Self Tanners are usually a scary experience for me. Even though my skin has a bit of a tan already, I always feel like I finish off looking like one of the Jersey Shore people. If I learned anything, it’s to read the instructions and exfoliate before application.
The St. Tropez Self Tan Classic and the St. Tropez Self Tan Express are both natural looking and feel like I can gradually build the tan over time. I also think that they’re super easy to apply and super quick to dry. It says you can apply this on your face, but I don’t do self tanners on my face as I’m prone to breakouts. It also claims that it doesn’t smell like a self tanner, but in my opinion, it does have subtle smell. Do I prefer one over the other? I like the Classic one as it stays on longer. If you’re looking for a darker one, the Express seems to apply darker.
I did a patch of the Express Tan so you could see the difference.
I applied the Classic Tan on my entire arm pictured above. This one is more subtle and natural looking in my opinion.
