Product Review: Clarins Extra Firming Day & Night Cream

I received samples of the Clarins Extra Firming Day and Night Cream in my January Glossybox.  There was a bit of controversy about these samples, but in the end I think the real problem was that Clarins sent samples that contained 15ml of product in a 30ml sized tube, making it appear that people had been short-changed.  But despite all that, I have really been enjoying these two products.

Both creams smell and feel the same.  They sink into the skin quickly and don’t leave you feeling greasy.  I didn’t use a night cream before so the Clarins Night cream has been a welcome addition to my skincare routine.  The creams are scented lightly and smell quite nice, it’s not something that lingers though.

The creams are quite thick and you don’t need a lot of product to cover your face.  For my day cream, I think I still prefer my Monu Revitalising Moisturizer, but it is a close call.  If you did receive these samples from Glossybox, cut your tubes open once you think they are empty.  I did this and there was seriously a ton of product still left in there due to the thick consistency.

What do you think of Clarins products?
