Rated 4.67 out of 5 stars
I was prone to stretch marks, cellulite & everything related from a very young age. I remember going through the traumatic stage of puberty, like it was yesterday. (Even though it was 30+ yrs ago) I had it all going on & I was so embarrassed. The end result was a lot of stretch marks in all the usual places. Fast forward until I was 25, pregnant with my 1st child. I knew this was supposed to be a glorious time, one that I should glow, and be proud.. but, I was scared out of my mind, from the 1st day I found out because I knew I was about to get stretch marks all over the place puberty had missed.. my stomach! I was the opposite of excited. I was talking to my best friend about it, (probably crying) and at the time, she was working at Saks 5th Ave in Beverly Hills, at one of the beauty counters. She mentioned that she was always seeing celebrities in there that were pregnant, buying this Clarins Oil. I immediately rushed down there & purchased it. From that day forward, I put it on every day. Every morning when I woke up, every night before I went to bed.. and when it got closer to my due date, any time I felt an itch. I even brought it to the hospital & rubbed on my stomach after my daughter was born, all day long.. I continued until I lost all the baby weight (over 80 lbs!!). Guess what? NOT A SINGLE STRETCH MARK!!!! This oil is from the heavens! It kept my skin in a constant state of hydration & allowed the skin to stretch outward, then back down & not a single change! 2 years later, I was pregnant with my son. Not a worry in the world!!! I did all the glowing & reveled in the magic of pregnancy, because I knew Clarins would get me through! It did! Not a single change. AMAZING! Now, as my daughter is in college & my son is in high school, I'm dealing with another fluctuation that I can't control. I had back surgery to remove discs, but it went everywhere but right. So, after a year and a half of steroid shots into my spin (epidural), I have almost gained my pregnancy weight & being that I'm no longer a 25 yr old, with perfect skin, I'm counting on Clarins to get me through... So far, so good. But, I have a long road ahead of me.
I tell everyone I know who is having a baby about this oil & not one time did it fail them. This is truly a miracle body oil. For reference, I went through 1 bottle every month, during both pregnancies. I recommend this oil to anyone facing body changes. It does take a little while to get used to the scent, but after you do, you will crave it! I remember every time the nurses or any visitors would enter my hospital room, they would stop & say how amazing it smelled!
Sorry about the book, but I feel very strongly about this product & completely trust the Clarins Brand. I have 3 things over the years in my beauty regime that I will never be without, always recommend & always trust. This is one of the 3. The other 2 are different brands, so I won't list. Just know... I spend a ridiculous amount of time & money on products, researching, testing & reviewing. This is everything it says & so much more!! xoxo.
I had heard miraculous things about this product when used during pregnancy as a preventative measure. Copious amounts of hype, ladies at the Clarins counter, and a sister who did not have one stretch mark during pregnancy. I've been using this product as directed 1-2 times a day. I've never skipped one day. I'm currently on my second bottle. Today I hit exactly 7 months pregnant and yesterday morning I discovered two palm-sized patches of light pink stretch marks on either side of my belly button. As it turns out my sister just had a really tiny baby, just over 5 pounds. I have gained weight as expected as I am carrying a baby that is much larger than my sisters. I would rather have a bigger, healthy baby and stretch marks than a premature, or unhealthy baby. I think if you are going to have stretch marks, it's going to happen. I don't think this product is a "miracle".

Every time I use this body oil after a shower I feel like I've given myself a mini spa treatment.

Love this body oil! It smells so nice and goes on easily. Feels luxurious!
ZJ2019 from Darien, CT
Love the consistency, and results on my body. I mix it both with water and sometimes with oil.
Gigi52 from Seattle
This oil smells sublime and really does tone with regular use. I have used it religiously for years. It smells like a spa and doesn't feel greasy on the skin. Please do NOT discontinue or change the formulation in any way. The only change I'd like to see is Clarins becoming 100% cruelty-free.
Paige from Nashville, TN
I really just can't stand the smell. If i put a few drops into unscented lotion it's fine. But if i use it like the directions say and put it on in the shower and then rinse it off it smells like a smokers cars.

I've been using this for several years!!! I'm addicted🤣
Try it one time and you'll see what I mean.
You can thank me later.

Can't say much about Toni I h as I just started using it a week ago but I love how luxurious it feels and how healthy my skin looks. It glows. Just use on skin still partially damp after shower. Scent is herbal and pleasant
AphroditeRitual from Arlington, VA
I just got the product and can't comment on any toning effects but I loved it when I applied this after the shower with skin still partially damp … aaah so luxurious and the herbal scent feels so good after appli action (a bit too herbal at the beginning but very nice after). I exercise and sweat and live the heath glow sexy effect this gives my skin after the shower.

I love the tonic during the winter months especially since it's so hydrating! The smell is the best though, I sometimes wear it as a scent
Daniellee from undisclosed
My husband pointed out my soft skin after the first use, and it continues to improve my skin! The smell is nice, it feels comforting and soothing when applied.

The best body oil I have used for the longest time

Reading the reviews I've noticed several things and it drives
me nuts. first, most of these reviews aren't helpful at all. i realized a lot of this product was gifted to customers and these ppl had absolutely no idea how to use the product and what it was for. commenting things like:
- "what a great anti aging oil!"
- "i feel so hydrated"
- "such a great at home spa experience"
- "love putting it on after my shower"
this is a body TREATMENT oil, that you rinse OFF with cold water AFTERWARD - not a hydrating body oil. and yes, they said this is a "reflection" of their many years of spa experience, that does not mean this product is meant for spa purposes. 1% of the reviews left mentioned any visible toning or firming by the treatment oil but zero included a timeline. One reviewer even said she put the body oil on AFTER MOISTURIZER.
When you, Clarins, claim this is your most popular product - i can't help but imagine a mass majority who grossly misuse it yet still love it and therefore mislead consumers like me who are seeking high performing products by dependable brands. im really disappointed by everything i saw here. i wont be buying products here afterall

NancyG from Los Angeles, CA
I am 7.5 months pregnant and I have been using this oil daily. My stretch marks came at 7 month and I was recommended this oil from my sister in law. So far it has stopped my stretch marks from getting worse. I lather the oil morning and night. Sometimes mid day.
BRMO from Long Island, NY
I certainly don't want to rinse this expensive oil off my body ! What's the purpose of rinsing it off in cool water. Plus I don't know how using a little will cover your whole body. Anyhow- I love the oil I just need a gallon of it
D Hilton from LV Nevada
I have been using this body oil Tonic for years- i love the way it glides on and absorbs nicely ( its meant to be used on damp skin ) i sometimes wet my hands to apply... it's gorgeous smell is like you're in a spa 🌿

The Tonic Body Treatment Oil arrived leaking. The box is soaked in the oil. After I opened it, I realize the lid and the bottle can't seal for some reason. I purchased this many times, this is the first time I had this issue.
Cassu from DC
Great for pregnancy and postpartum - I love the smell and the way it makes my skin feel
Lakecruiser2 from San Francisco, CA
Best skin hydration and balance, highly recommend!
APGH from Washington DC
Love this oil, specially when I am pregnant it has been amazing! I am now in my third pregnancy and even though my bellies are very big I do not have any stretch marks thanks to this incredible oil.
Ilsemoav from Panama
Great oil I love it, followed the instructions and it worked perfectly
pdiwan from FL
I received this tonic treatment oil complimentary from Clarins. I'm glad I had a chance to try out this Clarins Tonic Body Treatment Oil and I am so glad I did! This oil is incredibly nourishing and hydrating, leaving my skin feeling soft and smooth; the scent is also very pleasant and calming. I love that it is made with natural ingredients. After each application it leaves my skin feeling amazing.
gina s from Middleburg, FL
The Tonic Treatment Oil I received complimentary from Clarins has a beautiful texture! It absorbs easily into the skin and has a nice herbal scent. At first I thought the scent would be overpowering, but it is quite light once absorbed. Even my hubby started using it!
