This is an amazing self-tanner. It has a very nice color, and it doesn't make you orange or like you have a skin problem. Though, it is expensive and it takes a long while to dry, it is worth it. Also, another thing that is upsetting is that it doesn't stick to your skin for too many days. You'll need to use it every other day if you want to keep your skin to keep that color, and also.

I love this Clarins tanner! I have very very fair skin so I made sure to tan myself very slowly and thoroughly to avoid streaking at all costs! To give you an idea of how tanned I went after one use: I use MAC Studio Fix Fluid foundation and am naturally NC15. After using this Clarins tanner I became NC25 which matched perfectly!
I am totally glowing after using this product and all of my friends have noticed and commented on the difference!
This tanner does take a long time to develop. I actually apply it before I go to bed and sleep in a robe and rinse it off the next morning. It was quite a shock when I first saw myself after letting it develop overnight but once I had applied my normal makeup as well it was great and had no streaking.
I know that Clarins has made an effort to mask that "tanner smell" that all self tanners unfortunately have - and when applying the product it doesn't smell too bad but the next morning the smell is more noticeable and not particularly pleasant. I think this is a small price to pay though considering the quality of tan you get out of it.
The thing that I have to fault this product on is price. This tanner is very expensive and I find that I do run out of it quickly. If you can afford it though or even if you bought it and saved it for use before special occasions I highly recommend it. Great product.

This is the first self tanner I've ever tried and I LOVE IT! I'm very very pale so I really need a touch of bronze in my life! This tanner does that without make me look orange or like and an Oympa Loompa!! In other words... The result after one layer(the day after the application) is a natural golden finish which is exactly what I was looking for!!! I only used this on my legs but I will definitely use it all over my entire body(except face). The gel and tinted form was very helpful at the application because I was able to see where it was! The regular price it's not that high(i think it is around 30-35euros)but I bought it on sale for 18 euros!! I will surely buy this again!!
Tip:make sure you exfoliate really good!! If you don't it will be a bit sticky.

This product is amazing.
I have tried to many self tanners before and this one is by the my new favorite. It doesn't smell awful like other ones and did not streak at all or turn orange on my super fair skin. I am very happy with this product and will defintely will buy this again.

I use this product to self-tan my face, but not my body because it's too expensive to go around. This is my #1 selftanner for face. (my #1 body self tanner is L'Oreal Sublime Bronze airbrush)
- Smells nice when you apply
- Nice little tub, which is useful when you use a self tanning glove which I do
- The "tackiness" of it helps keep the stuff on my face. My skin is really oily and does not "take" most self tanners. I end up either splotchy or never seeing any tan because the oils in my skin ruin the developing of the self tanner. This stuff really STICKS. It's the #1 reason I use this
- The colour is decent. Not the best or most natural, but in the point before, I use it because it's one of the only ones that stay on with my oily face.
- Smells awful when developing and even a day later after you've washed your skin (but what self tanners don't)
- It's pretty pricey. It costs $41 a tub (in Canada) and that's okay because I use it only for my face, but I coudn't afford to use it for my whole body
- It does take a while to dry, but I only use it on my face so it doesn't hinder my movement much afterwards
- Can't wear this under makeup or out in public later. It looks like you've had vaseline smeared on your face. I put it on before bed like a night cream every third night.

It smells like chocolate and does not turn you orange. I don't know if things can get any better than that. It give you a nice, slightly bronzed look. It looks even better on tan skin because you already have a good base on which to build a layer to 2 of the self tanner. It will leave you looking golden bronzed. Very beautiful. The only bad thing about this is that it does not keep well. If you do plan to get it, make sure you finish it within the first 3-4 months.

The Good: It smells fine, not as bad as other self tanners I've tried. It has a nice texture and seemed to settle into my skin fairly quickly. It has a slight tint to it so you can see where you are applying the product. It wore for about 5 days and did fade evenly.
The Bad: I looked pretty orange. I was hoping I was being paranoid and just not used to seeing my fair complexion (NW20) with color....but no, it was true. A trustworthy friend confirmed it when I asked "do I look orange?" I've had better luck with other Clarins tanners. This one is NOT HG for me.

I've used two jars of this already, and got my mother hooked on it as well.
I was always nervous to try a ST because I was afraid to lol orange and blotchy. The reason I decided to try this one in particular was because I read somewhere that Fergie adds it to her moisturizer, and I love her skin tone. This ST iproved to be fantastic due to it's natural color, easy-application, it lasts long, and it fades evenly. I even used it on my face and it didn't clog my pores.
My HG, since I'm too afraid to experiment with STs.

This is my go to self tanner! I have not found a better one! It's great because you can use it on your face and body! Smells like peaches, oppose to most that smell like melted sugar!
I love it because they use DHA as all self tanners do however they also use Cocoa to give more of a bronzy tan rather then an orangey tan that looks fake!
It's great too because it moisturizes without feeling heavy or sticky.

nice smell in the jar (kind of like... floral chocolate?), golden, shimmery bronze color. applies evenly and develops to a nice, rich golden-bronze... takes anywhere from 3-7 days to fade, but fades evenly. i use this mainly for dance competitions - i get a dark magic/mystic tan as a base, then layer this for about 2 nights, and then the night before the competition, if i'm not dark enough, i'll get a second spray tan (medium) for a boost. for summers... it'll maintain a nice, natural glow if you apply every 3-4 days, even on my very fair, neutral asian skin (MAC NC15/20, bobbi brown cool beige, bareminerals fair). i use rubber gloves though, because your hands do turn pretty orange with applications, even if you put hand cream before & wash after. however, i will use SMALL amounts on the tops of my hands so that it doesn't look like my hands have been forgotten.
i apply all over, face, neck, arms & legs, torso, back, tops of hands & feet (remember to put petrolem jelly/cream on your nails & cuticles, and a thin layer of cream all over your hands before you apply, so it doesn't turn too dark) for a nice, natural, even glow. it turns me from NC15 to about an NC25-35, depending on how many days i layer it. i find it works best if you apply before you sleep & rinse it off in the morning with cool water.
it also goes on even better if you exfoliate before the first application & refrain from using loofahs/sponges etc. while you have the tan (prolongs the tan).
even application, beautiful color (no orange), develops fairly dark after 1 application, easy application. fades very naturally and evenly too. did not cause any problems for me on my dry/combo skin - no dryness, and no breaking out either. left a moisturizing, silky texture.
EXPENSIVE. it's about $55 canadian... for essentially about 4.5 ounces (half a measuring cup) of cream. smell - smells nice in the beginning, BUT still has the telltale self-tanner (warm dirt? dusty biscuits?) smell once it starts working.
also, when i stopped using it and took it out a few months later for a second competition, i had found that the half a jar of cream i had left had liquefied into a pool of goo (NOT at all like the texture it was when i initially purchased it, it had turned from a nice, whipped gel-cream consistency into a oily, gooey, liquid-y consistency)... NOT cool, since i paid a hefty sum for this (you can get 2 professional spray tans for the price of this cream, for essentially darker, and more competition-intensity results).
i liked it in the beginning, but i don't know if i'll repurchase, even as a "booster" cream for my spray tans since the cream DOES NOT KEEP WELL at all. jergens glow lotion or whatever it's called works much better, for a lot cheaper, and does not discintegrate into oblivion because i stop using it for a few months!
only get this cream if you plan on using it regularly, i.e. in the summer months, because the formula does change if you keep it without using it for several weeks. if you are the kind of person to use self-tanner regularly, then i would say that this is a great option for you, but if you're like me, and only bust it out for special occasions, then you're better off paying for the spray tan & buying a drugstore option to boost & maintain the professional results.
