Skin Care Review: Clarins Eye Contour Balm

by Gala


relatevely big tube (20 ml compared to 15 normally)

no visible effectivness

This cream is ok, not more. It has no noticeably nice smell, it's easy and sanitary to use unlike creams in fancy but useless glass packages. This product requires some effort when you apply that, because the texture is slightly heavy. You won't feel any immidiate effect, you'll just get simple skincare that similar to let's say L'oreal. On the package you'll see the recomendation to apply preferably in the evening, but it's not the strong restriction, this cream goes ok as a base of make up. I was confused by this reccomendation thinking that's proof of effectiveness, like this cream works all night and next morning your wrinkles go away. No, probably that's just becouse of a heavy consistency. All you wrinkles will be in the same condition, but not likely worse. If this is what are you looking for, that's not bed product. I tried this product in version for dry skin and for all types of skin. The first is havier (Clarins call that drawback rich), but they both are not effective.

If you need just simple skin care that's great
