Clarins donate 30,000 moisturizing creams to hospitals


Day and night, the hands of healthcare professionals provide care and help, bring hope and comfort. This routine is hard on the hands, the skin suffers and becomes dry.

In the upcoming weeks, as a way of supporting these professionals in their fight against the epidemic, we will donate 30,000 moisturizing creams to hospitals.

Olivier Courtin-Clarins

The French Maison have already produced and offered more than 18,000 bottles of hand sanitizer to AP-HP, Assistance Publique – Hôpitaux de Paris and hospitals in the Ile-de-France region. From now until the end of April, Clarins will produce 100 tons of hand sanitizer. In the next few days, they will do everything they can to respond to the demand from other hospitals across the world.


Clarins also wanted to allow their customers to contribute to this wave of solidarity. On their French website, they can donate €1 to support hospitals.

Thank you to our Production, Research and Development teams, our suppliers and carriers, who have also been supplied with hand sanitizer so that they too can continue protecting themselves. Without them, none of this would be possible ❤️.

Olivier Courtin-Clarins


Thank you to our clients for their generosity and for sharing the same values as we do.

Olivier Courtin-Clarins

In this way, Clarins humbly contribute to the extraordinary collective effort we are witnessing today. Come into the beautiful world of Clarins.




Clarins donated hand sanitizers for healthcare workers


Due to the increasing number of coronavirus patients, hospitals are experiencing shortages of important supplies, such as hand sanitizer. Many hospitals are even asking for and accepting donations of N95 masks and other supplies.

To help fight against the spread of COVID-19, major beauty companies, like Clarins, are now starting to repurpose their manufacturing facilities to make hand sanitizer.

During this international health crisis related to the Covid-19, as a socially responsible company, French Maison Clarins have decided that their industrial sites in Pontoise as well as in Strasbourg and Amiens will help deliver hand sanitizer to French hospitals.

A big THANK YOU to our production and R&D teams as well as hospitals staff for their engagement amid these exceptional circumstances! Thanks to them, to our suppliers and carriers, we are proud to be able to do our part, in line with values we have always stood for. Take care of yourself and your loved ones ❤️.


Clarins have already produced and offered 14,500 bottles of 400ml to hospitals. Clarins says this is a first step, and they will continue to do so for as long as it’s needed in adequate sanitary conditions.

Clarins Everlasting Youth Fluid Foundation SPF15


French Maison Clarins launched its new Everlasting Youth Fluid Foundation, which combines the best of Clarins skincare and makeup. The foundation is particularly aimed at helping the aging skin to restore its youthful radiance. According to the brand, by the age of 50, the skin loses up to 34% of its ability to reflect and radiate light. This happens due to natural changes in the skin, such as the loss of density, more visible wrinkles, and changes in the skin texture.

Clarins reveals the secret to Everlasting Youth

Clarins’ Everlasting Youth Fluid Foundation delivers a powerful dual effect by smoothing and toning the skin to restore its girlish radiance. A blend of ingredients, including collagen-boosting Chicory, mildly exfoliating Red Jania extract, and skin tightening Organic Oat extract, improves the skin’s light reflection properties while making it firmer and smoother.


A blend of protective botanicals, such as Organic Nipplewort, Organic White Horehound and Furcellari, protects the skin from environmental pollution. On the makeup side, the foundation is infused with a skin tone optimizing complex, containing pigment coated pearls, to create a luminous rosy reflection without setting in the fine lines and wrinkles.

Finally, the foundation is fortified with SPF 15, which blocks 93 percent of UVB rays, if applied properly. The foundation is available in 24 beautiful shades (the exact number of shades depends on the market, which should be more than enough to cover all skin tones and ethnicities.


Clarins Everlasting Youth Fluid Foundation comes in a 30ml bottle with a price tag of €46. Clarins Everlasting Youth Fluid Foundation is available at selected stores worldwide and at Clarins. Watch the video below.

L’Oréal to buy Mugler and Azzaro from Clarins


In 1909, Eugène Paul Louis Schueller, a young French chemist of German descent, developed a hair dye formula called Oréale. Schueller formulated and manufactured his own products, which he then decided to sell to Parisian hairdressers. On 31 July 1919, Schueller registered his company, the Société Française de Teintures Inoffensives pour Cheveux (Safe Hair Dye Company of France). The guiding principles of the company, which eventually became L’Oréal, were research and innovation in the field of beauty. In 1920, the company employed three chemists. By 1950, the team was 100 strong; by 1984 was 1,000 and is nearly 82,000 today.

L’Oréal got its start in the hair-colour business, but the company soon branched out into other cleansing and beauty products. L’Oréal currently markets over 500 brands and thousands of individual products in all sectors of the beauty business: hair colour, permanents, hair styling, body and skin care, cleansers, makeup and fragrance. In the years L’Oréal build a large portofolio of brands like: Lancôme, Helena Rubinstein, Biotherm, Kiehl’s, Giorgio Armani Beauté, Yves Saint Laurent Beauté, Viktor & Rolf, Cacharel, Maison Margiela and Ralph Lauren Fragrances, to name just a few.

And now L’Oréal is in exclusive negotiations to acquire perfume brands Mugler and Azzaro from Clarins Group, the French beauty giant announced this morning.

The perfume category is at the heart of our global strategy for growth at L’Oréal Luxe. In this context, we would be thrilled to welcome Mugler and Azzaro: these signatures, with a long history in fashion and olfaction, would perfectly complete our portfolio of brands.

Cyril Chapuy, President of L’Oréal Luxe.

L’Oréal has not confirmed the financial details of the planned acquisitions, other than that the deal is currently under discussion and subject to approval from regulators.
The purchase is expected to be completed later in the year.
L’Oréal’s prestige perfume has seen strong growth in recent years with the commercial success of Lancôme’s La Vie est Belle (one of the best-selling fragrances in Europe and the US), Yves Saint Laurent’s Black Opiumand Giorgio Armani’s Sì Passione and Acqua di Giò Absolu.

The firm’s Luxe Division grew by 10% in 2018. However, the brand owner has seen its mass brands category struggle last year, particularly in Western Europe.





Clarins Introduces Super Restorative Rose Radiance Cream



Clarins, the French family cosmetic company was founded in 1954 by the medical student Jacques Courtin-Clarins, who died in 2007. In 1957, Courtin-Clarins developed a new approach to face and body treatments and created a few luxury products based exclusively on plants. Clarins has used its unrivalled expertise in the field of beauty to offer consumers the safest, most effective products that deliver real results.

We don’t promise you miracles, only results

Jacques Courtin-Clarins, founder Clarins

New from Clarins is the Rose Radiance Cream, a super-restorative cream that revives skin’s radiance. Just like the rest of the Super Restorative Collection, the new Rose Radiance Cream is designed for skin experiencing age-related hormonal changes. Envisioned as a beautifying treatment, the cream replenishes, exfoliates, and beautifies the skin to reveal natural, rosy radiance.


The Rose Radiance Cream draws on the redensifying properties of three natural ingredients to help illuminate the complexion, even out the skin tone, and smooth skin texture. Roselle (Hibiscus sativa) acids gently exfoliate and smooth skin. Harungana extract redensifies the skin to counteract sagging, while Furcellaria helps protect skin from environmental damage and pollution. Smooth and supple, well nourished skin, results in a more even complexion and a brighter glow.

Clarins Super Restorative Rose Radiance Cream is designed for skin experiencing age-related hormonal changes. It combines three gently exfoliating and radiance boosting ingredients and seven plant extracts.

In addition, the cream contains four different types of light-reflecting pearls (each reflecting a particular light tone) to give the skin a beautiful glow. The soft pink cream is infused with Vitamin C to leave a healthy glow and, with prolonged use, even out the skin tone and make the skin brighter.


The Clarins Super Restorative Rose Radiance Cream is suitable for all skin types. It is available in a 50 ml jar. The product is currently available across the UK. Launching worldwide in August 2019.

Clarins unveils new beauty farm in the Alps


Maison Clarins has set up home in the Alps for the next stage of its beauty developmental strategy. The French beauty brand has acquired 200,000 acres in the region, which it has dubbed ‘Le Domaine Clarins’. The purpose of the natural farm and laboratory is to carry out biodiversity studies and cultivate plants for use in the brand’s skincare and makeup formulas.

As a scientist, I am very vigilant about the quality of natural ingredients and the way these ingredients are extracted. Le Domaine Clarins gives us a chance to obtain the best ingredients while preserving the environment.

Dr. Olivier Courtin-Clarins

Le Domaine Clarins — which sits at 4,500 ft altitude, meaning it benefits from an optimal microclimate for growing vegetation — is a long-term project that will allow the company to grow seasonal plants in an organic, natural fashion in pollution-free soil. According to a press release, the company’s long-term goal is to facilitate ‘an owned 100% field to jar production’.

Le Domaine Clarins will also feature a ‘Collection Garden,’ a space dedicated to new plant experimentation, where scientists will endeavor to find new properties to enrich the brand’s beauty offerings. Research findings will be added to the Clarins Herbarium, which already contains 250 plants.

Clarins has its roots in the natural world — the brand was founded in 1954 by Jacques Courtin-Clarins with a line of 100% pure plant extract oils. But the company isn’t the only major beauty player to be seeking inspiration from the world of permaculture lately: in January, it was announced that Garnier had teamed up with the ecological NGO Fondation GoodPlanet to work with French farmers on developing agroforestry in tandem with the French Agroforestry Association.

Multi-masked with Clarins SOS Masks


I have been known to go to bed wearing nothing but a face mask  – ok, ok, and a few drop of serum – and for good reason! It’s a great way to give your skin an instant pick-me-up with the benefits healing plant extracts and ultra-rich oils offer.

One face mask will not sort all of your skin issues. I have quite dry and dehydrated skin but am prone to a few breakouts on my chin. A hydrating mask won’t do my chin any favours so what do I do? Apparently Multi-mask!

Have you Multi-masked yet?

There are a plethora of face masks on beauty counters right now and one French Maison has three to choose from. The latest trio of face masks is from Clarins.

Clarins have created a new range of masks to compliment your current skincare routine. Plus, you can add your skin boosters for that extra lift to leave you looking your best. Just because I added the Energy Booster to my SOS Comfort mask, doesn’t mean that you’ll do the same, after all, our skin has different needs. For dry, dehydrated or problematic complexions, here’s how the latest SOS Mask range works.

Soothing – Clarins SOS Mask Comfort


Protective skin care that calms and soothes the driest skin. An ultra-rich balm in a nourishing mask that softens and comforts the skin in just 10 minutes.

For deeply nourished skin that is soft, supple, radiant and feels great. The wild mango butter melts into dry skin instantly, soothing any redness and the tight feeling associated with dehydrated skin. I love the scent and the nourishing boost it delivers in just one application.

Clarins-SOS-Mask-Comfort-Banner2.jpg How should Clarins SOS Mask Comfort be applied?

  1. Layer the mask onto clean skin
  2. Apply to face and neck, avoiding eye area.
  3. Leave on for 10 minutes.
  4. Gently smooth excess product onto skin – don’t forget lips and back of your hands – or remove with a cotton pad soaked in Toning Lotion.


Hydrating – Clarins SOS Mask Hydra


A moisturising bath for thirsty skin. This ultra-refreshing gel-cream mask helps skin find its ideal moisture level in just 10 minutes

The brand calls this a ‘moisturising bath for thirsty skin’ and it’s all due to a plant extract is known as the ‘life plant’ or ‘air plant’ called kalanchoe pinnata. With incredible regenerating properties, it grows in Madagascar and has the ability to reproduce and regenerate during a drought. So in a skin care formulation, it boosts moisture levels – fast.


How should Clarins SOS Mask Hydra be applied?

  1. Layer the mask onto clean skin
  2. Apply to face and neck, avoiding eye area.
  3. Leave on for 10 minutes.
  4. Gently smooth excess product onto skin – don’t forget lips and back of your hands – or remove with a cotton pad soaked in Toning Lotion


Balancing – Clarins SOS Mask Pure 


Skin care that brings out the radiance in mixed to oily skin. This non-drying, absorbent purifying mask with a creamy texture removes impurities and tightens pores in just 10 minutes.

Acne-prone, blemished skin will love the willow herb that is packed into this mask. It soothes redness and helps reduce shine by curbing oil production. Mattifying and soothing, it’s a great weekly treatment for helping to correct breakouts.


How should Clarins SOS Mask Pure be applied?

  1. Layer the mask onto clean skin
  2. Apply to face and neck, avoiding eye area.
  3. Leave on for 10 minutes.
  4. Rinse face with cool water to refine pores.
  5. Follow with a cotton pad soaked in Toning Lotion

Clarins-SOS-Masks-GIF2.gifThe selection of plant extracts to target skin concerns is bang on – The French Maison does this since 1954! The packaging is fun and colourful and these masks are a wonderful way to give your skin an extra boost of nourishment or much need exfoliation. You’ll be wowed by the results.

Clarins Men Booster Bronzant Selftanning Booster

Clarins Men Booster Bronzant Selftanning Booster Visual

When Maison Clarins introduced Radiance-Plus Golden Glow Booster, from day one it was, and still is, a huge succes!! Not only because the very easy way how to use, but because of the most beautiful ‘natural’ result. No matter what skintype, no matter women or men….

Self-tanning for men? Is that even considered acceptable? Well, the answer is a simple one: yes, Why not? In the decades I work in cosmetics (also for the Clarins company) I sold 65% of selftannings to women and around 25% to men! So if you want to improve your looks and get that masculine, bronzed glow, then YES, you should definitely self-tan. There’s nothing bad about taking care of your skin. Safer, faster and more affordable than ever, faking the tan has become the way to get bronzed. With this in mind, French skincare specialist Clarins extends its range of Boosters to include the Tanning Booster for men, a product that could, hopefully, stop guys from stealing their girlfriends’ skincare products!

Clarins Men Booster Bronzant Selftanning Booster Bottle

The brand new product, launching March 2017, named ClarinsMen Booster Bronzant Selftanning Booster, promises to help you look like just came back from holiday, every day, all year long. This is the first ClarinsMen self-tanner designed to work with any facial moisturizer. The energizing, invigorating formula is composed of no less than 99.8% of natural ingredients, including energizing Sweet Grass, refreshing and moisturizing Aloe Vera, and calming Gymnema Sylvestre, also known as Miracle Fruit. The tanning complex is made of optimal concentrations of DHA and Erythrulose, offering a natural finish that adapts to all skin tones and can be intensified as desired.

A super-simple application is specifically tailored to the needs of men. The Tanning Booster is used the same way as any other Clarins Booster – a couple of drops of the serum combined with your regular moisturizing product is all it takes to get that sexy bronzed complexion. Initially, you’ll need about 3 drops of the booster to rekindle the glow. Just before reaching your desired tan, reduce the dosage to 2 drops, and then maintain the look with just one drop daily.

Clarins Men Booster Bronzant Selftanning Booster Bottle Open.pngTo get the best results, exfoliate your skin with the Exfoliating Cleanser before application of the Booster. This will remove dead skin cells and promote an even, luminous tan. Don’t forget to gently wipe your beard and eyebrows with a damp tissue and wash your hands after each application! Proven effective 12 hours after application.

The Clarins Men Booster Bronzant Selftanning Booster is available in certain European countries, where it retails at 26.50 €26.50 for a 15ml bottle.
