This is a great body oil from Clarins. I have used this off and on for over 20 years now and two things i love about it are:
1. Very moisturizing without being greasy
2. The aromatic smell from the essential oils
The claim about losing weight from using this oil is something I am not entirely sure about. I use the oil because it makes me feel good and the Clarins system of applying it to moist skin after a cool shower is wonderful ( but not in winter ! ) If you use their method - you really do not need a body cream after your shower but perhaps a bit more of this oil instead- just a few drops when your skin is towel dried if you suffer from drier type skin .
The losing weight claim : I do find that the essential oils and the cool shower do * something * to boost your circulation and perhaps your metabolism . I do exercise and try and look after my diet so I cannot state for sure that any weight loss comes from this product.
The diuretic effect of the essential oils and the massage has a slight effect on my body perhaps pre menstrually but that is all .
All I know is that this oil smells very good, makes me feel calmer and helps my skin feel softer . It saves me time putting body cream on after my shower. I have a soft spot for this oil and for the Tonic oil so I will keep buying both !

I liked this body-oil a lot. It smells beautifully like herbs, moisturizes and yes - I think it may even help, as it promises, with water retention. I feel good and pampered when I use it and I do it the way Clarins suggests it: putting it on while still in the shower and rinsing afterwards. When I pat dry after the shower, there is still enough oil on the skin so I wouldn´t need to use lotion (mostly, especially in winter, I still do put lotion on the dry skin on my legs), but it doesn´t feel greasy. Great product!

I cannot stress how amazing this product is. First off it smells like Hawaii - tropical, floral, fruity, delicious! I use it after a shower before bed whenever I feel fat/bloated/heavy. I'm one of those "skinny-fat" people prone to swelling in my legs, the dreaded cankles, and bloated tummy. This completely fixes it. I put it on when I'm still wet in the shower, slap it on from my ankles to my stomach, rub it in a little, then get dried off and follow with my normal body lotion. No cold shower for me... When I wake up I have gorgeous silky-smooth legs and a flat belly again! It gets rid of any feeling of heaviness, cures my cankles and swollen knees and makes me feel sexy. It is VERY noticeable. To check this, I put it on only one leg and every person I asked could tell which leg had the oil the next day. I think it makes you pee more to get rid of the extra fluid (for me this is the next morning). The results lasts a day or two, but it's totally worth it. It's expensive, but the bottle has lasted me 6 months already and I'm not even half done.

I purchased this item a few days ago. My skin gets very dry and flaky in the fall/winter months and I have used and searched for body oil products over the years. I was looking for a therapeutic oil so I decided to visit the Clarins counter. The SA was pushing the tonic oil, but I chose this one instead since I have trouble with water retention during "that time of the month". I must say that this oil is very effective. Relieves water retention in my legs and abdomen. I use at night after showering and wake up the next day with baby soft, hydrated skin. LOVE!

Great, great, great product. I use it every night and I just love the way my skin looks, feels and smells :) Yes, the packaging is a bit awkward, but after a few uses you'll become accustomed to it. I use this in conjunction with Clarins HD Body Lift, but I do not use it on damp skin or follow with a cold shower...I'm too lazy :) Anways, I highly reccomend this product (now I just need to use Clarins Body Shaping Cream).

This product is a GREAT option for who has problem with water retention. It really works!!! I always feel my legs so heavy and my body feels always like is ''swelling'', i use this oil every evening after shower and before go sleep and noticed that this oil helped ALOT, like the other products i tested never did.
It is a little bit precey, but totally worth and lasts for a long time. It is my biggest HG beauty product! Thanks Clarins! :D
updated: this oil make me slimmer!!! its just amazing, this is the best beauty product ever!!!

All of Clarins body oils are wonderful, but this is my favorite out of the three available (Relax and Tonic being the others). I use it twice daily: 1) after bath/shower - massaging it in while skin is still damp concentrating on my abdomen, upper arms, hips and thighs - areas where I tend to gain weight first in, and 2) at the end of the day especially after work - massaging it on my legs and feet and combining it with Clarins foot cream. I find that the oil drastically cuts down any feeling of bloating I usually get following a meal, and it also helps to relieve any swelling I may get from standing on my feet all day. It sounds weird, but if you use this at night make sure to use the restroom before you go to bed because if you have a full bladder, you'll definitely wake up in the night to go pee! It helps to facilitate the drainage of any extra water weight that's in your body. I'm really impressed with the majority of Clarins skincare and bodycare because the products really do work as promised. My only gripe with this product is the packaging design - I wish it would have some kind of dropper attachment or a squeeze bottle.

I bought this following a friend's recommendation. Have been using it religiously for two weeks with Total Body Lift and Body Shaping Cream and I definitely see a notable improvement to my lower body and abdomen. Thank G-d for these products. They have really changed the appearance of my skin and have provided firmness where I did not previously have any. People have even told me I look slimmer. Definitely recommend these three products. I cannot pinpoint the effectiveness of each one individually because I have been using them together, twice daily.

Anti-Eau literally means "No Water". This is probably my favorite oil of all the Clarins oils! I apply it in the shower and seal it with cold water in the summer before applying my other body products. In the winter, I just put it on when I get out of the shower. It is 100% plant extracts (Broom, Marjoram, Hazelnut Oil). It helps to tighten and refine the skin.

I do not have much cellulite but some water retention time to time. I massage this oil to my upper legs and hips before going to bed and wake up with perfectly moisturized and slim thighs. Excellent product but a little expensive...

It works, darn expensive but it does. The smell is so great and when you use it with the body supplement is more effective. With the combination, 2 inches are gone from each thighs. The oil is also great for dry skin. Try using it after shower, it is so relaxing and slimming.

Felt much lighter when using this product in the evening with tonic oil in the morning. :)

I started using this as a skeptic...I was happily wrong. I have always had little dimpling in my thighs and butt even though not overweight, but using this in the evenings and Toning Body oil in the mornings, my legs have really toned and smoothed. Let's just say I'm much happier putting on shorts! I love the aroma and moisturizing effects and will definately keep these on hand! Thank you Clarins!

I keep coming back to this. I've had cellulite and water retention on my thighs ever since the age of about 13 which increased as time went by. I'm now 25...
I was very sceptical but it really did decrease my water retention and made my legs supple, less heavy and even toned, also nicely moisturized.
I'm not a huge fan of the fragrance that comes from the essential oils but I don't mind it either. I used this at night on moist legs and followed with cool shower.
I used the Huile Tonic in the mornings too but found this to be a little more suited to my needs hence improving my situation more.
You have to use regularly to see results.
