Clarins Self Tanning Instant Gel

Brand: Clarins

Product: Self Tanning Instant Gel

Price: $33

Link: Sephora

What It Does (per Sephora): This lightweight and non-oily gel promotes a natural, golden tan for face and body without sun exposure. It's instantly absorbed, so there's no need to wait before dressing, with results in just two hours. Clarins Self Tanning Instant Gel is ideal for those who wish to maintain a year-round tanned appearance. 

Scent: typical self tanner smell but not too strong -- with a hint of caramel

Texture: smooth and jelly-like

Review:  The gel spreads nicely and it's hard to mess up.  The color is golden but minimal and you must build it to achieve the color you want.  The good thing is it's not the least bit orange and absorbs quickly.  It is pretty expensive and small in size so might not be worth it if you're looking for a deep tan as you will go through the tube quickly.
