Great gradual tanner, super strong perfume fragrance
on April 23, 2015
I was so excited to try the St.Tropez Gradual Tan lotion.I figured I could use it as a top up to the the bronzing mousse. Yes, it did give me a touch of even, sun kissed color. I have no complaint about that. Yes it left my skin feeling moisturized and soft. No complaints about that. No, I did not smell even a whif of the dreaded self tanner smell. Yay for that! Unfortunately, the perfume fragrance of the lotion, while not unpleasant a smell, is so strong my husband walked into the room and hour and a half after I had put it on and said "What the heck is that smell?!". The fragrance is so strong I could still clearly smell it more than twelve hours later. After I showered it off in the morning I had the choice of putting more of it on or using the slightly more complicated to put on bronzing mousse before I went to work. I ended up choosing the bronzing mousse due to it's almost total lack of smell. If they can do that with the bronzing mousse, which would have far more of the tanning chemical in it, why on earth can't they make a daily moisturizer that doesn't only complete void out my perfume but can smell up an entire room so strongly that I am afraid to wear it to my office.
