For days when I find myself looking a little too pale, I love products that can give me an instant sun-kissed look. This is where St Tropez comes in. I have used their fake tans for years but I had never tried any of the St Tropez instant tanning products until now. I have been so impressed with the two products I have been putting to the test recently.
I am incredibly pale so I will avoid sun damage at all costs. I like to use products to give the skin a bronzed effect and bronzer is a must have in my daily makeup routine.
St Tropez Instant Tanning – 3-in-1 Bronzing Powder
The 3-in-1 Bronzing Powder is a great product that allows you to pick and choose the bronzing shade you want. You get three different shades inside the compact. Alternatively you can swirl them all together which is how I like to use it.
I really like the packaging of this bronzer. It comes in a larger yet sleek squared compact and inside the compact you get a great sized mirror and the three different bronzing tones. This has been created to be able to use Sculpt, Bronze and Highlight for the face and body to give a natural holiday glow.
This is one of the most pigmented bronzers I own and a light hand is needed to start off with but you can really easily build up the colour you want to achieve. It is incredibly soft and smooth, making it very easy to apply. Even better it never looks patchy on the skin. It’s also long-lasting once applied as it never seems to fade throughout the day.

Each shade swatched and all mixed together.
St Tropez Instant Tanning – Instant Tan Gloss
The Instant Tan Finishing Gloss was first seen at London Fashion Week SS17 and it is a fantastic product to add a stunning sheen and bronzed effect to the skin. I have been really loving this for days when I have my legs or arms out as they are incredibly pale. It adds such a healthy looking glow and bronze to the skin. This can be layered for your desired effect and it is very easily to remove. It isn’t a long lasting product so it will wash off when you shower.
To apply this, they recommend that you use an applicator mitt to ensure you don’t get any streakiness. However, I have applied it with my hands and not had any issues. I find it blends into the skin very quickly and doesn’t leave you feeling sticky in the slightest. It dries quickly too so you don’t have to wait around to get dressed. You can see in my Before & After pictures just how sun-kissed it leaves the skin looking. You can also see that it leaves a stunning sheen that makes my skin look so healthy.
