New: Clarins Extra Firming Body Cream

My love of Clarins (inherited from my Mother’s red bag of Clarins goodies) has been well documented, so when I heard they were releasing their new Extra Firming Body Cream at the start of May, I got excited.

200ml/$68

Skin elasticity is one of those body ‘irks’ that can plague women, no matter what their size. Changes in weight, pregnancy, aging and of course your all-important genes can all contribute to skin slackness. Like anything though, the way you take care of it naturally reflects on the end results, so, quiz up your mum on her trouble spots, and get rubbing!

Personally, I find that I am extremely prone to stretch marks and skin slackness around the top of my thighs and bottom, which I can only put down to weight gain and loss, considering I’ve never had a baby and I’m a few months shy of 22. So, with daily application of Clarins Extra Firming Body Cream (it’s actually become the favourite part of my beauty routine at the moment!) I am hoping to not only repair some previous damage but prevent further stretch marks from joining their mates.

The cream is like a firm, spongy mousse, with the most unbelievably divine scent. I’ve also been applying it to my chest in an effort to keep them firm, and all day I have this lovely, floral, signature ‘Clarins’ scent wafting up, it’s beautiful! After application, my skin is firmer, and extremely well hydrated. Stretch marks, while they can never really go away, really do look better with lots of hydration to help sponge up the area, and avoid that ‘line-y’ appearance.

J’taime Clarins, and their new firming body cream… bravo! Now, it’s shower time, and I’m off to go coat myself in the divine texture and scent of it!
