Most Helpful Positive Review Amazing full body tan for whiteys
I have no idea why they just want you to use this on your face. I used it on my entire body and got a great light tan. I say "light" tan because I am very fair - blonde hair, blue eyes, always burn outdoors. I simply added 3 drops to a full pump of cetaphil body lotion and covered my body in sections using about 21 drops total. Amazing streak free tan. I have never used a fake tan product successfully before- I get streaks even from the weak Jergens junk. This product is a game changer! Use it on your whole body - you will not regret it!
Most Helpful Critical Review pros and cons
I love Clarins for bronzers/self-tanners. I usually use their tanning milk, but that does leave a scent that stays for the day. This, I will say, does not, since it is mixed in with your moisturizer -- also a plus, one less step. The cons I have found are that this -- more than their other products or those from other brands I have tried -- very quickly migrates to the hairline, so you end up with a weird ring. Either a pro or con, it does wash off quicker than other self-tanners, so this is easy enough to get rid of with a bit of exfoliation. But overall, I will stick to their tanning milk and just apply at night or in small doses in the am so the scent is not overwhelming.

I really like the ability to add the sunless tanner to my daily moisturizer. It allows me to use the right moisturizer for my skin along with gradual tanning. The only thing I will say is that I needed to use more than expected initially to get the shading I desired. Otherwise the tanning is subtle and natural looking.

I've developed allergies that make me unable to use most tanners. I was super excited to find one on my 'yes' list. Unfortunately, I used it several days in a row with no results.
ValN from NJ
This stuff is amazing; I get so many compliments when I use it, saying my skin looks great, I have a glow, I look tan, etc. It's perfect for when you don't want to wear foundation or powder - it's basically a DIY tinted moisturizer. I'm in love with it!
Clarin golden glow booster

I'm new to this line of self tanners. So my only con is wash your hands after you apply. I used my face lotion with this product to apply and it gave me a healthy glow. So far I love it!🌸
Minimal, if any, result
Abby from Pittsburgh PA
I was looking forward to trying a new product since Tan Towels for face have not been available from Ulta. This seemed like a great product, and I liked the idea of just adding drops to moisturizer. It has little scent, which is nice, however, I have fair skin, and have seen no result after using for a week.
Provides a natural glow!
Sarah MSMMBI from undisclosed
I am always nervous to use self-tanner. However, this was so easy. I just added two drops to my nighttime moisturizer every night and everyone kept asking if I got some sun. Just a faint, natural looking glow.
Taramisu from Kansas City MO
I bought this a few months ago and had forgotten about it and saw a IG account mention it and how they loved it so I started using a couple of drops in my moisturizer and I had people commenting in just 2-3 days that I had a glow and a tan. Def recommend!
Natural looking self tanner
MIA 744 from Los Angeles , CA
I saw this product on Instagram stories, and decided to try it out. It's a very natural looking self tan glow that is customizable. All you need is 3-4 drops everyday to achieve more color. I apply Double Serum first in the morning, then I mix the self tanner drops in my moisturizer and apply on face and down neck. Nice glow. No orange streaks or patches. I will purchase again.

I've bought 3 bottles and don't plan to stop! Love the color it gives me and I don't breakout!
Love the natural color

I use this every few days, year round to give my face a healthy look. Super easy to use. Since it's blended with moisturizer you don't have to worry about streaking, etc. Totally natural look. Love this product!!!
Golden Perks for Sensitive Skin
shineykate from Tampa, FL
I love the way this works with my moisturizer! It leaves behind a healthy glow and I only smell the scent of my moisturizer. This product was approved by ACDS Camp skin allergy app for my specific allergies and I couldn't be happier!
Gives my face a lovely glow.
Carolek from Jersey Shore
I use 2 drops every morning mixed with my moisturizer.
Lucy22 from CT
I couldn't wait to try this product! Unfortunately, I don't see any difference. I wish I did! I like other Clarins products, this one just missed the mark.
Love, natural glow!
AlleyKat from Oakland, CA
I love this product! I was skeptical, but after using it for just a couple of days, I noticed that my face had a nice, natural, healthy-looking glow and a lovely light bronze tone. Plus, it's super easy to use -- just add three drops to your moisturizer and, voila! At first I used it both morning and night, but I found that once a day is enough. Love it!
Freezedrylady from undisclosed
I have been using this for a few years now. One bottle lasts me a year. I don't use it every day but it provides a nice tanned look to my skin without the sun! Using daily enhances the effect so this is why i skip some days. Ive never noticed a "line" on my neck or anything. It blends well.
Broke me out
Lyss from Southfield mi
Used this stuff for a week and I had little bumps all over my face broke out on my forehead especially. Also I did notice a hint of orange by my eyebrows and nose area.
Morgg25 from Arkansas
I can't tell you how much I love this stuff. At first I wasn't impressed & almost returned it bc it just didn't give me enough tan on my face. But I kept trying it out & you absolutely have to do a few applications to build it up, but once it's to your desired darkness, it's so nice! It's radiant, & not orange. A huge plus for me also is that it doesn't break me out, which I was very scared of. I love this stuff!

I love how natural this looks. I'm very fair, and I like to stay protected from the sun. I love how this makes me look like I've spent a lot of time in the sun! It goes a long way, too. I love it
Golden Glow Booster for Face
KMFB from Georgia
I banned the sun after my husband was diagnosed with Melanoma, which eventually spread to his brain and took his life at the young age of 35. Needless to say I am very pale and it was hard to find a fool proof self tanner until my sister-in-law introduced me to Clarins' Golden Glow Booster for Face! Now I don't look "sick" because this product gives me that natural glow and hands down, I will use this til the day I die! I have combination skin, and I use this product (4 drops) with Clarins' Matifying Hydrating Cream and I couldn't be more in love with the results! Then I just pop on some mascara and I'm done! I highly recommend this product, a little goes a long way so don't think twice about any concerns on price, as one bottle will seem to last you almost forever!
Love this product!
Carmita from New York, NY
I have been using this product since it was first released.
Bribri from St. Louis
This is great. I will definitely repurchase again. Great natural looking color. Has been great during covid time, where i am not wearing makeup to work with my mask on. This gives me a nice complexion without the makeup. Takes a couple applications to develop to where i like it but builds beautifully.
IT MADE A RASH ON MY FACE, IT MIGHT BE OKAY FOR SOME PEOPLE
MELBELL from ROCHESTER,MN
IT FELT NICE ON MY FACE, BUT IT GAVE ME A RASH
Great color, works fast
Lex from Portland
You don't have to wait long for results, and a little bit goes a long way. I use a good amount of it and one bottle will last me all summer easily. It looks really natural without makeup as long as you're careful to apply it everywhere.
dominicc192 from ct
i usually go in the tanning bed and am used to being very tan, and since corona i haven't been in the tanning bed so i decided to use this on my face so i can have some color, and it gives my skin a very NATURAL looking glow, definitely does not look orange and no one would be able to tell it's self tanner not from laying in the sun...definitely recommend using 6 drops instead of the recommended 3 drops for better/faster more dramatic results. and no gross smell
