Now that it’s winter and we’re getting less and less time in the sun, I wanted to share a product that keeps me bronze all year long. St. Tropez Bronzing Mousse is hands down the best self tanner I have ever tried. I’ve experimented with so many over the years, but nothing is as simple or as natural as St. Tropez.
Since this product is a mousse texture, it’s super lightweight and easy to apply. Lotions and creams can tend to be too thick and you could end up putting too much on. The mousse is a dark greenish brown color, so you can see exactly where you’re applying the tan. A lot of self tanners blend to be transparent at first and you could end up going over the same spot more than once. Being able to see the mousse, and being able to easily distribute it on your body avoids over application and streaky patches. Take note of how many pumps of product you use on a certain area so that the tan is even on the other side. St. Tropez makes the application process even easier by selling a separate tanning glove which ensures a well blended tan and clean hands. The worst is applying a self tanner and waking up with insane looking hands!
This product isn’t sticky, won’t transfer on your bed sheets, and can be washed off after 4 hours. As your tan develops and you wash off the initial layer, you’ll be able to see what the tan actually looks like.
