Clarins Instant Poreless Primer May Be A Replacement for Instant Smooth Perfecting Touch In Better Packaging

Clarins Instant Poreless Primer ($30) and maybe it’ll be just the right replacement for a beloved fan favorite, Instant Smooth Perfecting Touch. Instant Smooth Perfecting Touch has been a Clarins fan favorite as far back as I can remember but it does come in a jar which is a little awkward to use at times. This new Instant Poreless Primer comes in a tiny tube so maybe, just maybe, it might be a nice replacement for Instant Smooth and in way better packaging too!

This primer not only minimizes pores and imperfections while helping to primer for makeup but it also provides a smooth, matte finish to absorb excess oil using organic strawberry treat fruit extract. It promises a lightweight formula that can be applied under or even over makeup to reduce shine and create a flawless finish while extending the wear of your makeup!

I’m curious how similiar it is in texture to Instant Smooth!

Clarins Instant Poreless Primer is available now.

    Are they really going to discontinue Instant Smooth Perfecting Touch? If so I need to stock up like crazy.

        Oops, I think I misunderstood your post. Thought you were saying that the company was replacing Smooth Perfecting with Instant Poreless. Lol! I’m glad it was just a misunderstanding on my part.

          oh no! not that I know of anyway as I really like instant smooth too! I use it under my eyes! I hope it isn’t being replaced! I doubt it as it is a long standing product with Clarins that is well loved 😀
