I have to begin by thanking St Tropez for igniting my now huge obsession with fake tan! It was the
first GOOD product that I ever used, and I have been hooked ever since.
If you are new to fake tan or if you’re interested but unsure about what to use, I would strongly recommend St Tropez. It is easily one of the best, and most reliable tanning brands available.
So now let’s focus on one of their fabulous products – specifically the St. Tropez Self Tan Dark Bronzing Mousse. I was not surprised to be completely blown away by this product. Old faithful came through again! This is their darkest, most intense colour yet and wow does it look good. Be sure not to let the words dark and intense scare you – when using St Tropez, you are always in safe hands.
Even if you are not after a really deep tan, this product, whilst being dark and intense, adapts to your skin tone. The ultra-absorbent hydrating lotion contains extra skin conditioners and protective ingredients, to provide an even, streak-free bronze finish, that tailors completely to you.
This ultimately makes it pretty much impossible to tell that you are wearing any fake tan at all. I cannot stress enough how natural this product looks. The innovative melanin technology ensures a completely realistic finish.
Whilst applying the product I was very happy to see that the liquid was dark. I definitely prefer this as you can see it going on, making it more manageable! It is a lovely, slightly thick consistency that makes it very easy to smooth onto your skin with an Applicator Mitt.
I recommend leaving it on for about 8 hours. In my opinion, it is always best to do the application before bed time and sleeping in loose fitting, dark clothes, before showering off the product in the morning. This tan drys almost instantly and your skin will feel very smooth and soft, so sleeping in it is no problem at all.
After showering you will be left with a rich, natural, even tan that will last about a week. St Tropez recommend exfoliating twice a week for an even fade, and moisturising daily for optimal results! But we all do that anyway don’t we!?
This is a brilliant fake tan, and in my opinion has the most natural results of all of the tans that I have reviewed to date. At around £30 for a 200ml bottle, I think it is worth every penny! Oh and Kate Moss loves it too…need anymore convincing?
