Clarins Lisse Minute review smooth, perfected skin as the perfect base for your makeup? The Clarins Lisse Minute is the product you need in your arsenal.

Instant Smooth Perfecting Touch from Clarins is an award-winning primer and is the perfect combination of make-up and skincare.

Not only does it help smooth and minimise the look of fine lines and pores, but it gives the look of perfectly smooth skin, and provides a gorgeous base for makeup application on top.

The Formulation

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'.

The Packaging

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.


Instantly calms skin, hydrating, anti ageing, suits every skin tone and skin type, lasts all day

Expensive product, heavy jar, not particularly hygienic if you don’t use the spatula it comes with

Bottom Line

This product is the perfect marriage of make-up and skincare, providing you with a spectacular beauty effect. It’s magical melting, invisible texture works to perfectly smooth the skin by leaving an invisible veil over its surface. Wrinkles, fine lines and pores are virtually unnoticeable once this wonder-product is applied, giving you a flawless complexion for your foundation.

Skin is left smoother, moisturised and even-toned, a little of this product goes a long way and it’s something you’ll keep going back to, we can’t imagine not having this in makeup routine now.
