Most Helpful Positive Review Brighter, smoother more even-toned skin ASAP
I am a skincare junkie and have had a regular skincare routine for probably the last 15 years. I am very particular about the products I use and if I don't see my skin reaping the benefits, out goes the product. So in comes @Clarins, a brand known for having great ingredients with great products. I have never used any of their moisturizers until now. Just like many other products I have tried in the name of skincare, I will review it in hopes that it will help others make that important purchase to keep their skin looking years younger!
As many of you already know (and if you don't, you should), your moisturizer is the final step in your skincare routine, but before primer, if you use one. Today, and for the next 3 weeks, Clarins #Extra-Firming #Night #Cream is that final step for me. I noticed after squeezing out a tiny bit that I needed to shake the tube because otherwise it can come out ever so slightly runny. It's thick but doesn't make your face feel sweaty like most thick creams do with my skin...unless you put on too much that is. My skin actually soaked it up quite well and I used approximately a flat dime-sized amount. About 5 minutes after application, the only place I could barely tell anything was there was the apples of my cheeks, but that's where I put much more product at night due to dryness and uneven texture. Absolutely no complaints about how it feels on my face. I love that my face doesn't feel sweaty underneath.
Day 2: I put on a little too much. I've included a picture of how much I used.
Day 5: I went to the website to take a closer look at their products and found some videos about how much and how to apply the lotion. It's called the #ClarinsApplicationMethod, and I have been using their method from about Day 5 until now and will continue to use it. It helps the product to sink in and is a good reminder to get your neck and to be gentle.
As much of a day and night skincare junkie that I am, there were about 4 times during the period from 12/27 and 1/19 that I missed this final part of my routine. It's because I always wait until everything else has sunk in to put on my lotion and occasionally I forget to go back and finish. But even missing a few times, I am super impressed with @Clarins Extra-Firming Night Cream, at least what I could tell with approximately 3 weeks of use. With the results I obtained almost immediately, I'd say it's a pretty good indicator of what is to come. I have had absolutely no adverse reactions, only great looking skin. I am not kidding when I say that by the next day of using this moisturizer, my skin was more even-toned and brighter. After 2 weeks of using my skin was noticeably smoother. Impressed is an understatement. *I have stopped using foundation.* I have just been using my favorite primer with a little blush. I am truly impressed and give this product a definite 4 1/2 stars (1/2 a star off because of the price since I want both day and night and because it gets a little runny). This moisturizer is a staple that I don't want to be without. If one of my friends wanted to bet on this product, with me betting they could change their skin for the better, making it brighter, more even-toned and smoother, with almost immediate results, I would definitely take them up on it.
p.s. I'm not a fan of photos of myself posted on the internet, especially with no eye liner or lipstick. So please forgive me lol.

#skincare #Clarins #moisturizer #nightcream #firming #smoothskin Regardless of how I received this product (a small deluxe sized sample - that is all) my opinions are my own. I am definitely opinionated and express my honest opinions for a living. I can guarantee that if a product was bad or just had a few issues, whatever that may be, I would say so.
Most Helpful Critical Review Reliable Night Cream
This product provided a good, sensorial experience as the texture was fast absorbing yet left a bit of a glow on my skin that's always welcomed before bed. It was a peaceful few minutes I spent massaging this into my skin, and once finished I was met with an even looking face that was still there upon awakening. While I didn't see any earth shattering results, I will say that if you're not into overly heavy night products and you want something straightforward and fast absorbing, this is for you.
I was given a this product complimentary for testing.

I've used other Clarins products, and decided to try this one for better wrinkle prevention. Made my skin look great, but after about a week I woke up in the middle of the night with a very swollen throat and tongue. Turns out I'm highly allergic...

Noticed a difference right away, firmer skin, reduced pores, smoother skin
Excellent softening results
LSC2 from Oh
This is a great product that I have used for many years. I turned 71 this year and I honestly can say my skin looks as good as it did in my fifties. Keeps any lines softened and healthy looking and I wake up looking good!

I have been using it for a few years and still love it.

Tillie from undisclosed
My skin feels and looks so much better since I have used the extra firming night cream and the extra firming serum. I left Clarins for a while for Dior but I am so glad to have come back to find and use the extra firming range. I am in my 60s and felt I needed a little extra help!!!!
Love it !!
Ann67 from Dc
I love this product , I always buy it and I love that I can pick a bunch of samples to try every time I purchased
They changed the formula
Sg123 from California
I've been buying this night cream for a couple of years. I credit the Clarins creams with keeping my skin dewy and moisturized through my accutane treatment. Never once did I have the flaky skin that's supposed to happen during treatment. I give it 3 stars because the latest bottle I bought has a different formulation from prior bottles. It's not as thick. The consistency is more like the daytime moisturizer. I hope they bring the old formula back.

While I use double serum each night, I began to add the night cream to my evening routine. My skin appears hydrated after application and in the morning.

I've replaced another night firming creme with this one, to see if this one is better - and within a week I noticed my forehead wrinkles softening.

I bought this product two month ago and have enjoyed this product. I like the feel of richness and the smell of the fragrance. I also feel the improvement of my skin

Clarins is the best. It smells amazing. It never clogs my pores. It keeps the fine lines and dryness away. And it even gives skin a lift.
Not for me
Sherri67 from Anderson SC
I bout this a few weeks ago after using the multi active. It's terrible. Felt too greasy on my skin and didn't absorb well. Because it don't absorb well it left my face feeling dry. Going back to the multi active.
Bring the old formula back!!
Balu from Houston
OMG what have you done?! I have been using this night cream for years and absolutely loved it! The new formula is thick and makes my eyes puffy... I'm so disappointed! Please bring the old formula back!! :(
Kariu from Chatfield MN
This product although tightening my skin did not make it feel more dry. The redness was also reduced in less than one month
Great night cream!
Mill from Boston
So happy I tried this night cream. I have been dealing with fine lines and wrinkles lately and although I can't tell yet if it's making a difference, I love how my face feels and looks in the morning. It's smooth and looks primed. I'm hoping with time I will see a difference with my fine lines. Either way I'm thankful I got this product complimentary for testing and review.
Clarins Extra Firming Night Cream
RoRo from Texas
Due to the slight thickness, it doesn't take much to moisture your skin. My skin thats normally dry would feel soft and smooth every morning. I love the smell! Since using this cream, I rarely have breakouts. I love this product.
RobertaA from Portsmouth Virginia
I received this product complimentary for testing.from #Influenster & absolutely loved it! Made my skin super soft.
Maria T from Boca Raton, FL
I received a complimentary sample of this product from Influenster for review purposes. I very much like the formula. It is very hydrating without feeling overly heavy and absorbs quickly. My skin feels protected all night and is soft and smooth in the morning. I would definitely recommend this product. Over the two weeks I've been using it, my skin's texture and elasticity has greatly improved. I will continue to use it and am considering buying a jar once my sample is finished. Give it a try!
LeahO from Pa
this is an easy to use product that is lightweight on my skin
lalagirl550 from Hartford, CT
I felt this was average as a moisturizer. It was a bit rich but I didn't see that it did anything different than what any other moisturizer does.
This is a fantastic cream
ksgirl1200 from Kansas
I got a sample (deluxe size) of this cream. It was the first time I've ever tried it. My skin is rather sensitive, but I was able to use the night cream on my neck and chest with no problems at all. It's a light and lovely cream, not greasy. It's quite nice.
Carolinagal67 from Kinston, NC
I received the Clarin Extra-Firming Night- All Skin Types from Influencer, to try. I have been using it religiously, every night, before bed, since receiving it. It has made such an amazing improvement in my skins appearance. I'm so grateful for the opportunity to take part in this experience. Thank you.
Love this cream!

I was sent this product to review. After using the product for about 6 weeks at night time, I have noticed that my skin is firmer and plumper, especially around my jawline. It is hydrating and has a nice scent. I highly recommend it!
My skin loves this cream
Louise from Chicago
I received this product complimentary for my honest review of it through Influenster. From the very first time I used it I noticed a difference. I woke up and my skin felt hydrated and softer than usual. After one week of us there were major changes. My skin not only being softer it felt tighter and my wrinkles were diminished. I appreciated being able to test for a full month and really seeing what it would do for me. I can honestly say it lives up to the name skin firming.
