I really like this product. However, you really need to pay attention when you're spraying it on to make sure you cover everything. I guess I missed a spot, but it was not ridiculously noticeable and it was my own fault. I have the bronzing mousse I think I'll try out, but this stuff is extremely strong smelling while you are spraying on, so definitely do it in a vented bathroom and maybe even wear a mask. It is intense! Expensive, but a good product. I'll probably use the spray over the bronzing mousse next time to get a deep, even color.
I paid £21 for this in Boots. I have used, successfully might I add, the bronzing mousse, years ago, and as I have 4 doo's to go to in October, where I will be wearing a dress, I thought I'd buy this. I thought it'd be similar to the mousse in that it'd go on dark so you could see where you have applied? Wrong. I had patches I'd missed, although not major as the colour wasn't as deep as the mousse?!
Anyhow, the application is easy, the spray makes it easy to spray at any angle and it smells quite nice! I'm glad I did a trial run as I now know I'm gonna need to do two coats of this stuff over two nights!
I took a lippie off as I am pretty sure that regardless of the size of the can, with it being an aerosol, it will run out a million times faster than the mousse.
I took another lippie off for it being pretty impossible to tell where you have sprayed making it a recipe for streaking disaster! A colour guide like the bronzing mousse would be so useful and helpful!
Great product but not for st tropez virgins! If new to it, get the mousse!
This streaked on me (badly) and I couldn't wait for it to fade to reapply as I thought I did it incorrectly. It streaked the second and third time. The fumes from this can is awful. you need a well ventilated room. Also first time I used this was in my bedroom, as I was spraying it on my body some of it sprayed around my room, on the floor, bed, wardrobe etc. I was cleaning my room while this was drying. Never in my room again!
Next time I did it in the shower, I only have a shower curtain and the spray went all over this and stained so the curtain had to be washed afterwards.
U would probably need a tanning booth or a shower with sliding doors to enclose yourself. When I got a professional spray tan it was in a shower cubicle while the beauty therapist sprayed me.
anyway this was too messy and smelled awful!
This product has 5 on price as it didn't work.
My girlfriend paid £20ish for this in Debenhams, and used it and I couldn't tell. I then sprayed half of my face very generously and went home, no-one could tell!
This product went back, either our can was faulty, or this product just doesn't work. Please consider other reviews, as my experience may be a one off.
Amazing! Worked brilliantly tried probably all the fake tans on the market and you cannot best this one! Such a natural colour not orange or streaky perfext builadble colour! The can doesnt last long though!
You need a spray for a decent fake tan I think, and this one is one of the best for an even application.
I totally love this spray and its by far the best that I have ever tried! It gives you the most amazing glow ever and there is no way that you will ever turn orange, its more like a tropical kind of tan. I exfoliate in the shower and dont apply any kind of bodylotion before I spray it on; you will get an instant result but the colour will develop over 4 hours or so. The colour lasts for days and I have plenty of people asking me whether I have just come back from vacation as it really is the most natural tan you will ever get out of a can! Totally love this stuff and I will buy it again and again and again. PS it is expensive (£20) but its totally worth it!!!
Great product but you do pay for what you get!
Read through a lot of wonderful reviews on Makeupalley.com after seeing a stylist recommend this product on her video. Was curious about it but didn't purchase this until I found it on the shelves of a local beauty store.
I am very pale, but my skin can go to the extremes of both sides of the skin spectrum....when I tan, it is dark. This product is nicely packaged, the mist is superfine and gentle, easy to use and has a pleasant smell which disappears after you shower. It took about 8-20 hours for the full color to appear. It isn't apparent initially.
The color is definitely the defining factor for this spray/brand. I have an even, extremely natural but significant tan after one light sprayover. Even my face color matched and hasn't washed off with my cleansers. No trace of orange-ness which I can come dangerously close to if I overspray with my go-to fave brand, L'oreal Sublime. This product brings out my natural color: olive tone tan on a very pale (office potato) Asian girl in my early 30's.
I love this product and would recommend it to others. It is superior to spray tan boutiques or drugstore brand sprays, but use it sparingly. Wish the price was less expensive, but this can definitely be a special occassion spray that I or you use.
This tan looks great - it's not very dark, good on my skin I just looked glowy, healthy and bronzed. As everyone has said it is amazingly easy to apply. Makes the back of hands and feet perfect, like a natural tan. The only problem... the price. It's not that I am not up for spending for a product. I own a lot of the St Tropez line. But one application, one layer (I am a normal size) and half the bottle was used up! Which works out at almost 10 pounds per application.
I would suggest using the St Tropez mousse or regular lotion and reserving this for hands/ feet/ face as it's just not really economical otherwise.
I have been using St. Tropez products for a few years and have always found them to be a league above everything else. So today i purchased this! As it's in a aerosol can i thought it would like having an "in salon" spray tan. I was wrong. Its much better. Sprays brilliantly at every single angle, reaching your back is a breeze. You can layer the tan, and it dries immediately. I dont think you could make it streak if you tried. There is no need for rubbing in, and therefore no orange palms! It smells rather nice too, always a bonus. I got dressed right away, and did not feel sticky in the slightest. The only query i do have....and if anyone can help it would be appreciated, how do you apply an aerosol/spray tan without covering every inch of the surrounding area in fake tan?? I love this product, my mum hates it as it covers her bathroom in tiny brown sprinkles! Anyway it is still developing nicely will keep you informed on the end result!
