Clarins Whitening Plus is a beauty product produced as a skin brightener, using natural botanicals and proprietary methods in order to improve the appearance of healthy skin, with a particular focus towards people of Asian descent. This product comes in one-ounce bottles and at this time, we were able to locate it on online retailers selling for $51.18 plus shipping and handling. However, other retailers may have different prices, so be sure to shop around. Clarins does offer it directly, but the price is $95 in Singapore dollars, which, combined with the price of international shipping, may make it hard to estimate an exact price for overseas customers.
How Clarins Whitening Plus Works?
The exact ingredients of Clarins Whitening Plus are not clearly revealed in the manufacturer’s WebSite. It discusses several proprietary technologies, such as a “Trans-luminescent complex” and making use of plant extracts to support a healthy skin appearance. Some compounds are mentioned, such as hyaluronic acid (a common ingredient and part of the fluid between cells in all tissues), but their purpose is not mentioned. A small satisfaction survey of customers in Asia is cited, but otherwise there is no mentioned clinical research.
The product takes the form of a cream you apply to your face as part of your daily routine.

Clarins does not state what ingredients are in this skin brightening product, although they make many allusions to botanical ingredients and have an image of a hyaluronic acid molecule on their WebSite for the product.

Clarins Whitening Plus has an attractive web presence, and it makes many positive claims for the benefits of its product, especially for users of Asian descent. However, other than a user satisfaction survey, it doesn’t provide any examples of ingredients or other compounds which might provide these benefits, as well as no clinical research cited to support their claims. Finally, the product is very pricy, at least for USA customers; it may be much more reasonably priced in Singapore.
