    Comments about St. Tropez In-Shower Gradual Tan:

    I was concerned that the promise of no self-tanner odor was too good to be true. Sadly, it is. I took a shower at night, using the product as directed. There was no smell at the time, but I woke up in the morning reeking of self-tanner. BUT, here is where the product differed: when I took a shower in the morning, the odor did not return after the shower. So, if you want to fuss with 2 showers a day, you can have a tan with no "public" smell as long as you space out applications to every other day. I have very fair skin, but used the medium color recommended at the store. It took about a week to develop a visible tan. I did have some blotches at first, it is important to make sure you don't leave blobs in less smooth areas such as kneecaps or ankles. This is the first self-tanning product that I have tried that I can stand to use for repeated use, so I consider that a win!

        You use it for 3 min in the shower, your wet and you rub it all over and turn the shower off for three min then rinse. I did it 4 days in a row and only noticed two orange blotches under my knee and on my foot. No gradual tan and it still smells like tanner (the label said different)
        I had got mine from ulta so I returned it for money back as an I satisfied purchase .. They always have carried this product and just relabeled it so it's not a new thing they carry just re marketed

              I did as it said on the bottle and followed all the steps correctly. I used it multiple times and noticed little to no results except for the tan splotches on my legs and shoulders. It did not makes me tan. It gave me tan streaks on my legs but no where else on my bad. Quite upset I spent that much money for something that didn't work at al.

                  I am very fair skinned, and this product made me look "normal". While no one was fawning over my tan, no one was gasping at my ghostly white legs either. It gave me a very natural looking healthy look. I used it several days in a row at first and now just twice a week to maintain.
