Yay or Nay? St. Tropez Tanning Mousse review

9:58 AM

Happy Wednesday friends!  I shared last Friday that I had received a bottle of the St. Tropez tanning mousse for Christmas from Mom.  From what she shared she was in love with this tanning lotion.  She puts it on almost every third day in summer and has a very strict regimen when applying (we'll get to that later).  My skin during winter lacks luster to say the least and  I become pretty pasty around November.  So needless to say with all this hype I was super excited to try it.  I'm not one for selfies so please except my horrible pics, I did take these in the same light though... If you want to skip the how to just hop down to the bottom of the post to get my thoughts...

I began with these products:
I usually do this before bed... Take a shower and exfoliate HARDCORE using your sugar scrub and the facial scrub puffs.  Don't skimp on this step, if you have a dry skin the product with go on uneven.

After you shower pat off and get ready to apply your tanning lotion.  I like to start from my legs and move up.  I put three pumps onto the mitt to start with my legs (three pumps each leg).  Squish your hand together to spread out the mousse on the mitt a bit and then start rubbing it into your legs.  You have to be super quick as the product dries very quickly.  Keep rubbing to make sure you don't get any streaks.  I then use one pump at a time to get the rest of my body.

I don't put the St. Tropez on my face, instead I use this Jergens face moisturizer for medium to dark skin tones, the color is less orange than the one for light skin tones.  

Now just let your tan dry before you get dressed.  Don't worry the tan won't rub off on your clothes.  The tan develops over the next few hours and when you shower again the bronzing in the tan will wash off.

What I thought:  I love this product.  The tan is not overly dark and not orange, especially considering I started out very pasty.  The mitt really made for an even application and using this product two times now I haven't acquired any streaks.  I think that if I use this during summer when I have a slight tan the look of the tan will really be great, but this did give me enough color to make me happy through the winter.  I would recommend this product, big time!  

After searching around for the best price, amazon is definitely the best place to go.  For the 8 oz bottle I have from ULTA and Sephora costs $42.00 but you can get it for $30.09 right now on amazon, if you have prime you can get the free two day shipping as well!  Considering a spray tan costs 30 dollars this is definitely definitely worth the price...

If y'all have any questions at all about my experience leave me a comment and I'll help :)
