Rated 5 out of 5Â by ginger11 flawless tan
As a former beauty therapist I have had the pleasure of working with many self tan products... I have to say I use a lot of clarins products and the self tan gel is the best I have ever used..I use it mainly on my face,it is hydrating and leaves my skin with a dewy complexion.. it takes around four hours to develop with being light skinned and auburn hair, no orange colour..just a natural appearance.. I don't even wear foundation ..the colour is that good. I would recommend it||
Rated 5 out of 5Â by Dolly Best fake tan ever
I have been indulging in this fake tan gel now for many years. It is the best tan on the market. I barely notice the smell any more, and it glides smoothly on with a mitt, leaves no streaks and is the most natural looking tan, second only to a week lounging by a sky blue infinity pool in the South of France. Congratulations Clarins...I love it !!!!!

One of my favourite products. Easy to apply, doesn't smell and looks totally natural.
Rated 3 out of 5Â by jenna123 fairly good
Bought this tan as it has quite good reviews. I wasnt disappointed, but i wasnt overly impressed either. Its a clear gel which initially i liked, until i woke up with a few dodgy patches of tan which i could have corrected at the time had i been able to see where i was putting it. However, its easy to apply and dries quickly. I usually put it on before bed and a tan has developed when i get up. Quite a good shade, not too orangey like many tans. Smells quite unpleasant when applied, but no noticable smell once dried.
So like i said, not fantastic but definately not bad either.
I would buy again

I buy a lot of Clarins products and I really like them so when I was look for a self tanning product I thought I would give this a try. Let's be honest, it smells like fake tan but only for the day you put it on. And given that it takes a couple of hours to develop I would go with applying it the day before any event/holiday. However, the gel is easy to apply and the results are fantastic - really natural, glowing tan. I bought this to even out my tan as my arms are always so much darker than my legs and it has worked really well. As always there are the usual pit falls to be avoided - make sure you exfoliate and shave/wax before you apply the gel, don't use a brush exfoliator the day after you apply the gel as you will be left with a horrible streaky mess and don't apply too thickly as it takes a while to dry. However, I have found that you can apply apply directly after shaving and your legs still look great (I was a little wary as I have quite dry skin about not moisturising but this moisturises as well). Also you can shave the day after applying and it doesn't affect the colour, it just strips a little away. I put some on 15 minutes before wearing a white dress on a hot day and there was no colour transfer, it doesn't 'leak' either when you sweat as I have noticed with other products in the past. I would definitely buy this again.
Rated 4 out of 5Â by Hampton Great colour but...
I took ages to choose which self tanner to buy because I am going to a wedding and as I am in my late fifties I did not want to look ridiculous with orange skin. In the past I have used St Tropez but the after smell is a dead giveaway when you want to make it look like you are just back from somewhere glamorous. So many reviews said this was a great colour, smelt of lovely citrus and did not come off on your clothes so I gave this a go. Well I can confidently assure you that it gives a great colour. You can apply it once for a mere hint of a tint or simply re apply to build up the depth of shade you want. Gorgeous natural tan 5/5. Smell? Sorry, it smells of tan. Yes a hint if citrus but nevertheless the unmistakable tan aroma. I think it smells exactly like the St Tropez. The instructions on the box are terrible. They don't tell you how long it will last. They don't tell you it takes about 3 to 4 hours to take effect, they don't tell you it has to be washed off either. I had to read reviews for that info. I would definitely use a mitt too. Even when I washed my hands some residue was left. It takes quite a while to dry. Your skin feels sticky for a long time after application. But on the other hand your skin is left glowing and feelin moisturized. The gel is clear so you need to apply it very methodically, being aware of where you have rubbed it. But it really does not streak and glides on easily. And your bed clothes are safe.Final conclusion. If this product had no smell it would rate very highly but the smell is the only drawback for me personally. Yes I would buy it again but I will apply it a couple of days ahead of the big day, in the hope that the smell has worn away.

A wonderful lightweight tanning gel, that does not look fake, like other tanning gels.No danger of looking tangoed with this! I was first introduced tothis product by obtaining a small sample from a magazine, 14 years ago! It has been in my bathroom cabinet ever since!

Being pale skinned and blonde I really struggle to find natural looking tanners - I will look no further!! This gel is easy to apply and it does dry instantly. The colour takes about 4 hours to fully develop but looks so natural when it does. After one fine layer application friends asked had I been out in the sun. As this is lightweight you can also use it on your face without any risk of blocked pores/breakouts. I have tried applying the gel on two consecutive days and was surprised that the colour hadn't turned the usual orange.
Bonus points - it does not rub off onto clothing or bedding and doesn't have the usual strong smell of fake tan. This is definitely worth the money!!
