Review: St. Tropez Gradual Tan Body Lotion

ENG

This is my first ever tanning lotion and I was really hesitant when I was first buying it. I decided to go with a gradual tan body lotion, because it's not as intense as a normal self-tanner but still gives you the coverage needed. I have used up the whole bottle, which took me about 3 months. I use it both in the winter (to bring back some colour to my pale skin) as well in the summer (to boost a natural summer tan). At first, I have to be honest with you, I was really disappointed with it, because it left the appearance of a streaking tan, which I absolutely hate. I almost gave up on it, however I tried again a week later, this time a bit different. I left it on a bit longer to properly soak in (about 30 - 45 minutes) and the results were amazing. So much different from my first few uses. I obviously didn't leave it long enough to dry at first, so that's why the results where so horrible. After realising the proper way of applying it, I can honestly say that this is by far the best tanning product for my very pale skin, because it leaves it very soft and with a healthy flush of sun-kissed bronze colour. 

What it claims: St. Tropez Gradual Tan Everyday Body Lotion cleverly combines serious skin care benefits with a healthy touch of sun-kissed colour. Enriched with soothing Aloe Vera this luxurious Gradual Tan lotion soothes, smoothes and hydrates skin whilst budding a gradual golden tan. Ideal for everyday use; St. Tropez's innovation Aromaguard Fragrance Technology eliminates tell-tale self-tan scents and leaves skin refreshingly fragrant. Perfect for adding a subtle glow to pasty winter skin or boosting a natural summer tan, Gradual Tan Everyday Body Moisturiser leaves skin deliciously soft and supple with a healthy flush of sun-kissed bronze colour. It is available in two stunning shades to perfectly compliment your natural skin tone (light/medium and medium/dark). 

Retail price: 16 - 17 eur (on Beauty Bay) 

My experience: This is my first experience with a self tanner and I couldn't be more happier. I have been using it for a while now and it so easy to use - streak free and smells very nice. You get a lovely, natural colour and very fast results, even though it's a gradual tanner. The lotion is very affordable for the effect it gives. You simply apply it with your hands, just like you would do it with a normal body lotion, leave it to completely soak in (for about 30 - 45 minutes) and then dress in some loose clothing in case you still feel a bit sticky. I love to use it before I go to bed and replace my body moisturise routine with this tanning lotion. 
There is just one more thing I have to warn you about - if you want to be really tanned, go for the medium/dark shade. The light/medium one will just give you a lovely glow, very natural looking tan on fair skin (if you don't very strong tan, but love just a hint of colour). 
All in all this an amazing product and would definitely recommend it to everyone!

Danes vam bom predstavila samoporjavitveno kremo St. Tropez Gradual Tan, ki sem jo kupila približno 3 mesece nazaj. Na začetku sem se nekako upirala samemu nakupu, saj še nikoli prej nisem uporabila samoporjavitvene kreme in pravzaprav nisem vedela, kako vse skupaj deluje. Odločila sem se za "postopno" samoporjavitveno kremo, ki je bolj primerna za mojo svetlo polt in ni tako intenzivna kot ostale kreme. St. Tropez je že dolgo časa izredno priznana znamka, zato sem lahko  upravičeno pričakovala dobre rezultate. Kremo sem nanesla vsak večer pred spanjem, enako kot bi to sicer storila z navadno kremo za telo. 

Kako učinkuje: St. Tropez Gradual Tan Everyday Body Lotion združuje tako koristi same skrbi za kožo kot tudi vtis zdravega, porjavelega tena kože. Losijon mili, gladi in vlaži kožo med samim procesom nastajanja (postopnega) videza porjavelosti kože. Posebna inovacija Aromaguard dišave odpravlja slab vonj samporjavitvenih krem in pušča kožo osvežilno dišečo. Losijon je odličen za dodatek rahle barve bledi zimski koži ali pa kot spodubda poletni zagorelosti kože. Na voljo je v dveh odtenkih: svetel/medium in medium/temen. 

Cena: 16 - 17 eur (na Beauty Bay) 

Moje izkušnje: Po prvih nekaj uporabah sem bila izredno skeptična in dokaj razočarana na losijonom, saj se je barva nanesla izredno neenakomerno. Nekateri predeli so tako ostali izredno bledi, drugi pa dobesedno oranžkasti. Kmalu sem ugotovila, da sem kremo uporabljala popolnoma narobe. Namesto da bi jo pustila delovati 30 - 45 min, da se popolnoma vpije v kožo, sem jo pustila delovati le slabih 10 min, kar pa je čisto premalo časa za doseg dobrih rezultatov. Ko sem nato naslednjič uporabila losijon, sem se držala pravil, ki sem jih izbrskala na internetu in kremo pustila delovati 45 minut. Končno sem opazila rezultate, ki sem jih vsekozi pričakovala. Sedaj sem nad losijonom popolnoma navdušena, saj dosega izredne rezultate - koža je enakomerno porjavela in obenem sveža in mehka na dotik. Losijon uporabljam pozimi, da rahlo spremenim svojo izredno bledo kožo, kot tudi poleti, da še bolj poudarim poletno zagorelost kože. Je cenovno izredno ugoden glede na svoje odlične rezultate.
Opozoriti pa vas moram le na eno stvar: če želite doseči izredno temno barvo polti, raje izberite odtenek medium/temen, saj vam svetel/medium da vtis le rahle zagorelosti kože in je odlična izbira za bolj svetlejše odtenke kože.
Zares sem navdušena nad St. Tropez Gradual Tan losijonom in vam ga z veseljem priporočam!
