I live in Canada, but I hate the cold. All winter I dream of the sun and warm weather and one thing that keeps be smiling is seeing a nice sun kissed glow on my skin.
I have tried quite a few self tanners and I haven't always been a fan. Some are so orange in colour that I just can't stand it, orange is not the look I am trying to go for here. Some are way to gradual that I don't really see results. Also. I don't ever do spray tan and not because I'm against them or anything, I just a) don't have the time and b) don't really want to spend the money on them. If you know me, you know that when it comes to beauty, if I can do it myself...I do!
I have heard so much about St.Tropez, that I had to try it. I first bought the foam. Did not work for me. I am not a professional so I always felt it was too orange looking and streaky. I'm a mom of two, I don't have a ton of time to apply and let dry. BUT then I discovered their Gradual Tan Lotion! yay! Finally, I have found the perfect gradual self tanner for me.
Why do I love it so much? Well, Its super easy to use. Because its a lotion, it goes on smooth and easily. If I miss a spot... you would never know. You can purchase a glove for application, but I prefer to use my hands. I feel that I can really rub it in, like I would a body lotion easier than with the glove. Down fall, if I don't wash it off right away, my palms are a tad orange. If I was using this more regularly, than I would maybe invest in the glove. The colour is probably my favourite part of it. Its got such a nice tint to it, which I haven't found with any other tanners. it dries pretty quickly, so if I'm going out, I apply it before I start getting ready and by the time I'm ready to go, I'm totally dry. One thing I really don't like about it though, is the potent smell. Its so strong that I can almost smell it the day after as well. No one has ever noticed or said anything so it might just be me, but the smell is definitely stronger than some of the others that I have tried.
So if your looking for a self tanner, you should try this one for sure. At only $38 its worth it!
