Back in the day, before we knew (or cared) about how bad the sun was for our skin, we’d spend hours lying out on the beach, hoping to get that perfect glow. Then when tanning beds became all the rage, we shifted to that. Booking monthly (sometimes even weekly) appointments so we could lie in a UV radiation bed that was quite possibly teeming with germs is not something we’re proud of. Of course, spray tans–which are presumably the least harmful of the three–have taken hold for the last little while, but they get so messy and sometimes things don’t go as planned.
Thankfully, now you don’t have to worry about damaging your skin and making multiple spray tan appointments, because St. Tropez has got your back (and front). The company has an in shower gradual tanning lotion that’s about to rock your socks off. All you have to do is lather an even amount of the product on clean wet skin, wait three minutes and then rinse it off with warm water. Voila, you should have a nice natural bronze glow right about now. If you want to take it to the next level i.e. get a deeper tan, just leave it on for a few more minutes (maxing out at 5 mins. ’cause you don’t want things to get out of hand, right?).
According to St. Tropez, the lotion offers extreme moisture to your skin without streaking or transferring onto clothing. Phew! Is this a godsend or what?
Who it’s for:
That person who wants to look like they just got back from a tropical island vacation, without the sun damage.
