Hey guys! I absolutely love being tan but I gave up on tanning beds because skin cancer runs in my family. I’ve even done the occasional spray tan and I’m usually fine with that but there’s so much upkeep and it’s pretty expensive. Lately, I have been reading all about the St. Tropez tanning line and how great it is so I wanted to try it out for myself and see if it lives up to the hype. It totally does!!
There is definitely still some maintenance and upkeep with self tanners but St. Tropez is pretty easy. First and foremost, make sure you exfoliate the day before you apply your self tanner. I recommend once a week at least. Exfoliating removes all of your dead skin and creates a clean slate for your tan to set. Trust me, exfoliating is essential in creating a nice even tan.
If you’re using the St. Tropez mousse, then you definitely want the mitt. The mitt helps you apply the self-tanner (use circular motions) and prevents your hands from getting all stained and sticky. Lastly, if you are using the exact product that I have been using, keep in mind that it is a gradual tanner that develops over 8 hours. You will notice a difference pretty quickly but it is not an instant tan. I actually like the one minute gradual tanner because you can shower after one minute and you’re not walking around for 8 hours after you’ve just applied a self tanner. If you are looking for a nice natural and healthy looking tan then I truly think St. Tropez is the way to go. I hope you all have a great weekend!
