I was hoping this would be my miracle deo but it's not to be. Fortunately I bought it in the winter, so I was able to use it up and it did a decent job. But I noticed that it would not stand up to a workout, so I only used it on days that I didn't go to the gym. I definitely wouldn't trust it in the summer. It also irritated my underarms slightly. Considering the price it was …Read more

I'm afraid this didn't work for me. I initially bought it to use to lighten my under eye circles since some of the reviews mentioned they found it effective for this. I also used it all over my face.

I'm not acne-prone nor do I react badly to products but this caused odd pimples ON my lash line. Very strange. They weren't that obvious and went away quite quickly so …

EDIT: I've knocked this down a point since my nails stopped improving after the review. Also they do not peel any longer, they are still not as strong and smooth as I would hope

ORIGINAL REVIEW
This is one of the few products that is irreplaceable for me. My nails have never been great, but in the last year they were constantly peeling so they looked awful without polish and …

Self Tanners - Garnier - Ambre Solaire No Streaks Bronzer Dry Body Mist

Adding to the positive reviews. This is my HG right now. Admittedly I don't get dark with this, but it's a completely fuss-free way to get a light tan. Usually no matter how careful I am, my lower legs are prone to streaking, but not with this and fades perfectly. I do give a very quick blend with a self-tanning mitt, though it's probably not necessary. It dries literally in a …Read more

This is an HG for me. I've always had a problem with flaking around my nose, even with exfoliation and this cleanser with the cloth has completely gotten rid of that. My face always feels really smooth after using this and there's no need for extra exfoliation. I only use it in the morning, as I don't like it to take off makeup. I find even using a separate eye make-up remover, it …Read more

This is a review for the Deep Tan Luxe in the tube bottle. This product seems to be getting good reviews, but from my experience, keep your receipt. This went on ok initially but the colour wasn't amazing - slightly yellow cast which got worse as it faded. It definitely didn't go on completely streak-free (I'm pretty good at self-tanning) and I hate how it fades. I goes quickly …Read more

I picked this up on the weekend based on the reviews here and so far I'm not disappointed. This is definitely matte - it dries almost instantly and did a good job of controlling my oil with only a slight touch-up of powder needed mid-day. It goes on a bit white to begin with but disappears almost instantly and didn't sting at all on application. It did ball-up a bit when I first put it …Read more

I've been using lemon juice for a couple of purposes:

SELF-TANNER REMOVER: I find my self-tan tends to stick more to certain areas of my body, so once a week when I'm ready for a new coat I use bottled lemon juice to remove the excess so it doesn't build up and start looking patchy. I find it works best to do this AFTER my shower when the tanner is a bit …

Sep/06/2008

Edit - while I don't dislike this product, I don't use it anymore. I found it never really settled into my skin as much as I like and would leave a residue on my powder brush. Now I tend to use Laura Mercier tinted moisturizer with SPF on normal days (living in the UK there isn't a hugh amount of sun exposure) and a higher-factor sunscreen if I'm in prolonged sunlight so I …Read more

I've been using this as a hair clarifier. The first time I used I my hair definitely felt lighter and cleaner and the blond looked a lot better. So I thought I'd start using it several times a week, but lately my hair has felt quite dry and difficult to comb through, so I think this is best to only used 1 or 2x a month for me. For info, I have medium length brown hair with blond …Read more
