Lol at me.
I bought St. Tropez Tinted Self-Tanning Lotion last summer and I regretted it so badly. I could not make it work for me, that freaking blackish lotion!
I used to apply it directly on my body and the streaks it left me made me appear like a zebra. NO. FUN.
Then I read you mix it with your body lotion… Lame.
That helped. Really. So much.
Now, here is what I do:
I put on the palm of my hand like 4 pumps of my daily lotion, any inexpensive one serves; I recommend you use some with a pleasant scent. And then I mix it with a couple of pumps of St. Tropez lotion. This is enough for each leg,
And, I am instantly tanned! See? You never read enough before learning how to use a beauty product…
The shade it gives to my skin is really natural, considering I am quite pale and on the yellowish undertone.
It does not smell as badly as the rest of fake tanners I have been using. I would say it does not seem to have any smell at all, and I am really sensitive regarding smells.
There is no orange or brownish shade, but a nice tanned colour that seems totally natural. I exfoliate my skin properly on the day before applying this so there is no streaks or patches. I have found that the tan lasts for a couple of days before fading away, so, applying it 3 times per week ensures you have a wonderful tan throughout all the year.
You can graduate the colour by changing the amounts of body lotion you mix it with. Obviously, the more body lotion you use, the lighter the colour, and the less chances of error.
Price. I bough it mine online (Hq Hair) and it is not cheap at all.
Note. Apparently, the packaging has recently changed, and now it is called St Tropez Bronzing Lotion. Description by St Tropez:
