• In Style magazine are giving away a free St Tropez in shower self-tan! Unless you have been living under a rock, you will have heard of this exciting new tanning concept that everyone is getting excited about. It has been flying off the shelves at Boots!

    It's £9.67 (currently on offer) in Boots for the 200ml bottle. I have heard mix reviews about the tanner, so I was delighted to try the 50ml freebie (well, the magazine is £3.99).

    The concept:

    Apply the tanner in the shower. Stop the water and wait 3 minutes, then wash off. Gives a gradual subtle tan.

    The reality:

    How do you time 3 minutes in the shower? I don't have a clock in there, or anywhere I could safely out one, so I kept having to peep out to check my phone. Maybe set my phone alarm next time?

    3 Minutes is a heck of a long time when you are wet! I would not fancy this in the winter!

    The tan result is good if you like a natural colour. I prefer my tan darker. I think it would be great to apply before/the first few days of a holiday when you are still a bit pasty and need a bit of beach confidence.

    I think it's an interesting concept and I love trying new things, but I don't think it will beat my beloved Boots Soltan!

    Have you tried this yet? What did you think? 

    Lots of love,
