I’ve seen a lot of blog posts about this so far so sorry if this is a bit of overkill readers, but to spice things up a bit, this isn’t a review. Generally speaking I like to do reviews only on my blog unless it’s something really exciting, in which case I’ll share it without a review.
This is the case with the Clarins Radiance-Plus Golden Glow Booster. Being described as the generation of self tanner, this certainly is a great new innovation. Suitable for all skin types this is essentially a gradual tan kind of product. It’s a small bottle of serum, 15ml to be exact, but don’t be alarmed, it’s not terribly expensive at £18 and a little goes a very long way. Basically, mix 1,2 or 3 drops with your day or night cream and apply as usual for a sun kissed glow that is both natural and customisable. So instead of putting tanning products on your face and a) risking break outs if you are that way inclined, and b) risking a streaky orange mess, this is a gentle gradual subtle colour. You can use 1, 2 or 3 drops as I already said and top up as often as required to build up the colour you wish.
It’s properly clever stuff I think!
Now the reason I’ve not tried this (yet) is that I have a proven track history of utterly failing with ALL tanning products, be they gradual or otherwise. I am so pale everything looks orange and unnatural on me and I always get at least one big streak. I do have faith in this product and I would be prepared to try it on my face and I would trust that it would be streak free…but when I’m so deathly, milk bottle, glow in the dark white, I can’t see how having a golden glow on my face won’t look odd….
Until I crack tanning my body, I’m not overly keen on walking around with a mismatched face! BUT, if I was going to, this is the product I’d try it with!
It is usually available from www.clarins.co.uk but is currently out of stock, but I would recommend checking your local counter. I’m sure it will be restocked soon online.
