ST. Tropez

If you still have not been to the beach or pool this year and you want to look tan we suggest this brand of sunless tanning that leaves skin with a beautiful tone and looking very natural.


The self-tanning product line includes these two brands:

Gradual Tan Everyday Body


A combination of moisturizing elements. Form with Aloe Vera, this nourishing lotion leaves skin feeling soft yet firm and with a touch of color. The new fragrance technology Aromaguard reduces DHA odor by 70%, leaving only a subtle and refreshing fragrance. Suitable for all skin types.

The rich moisturizing formula can be used alone or between tanning applications for a more intense color. Perfect for those looking for a subtle tone as well as for those seeking a more intense tone, the gradual self-tanner is available in two shades, Light/Medium and Medium/Dark allowing you to get the intensity level you choose. This product does not contain SPF.

For best results it is important to exfoliate the skin beforehand. After application wait a few minutes before dressing.
