FREE deluxe sample One-Step Gentle Exfoliating Cleanser w/ any Clarins purchase
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.

    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

        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.

        Applied product as directed. Next morning I had big brown spots all over me. Scrubbed and scrubbed to get them off but got very few removed. Love Claris products but this was a big no

        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!

        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.
