Svelte down

Text: Renée Batchelor

Yes, we all know the spiel about exercise and diet being the best way to a slim bod. But a little help from this wonder cream doesn’t hurt

Clarins is renowned for its efficacious body products, like the Tonic Body Treatment Oil which mums-to-be slather generously on their burgeoning bellies to stave off stretch marks. The new and improved version of its Body Shaping Cream is slated to be yet another genie in a bottle of sorts. The particular wish it'll grant? It promises to slim the waist, tummy and upper arms — problem areas for many women. How exactly does it work? Poppy extract in the formula targets the stubborn fat in these areas slowing down the storage of fat and stimulating its release, so with continuous application — yes and the requisite diet and exercise — you'll be able to sculpt and reshape your bod. We love the product for its gorgeous texture and long-term benefits. Try it for a few weeks to see improvements in your skin texture.

Clarins Body Shaping Cream, $98, is available now at Clarins counters and stores.
