Your Exquisite Beauty Moment for Chinese New Year!

Just as in embroidery, Clarins is a story of tradition, valuable materials, excellence and love, all woven into one and shared with women of all ages, walks of life and backgrounds. So many beautiful values weave a connection between precious ingredients, heritage and strong ties with women.

Clarins

Precious Ingredients

What silk is to embroidery, nature is to Clarins. They've infused the beloved Double Serum (R1 250 for 50ml) with 21 exceptional plant ingredients, which is what makes it an anti-aging icon and absolute must for any skincare routine.

Strong Ties With Women

Embroidery is a way to express beauty, which is the same purpose Clarins' Instant Light Lip Comfort Oil (R335) has for women. This lip care solution is infused with all the power of plant oils to nourish and enhance the beauty of the lips.

Heritage

In the same way embroidery is passed down, since 1954, Clarins has used its expertise and innovative spirit to design legendary creations like the Blue Orchid Oil (R590), with its 100% plant extracts. This face treatment oil tones and restores radiance to the complexion.
