Had St tropez done last night for event tomorrow on beautician's advice, did as instructed and didn't shower till this morning, didn't scrub, patted dry etc. My face and thighs are almost back to their normal colour, so are my hands! I didn't want to be really dark as I am naturally fair skinned, but also didn't want to look like a patchwork quilt!! Waargg! Anything I can do to patch it up? That could make it worse I think...
can't advise as have never had one, however, had my first ever spray tan last night by Beau Bronz (chemical free) and it's bloody amazing; I am super pale (light reflective legs) and it looks so natural people are asking me if I've been away...! they sprayed some kind of "colour lock" spray over tan, then had to wait 10 mins then do nothing til this morning, I had a shower, all normal and looks fine. Do they do this spray over the st tropez also?
Body lotion this am, but they told me to do that, wore loose clothes until this morning. Heading off in car now so no chance to retouch! Wail!!! Will look out for that other brand, and no, there was no "top coat". BOOO. Thank you for input tho!
I had a St Tropez 10 years ago before going to Australia and I ended up looking really streaky within a few days...I've never have another one. They just did the whole colour thing and that was it. Looked like a dirty old bag lady .
Neither would I based on this weekend! To be fair, it was better and quicker than what I could have managed at home whilst juggling 2 kids etc, but wouldn't rush back to that particular salon. The colour was nice though and I am very pale normally. Not sure if the streaks/inconsistency was the fault of the product or the application iyswim!
