Clarins Advanced Extra Firming Neck Cream review
Years of neglect have led fine lines and wrinkles around my neck to start showing.
While it’s not as bad to the point of no return, I knew that I had to start doing something about it as I continue to age.
I’ve been on the look out for a specified form of treatment for my neck and have come across several neck firming creams from different beauty and skincare brands.
Clarins is one of the brands that I truly trust with my skincare’s health, so I went on and tried out this Advanced Extra Firming Neck Cream.
As I do with other skincare products I try on, I first check what it has to offer based on its ingredients.
It’s already a given that the Clarins Advanced Extra Firming Neck Cream promises on immediately “lifting” the skin on the neck area, as well as lessening the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
But does its ingredients truly support this purpose?
Sunflower Auxins –
Sunflower extracts, in general, is a highly beneficial skincare ingredient, especially when it comes to battling the signs of aging.
It helps keep the skin hydrated and it provides antioxidants that protect the skin from free radicals.
Sunflower Auxins are common with Clarins products and its main purpose is to keep the skin firm and tone for a more contoured and youthful appearance.
Green Seaweed Extracts –
Seaweed may just be the ocean’s elixir of youth with its abundant restorative and regenerative properties.
Its main job is to protect the skin from the harsh effects of free radicals, which accelerate skin aging.
It also helps restore the cell membrane into its healthier state. For those with paler skins and those who have undergone pregnancy, seaweed extracts also aids in balancing out the skin tone to pigmentation.
Oat Sugars –
Oat sugars have also been known to be very beneficial to the skin, mainly providing an extra support for the skin to lessen the sagging appearance.
Besides this, it also aids in exfoliating the skin of dead skin cells, provides a soothing relief to skin irritations, and is also considered as an effective cleanser even for sensitive skin.
Vitamin E –
Vitamin E is known to aid in trapping the skin’s moisture, keeping it hydrated for longer.
It also has antioxidants that can treat the damage caused by free radicals.
Glycerin is mainly used to provide hydration for the skin, as well as aid in healing and repair of the skin.
Dimethicone is one of the most widely used ingredients when it comes to cosmetic products.
This is because of its ability to prevent water loss by forming a hydrating barrier on the skin.
It’s also known to have that glossy look and feel that’s smooth and silky to the touch.
And thanks to its protective barrier, it can provide a plump look by filling in lines and wrinkles on the face and neck.
Given that I do trust Clarins’ line of beauty products, I have to admit that the rather costly price of this cream compared to the rest of its kind did throw me off a bit.
I initially thought of skipping on trying out this product if not for the fact that other Clarins products have proven to be very effective on my skin.
I think the price point, if anything, would be the main hindrance for consumers like me to try it on.
What I do have to say about the price range issue is that this product still ranks high as one of the best neck firming creams in the market for me.
It may not be for everyone, but it is certainly a worthy investment for women who are looking for quality skincare treatments.
There’s a reason why Clarins ranks high in the beauty and skincare industry and this is because of their proven effectiveness for women’s skin woes—such as skin aging.
After using Clarins Advanced Extra Firming Neck Cream for two to three months, I can truly say that I have witnessed noticeable differences in how the skin area around my neck area looks and I couldn’t be more satisfied.
Don’t count it out until you’ve tried it out for yourself, it’s definitely worth every penny.
