Most Helpful Critical Review Ok tanner
I bought this tanner because I've always heard such great things about Clarin's self tanners. The positive thing is this doesn't make me look orange and there was no streaking, easy as body lotion to apply.
The bad thing is that it smelled good going on but stunk later in the day but if you wash it off right away you wont develop the tan. The other thing I didnt like was no matter how long I waited to get dressed after applying the lotion it stained my bra and white waist bands.
I am now trying the Clarins gel and radiance booster now hoping to avoid the smell and staining.

I love how easily this goes on, color grows gradually.
This is The Stuff!
PennsMommie from Columbus, OH
I used to work for Clarins so I *am* biased - I will begin with that caveat. However, this self-tanning milky lotion (it used to be called tanning milk) still rocks the house! I am an African American woman, and I would describe my natural color as the color of coffee with a dollop of cream. When I use this, it simply and gently enhances and improves my natural brown... I LOVE IT!! Do make sure to wash your hands afterwards, though... :|
Best self tanner ever for face
Esha Baba from Indiana
I have tried dozens of self tanners over 20 years, and this is by far the BEST ONE EVER, in every way!
Still the best product out there!
mg123 from New Jersey
I see that some reviewers were not happy with this product and thought it had changed. While that may be the case ( I have only been using it the past 3 summers so maybe I am using the newer formulation) for me, it's still the best self tanner out there. The color is the most natural from many of the products and the scent is the least irritating to my sensitive (allergy ridden) nose. Before, I bought a new bottle this summer I even tried some of the other highly rated products natural, vegan and top beauty lines on the market. Not only do they have a stronger scent whether it be coconut or floral but the color is woah. Orange and dark. Not to mention you can't remove it or tone it down no matter how much you exfoliate . I am going to buy my second bottle of this tanner today.

It gives a beautiful light gold color, I'm really white so it gives a nice bronce color. I like the coconut smell
Best Self-Tanning Lotion for Legs/Arms
Joan R from Cumming, GA
I have purchased Clarins Self Tanning Milky Lotion for about 4 years!! I love it because I have very sensitive skin. I used to tan well but with age now I mostly burn and freckle. I exfoliate my skin in the shower and then put this lotion on my legs, back to bra-line, shoulders, decolletage and arms. I have an even tanning plus it makes my legs look much better by hiding veins too! Very happy with this product!! BTW, I buy the lotion instead of the gel because I have dry skin. Too afraid it will not tan evenly with the gel.
This isn't the formula I loved anymore
Linda21 from Burlington Vermont
I bought this quite some years ago using it sparingly as I don't like to overuse nice but expensive products and I figured I could purchase more when I was ready. To my dismay I have discovered it is gone!!! Why do they do this?? I received a sample of the new version and it doesn't compare. The old formula was very hydrating without being greasy. And the smell was wonderful. I don't get why (new) formulas aren't ever better but worse it seems and I'm not alone in my thoughts. I don't think these companies read our reviews. I think I would possibly recommend to someone but still sad the old one seems to be gone. That one I would have definitely recommended. Is there a better way to communicate our dislike to Clarins? Please let us know.
SMELLS LIKE HEAVEN
VALERIE58 from GA
I USE THIS TANNER ALL THE TIME . MOST TANNER STINKS AND THIS TANNER IS THE BEST I HAVE EVER USED.I LOVE ALL THE TANNERS AND SO DOES NY DAUGHTER.
Please bring back the original
JordansCT from Connecticut
I used the original Self Tanning Milk for years. It was the best on the market. This one is watery, smelly, and orange. PLEASE bring back the original formula!!!
Blotchy, barely-there look
KCDFW from Dallas, TX
The smell of this isn't overwhelming and doesn't leave a strong sunless tanner odor. Applies easily. I'm very experienced with self tanners, and even I got a really uneven tan from this. Not sure why because I was really careful with the application. But it didn't matter too much because the tan wasn't dark enough to see. The small amount of color that I did get was a little too orange for me. The search for the perfect sunless tanner continues...
Please bring back the ORIGINAL
HildeAimeClarins from San Diego, CA
I've been using the original self-tanning milky lotion for years and have not been disappointed. Goes on exceptionally well and stays for days with a very natural look. The original needs to be brought back. There is no reason to change a product that has been a staple with devotees.
Love the new tanning lotion
nzbraughton from Los Gatos, Caiifornia
I have been wearing Clarins self tanning lotion for years and loved it. I wasn'tvthrilled About the smell and it took quite a bit of time to dry. I was. Dry worried about the new lotion due to the reviews. However, the new stuff is great. There is a smell, but it is not unpleasant like the other one and it drives faster. It also lasts longer. So, I am very happy with the new product.
Please bring back the tanning milk old formula
Beth 95 from Indiana
I have used Clarins tanning milk for several years. It was the best on the market. The coverage would last nearly a week or more. The self tanning milky -lotion is terrible. It is runny with very minimal coverage that does not last but only a few hours. It is not worth the price. I would not recommend it. Please bring the other formula back!!!
Bako Gramma from Bakersfield CA
I love the natural looking tan this gives me and it does not smell like bad all the other self-tanners. I wish that it also included a SPF sunscreen, then it would be perfect!
Delray Beauty from Delray Beach
Clarins used to have a self-tanning milk that was a thick white cream. It had a beautiful color before self-tanners were perfected. This is awful. Mad I blew my 20% off prestige brand coupon on this.
Where did the best self tanner ever go?
AppleMary from Minnesota, USA
I have used Clarins self tanner faithfully for over 20 years- ever since my sister reviewed it favorably for Vogue. I' ve had countless people compliment me on my "natural tan" and have referred them to Clarins. So, I simply can't believe the product is gone...and replaced by such a literally pale substitute. Who is minding the store?
Terrible replacement for old formula
Pdallas from Fallas
I have used Clarins tanning milk for years and loved it. Nice tan would last for days. Hardly any color with this and spotty in 1 day. Please bring back old formula.
Love love love
DanielleT from Carol Stream, IL, USA
I have used the gel for over 5 years and figured I would try this one out. It's absolutely amazing it's smells like heaven lightly scented doesn't smell like self tanner at all even my husband ask me what I was wearing and said it smelled so good! It's a light weight lotion that absorb super fast and didn't feel greasy at all! The best part is the color is perfect natural brown color!
Doesn't work - the gel is better
Rach from Boston
I have used the Clarins self-tanning gel for years and love it. The woman at the store convinced me to try the lotion because it smells so much better and dries quickly. The problem is, it doesn't work. The color was really light and looked blotchy. Don't switch from the gel!
Old one better. This one okay.
Rozo from Brenham, TX 77833, USA
I am like the other reviewers. I have used Clarins for years . I loved the old formula, but this one is okay. I am not able to make it last very long. Smells good. Would prefer old formula with new scent.
Do not buy!
KelKel from Paducah, KY
Did not work at all, I use sunless tanners all the time. Wanted to try some new products. This came as a white cream, if you use tanners very much most all are tented some what, this was my first worry. The I put it on, of course it being white expected it was going to take time to develop.....well that never happened! Returning product ASAP!
What a waste of $$
sarahk from Sea Ranch, CA
So disappointed. I've been a loyal user of Clarins self-tanners, and recommended it to so many friends. Just returned from 2 separate long trips where I used it in Florida, St. Barth and Hawaii-- wasted time and money using 4 tubes over 10 weeks and wondered what was wrong-- barely any color at all, and lasted only 1-2 days! The scent was fine for me, but this product barely provided any color! Guess I'm going to lose my $20 loyalty reward that is expiring since I don't want to buy anymore of this!
Hate the new formula
MLMSanDiego from Undisclosed
I used the old formula for YEARS!!! And absolutely loved it. This new formula is a disaster...horrible color, nasty smell and greasy feel. It is like an old 1980's self tanner...the worst!!! I'm so bummed that Clarins discontinued the original because it was the best.
Bring back old formula, PLEASE
Sadindallas from Undisclosed
No comparison between this and old self tanning milk. It was fabulous. Color does not come close to old version. It lasts a couple of days, if that, compared to close to a week. Please bring it back ASAP.
