If you know me or have been reading this blog for some time, you know I’m not a huge fan of tanning. I stick to my gradual lotions that make my pale skin achieve a slight glow with a subtle tan and that’s that, ‘proper’ tanning products never get anywhere near my skin. However when I heard of St Tropez’s latest offering, the In Shower Tan, it intrigued me and seemed super easy, perfect for a tanning newbie like myself. I nearly bought the full size version a couple of weeks back however now I’m glad I waited as InStyle magazine have a 50ml version free with their August issue…
The next day, I applied it again. Unfortunately, there was still not a lot of colour to my skin, I didn’t look pasty pale like I normally would so there was definitely a hint of something but nowhere near a ‘tan’. So it’s safe to say you need to apply this for a fair few days in order to get a tan. I’m not overly impressed with how long this takes, it’s very gradual and my Dove Summer Glow Gradual Tanning Lotion is a lot quicker than this and the next day you have quite a lot of colour to your skin with it.
So I would definitely not recommend this to anyone who wants a tan quickly, it will not happen with this. But if you’re like me, pale and would like a hint of something and don’t mind applying this a few days in a row then this is perfect for you. I’m yet to try this out for more than 2 days in a row but I’m going to finish this 50ml up and see what happens and how dark my skin will go, I’ll then decide whether or not it’s worth purchasing the 200ml version.
If you want to try out the St Tropez In Shower Tan, go pick up a copy of this month’s InStyle. A great way to try out this product rather than paying full price and possibly not getting along with it and never using it again.
Have you tried the St Tropez In Shower Tan? What were the results like for you?
