Tanning Friday’s Product Review: Clinique Self Sun Body Tinted Lotion – Light to Medium

I am a huge fan of Clinique products!

As one of many, who unfortunately am not blessed with the best skin, Clinque has been my knight in shining armour over the last decade. As a sufferer of oily 11askin, prone to break outs, their 3 step skin care system is quite simply, magnificent and I don’t know what I would do without it. So when I realised they also do fake tan, I could not have been more excited to try it out.

Much like the rest of their range, this tinted lotion is a must have product as it is extremely kind to your skin. It is non-acnegenic and dermatologically tested. With an oil free gel formula, the lotion goes on smoothly but with no sticky residue. It is instantly absorbed, so all that remains is an instant bronzed appearance.

11bHowever, this is not an instant tan, it develops into an even darker, rich, natural looking tan which lasts several days. As it is ‘light – medium’, the colour is very subtle and therefore is perfect for the winter months that are drawing in. If you prefer a darker colour then simply apply 2 – 3 times a week, rather than just the once.

Like all Clinique products, nothing has been over-looked! Which means the smell is very faint and is  nothing like what you would normally associate with a fake tan product. In fact, my partner actually LIKED the faint aroma this tan contains.


I would allow this tan to develop for 5 – 6 hours before showering, so the best time to apply is before you go to bed, and remember…sleep in dark loose fitting clothing (despite what this may do to the romantic element of your relationship…your partner will thank you in the morning when you wake up as a bronzed, sun-kissed goddess) and always follow the basic skin prep rules (as below).

This product is fakery at it’s very best! If like me and many others, you struggle with your skin but want to trick the world into thinking you have effortlessly 11cperfect skin, with a natural olive tone all year round, you need Clinque!

I strongly recommend this product, especially for the next few months. As the weather turns, it is important to look after your skin and help it against those harsh winter elements. This lotion also has the perfect colour and tone for this time of year and it’s easy application is just another bonus.

11eDon’t you deserve the best!? I think you do! So at just £18 per 125ml this product is excellent value for money.

Buy it here!

Try now, and thank me later!
