Clarins Instant Smooth Perfecting Touch Foundation Primer Review | Reduces Pore Size & Smooths Skin

Clarins Instant Smooth Foundation PrimerI respect Clarins for the change they made to not test any products on animals, and to try and create less waste as possible to help the environment.

Clarins instant Smooth Perfecting Touch is formulated to reduce pore size and smooth skin for a good foundation base. It is also designed to refine lines and wrinkles.

An added perk to this primer is that it promises to reduce pore size. Not many other primers offer this and it is a very good factor to have. Reducing pore size stops so much makeup clogging the pores, therefor coursing less breakouts, in theory anyway!

I would not recommend this for people with oily/acne prone skin as it is oil based, so could course some users to breakout.

Users Conclusions


  • Smooths skin
  • Moisturizes
  • Reduces pore size


  • Jar packing (cream can get contaminated)

  • Expensive

To Sum Up

Overall most users really favor this product and would purchase it again. They like the benefits of reduced pore size and the hydrating effect it has on the skin.

There are a few people who find it overpriced. It does cost $32 for a small jar, so I can see where they are coming from. However, most fans have said it does spread well and much much is needed, hopefully it should last a while.

Unfortunately most patrons found that it did nothing to help reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. So Maybe this primer would be better for the younger generation that don't have those worries yet!
