I have used many self tanning products over the years, but when I can afford it i always buy a tube of Christian Dior. I buy the tube for the body and use it on my face too. It works out cheaper than buying both. It is a sheer gel type formulation, you can see where it has been applied which makes it much easier to avoid streeks. It turns into lovely golden tan, not orangey like many. It usually lasts about a week or so. A little goes a long way and a tube lasts a good time. I like the smell too, none of that nasty fake tan smell at all. It is the only self tan that I have used on my face that doesn't block my pores. The packaging is really classy and the tube is a good size for travel etc. This is well worth the treat and worth every penny for the healthy glow you get!
