      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!

      The tan does not develop quickly; as a matter of fact, it takes hours before any tanning is noticeable. It is true that the more you apply it, the more tanned you get –and a beautiful, healthy looking one it is. Be sure to apply it correctly though, otherwise there may be blotches, especially over bony parts of the body; and to let it dry for about 10 minutes. I do not apply it on my face –it doesn't look right, since it makes my hormonal dark spots more noticeable, and because it takes a little while to dry, don't have much time during my morning make up routine.

      I have been searching for years for the perfect self tanner and have finally found it!! I have a fair complexion and this gives me that gorgeous Kate Middleton glow. I use Clarins Liquid Bronze on my face and this on my body. Absolute perfection! Clarins please do not stop making this product!!! It is perfect for those of us who want a sun kissed glow!

          I used this product after spending 10 days on vacation in Florida. Along with the after sun lotion, it has helped prolong my tan. I've never looked better before the summer season. Thanks, Clarins

          Comments about Clarins Self Tanning Instant Gel:

          Subtle look of sun? None! This product absolutely doesn't do anything except moisturize. The color is barely any. Based on reviews, I may have purchased a defective batch because there's no difference really. Usually I use St Tropez which is great and lasts but since they didn't have it at sephora, I purchased this and big mistake.

              Comments about Clarins Self Tanning Instant Gel:

              The reason I gave only 4 stars because the website lists all this fantastic plant extracts that this product has. Namely Aloe Vera, Silver Birch and Shea. Unfortunaltely Clarins doesn't list ALL the ingredients on the website, so you don't know it until you receive the product and you read the full list of ingredients on the product's box. This gel only has one plant ingredient in it: Larrea Divaricata. The other ingredients are just the usual chemicals (butylene glycol, glycerin etc.). Not harmful, but still where are the other plant extracts? Next time I will probably order the Delicious Self Tanning Cream. I received a free sample from that and it had really fantastic plant extracts and was hydrating on the skin too. This gel is just a tanning gel, but still better than any other company's product out there! If you don't seek a moisturization effect, this can be perfect. Also you just need a small amount or it can get sticky! But if you apply small amounts it absorbs nicely and fast.

                      I'm over 50, and my skin looks radiant from my self tanning gel. I used Clarins exfoliate her before myself tanning gel which I mix with Clarins moisturizer. My skin is radiant! Love the Clarins self tanner without the sun damage.

                          I love this gel, it gives a natural tan look. I put a dab of moisturizer in it, mix it up in my palm, and then apply. I use moisturizer with sunscreen on my face and shoulders. Then I give my skin a few minutes to dry before putting on clothes. Always wash hands, and fingernails especially, with soap and water, right away.

                          Comments about Clarins Self Tanning Instant Gel:

                          I usually do not use self-tanner because they all smell awful and give a streaky, orange color. Not so with this fabulous product. I've been using it most of the summer and get many compliments on my beautiful skin tone. The color is normal, the coverage is flawless, even around tricky areas like ankles and feet where you can start to get streaks or blending problems. I would give it five stars if it didn't have the fake tanner smell, but that may just be unavoidable with these self-tanning products. I love that I can wear SPF 50 when I'm in the sun but still have a golden glow in the summertime. Worth every penny I spent.
