The Acacia tree grows in warm climates, characterized by its thick, gummy leaves and the dry, sharp thorns on its bark. Parts of the tree have been used in paint, perfume, folk medicine, and paper. Also, it's a giraffe's favorite snack.
At Clarins, we use tiny Acacia Micro-Pearls in our Instant Smooth Perfecting Touch. They help fill and smooth away fine lines, and leave an imperceptible veil that makes flawless makeup easy. (Our fans call it "Instant Photoshop." We agree.)
Have you tried it yourself yet? Now's a good time: We're giving a free mini jar with the purchase of any full-size moisturizer. Go here for the details.
