I love a good body scrub and I do love Clarins. Clarins make two body scrubs: Toning Body Polisher and Smoothing Body Scrub , and I actually have both.
They both are very different but both are brilliant. So which one is the best for you?
Toning Body Polisher, £30/$40 for 200 ml
This is my personal favoutite and there are a lot of reasons for that. First of all, I love the texture, it’s a mix of sugar, salt crystals and essential body oils. I love how super smooth and silky my skin feels afterwards. I personally use it on the dry skin and the effect is fantastic. Plus you don’t need that much, which I was surprised about, as usually with a similar texture, you end up using lots of product.
One more thing that I absolutely have to mention is the scent! I love
heavily scented body products so this one is a perfect one for me! It combines essential oils of Rosemary, Rosewood and Mint. And it is strong! But I personally find that it lifts my spirit and improves my mood. I can feel the aroma of the scrub even in the other rooms and it stays in the bathroom for some time.
But if you want something more delicate and with a subtle scent,
Smoothing Body Scrub, £28/$36 for 200 ml
is a better option for you! This product is also great for exfoliating. But it is more gentle than the body polisher (it contains bamboo powders). It has a light powdery scent and has some very finely milled particles which leave your skin ready for the following products like lotions/creams/butter.
I also love using it before tanning or waxing.
Here is a photo which, hopefully, will tell you more about the texture.
As I’ve said, both products are amazing and I would not expect anything else from Clarins, so it depends on your taste.
I personally like Toning Body Polisher more and would re-purchase it in the future, for sure.
And what is your personal favourite scrub?
