      .

      This was the first product I bought from Clarins and that was a couple of years ago.

      I was in a department store and went over to the counter with the idea of getting a product for my Eyes. Although my eye area isn't wrinkled or looks that bad or that I do feel that I have bags under my eyes, and although I do usually feel tired I do seem to get a good sleep so would have thought my eye area would look better than it is. So I asked the assistant for something that would help with my eye area and she advised me truthfully that some skin issues can just be down to genetics, but certainly a product can help with certain things, so I chose this.

      This comes in a little tube which looks like the Dooyoo picture. I never think that the Clarins products look all that expensive with their plain white colouring and the red writing on the tube, but they are expensive and are a main designer brand named product. I got this in a 15ml tube and I think it cost me about £26 the last time I bought it. I did however get quite a few little trial sized products so I got to try other things that I wouldn't have thought about trying if I hadn't tried the little ones first.

      This is a Balm, so not a Cream, but it is still easy enough to rub in. I just squirted a little bit of this onto a fingers and rubbed the little spot of this under my eyes and I even had a bit left over to do the side of my eyes and my eyelids. This felt a little greasy when I first applied it, but it dried in quick and although I first noticed a little bit of a sheen with this when it settled down the area just looked a bit moisturised. I use this at night time anyway.

      A tube of this lasts a good lenght of time and I would hazard a guess and say it will probably do around 4 months if you are using this every night.

      I find that this works good enough on my eye area. Yes, my dark circles aren't magically away, but I feel they don't look so dark and the bags just don't seem so puffy. My eye area is nice and soft as well.

      A good product and if you break down the cost with how long this may last then it doesn't work out quite as expensive.

      Effective eye cream.

      Clarins New Eye Contour Balm is a great product if you are looking for something to soften the fine lines around the eye area. It is a soothing, gentle cream which is applied to the eye orbital area quite sparingly. I have fairly sensitive skin and have never suffered any reactions from any Clarins products - as they are all plant based they are promoted as being kind to sensitive skin.

      It is quite expensive at around £28 per tube, however, I find that a tube will last me for 3-4 months. A good tip for buying Clarins products is to wait until your local department store runs promotions (which they do regularly) when, if you buy two products, you get (usually) a choice of five sample sizes free of charge. The sample sizes that you get from Clarins are normally 15mls (which is a third of a regular bottle) so it is a decent sample. And, they do samples of a lot of their most popular day and night creams, so you can stock up on useful products rather than obscure lotions and potions. Also, a number of department stores run Clarins events now and again in the evenings at which they give away samples.
