I realize that many drugstore offerings are just as good as their department store counterparts. For instance, chemical formulations of self tanner are generally the same across the board. EXCEPT for delivery and scent. Wait…. delivery and scent are the two most important things, at least to me, in a self-tanner. Now, most brands have figured out how to avoid the orange cast, so I am always focused on getting it on evenly and not smelling like a spray tan booth. I am still a HUGE fan of Xen-Tan, but if you are more of a spray girl (or boy), then give this a whirl.
I’m not saying this isn’t a splurge – $35 for a can. But considering I used to pay $30 a pop for professional spray in my San Francisco days, this is a bargain. The can still feels full after three applications to my legs and arms over the last month. (side note: self tanner should be discarded at the end of every season)
St. Tropez Self Tan Bronzing Spray is a fine spray, allowing for all the angles (important if you live in singledom). The spray lasts approximately four of five days on me. There is a naturally looking depth of color, but the highlight is the scent. St. Tropez uses Aromaguard™ fragrance technology that eliminates “self tan aroma by a minimum of 70%”.
Smells good, easy to use, good color. Can’t really ask for more.
