How can I look younger with Clarins? Clarins Paris Lift -Affine Visage serum contour parfait

Written by Deanna. P

I have been familiar with Clarins for years & although I had known it was a French company, I did not know the luxury products produced were centered around plants. Clarins is known asa high end cosmetics company.  It was founded in 1954 by Jacques Courtin-Clarins and introduced to the US in 1981.   In 1987 Clarins sunscreen took off in America.    They currently provide skincare, fragrance, and cosmetics worldwide through department stores & select pharmacies.  I tried Clarins serum which comes in 1.6 oz/50ml and retails for $81.00.  It can be used on all skin types which include Normal, Oily, Combination, and Dry skin.  

The product addresses & tries to correct your skin’s loss of firmnessand elasticity.  

The combination of it’s plant based ingredients help to redefine your facial features.  

The ingredients & what they do,  include:

Guarana Extract: Promotes a slimmer-looking face. 

-Zerumbet Ginger Extract: Visibly reduces puffiness. 

-Kaki Extract: Helps prevent skin slackening. 

-Oat Sugars: Visibly firm and smooth for a lifting effect. 

 

The product was tested on 79 women & the satisfaction rate of the women on the results were in the high 80 percentile.  They agreed their faces appeared more defined, firmer, lifted, & prettier from the front & side profiles. With results like this, I was excited to try.  I used the product for about 2 weeks & definitely noticed a difference.  The recommended way to use it was to pump some into your hands and rub together to warm.  Apply to face and neck, sit down, & put head down and drain. There is a short video online to watch so you can mimic these directions.   You should apply the serum mornings & evenings. My face definitely looked lifted & more defined.  I plan to continue use to see what happens after a couple more weeks.   My only complaint about the product is the scent was a little strong for me.   I don’t love the smell of a strong perfume & this is what I got from it.  

 I definitely do think the price is high, but it works so this was not an issue.  This product is a great treat for your face instead of getting a monthly facial.  

 

You can purchase it at Sephora.  Check out the details here:
