Night Routine: Clarins Multi-Active Night Youth Recovery Cream Review

Holiday time is officially over and it's time to get back to 'reality' and dive into the beautiful autumn/fall. I have had such an amazing time with my hubby (mentally insert all the summer'y emojis you can think of here). We needed a super relaxing getaway somewhere where there are more palm trees than tourists and the sand is coloured platinum to golden blonde (couldn't resist a hair colour ref!). Apart from the after sun lotion, my night routine didn't change on vacation and it had to include a good moisturizing night cream.
Here are my thoughts on Clarins Multi-Active Night Youth Recovery Cream:
Clarins Cosmetics... Where do I even begin? I have loved this brand for a while for many reasons and products. About a month ago, after being absolutely annoyed with my skin being so dry before going to bed and waking up in the morning looking like I've never slept, I decided it was time for a big change. I was on the hunt for: a) great good-quality moisturizing night cream, b) night cream that would make me look more "alive" in the morning, and c) magic potion to prevent wrinkles and help to soften the little ones I have. I can't even remember how I stumbled across Clarins Multi-Active Night Youth Recovery Cream, but I sure am glad I did. 
Before I buy any beauty products, I always check the ingredients:
    + Kiwi extract
    + Imudilin
    + Carob seed extract
Kiwi extract sounded familiar and I've heard about its antioxidant superpowers, but I have never heard of Imudilin so a bit of research was needed. My little discovery revealed that Imudilin is a safe chemical used in anti-ageing, anti-stress and skin protection products. Sounds pretty good, right? Carob seed extract apparently reduces the appearance of early wrinkles (yes, please) and adds that radiant glow to skin (double yes, please).
My Thoughts:
  • my skin is definitely hydrated and soft before I go to bed: no more dry (and painful!) skin issues at night
  • it didn't magically "erase" my little forehead wrinkles under 24 hours but it did smooth the skin and those lines are less visible
  • it smells great and the scent doesn't become annoying after a number of uses (have you ever become quickly annoyed by the scent even though you liked it when you bought a product?)
  • sometimes I wake up with more bright-looking skin, sometimes looking like I've been up all night (which might have to do with my sleeping habits and too much screen time, not the cream), but I'm still hoping that the 'radiant' skin situation will be there, on a daily basis
  • it is pricey (it was a present, still a big splurge!) but it's worth paying a little more for something that will be absorbed by your skin every night (what do you think?)
  • it looks like it will last for a while (50ml jar of goodness) and I definitely want to re-purchase it once I'm out (might add it to my Christmas Wish List to avoid breaking the bank)

Verdict: I love it. It is going to remain a part of my night routine.


Hope you enjoyed reading this review. By the way, this is not a sponsored post, I am simply sharing my own discoveries with you girlies (and guys). I would love it if you shared yours with me, Let me know what gives you 'radiant skin', makes you look super fresh in the morning and hydrates your skin like there's no tomorrow.

  5. Great review, I love the photo as well! The product sounds amazing, I need it lol! I've posted my skin care routine and it includes some products that make my face brighter, and adds a gorgeous glow! It's products like Soap and Glory and Sanctuary Spa, I love them, if I could afford though I would splurge into high end skin care products, I bet they work wonders, especially this Clarins one!

  10. Отличный отзыв, Надя! Я обожаю уходовую косметику Кларанс, но с этим ночным кремом не знакома. Понравилось его описание и особенно то, что крем имеет невероятный аромат, я обожаю, когда средства приятно пахнут))

    1. I used to ignore the ingredients in the skin/body care and makeup as well hon but then learned about chemicals that cause major issues in the long run. So one day I literally went through every single jar and tube and got rid of everything that contained parabens and other harmful chemicals.
      Sorry for the ramble :) Glad you enjoyed my review hon and thank you for your lovely comment. P.S. The holiday went absolutely perfect - I will make sure to do a holiday recap ;)

  28. I'm on hunt for good night cream. I find it's hard to find perfect one even if offer is so big. Maybe it's transition into Fall or stress what I got lately a lot, my skin haven't been feeling itself. So I try my best to bring it back with masks. I love masks and I love to try new, yet I always go back to oldies and goodies.
    This is wonderful review. Thank you for sharing. Hope you're having great week so far darling!
