First Impression Friday: St. Tropez Gradual Tan ❤

Hi beauties 🌞

So spring is upon us & its that time of year again when we want to start looking a bit healthier (or at least less vampy!!!).
To begin this transition into spring/summer skin I decided to take the plunge & buy the St Tropez Gradual Tan! I’ve heard such good things about this brand & product, but never took the plunge.

St Tropez Gradual Tan
– light/medium skin formula
– 100% natural tanning agent
– natural streak-free colour
– easy to use

Before I applied this product I had a shower, I didn’t exfoliate my body, I just washed as usual. I like to apply my tan on a night before I go to bed, so it can develop over night & I wake up a bronze goddess 🙂

This gradual tan comes in two shades light/medium & medium/dark! Being very pale I chose the lightest one! To apply this product it is very simple as the product is a cream formula which comes out white. As this is a gradual tan, it acts as a moisturiser & tan in one, which always wins me over!

While applying this gradual tan I noticed it had quite a fragrant, floral scent, which to me was very pleasant as with most gradual tans you get that ‘fake tan’ odour!!!! (Ew!) I was very pleased with this as throughout the development of the tan it only had a slight fake tan smell, which is a winner & one of the main reasons I wanted to try it in the first place! 🙂

When I woke up the tan was quite noticeable, I am very fair & not used to any sort of tan. Anyway, I went into the bathroom to have a peak at my new tan, to my surprise it looked very natural & healthy. I was astounded by the beautiful, streak-free finish & guess what? No funky smell either. Yipeeee!!! Plus, it moisturises my skin PERFECTLY. It sinks into the skin quite quick, leaving your body feeling nourished all day!👍

ST Tropez has really got it down good with their Gradual Tan, I knew there was a reason why everyone loved this brand so much! :)❤

Have you tried this product or any other from this brand? If so, what did you think?

Lots of Love Natasha

6. Garnier Summerbody: Project 10 Pan!♥

Hi beauties. ☼

The sun is out & we all want that beautiful sun-kissed look, but living in the UK means it can’t always be achieved naturally! So the search is on for that perfect fake tanner! Well beauties, you’ll be happy to know. I think I may have found it…

What is this miracle product I hear you asking?

It’s the Garnier Body Summerbody Moisturising Lotion.

What Garnier claim:

A moisturising lotion for a sun-kissed look, with natural extract of Apricot. Effective 12 hour moisturisation which gradually builds a tan.

Do I agree with these claims? Yes, I do! This gradual tanner definitely gives great moisturisation to the skin, when I use this (usually on a night) I find my skin is left feeling super soft & hydrated all day long! Unlike other gradual tanners this doesn’t smell too bad, the scent does actually resemble apricot. However, this kind of goes once the product is applied onto the skin & starts to develop! The longer the product is left on the skin the more it develops that fake tan/apricot-y smell, to me this isn’t a bad smell. I don’t think we can ever get away from that fake tan smell so at least this isn’t too strong (it smells better than other tanners I’ve used!!)

How does it work?

This is a gradual tanner so it is obviously meant to be built up. If your skin is naturally fair, go for the light shade & if your skin is naturally darker then go for the deep! Each shades are developed specifically with fair/dark skin tones in mind, the lotion contains a hint of tanner which gradually builds up a natural, even looking tan!

Do I need to prep my skin?

No, prepping your skin is not essential. This is not a ‘fake tan’ so you don’t need to exfoliate & moisturise to get an even looking tan! The fact that this is a moisturiser with a hint of tanner means it won’t cling to dry patches as the moisturiser in the product will hydrate the areas that need it while leaving you with a sun-kissed glow. I usually make sure to apply this to clean skin (just after a shower/bath) on a night, why on a night? This takes a good few hours to develop so it seems like the most sensible idea. When you wake up you’ll look like a goddess!!
