  • Olea Europaea (Olive) Fruit Extract : Emollient vegetable oil with benefits for dry skin due to its content of fatty acids, some of which come from squalene. Olive oil contains essential fatty acids that dry skin needs, including oleic, palmitic and linoleic acids. It also contains phenolic compounds that provide antioxidant benefits. Animal tests show that olive oil applied topically can protect against environmental damage.
  • Paullinia Cupana Seed Extract : The extract of the Guarana seed that is used in cosmetics for its toning and astringent properties, and as a treatment for cellulite. As a vasoconstrictor, caffeine tends to reduce swelling and create a smoothing effect. By increasing blood flow and increasing the lipolytic effect, it blocks enzymes and reduces the breakdown of triglycerides. By narrowing the blood vessels in the delicate eye area, caffeine can help temporarily reduce puffiness. However, this is temporary; it is important to stay hydrated to counteract the drying effects of caffeine. The dehydrating effects of caffeine simply shrink skin and fat cells, creating a smoother appearance, but no long-lasting effects.
  • Sodium Benzoate : Analyzed in Nuxellence contour from Nuxe .
  • Acetyl Tetrapeptide-2 : Acetyl Tetrapeptide-2 is most commonly used as a skin conditioner, soothing and nourishing the skin through mechanisms similar to other peptides. It is done by compensating for the loss of hormones in the skin, especially collagen, providing a plumping effect to the skin. It has also been shown to have anti-inflammatory properties.
  • Dextran : Polysaccharide with hydrophobic, illuminating, anti-inflammatory and skin softening properties. Firms the skin, promotes radiance and reduces the appearance of wrinkles.

Summary Eye contour analysis Multi-Intensive Concentré Zone Regard by Clarins

It is a formula with many moisturizing and emollient ingredients, so it will hydrate the dark circle area quite a bit. Also, it has no sulfates or parabens.

As for the active ingredients, I like the copoazú butter, the Albizia extract, and the Polymethyl Methacrylate, which although it is a plastic, works very well to fill in wrinkles.

The other natural ingredients are too low on the list to notice their benefits, and for one in particular, there is no more information than the company’s studies (which must be taken with a grain of salt as they are not from an independent laboratory).

On the other hand, there is a PEG, a silicone, an alcohol, a not highly recommended preservative, and a sensitizing ingredient. If it weren’t for these ingredients, it would be a pretty good contour that would surely reduce a good chunk of wrinkles.

Alternative Creams

A more powerful alternative in the elimination of wrinkles, and cheaper, is the contour of Nezeni Cosmetics. It is the one that I use daily, and I have analyzed it in the article Best Eye Contours that I recommend above.
