Ever since Angelina Jolie wore a side split dress on the red carpet, smooth, toned legs have been en vogue. Rather than putting in overtime at the gym, treat your legs with this skin-firming lotion from chic French brand Caudalie. The tinted formula imparts a subtle tan and has grown-up shimmer to mask flaws.
This was so brown and I had trouble spreading in on my ever-so-white legs! I think I got it smoothed in, but then my feet gave me trouble - very difficult not having brown on the tougher part of my foot. I guess it's not for me - maybe someone with more of a tan complexion could benefit from this, but then if already tan, what is the point?2
Finally tried this sample and thought I must be doing something wrong: went on super streaky and smells *terrible.* first instinct is to wash it off immediately.1
Even though I only wear this on my legs, the scent is so over powering it give me a headache. The scent is overly perfumy, akin to the powdery floral scent I associate with much more mature women. I have tried to wear it several times, and will have to find someone else who likes it as it causes a headache for me.1
The lotion is very dark at first which is nice to see where and how its being applied. The color definitely gave my skin a nice golden glow. The smell is terrible. My co-worker was able to smell it from across the room. Not pleasant. Very self tanner smelling.3
Great for night wear, but day wear is very tricky. I need two Coates for proper coverage and in the sun that looks bad on a light skinned girl. In dimmer light this product shines like it should. Great for club wear or night activity only IMO.3
I love that it was tinted. It was just the right amount to make my legs look nice for the weekend!4
I like this product but not sure if I'd purchase again. The scent is nice. The color streaks a lot, though. Requires care in application. It is best used with another lotion to apply more evenly.3
I wasn't a fan of this product. The first issue was the fact that it came in a packet as opposed to a bottle so it was messy to put on. I found it streaky and hard to rub in. The color was very unnatural with my skin tone and I found it darker than just a "subtle tan" like the description suggests. I also didn't care for the shimmer. The strong smell didn't really bother me though.1
I love the look and smell of this product and it is fine as long as you are going to be somewhere that you aren't in the rain. I used it when I went to a wedding and it was great, but it started raining as we were walking home and it started taking it off! Luckily only a little got on my dress, but it was a little scary and definitely would of been awkward if I was still at the event...3
This product is a definite must have! Works better than any self tanner and is very realistic. Sparkly even golden color. This also has an amazing smell! Just don't get stuck out in the rain! Easy off with water! Great product all around!5
