Back in the Fifties, Jacques Courtin-Clarins formulated the first contouring and firming gel based on plants. It was groundbreaking stuff - and Clarins was born.

Fast-forward 60 years and the brand is still at the forefront of cutting-edge technology, with products as diverse as Double Serum - powered by a cocktail of 20 potent anti-ageing plant extracts - and Body Lift Cellulite Control - enriched with plant extracts to tackle orange-peel skin. Whatever your skin needs, Clarins has the plant prescription for you. So why not try one of their three Limited Edition Intro Kits (from £20), they are the perfect introduction to Clarins for all newcomers to the brand.

Which plant is your skin type?

Inca peanut, used in the Clarins HydraQuench range, is a hydrating hero that will protect dry skin, relieve tightness and boost radiance. The HydraQuench Intro Kit will also boost radiance.

Kiwi gives fine lines the heave-ho with its anti-ageing properties and helps restore your skin's elasticity. Find it in the Clarins Multi-Active Intro Kit which will also help to nourish and moisturise skin.

Green banana, a key ingredient in the Clarins Extra-Firming range, will tighten facial contours and fight crow's feet. Try this Intro Kit if wrinkles are your beauty bugbear.

These kits each contain four trial-size essentials to suit different skin types and are available in store only. Visit to find your nearest stockist or call 0800 036 3558 for more info.
