I need maintenance

Advantagesworks even on me

Disadvantagesnone I've found

"...tube that this is now Garnier Ambre Solaire. So this might be off putting for any that have seen any of the diabolical hair care adverts that they've put their name to. However, I advise to ignore all the awful things they produce and try this after sun. You never know, you might like it. They've very kindly included a telephone number on the container for if you have any questions. For those who feel they may need to know more before giving ..." Read review

More than just an after sun. Review with images

AdvantagesAftersun & fake tan all in one, cooling and hydrating.

DisadvantagesOrange nails and clothes.

"...holiday to Kos, Greece. I bought Garnier Amber Solaire moisturising protection spray and Garnier Amber Solaire After Sun hydrating tan maintainer. The packaging has changed slightly so I've included a picture of the actual one I bought. This after sun claims to "hydrate skin and intensify suntan". It is suitable for the face and body being both non-greasy and non-sticky. The back of the tube reads "Is hydrating tan maintainer right for me? Yes, ..." Read review

After Sun with a Hint of Orange

AdvantagesGood moisturising Properties

DisadvantagesMakes your hands go orange

"...lid that has a large Garnier Ambre Solaire logo at the top and can usually be found with their other sun products in Boots, Superdrug and other major retailers.

**Do YOU want to make it last longer ?"**

AdvantagesSubtle tan enhancement without being obvious

Disadvantagesnone

"...Sun Tan Maintainer.(Now known as Garnier Ambre Solaire) I purchased my 150ml tube from Sainsbury's, it was on a special offer at just 5.99 GBP. (normally retails at between 6.99 and 7.50). On the back of the tube it does ask if this product is right for you ? It advises that it is ideal if your skin needs rehydrating and if you want to prolong and 'intensify' your suntan. It has been especially devised to rebalance and rehydrate overheated ..." Read review

Maintain your tan & make it last longer.

AdvantagesMaintains your tan, Tan lasts longer, Hydrates skin

DisadvantagesFake tan smell, if you use too much you will look orange

"...~ The product is made by Garnier and is called After sun hydrating tan maintainer. I know many people have made the mistake of buying this and using it just as an after sun without realising that the product does contain self-tanning ingredients to keep your tan looking great. The product contains glycerol and vitamin E so soothe and hydrate your skin after being out in the skin. The product contains a low level of self-tanning ingredients which subtly ..." Read review

I am this brown honest!

Advantagessubtle tan and cheap.

Disadvantagescan streak if not applied properly

"I purchased this originally because it was on offer at superdrug for £3.49, which is half price and had read about products like this in magazines, which help you keep that healthy suntanned glow. I started using this product after my first days sunbathing and found it made my skin sooo smooth unfortunately I had applied a little too much because the next day I was a little streaky around the bottom of my feet and now realise that you should treat ..."

My tomato reducer!

Advantagestones down redness almost immediately, leaves you slightly tanned!

Disadvantagescan stain your hands! take care rubbing in to avoid streaks!

"I have been using this product for years now due to its great ability to do just as it says - after sun and tan maintainer! This is a great product and if you buy it around summer time, you can usually get some good offers on the price. This product is enriched with glycerol and vitamin E which is meant to prevent the skin peeling and leave it soft and supple. The product also contains small amounts of self tan to help maintain your natural ..." Read review

Get all creamed up for the sun with Ambre Solaire.

AdvantagesIt works.

DisadvantagesCant think of any.

"If you have fair skin and catch the sun easily like me then you need to try Ambre Solaire After sun Tan Maintainer. Normally I tend to go red and sometimes I burn. I have found over the past few years that Ambre Solaire after sun tan maintainer has not only given me a good looking tan over the redness but, it has also moisturised and soothed the areas that have been burned and dried out too. Before I started using this product did not really ..." Read review

Thought it was too good to be true

AdvantagesMoisturisers

DisadvantagesStinks!

"After returning from a fortnight in Greece with a lovely hard earned golden tan, my Mum suggested i borrow her tan maintainer. Sounded like a good idea, my tan would last longer and i wouldnt have to endure 100 degrees heat for it! The cream is slightly runny so be careful when you squeeze it out the bottle. And dont be tricked by the white colour of the cream, it turns brown after a while so make sure you wash your hands after applying it or you'll ..." Read review

Great maintainer!

AdvantagesVery moisturising

DisadvantagesSlightly greasy

"I always always always use this when throughout the year. In fact I stock up in case for some bizarre reason they decide to stop selling it!! This is a great moisturiser - I always use after having a bath or shower and not only does it make my skin super soft but it also gives me a lovely hint of colour. Great for the winter time. It goes on well - super smooth and a little goes a long way. Just remember to always wash your hands after use! I use ..." Read review

Better than self tanners!

AdvantagesRefreshing, has gradual self-tanner in it

DisadvantagesNone

"I bought this after sun ready for my holiday in the Caribbean, at the time though I had no idea it had self-tan in it. That was a pleasant surprise! I applied it one day when I got sunburnt and it was really cool and refreshing and the stinging and redness went away really quickly. After that incident I decided to apply this after sun/ self-tanner to myself in the evening instead of spending hours frying in the sun to get my tan. I fell in love ..." Read review

Beware

AdvantagesSmells good

Disadvantagesleaves you discoloured!

"It all started out pretty well. A tan maintainer? I thought this meant that it would maintain the tan that I had already had from hours (and hours!) of lying beside a pool in Tenerife. However this product in fact seemed to ADD to my colour in rather attractive streaks! At first I wondered what it was but this is the only thing that I put it down too. Although a good product which cools your skin down well, it not recommended to be put on in a rush ..." Read review

Keep Your Tan!

Advantagesnon streaky, dermatologically tested, doesn't go orange

Disadvantagesfiddly tube, have to leave to soak into skin before dressing

"Ambre Solaire After Sun Tan Maintainer - This is a wonder product! Not only is it a great after sun moisturiser but it contains a slight self tanning ingredient to prolong that 'just back from your hols' colour. It is easy to apply, it doesn't go streaky and more importantly, does not leave your skin the colour of a mandarin orange! The only down side is the product comes in a tube which makes it virtually impossible, without cutting the tube open, ..." Read review
