Clarins gave me baby-soft skin

I spend a small fortune on my make-up and tend to cheap-out when it comes to skin care.

A few weeks ago, I decided to treat myself and bought a $50 exfoliant (instead of either a) not using one; or, b) using one the one I bought from The Body Shop a year ago that leaves my shower full of sandy grains).

I had been messing around with self-tanning lotion and knew it was time to bite the bullet and buy a decent exfoliant. I asked the cosmetician from my neighbourhood Shoppers what she recommended. Without missing a beat, she suggested one of two products from Clairns. I sampled both and decided on the new Toning Body Polisher with essential oils. Why? Because it was a smidge cheaper than the Smoothing Body Scrub and I liked how it smelled.

After the first use, my skin was noticeably softer. There wasn’t a huge residue in the bathtub and I smelled amazing! Actually, my whole house smells amazing for an entire day after I use this product.

Anyway, now I’m hooked. How about you? Have you tried any new beauty products this summer that you don’t know how you lived without?


  1. wow that sounds fantastic!!!

    yes i discovered the best at home self tanner ever - LOREAL AIR BRUSH in the can - so fab - doesn't come off for like 5 days!!

  2. I love it!

    Glad L'Oreal Air Brush worked for you. I'm scared I'd make a huge mess with a spray on tanning product. I have enough trouble with the creams and there is more control. lol!

  3. After your recommendation, I will try Toning Body Polisher. I use their body scrub right now (I still have some of their previous version). Thanks for the tip.

    Kim, I think the two products are quite similar. You may want to wait until your body scrub runs out first.
