3 step St.Tropez tanning!

No matter what the month is, if your like me you want to be glowing and tanning.. not orange but just a nice healthy colour...

The St.Tropez 3 step includes:
1 'Body Polisher' aka the exfoliant
2 Body Mosturizer with L-Tyrosine
3 Tinted Self-Tanning Lotion

What St.Tropez say about these products??
Step 1= Uncover smoother, softer skin. St.Tropez Polisher will refine and renew skin to create an even and longer-lasting tan, while leaving your body feeling polished all over. Designed with large round beads that will never rip or tear the skin. It is as beautiful in colour and scent as the French Riviera.

Step 2= St.Tropez Body Moisturizer is a luxurious blend of botanicals, essential oils and herbs, combined with L-Tyrosine in an aloe vera base. For a richer, longer-lasting tan, use daily to replenish lost moisture. This moisturizer was designed to help you achieve maximum tanning potential when using a tanning bed.

Step 3= Indulge yourself with the richest looking tan, in the most luxurious way, without the sun. St.Tropez self-tanning lotion tans instantly and intensifies over 3 hours, for a streakless tan that will last for days. This aloe vera based lotion in nongreasy and quick drying, with a relaxing aromatic scent.

What i say about these products??
Step 1: This is my fav of all 3. It is beautiful in colour, such a bright turquoise and (currently smelling, sooo hard to describe :S) it smells of that fresh, extra clean, almost masculine scent with sweet smells...confusing but i really love it. I leave this bottle in my shower and use it all over my body every few days, it is a great exfoliant with or without tan!

Step 2: This lotion is cream in colour and quite a watery consistency, a little goes a long way..which is great as it is the smallest bottle! It smells on the same lines of the exfoliant but more toned down and for some reason a little more of an 'almond'ey nutty smell.. Its very mosturizing and doesnt leave your skin feeling greasy.

Step 3. I really recommend using this at night and then showering off in the morning as it can peel or become 'bitty' on the skin. It comes out with the same consistancy and colour of melted chocolate and smells a really unfamiliar scent, sort of a mixture of cleaning products and flowers maybe? :S I guess this is better if some people really hate that strong fake tan smell which i for one love haha. Yes I am one of very few!

I really enjoy using these products and i find the final result is great. This pack cost £50 but for a dupe if this is too pricey I always use St.Moriz tanning mousse which was £4.99 from Superdrug and i love this product just as much! Though I would not recommend the St.Moriz Instant tanning Mist as it sprays EVERYWHERE and made a mess...haha.
