Has anyone used St Tropez in shower tanning lotion? I started using it yesterday, and having never used a tanning product before, am not sure what to expect! I'm examining myself in all lights today, trying to see a difference, but am not sure. I'll keep using it anyway as I realise it's a gradual build up of colour.
I find it really hard to believe it can work when you wash it off after only three minutes, and that after having applied to wet skin.
I was just curious if anyone else has used it (especially if you're ghost-white generally!) and if it worked, and if you liked the effect? I have a dread of the obvious fake tan effect, which is why I've never ventured into this area before.
I've been using it for the past two days and have seen no change I colour what so ever so I am coming to the conclusion that it is shit I really wanted this work as it doesn't smell like fake tan at all and it makes my skin nice and soft.
Bloody hell, not surprised it was on offer then!! Oh well, I'll use it all and continue to thrust various body parts into sunlight now and again...
It seems so WRONG to wash it all off after three minutes - almost like a waste. I'll keep it on for five minutes later, just to get my money's worth....Was really concerned about the 'brown palm' effect, so was scrubbing like crazy after application. Palms are paler than they've ever been!!! sigh
OP - yep, white is a step up for too . I still don't look properly tanned, but for me it's quite a natural look and the orangey fake tan and stained hands look I see other people sporting doesn't appeal to me at all!
