Self Sun Face Tinted lotion and Body Tinted lotion By Clinique

Self-Tanners are a big item this time of year. The problem is finding one that gives natural sun color, not orange or fake looking color

Of Course, Clinique has again cornered the market on this concept. They developed a self-sun for face and body which gives a golden tan look in a few hours. The Self Sun Body lotion is made with a slight tint to 1, give you some instant color. The color in Self Sun Body also helps with application, so  2 you can apply evenly, it shows where it goes!

It’s better to use a thin layer to start and reapply another thin layer next day.

A couple of key things.

  1. For best key results, exfoliate first and be careful of excess application to neck or forehead.
  2. Smooth over face and neck, avoid eye area, also eyebrows and hairline, can make it look fake.
  3. Immediately wash hands with soap and water!!
  4. VERY Important allow 15 Minutes to dry before contact with clothes and hair. Wait at least 4 hours before swimming, showering or applying sunscreen.
  5. Remember a self-tan “Does not provide sun protection”. Always wear daily sunscreen with SPF15 or higher.

Self Sun Body lotion comes in a copper toned tube 4.2oz for $27.50 and is available in light/medium or medium/deep shades which is another perk!

Clinique’s Self-Sun face tinted lotion gives you instant color. The golden tan develops in a few hours and lasts about three days. Self-Sun face goes on smooth looks natural and there are no surprises since it shows where it goes. This is Self-Tanning with a plus!!

The first time I used Self Sun Face, I made sure to exfoliate my face with Clinque’s 7 Day scrub (more on that in another blog). Then I applied it evenly with a makeup sponge, this may sound crazy put for the face it gives a more even look than your fingers. What you may waste on the sponge absorption is made up by how great it looks after.  And since it has a color you can see where it goes which makes it easier to apply.

FYI Self Sun Face is oil free so great for acne prone skin, no chance of breakouts.

Lastly Clinique has Sun Kissed Face Gelee Complexion Multitasker. The Sun Kissed Face Gelee is an instant pick me up for skin. It is sheer oil free gel that creates a warm glow.

When I first tried this Gelee I was skeptical, it comes out as a very dark bronze color that is scary. But a little goes a long way. You can apply it separately but works best when mixed with foundation. It then gives skin a nice glow of color and a sun kissed look. If used alone it can look fake depending on your natural skin color and evenness of aplicationo It may stain a little on hands but comes off easily with soap and water.

This sheer Sun Kissed Face Gelee removes easily at end of day with make up remover.

This Gelee is available in a bronze flat tube of 1.6 oz for $28.00 in a universal glow color.
