It's not often a product is released that makes me go
'Finally! Just what we've been waiting for'
but when St Tropez released the in-shower tan last summer I was really excited to try it out as soon as I could.
Claiming to give you a tan while you shower it sounded like St Tropez had made a product that was going to save me so much time and make my life much easier. Applying fake tan can be an all-evening affair. But With this gradual tan you slap it on in the shower and you can dry and get dressed as normal and it will develop throughout the day.
When I tried out the original in-shower tan I admit wasn't too impressed. The idea was great but I just didnt see the results I was after. I did find that I could get a shade nearer to what I wanted if I used to product a few days in a row and built it up but I wanted something more instant.
The new medium shade gives me the desired result on the first go. Meaning this bottle will last me longer as I won't need to use so much of it. The colour builds with each use so there's potential for an even darker colour too. I love it.
It's very simple to use -
- Get in the shower and do your thing (y'no, wash etc)
- Smooth on the tan ensuring you're not directly under the stream of water.
- Wait 3 minutes.
- Get back under the running water, rinse off and wash your hands.
- Dry and get dressed as usual.
The tan develops throughout the day and there is no fake tan smell. You are left with a very even, natural tan. I am so pleased with not only how well it works but how easy it is to use too.
If you weren't too impressed with the first versions results I really recommend you give this a try.
