St Tropez Bronzing Spray!

Only just recently have i got more and more into fake tan, this is due from returning from my holiday with a tan that i wanted to maintain a little longer seeing as it is the winter! Now before my true fake tan days on nights out when i wanted more of a glow i was truly faith full to Rimmel London Sun Shimmer wash off fake tan. I have used both the shimmer and matte depending on the occasion and i have to say for a one night quick fix this product is really nice, you just have to be careful no-one spills a drink on you during the night Lol

This brings me onto the next product, St Tropez Bronzing Spray. I had heard alot of good reviews on this product and when i came across this at a local market for £6.00 i couldn't walk away without it.

What St Tropez say:
This super-fine self tan spray delivers the ultra-even, ultra-smooth all-over tan you’ve always wanted. Infused with conditioning aloe Vera and long-lasting colour, you’ll have a perfectly natural looking tan in an instant. With 360° spray technology. Our innovative Aromaguard™ fragrance technology eliminates the tell-tale self tan aroma by a minimum of 70% and instead gives a beautiful subtle, yet refreshing fragrance. Created by St. Tropez the tanning experts you trust to get it right. So whatever your skin type it’s easy to use for the most natural looking, ultimate tan.

Golden Rules: Exfoliate, moisturise, hold the nozzle about 6” away from your skin and spray all over. Blend with your hand or mitt if necessary to make sure you’re covered as it’s only missed areas that can look patchy. Once you’ve got even coverage wait until you’re touch-dry before getting dressed. Try not to get wet, or sweat, for at least four hours. Finally, shower off to reveal a perfectly golden, natural looking tan. To maintain, re-apply a couple of times a week, nourish daily with a moisturiser and smooth with regular exfoliation for ultimate results.

I have been using this a couple of days a week ever since i returned from my holiday and i love it. It really does give a lovely golden glow rather than an obvious orange tan. Seeing as i have used instant tan alot in the past it was really strange for me to spray a tanning product all over my skin to only see a slight coverage, yes there is a slight coverage when you first apply which i really like but then after at least 4-5 hours it develops into an even warmer tan. I did blend the product with a tanning mit as i wanted to make sure the coverage was even but this step can be missed out as the spray does give an even converge itself i just wanted to be extra care full. I love the fact the spray is so easy, in the sense you cant apply too much, with cream base tans i feel you can make mistakes and some areas can appear darker than others but with this product this wasn't a problem. Just a quick warning please make sure if you are going to try this product out you do so in a room with a window open as you are spraying a considerable amount the fumes can get a bit much. Now i know for most of you the smell of fake tan is always a big problem as yes i found this product did have that "fake tan" smell but after showering the product off in the morning the smell did disappear slightly so don't worry girls it doesn't stick around long! Overall i really love this product and will keep repurchasing although it does retail at £20 which i feel is a bit steep for a fake tan!

Whilst searching the St Tropez website i did come across this gift set which i am now eyeing up hehe...i think i always will have a place in my heart for Instant Wash Off fake tan and this product really sounds amazing! My cousin also really rates the St Tropez Bronzer which is included in this set and seeing as i have wanted to try the bronzer for a while now it just makes sense :)



  1. If you get chance there are some St Tropez Gift Sets in the Boots sale that are half price :)

  2. Cheers for the review - it's interesting, I've always wondered how the St Tropez stuff rates! I've never been quite able to justify the price tag myself and am an massive advocate for the L'Oreal sublime bronze range - if you ever run out of this stuff and need a new cheaper product to try, I definitely recommend it! x
