Fake off: L'oreal Tan vs St Tropez
Today I'm posting in regards to the age old debate; is fake tan really worth it? I'll start off by saying this is the only method I use instead of sitting out in the sun. I've never tried spray tans or tanning beds (and don't intend on starting..) I'm reviewing what I believe is a new L'oreal Tanning Mist, and comparing it with the St Tropez lotion.
L'oreal Sublime Bronze Dry Mist - Light - £10.50 rather than £15, on offer at Boots
It has a rather innovative 'spray tan' like nozzle, ensuring you get even coverage
Again, my arms gained a gorgeous bronzey glow after two applications.
St Tropez Everyday Body Moisturiser - Light to Medium - £4.99, on offer at TK Maxx
My arms after one application, the next morning. I use fake tan in the evening, incorporating it into my routine. The cream gave me a light glow.
After two applications, on consecutive days, I achieved a golden glow very much like the L'oreal mist.
So, which is better?
The L'oreal mist is pricier, but the bottle size is decent. The St Tropez is a more high-end brand, the latest campaign being fronted by Kate Moss. I personally preferred the L'oreal Mist as the application process is easier and cleaner. Although the guidelines are to hold the bottle from a distance spraying as evenly as possible.
Both were a little patchy, but I'm no expert at application and I didn't exfoliate religiously! It's easier to erase mistakes with a scrub and cover any patches with extra application.
Which fake tan do you recommend?
