Rated 4.29 out of 5 stars
As a nearly-40 year old with maturing skin, this cream ticks most of the boxes for me. It feels emollient without being too heavy, has a lovely soft scent that gives a nice application experience, & helps plump up fine lines & wrinkles that can be accentuated by makeup, which I love to wear. I do find that daytime use will leave me just a bit shiny by end of day, but this is most creams for me - if I use a gel cream, I'll end up with dry patches, and I'd rather have a bit of shine that can be blotted off than dry patches that mess up my makeup. I love the glow this gives. Also, my favorite way to use it is at night, as a follow up to the Double Serum - they are a stellar combo for glow and radiance! This was gifted by Clarins for my review.
I guess I should have read the cream description better, however I was so excited to try the cream and after putting it on, my whole face was shimmering. Like I put highlighter all over my face. That's not what I need in a moisturizer, I leave any shimmer to my bronzing powder. Also, the shimmering was opaque and it made my face pale, even my bronzing powder, which subsequently added more shimmer, couldn't help with adding any color. I threw away the box and now am stuck with it.

This product caused an itchy blotchy reaction on my face - very disappointed with the experience. I've never had that reaction to any skin care product before it should carry a warning.

I honestly can't say if it will make a difference in the long run as there is only about a weeks worth of product in the kit but so far I like it. This serum feels rich and the lotion is very hydrating. Overall I would absolutely continue purchasing this to see what kind of results I get

Works great. I have slight rosacea and am 62 with normal skin. This is not greasy but moisturizes and soothes beautifully.

Extra-Firming Energy is my favorite daytime moisturizer ever! I apply in the a.m. after I wash my face and apply toner and serum. My face feels instantly refreshed, energized and soothed all at the same time. Great product!

I use Clarins and have for years- but this product is the absolute worst! firstly it broke my skin out so bad with light rash and then exploded to full blown pimples and spread. I had to get steroids and Rx cream to make it go away. Used again after finishing meds- thinking it may be something else- but broke out again. Tossed the full expensive Clarins jar out. Don't know what's going on with Clarins- they used to be a great skin care company.

This is the best day cream I have ever used. I switched to this after getting a sample with another Clarins product. My skin tingles and glows when I put this on.

My moisturizer has been everything that I needed. It's the perfect amount of moisture and I feel like I'm seeing less lines and wrinkles.

This is a lightweight, anti-aging moisturizer that aims to boost the skin's radiance and firmness. It also helps to protect against environmental aggressors. Overall, this cream is suitable for all skin types and provides a noticeable improvement in the appearance of the skin's texture and firmness. Got it complimentary from Clarins.

My favorite face cream this year! It feels like a spa at home. The texture is not heavy. It's easy to melt between palms within one minute. I like to apply the cream on my face and neck. It makes my skin feel nourished with a matte finish.
ILiveForSkin from Huntington Beach, California
I love Clarins. I love there message, and I love the extracts present in this formula. This line does firm, and the eye cream is great from this line. However this moisturizer flakes. If I rub my face at all after using it, it makes my skin look flaky and like my skin is peeling. It isn't, it's the formula peeling away. It's streaky and has pigment so it's very noticeable. I want to use this bottle up as soon as possible. But I cannot repurchase.

I have been using this anti aging cream for two weeks now and love it. My face feels very smooth after applying. This is a very thick cream which is great for dry skin & when you need an extra boost of hydration. This is the perfect cream during winter months.
kimberleemarie from New Jersey
This is a favorite of mine from Clarins. The texture is nourishing and feels so good on the skin. It sinks into the skin so nicely. I love using how hydrating it is during the dry, winter season. Highly recommend!!
Nandi from De
The moisturizer is so good. It applies smoothly without making skin oily yet hydrating. My skin feels supple, more radiant, and plump. It goes well under makeup. It smells amazing. Applying this moisturizer gives a Zen moment.
