Following the launch of the Clarins skincare range targeted towards millenials, we are seeing an exciting extension in the form of the new Clarins Multi-Active Eye Reviver ($45, available here). Anything to prevent fine lines, and damage around the eye area is something I’m very keen to put the test right away. Clarins has been my skincare range of choice as you might have seen on the blog recently, and this seemed like the perfect addition to both my AM/PM skincare routine!
What to Look for in the Clarins Multi-Active Eye Reviver
The new Clarins Multi-Active Eye Reviver is designed for the hyper-connected woman on the go. She’s someone who’s constantly glued to a computer, or smartphone for work / school / personal work, and have an active lifestyle that demands a lot of her time. This means she often has really late nights and early mornings. As I’m sure you already know, this “on-the-go” lifestyle will quickly take its tolls on your skin, and the delicate area around the eyes is typically the first place to show visible signs of damage on the skin.
The new Multi-Active Eye Reviver is joining the Multi-Active Cream range and has a cell-targeting technology that delivers teasel extract, the active ingredient proven to be a powerful anti-oxidant that also revitalizes to improve the look of your eye area. It claims to smooth fine lines, minimize signs of fatigue and instantly revives and brightens the eyes.
The eye cream has an identical texture, tint, and scent to the original moisturizer. The cream is lightweight and has a gel-like feel to it which leaves a pleasant cooling sensation on the skin. The delivery method is really what differentiates this eye cream – it has a metallic slanted applicator (called the “cryo-metal” tip) to smoothly apply the product, and relax the eye area as soon as the gel-cream is applied. There is also a white dispenser-type mechanism on the opposite side which I found dispenses quite a little too much if you’re not careful.
Eye creams tend to be a nice-to-have in most routines. For me, it’s become a necessity as I’m in my mid-twenties and am focusing on prevention rather than being reactive. I really enjoy using the applicator tip which is an improvement from the existing jar format and rollers which actually collects bacteria inside the tube. Although $45 may sound like a pricey investment for a tube of eye cream, as far as my research goes, the average price of eye creams at Sephora is anywhere from $37-$102 (Sephora also carries a $238 cream from Guerlain as well).
The Clarins Multi-Active Eye Reviver Technique
Clarins suggests using a specific depuffing and relaxing technique with this product. You start out pressing the product gently from the inner corner to the outer corner of the eye. What this does is to drain the toxins and flush them outwards. Then proceed with using the slanted metallic tip to depuff – just run the cold tip from the inner to outer corner.
If you enjoyed the original Clarins Multi-Active Cream, you’ll really like this new addition!
