Clarins Extra-Firming Body Lotion is a very pale peach colored cream. Althought it is named lotion, I do find that it passes off as a cream since it is not in liquid form. Just apply a small amount on a particular area at one time. .
Clarins Extra-Firming Body Lotion leaves skin feeling soft and supple and gives the comfort of nourishing Shea butter. The texture is indeed soft and very creamy, and absorbs well into skin upon gentle massaging motion. A subtle floral fragrance with woody notes lingers on my skin for a while. I do love the instant skin-tightening effect that I felt every time I applied the lotion..Yes, I can feel something working on my skin with a little bit warm sensation too.Definitely do not have the torturing hot burning sensation that bites onto my skin.
I had used this product almost every night (like 5-6 days a week) for the past 1 month on my thighs and arms, and there is still alot of product in the tube.. As I mentioned a little goes a long way. The combination of Clarins Extra-Firming Body Lotion and gentle massage on my thighs seem to work wonders as they reduce and improve the orange peel appearance (aka cellulite) on my outer thighs - Skin felt firmer. Although I did not see any significant reduction in term of inch loss around my thighs and arms, I do feel that these two areas seem to feel much smoother and moisturized compared to the past.
Well, this is certainly the most expensive body lotion till date that I applied onto my body.. And the most luxurious one that I had used.
