Day Correction Cream-Gel Normal to Combination Skin
Totally awesome, if not for the smell...!
I just switched from the Clarins BrightPlus regime to the Multi-Active line, and love this daytime moisturizer! The one review this received about the consistency is understandable...if you do not know the correct amount to dispense. My first morning I dispensed too much and my skin felt heavy and "wet" all day long, and now I use the recommended amount and my skin feels wonderfully soft and lightly moisturizer! In addition, I top off my morning skin care regime with the Beauty Flash Balm as a primer before applying make-up so with my skin type and deep tone, I prefer a non-heavy moisturizer.
I am a cosmetologist and have tried many other lines of skin care, but will never part from Clarins again! Even though the smell is way overpowering (please Clarins, do something about it) and it reminds me of Oil of Olay, I think I'll be sticking with this as my winter moisturizer! Hope this is helpful!

A Lighter Choice
Like so many, I use this in the humid summer. Unlike my usual Extra-Firming Day, which is loaded with humectants, Multi-Active Cream-Gel won't pull so much moisture out of the air on to your skin, which can give you "wet face" in humid conditions.
The texture is very light, much lighter than the typical Clarins moisturizer. I like the smell of it, and that it leaves nothing behind that you can feel on the surface of your skin. Although it may have less oomph as far as wrinkle smoothing is concerned, I don't feel like it makes a visible difference vis a vis Extra-Firming Day, perhaps because I continue using Double Serum and Extra-Firming Night year round.
If you're looking for a relatively sheer moisturizer, this is a great option.

A Great Find!
I was in a vicious circle with my attempts to find a cream that doesn't break out my skin. I am not allergic and my skin is dry, but recently all the good skincare causes tiny little pimples on my face.
This great cream-gel so far is very gentle to my skin. I see after few days of use glowing and more youthful look. Wrinkles seem to be not so visible as well. It has a very pleasant texture that is quickly absorbed in without leaving grease on the surface. No annoying left overs that peel like a peel off mask. The beautiful and light perfume of this gel makes applying a real pleasant task, then in a few minutes dissipates. The beautiful package is very comfortable to open and close. A great find for me from Clarins :)

Great for more than advertised
I am in my late 50's and live4 in a very humid climate. Although this is not the "recommended" moisturizer for my age and some of my aging challenges, it is the VERY best moisturizer for my skin in the summer. As others have mentioed the smell, texture, absorbability and overall "feel" of the moisturizer and my skin makes it my absolute favorite (and I have tried a few). I was a little concerned when I could not buy it at the retail establishemnt where I usually purchase my Clarins products and was afraid it had been discontinued... thank heavens it's here!
