Review x 2 | St. Tropez Tanning Mousse

It's around this time of the year that many of us start to notice that our faces and bodies are particularly pale, which shouts in need of a beach holiday and Vitamin D deficient. One way to combat that feeling is to revive your self-tanning routine, although less is more when it comes to tanning this time of the year.

We are huge fans of the original St. Tropez Self Tan Bronzing Mousse. We're convinced that no other product can give us quite the same perfect, non-orange glow. You need to apply St. Tropez with a spongey mitt to protect your palms. Three pumps will cover your upper body, which is really all you really need to do during the winter. Wash your hands well, and let yourself totally dry before putting clothes back on.

If price is holding you back from trying St. Tropez, try the Jergens Natural Glow Gradual Tanner. The results are slower and more subtle, so using the medium/tan option will give you results faster. Jergens also offers a "no-odour" version, which has a far less strong smell than the original.

After your self tanner dries, use a body moisturizer to dilute and blend the colour. We're aiming for a bit of glow during the winter with this routine, not a full-on, amplified tan. We love the Vaseline Intensive Care Cocoa Radiant Lotion, which contains petroleum jelly and cocoa butter which helps protect the skin from harsh winter weather.

What self-tanner do you use?
