I would not suggest you to use this on your face. The face is more sensitive than other parts of the body and also the most visible. I have sensitive skin so I am a fanatic about keeping body and face separate. You are free to try it, but I really don't suggest it though.

Because this self-tanner is so greasy, I wouldn't. It would probably break you out.

The Clarins Delicious Self-Tanning Cream is meant for the body but can also be used on your face. We recommend doing a test patch to avoid any allergic reactions you may have or you can also consult your physician before using the product on your face. We hope this helps!

Nope! I shower, apply overnight onto shaved legs, shower again in the morning to take off excess color, and no more color comes off after my first morning wash. Shave or do whatever afterwards; it's a great product.

Um, no. Even though it says delicious, I assume it's because of the cocoa it contains and how moisturizing it is (thus delicious to skin). However since it is a tanning cream it probably contains a whole bunch of chemicals that would make it unsafe to eat.

This works well with fair skin. I am fair and use just a bit every few days. You will stand out if the only tan you have is on your face. Try Charlotte Ronson for body.

No. This will not turn you very dark (unless you do more than 3 applications). It also won't turn you orange. This will make you more golden-bronze. Just make sure to exfoliate and moisturize before you apply. If you really are uber terrified, ask for a sample to bring home and try.

Question
Can you apply this self-tanning cream twice a day?
I have olive skin, brown eyes, and hair. I would like to know if you can apply this cream twice a day - once in the morning then late at night? Would that be too much or is that okay to do?

Yes, you can apply it twice a day. Just make sure you leave a couple of hours in between applications to allow for drying time(approx 30mins) and to let the color develop(2-3 hrs).

NO! Once a day is fine. As a matter of fact, you should use this no more than 2 times a week. The tan lasts a long time and it is too expensive to use daily.

It would definitely be okay, because i found that one application barely gave me any color. The only thing I would warn you about is that is is pretty greasy, so your skin will look a bit shiny if you apply it twice daily.

exfoliate well in the shower, then moisturize and let the lotion dry before applying the cream with a tanning mitt to ensure the best results. the color is very natural looking and it builds gradually. i applied a very thin coat the first time and did not notice any change in my skin color so the second application i applied a little bit more and was able to see the color in a few hours. it's very light but noticeable color compared to my natural skin color (also very pale). the color itself, by this second coat is a very light caramel color. I'm happy with the results.

You can use this on your face, but clarins also makes a good one for face and decollete. The formula isn't as thick, so I find it easier to apply for strategic tanning--lol.

You can use it on your face but will not get the same exact color you get on the rest of your body. I use this on my face, and I seem to have to reapply it once a day. It will give you a nice hint of color if that is what you are looking for.

This isn't think or heavy by any means but when I tried it for the face it "settled" into my pores, brows, and hair line...not cute! So I tried mixing it with a bit of moisturizer to lighten it up even further and it worked well.

Hi there!

Yes, of course; this product does contain DHA (the carrot derrivative to make the colour look golden on skin). The smell is very faint, but it is there. It's highly effective and you need to apply it only once, as the application ration is about one application to three days.

Hope this helps!

It takes 2-3 hrs for the color to develop, so I would say wait at least 2 hrs ( I would wait 3 just to be safe). With this cream being so expensive I would hate to wash away the color before it has developed. The leaflet/instructions that come with the product do not provide this information

I put it on at night, sleep in it and wash it off in the morning. Or I get up put it on under my makeup and wash it off in my evening shower.
