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.
I put this on my legs to get a bit of color and I have to say, it was terrible. The smell was overwhelming and very artificial. The color was really streaky and it was hard for me to get it even. I ended up washing it off, but honestly my legs still feel a bit sticky and the smell lingers. Definitely not my favorite product.1
Thanks to a great review of Divine Legs on Birchbox this fair skinned, blonde decided to give it a whirl. Never have I been so utterly thrilled and impressed with a leg bronzer. The smell is " divine" and the INSTANT color is incredibly real looking. I'm shocked. I expected good but not great. Blows all the other leg bronzers away.
Keep in mind that I did the application at my desk at work, rubbed it in, slipped on my heels and washed my hands. No streaking, no splotches. Just naturally looking bronzed GAMS! Thank you Birchbox for the prior write up and for always keeping me up with the latest and truly GREATEST products!! Mwaaah!
I loved the color and shimmer of this lotion. It looks great on legs, arms and especially the neck and décolletage. Unfortunately, I don't care much for the smell. It doesn't smell bad, but it is slightly heavier and more formal scent than I would generally prefer.4
As a redhead, I'm always trying to find a product that makes my skin look bronzed without going to the tanning bed. I love the look of this lotion. It went on well, didn't get streaky but the smell was overwhelming. But I have found thats the trade off with many self tanning lotions.4
This was a nice tanner. It looked natural to my surprise and I got a lot of compliments on how tan I looked. I like that it's a dark color when you apply it so you know where you have applied the lotion and what you have left to do.4
Color is PERFECT - Texture is PERFECT - glides on easily. But I do not care for the scent so I am sending it back. I was hoping it would not have that self tanner smell but apparently it's the coloring, not that self tanning compound, that has that odor. Disappointed. Would definitely try again if they improve the scent.1
I am not sure why companies feel the need to highly fragrance their products. Even if I liked this product, I wouldn't purchase it for this reason. The product itself is nice, goes on smooth and gave my legs a nice color with no stickiness. The smell overtook my apartment and car - even the cats scrunched up their noses when they walked past me. I would never be able to apply this and go to the office as everyone who works around me would smell it. And while I know that you probably shouldn't wear a product like this when working out, thought I would mention that it rubbed off on my yoga mat when I did pilates that night - with no sweating involved.2

I bought this in the summer to add some color to my pale legs. It didn't seem to add much color and I could not handle the strong scent it had.2
This is a nice product from Caudalie it does help cover my vericose veins and even the tone of my legs. The dark cream makes it easy to see the application of it but does take some getting used to. Try to be careful not to use when standing on a rug and I would wait to let it dry before dressing. Which it does quickly.3
