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.

I use the ClairinsDelicious self-tanning cream on my face and its not too heavy. I put it on lightly and it actually makes my skin feel really nice and soft. It does have that "tanning lotion" smell but not as bad as others I have tried.

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.

Yes. I am also Hispanic with olive skin. Just make sure to exfoliate first before you use the product so the color will be even

no...no black pores...it's wonderful, but you do need to keep your skin exfoliated from the start.

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
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.

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.

Depends on your skin, and how tan you want to be. This really is foolproof, gives a bit of instant color, but also moisturises very well. I use it every 5 to 7 days. Very natural.
