Liquid Bronze Self Tanning
Will NOT dry/breakout sensitive skin. Great color!
I'm a 30 yr old, frugal & very fair skinned girl. I'm talking FAIR! You can see my veins in my arms and the circles under my eyes are awful. I've tried, and I seriously mean this, every face self tanner I could find in stores over the years. I had all kinds of issues including allergic reactions (I don't do well with fragrances), turning orange, smelling like tanner, and the worst - SUPER dry skin. I eventually just accepted the dry skin was inevitable with face tanner. I'd have to deal with it because, let's face it, we all look better with some color. My skin tends to be oily around my nose and chin, dry everywhere else. I finally splurged on this after finding it raved on in multiple blogs & sites. Boy, I AM SO GLAD I DID.
A few notes: you do not need to use a pad/swab/etc - imagine how much you are wasting (I told you I was frugal). I just squirt some on my fingertips, dab it on a few spots on my face (cheeks, under eyes, forehead, nose & chin), then rub in with my fingers. Be careful to blend near, but not too much into, your hairline! Then, wash your hands!
I've found I do best, once I've achieved the color I want, when I apply a little (nickel sized) amount every night (though it is fine under makeup). If you put more on, (thicker, more generous amounts), you will get a deeper color. I suggest starting small because you can build up, but can't take away.
If you exfoliate, (I use clarisonic a few times a week), expect it to wash away your tan. After exfoliating, add moisturizer, let it sink in, then add tanner. I almost always also use this with moisturizer, but when I don't, I'm so pleased it DOES NOT DRY MY SKIN OUT. I've had no breakout or drying problems.
I've had this bottle for 6+ months and am somewhere between 1/4 or 1/3 through it. So, it lasts a while (if you don't waste it on a swab/pad).
I love love love this tanner, and even though I'm frugal, I'll forever gladly pay $35 a bottle. It's great. I now just need to find a travel size one.
I never-ever right reviews, but hope this helps someone - if I'd have found this all out years ago, I'd have saved myself a ton of trouble! Enjoy!

First review from a guy
So yeah, I'm a guy and I use this product. I put it on at night, and the next day after a shower I'm good to go. Gives me a good natural bronze look without attracting unwanted attention to the fact that I'm a guy using a self tanner. I've been using it for almost two years now and can't live without it!

Works with your own skin tone
This product is excellent. I've been using it for well over 7 years. It works with your own skin tone. I find that I have never needed foundation. After application all I need is lotion. I love this product. A satisfied customer.Thank you Clarins.

Great self tanner for face
I love this product. I use it on the weekends after exfoliating my face. I think I look healthier after applying - it gives a nice glow. I would highly recommend it.
