Self-tanning can often be a nightmare… we have all gone through the ‘tangerine’ look at some point or another. I recently purchased the Clarins Radiance-Plus Golden Glow Booster which allows you to transform any of your existing skincare products into a tan/skincare hybrid. This enables you to use your moisturiser alongside this product which means no more moisturising and drying before applying your regular self tanning product.
The Radiance-Plus Golden Glow Booster is a little glass bottle filled with a concentration of self tanning active ingredients and when added to your existing moisturising cream, gel or serum, and applied to the skin, it works the same as a normal self tanning product would do. It interacts with amino acids in the corneal layer to activate skin colouring. The difference being that you can tailor the amount of concentrate you put into the cream, allowing you to create your very own made-to-measure tan.
The tiny 15ml glass bottle looks rather unassuming at first, however you only need 1-3 drops with every use depending on the depth of tan you are wanting and so it lasts a lot longer than one would first assume. All you need to do is press the bottom to dispense three drops for a deep tan or just one for a really natural look. Another appealing factor is that the application is even, non-patchy and streak-free. It even managed to fade completely rather than me looking like I have a skin condition. Although my absolute favourite feature of this tanning product is that it has a patented odourless formulation – soooo many self tanning products state that they are odourless but smell worse than a pair of very old trainers – NOT attractive.
You can purchase the Radiance-Plus Golden Glow Booster from www.clarins.co.uk for £18. They are currently celebrating their 7th birthday and have a fantastic free offer with a spend of £60 or over.
