When my favourite beauty bloggers highly recommend something it immediately goes onto my lust list on my phone. This purchase I blame on Anna from Viviannadoesmakeup after raving about the Clarins Liquid Bronze Self-Tanning Lotion in numerous posts and youtube videos. Due to my very very pale skin complexion I often need a little colour just to take the edge off.
In the past I had tried a whole range of facial tanners that either clinged to dry patches, went streaky if applied in a rush or didn't add a splash of bronze at all. So when I came across it in my local beauty salon when having my eyebrows waxed (and it came with a few freebies) I couldn't resist.
The easiest way to describe it is like a milk, its quite watery in comparison to most fake tans. Once applied all over the face it sinks in super quick so is ideal as a final step in your evening skincare or in the morning a few minutes before you apply your make up. I like to apply it a couple of times a week with my hands to I work it more accurately around my hair line and blend it around my décolletage but it can be applied with a cotton pad if you prefer. For £18 (I think it can be found cheaper online) I think its great for girls that need that little bronze boost.
As I also brought the Clarins Extra-Firming Day cream for my mum (She can't live without it) I was allowed to pick three (large) samples so I chose the hugely popular Beauty Flash Balm which I had never tried before and now can't apply my make up without, the Smoothing Body Scrub which is such a nice exfoliator I like to use weekly for a pick me up and the Vital light day SPF 15 which came in handy over the few days of sun we have had so far.
As a Clarins virgin before this mini haul I am really impressed and keen to try a few more, I would say its a little pricier when I would usually spend on skincare but after the difference it has made I think it is worth the investment.
Are there any Clarins Products you think I should try next?
