If you're a regular reader of my blog, by now you will realise I'm a Clarins obsessive. I love everything Clarins - body and face! The Tonic range contains some of my favourite products from the brand. It all smells amazing and does wonders for the body!
Body oil is a very rich product and sometimes can be a complete faf and not worth the drama or the expense. However, this is another story. The base of the product is Hazelnut Oil - which is the base of all 6 Treatment oils from Clarins - this helps to nourish and maintains the skin's moisture level. It also includes essential Oils of Rosemary, Geranium, Mint which provide the fragrance and promote a feeling of well-being, tone and energise!
This is commonly known as Pregnancy Oil because it helps to prevent stretch marks which obviously are a common side effect of pregnancy. However it doesn't mean you have to be pregnant to use it! Anyone can get stretch marks but it also helps to firm and tone skin so it's great to get those areas you just can't seem to work on at the gym! Plus it smells amazing! I love pouring a little bit on some cotton pads and putting them on the radiators and it lingers around the whole house!
Tonic Body Balm is a rich body cream that includes 100% natural essential oils of Mint, Rosemary, Rosewood and Geranium which refresh and energise. It also has Ginseng extract which helps to firm, tone and revitalise. Apple Pip Oil is also in the mix which helps to protect, moisturise and nourish. This is a really nice hydrating body cream that smells so good and keeps my skin feeling soft all day!
The formula also includes Hazelnut Oil and Shea Butter which softens and nourishes the skin. As well as 100% natural essential oils of Mint, Rosemary, Rosewood and Geranium which refresh, and energise! Honestly, I can't recommend this enough. It leaves my skin super soft and it smells incredible!
Tonic Bath & Shower is either a shower gel or a bubble bath, depending on what you want to use it for. It uses Coconut to cleanse the skin and provide comfort and extracts of Juniper, Balm, Pine, St. John's Wort, Arnica, Gentian and Witch Hazel to firm and stimulate skin exchanges. It also contains a natural water-softening agent which is nice for those of us living in hard water areas! Along with the rest of the line, it contains aromatic essential oils of Rosewood, Geranium, Mint, Rosemary for fragrance, to tone and promote a feeling of well-being.
This is a relatively pricey shower gel however you only need a small amount to lather up your whole body so it does last a reasonably long time. It's also a really nice treat if you want to give your shower or bath a little lift. I really love how this smells and continue to repurchase it.
The whole range is refreshing, energising and toning the skin. It smells amazing and leaves your skin soft, smooth and hydrated. I also love the packaging! Yellow is such a happy colour and when I use the products, I definitely feel happy because the smell is just so amazing.
