Questions & Answers for Clarins Delectable Self Tanning Mousse SPF 15

Question
Is this EDIBLE? Flavored?
Since it says "delectable" on the jar and the description, is this edible? Is this flavored? Edible meaning safe to eat, lickable, kissable, etc. Does it taste like anything? (candy, vanilla, etc?)

Pretty sure that it's not edible...they probably just meant the texture is "delectable".

It is not edible. The word "delectable" used as an adjective actually just means "pleasing", not "delicious". The marketing simply is saying that unlike most self-tanners which have a very strong chemical smell that lingers, this has a fruity smell that masks the chemicals for the most part, so it smells "yummy".

Hi,

This product says "for external use only." However, if you were to be kissed, etc., I doubt it would not harm you or the other person in such small amounts. With that said, I would not say it is edible directly from the container (unlike other edible beauty products).

It does not have a particular smell (vanilla, coconut or such) it does not however, smell strong like some self-tanners. But it does smell like a typical beauty product such as a face cream.

I think Clarins calls this product delectable because of its consistency; it is light and fluffy and feels like the the mouse dessert.

Not edible. It doesn't smell bad, but it starts to smell like all self tanners smell after a while.

This product, will not create a comedone. Best is to exfoliate, and moisturize prior to applying to the skin, you will get a beautiful even colour. You only need to apply this to the skin once, every 4-5 days.

It says it is on the box, but I saw in the reviews that someone broke out from using it, so if you're super sensitive, I would stay away.

It is made for the face. The only sunless tanning product I've found that does not break me out. I've got olive skin and use the product daily. If you have fair skin, you might want to try every other day.

Yes! I have medium toned, combination skin and I LOVE this product for my face.

My skin also tends to be sensitive, so I stay away from products with chemical sunscreens like the ones contained in this product, but it's never made me break out or irritated my skin.

The mousee is so light and fluffy. It's so creamy too. It hydrates my skin. I apply it at night and when I wake up in the morning, I look as if I just got back from vacation. My skin is a soft brown (Not orange) and it's so soft. I feel that the mousse hydrates your skin and keeps it soft. I would never use anything else.

I am very skeptical about using the creams however, this stuff is light and blends perfectly if you blend it without streaks. Much lighter in application and use it on the neck too. You can use it all over the body but it would go fast as it is expensive so I use a cheap drugstore self tanner moisturizer that is very popular for larger body parts. It works!

The Mousse should last you 3 months or longer, you only need to apply it to the skin Once, every 4-5 days. Always exfoliate, and moisturize before every new application, and you will be wonderfully surprized how beautiful your skin looks.

Question
What type of finish to the skin?
I noticed that this is a 3-in-1 product that moisturizes as well as self-tans, and is also a sunscreen. It sounds too good to be true. What look does it leave on the skin? Does it look oily, greasy or shiny? I'm looking for a natural, dewy finish.

The Finish to the Mousse Tanner is Natural, it does mosturize, but does not take the place of body cream. One application will give you easily 5 days of colour!! Anyone who purchases this will be so surprise with how amazing your skin will look!!

You can tan with this on Outdoors, it has an SPF 15, I do recommend that you apply this prior to any other product on the skin, as the active ingredients need to touch fresh skin.
