Tried a small sample tube of the product. Love it cos' it's non greasy and I can see the effect on the next Monday. Skin is freshened up.
The price is a little steep though but i think it'll be worth it. Will be getting this once I finish my current (other brand) tub of night cream.
I discovered this when I was given a small sample. Wow. This is the best night cream I have ever tried. I have dry, sensitive skin but when I use it I wake up with beautifully soft, even, moisturised skin. The scent is strong but I haven't reacted to it. I was told by the sales assistant that I shouldn't use it because it's for more mature skin, but when I asked if it would do any harm, she was vague. Would love to know if does actually do harm on younger skins!
In summary, try it as a sample coz it's expensive. Also, if you're tempted to buy on ebay/swap be CAREFUL. I've bought from ebay, it was 'off' and the smell turns slightly bitter. Not great for the skin once it's turned either.
i'm pleased with this as a night cream, for my skin type i need very little. i feel after using this a few weeks my complexion is improving. in theory, i prefer a pump or tube for hygiene reasons but my beauty boutique gal smartly pointed out that with this packaging as opposed to the lighter version with the pump, you get every last ounce out of the jar.
Its been about a week since I started using this product and I really like it. The texture is lightweight, creamy and it really smooths out my skin. I'm not sure about the waking up with radiant skin, but it definitely do wake up with skin that is moisturized. While some people have said that they think it's heavily fragrant, I don't think it's that bad. I personally like the scent, I think it has soft flowery baby powder scent to it and calms me down when I put it on at night.
UPDATE: I have been using this for about a month now and I still really love it. It does not break me out, really moisturizes and smooths out my skin and is not greasy or heavy at all! The texture is perfect! Highly recommend for people looking for a night cream that really helps in preventing future wrinkles and smooths and tightens out the skin.
I like this night cream. It's very moisturizing and thick- great for the winter time. The only bad thing about this is the price. Other than that this is a very nice night cream but I would not use this for summer time.
I've been using this on and off for years..the only reason that I stopped using it was because of the price. This is one of my favorite nightcreams that I've ever used. I feel so pampered when I use this. I think the fragrance is relaxing and very mild, a very soothing nightime kinda fragrance. If you are sensitive to fragrances, this is not for you.
I thought at first this would be too heavy and moisturizing for my combination skin. It is alittle greasey and I do wake up with a major forehead shine, but this is to wear to bed, not out....I simply wash my face and my skin is absolutely glowing! I have never noticed any breakouts from this, only beautiful skin. Too bad its so expensive.
very good night cream. when I use this at night, the next morning my face is very smooth and glowing.
I really like this night cream. It moisturises beautifully without feeling heavy or greasy and hasn't given me any breakouts. I also actually love the smell (although I love the smell of all Clarins stuff). I would prefer it though if you could just get in a tube for hygeine reasons. Also it is expensive but Clarins do great gift offers and saver packs so it is not too unreasonably priced. I will definitely repurchase as my skin is in the best shape ever since I started using Clarins.
Well.. i really don't know how to say it but .. i actually like the smell !:) Obviously scent is a very personal preference so i'm going to say go smell it before you buy it :) but it's worth giving a try since this is one of the best feeling moisturizers, especially for the night time , on my skin . Moisturizing since not heavy at all , and slides on very easily .I can't really say anything on the long-term effects because i've been using this for about a week only but my skin definitely feels hydrated and i'm now looking for the night treatment time !
EDIT : This has started to irritate my skin , i have no idea why , but is kind of stinging as i type in right now ,and the scent is not so pleasant when used every day .. so changed the overall from 5 to 3 lippies.
I got this as a part of a kit so I didn't pay anywhere near the over $70 required for a jar. I really like it though and would consider it. If you have dry dry skin than you know that just not anything works. This sinks in for me and makes my skin feel like velvet. The fragrance doesn't bother me but it is stinky like other Clarins products. I would consider this as a jar might last me 6-9 months. I'm at the point of sticking with what works and this is a very good moisturizer.
