I would love to use it on my arms and legs but would only get one application out of a jar. Maybe if I hit the lotto!

I find it too thick to use all over my body, you would need a lot of product. And with the price it would be very costly when there's way other better priced tanners for your whole body.

I'd LOVE to use this all over, but at the price it would be prohibitive. I'm guessing it would last several months, though, if just used on the face.

Since this just gives a glow and not really a "tan" look; I think it would work best on just face & decollete. I hope this helps.

I think you could use it on your body, but it is such a small container that you would use the whole thing after just a couple applications. I would NOT recommend this product for use on your body because of that--unless money is no object for you, and you don't mind purchasing a bottle of this every few days.

You could, however if you do, you will use up your jar very quiickly. it is meant only for your face/decollete because it also has properties that that smoothes out your facial wrinkles. Hope this helps!

You wouldn't be able to tan one arm with the amount of product in the jar.

This product is too privy to use on any area other than your face. It doesn't gradually tan you, you just add a glow when you wear it. Id go for a product that builds a tan or adds more color.

This is a moisturizer plus adds a touch of color. I use this on my face morning and night. Don't use additional lotion as it would be doubling up and could make your skin oily.

Daytime: I use a moisturizer that contains sunscreen. After that dries, I apply the Instant Smooth Self Tanner. Glides on, silky, smooth even application.
Evening: Apply face serum. I let that dry then apply the Instant Smooth Self Tanner.
Hope this helps!

Since this takes awhile to absorb into your skin I have been using it at night instead of the day and put it on in place of my nightly moisturizer once or twice a week. It leaves a matte finish on my skin and I prefer more of a dewy look but I have dry skin. I have put moisturizer over the top of it but that seemed to cause a breakout and if you were to put moisturizer under it then the ingredients that react with your skin to cause the tan color may not penetrate properly.

Question
How many applications do you get from a 1 oz jar?
Just curious - how far does this stretch? If I put it on in the morning, will it stay on all day or will I need to reapply. And, how many applications should I expect to get from a 1 oz. jar? Thanks!

I think you could get 2-3 months with daily usage. I use it every day, and I've had mine for a couple of weeks, and I have lots left. I don't think you need to apply more than once a day.

This product will stay on all day, and even tans you skin a bit, so you skin will still have color even after you wash it off. It is a self-tanner, not a bronzer so one application is adequate. In fact, the first couple times I used it, I put it on at night, and I still had an effect in the morning. I don't know how long the jar will last because I am still using my first jar, but I have been using it daily for about two weeks, and there is still a lot left. I would guess that it will last me another 6-8 weeks.

This is a great moisturizer. This is a great bronzer for the face. The cream itself is a tan bronze so your face instantly has color. Also, it tans your face/chest over several days. You dont need to use much. My 1 oz jar has lasted me for more than 2 months so far. I put this on after ALL of my other serums and moisturizers and before makeup.

It only needs to be applied in the morning. I use it as my foundation because it adds such beautiful color. Plus, its the only product that doesn't rub off throughout the day (I touch my face A LOT during the day and usually end up with my makeup on my hands. It will last all day and since the product is mousse like a little goes a long way.

Question
this vs Radiance-Plus Golden Glow Cream-Gel
which one gives more color? I can't decide which one to buy. I tried samples of both and I can't tell with just a sample which one darkens the skin more.

Question
What is the difference between Clarins tanners?
What is the difference between all four of Calrins tanners? I have this one (Instant Smooth) for the face and LOVE it! I would like to try more in the line but it's confusing as to what is for the body and what is for the face. I'd like one of each. Which one do you purposely wash off later and which ones do you use as is? Thanks! :)
