    option à considérer

    I have been using this product for 21 days. First 14 I applied the product as directed, last 7 days I have left it on for 5-6 minutes. I am FINALLY beginning to see the smallest evidence of change to the tone of my skin. The good news is that it really looks like I have been in the sun. There is absolutely no streaking or hint of orange. This is amazing. It has been a painfully long process but I am extremely pleased with the result. I have no opportunity and not much desire to sit in the natural sun, so I love this option.

    Easy to use

    I love the idea of this in shower tanning treatment as less risk of streaks. The product does not smell of fake tan and is easy to use with just a 3 minute wait before showering off. However I bought the medium colour and its quite pale - it does state gradual build up of colour but you'd easily need a couple of bottles to get you through the summer months. I would but again as it great for busy mums.

    Gradual streak free tan!

    Good product to start a base or keep your tan in full force. Gives little color and needs consistent use. Very easy to use and streak free! No orange tones. Super great if you are really pale.

    In shower self tanner? Don't mind if I do...

    I didn't even know I could do one of my favorite things in the world (self tanning) while I was showering.. My mom brought 4 bottles to my house and I was obsessed. After shaving, its like an in shower lotion so your skin is ridiculously smooth after your shower and you've already done half the work. Thank you St. Tropez... you are a god sent for making this product. <3

    This didnt work for me

    I really wanted this to work, but it was too good to be true. Made no difference to my skin. I have medium-olive skin so maybe it would work on someone not as dark?

    I use their tanning mouse and love it so I thought the in shower would be perfect to keep the tan up. I tried it more than once, even leaving it on for longer than it said and saw no colour at all. It was a pain to use as you have to stand in the shower for a few min with no water on you and it gets cold, it would be worth it if the product worked but I saw nothing and am pretty pale to begin with. I would recommend a number of things from them but not this.

    This is the first in-shower self tanner that I have ever used, so I don't have anything to compare it to. I received a luxury size sample of this in a bonus beauty bag from shoppers after spending $150 dollars on skin care products. Anyway, I was nervous about trying this, because many years ago, when I was in high school, I tried a self tanner and looked like trump. (Can I say that here? Or is that fake news?) The bottle says light to medium skin and I personally have olive undertones. As a kid, I was olive all year but in the summer I always got deep brown and very seldom did I ever burn. As an adult, i am wayyy more pale. Soooo I thought what the heck and so I did it. I followed the instructions on the back of my tiny sample ( which btw was tiny even though it was a luxury size) so I did my normal shower, exfoliat, shave, wash, and then my hair.. I turned off the shower, then I took the st tropez and began to rub the pruduct in circular motions, all over my body. The product comes out a little darker than a gold color with a slight tinge of green and is thick consistency and very creamy. The smell isn't terrible. I put this everywhere except my face. Then washed the palms of my hands, and waited for 4-5 mins. The bottle says 3 mins but I lost track of time while tweezing my brows lol. Anyway, I washed it off with lukewarm water and patted dry. The actives work over the next 8 hours. So at the end of the day I wasn't sure if I even noticed a difference. (Should have done before and after pics) I used it for 3 days in a row before I noticed that the bottle said light to medium color... duh. Anyway, I didn't notice much of a tan really, but on the 5th day .. 2 days since the final application, I went swimming and my friend said my skin looked completely even and super bronzey.
    Final thoughts are:
    This would be great for lighter skin tones if they want to be darker.
    This had no orange tones at all.
    That tiny luxury size bottle still has enough to do 2 more applications. So it goes a long way. I may even grab a bottle of this for middle of winter because I didn't notice color on my olive skin, however, my friend was right!! I was Even-Steven all over.
    Since I did not buy this product, I checked it out on the shelf, and it seems to be slighty more pricey than a few other brands but, to not look like trump, is worth it to me. Also , a little goes a long way for sure.
    Side note..I picked up the starter kit from St tropez to give a whirl. I have not given up on a beautifully-tanned, sunless body.
    Stay tuned

    Very disappointed in this product! Was so excited to try it and was even more excited when I found it in winners for 19.99! However that excitement turned to disappointment when after the third time of use I still hadn't developed any type of colour! I used this in the shower every second day for a week and did not notice any difference. Would definitely not recommend and certainly not at full retail cost!

    I was really hoping this product would work. It claims to be a 3 minute self tan used in the shower to get a buildable glow. I've used this a number of times without much luck with getting a natural colour. I didn't see any results. I found the smell that lingers after you wash off to not be my favourite, but for a self tanner it isn't bad. It is easy to apply but I wish I got a better colour pay off in the end.

    I've used other self tanners and have too often had streaks or the colors were off and it was obvious I had a "fake" tan. This in shower tanning lotion leaves me with a light golden glow. It's impossible to tell that my tan came from a tube. It doesn't give me a deep, dark color but gives enough for a healthy sun kissed glow.
