I'm surprised that I overlooked writing a review for this product, since I've done them for the other "Tonic" products in the Clarins line. I've used the oil (on my pregnant belly), the scrub and this lovely shower wash for years and I love them. This shower wash (you can certainly use it in the tub as well) is gentle and non-drying and the herbal/pine smell, while not everyone's cup of tea, is one I find delightful and invigorating. This entire line has the same wonderful, sort of "healthful" fragrance and excellent properties for pampering your body and making shower time a lovely ritual. The only disappointing product in the line is the Body Balm, which had the same scent and would be really nice if only it were more moisturizing. I don't find it nearly rich enough for moisturizing my skin, except maybe in the hot, humid weather though even then, I would still prefer something a bit more emollient.
I bought this for half price, otherwise it's quite expensive. It has a herbal, citrucy, piny smell - I like it. The smell wakes me up nicely in the morning :) Ulike some other expensive shower gels, this is concentrated - I use maybe the amount of 4-5 peas for my whole body, so this will probably last me around 4 months. I use exfoliating gloves though - they help saving soap. It leaves my skin feeling nice and hydrated, unlike certain other shower gels do in the winter - no itchy back skin this winter it seems!
Is this worth to but? If you have the money or a sale is going on, I'd definitely splurge on this. It's nice to use in the morning, but yoy should be a fan of the smell of pine.
I love the smell of this, and it is very good quality. I can't say it is that much better than my (much cheaper) Ombra bubble baths, but hey. Using it makes me feel like I am getting a little treat.
I love the smell of this, it whisks me back to my childhood when I washed my hair with Vosene. It's really clean and fresh and brilliant to give you a burst of energy during your morning shower. A tiny blob amazingly transform to a rich, bubbly lather that leaves your skin soft as a baby :)
I'm going to buy the tonic body oil to compliment this.
This is yet another product from Clarins that I have used for years.
The aroma is just out of this world. It will clear your mind ,relax you and you will feel clean . It is one of my favorite smells in this world. The Relax bath /shower concentrate is very good too - in smell and quality - but I prefer this one.
This is my go-to, HG shower gel for the warmer weather months. The scent is natural rosemary, rosewood, mint and geranium and it is delicious but doesn't stay long on the body to interfere with your personal fragrance. It's a great pick-me-up to start the day and it leaves the bathroom with a fresh, pleasant smell. The gel foams up gently and a little goes a very long way. It's kind of expensive, but just one bottle lasts the entire season and the little rubber gasket on the nozzle prevents unnecessary spills or drips.
