To The Rescue

To The Rescue

The keyword for women-of-a-certain-age is radiance.

Radiant pretty much sums up how we want to look (and feel).

So here’s a little dose of glow to add to your makeup routine: the just-launched, SOS Radiance Primer by Clarins (30ml). It blurs imperfections, brightens the complexion, and catches the light—the very definition of radiance!


Made with organic sea lily extract, the light-textured formula combines both skincare and cosmetic benefits: it hydrates for up to 24 hours,balances uneven skin tone and texture, primes the skin for make-up, extends the wear time of your foundation, and is formulated with an anti-pollution complex to protect from environmental damage.


In a convenient, travel-friendly tube


with a mess-free pump dispenser. Thank you, Clarins.


00 Universal Light is a shimmering-white formula that delicately adds an immediate lift and healthy finish to the skin. For a general skin brightening boost.

Top Tip: Focus the application on the high points of your face for an enhanced luminous look.

The Clarins SOS Primer collection targets:

  • Dullness
  • Fatigue
  • Imperfections
  • Dark Spots
  • Redness
  • Sallow Complexion


Some days I can check more of these boxes than others, but everyday, I want to look radiant.

I’ve generally been applying the Radiance SOS Primer to my entire face, adding a touch of concealer here and there, and skipping foundation entirely. But you can wear the primers however you like: under foundation, mixed into your foundation, or if you have a few skin concerns, you can use use them together for a customised face cocktail.

Now that SOS has come to the rescue for the face, I’m practising exuding radiance.

But that’s an inside job.
