Description

Skincare boosters are a new innovation from Clarins. The real-time answer to your occasional beauty needs linked to your lifestyle and environment. The Detox Booster is a high-concentrate formula specifically designed to target damaged skin.
If your skin is suffering from the effects of a smokey environment, many late nights or even from the effects of pollution, the Detox Booster could be the right one for you.
The Detox Booster is designed to reverse these effects ultimately achieving revived radiance and detoxified plumped skin. The Detox Booster has a unique application process that is both quick and easy.
Simply add a couple of drops into your Clarins favourite Face Cream, Mask or Foundation. Use for a day, a week or a month depending on your skin’s needs. Boosters come in 3 different types, Energy, Repair and Detox.
- Key Benefits
• Restores radiance to dull complexions
• Detoxes and plumps the skin
- Key Ingredients:
• Glycerine: Helps maintain moisture and actually attracts and seals in moisture into the skin and is found in many skin products.
• Butylene Glycol: A petroleum based ingredient which is a preservative, thinning agent ad conditioner but it is a man made ingredient and is also used in anti freeze and construction materials so personally it is one ingredient I would prefer not to see but it is found in many skin products these days.
• Oat Kernel Extract: A great ingredient known to be calming on the skin and is used in many products for sensitive skin such as Aveeno products.
• Coffea Robusta Seed Extract: A coffee extract with lots of caffeine to stimulate and wake the skin up. It is full of anti oxidants to fight toxins and is a natural detoxifier ad it can reduce the effects of free radicals in our body up to 10 times than regular green tea.
• Green coffee: Boosts the blood circulation and helps slow down the appearance of signs of ageing . Finally green coffee beans are also rich in fatty acids and esters which nourish and moisturise the skin and help it sag less so slow the ageing process.
• Phenoxyethano: Another preservative agent and does nothing good to the skin.
• Passiflora Incarnata Flower Extract: Helps to unclog the pores of the skin. It is also used to relieve skin inflammation.
• Cotton Seed Extract: Contains proteins, minerals and essential oils that help to protect the skin and keep it moist.
• Sodium Hyaluronate: A plumping agent as it helps the skin absorb more water like a sponge .
• Potassium Sorbate: A preservative and an alternative to parabens but can cause skin and eye irritation so be aware.

Clarins Booster DETOX serum

Clarins say this " Clarins claim that this product does three things:
It revives radiance of a dull complexion
It detoxifies the skin
It plumps up the skin making lines less visible."

The main active ingredient in this one is green coffee So coffee beans not roasted and the cafeine extracted.

This is a light oil in looks and has a pleasant floral/light herb sort of aroma. This particular one is ideal for anyone who is living in a polluted environment such as a large city, maybe they might smoke or live with a smoker, they may travel in confined public transport frequently or anywhere that the environment has more than the usual pollutants.

Your skin does naturally cope with the toxins and pollutants in the environment but as we get older our skin finds this harder and also this natural built-in system of the skin struggles with excess pollution and especially things like cigarette smoke. (Thank heavens for the smoking ban in public places as I hated coming back from a night somewhere stinking of cigarette smoke – I could feel my skin aging) .When too much is thrown at the skin it struggles and this is when toxins begin to build up.

If you doubt this look at the skin of someone who is a smoker and you will easily see what damage has been done by the pollutants in the cigarette smoke.

This does not mean this product is only for smokers as we all have pollution all around us. It also helps when you are feeling tired or have been ill and your body is struggling to recover. I find my skin needs extra help when I am visiting my children who live in London and also when travelling by plane as the atmosphere is so dry and closed up for so many hours.

The way I use this is to add it to on of my other face products. Clarins suggest it works best with their products but I use natural face products and add this to one of those at least twice a day. I don’t use this every day but when I feel my face skin has been through a tough time.

You can add just three drops of this to a mask if you like and then lie back and let I do its work before rinsing it off along with all the toxins hopefully! I tend to add mine to either my serum or my moisturiser as I feel those are the products that stay longest and are absorbed by my skin.

I wash and tone my face before using my serum then moisturiser and afte that I may or may not apply a primer and foundation/BB cream or whatever. By adding the drops of Detox oil to my serum it gets to soak into my skin and hopefully the moisturiser will help it work and trap in all the goodness.

It is important to realise that this product will not work miracles if you continue to remain in a polluted environment, you must eat sensibly and drink lots of water to help flush out the toxins. Drinking water makes a huge difference to your skin and is the cheapest way to keep your skin fresh and radiant looking.

Is it worth the £30 price tag? Well personally I won’t be buying it again. It was okay but I think that using a good face oil, drinking lots of water and using natural masks and face creams and not eting stacks of junk food does the same job.

I don’t think it is a bad product but just over priced and has a couple of ingredients I would prefer were not there. I also am trying to avoid buying from companies with questionable animal testing ethics. I am more annoyed by those who claim to be against animal testing and then hide behind the disclaimer that some countries do test products – easy solution – don’t sell to those countries.

It didn’t cause me any irritation at all and I do sometimes get rashes from some skin care products so that is a plus.

My skin did look a bit fresher after a couple of weeks or so following a period when I looked awful, tired and drained of colour but that may just have been me getting better and using my other skin products.

User Reviews

Strongest points
* Some natural ingredients
* Only need the tiniest amount which is fortunate considering the huge price tag
* No scent
* Can be added to a number of facial products
* Non-comedogenic
* Dermatologist tested
* A lot of unnecessary packing which looks classy but is not eco friendly
* This is not a face lift but I have noticed that when my skin is looking tired after a long flight or after a few days in London if I use this twice daily for a week or so and drink lots of water that it seems to recover more quickly. I don’t look ten years younger but it doesn’t claim to do that. My skin just looks fresher and more radiant as though I have had a day or so of rest and pampering.
Weakest points
* Hugely expensive
* Not sure how effective it was as it is difficult to judge a detox - it seems to make my skin more radiant
* Dubious ethics on animal testing
* Fiddly as you have to mix it with another product so you and a small spoon or something and it is hard to tell if it is well mixed
Summary
There are three of these newish booster products in the Clarins range; Energy, Repair and this Detox one.

They sell for around £30 which I feel is a lot of money for 15 ml of product however fancy the name and a smart looking package.

The Energy one comes in an orange container, the Repair in a blue one and the Detox in a green one and they are all the same apart from the colours.

The contents do vary too of course and the Energy one is designed to tone and energise the skin while minimizing signs of fatigue and reviving radiance and has lots of ginseng as the active ingredient.

The Repair one they claim reduces feelings of discomfort, strengthens skin and minimises redness and the active ingredient is Mimosa tenuiflora. I will go into the Detox one in more detail in the review.

All three are oil products and you need just a small amount added to number of different product options for the benefits to be seen.

They all come in the same basic packaging. The container has a base and lid of a shiny gold ish metallic while the central section is the colour of which ever detox booster you have and it is a solid colour so the contents cannot be seen.

You dispense the oil with a kind of dropper at the end of the open end under the lid. It is almost like dispensing aromatherapy essential oils and in truth you get about the same amount in the container too .
