Pros: a little goes a long way, beautiful shade, doesn’t clog pores, goes well with any moisturizer, gradual tan, lightweight, natural looking, no red pigment
Cons: can’t think of any

It's so important to have a sun-kissed and glowing complexion all year round, isn't it? This is where this booster can really help you out!

The full name of the product:

Clarins Radiance-Plus Golden Glow Booster

Product says:

First-ever self tanning innovation! Just 3 drops, added to your Clarins day and/or night moisturizer, warm the complexion with a sun-kissed glow — for a healthy look, all year long. Clarins' exclusive 99.8% natural formula promotes perfectly natural, even results. All that, plus the benefits of your daily skin care. Golden Glow Booster must be used in combination with a moisturizer and never alone. Lets you create a natural-looking, sun-kissed glow. Gradual self tanning results.



I have both boosters, face and body boosters and their packages look almost the same. The volume of the face booster is two times less than of the body booster which is just 15 ml.

But in all other respects the products look the same:

It’s a see-through rubberized bottle with a nozzle dropper.

Inside the bottle there’s liquid of semi-golden color.

You can mix these drops with your regular face moisturizer. Most of all I like mixing them with my face serum. Thanks to its water-based consistency, the booster drops mix into the formula very quickly and easily. And I also appreciate how easy it is to apply this mixture over my face.

The product goes a really long way.

2 or 3 drops are enough for me to look tanned the next day. After using, I can feel a very slight yet detectable and pleasant scent over my face, even though they claim that the product is unscented.

Three drops to sunkissed skin. This is the first ever self-tanning innovation from the Clarins laboratories. From sunkissed to sun-drenched, simply mix with your regular day or night cream to gradually develop natural-looking, beautifully bronzed skin. Golden Glow Booster's 99.8 percent natural formula combines natural DHA and erythrulose with aloe vera extract to help preserve skin's softness while giving your complexion a healthy-looking glow.

I usually add 1 or 2 drops into the serum every other day. If I want a more visible and popping effect, I add 3 or 4 drops then.

Why have I decided to buy the face booster separately, even though I’ve already had a body booster?

Because I used to think that the face booster has more skin-friendly components which are so important for the gentle skin of the face. After all, there must have been a reason the manufacturer released the two products for different parts of the body indeed. Before purchasing the face booster, I decided to add a few drops of the body booster to my serum and apply it over my face. As a result, I woke up in the morning with my face much more tanned than the rest of the body. The reason is that the face is much more sensitive to the booster’s components. If you still want to use the body booster over your face, then be sure to use the minimum of the drops, as even the small amount of them will give a visible effect on your skin. So, in general I can say that you can easily get by with only one body booster, as they both have similar ingredient lists. The only thing that is different is probably the concentration of the active components which is higher in the body booster. You’ll have to find the best amount of drops to apply over your face then. For example, I found out that I need only 1 drop of the body booster to apply over my face so as not to look over-tanned in the morning.

Anyways, I still recommend this face booster for purchasing. There are some reasons for that. First of all, the face booster is almost unscented, while the body booster has some scent to it. Secondly, the face booster has a milder effect and it works friendlier to the gentle face. The skin on our face is much different than the skin on the rest of the body, this is why we have to treat it differently.
