I see reviewers stating they use a cotton pad to apply this, is that the same as a "cotton ball" ?

I use a cotton pad (or square) but a cotton ball will work just fine.

cotton ball...cotton pad...whatever - its just that it's only TINT- not lotions or foams or any ingredients (makes it TOTALLY worth the money since that's all you get is the tint!) but if you tried to put some on your fingers it would drip off and be a mess.

yes, cotton ball or cotton pad are both fine, the reason is that you can't just put it on your fingertips like you would with a lotion because it would drip right off...

Same textile, but the pad is a flat cotton disk! The cotton ball is round, you could smush down the cotton ball- but the pad has more tightly packed cotton fibers!! USE A COTTON PAD!! You'll get fuzzies everywhere with a cotton ball!

You can use a cotton ball or a cotton disk. I prefer a disk because it has more surface area, and seems to not soak up all of the product like a cotton ball seems to do. However both options work great!

No .. i find that if you use a cotton ball . its too small and it'll become streaky. also with a cotton ball you get all the little cotton pieces all over your body. use a cottan pad its much better andmuch easier.

Question
Is it a self-tanner or is it a bronzer?
I guess I am trying to figure out if this washes off like a bronzer would or if it's an actual self-tanner that wouldn't wash off. Also, can it be used on the entire body, or just the face/neck/chest area?

I feel like its a little of both, the color will be noticeable right away and deepen the more times you use it, it seems to come off a little after washing your face but there is SO much in that bottle and you use such a small amount that it will last a long time.

answer 2
its a self tanner, you prob could use it for your whole body but the best way to apply it is with a cotton ball or pad so I don't think that would be feasible for the entire body

It's definitely tanner. It can be used every day but you would look like you just got back from Jamaica! It's a great product...it works in the summer or the winter...makes you look completely natural!

to me it sort of seems like an in between product, it definitely 'bronzes" you right away, but then it doesn't seem to hold like a true self tanner would. i feel like most of it washes off. not all, but most.

It's a tanner, not a bronzer. It cannot be washed off, as it's a "stain." But it does fade over a few days, so you need to re-apply to keep up the tan. I've never used this on my body. I use cotton balls to apply this to my face, so applying to my entire body seems a bit tedious. I apply this to my face and neck, and use L'oreal sublime tanning spray/mist on my body in between spray tans.

IMO it's BOTH!! It gives an IMMEDIATE, INSTANT TINT! However, when you wash your face (as long as you don't exfoliate while washing) a tan will be left, just a bit lighter....but your skin will still look insanely GLOWY! It's like a tropical vacation tan in a bottle!

It goes on like a bronzer,then you develop a gradual tan after several applications. I prefer to apply it before the mosturizer. It dries on quickly and you get a natural looking tan

it's like water. It doesn't have any additives to it. I like it for that reason. You aren't paying for any lotion you get strictly tint.

I am not familiar with Clarins gel - this is a liquid. It looks almost like iodine but gives you a beautiful, natural color. I use it on my face, chest, back of neck and top of shoulders.

I find if you don't want to wear gloves, the easiest way to remove the brown stain from your fingers/hands (because regular soap and water won't do it) is to use a little Windex (or other similar glass cleaner). "Wash" your hands with that, and rinse and you should see brown washing down the drain. Then do it again just to be sure you get it all. Doing it this way gets it all off. I learned that tip from an airbrush tan salon. Always works. No brown hands for two days, while allowing you not to use gloves, which are sometimes difficult.

This particular product is the consistency of water. To apply, you have to use a cotton ball or cotton disk and swipe over your face. So compared to other tanners on the market, this is a truly unique product. In that sense I think this product gives the most believable, true to color looking tan. Compared to the Clarins self tan gel, I believe this gives a more olive-based, true tan. I have also used the Clarins Delicious tanner in the tub, however it seemed to look a bit orange when applied to the face. Definitely give this one a shot, you will not be disappointed ! And one tube lasts FOREVER.

In my opinion, yes, it is darker than the cream and the gel. This is strictly a LIQUID, and so it has to be applied with cotton pads. Think of a "stain" like the ones out there for blush and lips. It stains the skin almost immediately, although it does build over the next few hours. I really like the color. My problem with this product is the need for some kind of an applicator, better than just cotton. It immediately stains the tips of my fingers a dark brown (soaking through the cotton instantly. And it takes a day or so to get the stain off. I hope I've answered your question. I happen to buy both the products you mentioned, including this one and the gel/cream.

the Liquid bronze self tanning is like a milk lotion...where as the tint is just that, a tint. It's watery- it needs to be applied with a cotton ball or pad. If you tried to put this on your hands and apply it all you would get is a mess. I love the tint. It's super easy to use and I love that I am not paying for "lotion" I get ONLY the tinted color...not the added extra stuff like lotion
