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.
It's darker than I thought (I think the bottle is a clear, and that bronze color is the actual product), and it smells like self-tanner. I wouldn't buy it2
Wasn't thrilled with this bronzer. I was expecting something crazy, but it was just another streaky bronzer that I have used a million times. Left my legs blotchy, even after being SURE that everything was rubbed in evenly.2
It seems like a good product, and my experience with Caudalie is that they are good products for sensitive skin. It seems like it gives a good color, but the way the product was packaged and how little there was, it was hard to tell.3
I really liked the color that the product left me with but you need to be really careful with the streaking that it may cause. I used a make up remover towel after it dried to fix any mistakes and then it looked great.2
I feel like this product should have better reviews. I loved it. I am a "stay out of the sun at all costs" kind of girl, so I loved the soft glow this gave me. This is not a product I'd use if it was real hot outside and I knew I'd be spending time outdoors.4
Nice scent. There was no funky smell to this product. In the past I have had to apply self tanner at night wash it off in morning to avoid that weird smell. We ALL know when someone has put that kind of product on. This product washes off and does not stay on after the shower. It did not rub off on my clothes. You know when you put on a skirt and think- OH MY- I could use a little color. This is instant tint without the smell or orange tone. The product went on smooth, no streaks without the orange. I am use to the application process of self tanners. Work it in a circular motion and again work it in. This product is not for you if you are trying gain multiple shades of darkness. This is just to add a hint of color in an instant. Just enough to make my pale legs look sun-kissed and not freakishly baked. It blurred some of my imperfection too. Just a peak of color.4
I had high hopes for this product, and I guess looking back a week later, it worked alright. I can never get past the smell of these products, and this one was no better. Although I liked the fact that it wasn't permanent, and would wash off with water, that is a problem on a summer's evening in Atlanta....if the rain doesn't get you, the sweat will. It made it blotchy. So that, along with the smell, I have to say no, it's not for me. Thank you for trying, Birchbox.3
I wasn't in love. I wasn't in hate. It made my legs darker. The sample package made it awkward to dispense the lotion and put it on without getting everything all sticky and discolored.3
This lotion is great! It went on super easy, dried quickly (don't worry about it getting everywhere because it dries in seconds,) and created an awesome tan. I'm fair skin, and this worked perfectly!
I have a very sensitive nose, so I think the scent is a little on the strong side, but it is a light an elegant scent. I'm definitely purchasing the full bottle - this is great.
This was horrible product for me. I have fair skin, so something with an intense color like this would made my skin very "Jersey Shore" and streaky. I wouldn't recommended it to anyone that doesn't already tan . It was light weight and smooth, but instead of that golden shimmer it promised I looked dirty.1
