Around two years ago I always had a bottle of Clarins Liquid Bronze on the go and after reading all the rave reviews I decided to pick up another bottle. I always loved using this as its so simple and fuss free but I cant say I remember it being the be all and end all which is the reason I had to order a bottle and try it out again. My face is always a lot paler than my body so I was in need of a natural tanner for the face anyway.
My bottle seems to be different from everyone elses, maybe its new? Liquid Bronze should be applied to the face after cleansing and toning then once its had a few minutes to dry you can go ahead and apply your usual moisturiser. It DOESNT go on after moisturiser, moisturiser creates a barrier between your skin and the tan making it pretty pointless and a waste of product. The smallest drop on a cotton pad is enough to cover your entire face and neck but I tend to do 2 coats as the result is so natural. Liquid Bronze would work brilliantly for people with very fair skin as I dont find it to be orange at all but darker skins wouldnt really see much benefits because its so natural. You can build it up each night untill you're happy with the results, I tend to apply it every other night.
The main thing I love about Liquid Bronze is that it doesnt gather in pores like most tan. I hate when tanners make me look as if I'm covered in blackheads, you dont get that at all with this. Theres never an obvious line where the tan starts and stops and I havent had any issues with streaks.
I do really like Liquid Bronze but unlike the majority, it isnt something I would class as a Holy Grail product. You can get similar results by mixing a lotion tan with some of your usual moisturiser and save yourself £17.50
