Clarins Toning Lotion with Iris and Lotus Face Treatment Oil to combat breakouts!

I have been getting a lot of breakouts lately and it seriously sucks. My skin has always been prone to acne and thus I get  extremely pissed off when I get even one pimple. So one day I was chatting with a friend and she told me she had this problem of breakouts lately as well and she has been using Clarins products which is very effectively for her. I'm sold, I'm so trying it!

The 2 products that she recommended are:-
1) Clarins Toning Lotion with Iris
2) Lotus Face Treatment Oil

Both products are targeted at oily, combination skin which purifies and tightens pores. Method is usage is extremely easy as well.

1) Drip 2 drops of Lotus face Treatment Oil on palm

2) Pour Clarins Toning Lotion with Iris onto palm (I usually pour in approximately 20cent coin size of toning lotion)

3) Rub this 'mixture' gently in your palm to warm it up and apply over the face.

These 3 steps are to be done after cleansing. After applying the toning lotion and treatment oil, you are done. No need for moisturiser or what not, except for localised pimple treatment cream / gel or eye cream. Super simple!

If you are a fan of Clarins and is using Clarins Truly Matte Pure & Radiant mask with pink clay, these 3 steps that I just mentioned can be performed after cleansing and before applying the clay mask. After washing off the clay mask, repeat these 3 steps again. You skin will feel very clean and refreshed without the feel of tightness.

I have been using the applicattion of Clarins Toning Lotion mixed with Lotus Treatment Oil every night for a week and my breakouts has subsided substantially. You may give this a try if you have breakouts as well. Results may vary. Good luck!


  1. This is exactly what I need :-) So thank you thank you!

    1. Melissa, glad that this might be helpful for you. Would love to hear your thoughts :)

  2. Hey Ruby, wow this sounds amazing! I have mixed oil with moisturizer, but not a toner! My new discovery for combating breakouts is Effaclar Duo. It's stronger than K, so definitely not something I can use on my cheeks. On my T-zone and spots however, it works FAST!

    1. I used Effaclar K previously but I do not see it as effective on me as this combination duo. probably because K is not strong enough?

  3. Hey Ruby,
    Lately I have been hearing good things about Clarins. I just bought the same oil as yours last week and so far had used it twice. My experience was really good! It's moisturising!
    Glad that these products works on you dear! :D

    1. Meryl, I have been using Clarins pdts on and off as part of my skincare regime and i really like it. This oil is pretty good, moisturising and yet suitable for combi skin.

  4. Interesting combi! Thanks for sharing Ruby! :)
