I like to have a glow all year round but especially when it comes to summertime! Although I can't always achieve this naturally due to me being a big believer in protecting your skin from the sun, usually opting for SPF30 during the summer on my face and a SPF 15 on my body - this leaves my face a lot paler than my body especially as I exfoliate my face more regularly. So that's where a facial self tanner comes in, I've always liked fake tan for my body but never liked any for my face as they would either smell really bad (we all know that 'biscuit' smell), be very patchy, or clog my pores. But Clarins Liquid Bronze Self Tanning demolishes all those pesky issues, and blows all the other facial tanners out of the water! It is a perfect facial tanner in my opinion, I always know when I really love a product as I am not on the look out for anything better instead I am very content with Clarins Liquid Bronze.
Everything I want from a facial tanner, this one gives... first off it smells lovely, no hint of that fake tan smell in a sniffing distance! It is also very light, absorbs nicely and doesn't leave my face feeling sticky what so ever and doesn't clog my pores. I apply a small amount onto a cotton pad and wipe over my face and neck at night after my nighttime skincare routine. It is a gradual self tanner so after first application it gives a subtle glow, after a few nights of applying this the tan intensifies to a nice bronzed tan. I love how you don't have to be overly careful with this as its so easy to apply. I first tried this facial tanner last summer and have been loving it ever since, it makes those bare face times a lot nicer and not so scary, I find my skin always looks a lot better with a tan and any imperfections are a lot less noticeable. I used this before my trip to New York last Christmas and I took my make-up off on the plane, which was something I was not looking forward to doing as I feel self conscious without make-up on. But with the help of Clarins Liquid Bronze I was surprisingly not bothered about being bare faced in front of people, as being make-up free wasn't that drastic of a change because I still had a nice glowing, bronzed completion. So if your after a facial tanner, I couldn't recommend this one enough!
