I'm around NC30 and use this in Bronze, this is one of the nicest facial self tanners I have used. I use this mainly in autumn and winter to keep my skin looking glowy and bronzed. This is not in your face orange (not on me) it's pretty subtle, but it does keep my skin from looking dull. It doesn't irritate my eczema sensitive dry skin which is a plus regarding that is has a pretty strong fragrance. I would repurchase and I already have a backup waiting for me.

I wanted to like this so much after reading so many good reviews, I purchased this in golden. Firstly it has a strong sweet sickly smell which lingers, the next morning it had hardly any tanning effect but broke me out. The lady on the Chanel counter assured me it would not break me out, I have tried it twice more and it has broke me out every time so it is definitely this product. Very disappointed, waste of money!

Disappointingly, this didn't do much for my complexion except give it a slightly jaundiced hue. Perhaps I should have bought the darker shade of 'Bronze' for better results, but with my too-light-for-mac-foundation skin tone I didn't want to risk looking like an Oompa Loompa and opted for the safer sounding 'Golden'. However, despite the lacklustre results, I will say that my skin tolerated this product surprisingly well. I usually break out in acne or a painful rash if I so much as glance at a new face lotion, but despite the strong fragrance and chemical sunscreen my skin stayed clear after a week of using this and I only experienced a bit of stinging around the eye area. Unfortunately I don't have the kind of money that allows me to go out and buy a different shade for experimentation so I'll have to accept that this wasn't for me and move on. I'll definitely by trying Chanel's other skincare products in the future, though! UPDATE TIME! I recently used this for a week to counteract my natural pastiness in the run-up to a friend's wedding and it burned the hell out of my skin. In the bin it goes!

I don't know if is me but this turned my face orange !! Even my 10 years old ask me why my face is orange :( . I have the Bronze colour and I m normally light to medium skin. I apply ones and was nearly no colour. Next day I apply second time and my skin turned not that dark but very orange !! So I regret spending 29Ģ for this when I can buy nearly 3 tubes of XEN TAN that is really the best on the market and have better looking self tan :-(

This is my HG self tan for the face. All the other products I've tried leave an uneven, blotchy & streaky finish, which I've had to cover up with foundation. Not this one. The result is a light, natural-looking glow. The lotion also smells nice (a bit like caramel?), which means you can wear it during the day. It's Chanel, so the price is a bit steep, but I bought this from the airport, so it wasn't too bad. I have it in bronze, and I'm not going to even try any other self tans, because this baby does the job so well!

best self tanner for face I've ever used! everything, yes everything I've tried before made me look orange and fake. I have very fair skin with red birthmarks and a few broken capillaries in it and I have tried to find the perfect selftanner for many years. I use the chanel one in "bronze" since "golden" is a bit too yellow for me. "bronze" really gives me the color I'd get if I would bake on the beach all day (I don't, I wear ss every day since I want to prevent wrinkles and sunspots).it smells nice, no obvious self tanner smell, nice texture, fool-proof to apply, no streaks, doesn't clog me, perfect.I do like to put moisturizer around my eyes, eyebrows and hairline first. I will try the avene self tanner as well since I got it as a present yesterday, I heard many good things about that one as well and will review it soon. but I doubt that it could be better than this one. good stuff.UPDATE: avene turns orange on me. but: I've been to sicily, we only had 2 sunny days and I wore lrp sunscreen 30 every day but still got a very blotchy tan...... used this bronzer after I got home and it evened it all out perfectly, my face looks healthy and glowing. please try this one.

Was looking for a good face tanner and read some good reviews on this so decided to try it. Pretty pricey, but hey it's Chanel. Doesn't have too much of a crazy self tanner smell, just a hint. Works great, no complaints.

So ive been trying out this tanner for a few days now & i will say it is not the wrost self tanner but for a $45 price tag for a small bottle for your face im not sure if its much better then the $10 stuff you can buy at your local grocery store. I dont hate it it is better then a few others ive tried but will not buy again due the price , the small bottle of it you get , the colour & it does have that self tanner smell as well. I bought the darker of the two shades and my skin tone is very fair so i thought i was taking a risk getting the darker might be to dark for my skin tone but totally opposite I didnt find it give much of a colour at all. 2.5 Star * *

First of all, I need to use self-tanners because of my acne-prone skin. This may sound a little bit weird, but the sun makes my acne worse, not better. Itīs not because of some medical treatments, but a special, lighter form of acne. My dermatologist gave me the advice to stay away form the sun and if I wanted to go out, then only with a high spf. Otherwise, I break out and my pores tend to clog even more.The result of all this is, if I want to have a bronzed, sunkissed look, I have to use a self-tanner. Unfortunately, my skin tends to look pale and grey, sometimes I have to deal with scars and darker spots because of the acne. Iīve got a neutral olive tone in my skin (NC20-25) and want to have that dewy, fresh and glowing look, that I adore so much.Anyway, thatīs the reason Iīm searching for a good self-tanner and have tested a few.But this one seems to be "the" self-tanner for me.The pros are: - Does not dry out my skin. I use it overnight and when I wake up, my skin looks good and not wrinkled.- Doesnīt make me break out.- Does not leave streaks on my face and is easily to apply, just like moisturizer.- Does not have any orange or red tone in it. Even after "building up" a deeper tan, I never noticed any orange or red undertone. This was a huge problem with all the other self-tanners. After first use, the seemed to work, but as I tried to build up, they turned orange. I used the golden, not the bronze shade, because I thought, it might work better with my skin tone. And it did. Other reviewers said, that you could never "build" too much with his one and itīs true. Even after several uses, you donīt look like a "self-tanner-accident", but like you had a long, nice beach-holiday. But notice: I have fair to medium skin. If you have dark skin, you might be disappointed.- Nice texture, like a light moisturizer.- Gives your face a nice glow.What I personally didnīt consider as a plus:-The smell. I know, for lots of people, itīs a big plus. It smells like a sweet cake and nothing like the typical self-tanner. But it is to sweet for my taste, as I like more clean and soapy scents.- The spf. Again, a big plus for other people and useless for me, because I only use it overnight. I tried it only because of the good reviews it received and found out:This is my hg!! Highly recommended.

I really really like this product. When the summer started, a couple of months ago, I decided to purchase a product for my face, because I'm so pale. The girl in the store told me this was the best product for the face. I bought it and haven't had any regrets about it. I was advised to get the darkest one (bronze) even though I'm really very pale! I was told the golden one hardly gives any color, so I wouldn't recommend that one. If you buy this, go for bronze. I can wear this easily and it doesn't look fake at all. It gives you that healthy and sunkissed look, but no way you'll look orange with this. I bought this in Europe and paid about 30 euros for it. That's a bit pricey, but you only need a little amount of product every time you use it. So it lasts very long!
