    Comments about St. Tropez In-Shower Gradual Tan:

    Disclaimer: I'm not sure if it was a product error or user error. I followed the directions, showering with soap first and rinsing, then applying the lotion all over and waiting 3 minutes before rinsing off. I only had 2 very small spots of tan on my legs and no where else. I love the brand and all the other products that I've tried from them have worked beautifully, this one just didn't seem to do anything.

      Great stuff! Very easy to apply and great formula idea. Tans evenly and gradually like it says. You need a couple applications go get desired darkness. Looks very natural. I might get the medium to dark next tome to get deeper tan

        It took a few days only to get a nice golden color. I can easily stand away from the water in the shower for three minutes. I like it better than the St. Tropez self tanner as this is easier to use and more subtle. Also no smell

        Comments about St. Tropez In-Shower Gradual Tan:

        I used this after I got a suntan. It's very subtle the first use, but i kept using it and it faded some of my tan lines and my tan is now even and bronze. I have fair/light skin. This product is amazing, quick, and easy to use to maintain a tan.

          Comments about St. Tropez In-Shower Gradual Tan:

          My only complaint is that it requires a three-minute waiting period (with the water OFF) after application. I've learned to mitigate the inconvenience by getting in the shower and washing my legs (the only area on which I use it) first, then applying it, getting out of the shower to, say, brush my teeth to pass the three-miinute time requirement. Then I hop back in and continue my shower.

              Soooooooo disappointed! Bought this for a quick tan. First try I did what the bottle says and left it on for 3 minutes, I washed it off assuming color would develop in the next few hours. It never did. The next morning I hopped back in the shower, desperate for some color, I left it on for 11 minutes!!!! Still nothing!!! I am the whitest shade of white... If this product did what it was supposed to I would be able to tell!

                    All St. Tropez products are sweat-proof after the tan has developed. We don't recommend applying the product and then exercising before washing off. We recommend waiting for the tan to develop, washing off, and then exercising.
