Which of these would be best for face?


-Satin glow firming body moisturizer by avon
-TanTowel
-L'Oreal Sublime
-Clarins Liquid Bronze Self Tanning Lotion
-St Tropez


For body I would recommend Sisley.

I'll be watching this post. I tried St. Tropez on my face last night and don't like the way it has settled into my pores, giving them a dirty look. Savage Bronze didn't do this but unfortunately that one has been discontinued. I tend to prefer mousse tanners over lotions.

I really like the L'oreal Sublime. The color is nice on my fair skin and it didn't make my acne prone skin breakout

I'm so annoyed because I actually just went to Target to get this and they only had Sublime Bronze. Sad I don't want to look like a disco ball so I picked up a can of the new Banana Boat mist tan to try.

This topic is right up my alley for the moment!! Very Happy ....I currently am in search of a sunless tanner for my face...I am using retin-a and Paula's Choice skin lightener daily to rid myself of freckling. I started indoor tanning strictly to get some color for my trip to Germany next month as normally I do not tan what so ever.

I am not tanning my face at all and want a sunless tanner to kind of blend my face with my body a bit. I wasn't even sure if I could use a sunless tanner while using retin and the lightener and asked that question on another thread...but anywho, any suggestions on a nice face tanner would be great so keep em coming!!

***Wanted to note that a patient of mine suggested the Sephora brand spray on tanner...haven't tried it yet, but she loves it, not sure I want a spray on tanner though and I think this is just a spray on tan, not the gradual tanner.....

Having tried most of them as my sister-in-law is a major rep for MAC and used to be for Lancome, Loreal, Estee Lauder and Clinique, I got lots of tubes/samples.
I have found being very fair and very sensitive to odors that Clarins has been my top favorite. Dries fast, doesn't streak and leaves a very slight odor compared to most.
For the face, Lancome's face bronzing gel with Vitamin E has been my favorite for years. A little goes a long way and looks very natural, while not breaking me out.

Clarins liquid bronze is nice and easy to apply but it did give my pimple. I might try next time the intense bronze tint.
Lancome gel give me pimple too.
I try Paula Begoun self tanner but I did not see a change. The color was not enough.
I am currently using Biotherm Sun Tan face gel and I like it a lot. Nice texture, the product is tinted so you get immediate glow and doesn't break me out. I apply at night 30 min. after my regular skincare. Hope that helps !

Barksdale-that's the one, they also used to make it in a gel, which I liked better but is harder to find.
I also like the Lancome bronzer for legs, it gives instant color while developing and adds a glow and sparkle.

I self tan my body (tan towels) but can't for the life of me keep a self tan on my face. I gave up and use a Bronzer! Works great and doesn't mess with my products.

I reapply it every 3 days and it will last as long as you continue to keep it up. If I stopped, it takes about a week to wear off.

For what it's worth,in this weeks People Magazine , May 4, 2009, on page 114, Lindsay Lohan says she's tried every product on the market and , in her opinion, Sephora's Sevin Nyne is the best formula for tanning mist.

I just read that on a plane this weekend. I was going to try it sometime since Sephora has a great return policy. If it isn't what great I will exchange it for my Clarins and more lancome.

You can use it all over the body, not just specifically for the face... Very Happy I just use it on my face because I am indoor tanning the rest of my body.
