What You Should Know
Clarins Super Restorative Total Eye Concentrate is designed to treat all aspects of aging that affect the area around the eye. The lotion, unlike many other eye products, is designed to be applied once or twice daily to the skin around the eye stretching to the temple. The idea is to hydrate and tighten all the skin affecting eye aging at once to lift and rejuvenate. With all the skin around the eye lifted and hydrated, the effects should be more pronounced and the overall treatment should cost less. Consumers can purchase one bottle of Clarins Super Restorative Total Eye Concentrate with about 0.5 ounces for around $80.
The first thing we noticed about the product description for Clarins Super Restorative Total Eye Concentrate was that parabens and sulfates were not mentioned. Most companies will immediately deny using these ingredients in an attempt to keep the consumer interested. Unfortunately, the formula contains methylparaben, polyparaben and isobutylparaben. If you want to choose a product free of parabens you should skip Clarins Super Restorative Total Eye Concentrate.
One of the active ingredients in the formula is caffeine. Caffeine is a proven ingredient that tends to work wonders for reducing puffiness around the eye. Puffiness, in some cases, is caused by fluid retention. Caffeine dehydrates the area around the eye so the fluid retention disappears and the eye looks less puffy. Dehydrating the area can lead to dry skin, but Clarins Super Restorative Total Eye Concentrate contains shea butter and other hydrating ingredients to fight dryness.
The most common complaint about the product is the fact that it simply does not work as claimed. We found pages of reviews from consumers who tried the eye concentrate only to find it neither hydrated nor reduced the signs of aging. The true test of any anti-aging product is consumer review.
- Clarins Super Restorative Total Eye Concentrate is available for sale online.
- There is a complete list of ingredients available.
- The formula contains parabens.
- Numerous consumer reviews claim the formula simply does not work.
The Bottom Line
We look at various aspects when reviewing beauty products, including ingredients and consumer reviews. Clarins Super Restorative Total Eye Concentrate falls flat on both accounts. The ingredient list contains parabens and consumer reviews are less than perfect. There are reports of burning, itching and watery eyes in addition to reports of dryness and ineffectiveness.
