Self Tanning Instant Gel

Item #: 2200681

Ask a Question
A self-tanning gel to bring out healthy color in the skin. Clarins Self Tanning Instant Gel is a lightweight and non-oily gel that promotes a natural, golden tan for face and body without sun exposure. It's instantly absorbed, so there's no need to wait before dressing, with results in just two hours. Ideal for those who wish to maintain a year-round tanned appearance.
For a more radiant and even result, exfoliate skin the night before. Apply a small amount of self tanner with quick, light sweeping motions (avoiding the eyebrows and hairline). Gently wipe elbows, knees and heels with a tissue, as these areas can turn a darker color. Wash hands and nails thoroughly after application. Wait a few minutes before dressing.

    Great stuff

    Comments about Clarins Self Tanning Instant Gel:

    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.

    Best self tanner, worth the price

    By CMac

    from Undisclosed

    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.

          NOT BAD

          By IinSC

          from SC

          Verified Buyer

          Comments about Clarins Self Tanning Instant Gel:

          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.

              Though it takes about 6-8 hours for the tan to develop, it's the most natural tan I've received from a bottle.

              I notice a bit of "self tanner" odor, but it works well.

              Cons

              • Smelly

              Best Uses

                Comments about Clarins Self Tanning Instant Gel:

                I wouldn't buy this product again. It left me sticky and didn't go away. Even wiping it after 2 hours didn't do anything. I am new to using self tanner but if there suppose to exfoliate before kinda means to me that you shower before applying but now what do I do to not be sticky. Don't let the sales girl talk you into this
