Clarins Radiance Plus Golden Glow Booster

Do you find fake-tanning a faff? (And to be honest, who doesn't, at least sometimes?) Well, we've been happilly using the face version of this for a while now. Just add a drop (or two or three) to your usual night cream (or day cream, come to that), by blending the drops into the cream in the palm of your hand before applying, and hey, presto! You'll look that bit healthier by morning. And now, the top-to-toe version: again, just add a few drops to your usual body cream, blend in the hand, and smooth in. The advantage is that you have the pleasure of using your favourite product, which is transformed into a gorgeous, realistic-looking self-tanner. And because it's as moisturising as your product is, there are generally no 'hard' edges to the tan, since lines and darker stains tend to occur where skin is dry.

Answer to a lazy self-tanner's prayers, frankly.
