I think I may be bordering on tan-orexic…
You know…when you think you’re never quite brown enough…but everybody is telling you that you most definitely are?
I’ll admit I am a little obsessed with self tanners.
Ok. I’ll admit I am a lot obsessed with self tanners.
I have a cupboard full of tanning creams, foams, gels, sprays, mitts, aftersun, before sun, during sun and everything in between. I may even consider myself somewhat of an expert in the self tanning field!
So when this little bottle of liquid gold appeared in my hand recently, (thanks Mum) I was intrigued.
What it is:
A skin booster to be mixed with your day and night cream for a radiant, sunkissed glow.
What it is formulated to do:
Three drops to sunkissed skin. This is the first ever self-tanning innovation from the Clarins laboratories. From sunkissed to sun-drenched, simply mix with your regular day or night cream to gradually develop natural-looking, beautifully bronzed skin. Golden Glow Booster’s 99.8 percent natural formula combines natural DHA and erythrulose with aloe vera extract to help preserve skin’s softness while giving your complexion a healthy-looking glow.
What else you need to know:
Golden Glow Booster must be mixed with moisturizer—never use straight from the bottle. You may resemble an Oomp-Loompa. And remember… wash your hands.
It’s actually marketing genius. The bottle is cute and bronzey and because its so small (15mm) it gives the impression it must be a very powerful elixir!
And, you ‘customise’ how many drops you add, so you feel like you are more in control of your level of tan. But in reality, we can just spray more, or foam more if we want a deeper tan the old fashioned way with the regular products.
I used it for the first time in the AM. You know how by the end of a working day you can look a little washed out and tired? Well, this booster quietly kicks in around noon and slowly washes you with some sun kissed glow. Thus, reducing the need to touch up makeup, and you look a whole lot fresher.
Overall, I liked it.
RRP is $35 and available from Sephora, David Jones, Myer and Mecca.
Treat yourself and give it a shot….
