Product Review: MAC Prep + Prime Lip Base and Clarins Exfoliating Cleanser

I have used both the MAC Prep + Prime Lip Base and Clarins One-Step Gentle Exfoliating Cleanser with Orange Extract for some time now, and I think they are worth writing about.

 

 

MAC Prep + Prime Lip Base

I apply this MAC Prep + Prime Lip Base first before applying my lipstick. I have used it for years now, and I think it is one of the best lip primers at the moment.

Here is the product description –

A colour-free lipstick base that adds light moisture, smoothes and refines the lips. Improves the appearance of the applied lip products.

 

 

PROS

  1. My lips tend to get really dry, this moisturises my lips perfectly!
  2. My lipstick stays on all day without needing a top up, and without cracks, thanks to this fab lip base.
  3. It can be used alone as a lip balm.
  4. It has a lovely texture and smells good too.
  5. A little is all that is needed.
  6. I like the compact size, so easy to pop in a small bag.
  7. It is available to buy at many beauty shops for ยฃ14.

 

CONS

None.

I can’t fault this product at all. I recommended to anyone dealing with dry lips, or struggling to apply matte lipsticks. This MAC Prep + Prime Lip Base is all you need.

 

Clarins One-Step Gentle Exfoliating Cleanser with Orange Extract

I use this Clarins One-Step Gentle Exfoliating Cleanser once a week, and I have done so for a few weeks now.

Here is the product description –

The Clarins One-Step Gentle Exfoliating Cleanser with Orange Extract is a spa-fresh exfoliating facial cleanser that polishes-away make-up, embedded impurities and spent surface cells in one time-saving step to reveal the glowing skin beneath. The bi-phase scrub both cleanses and exfoliates, gently removing everything that makes the skin look dull, leaving the skin smooth, soft and luminous. Orange extract works to soften, refresh and revive. Moringa Seed extract, with anti-pollution benefits, purifies and refines the skin and helps to restore its natural radiance. Gentle Silica Microbeads tackle clogged pores, exfoliate and renew. The exfoliating scrub leaves skin comfortable and ultimately refreshed. Suitable for all skin types.

 

 

PROS

  1. I love the compact packaging.
  2. It smells amazing, I could sniff the orange scent all day.
  3. It is a great multi-tasking product – Cleansing and Exfoliating at the same time.
  4. It is great for all skin types.
  5. It is easily available to buy at many beauty shops for ยฃ21 for a 100ml.
  6. It leaves my skin feeling soft, smooth and clean.
  7. You only need a small amount, a little goes a long way.

 

CONS

  1. It stings the eyes if they come in contact, so do not apply around the eye area.

 

I love this Clarins One-Step Gentle Exfoliating Cleanser. I love how it makes my skin glow. I do recommend it and I can see myself using this product for many years to come.
