne. Most primers, no matter how lightweight they feel upon application, wind up kinda "melted" on my skin, and heavy-feeling. I have used Flash Balm for several weeks,and I've found it gives me a beautiful, matte finish that lasts all day. It seems to absorb oil! I even wear it alone as "clear" makeup, because it keeps my skin looking so supple, yet non-greasy. Best of all, this truly covers pores. I have used this as a mask, and my skin feels silky and soft afterwards. I haven't noticed any "tightening" feeling or any "brightening" when this is on my face, but I didn't buy it for those things. I wanted an airy primer that would cover pores and even my skin tone without adding a thick layer of chunky, congesting proudct. This is it! Wow! « less

Dab, don't swipe onto skin

Another user mentioned that this pills on dry skin, which it can do if you have some dead skin cells hanging there and you smooth/ swipe this over your skin. I don't wear foundation or concealer on top of this. Usually I use this after my final moisturizing step and dab/press it onto my face like I would a face oil. I've been using this for a month now and it definitely moisturizes. Brighten and tighten I haven't really noticed much.

Wow, i was really quite skeptical when first buying this, as i have very very dry skin that inflames pretty easily. At first use, i didn't get much result but that's my own fault (applied it completely wrong, woooops) but now after a week or so, my skin craves it. Its great under make up, creates a fantastic base for my foundation (clarins everlasting in ivory, another great product!). I also use it as a mask before night, it really seems to flush out oils and make up in the pores. However, with my nightmare skin i have to moisturise thoroughly after using the mask, but as i say that'd just my skin. I can imagine this product is great for those with oily skin also, as the texture is very thin and lightweight, it smoothes on like a dream. Will definitely be buying this again!
