Whether you have a hot date for Valentine’s or just want to make all the guys wish you were their date you can’t go wrong with gorgeous bronze skin. I am super fair and am very careful about being safe in the sun, but that doesn’t mean I have to settle for pasty skin in winter.
I have always been a fan of the St Tropez self tanning line, simply put they make great products that work well and look even better. I was excited to try their new Self Tan Express Bronzing Mouse, a self tan that takes only 1-3 hours to set? Sold.
The mousse is a really lightweight foam that is easy to apply and because it’s tinted you can make sure to apply nice and evenly. And one of my favorite things, no weird self tanner smell. Like none at all, not even a hint. I applied the mousse with the tan applicator mitt and let it do it’s thing for 3 hours. Then a quick hop in the shower to rinse of the color guide layer and done. After the first three hours my skin had a night light glow and by 8 hours my color had developed into a beautiful bronze shade. I love how quick, easy and mess free this self tanner is.
This photo doesn’t do the bronze color justice. But it did wonders for my pale, dull winter skin and gave it a healthy natural looking glow.
ST. TROPEZ SELF TAN EXPRESS BRONZING MOUSSE $44
NEW Our most advanced no-fuss formula yet, for a light sunkissed glow in just 1 hour or leave on for up to 3 hours for a deep, dark bronze.
Customize your tan by choosing when to shower:
1 Hour Development = Healthy Glow
2 Hours Development = Golden Bronze
3 Hours Development = Dark Tan
Pump the mousse onto the Applicator Mitt and apply in light sweeping motions, starting from your legs and working your way up. Once the whole body is covered, wait until touch dry before getting dressed.
Wait 1, 2 or 3 hours depending on your desired shade, then rinse off the tinted guide colour with warm water only. After showering, skin will have a light colour but the self tan actives will continue to work for up to 8 hours, developing and deepening into your chosen shade of tan that lasts for days.
Longer than 3 hours wear is not recommended. Tanning time and developed colour may vary.
