It’s that time of the year for me when I need a bit of color on my skin. Feeling a bit pale and blah, I turn to my all time go to sunless tanning product, Clinique Self Sun Body Tinted Lotion. Love this product! It gives my mood a boost and with a bit of sun kissed color I feel like summer is just around the corner. First and foremost, always exfoliate before using any self tanners. Gets rid of dry skin. This helps with having your sunless tanners last longer.
My favorite as I mention is Clinique Self Sun Body Tinted Lotion. It’s extremely light, and goes on easily and smooth. Not overly thick, you don’t have to spend a lot of time trying to blend it in. The color guide is handy. A guide is added to many self tanners that allows you to see where you’ve applied the product. The guide serves almost as a “dye,” that remains on your skin until you wash it off. You’ll know if you’ve missed any areas before the actual tan or bronze color forms in a few hours. That’s a plus for me. I’m able to see where I’ve put it on my body.
Looking for a self tanning lotion that’s easy to apply? You can’t do much better than this product. It dries extremely fast compared to most other self tanners. In around 25 minutes, it’s pretty much completely dried. The smell is citrusy. I do like that. It’s a nice scent. That is something I can’t say about a lot of self tanners. I’ve tried many. This one doesn’t rub off on your sheets or clothes as well. Another plus in my book! Clinique Self Sun Body Tinted Lotion produced a very nice, bronze color. I use light to medium. However, when I want a tad more color, I use the next shade up, medium to dark. It wasn’t extremely dark, it was perfect! I appreciate that, especially since I’m fair skinned to begin with. If you like being extra dark, apply Clinique Self Sun Body Tinted Lotion twice. Give it 2 hours before second application. As for streaking or that dreaded orange color, I didn’t notice it anywhere on my body.
I’ve noticed that Clinique Self Sun Body Tinted Lotion lasted a little longer than many other of the self tanning products I have tried. It started to fade after about 4 days, and was pretty much completely gone after about 7. Not to mention that this product faded very smoothly and evenly, which is rare for self tanners. Even after about 5 days, I wasn’t getting a lot of splotches that you see with other products.
A 4.2 ounce tube of Clinique Self Sun Body Tinted Lotion runs about $23.00 depending on where you buy it. Not bad considering how well it works and lasts. I purchase mine at Sephora.com! I look kissed by the sun on these chilly months, and that’s two thumbs up for me!
This is a great way to get an easy tan if you don’t have time to get a spray tan!
