St. Tropez Gradual Tan In Shower Lotion

Typically, self-tanner and water don’t play well together, but now, the self-tanning game has officially changed (and this is a win-win). Applied in the shower, this innovative lotion, formulated with all-natural DHA, delivers a buildable, natural-looking glow. And sweet almond oil leaves skin smooth, nourished, and healthy-looking. Simply apply in the shower, leave on for three minutes, and rinse. Now if only all of our beauty and grooming routines were as low maintenance…

I think this is a very cool concept. It does seem to go on without streaking which I was worried about given that you put it on while wet in the shower. I think it does work good. the only reason I have not used this more is that I generally am in a huge hurry and it is hard to stop the shower and stand around for several minutes in the shower before I can wash it off. I also am soaking wet so don't want to be walking around while it is on. A minor problem that only people who rush around like me will have.

I love this product. I would definitely use this in the winter time to give a nice glow to my skin.

Lack Luster
Purchased

This product is great in theory. I felt that the end result was an even glow. That being said, the formula made me break out and the color was too light. The fragrance is light and not overpowering. Application was easy. However, nothing is worse than standing in the shower waiting for three minutes for the lotion to set.

Convenience that can't be beat.

This is a VERY gradual tanner. As in, you would probably have to use it daily to see much difference. That's not much of an issue for me since I'm just going for the "glow". I'll totally buy this again because it's the best application method of any self-tanner I've used and it doesn't have that nasty smell!

I don't usually use self tanning products but it didn't turn my skin orange so that was a plus

Works great, slight smell, but use your regular lotion after if you have dry or sensitive skin

I have had a very bad spray tan experience in the past so I didn't want to get a spray tan for my wedding. I got a sample of this a while back and it worked well so I decided to buy the full size to get a bit more color for my wedding. I am normally very pale, so I didn't want to look unnaturally tan. I have been using this about 3-4 times a week for a little over a week, and I can definitely see the difference but look like myself still. I am very happy with the results! The product does have a slight "tanning lotion" smell that last through most of the day.

The only negative I experienced is that this lotion does provide enough moisture for my skin. When I first started using it I didn't put on my regular lotion after the shower thinking the moisture from the tanning lotion would be enough, but my skin got too dry and developed a mild rash. I do live in a very dry climate and have eczema, so this probably won't be an issue for most people. Now I am putting my regular lotion on afterwards, and my skin is clearing up and no longer feeling dry.

Great for Gradual Glow

I loved how this was applied and washed off in the shower, that really cut down on the self tanner smell. It did very very slowly add color though.
