Iris Toning Lotion
Whenever I walk around the city on a blazingly hot summer day, I inevitably end up with melted foundation and smudged mascara running down my face. As soon as I get home I wash my face immediately, but somehow the mascara smears and foundation never fully come off with soap and water. A cotton ball soaked in Clarins Toning Lotion with iris and aloe removes any remnants of the day in a single swipe. It also tightens pores (without the use of alcohol) and smells vaguely of lilies (kind of like those huge dazzling floral arrangements at expensive upper east side restaurants like Payard). I also love the bright sea-green color that looks very chic on my bathroom sink.
