One of the things that I like about this product is that a little goes a long way and the amount that you use is easily regulated thanks to the tiny hole in the top of the easy to use squeezy tube. The moisturiser is an all over body lotion that is especially good for dry to very dry skin, which is brilliant for me. The consistency of the moisturiser is a milk type cream, which surprised me a little because I was expecting it to be a bit thicker. My absolute favourite thing about this moisturiser is the scent, which is just gorgeous; there is no other word for it. It has a really, really fresh smell that reminds me of summer and hot days by the beach. It contains peach milk, candlenut oil, shea butter and orange blossom, which all combine beautiful to give it a nice light smell, which is almost like an aqua scent. There are obviously underlying citric tones, which mean that it doesn't smell too sweet. It is not a really heavy scent either so it doesn't get too much when you cover your body in it. I find that my skin feels really soft as well almost instantly when I put it on. It absorbs really well, although I will say that it works much better when you are putting it on warm skin, so best to use it straight after showering for the best results. My skin feels really soft after I have applied it - almost like I have put one of these creams that you put on before applying make up to make it last longer and to smoothen out creases and lines ? that is how effective this moisturiser is as soon as you put it on.
I received this body lotion as part of a freebie gift set when buying other Clarins products
Clarins Moisture Rich Body Lotion comes in a 200ml tube. The product is dispensed by squeezing a small amount out and rubbing in your skin. The product is specially designed to intensively moisturise skins which have been exposed to drying elements such as cold weather and air conditioning. It is enahnced with Shea Butter, Candlenut Oil and Orange Blossom to help smooth dry skin and improve it's tone. According to the manufacturer, it is also quickly absorbed into the skin. It retails at around £30.
I have sensitive skin and as such I have had problems in the past finding good quality body lotions that won't aggravate my skin. I am a big fan of Clarins products and when I received this as a free trial, thought I would give it a go, I am very glad I did.
I could feel a difference straight away, my skin felt much softer. After having used it for a few weeks, the results were great. I work in a very drying environment for my skin. I regularly go from the cold outside to an air conditioned inside, which means I regularly find my skin is flaky and dry. This cleared up these problems and since using it, I have found that my skin dries out a lot less.
This product has a lovely scent, I would say vaguely citrusy. The actual lotion is rich and thick. It went on very easily and rubbed in well, it was easily and quickly absorbed into my skin meaning a lot less standing about waiting for it to dry before getting dressed. As it was so rich, a little goes a long way, which means that one tube will last a long time.
Although it is more expensive than a lot of similar products, I would say the richness and the end results justify the extra expense. The fact you don't have to use as much to obtain the same results means in the long run, the expense would probably work out similar for cheaper products.
I was pleasantly surprised by this cream and would highly recommend it. In fact once my bottle is used up, I shall be going back for more.
