Recently I changed my mind about self-tanners and now I can say that I like them. And it wasn’t much of a problem to find a body self-tanner, but it was rather an issue to find a good face self-tanner for me. You know, usually the ingredients of such products are far from being perfect, especially if we are talking about the face which is prone to clogging pores and other skin problems. And here, the Clarins brand helped me out again. They came up with the innovative product which I’ve never seen before by other brands. This is the booster self-tanned with drops. So, today we’ll speak about the Clarins Radiance-Plus Glow Booster.

Product promises:

A skin booster to be mixed with your day and night cream for a radiant, sunkissed glow.

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.

My impressions of use:

These drops have become a real discovery of spring for me. Even before the moment everybody started to take off warm clothes and began wearing jeans and tops, gracefully showing their beautiful tan, brought either from abroad or from a solarium, I started to use a self-tanner to conceal my blue-toned skin color.

I didn’t use it much, just a little bit so as not to scare everybody with my dreadfully pale skin. I was also afraid to use a self-tanner a lot, since I did a lot of skin peeling in winter so as not to irritate it. So, I needed a good face self-tanner, this is how I actually bought this booster.

What are its advantages over the other face self-tanners?

  • With this product, there’s no need for you to change your skin care products for only this one. All you have to do is to add a few drops of the booster to your favorite skin care cream (daytime preferably) and that’s all, the new light self-tanner is ready.

How to use:

  • Dab the bottom of the bottle 2 times. Mix 3 drops of the booster with your face cream. Apply the mixture on your face and massage in thoroughly. Wash your hands clean with soap.

  • I usually use 2 drops of the booster. But I apply the cream not only to my face but also to my decollete area. Since my decollete area is also problematic and prone to inflammation, I have to mix the booster with an aloe vera gel.

  • The color of the cream mixed with the booster remains the same as of the clear cream, which can be a little bit misleading, as you won’t know to which parts you’ve already applied this cream and which were still uncovered. Though I can assure you that for the time of use, I’ve never had any streaks or stains on my face after using this product.

  • After using don’t forget to wash your hands with soap thoroughly! I read somewhere that it isn’t necessary, but that’s a lie, guys! Have a look at this photo:

My cream takes longer to soak in if I mix it with the booster.

I used these miracle-drops last May until the moment my skin became naturally tanned from the sun. So, I took a break in summer and autumn. And this spring I took the product out again and use it with great pleasure now two times a week.


The results is visible the following morning (usually I apply this booster overnight). My skin looks more tanned. After three uses, the skin starts to looks as though I was in the sun for quite some time and I can see that beautiful sun kissed effect. I like the way my skin looks healthy and well after the use of this product. The booster doesn’t provoke any skin problems like clogged pores, acne or anything.

A few words about the advantages of the product:

  • with this product you don’t have to turn down your favorite skin care products

  • it doesn’t provoke acne

  • it doesn’t clog pores

  • the booster shows very beautiful and subtle result on my skin which doesn’t have any visible edges

  • it washes off delicately

  • the product goes a long way

  • the scent of this booster is bearable in comparison with other self-tanners that I’ve tried

There aren’t any disadvantages for me.

Price: $32


The Clarins Radiance-Plus Golden Glow Booster is undoubtedly my must have, as it doesn’t have any dupes! I’m absolutely delighted with the quality of it and can thoroughly recommend it for purchasing for everybody who wants to look sun-kissed all year round.

* Recently I found out that self-tanners are preferably used while pregnancy. So, I had to share this info with you.

Stay always beautiful and love yourself! =)
