Self Tanning Instant Gel
I absolutely love this tanning product. I have used it for years now, and keep going back to it every year. One year I decided to stray and used a self-tanner from a drug store, and it was very hard to use and difficult to be streak-free. This gel self-tanner is so easy to use, but remember to apply to dry spots very sparingly (e.g., elbows and knees). The trick is to build color slowly, and giving yourself at least 4 applications before a beautiful golden color will be obvious. It builds slowly so that you don't end up with streaks. It also helps if you apply this, then let dry for 5-10 minutes then apply your usual lotion as this helps to reduce streaks. Please don't purchase this product if you are expecting a tan within a few hours, it will not be obvious unless you already have a base color. I hope this review helps!

Recemtly purchased for a trip to Cabo San Lucas. Gave me a "real tan" look without exposure to the harmful, aging rays from the sun. I will continue to use this product. I had extremely sensitive skin and had absolutely no reaction. No one does this better than Clarins.

Clarins new self tanner did not work for me & I even tried a second application. I had to go back to using their older tanner in a bottle. That one works. I was disappointed with this product and will not be buying it again. I highly recommend the self-tanner in the brown bottle.

Does not work on medium-toned skin
I am currently tan and looking for a self-tanner that matches my natural tan tone and can be applied before a special event in a few weeks after my tan fades. My skin tone is currently a light golden-brown color and I tried this product on my tan lines where my bikini was. It made no difference, even after putting on two layers of the product and waiting a few hours. Maybe everyone who's written a positive review of the product is very pale, but this does not give my skin any color at all.
