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 had high hopes for this since so many people seem to love this brand. I decided to try the in-shower to see if it would eliminate the stickiness that other tanning lotions have. This product didn't do anything. I saw no change in color. It is easy to use and doesn't smell like other products, but since it is totally ineffective, I am returning it and will try the tanning lotion instead.

                  I just got a spray tan today using organic spray. Can I use this product along side it to prevent the awkwardness of a spray tan wearing off? Or will it strip away the spray tan faster?

                    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.

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!
