Clarins Men Skin Difference is a product designed for two purposes:
1. To soften facial hair and slow down new hair growth, which is intended to make shaving much easier
2. To moisturize the skin and revive dull skin
I bought Skin Difference a few months ago for £26.50 from Boots, after seeing an advert in Men's Health. I had shopped around but all Clarins products are the same price in each store, so I opted for Boots because you get Advantage Card points also.
The box Skin Difference comes in is quite large for the size of the product, which is a small pump action container, with two chambers for each of the two liquids, each chamber containing 15ml. £26.50 is expensive for moisturizer, but I think it is worth it.
Skin Difference comes with a couple of instruction books in multiple languages which you should read. However if you can't be bothered the main point to take away is that you should apply this at night, just before going to bed.
The substance itself is not a cream, more like an oil or gel. It is clear and colorless in appearance and smells OK. You don't need to put much on; a couple of pumps will do.
In terms of results, Skin Difference does make a difference. It does make shaving slightly easier, and does make hair softer. Skin looks revitalized and you face looks fresh.
Overall, for me, Skin Difference is worth it. Although it is expensive, the fact it slows down facial hair growth is unique and gives this product a boost over its competitors.
However this product assumes that you shave in the morning and that you will apply Skin Difference at night. If you don't do these, you will have to change you routine to suit, otherwise Skin Difference 'will not be as effective'.
