The bottom line about this neck firming product is this: it is a luxury product with proven firming ingredients. While everyone has different skin and there are no guarantees when it comes to skin care products, Clarins offers a money back guarantee if you return the product after 30 days. So this is a low risk purchase. Try it and if you don’t like it just return it. A lot of reviews raved about the results they saw after going through the first jar. It has a pleasant smell, great non-sticky or greasy consistency that leaves skin hydrated. A few one-off user reviews complained of crepey skin after use or that nothing happened. With high end products it is imperative that users follow the directions given on the jar. It is important with this product especially to buy an exfoliator to use twice a week along side this product. If money happens to be no object for you, just skip this neck cream and purchase the concentrate version for $108 Clarins offers for those who are a step away from going under the knife.
This product mainly focuses on promoting general skin health rather than treating and preventing fine lines and wrinkles. It states that it is an ultimate firming neck treatment; however, its ingredients such as thickeners, silicone, slip agent, preservative, water, and fragrance are not skin firming agents. In fact, it can improve your dry skin by making it smoother. But the truth is that is not what you expect by paying $82. Moreover, we do not know how long it takes to render its results and there are many more neck formulas on the market that deliver better results in just a month.
