“St. Tropez do it so well that you do look natural: you don’t have that fear which I always did of going streaky and not being able to fix it – total nightmare. There is no reason to go around with that pasty pallor any more, which is really exciting.”
Kate Moss, the new face and body of the ultimate self-tanning brand, speaks wise words. Here at Littlewoods, we couldn’t be bigger fans of St. Tropez. Not only is there the obvious bonus of protecting your skin from harm – actual tanning equals bad, and we all know it – but the finished result will be even, a beautiful colour and you’ll look positively glowing too. Read on for our top picks from the range…
If you’re new to self-tanning, you can’t go wrong with the St Tropez Everyday Gradual Tan Body Light/Medium 200ml. It’s an enriched, nourishing body moisturiser, which combines skincare benefits with a touch of self-tan to gradually build natural colour day after day. Ideal if you’re a little bit wary. On top of that, this formula is infused with conditioning aloe vera and innovative Aromaguard fragrance technology, which eliminates the tell-tale fake tan aroma by at least 70% and replaces it with a subtle, refreshing scent.
For something a bit more advanced and perfect if you love the just-got-back-from-Cuba look, opt for the St Tropez Self Tan Dark Lotion 200ml for an intense fake tan. This design actually infuses with your skin tone to ensure a really natural finish. Is your skin particularly sensitive? St. Tropez products are really gentle on your skin but they’ve brought out a dedicated range for problem skin – how about the St Tropez Sensitive Bronzing Mousse 200ml?
Other great products include the St Tropez Gradual Tan with Anti Ageing Face 50ml – give your face that sun-kissed glow and battle ageing at the same time. And with summer firmly here and bare legs everywhere you look, you’ll love the St Tropez Self Tan Perfect Leg Spray 75ml; a lightweight, handbag-sized, 360° aerosol spray that gives instant colour and an airbrushed finish.
To finish off the holiday look, spritz on a little St Tropez Gold Skin Illuminator 50ml for an iridescent sheen.
