Staying sun kissed: Products to try from St. Tropez for fall

St. Tropez gradual tanners Now that the weather is getting cooler, that means my skin is getting paler.

Although I don’t usually keep up with tanning, whether that’s in the sun or self-tanning, once the weather gets cooler, I do like to throw on a self-tanning product every once in a while since it helps to boost the mood and I feel like I just look better with a tan (who doesn’t?!). The thing is, right now I’ve shied away more from the darker tanning mousses and gravitated more towards gradual tanners that give you a gorgeous, natural-looking glow.

To achieve this kind of tanning effect I’ve been using a lot of St. Tropez products, who recently loaded me up for fall to keep my glow going year round.

St. Tropez Gradual Tan Classic Daily Firming Lotion Light/Medium

For the body, give the St. Tropez Gradual Tan Classic Daily Firming Lotion (C$38) a shot. This lotion, which I like to apply after a shower or before bed, hydrates, protects, smooths, soothes, and firms skin thanks to five super skincare benefits.

Use this cream everyday to build a sun-kissed glow that hydrates skin without feeling too heavy.  It locks in moisture for up to 72 hours and won’t leave you smelly or streaky.  The formula contains a high molecular weight hyaluronic acid, plant-based marine algae, and an antioxidant blend of upcycled blueberry and raspberry seed oils. I also want to add that the formula contains 95 per cent natural ingredients and is a vegan-friendly formula.

The great thing about these tanners are that they also hydrate skin and I find that these also absorb really nicely into the skin as well so it doesn’t leave you feeling gross or tacky.  It also doesn’t leave a weird tanner scent, so it’s really the most ideal product for everyday use.

St. Tropez also offers this in a watermelon scent as well, the Gradual Tan Watermelon Daily Firming Lotion (C$38), which is the one I’ve been using right now since the watermelon is really pleasant to smell.

I have been using St. Tropez products for years now and although their bronzing mousse is usually my go-to items, I have been loving their gradual lotions lately.

For the face, St. Tropez Tan Classic Daily Youth Boosting Cream (C$38) is a hydrating moisturizer which leaves you with a natural-looking tan and visibly firms and plumps skin. Apply this cream morning and night to build up a natural facial glow that hydrates skin up to 72 hours.

It contains a blend of up cycled blueberry and raspberry seed oils, which are high in antioxidants and protects skin from environmental damage. It also has red bell pepper, which protects skin from blue light damage and pollution, which can lead to visible signs of aging.  Lastly, it contain a dual-molecular-weight hyaluronic acid, which hydrates and visibly plumps skin.

Although I do like this cream, for a better tanning effect I prefer the Self Tan Purity Bronzing Water (C$39) since I find it leaves you with a faster-developing glow.

These are all great products for everyday wear, and although they are on the pricier side, I do think they are worth the money.  If you are interested in picking any of these up, it’s currently the Sephora holiday sale, so it’s a great time to grab them at a fraction of the price.

Have you tried these St. Tropez products?
