Following the first and only Shaping Facial Lift serum that combines a complex of powerful plant extracts that defines, drains and refines to create the perfect V-shaped contours, Clarins is launching 2 new pioneer products specially dedicated to Asian women.
Clarins Defining Eye Lift – S$82
A triple-action formula that gives an immediate lifting effect to relieve heavy-looking lids, stimulates lymphatic circulation with a draining action to prevent puffiness, and brightens the eye contours, leaving them more open, expressive and luminous.
▶ Oat Sugars and various skin-tightening ingredients form a veil on skin’s surface that gently pulls the eyelids up. ▶ Alchemilla Extract limits the transfer of melanin pigments thus reduces the darkening of eyelids and dark circles. ▶ Plant sugar Trehalose has anti-dehydrating benefits, that smoothes and soothes the skin simultaneously.
▶ By stimulating circulation, Maritime Pine & Ginkgo biloba extracts reduce puffiness. ▶ Combination of Caffeine & Dextran Sulfate enhance the removal of excess lipids accumulated in tissues due to a horizontal sleeping position, heat or stress.
To enhance the draining effect for optimal results, carry out the Auto-Lifting Method after every application. For those with busy schedules in the AM, you can skip the patented routine and use this shortcut – rest your head on hands with palms covering the eyes for 10-20 seconds.
The product has been given an update in its formula and packaging – the serum still retains that brown-sugar coloring but with a lighter hue. The tightening effect is immediately discernible once absorbed into the skin, and hydrates pretty well. Looking forward to implement into my routine once I’m done reviewing the 2 eye products I have on hand.
Clarins Shaping Facial Lift Wrap – S$75
Designed as a quick solution to reposition facial contours in just 10 minutes, this high-performing mask redefines areas on the cheeks, jawline and under the chin to promote a slimmer appearance.
Offering a double water-reducing action that reduces and prevents puffiness caused by water retention, the Wrap contains Chinese Barley & Ginkgo Biloba which aid in the removal of excess fluid that’s trapped in skin tissues, and encourage toxin elimination.
Doubling as a skincare product, key ingredients Christophine & Parsley Extracts hydrate, brighten and mattify the skin; White Clay absorbs impurities and excess sebum, and has an astringent effect which tightens pores.
Before coming across this illustration in my press kit, I’ve been using a muslin cloth – folded triangularly and wrapped around my jawline before fixating the ‘hooks’ onto my ears, very much in the same manner as the SexyLook Duo Lifting Masks. This can also be used to prep skin before makeup.
The tub will also go through a packaging overhaul to compliment the other 2 products mentioned in this entry – timeless with a touch of gold that truly reflects the pioneering of their Lifting technology. A spatula will also be included for convenience and hygiene.
Clarins Singapore has created a Facebook Pledge app where everyone works towards to achieve a perfect V-shaped contour. You might just be one of the lucky 20 to walk away with a limited edition beauty gift!
