Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not for me I won't be purchasing this product again. I bought this based on the reviews but I really didnt get on with this. The first issue is the smell. I appreciate most self tanners have that odd biscuity smell but this was very strong and lasted ages. The product itself is nice to apply, very soft and goes on well but takes an absolute age to dry. It was tacky on my skin for well over 1 hour after application. It is just not practice the not remain undressed for this length of time. The day after the tan was badly streaked and the colour was very orangy. It wasn't a natural shade at all. Overall dissapointed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Tanning Product Available This is quite simply the best Self Tanning product I have used. It goes on easily, very smooth and so far for me streak free. I just apply with my hands (washing them thoroughly afterwards). It gives a great colour and is easy to build a deeper tan with it. I usually put it on the day before I want it to be apparent. On me it takes a little while to absorb/dry, maybe 30 minutes to be safe before putting on clothes. It is worth the wait though as the next day I have a lovely natural colour. If you applied in the morning, you would have a tan by the evening though. Will always use this product now. Love it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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 5 by from 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 !!!!!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from 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

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent & easy 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.
