I know, I know. A post about self-tanner as we head into fall? Yeah. BUT. Sometimes I try a product and love it so much that I have to share it here, regardless of whether it’s actually seasonally appropriate. And who knows.. maybe some of you are heading off on vacation soon… or want to keep your summer glow going through Fall. I’ve said my peace. These self tan oils from St. Tropez are bananas. If you’re looking to get a natural looking tan, I can’t say enough good things. There’s a face oil and a dry oil for body and both are amazing… but if I had to pick a favorite out of the two, it’s definitely the body oil because of the shimmer.
I discovered these before I left for Hawaii. My mentality is usually, “pale is prettiest,” but for whatever reason, I wanted to be a bronze goddess for the trip. And so I went for a spray tan and picked up these to keep the glow going throughout my trip (without totally frying my skin). Like I said, the body oil is my favorite of the two as it imparts the prettiest, sexy sheen (so good on legs) while working its magic.
The face oil is also lovely, though. It didn’t clog my pores, and it gave me a streak free tan that lasted four days. I apply self tanner to my face more frequently than my body as washing your face makes it fade more quickly.
I should note that both formulas are non-greasy, and did not leave behind any streaks.
