We want our radiance back. Clarins have a new solution that’s concentrated in glow-boosting, skin-firming super fruits – and it’s the colour of apricots …
We’re tired. And our skin is showing the effects of the past year: poor sleep quality, central heating and tension, not to mention diet, lifestyle and pollution. So here are three magic words: Extra-Firming Energy, the new radiance-boosting day cream from Clarins Laboratories. It joins the Clarins Extra Firming range, designed specifically for women in their 40s (and beyond) since 1978.
Once we hit 40, many factors can affect the way our skin looks: with busy lifestyles and stress, signs of fatigue and tension set in and skin can lose radiance and firmness. How does new Extra-Firming Energy address this? This daily moisturizer, powered by organic extracts of plants and fruits, helps fight a loss of radiance and restore the skin’s “spring back” quality. Capturing 35 years of Clarins’ skin-firming expertise, Extra-Firming Energy features organic plant extracts, including kangaroo flower extract, that can help the skin to regain elasticity and firmness and visibly fight against slackening. It also helps skin to glow again: 82 per cent of testers said they noticed Extra-Firming Energy’s skin-enhancing, healthy glow effect along with its skin-firming benefits.*
A FIRMING FAVOURITE
With nearly 70 years’ experience, Clarins have a skincare range to address every age profile and concern. And it’s bio-inspiration that drives each innovation, including the latest from Clarins Laboratories: the Glow Plus Complex, which incorporates four fruit extracts with known “superpowers” to help skin regain its vitality and radiance. From acerola seed extract, which helps revive radiance by optimising the skin’s oxygenation process, and organic goji berry extract to reactivate the skin’s energy.
RECAPTURE YOUR RADIANCE
Extra-Firming Energy has an immediate healthy-glow effect on the skin. Organic apricot oil, rich in fatty acids, nourishes the skin, and gives the cream its luxurious peachy hue, while paprika extract promotes an immediate healthy glow. The formula also features a new generation of pearls to capture natural light and reflect it. And that’s not all. Skin is not just reinforced, but also better protected: Extra-Firming Energy features the latest anti-pollution complex developed by Clarins Laboratories, to help protect the skin from the harmful effects of both indoor and outdoor pollution.
THE RESULTS ARE IN …
More than 89 per cent of women found that their skin’s radiance looked revived after one week of use: skin looks more luminous. Skin reflected the light better for 82 per cent, while 81 per cent found that skin was energised. After four weeks of use, 90 per cent found that skin regained its energy and thought their face looked less fatigued.

HOW TO LOOK LESS TIRED
For best results, use Clarins’ iconic Double Serum after cleansing, as it’s suitable for all skin types and ages. It’s renowned for improving the efficacy of your skincare and hydrating the skin beautifully, with the lightest touch. Apply Extra-Firming Energy every morning using draining pressure movements. Enjoy its smooth, rich texture and fresh fragrance. And for optimal results, Extra-Firming Energy can be used with the other products in the Extra-Firming range, which includes Night Cream, Phyto-Serum and Eye Contour Treatment.
Clarins skin experts also recommend exfoliating the skin twice a week: this helps the ingredients in your daytime moisturiser to be better absorbed into the skin. For a natural-looking healthy glow, try adding three drops of Radiance-Plus Golden Glow Booster for the face to your Extra-Firming Energy day cream.
A conscious choice
Extra-Firming Energy’s jar is made using recyclable glass. And it incorporates 25 per cent recycled glass as well. As with all Clarins products, the outer carton and its corrugated wedge are sourced from sustainably-managed forests.
