Clarins Review

Updated On:


Clarins is a skin care and cosmetic company that was started back in 1954. This company manufactures products that they claim are the “safest and most effective.” Clarins does not incorporate animal products into their skin care/cosmetic line; however, they claim to have extensive quality control to ensure safe products. Clarins offers categories such as make-up, sun care, body, face, fragrance, well being and Clarins men’s line. All Clarins products can be purchased via the official website, but can also be found in most high-end department stores. These skin care products are geared toward men and women.

There do not appear to be any exclusive active ingredients used in Clarins products. However, some of the Clarins moisturizer treatments incorporate components like Katafray extract (aids in preventing moisture loss), Mirabilis extract (anti-inflammatory) Inca Peanut oil (helps hydrate the skin), Laminaria Cloustoni (improves the skin’s cellular makeup) and Alfalfa extract (boosts collagen levels, assists with skin firmness and minimizes facial wrinkles). Essentially Clarins products aim to assist users with common skin issues like wrinkle prevention, dark circles, hyper pigmentation, fine lines, collagen loss, crow’s feet, dryness, facial sagging and sun damage. There do not appear to be any customer testimonials or money-back guarantee found on the official Clarins website. The Clarins website does offer a free online beauty “tool” that helps consumers find out which products would best suit their individual skin type and concerns.

Product Details

Clarins is a skin care or beauty line that is primarily geared toward adult women of various age groups, but does offer a small line of products for men as well. Like many other skin care and makeup companies, Clarins endeavors to assist individuals with common skin dilemmas like wrinkle prevention, dark circles, hyper pigmentation, fine lines, collagen loss, crow’s feet, dryness, acne breakouts, facial sagging and sun damage. Some key ingredients incorporated into Clarins skin products are Katafray extract, which aids in preventing moisture loss, Mirabilis extract, which is an anti-inflammatory, Inca Peanut oil, which helps hydrate the skin, Laminaria Cloustoni, which improves the skin’s cellular makeup and Alfalfa extract, which boosts collagen levels, assists with skin firmness and minimizes facial wrinkles. All Clarins products can be purchased through the official website.

The Good

  • Clarins products can be easily purchased in most upper-scale department stores, as well as on the official website.
  • Clarins has been around since 1954.
  • Clarins does not use animal-based ingredients in their products.

The Bad

  • There are no customer testimonials offered on the official website.
  • Some ingredients found in Clarins skin products may not be suitable for certain individuals.
  • Clarins skin treatments do not appear to come with a 100% money-back guarantee.
  • There is minimal scientific research actually located on the official Clarins site to support the line of products.

The Bottom Line

On the bright side, Clarins is a skin care/cosmetic line that’s been around for over 50 years. However, the official website does not exactly offer a great deal of clinical proof to support the effectiveness of their products. It would be nice to see some customer testimonials on the official Clarins website, or at least a 100% satisfaction guarantee on the main page. It may be wise to consult a Clarins professional in a department store to discuss these products before you actually invest in any of them.
