The essentials for an Holiday beauty ritual with Clarins
ClarinsMen Shampoo & Shower
Kick off your day with a fresh shower experience using ClarinsMen Shampoo & Shower. This invigorating 2-in-1 cleansing gel for body and hair is formulated with bison grass and gymnema, that have energizing properties. Thanks to provitamin B5, it will fortify your hair, leaving it shiny and easy to style. Its fresh, soothing, aromatic essences will elevate your mood. Extremely gentle, this formula can be applied daily, morning and night.
ClarinsMen Exfoliating Cleanser
Next, continue with ClarinsMen Exfoliating Cleanser. Designed for gentlemen’s skin, this 2-in-1 creamy product cleanses and purifies, removing dead cells and unclogging pores with soapwort extracts and zinc gluconate, leaving your skin smoother, softer and brighter.
ClarinsMen Energizing Gel
Follow up with ClarinsMen Energizing Gel to rejuvenate your skin. Men’s skin is thicker than that of women and needs to be hydrated regularly to stay healthy. This fresh, non-sticky, low-scent hydrating gel is packed full of plant extracts to reenergize and brighten your skin. With its distinctive red pump bottle, it delivers the perfect dose of vitality, recharging skin and leaving it toned, rested and healthy-looking, all set for the holiday season. For tired eyes, add ClarinsMen Energizing Eye Gel, a perfect care product for those with busy lifestyles.
Double Serum, Two Essentials for Everyday Use
Incorporate the Double Serum Light Texture by day for a natural finish, and the Double Serum at night for a radiant complexion by morning. These target visible signs of aging and are suitable for all skin, especially ours, fellow gentlemen, as it produces twice the sebum than that of the ladies due to our higher testosterone levels. As a matter of fact, the sebaceous glands secrete more sebum than is necessary for the hydrolipidic film that ensures its barrier function. As a result of such imbalance, skin tends to become shiny and cell renewal is hampered. Skin can also become thicker as pores enlarge. The skin therefore calls for adapted care products and lighter textures that won’t cause a greasy film to be left on its surface. All in all, this is what the product has to offer.
A complete shaving routine
ClarinsMen recently unveiled its new Shave + Beard skincare line for those seeking a true expert shaving experience while caring for and protecting their skin. To bolster the performance of this exclusive line, Clarins decided to combine its expertise with the know-how of master barbers. This makes shaving and beard care a quick, easy and ultra-comfortable expert ritual.
This new line has been formulated to satisfy the need for performance and ease of use, and is designed for men requiring the very best when it comes to shaving. It has been jointly developed with recognized master barbers as experts in the field. Ranging from Samy Zerouali in Paris to Justin Carr in London and Lord Jack Knife in Norway, these enthusiasts have all developed their own know-how, routines and recommendations, which they share in their respective barber shops. Basically, we’re talking about genuine expertise that has inspired and guided ClarinsMen in the development of these unique skincare products. Discover the Smooth Shave Foaming Gel, the After Shave Soothing Gel, as well as the After Shave Soothing Toner.
Smooth Shave Foaming Gel
Ideal for an easy and effective close shave, the Smooth Shave Foaming Gel will become your best daily ally. Perfect for preparing the skin for shaving, this ultra-smooth foaming gel envelops and softens hair. It protects the skin from irritation during shaving and leaves the skin soft, fresh, and comfortable afterward. Thanks to its dense, generous, protective, and effective foam, every shave is quick, ensuring you’re on time for appointments or ready for an evening out. For coarse hair, mix in a few drops of Shave + Beard Oil with the foam for a smoother shaving experience.
Shave + Beard Oil
For a neat, clean and silky beard, you need this 2-in-1 treatment with plant extracts, it will be love at first shave with this lightly scented oil. Neither greasy nor sticky, it leaves no film on the skin. This oil is formulated to masterfully soften hair and to counteract minor skin irritations caused by shaving. Dermatologically tested, it is highly tolerable for the skin.
Daily beard maintenance is easy with pistachio extract to coat and strengthen the hair, while castor oil leaves the beard soft, providing structure and flexibility. Your beard will be smooth, disciplined, and soft to the touch, free of frizz and dryness. For easier shaving, apply it on its own, preferably on damp skin, or before using the Smooth Shave Foaming Gel for a perfect razor glide. Or, use it as a daily beard care product — a few drops in the palm mixed with the gel for a softened, revitalized beard.
After Shave Soothing Gel
This 2-in-1 after shave moisturizes the skin and cares for the beard. An ideal combination for an easy daily routine that meets the needs of discerning men. The “restorative effect” helps alleviate irritation and redness from shaving. Your skin is left instantly refreshed, moisturized, smoothed, and mattified, thanks to pistachio lentiscus extract. It’s the easy-to-use gel that tames your beard in one simple step. Its fresh, non-greasy, invisible texture is gently smoothed onto the face, providing a comforting, soothing sensation.
After Shave Soothing Toner
Intensely refreshing, this toner calms sensations of razor burn and irritation post-shaving. Simply put, it reduces the appearance of pores, while refreshing and toning the skin. Soothed and reenergized, your skin will instantly be in tip-top shape. This ultra-fresh product, with a non-oily, non-sticky finish, is applied after shaving by patting lightly onto the skin. Only pure, powerful freshness for your face!
