st tropez collection

Here is my current collection on the St Tropez front. I have been using fake tan for a number of years now, mainly using this brand and it has remained one of my favourite brands. I have also been for a few St Tropez spray tans in the past and they all turned out really nicely which initially made me have a look at their fake tans for home use. 

Just a few quick thoughts.. (from left to right)

Self tanning lotion -
This is a good self tanning lotion, lasts quite a while and gives a lovely natural colour without looking orange. It doesn't go streaky and dries pretty quickly. Not as good as the Fake Bake one though.

Everyday Body -
This is basically a moisturiser with a touch of self tanner. It works really well and it's the best option if you want a more natural colour. Doesn't streak at all and doesn't go patchy.

Everyday Gradual Tan Mousse -
This is also really good for a more natural look. It applies the most easy out of them all because it's a mousse and it's a clear colour. Though it's hard to tell where you are putting it because of the clear colour so can sometimes end up streaky.

Self Tan Bronzing Mousse - 
One of my all time favourite self tanner. It gives a really deep tan and looks very natural. It lasts about 2 days before going patchy, which is the only downside. You will have to exfoliate your skin before and after using this to avoid streaks. Click here for before and after pictures of this product.

Bronzing Mist -
Gives the deepest colour out of the lot. Looks gorgeous on the legs but does have a tendency to go slightly streaky. I would mainly recommend only using this on the legs as it goes a deep colour, but it still looks natural.

Self Tan Remover -
I mainly bought this because I thought it would remove the self tan like an exfoliator, later to realise it's more for taking excess product of your hands. It works great as that but I don't use it that often. If you have an issue with orange palms then this will work well for you. I might try using it for my arms though and see how its goes. Apparently you can use it up to four hours after application to remove self tan, but it's nothing impressive. 

Self Tan Bronzing Mousse -
This is overall the best all-rounder. If you are just starting to use self tan products or have never tried them before, you should definitely use this. It's very easy to use for first timers and gives a really natural tan as I said before. You can't go wrong!

Have you tried any St Tropez products?
