One Night Only

I used to be obsessed with tanning. Not just self tanners but full on tanning beds. Twice a week. All year round. Just writing that now makes me cringe. The dangers of tanning beds are indisputable which is why I switched to self tanning products a few years ago. I've tried just about every product in the St.Tropez lineup and I loved them all. I had perfected the head-to-toe tan using the Dry Luxe Facial Oil, Everyday Bronzing Mousse and the Everyday Bronzing Spray, for those hard to reach places.

Over the last year or so my obsession has started to fade, no pun intended. I have found that I am less committed to maintaining a consistent tan and more often just use tanner for special occasions. This is normally about a week long process of applications to build up to the desired colour which is why I am so excited by St.Tropez's new One Night Only Wash Off Face & Body Lotion. You read that correctly, the product not only washes off but is sweat proof, so there is no need to worry about colour transferring to clothing or furniture, or getting streaky with a bit of sweat in the summer. Even more exciting is that the product comes in two shades: Light/Medium and Medium/Dark, which means no more weeklong prep. I can achieve my desired colour in a single application. With two colours to play with you can even get creative. In the image below I have used the Light/Medium all over and then applied the Medium/Dark below my cheekbones and on my temples to create a contour that wont budge.

You can purchase these products for $20 each at Shoppers Drug Mart, Murale, Hudson's Bay and Nordstrom and online at
