Clarins Eau des Jardins - Spring has sprung!

Along with doorbells and sleighbells and schnitzel with noodles, one of my favourite things in life is taking a shower.  Being the weirdo/compulsive buyer of shower products, I use certain ones for morning showers and other ones for evening showers.  Please tell me I'm not alone in this?

The existing Eau des Jardins fragrance from Clarins now has some new pals to go along with it in the form of a shower gel and body cream which I was sent last week.  I will say this now, I'm going to have to fight my mam for this one...

Clarins Eau des Jardins
L - Smoothing Body Cream (€33.55)  M - Fragrance (€40.67)   R - Uplifting Shower Gel (€21.35)

When I collected it from the post office last week and opened it (in the car might I add), I closed my eyes and inhaled the scent, immediately filing both the gel and cream into my Morning Scent category and couldn't wait for the following morning to use them.  The gel creates lots of suds quickly, smells divine and doesn't leave my skin feeling tight.  It leaves the scent on my skin for hours and is a morning shower product if ever there was one.  The front of the bottle says it cleanses, scents and softens.  Check, check and check.

The Eau des Jardins is a bright, fresh, citrussy and energising scent that really does uplift me when I use it.  It's a springy summery scent that puts me in good form when I have a whiff of them.  The body cream is light and refreshing and sinks into the skin easily, helping the scent of the shower gel to linger even longer.  I drove Joanne a teensy bit mad in town last Saturday, giving her hourly updates on how nice I was still smelling.  Not an exaggeration.  I can only imagine what I would have been like with the matching fragrance...

The Eau des Jardins products would make a perfect gift for Mother's Day this month.  This zesty shower gel and body cream will make your mammy happy or if you feel like indulging a bit and congratulating yourself for making it through the cold winter months, this is for you.  Or her.  Or both.  Then you won't have to fight each other for it.

Since mam heard I had this, I've had daily texts asking me if I've reviewed it yet so she can have a go.  And that's her not even having smelled it!  Mammy loves Clarins.  But that's a whole other post...


  1. Really love the fragrance of this stuff, too - keep it away from your mammy! xo

  2. This sounds gorgeous! Will have to go to a Clarins counter and have a sniff ;-)

  3. Mmmmm looks lovely! I was looking for something for my mum for mother day, so this might be it (plus, then I can borrow it lol)


  4. Mmm seems fab, pricy though for shower gel. What do you think?

  5. My mammy is a big fan of the red bottle clairns perfume

  6. Love Eau de Jardins, use it as body spray in the summer or as a base for Light Blue. The Eau Dinamisante (the red one) is gorgeous too, a bit strong and strange but very uplifting.

  7. nice opinion.. thanks for sharing...
