I think fake tans get a lot of unnecessary bad press these days. Which is disappointing because surely it is better to tan safely than risk skin cancer? St Tropez was one of the first brands to introduce ‘faux tans’.
Now, I do agree no one wants to look orange or smell of that ‘weird tanning scent’. Luckily these days you dont have to. New advances in technology means fake tan products have come along way, so dont write them off before you try would be my advice to you!

New St Tropez Pre Shower Gradual 1 Minute Tan
A brand new gradual tanning product from St Tropez. An easy everyday pre shower tanning mousse. I agree that this is St Tropez’ most convenient form of tanning so far. In fact I am a new convert to this one minute marvel.
How Do You Use it?
Apply directly to dry skin (like a moisturiser) you dont even need a mit, wait one minute and then shower as normal and dry. If you want a deeper tan, then I suggest you leave it on for slightly longer perhaps 2 mins?
The Benefits of the St Tropez gradual pre shower tan?
- No strong tan smell, so you can use it day or night.
- Use on dry skin
- No transfer on to clothes or bed sheets.
- Foam is enriched with Jojoba and vitamin E, so it is very moisturising.
- No waiting around.
- Simple and easy to use
How and Where I Applied it & My Verdict.
For me its all about my legs, they hardly ever tan and easily burn! Therefore, I used the mousse only on my lower legs because that is where I need colour. Using it over 3 days, was perfect for me, it changed the colour of my legs from milk bottle white to a natural golden glow. I simply rubbed it in with my hands, then jumped in the shower. There was no inconvenient waiting around either because by the time I had finished rubbing it into both my legs, it was time to jump in the shower.
Let me add that you must still remember to scrub your hands. I forgot one day and there was the merest hint of tan in between my fingers!
There was no smell and no streaks, just a golden glow. I am a now a convert to what I prefer to call safe tanning, I like this very, very much and will be using it in the future…simple safe and fast.
Before and After
One from a couple of weeks ago and one from this week., Not a heavy orange tan in sight. Just a natural glow, a colour that gives me the confidence to get these 54 year old legs out for some summer sunshine! Hey I may even wear shorts!

My Video Review
I published a few clips of myself, talking about this product, on my Instagram recently.
Take a look below because I put them together and made a little 2 minute video. I think a video shows you far more than the written word
