|Get ready to renew your skin with Clarins Extra-Firming Skincare!
by Alison Blackman
The Groundhog has spoken and Spring will be here (eventually). It’s a time of renewal.
This is true for your skin too, and there’s Clarins Extra-Firming Jour, Nuit and Jour SPF 15 to help handle the renewal of your skin, and to help reduce wrinkles.
These Extra-Firming products are Clarins’ latest and greatest, with something they call “youth reservoirs.”
These are clusters of young fibroblasts with a high generation capacity. When you age, fibroblast regeneration slows down, resulting in skin that’s less firm and “elastic.”
The Kangaroo Flower:
Clarins has been inspired by the Kangaroo Flower. It’s bright and eye-catching. but it also does a fabulous job of regenerating itself. It might just help to regenerate your skin, too.
Plant Based Ingredients:
These new skin powerhouses have 85% of the key ingredients that are plant-based. Half are organic (so now, you know).
Also included: (New) Organic Mitracarpus extract (enhances firmness and elasticity).
(New) Organic Desert Date extract( targets dark spots to even skin tone).
(New) Hydrated Silica of Moonstone extract (promotes youthful-looking skin).
Organic Leaf of Life extract (boosts the skin’s natural hydration)
Shea Oil & Organic Shea Butter (nourishes and hydrates skin).
Organic Oat Polyoses (forms a tightening film at the skin’s surface to provide an
Acerola Seed extract (enhances radiance).
Clarins’ exclusive Anti-Pollution Complex, enriched with pure plant extracts (African Ebony, Furcellaria, Alpine Sanicle, Lampsana), protects skin from indoor and outdoor pollution.
The silky and rich cream is packaged in a pink frosted glass jar with a pristine white top. It’s very elegant, but do be careful that pets and little ones don’t knock it over.
I didn’t see a spatula or applicator in the box, but perhaps I missed it. If you don’t have an applicator, use a Q-tip because you risk contaminating the cream if you stick your fingers in it.
The cream has a light and pretty floral scent and it absorbs very quickly leaving a silky feel. This is particularly good when your skin is on the dry side.
Choose Your Formula
As with all skincare, the best products are the ones that suit your skin type and Clarins offers 5 different products geared to all skin types and dry skin.
The one that I tried is the Day cream with SPF 15. Actives are 3% Avobenzone, 9% Homosalate and 6.5% Octocrylene. SPF 15 isn’t really going to take the place of a higher rated sunblock, but every little bit is helpful.
According to Clarins in a test of 107 women over 2 weeks, 91% agreed that their skin felt regenerated. 89% felt that their skin was more firm, and 87% felt it was tighter.
Even better, these are under $100: Extra-Firming Day- $87.00 & Extra-Firming Night- $93.00.
They are well worth the money and they’re available at your favorite Clarins counter or online at www.clarins.com
