Review, Comment and WIN!

Would you try St Tropez Self Tan? (tell us & win)

Of all the topics I interview dermatologists and scientists about, sun protection is the one they become most passionate about. I remember one doctor from Montreal who told me that I should be using one can of sunscreen every day while on a Caribbean vacation. He spends his days treating patients for skin cancer and not surprisingly has become one of the country’s most vocal advocates for daily sun protection. What I’ve learned is that there is no such thing as a healthy tan. Our society views a golden bronze as healthy and flattering but that golden hue is the skin’s first line of defence against harmful UV rays. The body produces excess melanin to protect against sun damage. The only truly safe tan is one that comes out of a can or tube.

st tropezFor this reason, I’m a big fan of St Tropez. This self-tan brand has developed products that look completely natural without any risk to skin. You can choose a light sun-kissed glow to a deep, dark bronze. Our pro makeup artist Nina Westbury tells me that when she worked at Harrod’s years ago, she and her coworkers would start applying the product on a Wednesday to have the perfect colour for clubbing on Saturday night. These are products that are easy to use and don’t leave streaks or stains.

    I don’t use any self tanners. I burn all the time. I had tried a couple and they didn’t work for me. I’d love to try one like St Tropez that works.

    I don’t use self tanning products regularly as of right now because I haven’t found one with good reviews that I can afford. I’m so pale and have really been wanting to use self tanning products and these sound awesome! I would love to try these products!

    I have tried a drug store brand self-tanner and it only enhanced my freckles! I would give St. Tropez self-tanners a try. @Gaglin

    I have tried a drug store brand self tanner and it only enchanced my freckles. I would try St. Tropez but it’s a bit more than my budget allows @Gaglin

    I have tried a self-tanner (drugstore brand) and wasn’t impressed as it made my freckles darker. I would like to try a product that is beyond my budget @Gaglin

    After having melanoma twice I can definitely say I am a self tanner. I have not tried any of these self tanners but they have been on my wish list for sometime. I’ve especially been wanting to try the in shower self tanner because even though most say they leave no self tanner scent, I can still smell them and I can’t stand it.

    I self tan every summer, and I have used Street tropez in the past. I really liked it however my pocketbook didn’t. I’m definitely thinking of picking up another bottle this summer. Would love to win it though! 😉

    I am not really sure what a blog post is. I hope this is it! I actually received St. Tropez for my face as a sample in ipsy I
    think it was. I love self tanners now. They make them so much beter than years past. St. Tropez was fantastic. It was creamy and it did not take alot to cover my face. It absorbed nicely. I love it because I hate looking pastey if I go out
    with no make-up. Add a little of this for color a little lip gloss and I am good to rush out for a Metro-Mile. The girls in the ads know how to get it on right. They look fabulous. I would give it a go and I am not near as young and cute and fit as them.
