    Comments about Clinique Self Sun Body Tinted Lotion:

    I bought this because I love self tanning and wanted a noncomedogenic option for chest, shoulders, neck, and face. While it does not clog pores (earning it the one star), this has the most awful smell and color. It smells strongly of pennies that one might find on the street, and that smell doesn't fade. As if the smell isn't bad enough, the color is also of a penny. You put this on and don't look bronzed and natural, you look coppery orange. I can only imagine that this is Trump's exact shade. Genuinely the worst self tan I have ever encountered, I'm amazed this has any positive reviews.

    Streak-free, Natural Looking & Easy - I'm in Love!

    By lindley81

    from Miles City, MT

    Comments about Clinique Self Sun Body Tinted Lotion:

    I am glad I ignored all the negative reviews! I have used at least a dozen other self tanners over the years, and this is my favorite. I apply it (after moisturizing elbows, knees, ankles & feet to prevent extra build up) with disposable latex gloves on my hands for easy clean up. After about 20 minutes it dries and I wear it overnight to bed. Yes it has that self tanner smell, but it is dramatically less than all the other products (and actually disappears once washed off). I have light/medium toned skin, and use the medium/dark color. This gives me a totally streak-free, naturally glowing tan for a week (which gradually fades without weird patchy or streaky colors). Compared to other quality products, I find this to be the least expensive, easiest to use and most natural looking product for my skin. Everyone is different and has different needs/preferences/sensitivities, so know that this is the *one* for me and might be the right one for you...

    Smells like formaldehyde

    By Sassy1

    from Indiana

    Comments about Clinique Self Sun Body Tinted Lotion:

    Seriously who let this scent pass inspection? Hands down the worst scent ever. This also lacks a strong color guide. That makes for some unexpected areas in the morning. It's a shame that these flaws are major , because the color is beautiful. I will not be purchasing this ever again.

      Graduation night & my legs were looking very pale after a long winter. Needed something that would create a natural tan that wouldn't look orange. This product was recommended to me by an employee at Ulta & I absolutely LOVE IT. I'm hispanic & this color worked great

      Comments about Clinique Self Sun Body Tinted Lotion:

      This is probably the worst smelling "tinted lotion" I've ever had to endure. Omg, it seriously makes me sick to my stomach. It smells like dirty pennies and chemicals. It dries very quickly so its difficult to get an even, unstreaky tan. If you apply it with some regular lotion, you might be able to get away with it, assuming you can even stand the smell in the first place. Ugh.

      Comments about Clinique Self Sun Body Tinted Lotion:

      I was really shocked to read all these positive reviews, maybe I purchased a "bad batch" but the smell of mine is TERRIBLE. I have used everything from jergens to salon sprays and never have had an issue with smell. It has a very overpowering metallic smell and does not fade throughout the day or even overnight.

      I also purchased medium/deep and while I have a natural medium skin tone I did not notice a difference other than the immediate bronzer. I love Clinique and I understand their commitment to fragrance free, but maybe this is best for fairer or ultra sensitive skin.

      I did give it two stars because I never felt orange or streaky with the bronzer, just stinky. I liked the texture and slight shimmer, but unfortunately I was looking for something to use daily after my shower and this smell is just too bad for that purpose.

      Comments about Clinique Self Sun Body Tinted Lotion:

      Goes on evenly (I used a mitt) and gives a nice golden tan. It fades sooner than I had expected but is still a good product of this kind. I has no scent, unlike a lot of self tan products. It also is moisturizing.

              Hi. Clinique Self Sun Body Tinted Lotion does not contain an SPF. Try Clinique Broad Spectrum Sunscreen Virtu-Oil Body Mist SPF 30 for high-level sun protection. Thanks for your question and have a great week!
