St. Tropez Perfect Legs Spray Review
Tanning is a big deal during summer months and I tend to entrust my limbs to a spray tan booth, as I’ve had too many odd experiences (gremlin hands/ weird feet etc). Formulas have improved a lot though, so I entrusted the lovely Ms Hewer as a guest reviewer, to bare her limbs and soul with her St Tropez Perfect Legs experience.
Every time I think about self-tanning, I have flash backs to having to wear trousers for whole summers throughout the late 1990s. However, given that it is now 2012 and beauty products have come on leaps and bounds, I threw caution to the wind, and polished and moisturised myself to within an inch of my life ready to try the St Tropez- Perfect Legs Spray.
My legs could best be described as ‘blindingly white’ before I began. I started with one leg, making sure that my knees and ankles were moisturised thoroughly, and let it dry overnight to see the difference it made. (Picture above).
I found the application quite straight forward (spray on, rub in, and don’t get wet for 6 hours), however, I think I didn’t spend enough time trying to get even, leaving me with the tell-tale-‘this is a DIY job’-streaks the next day. I think these could have been minimised had I stood John Wayne- like in the bathroom for hours, rather than walk around brushing my legs together, sitting down and crossing them etc. But who has time for that?!
When I went on to do the second leg the next day I found it very hard to get the colour to be the same tone. I am hoping this will even out a bit after a few washes, fingers crossed!
Overall, things have definitely improved since my last tanning experiences; there seems to be less of a drive to dye you a deep mahogany and results were much more subtle, plus there were not the usual issues with knees and ankles. On the other hand, there’s still a lot of standing around feeling sticky to get a less than perfect finish. Personally I think I’ll stick to the spray on wash offs daily tan sprays in the future.
