I got a free sample of that but only managed to use it once because breakouts started magically appearing. Frankly, it's no wonder, with all the irritants in this fragrance- and menthyl-lactate laced lotion. I can't even imagine having to pay one's own 60 bucks for this.
This costs around 45€ for 200 ml in Europe, but it's worth every penny. When I bought this lotion, I wasn't looking for a lotion to lift or firm my skin, but simply to moisturize it and make it smooth, and this does that beyond my expectations (but if you are looking for a firming/lifting lotion, this might not be it). It smells amazing without the smell rubbing off to clothes as other lotions, and it leaves my skin with a smooth silky feeling even after the first use. I wasn't sure it would hydrate my skin in the winter due to central heating and cold air outside, but it really does. I have had to use most lotions in the evening because they absorb too slowly, so I was positively surprised when I noticed that I can use this in the morning and put on clothes a few minutes after and go to work, even when there is minus degrees outside, without my skin feeling weird. The only negative thing is that the tube isn't very practical, specially not when there is not much left. I am going to try Clarins' Moisture-Rich Body Lotion too, and if that one doesn't work as good as this, I am definitely going back to this one.
40GBP for 200ml it is really expensive!
but i love the smell it makes me feel so luxe!
dont know if it does firm much i havnt noticed anything but maybe one tube isnt enough.
This promises to smooth and tone your skin. All I can say is that this is a very good moisturizer that I hope will help prevent any sagging on my upper arms, stomach, derriere and legs. I prefer to use this in the winter because it is a thick lotion and I would say that it is more like a cream that is packaged in a clean white tube with the Clarins signature red label. I can't describe the scent, but it is not floral. The thick lotion, if you apply a lot on will take awhile to penetrate the skin. I think the whole point is to apply a sheer amount and it does spread nicely.
I have been using this for the past 6 months and I will repurchase in the fall season. For the summer, I prefer Chanel and cellulite creams from Sisley Phyto-Svelt Global and Elancyl Cellu Slim.
UPDATE: It is now fall season. I didn't buy another tube, but I do plan to. I just wanted to come back and say that I was very happy with it. This cream is very thick and it is hard to use in the summer. I found out that Chanel discontinued their body line (so disappointed!!!) I was very sick and lost 10 pounds within 24 hours. I used this cream to help my skin bounce back. I never saw my skin ever sag on my legs before, and I know this cream help restore some bounce in my skin and I hope with whatever ingredient claims to have, it did help firm the skin by bouncing it back.
