As what most of you already know, my first love for skincare started with Clarins. It got bigger and is now extended to their body care products.
I was chubby growing up, but when I turned 18, I started losing weight. I can’t believe to see curves I never thought I have. It was one of the best few years of my life. Until I got married at 20 and eventually had 2 kids. Now I have on and off Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome and I gained more weight now that I have hypothyroidism. Last year, I reached 195 lbs.
A few years ago, I wore my first swimwear top after having 2 kids. I was 170 lbs back then. I wasn’t THAT confident. This is what led to me to try Clarins body care products.
The Body Shaping Cream is my favorite because of the heat and warm feeling I get in every application. It is a thick body cream that redefines, contours and reshapes the body. It has poppy extract that reduces the look of stubborn curves and caffeine that is known for its slimming effect. It moisturizes the skin well. This is why though I’m huge in weight, my body still maintains its curves and shape.
After a few years, I was able to wear a whole swimsuit. Float swimwear creates the best swimwear for plussize. At this time, I’m already at 180 lbs.
I’m also using Clarins Contour Oil. Our knee and calf areas aren’t all fats, they have muscles too! The Clarins Contour Oil tones that – same goes with the arms and shoulder muscles we have. It is easily absorbed by the body and leaves the skin hydrated and supple. It is a must for you to massage the product well for the body to absorb the product.
Because of its ability to remove water out of your body, it makes you pee more. As we age, the body has more issues with water retention. Hence, making our bodies look swollen. Eating salty foods make our body gain water weight too. Clarins Contour Oil makes most parts of the body look less swollen or not swollen at all. I love that it doesn’t leave my legs looking oily, but it leaves them shiny and well-defined. Plus, the scent is too relaxing for you not to try.
I bought these products 2 years ago after I fell in love with the first 2 Clarins body care products I had.
The Super Restorative Redefining Body Care gives a warm feeling too, just like the Body Shaping Cream. It helps define the slackened skin around the abdomen and waist. This saved me from my dirty stretch marks.
I don’t have abs and I have ugly flabs, but with Clarins Super Restorative Redefining Body Care, my upper midriff looks great, even after stretch marks and all. Not only that, my stretch marks became lighter without me noticing it. I completely forgot I have stretch marks. This product is expected to be used by women of aged 50 and up but I’m using it as early as now to avoid body aging and sagging.
The Clarins Body Fit Anti-Cellulite is the most unrealistic product amongst all the 4 bodycare products I’ve tried. I mean, yes I know Clarins body care products can tone muscles, reduce stubborn fat, remove water retention, and clean stretch marks, but to remove cellulites? I doubt that!
Like what I said I already reached 205 lbs before. Cellulites are just one of my body problems. I can’t really say that Clarins Body Fit ultimately removed it because up until now I’m still obese and cellulites will forever haunt me. But there’s one thing I know is sure, my cellulites become smaller and fewer in every application. They just tend to go back a few days after I stop applying Clarins Body Fit.
Clarins Body Fit also feels warm in every application. It lifts my butt, thighs and abdomen. It also helps me sweat more even without exercise or prep my body before exercise. I love how my skin feels tighter and firmer after use. It also helps me lose weight in the midriff section of my body. It is impossible to remove all the cellulites but I see hope and cellulite reduction with this product.
Clarins offers a wide variety of skin and body care products. You don’t really have to take my word for it. Ask for a free sample and see for yourself. They also offer bigger discounts during your birthday month. I don’t really exercise and my activities are low but I’m able to maintain a healthy, firmer body with Clarins.
