Well boy am I glad I didn’t purchase the big bottle first. If any of you are familiar with ST.TROPEZ they sell self tanning products. In a previous post I reviewed their original tanning mouse and I mentioned at the end that I wanted to try this product right here. Last Monday I went to Sephora and I was browsing through ST.TROPEZ and I noticed that the bigger bottle of this had 2 left on the shelf so I figured hey maybe it’s a good product. I didn’t want to spend the money on that day, but as I was leaving I saw they had the travel size of the medium/ dark bottle so I figured might as well spend the $10 and try it out.
What it’s supposed to do:
The most convenient way to tan—simply apply in shower and rinse in just three minutes. Great for all skintones and types, it delivers a natural-looking, bronze glow and extreme moisture without streaking or transferring onto clothing. It is made with a 100 percent natural DHA and infused with sweet almond oil to nourish the skin for a smooth, soft, hydrated finish. Use daily to gradually build an intense tan.
What it actually does:
This product won Allure Best of Beauty award, not sure how because I used it for 8 straight days and didn’t see a dramatic difference …if any.It gave me a subtle tan which isn’t all that noticeable. I did purchase the travel size bottle so it only lasted me up until last night. I was really hoping to see a difference within 3 days but I didn’t and I’m disappointed because the idea is there, its not messy, doesn’t leave streak marks, smells good. If it worked like it says it does this product would of been a staple in everyones shower.
On Sephora it only got 3.2 out of 5 stars and the reviews are mixed. On the bottle it says to stay in the shower for 3 minutes (which I did). I would leave the water running, but I stepped to the side so I wouldn’t get wet. As I read a review it says that didn’t make sense because than it couldn’t dry, and that this girl learned that in fact you do have to get out of the shower for 3 minutes then rinse off. Now knowing that maybe I would of gotten more out of this product by doing it that way. Just thought I would let you all know how it worked, definitely purchase the travel size if you are looking to try it out first. I may or may not repurchase, if I do I’ll certainly try it while standing outside of the shower and see if that makes a difference.
Until next time xoxo
