I've just bought the Clarins Liquid Bronze Self Tanning. It's for face and décolleté. It says, apply using a cotton pad, over moisturiser. I used as directed.....no change. Tried it with fingers over my serum. Next morning.... Nothing. Have now applied 5 times and have the faintest tan, ever. So, NOT impressed for the price.
I've had the Delicious one, in a tub. I applied very lightly and had a decent colour....not orange. Are you using too much? However, the smell of it was really awful. That full on biscuit smell you got with all self tan in the early days.
For the price, I will not be buying Clarins again.
I just whack it on with my fingers. No moisturiser underneath, just a lick on my eyebrows and hairline. I get a great colour with it, as my real skin is so pale. I've heard others say it does nowt so it depends on your skin.
Really dislike all these tanning brands - st tropez the only one that goes a lovely light brown on my pale skin. Just goes to show that different ingredients must work differently on different skin - maybe your own undertone influences the colour as well?
