Clarins Spring 2015 Collection Event: Christopher Truffa’s PA + ALL the Key Products & Tips!

Clarins is a line of French skincare and cosmetics still made by the founding family in France. I was invited to Bloomingdales, South Coast Plaza for a private event just for bloggers. I met the fabulous Christopher Truffa, the Clarins spokesperson and had a one on one discussion with him I did get a bag full of great goodies! I learned all about them and lots more from the new Spring 2015 skincare and cosmetic collections.

Disclosure: While I was provided samples and products to test drive, it doesn’t affect my thoughts or evaluations of the products. I already loved Clarins products before I got there and have used them for many years. LOVE LOVE LOVE!

If you aren’t familiar with Clarins Beauty line, it’s a line created by a French family and still is to this day. It’s based on plants and natural extracts. Here is a portion of an interview with Dr. Olivier Courtin-Clarins from the Clarins site

1 // DOES THE EARLY CLARINS MOTTO “PLANTS AND NOTHING BUT PLANTS” APPLY TO THE BRAND TODAY?

Dr. Olivier Clarins:

Clarins has always favored using natural ingredients. Today, if given a choice between a synthetic ingredient and its plant-derived equivalent, we always choose the plant.
Several hundreds of plant species, from all over the world, are used to create our products.

2 // WHAT CAN YOU TELL US ABOUT THE RESEARCH PERFORMED BY CLARINS?

Dr. Olivier Clarins:

Clarins dedicates a substantial amount of revenue and resources to skincare research each year. The scientific discoveries made possible by this research help in developing new products and improving current formulations.
Additionally, the company has been assigned a number of patents since its inception, a testament to its excellence in advancing the science of skincare.

3 // CLARINS WAS THE FIRST TO DEVELOP COSMETIC PRODUCTS THAT PROTECT THE SKIN AGAINST POLLUTION. PLEASE TELL US ABOUT THAT.

Dr. Olivier Clarins:

Urban pollution, often made up of gas, industrial emissions, cigarette smoke and corrosive particles in the air, constitutes a permanent danger to the skin. Since the skin is in constant contact with the environment, it is vulnerable to premature aging, and a loss of radiance and suppleness.
Clarins was the first to take notice of this phenomenon. After years of research and rigorous testing, the first “Anti-Pollution” Complex was formulated in 1991.
This complex is based entirely on natural plant extracts and today many Clarins day-time skincare and make-up treatments incorporate this high-performance ingredient.
