Our experts answer you
Why should I use a Clarins facial cleanser?
With or without makeup, your face needs to be cleansed morning and night to rid it of impurities and pollution and to remove any residual makeup. Clarins cleansers and makeup removers harness nature to create its Gentle Complex with organic gentian and lemon balm extracts. These herbs are grown on Domaine Clarins, coating the skin with softening and protective properties.
Why should you cleanse your face every day?
Your face is exposed to external aggressors, pollution and temperature changes. Whether bare faced or made-up, your face should be cleansed every day, just like the rest of your body. For both hygienic and beauty reasons removing impurities and makeup, choosing a makeup remover or cleanser that suits your skin type and preferences is a must. Top beauty tip: once or twice a week, take the time to remove dead skin cells and imperfections with a Clarins scrub. Leave your skin feeling soft, glowing and beautiful.
How do I choose the right makeup remover for me?
The right choice depends on several factors: the cleansing formula - whether it’s milk, gel, cream, mousse, micellar water or oil, how long it takes to remove your makeup, how light or waterproof your makeup is, how sensitive your eyes are... Some women want to remove makeup quickly. Others are looking for a purifying, moisturizing or soothing effect, depending on their skin type. Clarins’ selection of makeup removers and cleansers boasts a wide range of products containing the Gentle Complex. Whichever formula you choose, the organic gentian and lemon balm extracts, sourced from Domaine Clarins will leave your skin feeling soft.
What is the best skin care routine for dry skin?
Clarins has developed a special range of Gentle Foaming Cleansers for all skin types. For dry skin, we recommend our yellow bottled Hydrating Gentle Foaming Cleanser.

Combined with the alcohol-free Hydrating Toning Lotion enriched with saffron flower extracts, this product moisturizes and softens normal to dry skin, leaving skin feeling supple and fresh.
What is the best skin care routine for oily skin?
The green bottled Purifying Gentle Foaming Cleanser draws its purifying power from Alpine herbs. Meadowsweet extract purifies combination to oily skin types and tightens pores. Its creamy formula enriched with blue microbeads has a purifying effect on the skin, organic soapwort extract gently cleanses the face and protects it from the effects of hard water. Our Purifying Toning Lotion contains witch hazel and saffron flower extracts which help balance combination to oily skin.
What is the best skin care routine for sensitive skin?
Very dry or sensitive skin requires a soothing facial cleanser. The pink bottled Soothing Gentle Foaming Cleanser gently cleanses, softens and protects skin every day.
