Fake tan that dreams are made of ...

Fake tan that dreams are made of ...

When I was younger I was obsessed with looking tanned. As I've got older I've embraced the pale! But for some special occasions I do like use false tan.  

I used to hate it though, mainly because there's not much more uncomfortable than trying to sleep when you're covered in fake tan, the smell, the stickiness, yuk!  

So when I saw that St Tropez, arguably the experts in all fake tan, brought out a tanning mousse that claimed to develope in a couple of hours, so you can shower off and go to bed sticky free, I was desperate to try it. 

And I must say I was more than pleasantly surprised. Infact I love it! Mousse has always been my favourite type of false tan, my top tip is put it on with a normal flat sponge and apply in a sweeping, circular motion - it gives the best even tan. 

Heres what St Tropez say about the new express mousse;

 

'Our most advanced formula yet that allows you to control your depth of tan, for a light sunkissed glow in just 1 hour, or leave on for up to 3 hours for a deeper, darker bronze, to suit your skin tone.'

I love, love, love that you can wash this off in 1-2 hours and have a lovely golden tan. I also find that it's far less drying on the skin than the original mousse and looks more even as it fades.

I honestly couldn't recommend this mousse more for someone looking for a quick and easy tan.  

 

 

Before and after I used St Tropez Express Mousse ... These results were after 2 hours developing time.
