    great post! i have never tried clarins beauty flash balm but after reading that superdrug do a cheaper alternative called natural high radiance balm i tried that instead. its fab!! leaves skin really soft and smooth, great on its own or under foundation. rrp is £4.99 but its usually on offer though so you get an even better bargain!
