Clarins fans can look forward to the new formula of their popular Super Restorative Day SPF 20 cream ($122). Featuring organic harungana leaf to revive hormone-depleted fibroblasts, the plant extract is touted as a powerful ingredient that's even more powerful than retinol. In fact, harungana is referred to as the "healing tree" in Madagascar.
The cream is designed for mature skin but I feel younger folks can benefit from it. It takes only a minute to soak in and it's a solid day cream to protect yourself from the onslaught of wind and freezing temps.
The Super Restorative Night ($130) version is a bit heavier but I prefer its soothing texture. It works quickly to soften my parched skin and this particular formula contains organic Montpellier rock-rose extract to fade age spots. Results are quite promising as clinical tests showed a 32% reduction after a month.
