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.
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:

You have to stand in the shower for 3 minutes while it works, which was a little annoying but not a huge deal. However I'm really pale and despite using it every day for 4 days, I didn't notice a difference. I returned it.

          Comments about St. Tropez In-Shower Gradual Tan:

          I used this 3 nights in a row, skipped a night, then used it another night and I never saw one bit of color. That was enough to tell me to return it. If it takes a whole tube to see any color, forget it. Too rich for my blood.

              I first saw the product on the Rachael Ray Show. She has beauty segments, it was on one of those segments.
              I went ot Ulta & bought it. I tried it the next day, when I took a shower. I read & re-read the directions on the bottle. So I knew what to do.
              I followed the directions to a 'T.' I went to bed & when I woke in the morning, there was NO change in the color of my skin!
              I tried again a few days later...same result, no change in the shade of my skin!
              I returned the product to the store!

                Wow! I've used St. Tropez foam and mitt before so I expected a good even natural tan. I didn't expect such a dark, beautiful, even tan after ONE shower application. Now to be fair, I followed with the gradual tan lotion (which the smell kept me awake most of the night). If the color doesn't last long it will be a pricey product to maintain the tan. So far, I LOVE this tanner!!

                      How often can you exfoliate after using this product ,are you supposed to exfoliate after using it the first time? I read somewhere that the tan won't take unless you exfoliate before applications.

                        This can vary by individual and is dependent on frequency of bathing/swimming, exfoliating, etc. To maintain your tan, re-apply a few times a week.
