Clarins Liquid Bronze Self Tanning | Review

Sunday, 19 January 2014


This had been on my wishlist since forever and I finally managed to get it at Christmas much to my delight (let's pretend I didn't actually buy it myself and then tell my boyfriend it was from him, ahem.) I'd read so many glowing reviews of it and I couldn't wait to try it out and see if it worked for me.

I'm not a religious fake tanner although I do feel more confident when I'm a bit bronzed. I've been using Xen Tan Mousse Intense and absolutely loving it for my body, but I wanted something a little more subtle for my face that I could apply regularly without too much hassle.

I like to apply it at night with a cotton wool pad to save from any potential staining on my fingers and also because I feel it's distributed a bit more evenly across my face as the product is quite light in consistency.
I apply it after I've removed all of my makeup to my face (taking care to avoid the hairline and eyebrows) and d├ęcollete and I tend to use about 2 applications the size of a penny for coverage to my satisfaction.

I was worried that it would leave me looking tangoed or break me out but I'm pleased to say that when I wake up in the morning, I have a lovely natural looking, sunkissed glow that is not orange in the slightest and it leaves my skin feeling soft and moisturised to boot.

I like to apply it about twice a week and it doesn't seem to be going down too quickly at the moment. I'm really pleased that I finally got my hands on it and when it does run out, I'll definitely be repurchasing as it just does the job perfectly. It's not the cheapest at £18 from most stockists but I picked mine up on Escentual for £14.40 and it arrived within a couple of days.


What do you think to facial tanners? Have you tried the Clarins one?

  1. I never tan my face because everything breaks me out but this might be the answer!

  2. I use this product on my face too, great isn't it :) my only problem is I don't find the tan lasts on me after & cleanse & tone ever morning & evening. Sounds like it's really working for you though Hun.

    1. Ahh no! Yeah it doesn't last for too long but I'm a bit lazy with my evening skin routine so it tends to stay on a bit longer haha xx

  4. I've been wanting a product like this for my face so that's great that it's nice and subtle. Applying it with cotton wool is such a good idea.

    1. Heheh it sure is! Do not want to be tangoed! I managed to get a massive orange streak down my leg doing novice tanning for my 21st birthday, thank goodness it was dark in the restaurant! x

    1. Oh me too! I'd have everything by them if I could afford it. I'm so lazy too, it's such a ritual and this makes things a bit easier ;) x
