  • I paid $26 for this?! - Clarins Self Tanning Instant Gel!

    May 6, 2003 by bops_mom is a Lead on Epinions in Wellness & Beauty
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: absorbs quickly; looks natural
    Cons: price; needs many applications to look tan; tan doesn't last

    Summary: This goes into my product reviews of shame pile. You know, those products that are really pricey, that didn't work, that never should have bought in the first place. I don't lay out in the sun (anymore) and I don't do the tanning bed thing ... read more

  • just bought it and love it, not the price though :[

    Pros: NO orange
    no streaks
    even tan
    feels like I just got out of the sun
    Cons: makes me scared to take a shower and lose the tan because it's so expensive.

    Summary: I just bought this self tanner and applied it the same day. I've tried the cheap ones that you get for $6-10 dollars. The neutrogena sublime glow was the closest to the deep tan color I needed, but it wasn't strong enough (and I have medium/olive ... read more

  • Great self-tanning product

    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: Quickly absorbed; natural color
    Cons: None

    Summary: I had never used a self-tanning product before this one. I have fair skin and wanted to apply a self-tanner to my legs (which are super white). I was very impressed. The gel is quickly absorbed which means that you can shower (and exfoliate), apply, ... read more

  • Great natural tan, silky smooth skin

    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Natural looking tan; silky; fades naturally
    Cons: Slight smell; some may want more color

    Summary: I bought this product based on Clarins reputation, and previous, positive experiences with their products. After my purchase, I read some scathing reviews on epinions, and proceeded to "tan" with some trepidation. I followed all instructions ... read more

    Pros: Easy application,
    Cons: Pricey, No application indicator,

    Summary: I'd read in one of my beauty magazines that Clarins was the top pick among self tanners. I headed over to Lord and Taylor and looked around. Stupid me, I didn't bother testing anything out on my wrists. I was too excited at finally being able to get a ... read more

  • Doesn't rub off like makeup, better than spray

    Pros: Tanning without wrinkles
    Cons: Takes a few days to look great

    Summary: I have tried a sample of this recently with smashing results. I am a person who likes to be somewhat tan year-round as I look sick when I am pale. I have tried bronzing powder and liquid makeups that "tan" you however they come off on your white ... read more

    Pros: Easy to use, washes off hands easily, works!
    Cons: Smells strange, expensive, can streak, no sun protection

    Summary: I bought Clarins Self Tanning Gel for AUD 34 (approx. USD 17) at a local department store after hearing good things about the Clarins fake tan range. I have unbelievably pale skin and my family is prone to developing melanomas so I'm always very careful ... read more

    Pros: Very easy to use and it's not messy
    Cons: The color is very light - even on fair skin

    Summary: I have tried every self tanning lotion on the market and this one was by far the best in every category except one. It smelled nice, was easy to use, did not streak and was not messy to deal with. However, the color is so light that I used almost the ... read more

  • Where's the Color?

    Pros: the smell
    Cons: color is too light

    Summary: As I wrote in one of my other reviews, I have tried just about every self-tanner there is. Compared to other self tanners, Clarins smells the best, tans the least, and costs the most. My pet peeve with self-tanners is the smell of your skin ... read more

  • For that price I should at least get tanned!

    Pros: You'll turn yellow
    Cons: And... you have to pay for it!

    Pros: Didn't streak as much
    Cons: Smells bad
    Turns you orange

    Summary: I originally purchased this expensive product based on good reviews about smell, streaking and non-orange effect.  Unfortunatley my experience didn't measure up.  I have very white skin.  It did streak but less than other products.  ... read more

    Pros: it does have a good browny hue to it
    Cons: doesn't dry fast enough, not enough color

    Summary: I usually used the Clarins spray, it was amazing, but it is now discontintued. (I hate it when they do that,.) So, got the 'instant' gel instead. It takes a good 2 hours to dry, and the color is non-existant. I'm on my 3rd coat (3 days) now, and its ... read more
