After a grueling singles tennis match, I really enjoy Clarins Huile Anti-Eau Body Treatment Oil, it is very soothing for sore calf muscles, thighs, shoulders and forearms.  

Mix it with a tiny bit of water and smooth, preferably before the shower, really helps to loosen up tight muscles and heavy feeling legs !!

Another big favorite is the Huile Tonique, perfect for toning those legs, tummy, all over where you need strengthening! A must!!!

From the Clarins website~
Clarins’ #1 selling body oil — with 100% pure plant extracts including Rosemary, Geranium and Mint — helps firm, tone and improve elasticity, reducing the appearance of stretch marks resulting from pregnancy. Hazelnut Oil softens, smooths and hydrates by locking in moisture. Aromatic natural botanicals promote an overall feeling of well-being. Preservative-free.
