L-R BRONZING MOUSSE, INSTANT TAN WASH OFF, SKIN ILLUMINATOR
First up is the ST TROPEZ BRONZING MOUSSE which is just a standard tanning mousse which you can apply all over your body or just in specific areas. Personally, I go for the latter and just apply it to my arms and legs to give them a little bit of colour so I don't look quite as ghostly pale. When you first apply this, it looks quite dark, which I actually like, and then you shower off the guide colour and you're left with quite a subtle tan. I can't quite decide whether this is a pro or a con for me as when I wash it off I sort of look like I haven't put any on! I apply this with a mitt, usually in the evenings so I can shower it off in the mornings. Otherwise if you go out with the guide colour on and you sweat/get it is a bit of a disaster! (The worst is applying to your arms and then sweating as you end up with brown sweat patches - nice!)
The tan that requires a little less commitment is the ST TROPEZ INSTANT TAN WASH OFF which can be used for face and body. This is great for when you haven't had time to fake tan or if you suddenly have last minute plans and your legs need a bit of colour on them! I occasionally use this on my face if I've fake tanned my body and need my face to match. I have a few dry patches on my face and this does tend to cling a little to them, which is something to bare in mind when buying this. The best thing about this product is that the dreaded fake tan hands syndrome is completely avoidable as you can just wash your hands right after application so there's not an orange palm in sight!
Next up is the ST TROPEZ SKIN ILLUMINATOR in GOLD. Ahhhh, this illuminator is so pretty! The gold shimmers compliments tanned skin beautifully, creating that 'lit from within' glow we are all lusting for in the summer time. This can be used on the body to highlight the décolletage and other places. I like to mix it with moisturiser and put it on my legs to give them a summery glow without being too in your face. It can also be used on your face, as a highlighter or mixed with moisturiser/foundation to give a beautiful dewy finish.
What are you summer must haves for glowing skin?
