Clarins Special Eye Contour Balm Dry Skin Review

There are a lot of discussions whether or not eye cream is a necessity. I personally believe in eye creams and use them regularly since my early twenties. I have very dry skin and a good eye cream is a must have for me, otherwise, the delicate skin in  that area feels dry and looks wrinkly.

My latest eye cream love was this Lierac Diopticreme and in July I’ve picked up Clarins Special Eye Contour Balm Dry Skin (£27/$35 for 20 ml).

Clarins Special Eye Contour Balm Dry Skin Review

This is a rich cream that is formulated especially for dry skin, but it doesn’t feel heavy and doesn’t take forever to soak in . I personally find that it moisturizes, nourishes  and optically makes the skin look smoother and, younger (since it visually improves the appearance).

I don’t exactly have  a lot of wrinkles (just yet?) and I think the fact that I use proper eye creams has a lot to do with that. I’ve got used to that fact that recently people think that I am younger than my age but  this month one person thought that I was 20 and the other one –  that I was 19. Although I really don’t agree (I could agree with 23, but not 19), it makes me think that I am doing something right.

I  also really hope that this cream with a blend of Gingko Biloba, Chicory extract, Aloe Vera and Cereal Seeds will be a great moisturizer for the eye area in Autumn/Winter.

Here is the list of the ingredients:

Next time I think I’ll pick up Eye Revive Beauty Flash and Skin-Smoothing Eye Mask.

And if you don’t need a “Special” eye cream, Clarins also offer Eye Contour Gel and Eye Contour Balm.
