A real hidden gem! This is the perfect face tanner (can be used for body as well). It’s fast acting, user friendly and no orange colouring to the skin tone. In the recent years I have limited sun exposure and am looking for alternative bronzing product. I’m not a fan of self tanners cuz of the orangey skin tones and have always declined tanning beds. To be honest I really hate the feel of sunscreen on my face but have finally found a skin tint/moisturizer that has a good feeling SPF. But I lack colour esp in the summer months. Onto this product... it comes in a small arcrylic bottle, twist top lid reveals a pointed tip which dispenses product in drops, turn the bottle upside down and there is a soft touch bottom that aids in dispersing the drops.The bottle is inverted (tip down) where you press/tap the bottom and drops are dispensed onto your facial moisturizer of choice that you already have set aside the amount needed for your daily skincare. Mix the moisturizer and desired drops well and apply to face. Within a couple hours a gradual bronzing is noticed. I use 3 drops for the first x3 days, then maintenance x3 drops every 2-3 days. I must stress this is not orangey in any way but more of a tan colouring.There is a subtle scent, definitely not overwhelming, Clarins products are often scented. The drops themselves are a semi-thick oily/viscous consistency and blend well w/ creams/lotions. I have not noticed any streaking or muddy appearance after 6wks of use, nor have I noticed any adverse skin reactions.Overall this is a fantastic fuss-free product that is part of my weekly skincare routine- love it!!!

I wanted to like this, but it just doesn't do much. Even if I use 6+ drops, the impact is minimal. To clarify, I don't use this on my face -- I use it on my legs, mixed with moisturizer -- so maybe my review isn't valid for the typical user. On a positive note, virtually no scent and it absorbs very quickly -- no stains on my sheets like with St Tropez.

I have been using this product for about 2 yrs now.I tan easily in Summer but my face is just too pale in Winter.I use 3 drops when I paused a few days or 2 drops every 2-3 days.I use it in the morning and sometimes even apply makeup after a few minutes. Golden glow by lunchtime :-)pros:- can be added to any cream, lotion or oil- customisable- even result every time- has never irritated my relatively sensitive skin- believable colour, i was NEVER asked if I used anything. Only got compliments how I look so fresh in Winter.- no self tanner smell!- the bottle lasts for ages, seriouslycon:- initial price to purchase - cheaper in FranceIf you have no results, your skin might be too exfoliated for the process to work. You actually need some dead skin cells for self tanners to develop colour.I exfoliate max. 1xweek.I am on my second bottle. 1 Bottle lasts me approx 1 year. I don`t use it in the summer, as I practically live outdoors then :-)I hope this was helpful.

So my skin is very fair, maybe NW13 or even paler. 4 drops mixed in 1/2 tsp lotion on my face at night for 2-3 nights gives me a very very light "tan". It looks as natural as any fake tan ever looks (this has DHA + erythrulose, so the 2 existing self tan agents). Haven't seen any streaking. I have dry flaky skin, but haven't noticed it getting drier from this either. I use it with a fairly heavy clinical body lotion. Edit: I lost patience one night and used 6 drops, after first rubbing quite a lot to get off a mascara, and it stung a bit and I woke up with a few red stingy bumps. So use as directed I guess. Pros: - *Very* minimalist formula means it doesn't interfere with the my skincare routine, which is my main thing with it. No oil-soluble ingredients, just water, DHA, alcohol, glycerin, aloe, erythrulose, xanthan gum, coloring, citric acid, preservatives and a musk perfume chemical (ethylene brassylate - it doesn't have a discernible "scent", though; this substance is often used lightly just to offset other smells). Fake tan smell is much much less intense than from the St Tropez products I have - barely noticeable really.Cons: - Expensive as hell, I use a cheaper fake tan lotion on neck and chest- Not cruelty free - Guessing folks with deeper skin than mine will get impatient with it. I do sometimes. It's probably not an option for anyone who regularly self-tans, or anyone with medium and deeper toned skin. Btw, DHA leaves skin much more prone to free radical damage from sunlight for at least 24 hours, so you should use serious SPF the next day even if you normally don't.

This product was presented to me at Sephora as a radiance booster. I decided to give it a try. It is absolutely one of the worst products I have ever used. It has a extremely sticky texture that does not absorb into the skin. I tried using for about one week and noticed zero benefits. It also interred with my other skin care. I am sad to have waisted the money on this, it went in the trash.

I've used it every day for a month - first with 2 drops, then i went up to 4, then 5 and eventually 6 (!) but it has done absolutely nothing whatsoever :(I usually use the Clarins Liquid Bronze but I tried this on recommendation from the lady at the John Lewis Clarins counter. I thought it would be good to add to my night time routine so I can wash it off in the morning and get rid of the weird fake tan smell you always get. I know this is a gradual tanner rather than a full strength fake tan but as I wear a high SPF every day and I have very fair skin I thought this would be perfect to maintain a soft summer glow.After reading all of these reviews think I must have bought a dud or something because no matter how much I use or what moisturiser I mix it with, it doesn't do a thing. Back to the Liquid Bronze for me...

This is great!I'm very fair, so any sort of tanning in the sun makes my skin red, dry and irritated. Also if I do get a very slight colour it lasts maybe a week. Considering the risks with tanning, I really wanted to try a self-tanner to not look so pasty all the time. Mixing 4-5 drops into moisturizer really gives a result in 2-3 days. The tiny bottle lasts a long time and the tan is very natural.

This is a great, really convenient, self tanner. It doesnt smell like most others do. I never had any streaks. I only want a hint of colour (especially in the winter) som maybe if you want to look REALLY tanned it might not be enough (I dont know, didnt try...) Im on my 3rd bottle now...I normally use one drop daily so one bottle lasts me for about 9 months. That justifies the price.

I have dry skin and self tanners always dry out my face (but it's ok on my body). I have tried Clarins' other products for my face with the same result - dry flaky skin...until I tried this product - I love it! I think because you mix it with your moisturizer, it counters the drying effects of DHA. This is a build-as-you-go so only use it until you get the desired colour and then use once or twice a week for maintenance. I

This is such a fab idea. Simply add a few drops to your moisturiser & it gradually builds up a gentle golden glow over e few hours. I use this on holiday as my legs never change colour :( and it looks so natural. I've had my bottle for a year now & still going strong ;)
