Clarins Extra Firming Tightening Lift Serum

Ok the whole name is Extra Firming Tightening Lift Botanical Serum, but that was a bit too long for the title. This is new from Clarins, maker of one of my favorites - Younger Longer Balm .

This one caught the attention of the Mom, as she is always on the firming lookout.

The serum comes in a neat pump tube, and goes on very smoothly. (I tried it as well).

You immediately feel a bit of tightening and your face looks smoother really fast. The Mom has been using it for a little over a week. She loves how smooth it makes her face look. She does feel there has been an improvement and her makeup looks better as well. I noticed myself, how nice your makeup is after using it. It makes a perfect canvas and is not oily at all.

The serum is made to be used before moisturizer. It isn't very moisturizing on it's own. You do need to let the product dry for a few minutes we found. After it dries, add your moisturizer and then foundation. You will be very happy with how good you look. Whats nice here is you can get anti-aging and primer in one, even though this isn't technically a primer.

Clarins Lift Serum uses plant based tightening agents and some ingredients include:
Oat Sugars( the tightening), Hibiscus Seed protiens( moisture), Amino Acids , Vitamin E and Silicium ( derived from Brown Algae) to boost collagen and elastin.

Retail is $ 75.00 at all Clarins counters .
