Today I bring you a product that I really REALLY wanted to love, and then didn’t.  It was one of the main reasons why I bought the QVC Test Tube.  The product is…..

St. Tropez Gradual Tan Everyday Body Moisturizer
Here is what Allure Magazine (who loves it) has to say:

WHAT IT IS:
A gradual self-tanning lotion

WHAT IT DOES:
Moisturizes as it produces a subtle color

KEY INGREDIENTS:
Dihydroxyacetone (tanning agent); aloe vera extract (soothes and moisturizes)

HOW IT FEELS/SMELLS/LOOKS:
The white lotion has a mild floral scent rather than the usual self-tanner stench. It’s available in light/medium (shown) and medium/dark.

WHY WE LIKE IT:
The natural-looking, streak-free results and delicate floral scent set this formula apart from other gradual self-tanners. After a single application, pale skin has a hint of a glow; with a few days of use, it’s believably bronze.

AWARDS:
Best of Beauty 2011; Best of Beauty Breakthrough 2009

What do I think? 
I am NOT a fan of this product. It left a lot of my body really streaky.  A gradual tanner should build up color over days, and not become super bold over night, so if you miss a spot there should not be huge spots everywhere after one use…right?  
Can you see my ultra streaky feet?  It messed my arms up big time too, but that was less evident on camera.  Wasn’t a fan of my new oompa loompa orange hue either!
This stuff was so bad that even my husband commented on it.  He normally minds his own business because he knows not to criticize, but I believe his exact comment was “What the $@^& happened to your feet?”  Yeah…
Stay tuned for more self tanning posts!  We’ve been on a roll this summer!
Yours in Beauty, 
Justina

    I had the same problem with this product. Super streaky! I don’t use self-tanning products often so I wasn’t sure how much of the uneven application was my fault versus the product, so I’m glad to see I’m not the only one that had an issue!
