Clarins Radiance-Plus Golden Glow Booster for Body

Last year, Clarins released a genius tanning product - Radiance-Plus Golden Glow Booster, a self tan concentrate you could mix with your favourite facial moisturiser for a gradual tan effect.  It was so successful, they've launched a body version this year.

It comes in a slightly larger 30ml bottle, and Clarins have helpfully given it a bronze metallic cap and bottom, so it contrasts nicely against the original face version - useful if you own both to avoid accidentally putting the body one on your face (it's a bit stronger).  The premise is the same, though - pop some body cream in your hand, squeeze four to six drops of tanner into it, mix it up, and apply.

The two major benefits are that you can control the amount of self tan that goes into your cream - scaredy cats like me can use two or three drops and be cautious - and also that you can keep using whatever body product works for you.

At £26, it's a bit more expensive than the original £18 face version, but you do get double the amount, so it works out a little cheaper.  And for the customisation potential, it's a totally worthwhile price for me.  Find it now at the Clarins website, and on counter.

Genius: Clarins Radiance Plus Golden Glow Booster

Clarins' latest self-tanning product is a wonderful idea - a teeny tiny bottle of concentrated self tan essence which you mix in with your regular moisturiser.  You only need use a couple of drops to get a gentle tan which develops naturally over time.  Clarins claim that this promotes a more natural tan because you're applying it with your moisturiser, which helps give a more even application and allows plenty of time to distribute over the face and rub in.

I really like the idea of adding something to moisturiser for a bit of a glow.  It doesn't force you to change your skincare regime at all if you want to self tan in the summer, and the relatively small outlay of £18 means you can use up your existing skincare whilst still getting some colour.  Better still, you can customise how much you use by adding between one to three drops, morning and/or night.

I rarely self tan for a number of reasons - one, because redheads with brown skin look a bit weird, and two because I'm clumsy and just know I'd end up with a patchy and/or orange face.  Radiance Plus Golden Glow Booster seems like such a gentle introduction, though, even I'm up for giving it a try.

Find it now at the Clarins website for £18.

Review: Soap and Glory Glow Getter

Disclosure:  This product was sent to us by PR for consideration.

Soap and Glory's Glow Getter is a bronzing powder spray product; you spray it onto your body (or face), blend the powder in so that it's even, and you get a "special airbrush finish" which is "amazingly authentic".  Ultimately, it's a tanning product.  And I am terrified of tanning products.  My skin is pale, pale to the extent of having a blue tinge and the ability to see the network of veins quite clearly through it.  So anything that's designed to bronze generally looks unnatural on me.  But in the interests of scientific research, I put aside my fears and bravely battled on.  Read on after the cut to see how I got on (and I warn you, there are photos of pasty legs ahead.  Sorry).
