Jumbo_Double_Serum_Cap-Off_CMYK Spring into a new season with radiant, glowing skin! As we say goodbye to winter’s woes – fighting dry, dull skin and a winter complexion – we look to ways to rehydrate our skin and get it into tip-top shape for spring.

 Prep with Clarins Groundbreaking Anti-aging Serum and Cult product, Double Serum, now available in a Deluxe Luxury 50 ML size! Clarins’ award-winning anti-aging serum is the only serum your skin will ever need! Double Serum’s innovative, dual chamber system combines two age-defying formulas into one groundbreaking serum that reactivates the skin’s five vital functions: hydration, nutrition, oxygenation, protection and regeneration.

Follow with Clarins self-tanning innovation, Golden Glow Booster, for an instant sun-kissed look. Transform your complexion by adding just 3 drops of Golden Glow Booster to your favorite moisturizer and mix together before applying. Enjoy all the skin care benefits of your day or night cream with the added benefit of 365 days of golden, healthy-looking skin!

Next, add a pop of color from Clarins Opalescence Spring Collection. Spring is about reintroducing seasonal colors into your beauty routine, and as seen on the SS ’14 runways, it’s all about romantic hues of pink. Whether you’re looking for softer, more subtle color or something warmer, more vibrant, Clarins has the solution in its new Opalescence Spring Makeup Collection.

Last but not least, Clarins is launching a new Sunscreen Care Oil Spray SPF 30 for hair and body! There is little debate as to the harmful effects of the sun, and as the weather gets warmer and we spend more time outdoors, SPF should be a part of our everyday routine. The new spray is a lightweight, dry oil with SPF 30 that protects skin and hair from the drying effects of sun, salt, and chlorine, while enhancing a rich, healthy-looking tan for all skin types.
