The Sephora Glossy gets the low-down on St. Tropez’s innovative new glow-getter.
There are a few things in this world that never mix well: diets and French fries, happy hour and texting your ex, and until now, oil and self-tanner. Although oil usually breaks down DHA (the coloring agent in self-tanner), St. Tropez, the gold (er, bronze) standard of sunless tanning, has done the unthinkable by combining the two notoriously incompatible ingredients in a cutting-edge new body bronzer. With the latest technology, this elixir conditions skin, leaving it hydrated and supple, while delivering a healthy tan. Below we break down the breakthrough self-tanner. RENEE TRILIVAS
This refined dry oil—which took two years to perfect—sinks into skin without a trace of greasy residue. With a unique emulsification process that blends oil and water in a single phase, this self-tanner formula ensures an even distribution of DHA and hydrating oils for a uniform glow.
Packed with conditioning Brazilian nut oil, this advanced bronzing elixir quenches thirsty skin for up to a week. The paraben, sulphate, and phthalate-free solution is also loaded with protective antioxidants like vitamin A and E that shield skin from free radical damage.
Spiked with a trio of essential oils, this self-tanner leaves behind the fresh fragrance of neroli, lemongrass, and grapefruit.
With a 100-percent natural DHA, this lavish formula produces natural-looking color that lasts up to ten days. Plus, the formula is flecked with bronze pigments for an instant sheen that helps guide color application.
After exfoliating, buff this luxurious oil into skin with the St. Tropez Tan Applicator Mitt for lasting moisture and streak-free color.
Accentuate your tan by dabbing a shimmery highlighter (like St. Tropez Skin Illuminator) onto your cheekbones, collarbone, and shoulders for a dewy, back-from-the-beach radiance.
