“I use the St. Tropez Self-Tan Gradual Tan Everyday Body Med-Dark and the Gradual Tan Everyday Face Med-Dark two to three times a month. Both are super moisturizing while giving a nice, natural-looking glow. Because the Gradual Tan Everyday line includes moisturizers with a touch of self-tan, there is little to no potential for streaks or an uneven tan. What I love most is that this line includes a product made specifically for the face, easy to use (just like you would apply your face cream) and subtle colour. After all, your face should match the rest of your body, no?.”

What it is:
A gradual self-tanner that will build up a gorgeous, golden glow over time. This enriched, nourishing body moisturizer cleverly combines serious skin care benefits with a healthy touch of bronze
What it does:
Infused with soothing Aloe Vera, this lotion will help give you smoother, skin while building a gradual golden tan, every day. The innovative Aromaguard™ fragrance technology eliminates the tell-tale self tan aroma by a minimum of 70% and instead gives a beautiful subtle, yet refreshing fragrance.
How to use it:
Exfoliate with St. Tropez Body Polish in the shower or bath before massaging this luxurious lotion in from toe to top. Don’t worry if you go over the same area twice, it’s only missed areas that’ll look uneven. Wait for the lotion to be absorbed before getting dressed and remember to wash the palms of your hands and in between your fingers after use. Use daily for a subtle golden boost.
*It is recommended that a patch test is carried out at least 24 hours prior to use. If there are any adverse reactions do not continue to use. Don’t apply to broken, irritated or sensitive skin and stop using if your skin becomes irritated.
**This product does not contain a sunscreen and does not protect against sunburn. Repeated exposure of unprotected skin while tanning may increase the risk of skin aging, skin cancer and other harmful effects to the skin even if you do not burn.
Dihydroxyacetone (or DHA for short): is a colourless sugar that interacts with the amino acids in the surface layer of the skin to produce a temporary colour change.
Erythrulose: A naturally moisturising ingredient derived from raspberries, that works in the same way as DHA but it develops more slowly, giving you a smoother colour that lasts longer and fades more evenly.
Aloe Vera: The vitamin C and E present in Aloe Vera can help to improve skin`s natural firmness and keep skin hydrated.
What else you need to know:
None of the active ingredients in St. Tropez have any known toxicity.
Generally, a St. Tropez self tan will last between 2-10 days, depending on your skin type and how you care for it.
What is the difference between Self-Tan and Gradual Tan?
Self tan products provide a medium to full strength shade. It is applied to the skin and left to develop for a period of time. The colour will develop for approximately 8 hours and will last 2 – 10 days depending on skin type and how you care for your tan. A gradual tan is a gentle tan that can be built up to a medium to full strength shade when applied over a period of time.
No Stinky Smell:
St. Tropez is different from all other self-tanning products because they have developed Aromaguard™, a revolutionary new fragrance technology, that replaces that tell-tale self tan aroma (by a minimum of 70%) with a soft, light, fresh-scented fragrance.
