There’s few things I love more than a solid tan. One of them is a good self tanner.
BUT, as we all know frying our skin out in the sun is not the way to go. We’ve all heard the warnings about over-exposure to the sun’s ray, so I won’t blabber on about them in detail.
All I will say is that those warnings and I came face-to-face this week when I unexpectedly had three moles biopsied by my dermatologist at a routine appointment. My Dr. was “very concerned” about them, and trust me, that was not a fun conversation to have. While I’m glad she took precautions by removing them, it’s definitely a little scary. I haven’t received any results yet, but I’m sure everything will be fine. So, my one piece of advice here is: GET YOUR MOLES CHECKED.
Moving on…. I started this off about being tan, right?! This post is about this AWESOME product I found months ago, before the mole drama, and I’m even more glad I found it now that I have that situation going on.
I present to you St. Tropez In Shower Lotion . This stuff is amazing. You put it on after you shower (while still in the shower), body wet and all. It’s a smooth, creamy formula and I think it smells great. You stand there in the shower (with the water off) for 3 minutes. Yes, I repeat, only 3 minutes! Then all you do is turn the water on and wash it off. It’s really that easy. Think of it as a body wash.
The “tan” builds gradually throughout the day, and the best part is it doesn’t streak WHATSOEVER and doesn’t transfer to clothing after putting it on. It’s kind of magical.
I use this self tanner about every other day, and it has given me a nice, natural glow. People at work even told me I looked tanner.
To amp it up a bit, St. Tropez came out with a darker version of this sunshine in a bottle called Golden Glow Medium . Same product, just a darker shade. It came in the mail today, and I can’t wait to try it tomorrow!
So, skip sizzling in the sun and get your glow on with the power of the shower!
