As a loyal follower of Clarins beauty flash balm, I was interested to see how the Elemis illuminating balm fared against my trusted flasher! I love the Clarins Flash Balm, especially in the summer - when you have a gorgeous, glowing tan, you can step outside with a quick spritz of balm and feel like you’ve got all you need on for the day. Now I can’t say that this would be the case in the winer unfortuantely, but the Elemis balm certainly gives Clarins a run for its money. It actually has a much lighter consistency than the Clarins balm but with just as much impact. It has a luxurious, velvety finish, a subtle floral aroma and feels wonderful on the skin.

With rich moisturising qualities that keep the skin hydrated and an anti-ageing blend of orchid, noni and acai, this brightening balm not only gives a boost of radiance, it also nourishes and hydrates the skin. Either use as a daily moisturiser, or as a base illuminator before applying foundation.
