Considering that I have already written about Clarins twice this week, and the fact that they are adding an eye cream to the Multi-Active line, it seemed like a good idea to publish the feature which was in my drafts for several months already. And we are talking about Clarins New Multi-Active Day cream for all skin types.
I am a big fan of Clarins creams, especially the HydraQuench (I’ve been buying that range for years), and also the Daily Energizer which I’ve had more than once, as well, so I was happy to get a sample of the latest launch, 46 weeks ago (according to my Instagram, ahem). But it is better late than never, right? Plus, now I have a better impression, as I have already used the cream up, as you can tell from the photos.
According to the brand, Multi-Active Day cream “prevents and visibly corrects the appearance of fine lines thanks to new Myrothamnus extract. The new extract minimises the impact of daily stress to help keep skin smooth and radiant. With technology powered by plant extracts and the latest breakthroughs in botanical research, these treatments visibly diminish the first signs of ageing, restore radiance, hydrate and maintain younger looking skin.”
My first impression is that it is a joy to use, Clarins do know how to make a luxuriously looking/feeling product for a fraction of the price of those more expensive brands. Multi-Jour cream comes in a heavy glass jar, the texture is beautiful, it melts into the skin, and the scent is nice and relaxing. And we all know that when it comes to skincare, the sensations are as important, as the results.
From my experience, this cream worked great as a makeup primer and it also left the skin smoother, softer and more radiant which is exactly what I wanted from a day moisturizer. I also like to think that it did minimise the effect of the stress and the lack of sleep. A girl can dream, right? Other then that, I don’t really have any visible wrinkles and fine lines just yet so I can’t make any comments about the promised results in this particular area.
I did enjoy using this cream, and I will be buying it in the future, only the version for the dry skin, as I could feel that my [very dry] skin would definitely like the richer/more hydrating formula better.
Overall, I would recommend this cream as a daily moisturizer for girls in their late twenties-mid thirties, as it is a good cream, and you can’t really go wrong with Clarins.
PS. As for the night cream (shown on the first photo) – I was sent the one for normal/oily skin so had to give it away, and I did get a positive feedback from a friend.
