Longer Lasting Bronze with St Tropez

The pursuit of the perfect tan without the harmful effects of sunlight is something most beauty addicts know all too well. When you’ve found the shade you want for that perfect natural glow, how do you get it looking perfectly natural?

We’re here to tell you how to prep and prime that tan to keep it looking flawlessly natural. No more giveaways at the ankles and elbows, no smudging or smearing anywhere in sight.


It’s no secret that a sunless tan is only as good as its canvas, so buffing your skin to its sparkling best before you apply is a must. Exfoliating all over with Tan Enhancing Body Polish allows for more even application and a longer lasting finish too. Concentrate on tricky areas like the elbows, knees and ankles before you tan to get rid of those telltale pigmented areas that can give the game away.


You might have your moisturiser routine all sewn up for natural, tan free days, but when it comes to professional bronzing not all moisturisers are created equal. Specially formulated to complement your self-tanning products, St Tropez Tan Enhancing Body Moisturiser helps you achieve a flawless finish that lasts longer. Apply it directly before your tan to prevent flaking and ensure a natural fade. Use it daily on your elbows, knees and other dry areas to keep things glowing, soft and sunkissed.


Doing all the right things when it comes to prep and still not getting a streak-free, believably natural finish? Time to overhaul your application process. The Tan Applicator Mitt is specially designed to give the most even application and ensure a professional finish. Make like a makeup artist and use this to buff in your tanning products gradually, building up a finish that’s natural and chic, without the sunlight.


Just when you’ve got your glow looking perfect, you don’t want to see it fade too soon. Get up to three days longer results with Tan Booster, allowing you to apply your tanning products less often. The lightweight lotion feels gorgeous and hydrates the skin using vitamin E and aloe vera, leaving skin in better condition for a sparkling finish to your all over sunkissed style.

If you can’t get enough of that glorious glow, check out the full range of products designed for perfect application and skin with extra sparkle.
