Fantastic tanning product from the St Tropez range and a favourite with celebrities. Provides an even coverage tan that lasts for 5 days. Very easy to apply, and doesn’t leave streaks. Once the colour has settled after application it gives the skin a healthy look without looking to fake.

It contains the ingredient Aloe Vera which is good for the skin, and is non greasy. If you are using the medium/dark tone (which I use), then you only need to apply once as this will give the skin a deep enough colour. However the more you apply the darker you will be! Ideally, before application use a moisturiser (St Tropez also have there own branded moisturiser) so that your skin is moist and makes the tan spread more evenly. It comes in a “pump” action bottle, which is more hygienic and creates less mess once used. Once applied be sure to leave skin bare for at least 30 minutes (or as long as possible) so that it has time to settle, and doesn’t mark your clothes, and remember to wash hands with soap after use, otherwise it will stain and will be hard to remove straight away.

It’s reasonably priced, however is priced at the higher end of the market for tanning products, and can be purchased at Boots, Superdrug or any other major store. I have used a vast range of tanning products, but I always find myself coming back to this one because it’s so good and seems to last a long time. It doesn’t have much of a smell to it, just the Aloe Vera scent, which indicates it isn’t highly perfumed. I found the best time to apply was before bedtime, so that it has time to dry.

A tan without the sun, what more could you ask for!

Highly recommended.
