Clarins Vital Light Day SPF 15 Illuminating Anti-Aging Cream
With a blend of palmitoyl glycine and plant extracts, this cream feeds nutrients to matured skin while helping diminish wrinkles and hyperpigmentation. The SPF 15 formula also protects skin from one of the culprits responsible for premature aging: the sun.
How It Works
Cochlearia officinalis and waltheria extracts work to strengthen skin’s collagen network, which subsequently increases skin’s firmness, reduces the appearance of wrinkles, and infuses a youthful glow into dulled complexions. Spergularia extract, meanwhile, helps lighten brown spots caused by the sun or falling asleep around a toddler with markers.
How to Apply
After a thorough cleansing, apply the cream by moving the flat of your hands from the middle of your face to the sides. Then, perform light pressing motions with your hands to promote absorption without stretching tissues.

In 1954, Jacques Courtin-Clarins opened his first beauty spa in Paris with the intention of making beauty more real and natural. He did so by experimenting with essential oils, drawing from natural plant extracts, and innovating on their application methods. His first breakthrough was a massage oil that increased the effectiveness of skin-firming massages. The product was so popular that he began selling it, thus beginning his foray into the skincare industry as the Clarins group.
One of Jacques’s greatest achievements occurred in 1985, when he challenged a chemical engineer to solve a problem: how to deliver two anti-aging serums—one soluble in water and the other soluble in oil—in a single treatment. The result was Double Serum, two separate treatment bottles that customers mix together to preserve the active ingredients. Today, Clarins continues to produce high-end products designed to accentuate and preserve natural beauty, from anti-aging creams and cleansers to makeup and perfumes.
