Radiant & Glowing Skin With Clarins Bright Plus

Clarins Bright Plus Review

We all know bright, even-toned and luminous skin doesn’t just happen overnight.  Oh no, it takes months of sticking to a good skincare routine before you can see really noticeable results.  Uneven skin tone, pigmentation, acne scarring, and dark marks are a few skin-related issues most women (and men) face these days.  Fortunately there are a number of skincare products out there that can help solve this problem.  I’m not particularly ‘lucky’ (if one could call it that) when it comes to my skin, I’ve had many skincare problems over the years.  Adult acne.  Dry & flaky skin.  Highly sensitive skin.  Extremely oily skin.  And these days I’m struggling with something that is a real pain in my ‘you-know-what’: Sun spots and dark marks.  As much as I loved listening to Baz Luhrman’s ‘Wear Sunscreen’ song when I was in high school, I never really took him up on his most important piece of advice.  I hardly ever wore sunscreen, and now I’m paying the price…

These days I have a good and consistent skincare routine (except for those periods of time when I’m testing out new skincare products) and I have received so many questions on what my skincare routine currently looks like, so I think I will dedicate a full blog post to that soon.   A blog post containing all my holy grail skincare products, along with some of my personal skincare tips.

As for today’s blog post, I’ll be introducing you to a new range of products from Clarins that I have been testing out for the past 2 weeks.  The final results aren’t in as yet, because I like to test products for at least 4 to 6 weeks before writing up a detailed review.  Think of this as a type of “This is what I’m testing at the moment, and here are my first impressions” blog post.  So far the results aren’t very noticeable, because I’ve only been using this trio for 14 days – but I have high hopes for the end-result because I’ve already noticed a couple of things.  I’ll cover my latest findings in this blog post, plus I also have ‘BEFORE’ and ‘AFTER’ photos to share with you.

About 3 or 4 years ago I decided to start investing in my skin, I should have started A LOT earlier (in my early twenties) but I never really understood just how important a good skincare routine was.  I saved up my money, did a lot of research, and eventually bought a handful of skin care products to suit my specific needs.  Clarins was actually one of the first brands I decided to invest in, and their Double Serum was the very first high-end skincare product I ever bought.  Back then their Double Serum retailed for R695,00 and although it was very difficult for me to hand over my money to the sales assistant, I’m happy I did because I really loved that little serum!

Clarins South Africa recently launched their brand new Bright Plus Tri-Intensive Brightening Serum, which forms part of their Bright Plus range.  According to Clarins, the Bright Plus range of products contain brightening plant extracts to help stop melanin in its tracks before it can be released into the skin’s surface.  These exclusive products gently fade away hyperpigmentation, age spots and discolourations for a bright, even-toned complexion.

What is hyperpigmentation?  Hyperpigmentation is usually a darkened area of skin caused by the overproduction of a pigment in the skin known as melanin.  The main causes of hyperpigmentation are overexposure to the sun, picking at the skin, hormonal changes (i.e. pregnancy), certain medications such as antibiotics or hormone treatments, inflammation, or it could just be hereditary.

Although there is no ‘cure’ for hyperpigmentation, you can treat the condition by lightening the appearance with the help of a targeted skincare routine.  First things first, it is extremely important to use a sunscreen (if you aren’t already) and look for key ingredients in brightening skincare products i.e. Ascorbyl Glucoside (which is much more stable and longer lasting than Ascorbic Acid), Alpha Hydroxy Acids (AHAs) such as Glycolic-, Citric- & Lactic Acid, and Azelaic Acid.

Clarins Bright Plus

The secret to being good to your skin is finding products that address your specific skincare needs, and giving your skin a treat at least once a week (face masks are my favourite at-home skin treatment).  As mentioned, I am currently testing the Clarins Bright Plus range, and these are the only lotions and creams I have used for the past 2 weeks.  I’m only halfway through my testing period, and will provide my final results towards the middle of June.

The Clarins Bright Plus range combines 20 years of research with the discovery of a precious extract from the Acerola fruit (a tropical cherry, which is very high in Vitamin C).  The result?  A range of powerful products that help to reduce melanin production, fade dark marks and provide clarity and a healthy glow to the skin.

Here are my thoughts on each of the 3 products in the Bright Plus range:

Clarins Bright Plus Tri-Intensive Brightening Serum


First up on my beauty shelf is the Bright Plus Tri-Intensive Brightening Serum, and this is actually the product I am most excited about – not because it’s the new baby in the Bright Plus family, but because the ingredients list is so impressive.  One of my beauty goals in life is to have even, naturally radiant skin.  I long for the days when my skin was plump, clear and it had youthful glow.  The innovative Clarins brightening serum rebalances the 3 dimensions of a perfect complexion – contrast, colour and luminosity.  I can hear your thoughts, you’re thinking: “Wait, what!? Contrast?!”  So, in essence it fades away certain contrasts in the skin i.e. dark marks, age spots etc. because it contains Acerola Seed Extract.  It also rebalances skin colour to brighten up the complexion, and it infuses luminosity leaving you with even, naturally glowing skin.

Another active ingredient in the Bright Plus Tri-Intensive Brightening Serum is Ascorbyl Glucoside, mentioned above as an ingredient you should look for in a brightening skincare product.  It’s a form of Vitamin C that is combined with glucose, and when applied to the skin this powerful antioxidant breaks down into pure Vitamin C which inhibits the synthesis of melanin.  And then we also have Citric Acid as an ingredient, which is an AHA (mentioned above) that sloughs off dead skin cells, speeds up the process of new cell turnover and in turn boosts collagen synthesis.  Almost like a natural exfoliant, but without the scrubbing – so it helps to alleviate the appearance of uneven tone and texture, small wrinkles and dark spots to brighten dull skin.

The stunning opaque bottle comes with a pump dispenser (which I love), this keeps the active ingredients safe from UV exposure and oxidation.  The serum itself is a milky lotion with a very subtle botanical scent.  Clarins is known for their plant-based skincare, and I’ve become quite a fan of the soothing herbaceous scent.   I like to apply 1 pump of this serum with light pressing motions before my day- and night cream, and I find it absorbs quickly without any greasy or sticky residue.

Did you know?  The skin on your neck can be thinner than the skin on your face, and just as prone to changes in texture, pigment, and elasticity.  Always remember to apply your skincare products to the neck as well, as it shows signs of aging quicker than the rest of your face.  Ahem…noone wants a wrinkly, saggy turkey neck.  Am I right, or am I right?

Clarins Bright Plus Brightening Hydrating Day Lotion SPF20


I have also been using the Bright Plus Day Lotion, which is a very smooth fluid that literally melts into the skin.  This lightweight daytime lotion contains an SPF20 to help protect the skin against harmful UV rays (known to cause hyperpigmentation), and also contains an active ingredient called Sea Lily Botanical Extract, which helps to correct uneven skin tone by gently fading away dark spots.  Clarins enriched Bright Plus Day Lotion with other active ingredients i.e. Alchemilla Extract, Biotin, Raspberry Extract and White Tea Extract to reduce the production of melanin and protect the skin against free radicals.

What I really like about it is that it gives the skin a beautiful semi-matte finish, with absolutely no oily or sticky residue.  It also doesn’t interfere with the texture or finish of any makeup applied on top, and leaves my skin feeling nourished, plump, and looking fresh.  Every morning I apply it to my face and neck with gentle pressing motions (after cleansing, toning & the Bright Plus Tri-Intensive Brightening Serum) and then leave it to absorb before I start with my makeup routine.  The Bright Plus Day Lotion hydrates the skin, and since it is a lightweight lotion, it’s perfect for normal, combo, oily and perhaps even dry skin types if combined with the serum.  It clarifies the skin, all while adding a natural glow to the face.

Clarins Bright Plus Brightening Repairing Night Cream


I’ve also added the Bright Plus Night Cream to my night-time skincare routine.  This has a rich formula to help soothe and refresh tired skin, all while slowing down the production of melanin during the night.  It contains 2 active brightening ingredients, Sea Lily and Daisy Extract, to help repair any damage caused by UV rays and environmental stressors.  Even though the Bright Plus Night Cream is incredibly moisturising, it fortunately also feels quite light on the skin.  If there’s one thing I can’t stand, it’s when a night cream leaves your skin looking greasy – this one from Clarins gives the skin a healthy-looking, glowy finish, but definitely not oily.

During the colder months my skin tends to be quite dull and dry (especially on my cheek area) and I find that after using this night cream my skin not only feels, but also looks hydrated and glowing in the morning.  In a way it calms the skin and absorbs relatively quickly (it can feel a little tacky for a few seconds but that disappears after a couple of minutes).  I apply Bright Plus Night Cream to my face and neck as the 4th step in my evening skin care routine – first cleanse, then tone, then the Bright Plus Tri-Intensive Brightening Serum, and then my night cream.  It instantly smoothes and plumps the skin, and I’ve noticed I wake up with my skin feeling pampered, as it adds a serious dose of nourishment.

There’s only one thing that I think Clarins can improve upon with this specific product – the jar packaging.  I will always prefer skincare products that are housed in opaque glass bottles with a pump dispenser, especially in the case of brightening products.  Jar packaging causes Vitamin C to degrade once the lid is removed, and that will most definitely have an effect on how effective the product is in the long run.

A small amount of the Bright Plus Night Cream goes a long way and it looks almost untouched after 14 days of use.  So even though this product might be a bit pricey for some, I have a feeling it’ll be a while until I even have to think about stocking up again.

Below are Before & After photos to show you exactly what my skin looks like at the moment after using the Clarins Bright Plus Tri-Intensive Brightening Serum, Bright Plus Day Lotion SPF20, and Bright Plus Night Cream for 2 weeks.

Eeeek!  Let me tell you, it took a lot of guts for me to take these photos and post them up on the blog for the world to see.  These photos have not been edited at all – niks, nothing, nada.  Side note: I’m 33 years old.  Just putting that out there…


Clarins Bright Plus Before

I took both photos at the same time during the day (11am in the morning), but obviously 2 weeks apart because I wanted the lighting to be as similar as possible.


Clarins Bright Plus After

I’ve been using the Clarins Bright Plus range for less than a month, so I can’t really report back on any major changes in the pigmentation areas yet.  There’s a very subtle healthy glow to my skin after using this for 2 weeks, and have also noticed some of the lighter spots on my upper right cheek have started to fade ever so slightly.  Overall my complexion is starting to look more radiant, and I’m really hoping that the products will continue to break down and fade my pigmentation.

The ultimate test, for me, will be to see if I reach for my sheerer foundations in the future.  If my skin looks and feels fresher and more radiant, I won’t need the coverage of a heavier foundation.

I know the products in the Clarins Bright Plus range might seem a bit pricey, but investing in your skin is very important – think about it this way: You only have one face for the rest of your life, you might as well take care of it.  Spending that little extra on skin care products is a great investment.

If you’re on a tight budget, and you can only afford to invest in one of the products in the range, then I would highly recommend the new Bright Plus Tri-Intensive Brightening Serum – it totally gets my seal of approval!


♥  Wearing a good sunscreen of at least SPF20 and avoiding sun exposure is the most important step in preventing hyperpigmentation.  Dark marks darken up with ultra violet exposure, so don’t go thinking getting a bit of a tan will blend everything together, because the dark areas will darken even more.

♥  Darker pigmentation is also in dead skin cells, so exfoliating regularly will slough off the buildup and will help to minimise hyperpigmentation.  If you have dry, sensitive or mature skin, it is best to exfoliate once a week.  If you have combination or oily skin, exfoliating 2 to 3 times a week will be beneficial.  Exfoliating cleansers gently buff away the darkened top layers of skin, I like using an all-natural product like the Tous Les Jours Le Exfoliator Beads (which can be added to any cleanser to turn it into an exfoliator).  A cleansing brush (like the Clarisonic) is another great option, it gently exfoliates the skin to make it smoother and brighter.  Remember, getting rid of the dead surface cells will also help your skin care products to penetrate deeper, making them more effective.

Speaking of exfoliators, did you know microbeads (those teeny tiny non-biodegradable plastic balls that give a scrubby effect to cleansers) is actually bad for the environment?  Once you rinse them off your face they end up in rivers and oceans, and fish end up ingesting them (plastic is toxic to fish).  Then think about the fact that someone might end up eating that fish – it won’t have an immediate effect BUT imagine the damage of ingesting plastic for a long period of time.  You want to avoid exfoliating scrubs / cleansers that have ‘polyethylene’ listed in the ingredients list – rather opt for natural alternatives i.e. coconut husks, jojoba beads (like the Tous Les Jours one), or fruit acids.

♥  Last but certainly not least, melanin (the pigment in dark spots) moves deeper into skin over time, so it’s easiest to erase when it’s still relatively new.  Start early (as soon as you see the first signs of hyperpigmenttion) and it may be nearly gone in 2 or 3 months.

    Thanks for an honest opinion. I want to know if investing in retinol serums is a wiser investment in the long term? How do you feel about retinol?

    • Nausheen
      1 June 2016 / 21:41

      Great question – is retinol really what it’s hyped up to be?
      I am also tempted to try but am afraid of peeling etc.
      How would you rank the clarine range against the nimue range . I just bought the nimue serum and eye cream . Spent a lot – and now o am not so sure

      • Luzanne
        3 June 2016 / 18:41

        See my comment for Ayesha above, Nausheen. You can definitely expect to see a blog post on Retinols soon! 🙂

        To be honest, I haven’t used a heck of a lot of Nimue products…so it wouldn’t be fair for me to compare the two. They did send me a skincare kit a few months ago, but I still need to get round to giving it a good test run. 😉

        • Nausheen
          15 June 2016 / 19:45

          Thanks. Will keep an eye out for the post on retinol. Please advise on product and starting strength and method (is it safe to use around the eyes etc) for beginners.

          • Luzanne
            19 June 2016 / 16:48

            Will definitely cover all the points you mentioned above, but I can already tell you that in most cases Retinol is NOT safe to use around the eye area. 🙂

    • Luzanne
      3 June 2016 / 18:38

      Your comment made me smile, because I’m actually working on a blog post about Retinol – what it is, who should use it, what you should look out for, product recommentations etc. So, I will DEFINITELY be doing a blog post on that soon. 🙂

      • Luzanne
        3 June 2016 / 18:43

        P.S. So weird that the smileys disappeared… Someone else commented the same thing on my CATRICE blog post earlier this week… I’ll have to investigate why it’s happening, because as far as I can see my smileys are showing?

    • Luzanne
      3 June 2016 / 18:42

    I tried the range last year and I really liked it. The new serum sounds amazing though! I have been sticking to my Retinol and AHA, alternating between the two. I stopped using Retinol for a while and my skin freaked out, clogged pores, dull skin, everything bad!

    • Luzanne
      3 June 2016 / 18:44

      The serum is the star of the show for me – definitely recommend it! 🙂

    2 June 2016 / 11:32

    I know this is an awful question to ask, but my Kiehls is finished now and I was planning to repurchase…how do these compare to the ones we used during the trial last year? Seems similarly priced.

    I love the sound of this, and there’s definitely a glow, even though it’s only been 2 weeks 🙂

    • Luzanne
      3 June 2016 / 18:51

      Haha!! I love how you know it’s an awful question to ask, but you still ask anyway! 😉 😉

      If I’m honest, I haven’t found a Kiehl’s serum that I really REALLY like i.e. I’ll repurchase it time and time again. For example, I prefer the Clarins serum when compared to the Clearly Corrective Dark Spot Solution Serum from last year). So, in terms of that the Clarins Bright Plus Tri-Intensive Brightening Serum definitely comes out on top! I haven’t tried a brightening night cream or day from from Kiehl’s yet, so can’t really tell you which one I prefer.

      In saying that, though, I haven’t tried any normal day- and night creams from Clarins – and I have used (and loved) the Ultra Facial Cream from Kiehl’s. So depends on what you’re looking for… Brightening products? Or hydrating products? Or anti-ageing products? Let me know, and I’ll make recommendations. 🙂

      • 18 June 2016 / 08:36

        And I love how you find the perfect way to reply..very diplomatic…Witout bashing any brand 🙂

        I don’t have any lines yet, but I’m very interested in preventative products, especially around the eye area. Then hydrating products for combination skin. You’re a star to research this stuff for us.

    I actually just finished my serum last night and have been wondering what I should get next. I think I’ll try this one from Clarins, I can see a difference in your skin. Not really lightening of the dark marks, but you skin looks more fresh and bright.

    P.S. You have great skin for a 33 year old.

    • Luzanne
      3 June 2016 / 18:56

    Sal beslis hierna kyk!

    Wat dalk van ‘n artikel oor verskillende sonblokke? Ek het al Nimue s’n gebruik en dis fantasties, maar moeilik om te kry in die platteland. En mens wil nie iets gebruik wat jou laat blink en olierig voel nie!

    I used the full clarins bright plus range about 4 years ago when I was pregnant with my second daughter and it helped keep my skin clear and melasma free. With my first pregnancy my skin went two shades darker and I had that pregnancy mask. With the second nothing. I have pics if you are interested to see. I also used clarins for 15 years until I changed to something else. Hope you get good results.

    • Luzanne
      9 June 2016 / 15:47

      Wow – that is so hectic!! (the part where your skin went 2 shades darker)

      Which products are you using now? Why did you move from Clarins to a new brand? I’d love to know.. 🙂

    3 June 2016 / 18:44

    Hi Luzanne. First off, thank you for baring it all and showing us your before and after pics! I also suffer from pigmentation…aaarrrggggggg. Have the serum and have tried a travel-size of the day lotion. I love the serum but the day lotion didn’t feel rich and hydrating enough for me even though I don’t have dry skin. I would love to try the night cream from this range though. Looking forward to your final thoughts…please post more photos of the results then. All the best.

    • Luzanne
      9 June 2016 / 15:51

      Thank you so much for leaving such a kind comment – I really appreciate it. 🙂 What skin type do you have? Maybe your skin is a bit more dehydrated (not dry) than mine, maybe that’s why the day lotion felt a bit too lighweight. A lotion will always be less nourishing and more lighweight than a moisturiser, that’s why lotions are more suitable for combo or oily skin types. If you have normal or dry skin, then a moisturiser will be best.

      I’m actually posting another photo of my 1-month results within the next few days (on social media) – so be sure to keep your eyes peeled. 😉

    Hello Thanx so much for your post. It was informative and clear. Your 33 year old skin looks great. We the same age and I am also beginning to suffer from dull skin. But your 2nd looks like that “pregnancy glow”! At the moment I’m using Nivea perfect and radiant for the same purposes as your Clarins. I noticed my skin is hydrated and I noticed and immediate glow after applying. So it’s a nice cheaper option for the ladies with a tighter budget. But I like the idea of adding the serum to my routine. Are u using a Clarins product around true eyes as well? Thanx again for your bravery and post!!

    • Luzanne
      9 June 2016 / 15:55

      My pleasure, Wardah – thank you so much for the compliment. 🙂

      I don’t think I’ve used the NIVEA Perfect & Radiant skincare line yet, but I’m happy to hear you’ve seen some great results using that. I’ll definitely keep it in mind.

      No, I am not using a Clarins eye cream at the moment. My eye cream of choice lately is the Dermalogica Multivitamin Power Firm – it’s such a great product and also contains Vitamin C (amongst other ingredients). I love using it in the morning because it makes for a great primer for my concealer too. 🙂

    Thanks for the heads up on the new serum. I noticed Red square was having a Clarins GWP and I’m definitely going to get the serum and maybe the day lotion ( I used it before and it was lovely!).

    • Luzanne
      9 June 2016 / 16:04

      You’re welcome, Geraldine. 😉 I saw the promo on the Red Square website – I was VERY tempted to take advantage of it, but then it slipped my mind… I just checked and it looks like the promo ended on the 5th of June.. 🙁 Hopefully I won’t be a slowpoke next time! 😉

  23. 4 June 2016 / 17:39

    I’m sure we’re all kicking ourselves for not listening to that grad-speech-turned-hit-song by Baz! I’ve just hit my 30s and only starting to take investing in good skincare products seriously. Better late than never I guess!

    I’ve always loved everything I’ve used in the Clarins line. This seems to be a beautiful set of products. I am constantly fighting hyper pigmentation to keep my complexion looking looking bright and consistent. I did try IPL Photo Therapy without much luck but I’ve only done it once so far.

    Beautiful blog! Glad I found it. The photography is stunning! I just got a new camera and haven’t started using it yet. I need to choose a lens. what are you using for your beautiful photos?

      Thank you so much for the kind compliment, Janine – I use a Canon 50mm lens. 🙂

    Goeie more!
    Lees nou jou blog oor Clarins Bright reeks. Ek is nou 35. Veg al Pigmentasie van my swangerskap 5 jaar terug. Is Clarins in jou opinie veral die serum goed of enige ander voorstelle! Het al Neotetin gebruik maar niks vir my gehelp. Vele ander produkte ook!
    Kan so met jou vereenselwig, wil net een dag net n BB room gebruik en Marcara. Sal so ongelooflik wees.
    Baie liefde en groete,
