Clarins Extra-Comfort Anti-Pollution Cleansing Cream review

Well how do ya like them apples, sure haven't I only gone and fallen in love with a cream cleanser!  More specifically, the Clarins Extra-Comfort Anti-Pollution Cleansing Cream.  Back in the day I used to use cream cleansers and used to find it such a faff to have to take it all off with cotton wool pads and I ended up going through so many packets of cotton wool, I stopped using them.

But now I feel like I've gone back to basics with this new cleansing cream aimed at both detoxifying the skin with moringa seed extract while nourishing it and cleansing it of course.  

The tube is massive and will last you for ages and the cream itself is rich and luxurious.  It has shea and mango butter which makes it feel even more unctuous that a regular cream cleanser and feels like it's doing something extra for your skin rather than just cleaning it.

I apply a walnut sized amount into my hands and warm it up a bit before massaging it all over my skin.  Then I do the Clarins cleansing technique which involves placing your hands flat against your skin and then moving your hands away your face quickly, creating a mini suction effect which is meant to help lift dirt and makeup out of your pores.  I just like the noise it makes and it sounds like what the word "moist" would sound like.  Nice, I know.  I then use a wet facecloth to remove it all and it leaves my skin feeling soft, smooth, nourished and clean.

It's great for taking makeup off but because I've little delicate eyeballs, I haven't let it near them, so I can't say how it works on mascara.

It's a reasonable €30 which might sound like a lot but the tube is nearly the size of a bottle of body lotion.  So girlie maths means you're allowed to get it and use it and love it.  It's a proper treat for the visage and I feel like I'm pampering myself every time I use it.


  1. Great post, this blog always puts a smile on my face with good old Irish humour. I was just wondering if you would recommend this as a morning cleanser? I'm looking for something hydrating, but won't leave me with frying pan face. I have combination skin.

  2. Mmm, this sounds lovely. Love me a bit of Clarins.
