St Tropez Tan Intensifier & Body Butter

Summer is now over (did it ever really begin?) and I'm trying to hold on to my natural tan for as long as possible to delay the rigmarole of the laborious fake tanning process.
St Tropez has developed a product especially for this purpose, the Tan Intensifier.

This lightweight gel-based lotion is specially formulated to make your natural or self-tan last longer by providing an instant boost of colour which then develops over 4-12 hours. Infused with Mediterranean oils, vitamin E and a specialist mix of tanners, the lotion helps prolong a golden radiance whilst giving deep nourishment for sleek and supple skin.

With an 'Aromaguard' fragrance technology, St Tropez claim the tell-tale self tan aroma is eliminated by a minimum of 70% and instead gives a subtle, yet refreshing fragrance. The scent was what surprised me the most. Rather than subtle, I would describe it as a strong, floral scent that gradually softened over the hours. I wasn't the biggest fan but I suppose it beats the smell of mouldy biscuits.

The lotion is a creamy milk chocolate colour and once applied, gives a subtle extra hint of colour to your skin. It was smooth and easy to apply, absorbed quickly without leaving a sticky residue and left no stains on the hands. The perfect pick-me-up for your tan!

St Tropez Tan Intensifier has an RRP of £20.00 for 200ml and is available online

St Tropez Body Butter
One of the key's to prolonging a tan, whether real or fake, is to keep skin nourished and moisturised. I've often skipped this step and the result has been a fading, uneven and patchy tan.

I've now got myself into the routine of regularly applying body moisturiser (almost) daily. I found lotions were being absorbed too quickly and wanted something more intense so St Tropez Body Butter sounded ideal. This body butter is a rich, luxurious treat for your skin, filled with cocoa butter and natural oils. The ultra thick cream leaves my skin immediately hydrated and softly scented, perfect for prolonging tans or simply as a cure for dehydrated skin. I'll be using this body butter in between self tan applications to maintain soft, moisturised skin.
