Natural, healthy, radiant glow
I know I just returned from Antigua less than 2 weeks ago, but Derek and I are off to Jamaica this weekend. It’s been 10 years since Derek proposed to me on the top of Dunns River Falls, and although we didn’t really plan on celebrating our engagement anniversary, we wanted to get away. Jamaica was on the top of our list to re-travel too, so we thought it would be the perfect time to do so. Since I enjoy being “white” I always bring my SPF50 everywhere with me and am consistently wearing a huge sun hat and large sunglasses the entire trip to help protect my skin. That being said, my face often ends up a lot lighter than the rest of my body. Although a slightly darker foundation often does the trick of matching my face to my body, I was on the hunt to find something a little more long lasting and something I didn’t have to apply daily. Meet the new St. Tropez Self Tan Luxe Facial Oil.
St. Tropez Self Tan Luxe Facial Oil is the newest addition to the innovative tanning solution and is a super hydrating facial oil that develops overtime to help give a natural looking, healthy glow to the skin. This luxurious, incredibly lightweight self-tanning formula is not only quick absorbing and non-pore blocking, it’s extremely long-lasting and non-greasy. It’s clinically proven to leave skin hydrated for up to 7 days, thanks to is essential oils formula and is dermatological and clinically tested and suitable for all skin types. It’s designed for the delicate facial skin and although it is lightly fragrances, it doesn’t have that fake self-tan smell.
St. Tropez Self Tan Luxe Facial Oil multi-tasking skincare formula comes in a frosted, luxe glass bottle with dropper for easy application. Although it has a liquidy, luminous consistency, it’s incredibly easy to apply and blend out. Simply apply 2 to 3 drops to the palms of your hands and gently massage into the skin. Continue to blend over entire face, neck and décolletage, allowing the oil to fully absorb into the skin throughout the day or even overnight. Allow a solid 4 to 8 hours before getting wet and wash hands immediately afterwards. You will not only see instant results, it will actually keep your skin hydrated and moisturized the entire week.
I’ve actually been mixing in a few drops of the St. Tropez Self Tan Luxe Facial Oil with my daily moisturizer, every other day, to help maintain my radiant glow. I actually find I achieve a more natural and even tan this way, without having the fear of my skin becoming too dark. Although it feels a bit sticky once applied to the skin, it sets and dries with 10 short minutes to a completely soft, supple and smooth finish. It does have a subtle, almost herbal scent that is much more tolerable than your traditional self-tanner. Don’t expect dramatic results, instead it provides a realistic, natural, healthy glow that’s perfect for us pale skin gals. It’s done a wonderful job at matching my slightly darker body to face shade without breaking me out or causing irritation. I’ll definitely be bringing this with me on my trip to Jamaica. It retails for $43 at your local Shoppers, Murale, Hudson’s Bay and London Drugs.
