REVIEW: ST. TROPEZ SELF TAN DARK RANGE





Tan Enhancing Body Polish

Step 1: Prepare skin 24 hours before tanning with an all over application of St. Tropez Body Polish.


Tan Enhancing Body Moisturizer

Step 2: Immediately before tanning apply St. Tropez Body Moisturizer to any dry areas  such as elbows, knees, ankles, feet & hands to protect.


Step 3: To have an evenly and smooth tan effect a Applicator Mitt is needed. I used a mitt from a drugstore for less than 1€. Works too! 
So before applying the Mousse, Lotion or Spray pump/spray a small amount to the mitt and apply to body.


St. Tropez Bronzing Mousse


Step 4 - Mousse: Before using the St. Tropez Bronzing Mousse protect light areas at eyebrows and hairline with extra Moisturizer.
Pump a velvety mousse into a mitt and smooth from top to toe, making sure you're well covered.
Once you've got even coverage wait until touch-dry before getting dressed.  Avoid getting wet or exercise for at least 4 hours, leave on 8 hours or more for best results.

Finally, shower off to reveal a perfectly golden, natural looking tan. To maintan, re-apply a couple of times a weeks (preferable 2 times), nourish daily with St. Tropez Body Moisturizer and smooth with regular exfoliation for ultimate results.

Step 4 - Spray: Before using the St. Tropez Bronzing Spray protect light areas at eyebrows and hairline with extra Moisturizer.
Then, hold the nozzle about "6 away from your skin and spray all over. Blend with your applicator mitt if necessary to make sure you're covered as it's only missed areas that can look patchy. 
For the face - spray onto a mitt and cover the whole face with it.

Note: I recommend a patch test that is carried out at least 24 hours prior to use. If there are any adverse reactions do not continue to use. Don't apply to broken, irritated or sensitive skin and stop using if your skin becomes irritated.

The bottom line is that ..
 Clearly, the Mousse, Lotion or Spray worked and got me a much more golden glow that I had before but if you are seeking for a more intensivly effective glow that last longer I would recommend the Mousse and Lotion as they tend to be much more intensive in the outcome than the Spray does.

When it comes to the application the Spray was the easiest. You'll probably need another person to help you with covering your back but in my opinion it still was the easiest to apply.

To apply the Mousse and Lotion takes more time but it has a better result at the end of the day.

All three worked for me but they all have they pros and cons so it's up to you if you want a quick application or a much more intensive glow that last longer.
