I just bought the Lift-Minceur Visage, but I'm having second thoughts about whether it will work or I just threw perfectly good money away... anyone tried it? does it work?

The Contouring Facial Lift? I've used this in the past. It's recommended for tightening slackened features, and if you're losing weight, to help keep skin firm on your face. It's a good product. Just use it in conjuction with the technique they call the Clarins Facial Lifting Method. And it's not a moisturizer, so you need to apply one of those over it.

Bring back this thread! So far I've only tried two Clarins products - the Facial Shaping Lift and Body Shaping Cream. I've used them for about half a year now.

I am usually very skeptical when it comes to slimming/firming products, but I can't help but notice that my face always looks a lot more firm and toned when I wake up after using the Facial Shaping Lift. Is my mind playing tricks on me? I read on MUA that it's actually the lifting method (massage) that is doing the work.

The Body Shaping Cream never did anything for me. It is a good body moisturizer though.

The flash balm, like its name suggest, instantly erases signs of fatigue or stress on the skin with more more noticeable results over time. FLASH!

It smells good.

The tube is very small, but a little bit of product goes a long long way.

People don't seem to realize that most products that come in small packages pack a big punch, that's why they're more expensive than bigger packaged products that hardly do anything at all.

^That sounds very yummy. So in a sense, is it an anti-aging treatment?

Anti-aging? Ummm.... from what I've experience, it does somewhat minimizes the look of wrinkles, but I'm a guy and I don't really worry about wrinkles and I'm 18 years old , but I think it works best with "stressed" skin. I usually use it when I haven't been getting enough sleep or have been in a place or environment that has been hell for my face.

Other anti-aging lotions by Clarins would be better if you want anti-aging.

^Hahaha, stressed skin, probably perfectly when I start uni!

I don't need anti-aging just yet... I'll start when I hit mid-twenties.

OMG, I actually started using the balm when I started college this past September and had sleepless nights of studying and didn't want to go to photography class looking like I just got abused. Haha.

Supposedly the best age to start using anti-aging products is 17!

The beauty flash balm says it revives tired skin. It was a little pricey,but that's why I always buy it at the airport duty free I have found it makes a great difference,and my make up goes on a lot better,and still tends to look good by the end of the day. Plus you can use it as a face mask every so often.

I wouldnt say that the beauty flash balm is anti aging, it's more like an illuminating primer. I love it!
