I love a good face and body exfoliator and I'm one of those people that use 
regularly as part of my beauty regime and I really don't find it a chore, 
as there is nothing nicer than the feeling of a smooth, soft and revitalised skin
 and considering the little effort required, it yields maximum results.
An exfoliator for the face or body is the one product that gives instant results
 that you can both see and feel.
If you don't use an exfoliator then now is the time, as it's never too late to 
introduce to your beauty routine.

I have learnt that face, lip, hand and body exfoliation becomes even more i
mportant with age, as we need to encourage and stimulate the skins 
cell renewal process, which naturally slows with age.

Body Polishers, scrubs and exfoliators, call them what you may,
 all pretty much do the same thing and that's to remove the surface 
layer of the dead, drying skin cells that build up over time. 
This build-up is responsible for giving the skin that rough, dull and uneven 
appearance and feel to our skin whether it be on your face or body.

Exfoliators for the body generally comprise of coarser grains than those used
 on the face and I personally love a coarser type of scrub. 
I feel that they are far more efficient at the exfoliation process and leave the skin 
feeling wonderfully smooth, soft and glowing.
As with most exfoliating type products you can control the degree of exfoliation
 by adding more or less water on application.
(If your skin leans more towards the sensitive side then finer granules would be more suited)

To say that I have used so many body scrubs etc. over my years I cannot believe
 that the Clarins Tonic Body Polisher with Essential Oils escaped my
 "beady beauty eye", 
but it did much to my annoyance and loss.

Having started my beauty career here in South Africa with Clarins, 
firstly as a counter consultant and then as a rep, I have a fond appreciation 
and respect for the brand. 

Originally Clarins had 3 specific body oils on offer:

Tonic Oil (Firmness & Tone)
Relaxing Oil (Soothing & Relaxing)
Anti-Eau Oil (Anti Water & Fluid Retention)

They no longer have the Anti-Eau Oil, but have extended their product offering
 within the Relax and Tonic ranges, which I'm happy about.

The clever people at Clarins have included in their Tonic Body Polisher 
a wonderful mix of
100% essential oils including Rosemary, Rosewood, Mint, Hazelnut & Geranium 
These essential oils not only promote a feeling of well being, 
as they smell amazing, but more importantly help to both respect the 
natural hydrolipidic film and nourish our skin post exfoliation.

The granules in this polisher are made up of a mixture of Sugar and Salt crystals
 from the Camargue region in the South of France 
(I have been lucky to have visited this beautiful region)
This mixture is what eliminates those dead cells, whilst deep cleansing the skin 
to reveal a smoother, brighter and more toned skin.

The inclusion of one of my favourite ingredients Shea Butter along with Hazelnut Oil 
make this body polisher super nourishing and softening on the skin.
This body polisher is also a perfect product to prep the skin prior to the application 
of a self tan, as it ensures an even and streak free bronzed result.

Body exfoliators are easy peasy to use:
Use once or twice a week. Lightly massage into clean, damp skin, concentrating 
on areas of rough skin: elbows, knees, feet. Rinse well.
(Remember it's always advisable to use a moisturising product immediately 
after any skin exfoliating)

I fell in love with this product as soon as I opened the jar, as it truly smells 
divine and the  aromas immediately work their magic to give you a 
feeling of well being.

It's my "Spa In A Jar" and as if it couldn't get any better, the Body Polisher is 
super effective at what it's name suggests and that's...
Polishing the Body
