Clarins Instant Light Balm Perfector is a part makeup, part skincare hybrid. It’s a luxurious lip balm that includes mango and shea butter, smells delicious and leaves a pretty shine.
As it’s a lip balm, the texture is rich and creamy rather than sticky and it leaves my lips feeling soft and moisturised. The rose colour gives a sheer hint of shimmery nude rose pink but not a full colour, which is all I need at the beach and by the pool. So it essentially gives my pout a subtle shine more than anything!
Also, that packaging, so elegant and lipstick-like for a simple balm, making it easy to apply without a mirror. The smell is gorgeous, sweet and delicious too.
Anyway, a great little luxury purchase for holidays and summer – you can buy it from John Lewis for £18.50.
