FREE Gradual Tan In Shower Medium w/any $20 St. Tropez purchase
Add a sun kissed glow to you shower routine. With sweet almond oil, the St. Tropez In-Shower Gradual Tan is clinically proven to hydrate skin for up to 24 hours, while developing a natural looking streak-free golden glow. Specially formulated to lather and glide evenly and smoothly over wet skin. This lotion uses a 100% natural tanning agent and is also paraben, sulphate and phthalate free. After showering, the self tan actives will naturally start to work, developing gradually and deepening with regular reapplication within the shower.

Sophie's Pro Tips: Always start from the bottom of your body and work your way up. To tan your hands- Once you have covered your whole body and your hands have been washed, rub the back of your hand over a large area of the body that has been covered well. This is an excellent product to maintain a real and a self-tan. TOP TIP- Waiting longer than 3 minutes will give you a slightly deeper glow.
Fully cleanse and wash in a warm shower. With the shower off, generously apply the product in circular motions with your hands to wet skin to create an even coverage. Wash palms after application. Wait 3 minutes. Fully rinse off with warm water only. Gently dry yourself, before getting dressed. After showering, the self-tan actives will naturally start to work, developing gradually and deepening with regular reapplication within the shower.

      Comments about St. Tropez In-Shower Gradual Tan:

      I got this in a kit otherwise I would have returned it. I used it 3 times according to instructions and didn't get any color at all. Total waste of time and money. Honestly the whole idea of it is flawed bc who wants to stand freezing in a shower with it on and water off for 3 minutes anyway.....

      Comments about St. Tropez In-Shower Gradual Tan:

      I use the light/medium and the color is decent. The application process is easy but it stains fingernails easily even after washing my hands. I am not a fan of the smell at all. I probably won't purchase this again.

      Comments about St. Tropez In-Shower Gradual Tan:

      I have used this 3 times in the shower and left it on for 3 minutes as instructed and I see no results at all. In order for this not to rinse off while you're standing in the shower for those 3 minutes is to completely turn off the water. I'll try again and leave it on for a longer period of time, but I'm not optimistic

          A:

          In-Shower Gradual Tan provides moisturizing benefits. If using on the face, we do not recommend applying an additional moisturizer or makeup, as this could negatively affect product performance. We hope this info helps!

          Your skin should be wet. Here are the full usage directions:

          Fully cleanse and wash in a warm shower. With the shower off, generously apply the product in circular motions with your hands to wet skin to create an even coverage. Wash palms after application. Wait 3 minutes. Fully rinse off with warm water only. Gently dry yourself, before getting dressed.

        Can I use sunscreen after applying this? Or do you have to stay inside on the days you use this?

          A:

          In-Shower Gradual Tan provides moisturizing benefits. We do not recommend applying an additional moisturizer or sunscreen after it, as this could negatively affect product performance. You could certainly use it at night, and then apply sunscreen as usual in the AM, which would allow the color to fully develop overnight. We hope this info helps!

        • Staff Expert

          A:

          As long as you fully rinse off In-Shower Gradual Tan after 3 minutes (with warm water only), it should not discolor your towel.
