I am very excited about this because I really like Clarins foundations and, as I hate my enlarged pores, the Clarins Pore Perfecting Matifying Foundation sounded like music to my ears. I have it here to show you with swatches of all the available shades and also before and after photos. Enjoy! Find it here
So first of all, this comes in a squeezy tube, which I love. I love the Clarins Extra Comfort foundation but it comes in a glass pot and that’s seriously impractical. A tube, however, is perfect – super hygienic and very easy to travel with.

Before & After Photos
I literally couldn’t wait to get this on my face! I went with the lightest shade, 01 Nude Ivory.
The above photos show a light layer blended with my fingers.
And here it is with the Clarins Summer 2017 look:

Also within this collection is the brand new Clarins Pore Matifying Kit (£33) which is a pretty unique compact kit that features a super-fine translucent powder and also refillable blotting papers in a slide out drawer.
The powder contains skincare ingredients to protect against the environment and dehydration and give the skin a soft matte, perfected finish. It’s brilliant.
