Clarins has a new gift with purchase going on at Nordstrom right now with several travel-sized skincare sets to choose from as your gift. With any $85+ purchase you can pick one of three gift sets with promo code SUPER, FIRM or MULTI (enter the code at checkout). There’s a step up as well, if you spend an additional $15 you get a deluxe travel-size Tonic Body Oil (1 oz.). It also comes with a small red travel bag.

The gift options include:

Hand & Nail Treatment Cream (1 oz.)
Beauty Flash Balm (0.53 oz.)
FIRM comes with:
Extra-Firming Day Wrinkle Lifting Cream (0.53 oz.)
One-Step Gentle Exfoliating Cleanser (1 oz.)
Moisture Rich Body Lotion (1 oz.)
Toning Lotion with chamomile (1.7 oz.)
MULTI comes with:
Multi-Active Day Early Wrinkle Correction Cream (0.5 oz.)
Instant Eye Make-Up Remover (1 oz.)
Beauty Flash Balm (0.53 oz.)
Moisture Rich Body Lotion (1 oz.)

I stopped by my local Nordstrom to purchase some items and went with the Super Set since I’ve received a lot of recommendations to try the Hand and Nail Treatment. I thought this would be a good time to try it in a mini. What I bought for the gift and step up:

I’ve been searching for a good face sunscreen that is lightweight, fluid and doesn’t turn my face white.  I usually use the Chanel UV Essentiel SPF 50 which I adore but decided to try something new. I’ve been researching different sun screens and most of what I’ve tested in the store leaves a white cast on the skin. However the Clarins UV Plus HP Multi-Protection Day Screen SPF 40 does not. It has a lightweight fluid feel and leaves the skin with a slightly matte finish. I’ve been using this a few days and like that there’s no sunscreen scent, that it’s very fluid and feels weightless on the skin. There are two size options, the 1 oz is $25, and there is a 1.7 oz that is $40. I opted for the larger size since it’s something both me and my husband will probably share.

The next thing on my list was the Clarins Eclat Minute Instant Light Natural Lip Perfector. I was debating between these or the new Instant Light Lip Balm Perfectors (in a twist up stick). I decided to try the squeeze tubes first since there have been so many raves. I picked up Rose Shimmer 01 which is a light iridescent baby pink that is a really smooth glossy baby pink. It has a soft vanilla scent that isn’t overpowering. It leaves the lips feeling plump and glossy but not tacky.

The third thing I picked up was the Water Purify One-Step Cleanser. I opted for the one for Normal/Combination Skin because of the fresh clean minty scent. It has a soothing feel on the skin and leaves it feeling clean without any residue. The rep emphasized it’s not a regular cleanser and won’t be sufficient alone, but is ok to remove makeup on lazy days occasionally or to refresh the skin.

You can find the Clarins gift with purchase online and in stores at Nordstrom right now, while supplies last. If you order online be sure to enter the code at checkout to redeem your gift. Codes are SUPERFIRM or MULTI.

Do you have any Clarins favorites? I have my eye on those new lip balms, but I’d love to hear about what else you’ve tried and love.

Many thanks to Nordstrom for sponsoring this post. All items were purchased by me. For more information refer to my disclosures.

    • I hope something similar arrives in the UK too! The minimum buy is a bit higher than I'm used to for a gift with purchase offer, but the sample sizes are really good!

  • Wow ! That's quite the gift with purchase! So many products. I have been wanting to try Clairins for a while. That tonic body oil looks really cool and the shade rose shimmer 01 that you got looks beautiful.

    Besides the Hand & Nail Cream (which is my all time favorite Clarins product), I also really enjoy Clarins Moisture Rich Body Lotion and the Eye Contour Gel. The Moisture Rich Body Lotion smells lightly of orange blossoms, which I love, but the scent dissipates so I am able to wear a fragrance along with it with no issues. I keep a tube of the Eye Contour Gel in my fridge at home and my mini fridge at the office and pat a little on whenever I am looking puffy or extra tired. It has a lot of caffeine and helps both issues immensely, especially if tired.

    I also use the Beauty Flash Balm that came in the GWP whenever I am flying. I know my Clarins rep says most people use it as a primer, but you can pat some in over makeup to stay hydrated and dewy. I have found if I do one application for every hour in the air, I have significantly fewer breakouts and issues upon landing.

    Thank you for the heads up on the GWP! Off to order from Nordstrom now…

    • Hi Kari, thanks so much for your Clarins recommendations. I'm looking for a new eye cream and there are so many it's overwhelming. I'll definitely look into the Clarins Eye Gel, sounds great!

      Good to know about the Beauty Flash Balm, I know there are instructions but I wasn't entirely sure how to use it. I'm excited to give it a try!

  • I've never tried their hand and nail cream but I've been wanting to try the beauty flash balm!

  • What an amazing gift with purchase! Great post! I will be trying these products soon!

  • I keep meaning to pick up a few Clarins bits, so i'll definitely be calling in to take advantage of this! I love Clarins Beauty Flash Balm and their eye makeup remover.

    I use the Clarins sunscreen and love it! I hate the smell and scent of sunscreen on my face but the Clarins one is super lightweight and doesn't smell like sunscreen.
    Right now I am trying their Multi Active Night Youth Recovery Cream and so far I like it!

    • Thanks for the recommendation Caitlyn. I too hate that sunscreen smell although I've put up with it for a long time. I am so happy I discovered the Clarins one because it actually smells quite good πŸ™‚

  • I love their lip products.

  • I love their Gentle Exfoliating cream, such a delight to use it.

    They do the best giveaways if you are need of products. I am anxious to check out the new lip oil (must be on the way here) that I am hearing about from some of the UK bloggers!

    • That lip oil looked tempting but since I just splurged on a few from YSL I decided to pass and give some skincare a try instead. Might give them another look sometime later though πŸ™‚

  • Such an amazing gift! Lilly xx

    Yesterday I bought a clarins concealer and the lady gave me a lot samples- I received foundation samples in diffrent shades and formulas, the face oils with the matching tonic ( they are great! ),
    creams for the face and body, self tanning items, cleansers, and the liquid peeling. I was very thankfull and she told me: No problem, we have a lot and we like to give a lot! I am so exited to try the Extra Comfort Foundation and the True Radiance Foundation.
