I love St Tropez for my faux glow...somehow,even with my alabaster white hue,St Tropez never steers me wrong (never an "Oompa Loompa" to be seen)...and this was no exception.
St Tropez eliminates the need to spend your hard earned coin on spray tans by giving you the same formula a salon uses at home...no muss,no fuss,no standing naked in front of strangers (i don't care how body positive you are...THAT'S TERRIFYING) and no hassles of appointment times or parking etc.The huge plus is the 360° nozzle on this beautiful,tropical blue tin....that means an easy to apply mist,that delivers a convenient all over, streak-free finish....perfect for those hard to reach areas,that doesn't have that massive hit of "tell tale" faux glow smell (rather,there is a soft,fresh kind of scent).As this tan includes a self-bronzer,you can instantly tell where you have tanned ,as well as being able to step out looking tanned if you have to "tan and dash" post treatment.If you ARE waiting for the glow to develop,this is where you have full control over how dark you go....apply to bod,
shower after one hour for a sunkissed glow, leave on for two for a medium tan, or wait three hours for a rich, deep bronze that lasts for about 7 days (with care).And when it does fade,it fades like a real tan....not patchy.I thoroughly recommend this tanner...get it before it leaves our shores for good (as is apparently happening).
TIP:Care for your tan post use by following a few simple rules:Do not use harsh shower mits on the tan (so no loofahs and no rough scrubbing with a shower puff),moisturise daily (to maintain hydration),no harsh cleansers and ONLY exfoliate to remove fading tan.
This is one of the best, when it comes to fake tans. It gives a believeable tan in an hour! What I love most about this product is, it’s tinted, so not only do you get an instant bronze glow when you apply it, but you can see what you are doing and where you have applied the product. It’s fantastic that it’s 100% natural DHA, that it contains no parabens, sulfates and phthalates too.
It gives me a streak free golden tan every time I use it. I have quite pale skin and this does not give me an orange fake look.
It has a fake tan smell when your applying it, but to me this seems to fade out quite quickly as it dries on the skin.
It may seem like a lot to pay for a fake tan but if your considering getting a spray tan, this is reasonable in comparison, especially when the colour develops so quickly.
I would recommend this tanning product to anyone that is new at fake tanning or is pressed for time, as it’s easy to apply because of its tint, and you don’t have to wait impatiently for hours for the colour to develop.
St Tropez was my first introduction to tanning mouses and I'm so so glad that we were introduced. Out of all of St Tropez's formulas, I love this one the best as I hate having to sit around waiting for my tan to develop so the express formula works perfectly for me! After I've exfoliated and shaved, I apply this with a tanning mitt all over, and do a double layer on my legs (they are lily white so need some extra attention), air myself in the bathroom for a few minutes, chuck on a dress and wait approx an hour and a half before I head to the shower and wash it off. It is seriously soooo good, after washing it off the colour starts to develop within a few hours and within 24 hours I am the perfect shade of bronze! I find that it fades really nicely on me and I don't ever look patchy. I also love this formula as you can choose how dark you want to go with how long you leave it on.. 1 hr light, 2 hr med, 3 hr dark! The smell is your average tan smell but because you don't have to leave it on long its not overpowering.
The express tan from St. Tropez is the best fake tan I have ever used - this is for a number of reasons!
- I have very fair skin. I find that the St. Tropez fake tan colour does not make my fair skin look orange (as some other cheaper brands do). It also turns my skin a lovely sun-kissed colour without looking overly "fake"
- The fact that the mousse contains a bronzer means I know exactly where I have applied it on my body - this means no funny white gaps where I have missed a spot!
- I LOVE the fact that this product is express and fast-acting. This is probably the best thing about this product. I don't have to sleep in the tan overnight. I just pop it on after work when I get home from the office, and wash it off a few hours later before bed. I don't go to bed sticky, smelly and uncomfortable. I don't ruin the bedsheets. I just wake up in the morning a glorious bronzed goddess!
Here is a tip - if you find the St. Tropez tans are not deep enough in colour for you, apply a second layer 20 mins after you've done your first layer. The layers blend beautifully without causing orange elbows/knees/ankles. You just end up with a deeper natural colour!
I would highly recommend this product to those who hate sleeping in a fake tan overnight, and who are after a very natural colour.
Love St. Tropez, a great natural, even looking tan from this product. Not too sticky but you should use a mitt with it as it has a tendency to build up. Nice tan, fairly easy to use, I only left it on for an hour as I am fair and it turned out great. I would definitely recommend to a friend!
Absolutely obsessed over this! After I shower i put this on for an amazing sunkissed glow, this product does not go streaky on you and has a beautiful deep bronze finished. My all time favourite product i have all my friends obsessed with it aswell! Definitely recommend for any one!
