St Tropez Gradual Tan Classic Everyday Body Lotion ~ Review

Long gone are the days of my youth where I would slather myself in oil and bask in the sun chasing the perfect tan. What was I thinking? Nowadays, I bathe in sunscreen and opt for self tanners to achieve a (healthy) summer glow.

St Tropez Gradual Tan Classic Everyday Body Lotion is described as an everyday, gradual tanning lotion that will leave your skin hydrated for up to 48hrs. It is available in two shades (light/medium and medium/dark) and boasts that it will give you a beautiful glow in a matter of days. I received the medium/dark shade and dove right in; after thoroughly exfoliating first of course!

I squeezed a quarter sized amount into my palm and noticed two things. It didn't reek of DHA and it was white, like your standard body lotion. The texture was perfect being neither too thick or thin and it applied like a dream. Since it's white and not tinted I found myself really paying attention to where I was applying it. This isn't a bad thing!

My first application of St Tropez Gradual Tan Classic Everyday Body Lotion was in the evening, just before bedtime. When I awoke in the morning I noticed that I had quite the healthy glow - close to two shades deeper than my natural colour! I caught a slight whiff of DHA but it wasn't overpowering and it washed away after my shower. Most impressive was that my sheets weren't stained!

After my shower I applied another layer of St Tropez Gradual Tan Classic Everyday Body Lotion. Within a few hours I noticed a deepening of my tan. I also noticed that I overdid it near my wrists so I gently exfoliated them so it wasn't as noticeable.

After two applications, I was satisfied with my results so I stopped applying it. After 5 days I decided it might be a good idea to exfoliate again. I was expecting my tan to fade but it didn't; it looked better!

Saying I'm impressed with St Tropez Gradual Tan Classic Everyday Body Lotion would be an understatement. Its been over 2 weeks and my tan still looks amazing. It looks natural, isn't streaky and fades evenly (although it hasn't really faded much). I'm obsessed!

You can find St Tropez at Shoppers Drug Mart &, Murale, London Drugs &, Hudson's Bay &, Uniprix and Nordstrom
