This one container will last me (on average) all season long, probably into next fall. Did you know, you can mix it with your moisturizer (half strength) to maintain the glow, once you've achieved that perfect shade? I wouldn't try mixing it with any specialty body lotions sych as anti-aging or ones that have heavy chemical components; scented ones are fine.

1 application lasts approximately 4-5 days, depending on how much you shower of course. I haven't used all of the product yet but I would say there are approximately 10-12 applications per tub.

Please see my review.

Question
Will it come off while swimming?
I have light skin and do not tan well so I use self tanners and was wondering if this product stays on you while swimming? I mean if I use it 2 or 3 days before I go swimming will it stay on in the water or will there be a brown spot around me in the water? Thanks!!

Yes, some color may come off.
1) Every time your body comes in contact with water ie:showers/swimming the color will fade.

2) You wont be able to tell while you are in the water but when you dry off there will be color on your towel; do not use white towels.

I asked this in the store and apparently the cream is tinted so you can see where it's been applied.

I have been told the cream is better for dry skin and the gel for oilier skin.

My skin is on the drier side. I have used both the gel and the cream and prefer the cream. My skin feels tight when I use the gel.

Question
How often should I apply the Clarins Delicious Self Tanning Lotion??

IMO the color fades in approx 4-5 days (showering every 2nd day). Of course it also depends how often you are in the water, ie: swimming, showering.

I like the color to be fairly dark so I re-apply every 3-4 days and I have very light skin.

Tip: If you want your tan to last do not exfoliate every time you shower. Only exfoliate in the shower just before you re-apply the product.

Question
VS St. Tropez?
I have used this brand before and know I liked how believable the color comes out, but always felt like it didn't quite make me dark enough. How do those of you who have used St. Tropez feel about it vs that line? I am fair, if that helps. Thank you!

I'm fair-skinned as well. I used to use Clarins and now I've switched to St. Tropez gel and lotion and couldn't be happier. The clarins is a nice moisturizer but the color builds so gradually, it requires several days worth of applications. That tends to eat your product up very quickly. With St. Tropez you will get a BLAST of color with the very first application! You'll love it.

I am fair and stick mostly with clarins. You have more control to build but with Tropez it can get way Brown and patchy on our skin.

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.
