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.

    This is much better than some lower priced products that required adding lotion to for even application. Lasts longer, goes on even, no orange knees or heels, natural looking. Worth the money.

        Comments about Clarins Self Tanning Instant Gel:

        30 Years ago I discovered Clarins self tanner, whilst still tanning on the beach every weekend. I realized this magical cream was the answer to saving my skin, the time, and looked every bit as natural as what the sun gave me. NO stinky smell, no orange, olive, or greyed color like other self tanner can leave you with. Just a fresh sun kissed look, and delish smell. I used it on my face, no break outs, no greasy leave behind. It was, and to this day IS my all time very favorite self tanner. AND YES, I am an expert. have tried all of them. THIS IS THE VERY BEST OUT THERE. The price is excellent too.

                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

                from New York, NY, USA

                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.
