Clarins Blemish Control-Must Have!

Hormonal breakout, stress induced break outs, poor diet/life style, genetics, drug these are just a few of the things that can cause those annoying, painful puss infused pain in the ass PIMPLES!

Well, I've had my fair share of hormonal break outs all on the chin which represents the reproductive system in Chinese medicine.  I remember when working at the Aromatherapy clinic there were jokes about "somebody needing some love", well it is true.  Yes, sometimes getting some lovin' will help your skin.  When you're happy, you're skins happy.
Your skin reveals your emotions, it reveals your lifestyle, stress, thoughts, everything!

I've also tried numerous remedies to get rid of these pimples as I wasn't in relationship at the time and well the occassional swing here and there to get clear skin wasn't really an option for me, LOL!

French Lavender didn't cut it(although it has many of other wonderful healing abilities), Tea Tree(no thank you!) and lastly my only product that I will stand by forever even though it's rating is high on the cosmetic data base is Clarins Blemish Control.
It is the best I have used in clearing up my skin and even preventing those awful, cysytic 3-in-1 pimples!
You know the painful kind that shoot across the mirror when you pop it. You get two in a box so you can keep one handy in your purse and the other in the bathroom.
You won't be disappointed.

The active ingredients are:
-White Dead Nettle, Zinc, Vitamin B6: dry, calm imperfections and redness.
-Wintergreen : stimulates.
-Witch Hazel : anti-free radical, astringent.
-Allantonin : soothes, softens.


  1. Thanks for sharing! After nearly two years of breastfeeding, my cycles are finally returning and so are the pimples :(. I can really do with a good product. I normally try to be frugal, but a nice-looking skin is quite important, isn't it? I think I will have to buy the Clarins thingy!

    Loving your blog! I came here from MBC :).

    Have a great day,


  2. Thanks Olivia for leaving me my first comment!
    I too breast fed and for a good 16 months and then with my hormones swaying from one side to another when I finished I had to go get my trusty blemish control.
    A life saver indeed!

  3. Hi Erika! It's me Erika. We met at the Clairins spa this past August. I took my friend out for her birthday. I have to say that the Clarins blemish control and the gentle peel mask you recommended to me is working wonders for my skin. The skin treatment was awesome! I am glad we met. You are an esthetician I strongly recommend to people! I I will see you again when I book my next appointment soon at Clarins. Probably bring my mom this time! :) Thanks!

  4. Thank you so much Erika!
    Wow, I am thrilled to hear that the Clarins I recommended after giving you a facial at the Skin Spa have helped!
    Can't wait to see you and your skin the next time you come in :)
    You've made my day!


I love hearing from you. What are your thoughts?
