Clarins: Gentle Night Cream Day 7 Review.

Clarins Gentle Night Cream- the front.
Instructions to use.
The spout up-close.
A squirt size of the night cream.
So I was chosen by the good people of Active Skin to be among those selected to review this product from Clarins range of moisturizing creams.

Product: Clarins Gentle Night Cream. (Sensitive Skin)

Product Description: The perfect night time complement to Gentle Day Cream to gently soothe, soften and rebalance sensitive skin. This product can be used after the routine of cleansing and toning of the face in the daily routine.

Ingredients include: 
* Vegetal complex: immediately soothes irritated skin
* Noctoferrine® Clarins exclusive complex neutralizes nocturnal
free radicals
* Vitamins A, E and B5: balance, combat signs of aging
* Christophine
* Hazelnut
* Linseed

Moisture Level
As my skin ranges between dehydrated/dry/sensitive, this product was sent to me for trialling purposes.
 
After trialling out the product for 7 days, I find that the moisture level of the Clarins Gentle Night Cream was not too rich, but not too light for the temperate Australian Winter to Spring transition climate. 

I found that the cream was fairly suitable for my skin which was dry around the cheeks, and yet not too rich in the T-zone area, which had more sebum production.
 
The Clarins Gentle Night Cream for Sensitive Skin would be suitable for people with dry skin, or sensitive skin. The cream is white in colour, has a creamy consistency, and it seems to be fragrance free.

That's good too as I don't like skincare with too much fragrances the older I get, and skincare with added fragrance I find, may irritate skin and some people may be averse to the strong fragrance found in some skincare products.

Amount Used
A single small squirt of the cream on my fingertips, which I warmed up before applying it lightly in light sweeping motions was adequate to cover my face, and provided enough moisture.

The cream seems to have an oil base, so it would be suitable for those who possess dry to sensitive skin, so it would not be so suitable for those who possess dehydrated type skin.

Cleaning Black Stockings

So I started a new job last week.

Part of my attire included a new pair of Denier 50, and 40 winter stockings. It was soaked in a solution of laundry powder, and warm water.

An hour later, I was surprised to see the post soak solution thoroughly a dark pasty colour.

Me: It looks really pasty.
Flatmate: How long have you used it?
Me: Only this week.
R:Then it must be the dye.
Me: Dye??? I didn't think they dyed stockings...
