Curious about this product??? So was I…and naturally I had to try it!!! This is the St. Tropez Gradual Tan In Shower. It is a gradual tanner that you can use…yes…in the shower. How convenient right??
So it retails for $25 which is surprisingly affordable compared to other St. Tropez products. So here are my thoughts….I like it but I don’t LOVE it.
Most people will probably actually hate this product. Let me tell you it is AWKWARD to use. I follow the instructions as so….hop in the shower and do my normal routine…cleanse my skin in the shower….turn the water off….apply the St. Tropez Gradual Tan lotion to my WET skin (don’t towel dry)…let the lotion sit for 3 minutes….then rinse off. Ok, I am not going to lie…standing naked and wet for 3 minutes is prettyyyy awkward and a little chilly.
Despite the awkwardness, this stuff WORKS! BUT (yes there is a but) it is definitely gradual! If you have medium to dark skin tones…this probably won’t even show up on you. I have a good base tan from summer and I can tell a gradual tan with this product. I am normally a fair skin girl. This product is going to be great in the winter (if you can get past the whole naked and wet thing).
The lasting power is….ok. I had to use this product every day for a good week to make sure I had the color I wanted built up. Now I use it every other sometimes every 2 days. It lasts but I have to keep up with using it…otherwise the color I have built up fades quickly.
Also, at first I was using a ton of product. I could see where this product wasn’t going to last me very long. But after that initial week of use, I don’t have to use as much product now that I have my color built up.
So I do like this product!!! Like I said before, most people will probably dislike this product but I like it as a gradual self tanner!
Hope you all have a great day! Thanks for visiting!
