Eye Care—the Gentle Effective Way
Caring for your fragile eye area with gentle, plant-powered specialist eye creams
The delicate skin around the eyes—from eyebrow to cheekbone—is much thinner than the skin on your face. This means all the factors that can negatively affect your skin, are likely to have an amplified effect on the skin around the eyes.
Knowing skin as we do, the Clarins approach to eye skin care is twofold—creating high-performance creams that target your specific skin concerns, while also caring for this fragile area the gentle, natural way.
Clarins always chooses a natural ingredient over a chemical one, if it delivers the same level of effectiveness. This is the golden rule researchers followed when designing all of our products, including our eye creams. Each product contains a carefully selected collection of botanicals: some of these ingredients are seasoned stand-bys, while others are at the forefront of skincare innovation as new breakthroughs are made in technology and plant science.
So, whether you’ve hit the Big 3-0, you’re powering through your Still Flawless 40s, or you’re a 50 plus Classic Beauty, Clarins has an eye cream that’s just right for you.
Your result? Regular use of Clarins’ plant-based eye creams can help reduce the appearance of dark circles, puffy eyes, and fine lines—so you can always put your best face forward!
At what age should I start to use an eye cream?
Through our 20s, skin can still look fresh and tight even after a junk food-filled night of TV binge watching or a girls' night out that lasts into the morning. This is because the body is still producing high amounts of elastin and collagen — the skin's supportive connective tissue. But there’s no time to waste in establishing your 20-something skin care routine that will help keep your complexion youthful-looking for years to come — and under eye care should now be an important part of your beauty regimen.
Think of Clarins Eye Contour Gel as an icy wakeup call for eyes that you can apply any time of day! This cooling gel is your best weapon against eye puffiness and dark circles—helping to refresh the skin’s appearance with Palmetto extract, while visibly hydrating and relaxing the delicate skin around the eyes using the soothing properties of Rose Water, for even the most sensitive eyes.
Your bonus? Eyelids are prepped for flawless make-up application and long-lasting wear.
Need to revive tired-looking eyes in a hurry? Try Clarins’ cream-gel eye mask — for daily use or in case of emergency — when you’ve pulled an all-nighter and it’s important you look fresh and well-rested for that important date or job interview.
What eye cream should I use?
With age, skin becomes less supple, and wrinkles start to make their mark. Now’s the time to step up nourishment and hydration—by adding an under eye cream to your 30-something skin care routine that will help to minimize the appearance of first lines, dark circles and puffiness — so you look rested and refreshed around the clock.
We recommend Multi-Active Eye contour cream. Apply the ultra-cold, cryo-metallic tip to the eye contour to enhance drainage that can assist in reducing the appearance of puffiness and dark circles. Your result? Eyes appear younger, fresher and brighter with the help of Horse Chestnut escin and the refreshing properties of Teasel that can help to reduce the look of fine lines and wrinkles caused by a stressful lifestyle.
An important part of a skin care routine in your 40s is a hardworking under eye moisturizer that can reduce the appearance of wrinkles, dark circles, and puffiness. Clarins Extra-Firming Eye balm uses plant-based science to create potent blends— Kangaroo Flower and Mitracarpus extracts visibly firm, lift and minimize the visible appearance of wrinkles.Your result? Eyes that appear youthful and brighter-looking.
The best 50-plus anti-aging skin care routine should include a plant-based eye wrinkle cream formula for visibly plumped, moisturized, radiant-looking skin. Total Eye Lift targets deep wrinkles, crow’s feet, puffiness and dark circles.
Need some extra under eye care at any age? Try lightweight Enhancing Eye Lift Serum specifically formulated by Clarins to create the look of bigger, brighter, bolder eyes. The refreshing texture of this eye lift cream is rich in skin-refining plant extracts—including Zingiber Zerumbet extract, Alchemilla extract and Horse Chestnut escin—that aid in visibly lifting and brightening the eye contours.
How should I include eye cream in my routine?
- Fingertip-apply to lower and upper eyelids, starting from the inner corners and working outward.
- Gently press for a draining effect.
At Clarins, it’s not enough to formulate a product. We’ve created an application method adapted to make the most out of its effectiveness based on our knowledge of skin — easy expert techniques to repeat at home. You can master the application method for your specific eye cream using Clarins Beauty School tutorials.
