The Art of Express Tanning

st tropez express tan

When it comes to tanning, I wouldn’t call myself an avid fan. Don’t get me wrong I’m all for a bronzed up glow if I know I’m going to brave bare legs however for me, the faff puts me off. Having to lather myself up in the brown biscuit smelling goo before bed, awaken to odd marks or creases that simply won’t wash away all for it to fade after two days, hand me a pair of leggings any day ;)

Although I’m become a creature of habit and comfort there are occasions when pasty limbs simply won’t cut it. Soz pale skin but that glow is just far too tempting! Back in the day these moments were rectified with the Xen-Tan Dark Lotion Absolute Luxe Don’t get me wrong, this is still an absolute fab product just a tad too dark for my super pale skin. Then there was the Michael Kors Liquitan Self Tanner Now this, I still love. Thanks to the natural olive glow it leaves to your skin without any pesky tell signs whilst it wears off, it’s a real winner for those who look towards fuss free tanning.

But now there is this, the St Tropez Self Tan Express Bronze Moose A tan that doesn’t require ‘cooking’ overnight, 3 hours max and you were good to go. Not only that it’s the first moose tan I’ve been able to get on board with. A subtle guide colour helps you from missing a key spot and the moose formula blends in seamlessly without feeling sticky or uncomfortable. 1 hour gives you a light colour, 2 medium and 3 dark. I’ve only ever gone in for the 1-2 hours dosage but even then I’m left with a nice glow without those orange undertones. The colour continues to develop past this point but nothing that will hit Jersey Shore status. For fuss free tanning during the festive season, this is the one to bring you the glow.
