Clarins Radiance-Plus Golden Glow Booster


Clarins Radiance-Plus Golden Glow Booster Made to Measure Self Tan
A faux glow, for your face

If you are an avid follower of the new beauty products set to create a stir in 2014, or happened to glance at Stylist magazine a few weeks ago, you would have heard about Clarins’ latest addition to the fake tan market…a faux glow for your face. Clarins Radiance-plus Glow Booster Made to Measure Self Tan (and breathe!) is a little tube of golden elixir that is simply added to your night cream or moisturiser to transform your skin from pale to sun-kissed overnight. If you are a slave to the self-tan then you will know that finding a product that is suitable for you face that doesn’t break you out or leave you feeling (and looking) a little muddy is a tricky one. I personally don’t like to fake tan my face at all for fear of streaks or spots, so this new product from Clarins is such a revelation in my eyes and is so simple and fool-proof to use. 

With the golden glow booster in one hand and a palm-full of your night cream in the other, you are your own tanning mixologist! The intensity of the tan that develops overnight is dependent on how many drops of the apricot-scented oil you add. At first this may be a bit of trial and error but for a medium, natural-looking tan I would punt for two drops. One less is barely noticeable and one more will give you a bit more of an obvious, golden glow – perfect if you wanted to forego the foundation or bronzer for the day and just slap on your mascara and lipgloss for a no-makeup makeup look. And now for the science bit – apparently the golden-glow booster interacts with the amino acids in your skin to create a custom-made shade that oozes radiance and a healthy golden glow, without feeling heavy or sticky on your face. I was lucky enough to get my mitts on a sample whilst I was in Paris with Clarins last month and already know that it is going to be a big hit this Summer. I love the ease and control you have with this product, seamlessly mixing it in with your favourite moisturiser to guarantee you a warm, glowing complexion when you wake! I have been using it once every week or so recently, usually just before the weekend when I want my skin to look its best, giving me the perfect bronzed base for a flawless finish or simply the confidence to opt for a fresher face with just a stippling of BB cream and a slick of gloss! 

The Clarins Radiance-plus Golden Glow Booster is released on 30th March 2014, available online and on counters, and will cost £18. Any you tempted by these golden elixir?

    Nunca había visto uno que se mezclase con la crema, pero me parece una buena idea 🙂

    I'm definitely going to look more into this product! There was so much hype about the Clarins bronzers last year so I have a feeling these will be popular! xxx
