Want a quick golden tan without having to deal with mucking up your clothes or getting brown streaks? The new self-tanning water from St. Tropez will be your new favourite way to get your bronze on.
Let’s be honest, having a golden, bronzed look makes everyone look happy and healthy. But who wants to subject their face to the harmful rays of the sun? This is why I’ve become a fan of self-tanning products.
Whether they’re in cream form, sprays, foams or in-shower gels, bronzing products are always innovating in order to give you the best self-tan at home without streaks or looking like an orange Donald Trump. And yes, they really have come a long way.
Many people shy away from self-tan lotions because they’re forever scarred with the embarrassing orange, brown streaky outcome the old formulations left on their skin. But now, some of the best brands, including St. Tropez, offer different levels of bronzing and different formulas that suit your bronzing comfort levels. The bottom line is, there’s no more streaking.
Still, even with today’s best self-tanning products, you still need to blend them into your skin properly. The best way to blend is using a mitt. Even if you’re not perfect at blending, you won’t ever get those terrifying old school results, especially with the new self-tanning water formulations.
What is Self-Tanning Water?
Taking cue from Korean Beauty and the trend of beauty waters, St. Tropez has introduced the latest ground breaking tanning technology for face and body: St.Tropez Self Tan Purity.
The range consists of a Bronzing Water Face Mist and a Bronzing Water Mousse to refresh and revive skin leaving it with a natural looking tan with 100% natural tanning additives. The formula contains lightweight tropical Hibiscus Flower extract, which can help protect skin from environmental pollution, refreshing Green Mandarin Water, infused with naturally derived tanning actives, and Hyaluronic Acid, which boosts hydration to keep skin looking youthful and glowing.
All you need to do with the St.Tropez Self Tan Purity Bronzing Water Face Mist is spritz it on your face like a mist and let it develop over a few hours. I like using a cotton face pad to gently spread the bronzing water over my face to ensure it’s evenly spread. It’s super easy to use and so convenient!
St.Tropez Self Tan Purity Bronzing Water Mousse is an ultra-lightweight foaming mousse that delivers a glowing and natural looking golden tan with a subtle tropical fragrance. Because it is water-based, it easily glides onto the skin and with no with no guide colour. The product will gradually develop over eight hours into an even golden tan. Once you apply it, you can dress afterwards as the product won’t transfer onto clothing.
After testing both products, I love the way these self-tanning waters give me a natural-looking golden tan and, more importantly, a healthy-looking glow. I can also say I found no streaking and the products gave me an even, bronzed look.
It’s a definitely must-try!
