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 décollete 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?
