Want smooth, perfected skin as the perfect base for your makeup? The Clarins Lisse Minute is the product you need in your arsenal.
The award-winning makeup primer, Instant Smooth Perfecting Touch from Clarins, is the perfect combination of make-up and skincare. With an ultra-light, ultra-smooth texture it glides on skin, leaving an imperceptible veil on its surface, filling in and smoothing away the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and pores.
A silky-textured, oil-free, pale pink paste which, upon application, forms an invisible veil over the skin. It is suitable for all skin types and can be used alone or under foundation. The very light texture ensures that skin is not overloaded and is able to breathe. Your skin is left ‘foundation ready’.

A small, red glass pot with a plastic screw-top lid. It comes complete with a spatula so you can decant the product hygienically, much better than having to stick your fingers in the pot. The best thing is, there’s zero waste. The wide neck means every last remnant can be scraped from the jar. (Note: Due to the consistency of this formulation, a pump dispenser or tube was not a practical packaging option.)
How It Works
When applied to the face, Acacia Micro-Pearls expand in response to the natural moisture levels in the skin and plump out imperfections, resulting in a visibly smoothed complexion. Soft-focus pigments give the skin a subtle glow, and Vitamin E and plant extracts offer anti-aging protection. The primer can be used all over the face, but you can also just apply it to the areas that you need it, you’ll find you won’t be ‘wasting’ as much product then and you’ll get more for your money in that sense.
