      Comments about Clarins Delicious Self Tanning Cream:

      This is a nice product. I like that they provide a little scoop-it makes it easier. However, I didn't see a whole lot of results with this product, I was a little let down. Otherwise, it went on smooth-had a great texture, and smelled great.

            I only used it on my arms. Not sure about using it on my face. Definitely to expensive to use on rest of my body because it is so expensive. There is no price break on this or coupons, etc.

              I love the Clarins Delicious Self Tanning Cream! It has color so you can see where you have applied it, which makes for even coverage & it lasts for 5-7 days. I exfoliate before applying at bedtime, then I wear long pjs so I don't get it on the sheets. Wake up in the morning & wash it off. The only thing I don't care for is the smell but I believe they all smell at least the ones I have used.

                  I have used this self tanner for years. Doesn't make my fair skin orange! It gives me a natural looking tan, which I can layer. I use it with their exfoliating body scrub, and it goes on smooth & streak-free. Some tips: exfoliate first. I put a little lotion on the areas that are naturally rougher & would absorb more color (elbows, knuckles, ankles, etc). Then I apply & it goes on even & beautifully! I wash my palms & then take a velour puff, or you can use a mitt, to blend it even more & buff it in. I have done this with all self tanners for years, and it gives me the best application. The clarins self tanners just all give the most real looking color results!

                  I used to use the Self Tanning Instant Gel but I bought this one this time. Actually, this product was much better than the other for me. You can have super natural tan and smells good as well. Plus, I felt like applying body lotion! Gives me a lot of moisture and my skin won't get dried at all. I will stay with this product!

                  Comments about Clarins Delicious Self Tanning Cream:

                  It's the first time I used a self tanner and this product made it very easy ! Thanks to its dark colour it was very easy to apply. I'm very fair and after one application I get a healthy glow ! However, I have to reapply it after a few hours to really get the "sun kissed" result I want. The good thing is that at the end it looks natural. I got a lot of compliments about my tan from my friends and none of them could imagine I was using self tan ! The only thing I don't like is the smell... It's too heavy and lasts for too long. The texture is a bit sticky but eventually I got used to it.

                  TERRIBLE STICKY STUFF

                  By RoseAnne

                  from Cleveland, OH, USA

                  Comments about Clarins Delicious Self Tanning Cream:

                  I have used Clarins for over 20 years and usually I am very satisfied with their products, not with this one. I put it on dry, clean, exfoliated skin and it was very sticky. So much so that my legs stuck together, and if I put my hand on my leg it pulled away the skin about an inch. I put up with it for 8 hours and then decided to wash with soap and water. A great deal of brown product came off on the wash cloth. I did get a warm even glow on my legs and they were very soft, but I am sending this back, The instructions were very minimal and said that I could get dressed in a few minutes, Wrong! The product would have gotten all over my clothes. This product needs to.get reformulated.

                    is this product tested on animals?

                      A:

                      Here is Clarins' official statement on animal testing:

                      "CLARINS was one of the first cosmetic companies to stop using ingredients of animal origin in its products. CLARINS commitment to the protection of animals is also the reason why testing on animals stopped several years ago.

                      Consumer's health and safety is of paramount importance for Clarins and thus we are committed to complying with all applicable regulations in every country in which our products are sold to make sure that we deliver the safest and most appreciated products possible. To do so, we do not conduct animal testing on our finished products or ingredients except in exceptional cases, when required locally by law.

                      Clarins fully supports the development and global acceptance of non-animal testing alternatives. Product safety control is carried out on cell culture in accordance with substitute in vitro methods that are internationally acknowledged and approved by experts.

                      Respect for animals remains one of our priority selection criteria when choosing raw materials. Once selected, such materials do not require further testing on animals and remain compliant with standards set down by law.

                      However, all materials used by the cosmetics industry can also be used by the pharmaceutical and food industries. These raw materials must therefore also satisfy legal and safety requirements as set down by the European Commission on the basis of tests carried out on animals."

                      Yes, apply evenly over the face and body. Avoid the eyebrows and hairline. Wash hands thoroughly after application. For best results, ensure that you've first exfoliated your skin to eliminate any flaky dryness.

                  • Q:

                    Which product gives a more intense tan - the Delicious Self Tanning Cream or the Clarins Instant Self Tanning Gel?

                      A:

                      Both the Delicious Self Tanning Cream and Instant Self Tanning Gel give a rich caramel color. However, both products are "build-a-tan" by frequency of reapplication. The difference is texture preference. The gel is quick drying, and cream gives rich moisture to the skin. We hope this helps!

                    How long does this tan last, and what - if not this - is the longest lasting self-tanner available at Ulta?
                    Asked on 7/20/2015 by BleachBlondeBlue from MA

                      A:

                      Clarins Delicious Self Tanning Cream gives the skin a golden, glowing tan without the sun, and each application will typically last 2 to 3 days. For best results, apply on clean, freshly exfoliated skin. You can apply up to three consecutive applications to provide the desired color. Once you achieve the shade you desire, the maintenance is only one application every 2 to 3 days.

                      Tips for a perfect sunless tan:

                      1. Use a non-deodorant soap such as a body cleansing gel. Deodorant soaps create a barrier on the surface of the skin that inhibits the self tan process.
                      2. Exfoliate the body on dry skin. Pay extra attention to elbows,knees, ankles and toes.
                      3. After you shower make sure you thoroughly dry your skin.
                      4. After applying the self tanner on your body make sure you wash the palms of your hands and reapply self tanner on top of hands with a cotton pad.

                      We hope these tips help! :-)
