Yup – it’s true. Clarins’ cult Beauty Flash Balm just reached the big Three Zero, meaning it’s a whole five years older than me!*
To celebrate, the brand’s given it a blingtastic makeover with a bedazzled cap from (who else but) Swarovski, the beauty industry’s go-to when they want to add some sparkle to er, anything. €35’s the damage for the limited edition crystal-studded tube but despite this product’s cult status as a pre-makeup dewey-iser, a skin drink and a pick-me-up, it really divides opinion.
So, given its momentous birthday, what I want to know is do you think Flash Balm is still worth the hype or are there products out there now that do what it claims – but do it better?
