Review ~ New Clarins Multi Active Eye |UK Wedding Blog

SAMSUNG CSCFor skin care junkies, finding a great eye cream is akin to a very small lottery win. They all make all the claims, but finding one that actually visibly does something is a rare treat – and here to kick off the year we have a great new eye product from Clarins.

We all know that the minute we feel tired, run down or ill the first place it shows on our faces is round our eyes, whether it’s dark circles, fine lines of dehydration or puffiness (as that skin is 3-5 times thinner than the rest of the face). The new Clarins Multi Active Eye is so good to target all of those – with it’s ingredients, yes, but with its applicator, which is particularly effective for puffiness. The smooth massage tool tip is made of Cryo-metal, basically meaning it feels super cold to the touch, which feels refreshing and definitely helps in the mornings if your face wakes up a lot later than you do! Think of the old cold teaspoons on the eyes trick – hydration and coolness helps to calm and depuff. To apply, you simply squeeze a little product out of the end of the tube, and then use the metal disc to massage product in and voila – instant refreshment and smoothness.


Key Ingredients – Teasel extract in its free form, as well as encapsulated  {fatigue fighting using cutting edge technology to deliver this ingredient}, Caffeine {decreases puffiness}, Clarins Anti pollution complex {potent plant extracts to protect the skin from external aggressors), Escin from Horse Chestnut {beneficial to microcirculation}

“Instant Eye Reviver, Targeting Fine Lines”

Texture wise, it’s a light, easily absorbed cream-gel and is “infused with illuminating pigments, smoothes and optically blurs the look of fine lines to give an immediate smoothing effect” – so basically brighter, more awake eyes but with no heavy residue which will make concealer slip. It definitely has an instant tightening effect upon use, so great for fine lines too.


I’m definitely popping this in my kit for bridal work – its super common place to feel a little on the tired side on your wedding day (read:knackered, but I promise for the most part of the day you won’t notice!) and I find puffiness is something some girls really feel conscious of! A quick application of this really smoothes and tightens, as I’ve found having tried it now for over a week.

Clarins Multi Active Eye launches nationwide in February, RRP £35.

Hi Nathalie, I’ve had to add it to the post as I don’t seem to be able to add the photo of ingredients here. It’s 6months from opening. Hope this helps! Emily x
