My first Clarins

It might be hard to believe, but this Multi-Active Eye Revive cream is the first Clarins product I’ve ever owned.

A need for an eye cream and sheer determination on my part to finally own something by Clarins were the major factors in picking this.

This year, “The Anti-Wrinkle Year”, I started getting fed up with the lines under my eyes, and the way that makeup would settle into them. I do realise that there are greater problems in the world, but I thought, “Hey, why not add an eye cream to my skincare routine?”

I’ve been using it for the past few months now and so far so good. I’m the worst person in the world to judge the effects of these kinds of creams on myself, so I can’t really comment on how well it works, if at all, as an “Early wrinkle correction cream,” but it does keep the skin under my eyes hydrated. And I keep telling myself that perhaps it’ll work psychosomatically – that if I believe it’s working it will!

It’s a light formula that absorbs quickly, and it has a very slight scent. You’d really have to sniff it to tell. It hasn’t caused any reactions with my sensitive skin.

I didn’t see it in the UK, so I think it is produced specially for the Asian market.

Would I buy it again?

Umm, I’m not sure.

It was a bit pricey, as Clarins products tend to be, and although it’s a nice cream and I do like it, I don’t think it’s my HG eye cream. I can’t help feeling that there is a better one for me out there. The fact that it comes in a pump bottle also worries me a little, since I’m not sure whether I’ll be able to dismantle it and get every last drop out. (Yes, I’m the kind of girl who cuts open the tube of toothpaste to get everything out. Sad as it sounds, that’s something that I got from my mum and it’s here to stay.)

Which eye creams do you like? I’ll be looking for a new one soon and suggestions are most welcome!

  1. I used Clarins for many years and I was quite happy with them. But I never know, as you say, how well the cream is working on me. I am looking for new skincare and I really don’t know what to try next. I’ve tried most of the big names… actually Origins is the one I like the most, but the nearest stockist is quite far from me and I don’t shop online (archaic I know – but I’m afraid I’d over indulge!).
