Clarins White Plus HP Clear Softening and Peeling Gentle Renewing Lotion Review

Softening and Peeling are two words i thought i would only hear in a cooking show (First we ‘soften’ the tom-ah-toes and then we peeeel them!) . So when i received this sample size of Clarins  Clear Softening Peeling Gentle Renewing Lotion  in my blisscovered box, i stared at it long and hard and asked it “What are you supposed to do lotion? Show me your tricks” . It just lay there, flat on its back staring back at me and snorted “Figure it out for yourself supposed beauty blogger”!

So i tried to, and from the limited information i could find on the internet and on the leaflet inside i figured that this is basically some what of a night treatment that is supposed to renew the skin cells and your inner glow ! It says the ideal usage is twice a week and this is what it claims:

  • Intensively renews, eliminates dead skin cells, brings softness and tightens pores
  • Helps Balance and improve the tone of even the most fragile skin!

The lotion inside is this clear gel like liquid which immediately gets spread on to your face very easily, so a tiny bit goes a really long way. The first time i put this on,it kind of freaked out because i could smell the alcohol inside it. I was worried it was going to make me shed layers of skin or something (You know like… snake skin ) !! But its really quite gentle, there isnt any peeling that happens , and once its on your face you feel just a tad bit sticky. Im not saying you turn into glue,  but if you touch your face you will notice just a bit of stickiness. The important part though is, after using this for about a month- i feel like my face glows more, it looks more even in tone, and feels softer and more radiant. There is something about when i wake up in the morning and see my face, the apples of my cheeks have that glow on their own. (People say its just the pre-bridal glow, but really i think its just Clarins working its softening peeling magic).  I also feel like areas of darkness in my skin, and certain spots seem to have reduced and look less prominent! In short – im kind of loving it!

Another thing i like is that its non drying, in fact it hydrates my skin to some level which is surprising for a peeling agent . My only reservation is that it kind of adds another step (very expensive step mind you) in my night skin care routine because it cannot replace my night cream or oil, plus im not sure how good this is for the skin in the long run.

Overall Verdict: A

Price: Rs 2000 for 125 ml

Recommendation: The Clarins Softening Peeling Gentle Renewing Lotion is a clear gel like liquid meant to be used overnight that has totally worked for me ! I feel like my skin glows more, feels softer and radiant and more even in tone with continued usage (twice a week) for more than a month! The price tag is expensive, and it adds a somewhat unneccessary step in my night time routine, but i might get this full size when feeling indulgent!

Whoever said the best things in life are free….was definitely lying!
Btw, how do you use it? On top of the creams?


Mehak March 10, 2012 at 9:48 am

Currently I se it under creams bt I’m not too sure!


Nirah March 10, 2012 at 11:57 am

before the creams, as far as I could gather from Google baba.
much like a toner actually

mehak… i got the clarins cleanser(15ml) with my bliss box…its kinda good but then nothing special…whatelse we can expect from a cleanser :(

But this seems nice (grass is greener :D)


Mehak March 10, 2012 at 9:49 am

Hehe ya I know there is a limit o ow good a cleanser can get


Nirah March 10, 2012 at 9:14 am

Yes it is good. I got pretty much the same results, I use it twice a week. I have a bit left in the bottle. Blisscovered is selling it for 1800 (and another 500/- less with voucher if you get a Clarins product). So its not the price that bothers me because a little goes a long way.

Its just that I dont feel a great need for it. My skin is alright if not great. And there isnt that luxurious feel to it that makes me reach for such a product and make me add another step to my routine nor are the results that miraculous (hey a girl can dream of flawless skin :P).


Mehak March 10, 2012 at 9:50 am

Yes that’s what keeps me frm buying it… It adds a step in my skin are routine tht I can probably do without


Pooja@IBC March 10, 2012 at 11:32 am

hmm..I’m not sure about trying this, sticky stuff on my face bothers me no matter what promises of glowing skin it might hold

i bought the clarins white plus hp cleanser last night after my MUFE thingy and Im so so happy with it took 3/4 of Goa’s stupid tan away. My face looked like the old me. didnt dry felt lovely. i used the same night cream sample with it. great stuff. that was last night gonna try it now too with the day cream sample and serum samples….plus there was light darkening here and there with sun spots so lets see….she said it doesnt work from within but at least eliminates all the anti pollutants that are stuck in ure face for the day!


mehak March 12, 2012 at 10:18 am

Yay ! Which sunblock did u use in Goa?
You know, i tanned the LEAST mongst my friends only because of Neutrogena Dry Touch SPF 50…


pavani reddy March 13, 2012 at 1:58 pm

this sounds magical…(minus the price tag of course)


Azra August 12, 2012 at 10:25 am

This is the best peeling lotion one can have !
Awesome results, tough it takes times but yes in the first week of using it – you will see 100% results of fresh, radiant and glowing skin.
Use it only once or twice a week with morning or night and leave it on.
If you are going out, you can also apply face powder after leaving this lotion on the face for a minute.
Must buy!
