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.

Good product but not my favorite

Comments about Clarins Self Tanning Instant Gel:

I've used all brands and types of self tanner, so after seeing such good reviews on Clarins gel, I thought I'd give it a try too. It's expensive, if you're a budget shopper. I liked that it was lightweight and seemed to dry fairly quickly. I always put self tanner on at night, after I've showered, exfoliated and moisturized. When I woke up the next morning, the color was very natural looking. No streaks (thank goodness). It didn't bleed onto my clothes or sheets. It has the standard self tanning odor. I don't like that it doesn't have a color guard because I prefer to know that I'm covering myself entirely and not guessing. This was a deal breaker for me. I'll continue to use it because, again, it was costly. But, once I finish the tube, I will not repurchase. St. Tropez is still my favorite, because of the nice scent and color guard. But, Clarins was okay.

The perfect sun alternative

By Keiko21

from Chicago, IL, USA

Comments about Clarins Self Tanning Instant Gel:

The Self Tanning Instant Gel is a great way to achieve a healthy glow and warmth to your skin without the harmful use of the sun. Easy application and dries quickly, It does have a bit of a tack when first applied, so let it dry before dressing. This is a nice addition to your beauty regime!

By LarryM

Comments about Clarins Self Tanning Instant Gel:

This is a breeze to use. No bad smell, it dries in minutes and it doesn't leave dark spots. It's not a dark tan, it just looks like you've had some sun. Perfect for my needs.

    Comments about Clarins Self Tanning Instant Gel:

    This is the best self tanner ever...after yrs and yrs of trying others that make you orange, this does it...you can even mix it w/your lotion and still get color that lasts and doesn't look fake. I think it improves my skins texture.

    Best Self-Tanner I've Ever Used!

    By Gingy

    from Meridian, MS

    Comments about Clarins Self Tanning Instant Gel:

    Not only a great self-tanner but also moisturizes your skin. Tanning is very even-toned and natural looking; not "orangey" as other self-tanners can be.

        Great for fair skin!

        By Sharpie

        from Oregon, USA

        Comments about Clarins Self Tanning Instant Gel:

        I absolutely love this product! It is wonderful for my fair skin! It doesn't turn my skin orange like other self-tanning products that I have tried. It makes my skin such a nice tan color! Yay! Also, I love the fact that it doesn't have a tint to it. I can put it on before bed and the next morning wake up tan without having to wash my sheets. I am definitely recommending this product to my fair skin friends who want to be tan without sitting in the sun. AMAZING!
