I am a self-tanner junkie. I love any kind of tanning product, but started dreading the application process for "true" self tanners. I decided to tone down my beauty routine, and that meant less time sitting in the bathroom with rubber gloves, waiting for lotion to dry. I picked up a bottle of the Clarins Soin Multi-Eclat Auto-Bronzant after reading about it in a magazine. This product is well worth the money. It lasts for ages, smells decent, comes in a great pump applicator bottle, and doesn't stain your hands. It's also a bronzing lotion, which means that it will tan your skin gradually (think 4-5 days to see true color). I've alternated days with regular face moisturizer, and this was fine.
Now for the big question - the color! My face has really nice color. Not too bronze, not too tan, and not a hint of orange at all! My skin looks like the color it would normally turn if I got some sun - a little tan. I've been layering a bronzer over my blush for even deeper effects. This lotion is gradual, the color deposited is not scary, and I absolutely love it!
