    I was surprised with how well this product works. It does leave the scent of sunless tanner on your skin so be cautious when using but it works very well.

      For the most part the coverage was very even. A spot dropped and pooled by my foot in the shower apparently as one heel was bright orange which had me wondering if I applied it more frequently if I would be orange all over

        I have fair/ light skin with yellow undertones. This is my second day in a row using this product and it's working well so far! I love that I get to wash the product off! I hate the stickiness of lotions and mousse. I did notice a small orange spot on my shin but I think it might have been a scrape that absorbed product. Nothing too noticeable. This product doesn't have a smell for the first few hours but the longer I wore it the stronger the smell got. Nothing too unbearable. This product was just what I needed to get a healthy glow for vacation! Will continue to buy!

          I had never tried St. Tropez before, but had always read and heard good things. I had also never seen an in shower self tanner. I was amazed that as I followed the directions, this product produced a visible even tan on my already tanned skin and untanned skin. I am very impressed with the results and can't wait to see how great it looks after a few more applications.

                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.

                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!

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