Hello, hello! Happy Thursday everyone. I hope your week is going by fast and I also hope you have good weekend plans! We are going to a hockey game for my husbands birthday so I’m really excited for a night out! So something that I need in the winter is a good faux tanner. I have given up the tanning beds and so I rely on spray tans and at-home tanning products. My favorite at-home tanning products are by St Tropez, if you haven’t tried them yet, what are you waiting for!? They are amazing. I just repurchased my two favorite products again so I thought I’d share them and why I love them.
In-Shower Gradual Tan
This is a really innovative product and I’m obsessed. At first, the thought of it was weird to me but I pushed through those first opinions lol. You put this on after cleansing your skin/using your body wash. So after washing, and I recommend doing so with a loofah, you turn the shower off and apply this lotion all over your body the rinse your hands. I put it on my face for about half the time so about 1-2 minutes. After leaving it on for 3 minutes you pop the shower back on and rinse it off. After rinsing with just warm water, get out and lightly dry yourself off. The gel-like creamy lotion has a natural tanning agent that starts working after your shower and looks so natural! This is a gradual tan and isn’t going to make you look like you just came back from the islands but will take away the ghostly glow you had before. Not to mention my skin is so soft after using it because it has sweet almond oil.
*Note: I use this one about every 2-3 days. I have the shade light, they also have this in shade medium.
1-Hour Express Mousse
This is my once a week or special occasion go-to. I highly recommend using the mitt to apply this and make sure you exfoliate first and also moisturize any areas prone to dryness like elbows/knees/ankles. I use one pump of the mousse at a time and work my way up in small sections from my feet up. I like that you control the color with this one and you just rinse it off after either one, two, or three hours. I always leave it on for the full three hours to get the darkest tan.
*Note: I use the original shade, they also have a dark shade. I always leave it on for the full three hours to get the darkest tan. The color usually lasts about 5-7 days. I took some pics to show the color.
BEFORE AFTER 3 HOURS AFTER RINSING
I can’t stress enough how natural the color is from these products. Another huge like game-changer for me is that they smell so good, they don’t smell like fake tan at all. This is not a sponsored post, I’m just obsessed.
I hope you have a great day and weekend!
