    Comments about St. Tropez Gradual Tan Tinted Everyday Body Lotion:

    To start, I have peachy-pale skin and a good deal of freckles. I also (unfortunately) have kertosis polaris, which is a fancy term for annoying dry red bumps on my skin (legs and arms mainly). This product is a serious self esteem saver! Nothing wrong with any skin tone, however these bumps really bum me out. I got teased a lot as a child for them. This product is amazing because it has a bit of an air brush effect on my skin which makes the bumps wayyyyy less prominent. So yay for that. The color is natural and even in tone. It is a bit sticky after application, it really helps (if you have access to air conditioning) to bump up the a/c for the 10 minutes after application, I feel like it has a good cooling/drying effect before getting dressed. Keep in mind if you live in a humid climate it will feel sticky for a bit after. Also as to the smell, it doesnt' bother me and I am very sensitive to smell. I'm wondering if maybe people who hate the smell accidently bought an expired bottle? I also reccommend using gloves when applying since it will stain your palms. I also think exfoliating is always a good idea as well as applying a little of a normal lotion in the "trouble zones" like wrists, ankles, fingers and neck. Also make sure not to apply anything oil based prior to applying this (like scrubs or gels you may use when you shower) That can lead to streaky outcome. I also like this product because of it's tint, it helps me figure out where I've already applied or if I haven't applied enough. But keep in mind it's sitll a gradual build up so don't over do it! All in all I think people need to have more reasonable expectations when it comes to self tanners. Their is no miracle product that pefectly tans your whole body in 5 minutes with no odor or texture. We're just not there yet. Come down to earth a bit and just stick to whatever is most effective and affordable for you. Also don't forget to apply sun screen over your faux tan to protect your beautiful self! :)

        I really like the color you get from this tanner! It looks very natural too. My only complaint is how thick it is. And I still feel greasy even after drying myself with a hair dryer for 5 minutes before getting dressed lol. Even after a few hours I still feel greasy. I think I will try the Classic Gradual Tan lotion next. Really do love the color though!

                I have used the product 3 times so far, every other day. And so far I am pleased! All self tanners are a pain to use but this product is fairly simple. As with all of them, be sure to exfoliate well.

                I love this product because it doesn't have that "spray tan smell". However, it completely washes off after I take a shower. So bummed.

                  Received the mini as a free gift along with my purchase of the Gradual In-Shower Lotion. It's like glamorous make up for the body! It gives my tan a quick boost, dries quickly and has a sensual scent. It also provides a bit of glowy shimmer to the skin that does have a little blurring effect. I am thinking I should use this on a date night so the candlelight can showcase all this does!

                      We recommend using a self tan product and showering the instant bronzing guide color off after the recommended time prior to working out or sweating. Our Express Bronzing Mousse is the perfect product for a more active lifestyle.

                      A:

                      St. Tropez Gradual Tan Tinted Everyday Body Lotion is slightly darker than the Gradual Tan Plus Sculpt & Glow. With one application of Gradual Tan Plus Sculpt & Glow, your tan will be about 2 shades darker than your natural skin tone. With one application of Gradual Tan Tinted Everyday Body Lotion, your tan will be about 3 shades darker than your natural skin tone, even after the built-in guide color (tint) has been washed off after 8 hours. We hope this helps!
