Review: Clarins Moisture-Rich Body Lotion for Dry Skin

If winter's dropping temperatures has your skin shrivelling up like the last leftover prunes forgotten in your grandma's dried fruit pack (I'll spare you the graphic descriptions I had planned for itching, flaking and dull, ashen skin), you'll know how important a decent body cream is.


Exhibit A


It's an oil-rich formula that contains decent amounts of Peanut oil, Shea Butter and Candlenut extract (Candlenut is toning and softening. Do note that this lotion also has a high mineral oil content - I would have loved it if the formula was vegetable oils only, and I actually felt a little sad when I saw this). Furthermore, it contains AHA's to keep skin radiant, as well as Orange Blossom extract to tone. Of course Clarins wouldn't be Clarins without the signature plant extracts - Olive, Peach and Pea extracts in this case to further tone, moisturise and soothe.


Clarins Moisture Rich Body Lotion


I love the Clarins Moisture Rich Lotion because it even though the formula is super rich, the texture is still soft enough to be squeezed out of a tube - this always wins points in my book from both a hygiene and convenience point of view. Texture-wise, it's definitely not thin (I tend to jump to this conclusion when I see the word 'lotion'), but it's clearly formulated brilliantly - it spreads very easily, and leaves the slightest, thinnest sheen to protect your skin against the elements and eliminate dull and dreary dead-skin appearance.

I'm almost at the end of my tube, and it's one of the products that made my list of things that I'll be replenishing. I nearly forgot to mention - it has a soft, subtle fruity scent (nothing crazy OTT Tutti Frutti) that gives me that 'I'm special' feeling.

Available at Clarins counters, R365 for 200ml.
