I love most of Clarins products. The packaging is simple but the quality of the products is commendable. I was sent the Clarins Tonic Body treatment oil for a review. The oil needs to be applied to damp skin and rubbed in. A little goes a long way. It smells very herbaceous and like a herb garden or the spice rack. I like the smell. It is very invigorating and really adds to the “spa” like experience of this expensive French product. I have been using this product nightly for almost a month now, doing all of the goofy massages, etc. I’ll be honest to admit that I haven’t been using it daily but only twice a week because I’m too lazy to massage oils on my body. Besides, I’m not using it for stretch marks as I’m not pregnant yet. Which leaves me the option of using it for elasticity and firmness.

-Shower and exfoliate with your preferred body exfoliant.
-Apply to damp skin with light sweeping motions moving upwards from the ankles and concentrating on areas of concern, such as the waist, hips, thighs, and buttocks.
-Rinse with cool water and towel dry or allow to air dry.
I use this at night after a body shower, since your pores are open and your body consumes it better when it needs to be hydrated again. I apply it at night before bedtime and the next morning I take a shower followed by Clarins Body Shaping Cream.
