A few months ago I received the St. Tropez Purify Bronzing Water Gel in a beauty box and I have only gotten around to trying it out. This is the only ultra-hydrating tanning water that you apply and within three hours, you have an amazing glowy tan. Some self-tanners can dry my already dry skin out a little too much, so it was great to see a hydrating tanner.
The St. Tropez Purify Bronzing Water Gel contains hyaluronic acid which is great for keeping hydration locked into the skin, to prevent it from drying out. It has a lightweight gel texture which does feel a little weird after normally using a cream or a foam mousse, but as soon as you apply it onto the skin, it goes from a gel to a water which means it is so easy to apply and provides moisture for up to 72 hours, which in turn keeps your tan looking and feeling fresher for longer.
We all know how horrid some fake tanners can smell, but this has a tropical scent to it which just reminds me of summer, and the scent lasts all the way through the development stage. You only have to leave it on for 3 hours and then you can rinse it off, so even if you get a last minute invitation somewhere, you will more than likely still have time to apply this tan.
The formula is vegan friendly and are suitable for even sensitive skin, which is great for me, as I do often have quite sensitive skin, which is why some self tanners can make my skin itch, but I certainly didn't have that problem here. I am naturally quite fair and after three hours and a shower, I looked like I had had a really good spray tan and there were no streaky patches and due to the hydrating ingredients, the tan remained smooth and even for about a week.
All the Loves,
