"Smooth, tone and nourish your skin from head to toe with the Clarins Firming/Toning Body Oil, which utilises the power of essential oils to improve skin elasticity whilst boosting well-being." - Kate, Escentual Beauty Team.   Why You'll Love The Clarins Firming & Toning Body Treatment Oil: Best-selling body oil that firms, tones, smooths and improves elasticity. Helps to reduce the appearance of stretch marks. Locks in moisture for a smooth, soft and satin-like finish. Gently perfumes the skin and promotes a sense of well-being. Made from 100% pure plant extracts. Safe for use during pregnancy.   What You Need To Know: A best-seller for a reason, Clarins' Firming and Toning Tonic Treatment Oil has been the go-to product for pregnant women since 1965. Why? It uses the power of essential oils to firm, smooth and nourish skin in a respectful, holistic way. The result of over seven decades of aromatherapy expertise, the luxurious oil features 100% pure plant extracts including rosemary, sweet-scented geranium and field mint essential oils - to improve the look and feel of your skin. It boosts elasticity and helps to prevent stretch marks while wrapping your body in hydration using hazelnut oil. Suitable for all skin types, the Tonic Body Treatment Oil is especially beneficial to those who are pregnant as it nourishes the body and prepares the skin for changes in weight and stretching.   Why It's Escentual: Although we love the effects that Clarins' silky oil has on the skin, we love its effect on the mind just as much! It releases the natural aroma of its key plant-based actives, perfuming your skin with a soothing herbaceous scent that promotes a sense of well-being with every use. Plus, taking the time to relax and massage the Firming/Toning Oil into your skin helps to refresh and revitalise your senses. But it's not just the scent that we're fans of; we also love how easily the oil sinks in, thanks to its lightweight texture. And the fact that it looks like liquid sunshine is a bonus - it's a treatment oil that you'll want on display in your bathroom. But this isn't an oil that just looks good; it also does good. With each purchase, a donation is made to Fondation Arthritis to support research programs for inflammatory rheumatic diseases, which is a cause close to the heart of Clarins' founder, Jacques Courtin-Clarins.   The Best Way To Use It: Use on damp skin two to three times a week. Apply a small amount all over the body or to specific areas of concern. Massage in gently, and then rinse off with cool water.   The Sustainable Side: The "Firming/Toning" Treatment Oil is held in a bottle made from 40% recycled glass. It can also be recycled after use, along with the outer carton, made using cardboard sourced from sustainably-managed forests.

I never review products, but just had to with this one. I am on to my second bottle of this Clarins Oil. I had my first baby just 10 months ago and am now 8 months pregnant again.
I got stretchmarks first time around at 7 months pregnant. Although I used other creams and oils last time, I was so upset when the stretchmarks literally came over about a week and turned my stomach purple, which made me so self conscious.
I had seen reviews for this oil and also the Clarins Stretch Mark Control cream this time. They were expensive on other websites but then found the amazing Escentuals website at such good prices and thought I would give them a go.
I have bought both products and applied religiously since I was 6 months pregnant this time. Firstly, I noticed that the redness and purpleness of my stretchmarks from the first pregnancy have dramatically reduced extremely quickly. Even my lovely husband keeps saying that they don't look that angry now, and they are definitely fading fast. And thats in two months!
And, the most exciting of all, at 8 months pregnant and a much bigger bump this time, I have not yet had one single new stretchmark!!! I cannot believe I have actually found products that work!!!
The oil is gorgeous to apply and smells divine. With the stretchmark control cream applied as well, they blend in together really well and sink into the skin beautifully. It feels like a wonderful beauty treat every time I apply them, and the scent is not overpowering with my high sense of smell due to pregnancy!
I would recommend (and already have!) both of this products a billion times over.
If like me, you want to avoid or dramatically reduce your stretchmarks, then give this combination a try.
The prices and Escentual website and service are the icing on the cake, so thank you Escentual a billion times over for making these products affordable for us ladies with babies!!!
