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…

Didn't see a difference

Didn't like waiting 3 minutes in the shower every time I used this. Didn't get any results.

I haven't seen any results after 4 uses

I haven't seen any results after 4 uses...I guess I will keep using it. It smells funny but at least you rinse it off.
It doesn't seem like it works very quickly. Kind of a time consuming way to tan.

no orange, all good!

I was hesitant about using this product in fear of turning orange- but to my surprise that did not happen! Smell was nice and brought out color!

THE SMELL
Purchased

ok. I really wanted to like this. But it just didn't live up to my expectations. It is hard to put it on in the shower and somehow stay away from the water for 3 mins. It left me kinda streaky. and it smells awkward. The original St Tropez has a much better scent than this does.

This is working
Sampled

I have had this sample for awhile, and since leaving my job I have had to cut back on tanning. We have a trip to the beach coming up, so I thought I would try this. I admit, I was not a believer! This product actually works, and is subtle and natural. I am so pleased with this ease and efficacy that I will be purchasing the full size of this product!!! Thanks, Birchbox!!!!

Hard to say....

I think this stuff could be awesome if maybe I tried the full size bottle. the sample wasn't big enough to make a difference. But I guess it left a little bit of color in the couple uses I got out of it. if only it would stay longer! lol

Just ok...stains tiled showers!

I was excited to try this, but noticed stains on grout where some of the product ended up while I waited the 3 minutes, then rinsed.
I do think St. Tropez makes a great self-tanner, however, this one was a little messy, and drippy.
I'll stick with the original.

I was so sad when I ran out of this sample. It was a lot of fun to use and definitely works, without streaks! The gradual effect is beautiful.

While it's a little awkward standing in the shower without water running, I do like this product for a subtle tan
