Self Tan Review- Garnier Ambre Solaire

Self Tanning is a must for me. I am naturally pale skinned and don't like sitting in the sun or using sun-beds. Self tanning is the most easy way to get a tinted glow.  Over the years I have tried lots of self tanning products some good and some bad. Ive tried three Garnier Ambre Solaire products over the past few months and here are my thoughts.

Garnier Ambre Solaire Bronzing Self Tan Tinted Gel 150ml
I love this tan, it is a perfect colour and looks very natural. It has a visible application, this helps me see exactly which parts I have missed or need to go over to get my desired look. This tan isn't streaky and I apply fake tan with a mitt. It has a slight smell but nothing overpowering like some self tans. This tan is quick drying and perfect if you are in a rush or having a spontaneous night out. This product costs £8.99.

Garnier Ambre Solaire Tinted Self Tan Velvety Gel 150ml
This Self Tan is also great. It isn't a visible application, in actual fact it is clear gel. I use the mitt to buff the tan into my skin in circular movements for best results. This tan provides a natural glow perfect for my skin tone . It also feels smooth and silky. This tan does take around three hours to develop. If you desire a darker look you can repeat the process the next day.  I would repurchase this product again. This product cost £10.69

Garnier Ambre Solaire Instant Bronzer Hydrating Gel Natural 150ml
This self tan gives you an instant bronzed look. This was my least favourite self tan product out of all three. The colour was just a tad to dark and I felt it didn't look as natural as the other two. This product was easy to apply and had a visible application. This product washes off with soap and water.  I don't think I would repurchase this product. This self tan costs £7.00.

Have you tried any of these products?

  1. Great review, these products look super great!:)

  2. I've actually used this before and love it <3 I think my favourite would have to be the Cocoa Brown tan tho! x

  3. I'm paled skinned too, but I've never used self tan, because I'm afraid it would look streaky or unnatural. The first 2 products sound good though!
