Questions & Answers for Clarins Self Tanning Milk Broad Spectrum SPF 6 Sunscreen

Question
Does the color rub off on your clothes when you sweat?
I live in Texas, so it is almost aways hot outside and on top of that we play basketball outside during the hottest part of the day. Will this color rub off on my clothes?

The color comes off gradually. If you are involved in vigorous exercise over a sustained period of time, it will come off more, especially if you sweat a lot.

I've had this happen with the spray on tans. I haven't noticed this one rubbing off - I rub it in well and let it dry before I put on my clothes.

I haven't noticed the color rubbed off or stained on my clothes by sweats. But, maybe that's only because I normally apply it to my body at night and go to bed after it's completely dry. Then, next morning, I take a quick shower. Even while asleep, which is right after applying the lotion and before taking a shower, the color does not seem to stain on my bed sheets. Here in NYC, it's been really hot over 85 degrees during the day lately, I still haven't noticed the color stains on my clothes. Hope this will help.

It's not a bronzer so if you wait to dress about 20-30 minutes after application, it will not "rub" off on your clothes and it does not sweat off.

It might. I apply it before bed and I notice a few small streaks on my sheets once in a while. I shower every morning to wash off the smell and I don't reapply until bedtime again, so it won't wear off on my clothes in the day. If you wash well, exfoliate, I don't think it will rub off on your clothes, even if you sweat.

It's fast drying, but for me personally it takes a few hours for the color to actually show up. I just put it on before bed & wake up to color! =]

I noticed that I was a shade or two darker about 4 hours after applying. My husband didn't notice, but I definitely felt that my skin tone was evened out.

I notice a bronzed glow right after applying! It was very surprising but you actually notice it right away although the bottle says an hour.

I use this product on face, sparingly, I have combination skin. If you have oily or acne prone skin, I would caution against using it on the face. It is a bit heavy.

It should not be used on face, as it is a "tanning" cream and could dry, You might check for a face tanner or bronzer.,

Question
what is the difference between the milk and the gel?
I am very, very pale and am currently on the fence with this product in general. I've never used a self-tanner before and am terrified of looking orange. If this product works (it seems to have a lot of positive reviews), I am curious as to which to buy.

I can only speak to the milk - which is like a thick lotion - spreads evenly but isn't milky and runs. Go with a light coat the first day - I think you'll be thrilled - I've never had it look orange - the best thing is it smells nice - many of the self tanners have a certain smell.

I bought the milk, because it sounded smoother to apply. I'm also VERY fair was afraid of looking orange, but this gave me a natural looking tone. I did not try it on my face - used a bronzer mixed in with my regular powder to try and even out the difference.
