Clarins Extra-Comfort Foundation SPF 15
after trying this product for the past two weeks now i must say i am very pleased! i have tried all brands of foundation due to working in this industry already but this is by far way up there with he greats. i have a normal skin with oily t zone but this does not cause any shine to creep in mid day and keeps me feeling very comfortable. i have had many comments on my foundation and how flawless my skin looks whilst still appearing to look like skin! the fact of this and the added benefits of spf plus anti aging properties makes this a must try for any of you questioning it. what a fab product! i will be re-purchasing

I am never buying anything other than Clarins!...
... Okay, that might be an overstatement :) In all seriousness- this is an amazing foundation. Amazing.
At first I was not convinced- it is advertised as a moisturising anti-age product, and I'm not old enough to worry about filling wrinkles as I still have very few. It just seemed like something targeted for more mature skin and I'm sure it works fabulous for them, however even if you're young you can benefit from this gorgeous foundation.
The product itself is a fairly thick cream, so the pot it comes in can get a bit messy. It is also highly pigmented, so you only need to put a very small amount of it on your face. I cannot stress this enough- you could easily overdo it. It also means that this foundation will last you a long, long time. The coverage is medium to full and a pretty good match to my skin tone, however I do wish Clarins would expand their ranges to suit more undertones. I would definitely recommend getting matched at a counter rather than buying blind. This foundation can be put on with a brush, but I found using my fingers to blend it onto my skin gives a much more natural finish. Did I mention it looks absolutely gorgeous? Because it looks absolutely gorgeous :)
Now for the best part- apart from being a highly pigmented, beautiful foundation, it moisturises my skin. I have combination/dry skin prone to flaking and this product just makes it glow. The first hour after I apply it, it doesn't do much apart from just looking pretty, but as the day goes on my skin, instead of getting oilier on the nose and dry/patchy on the cheeks, just keeps looking flawless and oddly supple. I've never had a foundation like this before.
If you have dry or mature skin that needs extra moisture throughout the day, are looking for medium to full coverage and fit into the shade range (which is a bit limited), you should check this out!

WHY IS THIS SOLD IN A JAR???? - Really impractical, can't believe that Clarins have obviously not tried and tested this! It goes everywere, and is not suitable for carrying around in a handbag as it weighs more than a brick!! Please put foundation in practical tubes or dispensers and not in solid glass chunky jars! I will never buy this again, despite it being a very nice product. VERY DISAPPOINTED.
