Clarins Instant Smooth Self Tanning, 30ml

Product information

A caramel tinted complexion perfector and self tanner in one.

A new clever cosmetic shortcut that instantly tints the skin for a look that’s weekend-fresh and progressively develops into a gorgeous, semi-permanent sun-kissed glow. The whipped mousse texture is fresh and light, and just as you’d expect from a self tanner inspired by Instant Smooth, it’s also silky soft and glides effortlessly over the skin for a super-smooth, even and long-lasting finish. Think instant, re-touched, sun-kissed skin - in a jar! The self tan element takes just 1-2 hours to develop and for a progressively deeper colour apply daily to face and décolleté and then re-apply every 2-3 days.

Using the fingertips, stroke Instant Smooth Self Tanning evenly over the face and décolleté, avoiding the brows and hairline. Apply daily until you reach the required colour intensity and then reapply every 2-3 days. Wash hands thoroughly, especially around nails, directly after application. For best results, exfoliate the day before. To keep colour true, only wash using pH balanced products.

Q & As

Rated 3.8 out of 5 by 5 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent This is a brilliant product to use at any time of the year. It gives a natural healthy glow with or without a tan. Instant smooth is a rich soothing cream and is available without the tanning element. I highly recommend it. 17 March 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Name of product is encompassed in its title. This is my third purchase of this product. It's fantastic, the best self tanning product for the face I have used. You only need a small amount of the cream, perhaps on alternate days, to keep the face glowing with colour. It gives a smoothing appearance to the skin. It also has a long shelf life and I feel it gives very good value. I have recommended this product to quite a few go my friends and fsmily who have purchased it and who also are very happy. I would not hesitate to purchase another one and recommend it to my friends. 29 July 2014
Rated 1 out of 5 by Not for me I was really excited to try this as I read the reviews and it seemed like a really good product. Unfortunately it just did not seem to gel with my skin. The consistency was nice and smooth and rich and I quite like the smell, but the colour was all wrong. I thought it gave an orange tinge at first and then as the day progressed it got significantly more orangey and unnatural looking. I have yellow undertones and slightly olive skin so perhaps it is meant for different colouring. If you have a similar skin tone and don't like to look anything orange then I would steer clear! 04 May 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Versatile Product I love this product and have worked my way through three pots! it calms my sensitive skin and gives a lovely colour as a light foundation,whilst the very natural self-tanning colour develops underneath. Worn as makeup, with a light dusting of Bobbi Brown Bronze and Rose (as blusher) Shimmer Bricks, the effect is very flattering. 29 January 2012
Rated 3 out of 5 Not as good as other products in the range I've used clarins self tanning products for years and am always keen to try their new versions. Colour coverage is even but takes a number of days to build up to desired colour and I have quite pale skin. It has an overpowering smell of almonds (more specifically marzipan) which i personally didnt like but is better than the smell of other self tanning products 23 November 2011
