Beauty Roundup: All-Around Firmers



I honestly have no idea how it works but for years I’ve used Clarins Beauty Flash Balm when my skin feels tired and sallow. And it actually makes a huge difference. I figure, just bask in the magic and don’t ask. Makes me want to try some other products that claim to tighten things up a little. Not looking for a miracle, but anything will do.


My friend Anne recently sent me a couple of these Farmacy Firming masks. I threw one on before a big meeting, and while my toddler freaked out at the very sight of me, I have to say I looked pretty skin-fresh for the rest of the day.
I am planning on trying Juice Beauty’s Firming Body Moisturizer because if it actually does something, then yay!
When I had the pleasure of working with Charlotte Tilbury, I marveled at her fun energy and the way she was the only person I ever met on a photo shoot (and I have been on too many to count) who wore high heels and an Azzedine Alaia skirt. Her Magic Night Cream sounds promising and I just trust her!
I am way into the idea of By Terry eye concealer,which is supposed to firm up under the eye, an area where most of us could use a little help.
I was a little skeptical the first time I heard about Deciem Neck Elasticity Catalyst but then I read that Nigella Lawson swears by it. I’ve been using it and I have to say I’ve seen a difference.
People seem to love Drunk Elephant so I feel like we should all trust that the C-Firma Day Serum has to do at least a little something.
Because I love Beauty Flash Balm so much, I have a lot of faith in the new Clarins Double Serum, which has a lot of years and technology behind it.

    Beauty Flash Balm is my desert island product. I’ve been using it for YEARS. Nothing’s better for making you look human after a late night or a long flight.

    I’m a big fan of Drunk Elephant (Try the Baby Facial…it stings a bit, but leaves your skin smooth as…yup! A baby’s butt!) and I use C Firma every morning under my moisturizer. And because of you, (fan girl 😉 ) I placed an order with Deciem, arriving tomorrow.
