Clarins and birthday treats

Do you ever buy yourself a birthday present?

I know it's really decadent but I did make a couple of purchases in dutyfree. I would have been rude not too!

The last couple of trips we have been on we have had a very decadent time (read, spent a lot of money!)  This holiday was much more refrained and lovely all the same.  A big learning curve for us that we can have an incredible time with out blowing the budget.

It was also my birthday.  It's nice to be away for your birthday as it feels luxurious for me.

Even though I got spoilt and looked after incredibly well, I did buy myself a couple of lovely things at the airport.  Like a lot of people, I am a Clarins fan and currently my summer fragrance of choice is Eau-Ressoursant, it is light and summery and a change from Kenzo Flower which I have been wearing for years, and much easier to pack!  So I immediately took myself off to see what inspired me.

It was undoubtedly a tough choice but with the consideration of all the products I have at home it had to be facial products.  I have felt recently that my skin needs something just a little bit more, so back to an old faithful I went and beauty flash balm  was quickly added to the basket along with the facial tan, I used Clarins facial tan years ago and loved it.  They then changed the formulation and I wasn't such a fan, but stuck with it for a while.  Then I went with the pale and interesting look!  Now I have firmly acknowledged, I am ridiculously pale and really do look much "healthier" with a touch of colour on my face.

I find myself always going back to Clarins like the worn handbag and shoes you re-heel more than you thought possible.  They are just a great, quality brand.

What are your favourite brands?
