Review: Clarins Self Tanning Instant Gel

Hello everyone!

Since summer is officially under way now many of you may be starting to use fake tan again in preparation for the warmer weather and sunnier days. There are so many products on the market now for fake tanning it can be a bit overwhelming deciding on good one to try. So today I thought I would help you out by reviewing my favourite self tanning product, the Clarins Self Tanning Instant Gel.

Firstly I would like to say the name is a bit misleading since it isn't instant. The product itself is clear, with no guide colour at all, and it leaves no colour on the skin when you first apply it. I think it is called an Instant Gel because the colour develops very quickly and dries pretty fast, so you aren't left with that sticky, tacky feeling on the skin. This means you can get dressed quickly after applying it without the worry of it smudging all over your clothing (or bedding if you apply it at night).

Other than the potentially misleading name the only other negative thing is the smell of it. Personally I can deal with it since I know that the results will be worth it, however others around you may not have the same thoughts although I haven't found a fake tan that doesn't have a bad smell, so I guess it is part of the experience!

The colour however is amazing.On my very pale complexion it has never turned out orange and if I apply it with latex gloves (my fake tan secret weapon) there are no streaks and it just leaves my skin looking nicely bronzed. You can also choose the intensity of the colour depending on how often you apply it, so in that way it is like a gradual tanning product. This is another bonus for me because I don't want it to look too intense so applying it every three to four days keeps it looking dark enough but not too over the top.

Have you tried this product before?
