Self tanning is not without its difficulties, yes I want a golden and natural tan but do I really want to spend an evening buffing and moisturising, to end up orange and dare I say streaky. In a word no. Well what if there was a gentle gradual tanner that not only featured a guide colour but also perfecting technology too? Say hello to St.Tropez Everyday Tinted Body Lotion, your summer secret weapon to perfectly bronzed and softened skin.
St.Tropez Everyday Tinted Body Lotion is just that, a light golden tinged everyday gradual self tanning product; the idea is that much like any gradual tanning products you apply St.Tropez Everyday Tinted Body Lotion as frequently as you feel necessary to build a natural hint of colour with ease. The guide colour gently warms the skin but also ensure flawless application to ensure that you do not miss any areas without looking muddy nor having a tell-tale musty self tan fragrance - perfect for everyday wear. If that is not enough it also features an optical blurring quality - think of it as a primer for your body (it has a similar gel/silicone like texture) to even and smooth the skin. If only it would apply itself to my back, I'd all but marry it.

Now you have the general concept behind St.Tropez Everyday Tinted Body Lotion let me share my experience thus far. St.Tropez Everyday Tinted Body Lotion has a fairly thick and as mentioned before gel texture that is slightly silicone based, as such it glides onto the skin and dries very quickly too. It is moisturising, very delicate in scent and comfortable to wear i.e not at all greasy nor dehydrating towards the skin. Much like most gradual tanners you do have to apply St.Tropez Everyday Tinted Body Lotion fairly regularly to garner the best results - I recommend applying daily until you reach your desired golden hue, and then maintaining the colour with a quick top up every three nights or so.
I'm sure it goes without saying that self tanners aren't a one size fits all type of product - why else would we have light, medium and dark options - and as such, I would recommend St.Tropez Everyday Tinted Body Lotion for light to medium complexions if looking to bronze the skin, but suitable for all if looking to perfect the skin. If you struggle with self tanner be it with application or a believable end result, this is the product you have been waiting for.
