Guerlain Terracotta Sunless Tinted Self-Tanning Gel, 10g

Product information

For the perfect illusion. Remarkable for its ultra-penetrating texture, this two-in-one tinted gel provides a double action: it offers the illusion of an instant tan (without any oily residue) and it guarantees a healthy glow that looks truer than life. Visible after one hour, the result lasts up to four days after application*. Like a successful alchemist, Guerlain has taken a subtle concentration of DHA and partnered it with 100% natural organic Argan oil, rich in polyphenols and essential fatty acids. Moisturised, evened out and silky-smooth, the skin can reveal a stunning, uniform tan.

*Instrumental test on a sampling of 10 subjects. Results obtained within 1 hour and up to 4 days after a single application" The exquisite scent of tiare flower adds to the pleasure of application!

How to apply: Apply to skin after exfoliating for an even more uniform, natural tan. Apply a smaller amount to joints (elbows and knees) to avoid the appearance of marks. Wash hands throroughly after application.

Brand Story

The GUERLAIN perfume house was founded in Paris in 1828 by Pierre-François-Pascal GUERLAIN, who opened the first boutique in the heart of the French capital, at 42, rue de Rivoli, where sophisticated women quickly head about his fragrant creations and beauty products.
180 years later, five generations of perfumers have succeeded one another in holding the creative reins, conjuring over 800 fragrances, including a number of timeless successes. Thierry Wasser is the current GUERLAIN Perfumer. He continues GUERLAIN’s bold tradition in combing the world for the most exclusive raw materials.
This sense of daring also permeates the make-up ranges, drawing on unique expertise to reveal and enhance women’s true beauty. The brand’s Iconic creations are fuelled by the imagination of its Creative Director, Olivier Echaudemaison.
The same audacious approach drives GUERLAIN Research, extracting the best nature has to offer in terms of inspiration and raw materials to create remarkable skincare products through a unique alchemy of nature and science.
Since 1828, GUERLAIN has continued to pursue an insatiable quest for the beautiful. La Petite Robe Noire, Shalimar, Habit Rouge, Terracotta, Météorites, Orchidée Impériale and Abeille Royale are just a few shining examples of this aesthetic exploration, embodied by an iconic showcase: 68, Champs-Elysées. A legendary address for a unique brand.

Q & As

Rated 5 out of 5 by 2 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Luxurious tanned skin in an instant This is one product I now wouldn't be without and have often recommended to others. Although I do use cheaper gradual tanners on a more daily basis, Sunless is a must have when you want a bit of colour prior to going out and want to look good and skin always looks better tanned, especially when it looks natural. You do need a tanning mitt and apply wherever you want a natural tan on arms, neck and chest or legs (great in the summer when you want to do without tights but cant bear to show those snow white pins). On application It gives instant natural colour, dries on contact and smells good as well. It continues to tan over the next couple of days as well, so a little goes a long way. What's not to love. Expensive but worth every penny. 10 February 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Natural colour Love this product. It is easy to apply (I prefer a mit) and is quickly absorbed into your skin. The colour is very natural, which develops over time, but because it is tinted, you can see where it has been applied. The best product on the market, in my view 14 July 2015
