Clarins Multi-Active Day Early Wrinkle Correction Cream

Hi everyone,

Skincare has been the main cause of my bank balance hating me over the last few months as I have really been trying to look after my skin better. A couple of months ago I decided that it was time to invest in a new moisturiser as Simple’s Kind to Skin just wasn’t cutting it anymore. I’ll be honest, I didn’t do a lot of research and this was more of an impulse buy one day on my lunch break from work but I had always been interested in trying some Clarins products and had heard such good things about their skincare range.

The assistant recommended that I try the Multi-Active Day Early Wrinkle Correction Cream as now that I am 26 it is time to take preventative measures against those early signs of aging. This cream claims to fight the effects of tiredness, pollution and UV damage to leave skin feeling lovely and smooth as well as hydrated and more youthful looking. I wasn’t sure at first as this cream will set you back £42 but I was feeling impulsive and if it really does do all the things it claims to then it’s well worth it.

I have now been using this cream at least two months and I really do like it. You only need a tiny amount to cover your entire face; I’m about half way through my pot which I think is so good for the amount of time I have been using it and the fact that I use it every day. It has quite a thick and creamy texture but it doesn’t sit on the skin or leave it feeling too greasy and I noticed an almost immediate difference after using this moisturiser over the Simple one. My skin had a lovely glow to it straight away and felt so much more hydrated than before and the feeling lasted all day rather than just a few minutes until the cream has sunk in. I have seen much more lasting results from this product than I thought I would with my skin feeling and looking in much better condition overall.

There is a fairly strong scent to the moisturiser which I think might put some people off and I was worried as some perfumed products do irritate my skin. The scent is difficult to describe but I’d say it was a bit like talcum powder or an old lady smell as my boyfriend described it as! I haven’t had any problems with irritation since using this moisturiser though so I don’t mind too much about the fragrance and it does wear off once the cream has sunk it.

The only criticism that I have of this product is that I would prefer it to come in a tube rather than the pot style packaging. I just find it a bit unhygienic sticking my finger in it every day and I can also see it being difficult to scoop out once I’ve used a bit more of it up. Other than that I have no complaints and I will definitely be repurchasing this cream once I have used it up; not bad for an impulse buy!

Have you tried this or any other Clarins products? Which are your favourites?

Thanks for reading,
