There is nothing worse than slathering on tanning lotion, only to discover later that you have uneven, stripy dark spots marking your arms and legs. And you don't want to look orange either.
You never ever have to worry about that with St. Tropez. It is my favourite sunless tanning line that I've tried so far (from the first time I tried it back in 2010, to their phenomenal mousse and then gel) because it is mistake proof and no matter how many times you apply it, the result is always flawless skin that looks naturally tan (with the added bonus of deep moisturizers and a delicious, swoon-worthy scent).
And this isn't an easy feat, especially on a pale gal like myself, but St. Tropez excels in the field. So I wasn't the least bit surprised at the stunning results I got from one of their newest products, St. Tropez Gradual Tan Tinted Body Lotion.
The first thing you'll notice is the dry silky texture as it goes on. When is the last time that you applied a lotion that wasn't wet? It feels incredible - soft, powdery and oh-so-feminine. And thanks to the introduction of a new hydrating complex Hydraglow, you can actually skip your moisturizers and body lotions because this is a superior all-in-one.
Next you'll see that it delivers just a hint of colour upon application but over time (from a few minutes to a few hours) you get this illumination (read: it blurs out all your imperfections as effectively as the best insta filters) and deepened glow that is more sun kissed and bronzed than instant brown (you can build up the colour as much or as little as you like - I go subtle in the daytime and then often amp it up after office hours). So by the time lunch rolls around, you have totally tan limbs that your friends will believe could only come from sun-worshipping every weekend.
And you don't have stand around for 5-10 minutes waiting for it to set in and dry like other self-tanners. This one is good to go in a minute and don't worry - you can wear your white bra, white dress and get into your white covered bed right away without having to worry about stains and transfers.
Remember that delicious, swoon-worthy scent I was telling you about? It's so beautiful, you'll wish it came in a perfume. Well, it kind of does. Working with one of the world’s leading fragrance houses - Givaudan - St. Tropez Gradual Tan Tinted Body Lotion now doesn't just have the scent of a botanical garden, this bouquet has mood enhancers built right in. No wonder I can't wait to put it on every morning.
I am forever be a St. Tropez girl and now I've added St. Tropez Gradual Tan Tinted Body Lotion to my eternal must-have list. So get yourself some St. Tropez Gradual Tan Tinted Body Lotion too. You can thank me later.
