Get that glow without the tanning bed

I can’t think of how many times I have wished during those long cold winter months that I had a beautiful beach glow. I swear everything looks better. Clothes just seem to look flawless and you can see tone and definition in my not so toned body. The only problem? I don’t want to risk using a tanning bed which now have been linked to cause cancer. Don’t get me wrong in high school I thought “who cares” ill be fine. As I get older I am not willing to risk my health for that glowing beachy tan.
Well ladies do I have the product for you that is 100% risk free and still leaves you looking like a million bucks ready to take on any night out. It is the St Tropez line of self tanners. I have used these bad boys about 2 years ago when I went to Las Vegas for the first time. I loved it, it gave me the best tan that lasted for about 3-4 days depending on how much you shower.

I wanted to give a quick review of a two St Tropez products that I just LOVE.  I have a tinted face mask that I haven’t used yet and a face oil that I am a little nervous to try as oil tends to make my face breakout.  The last time The first is a tinted every day body lotion.  I put this on after my shower and the next morning I wake up with a nice glow that isn’t too in your face.  Speaking of faces, I do also use it on my face. It just helps to make it look like you’ve spent a few minutes under the hot sun instead of hibernating for 8 months in the Canadian cold winter.  

The second is their express tanner which is supposed to be able to get you to 3 different shades over the course of 3 hours.  I decided I wanted to get dark as I am insanely pale.  I lathered myself up and left it on for about 2 hours and 15 min as I started to see the colour developing.  Once I was finished showering I looked in the mirror and didn’t feel like I saw much of a difference which was discerning.  I put my pjs on and went to bed, when I woke up in the morning I had a nice glow, nothing to intense.  To be honest I wish it was a little darker, but for my pale skin it was enough to make the white shirt I was wearing pop!  It is so crazy how it can help give you confidence you didn’t know you lacked.  I would say that investing in a self tanner is a must if you are someone who likes to walk around with a little glow.  It can be expensive but it will last you longer than going to the salon to get a spray tan which if you are not careful can you leave you looking like a carrot.
