New In: Beauty | Clarks Botanicals

(Clark’s Botanicals Ultra Rich Lip Balm, $19 | Clark’s Botanicals Intense Radiance Mask, $72)

Clark’s Botanicals is a company established in 2005 that offers a wide variety of natural skin care products developed by Dr. Harold Clark, who has knowledge of both Western medicine and homeopathy. The main ingredient in all Clark’s Botanicals products is something called Jasmine Absolute; this is an oil that helps to rebalance the skin. Derived from nocturnally-blooming flowers, this extract is also antibacterial, anti-inflammatory and immuno-stimulating. It works to calm and heal a broad spectrum of skin types, from young to mature, oily to dry, and normal to sensitive.
With a passionate consumer following, Clark’s Botanicals has recently made its latest move into select, prestige retail distribution with updated packaging and a launch family of thirteen paraben-free treatment products.

Let me start with the highly popular most sought after product from Clark’s Botanicals the Clark’s Botanicals Intense Radiance Mask.

A brightening face mask.

Promotes collagen production, brightens skin, reduces redness, and treats acne.

Green algae extract (stimulates collagen and calms redness); white genepi plant extract (antibacterial, anti-inflammatory, and antioxidant); algae extract (tightens skin and retains moisture).

The 30-minute white-clay mask is thick and tacky, so it requires extra effort to rinse off. It smells a little like Play-Doh.

After one use, my skin looked brighter, my ruddy spots had faded, and my fine lines(very very tiny fine lines) were a smidge less noticeable.

Next in line is Clark’s Botanicals Ultra Rich Lip Balm.

WHAT IT IS: A lip balm, duh. A.. balm.. that.. goes on.. yes, you guessed it, your lips.

WHAT IT DOES: A rich-softening balm that features a natural formula that deeply hydrates, soothes and protects. The formula delivers intense, long-lasting hydration. Vanilla planifolia and jasmine extracts add a delectable flavor that will have you re-applying – even when you don’t need to.

KEY INGREDIENTS: Shea butter, aloe leaf extract, jojoba, sweet almond oil, and marine collagen microspheres (that act like miniature water reservoirs).

HOW IT FEELS/SMELLS/LOOKS: The clear non-sticky texture is similar to a gloss-not a thick balm but more liquid consistency, it smells pleasantly light and floral.

WHY I LIKE IT: This exceptional lip balm is intensely hydrating and nourishing. My chapped-pruned up little lips became soft providing immediate relief. Plus the formula has a slightly sweet taste which I love.
