St Tropez In-Shower Gradual Tan

St.Tropez Gradual Tan Shower by What Laura did Next
A gradual tanner that you slap on in the shower and then rinse off three minutes later AND it develops over the next few hours? Too good to be true I thought but, I obviously had to pick up a tube of it when it was released last month in Boots and have a little try.

Now, when it comes to fake tan I fail majorly when applying the stuff. I end up looking like I've been tangoed and don't get me started on the streaks. I very rarely use it as I just find it to be a faff and, then I usually end up wearing jeans until the streaks fade. 

But now, this product may change all that.

Application: Is a doddle. Cleanse skin as normal in the shower, and then switch water off, apply St.Tropez In Shower Gradual Tan all over (no the face though) in circular motions - think of it as though you're applying moisturiser. The formula is thick and creamy so it doesn't budge when you're slapping it on plus, it rinses off quickly as well. 

The good bits: It does exactly what it says on the tube - no streaking which for me, was the biggest drawer to the product and perfect for newbie self-tanners out there. Just remember to give it a few hours after you've rinsed off to see a difference.

The not-so-good bits: Like other fake tanning products, this does smell a bit 'biscuity' and I did find after a few applications, I could smell it on my skin. Also, three minutes may not be that long but, when you're naked, standing in the shower with no hot water running waiting for it to develop, it will seem like a loooong time! 

Overall, this product is definetly a tanning winner for me. It's easy to use for those that are rubbish at applying fake tan and, it does leave you with a lovely Summer glow after a few applications. I would say it's perfect for if you already have a tan (lucky you) and just want a little top up.
