#1Rock n’ Roll: Museum Quality
Obsessed with rock superstars? You’re not alone. This season, a major gallery has an exhibit dedicated to the greatest rock musicians of our time. Grab a band tee and book your trip to New York City!
New York: The Rolling Stones
After a sold-out run at London’s Saatchi Gallery, the Rolling Stone’s "Exhibitionism" comes to Manhattan’s Industria Studios. With a reconstruction of their first apartment to a 3-D concert clip, this is the largest exhibition ever devoted to Mick, Keith, and co. (Bonus: A bottle of Clarins facial toner is featured in their recreated dressing room. Mr. Jagger is a fan!) Until Mid-March 2017.

#2Just Add Water
There are pros and cons of wearing make-up when exercising, but you have to admit that mascara can make you feel a little more powerful at the gym. For long-lasting waterproof hold, add Double Fix’ Mascara on top of your regular mascara, and protect lashes from sweat, rain, and even chlorine. It’s been tested and approved by both an ophthalmologist and Clarins insiders, so go ahead—make a splash!
#3Pump It Up with Aloe Vera!
Nature addicts swear by this power-packed plant, and Ayurvedic medicine was already using its superpowers 5,000 years ago. Even Cleopatra made it part of her skincare routine. But aloe’s beauty properties come from its function as a desert plant: to withstand the most arid climates, it traps an incredible amount of water, along with sugars, vitamins and minerals, at its core. This composition gives pure aloe vera gel unparalleled moisturizing properties for the skin, as well as soothing, repairing and healing benefits (like soothing sunburns and irritation). Taken orally, aloe also improves digestion and combats fatigue. What more could you ask for?
#4Virginie Courtin-Clarins, General Director: Mugler Fashion.
A granddaughter of Jacques Courtin-Clarins, Virginie grew up immersed in the world of French beauty. Now this Parisian native she welcomes us to her offices opposite L’Opéra to tell us about the future of style.
#5Help, I'm On the Brink of Burnout! What Can I Do to Relax?
Some stress can be motivating—too much, and we’re exhausted. To restore a feeling of well-being, try to put your body and mind on pause with some Me Time. Go for a massage, take baths, meditate, and choose products with plant ingredients proven to detox, revive, and restore your skin and spirit.
#6The Golden Age
You're determined to keep a sun-kissed glow all year round. Arm yourself with Clarins' surefire self-tanning weapon—Radiance-Plus Golden Glow Booster—and mix two to three drops with your normal day cream (ie: Multi-Active Day Cream) for a made-to-measure tan that looks incredibly natural, too.
#7The Breakfast Club
Attention, cereal monogamists: After New York, Paris and London, it's Paris' turn to open crunchy breakfast eateries. At Cerealiste, find brands from all over the world, a selection of milks (including rice and oat milk), toppings (honey, caramel, chocolate, etc.), and a cardboard box for your haul. Meanwhile at BOL Porridge Bar, sweet barley and oats are baked with plant milk, and savory ingredients (like spelt, leek, and haddock) make for unique offerings. We can’t wait to have our own cereal bar in Canada!

#8The Overnight Sensation
The Product: Multi-Active Night Cream
Bursting with plant extracts (teasel, organic Californian poppy, organic shea), this cream plunges skin into restorative sleep mode—even if you’re still wide awake. What happens? Radiance is revived, and you won’t look like you pulled an all-nighter—although that triple espresso shot might give you away.
Around age 30, long days and late nights start leaving real marks on your skin. This cream acts like an antidote for tiredness. After thorough make-up removal (yes, even at two a.m.!), apply it with gentle pressure, working from the middle of the face outward. (Don’t forget your neck.) You’ll wake up with smoother, more toned skin.
