Skincare routine - Clarins Daily Energizer products

My skincare routine changes quite frequently. There is always new products that I am interested in, plus I am privileged that I occasionally get sent products to try. However I do also have a few staple products in my routine which I wouldn't be without and which I feel have made a noticeable difference to my skin, these products are products which are used at night though. I love reading about other peoples skincare routine, so I thought I would post an updated version of mine and share my thoughts on the products I have been using during the day.

My daytime skincare routine is fairly simple and for the past 3 weeks or so I have been using Clarins New Energizer products. Although the products in this range are aimed at 18 to late 20’s age group, I think the four natural ingredients used in these products benefits any age and skin type.

- Vitamin C stimulates the skin’s natural defences to keep it looking fresh all day, preventing fatigue and dull skin tone.
Turmeric or Indian saffron a powerful antioxidant which strengthens the above action.
Purifying Alchemilla, an astringent plant extract that regulates sebum production to keep pores and the complexion clear.
- Ginkgo biloba a radiance boosting ingredient which helps to improve the skin’s uptake of oxygen so it looks brighter and healthier and to strengthen the walls of the skin’s super-fine network of blood capillaries.

Clarins Daily Energizer Cleansing Gel (£10.50)

I have well and truly fallen in love with this cleanser and will be definitely re-purchasing. I do prefer a gel cleanser as of late and this is by far the best one I have used to date. It's so gentle to use and smells absolutely amazing. I use this both in the morning to clean and refresh my skin and also of an evening to remove my make up. When using of an evening, I simply splash my face with a bit of water first then massage the gel cleanser into my skin. Every single inch of make up can be seen breaking up on my skin and when used with a muslin cloth, every trace of make up is wiped away and my skin is left feeling soft, fresh and totally clean. Its a product that is an absolute pleasure to use and I actually look forward to removing my make up of an evening.

Clarins Daily Energizer Wake-up Booster (£15.00)

The Daily Energizer Wake-up Booster is a lotion which is recommended for use in the morning after cleansing the skin. It contains skin awakening properties and I find it instantly freshens, tones and perks up my skin ready for the day ahead. Basically its very similar to a toner, except it is a lot more thicker and it feels like it really penetrates the skin. Again the scent of this product is amazing and it really does stimulate the senses and not only perk up my skin but perks up my whole state of mind too.

Clarins Daily Energizer Cream-Gel (£19.50)

There are three moisturisers to choose from in the energizer range, depending on skin type. As I have normal/combination skin, the one most suited to me is the Cream-Gel. It claims to moisturise, protect and treat for clearer, smoother, shine-free skin. I find this to be the perfect moisturiser for morning use. I find it to be nice and light upon application but it still feels luxurious to use and leaves my skin soft and silky immediately. After a few days of use, I started to notice how my skin was looking a lot more radiant and clear, without an inch of dullness apparent.

Clarins Daily Energizer Lotion SPF15 (£19.50)

I have been using this as well as the daily moisturiser, purely because the energizer cream-gel doesn't offer me any SPF protection, which is something I need especially because of the products I use on my skin at night. Sometimes moisturisers with an added SPF can be a bit heavy, but this is incredibly light to use. Its also oil free so its suitable for people with an oily skin type as it doesn't leave my face feeling greasy at all and works really well as a make up base when used over the moisturiser.

Overall the ingredients in this whole line of products certainly do what they say and make skin look and feel a lot more energized and radiant. They are all a pleasure to use and have definitely perked up my skin and has made it look noticeably a lot more brighter, healthier and radiant while also keeping it hydrated.

Keep your eyes peeled for my evening skincare routine, which will be coming soon!


  1. ahh you're amazing! i have been waiting for someone to review this! glad it's you ;) definitely going to be trying these out, they sound amazing! xo.

  2. Awww thanks Chick. They will be perfect for your age group too. They really are fab products and reasonably priced too. xx

  3. I have these too, love 'em. Looking forward to seeing your evening routine babes.

    LY xxxxxxxxx

  4. Great post Jo, now I really want to try these, lol! Do you think the Daily Energizer Cream-Gel would be fine to apply foundation straight on top? xx

  5. Yeah Dannii. Its light enough and sinks in really well, so it wouldn't be a problem. xxx

  6. I use the moisturizer with SPF from this line and I love it! I find I need quite a bit of product to cover my whole face and neck though (maybe it's just me). I hate that I can't find it in the US though, will definitely repurchase when I go to Europe. And will try the wakeup lotion as well!

    Great review! Thanks for all the info on the rest of the line :) :)

  7. The bright colour of these looks great, glad to hear the cleanser works so well. I have dry/dehydrated skin, do you think the cleanser would work for me?

  8. I don't see any reason why it wouldn't hun. Im prone to dryness on my cheeks and I've experienced cleansers in the past that have dried my skin out and added to the problem, but I have no problems whatsoever with this.

  9. Now this a line i instantly want to try: i just love anything orange and anything vitamin c! mmmmmmmmmmmm xxx

  10. I have started to use this product recently, and I must say the paranoid issues I use to have concerning my shiny and oily t-zone, have now become something of the past. The products work very well from first time use, and even my friends have noticed a difference in my skin. Definitely recommend this product to all..:)
