Clarins Radiance-Plus Golden Glow Booster Self Tan

Clarins Radiance-Plus Golden Glow Booster is a new made-to-measure self-tan that you can mix with your favorite moisturizer to obtain the perfect tan. 1, 2 or 3 drops? You decide! Are you afraid to use any new product on your skin because it break out easily? Or your skin has special needs and you simply can't change your skincare routine? No problem, just mix it with the cream you are currently using! This self tanner will give you the opportunity to get a beautiful and natural tan without changing your skin care regimen. Isn't it awesome?

The application method is super easy : You simply mix 2-3 drops with your favorite moisturizer in the palm of your hand and apply it on your face, neck and cleavage. Don't forget to wash your hands thorougly immediately after. For best results, you should always exfoliate your skin before applying  self tanner. 

You can mix it with almost anything, but I found that it was easier to apply on the skin when I mix it with a cream-gel such as Clarins HydraQuench Cream-Gel for normal to combination skin. Of course, it depends of your skin type, but you don't want something that will dry too fast. Creams, lotions, water based serums works fine too, but I wouldn't mix it with an oil because it won't mix properly and your tan might be streaky. 

The result after one application (3 drops) :

I usually repeat the procedure on the next day to intensify my tan but I wanted to show you how it looks after one application. It's a beautiful golden tan, not orangey at all and not streaky either. It does smell a little bit, but much less than my others self tanners. Honestly, I can hardly smell it and the scent just wash off anyway. 

On me it last 3 days before I need to reapply it, which is great considering the fact that I wash my face twice a day with salicylic acid based cleansers (it exfoliate the skin, so the tan fade faster).

I think this is a pretty cool product, I love that I can mix it with my favorite moisturizer!

The Clarins Radiance-Plus Golden Glow Booster Self Tan retail for $30 CDN for 15ml.
