A fact I don’t advertise a lot is that I’ve been battling chronic dryness, peeling flaky skin and clogged pores on my face since December 2012. I don’t really want to talk about depressing things like weird breakouts and flaky skin especially when I don’t know the cause nor cure. I’m not sure what happened or what I used, but nothing in my regular repertoire seemed to help. One evening, at my wits end, I decided to do something drastic (by my standards).
On my dresser sits a bottle of Clarins Lotus Face Treatment Oil. Its been sitting there for months. I used it now and again but never really derived or noticed much benefit from it. In fact, I have a feeling it gave me clogged pores. You will notice that its the old packaging that comes without a dropper. By the side is a sample I got of the oil which comes in a miniature of the new packaging with a dropper. I believe the new packaging has been in place for about a year at least now.
The Clarins Lotus Face Treatment Oil is targeted for those with oily-combination skin and it is supposed to help “purify” the skin while keeping it hydrated. There are 3 versions of the Face Treatment Oil – Blue Orchid (anti aging and dehydrated skin), Santal (dry to extra-dry skin) and Lotus (Oily-combination skin). I was recommended Lotus because its the lightest of the 3 and because it would suit most.
As I said before, I used it off and on without much glowing success but this time, I decided I’d do something a little different. I’d use just this Lotus Oil. Nothing else. Lets see what it can do. I honestly did not have much hope, but I had nothing to lose. Incredibly, I started seeing results!
