WHAT IS CLARINS TONIC BODY TREATMENT OIL (CLAIMS)
A body oil that tones and improves elasticity of the skin while smoothing out the appearance of stretch marks.
HAZEL SEED OIL: a carrier oil credited with nourishing properties. As a carrier, it imparts excellent lubricity and low odor. This product is used in products designed for dry skin.
ROSEMARY LEAF OIL: It helps improve the feel of dry or rough skin. Rosemary also helps with blood circulation thereby aiding in skin regeneration.
HOW TO USE IT
AM OR PM
First, I cleanse my skin with my regular shower gel and exfoliating cloth. Occasionally I use my vitamin C Polish for extra exfoliation then I apply clarins body oil on my skin. I massage it into my skin focusing on the exposed or dry areas of my body.Then I rinse off with lukewarm water and lightly pat dry the excess water.
When I use the tonic body treatment oil at night I do not use my lotion over it because my skin is left moisturized enough but in the AM, I always apply a little vitamin c oil or lotion after the treatment.
HOW LONG DID I TEST THE PRODUCT?
Started using it in 2010 and haven’t stopped since
It smells botanical, very heavy fragrance that takes over the room and your clothes. I do not particularly like heavy fragrance in skincare products but this is an exception. Whenever I use it, I feel revived, refreshed like I visited a spa and had the most amazing massage offered.
