Bronzing Mousse: St. Tropez Spray Tan Keeps It Real

Posted on 03/28/2012

St. Tropez Everyday Gradual Tan Mousse In the world of tanning creams and lotions, the latest is the St. Tropez spray tan in the form of a mousse. There are two types of mousse products from this line to give you a perfect, natural glow – the Everyday Gradual Tan Mousse and the Self Tan Bronzing Mousse. The foam is so simple to use that the hottest celebrities (like Penelope Cruz and Kim Kardashian) wear it before hitting the red carpet. The price is so affordable you don’t have to get a second job just to nab a bottle for yourself.

How to Use St. Tropez Spray Tan Mousse

To get your own celebrity-like tan, take a shower in the evening and exfoliate your skin. Don’t forget about your knees, elbows, feet and ankles because the skin in those areas is particularly rough. When you’re completely dry, pull up your hair. (If you have light-colored hair, dab some moisturizer along your eyebrows and hairline.)

Get the Bronze Glow You've Always Wanted

Posted on 06/22/2012

Self Tan Bronzing SprayShop the full St Tropez collection here.

Warm days and the bright summer sun can remind you how ghostly pale your legs may look. Before putting on your favorite bathing suit and laying out a beach towel, remember that there’s a healthier way to get the bronzed glow you’ve always wanted. The answer comes in a bottle of St. Tropez spray tan, the self-tanner of the stars.

UV Dangers

Regardless of your age, for every minute you expose yourself to ultraviolet (UV) radiation, the higher your risk for developing skin cancer. The sun and salon tanning beds expose you UVA and UVB rays that damage your skin, cause premature aging, loosen its elasticity, give you wrinkles and cause brown spots. Furthermore, those who use a tanning bed have a 74 percent greater chance of developing melanoma than those who don’t, according to the Skin Cancer Foundation. Never think you are too young to develop skin cancer, because even women in their 20s can fall victim to the disease.

Achieve A Natural Sunless Tan With St Tropez!

Posted on 07/30/2012

Shop the full St Tropez range here!

Achieving a fake tan flawlessly is trickier than it may appear. Extra steps taken pre-treatment can greatly improve the way a spray-on tan rests upon the skin. Remember those annoying dark patches that appear on knees and elbows? If you were to exfoliate prior to self tanning and apply a dab of moisturizer afterwards to those areas where we tend to get a buildup of dry skin then chances are lessened that color will cling to those areas and darken. These kind of tips were the subject in Allure magazine's feature on getting a flawless professional spray tan.

For those who want to forego a salon visit, there are many great at home products to choose from like St Tropez Everyday Gradual Tan Mousse. The leader in sunless tanning, St Tropez's Mousse glides on effortlessly and conditions the skin with aloe vera while providing a natural gorgeous bronze. No need to worry about the horrible smell that typically comes with sunless tanning because of their trademarked Aromaguard technology that eliminates smell by 70% and instead gives a refreshing and subtle fragrance. Hope these tips help you achieve the most effective and beautiful sunless tan all year round!

Hot off the Press: Celebs Love b-glowing Products!

Posted on 10/01/2013


Celebrities have the best access to the best brands. But here’s a secret: so do you! 

She Finds is dishing on the “50 Beauty Products Celebrities Can’t Live Without,” and b-glowing brands are among the chosen ones. 

LaLicious Sugar Kiss Scrub, picked by Emma Roberts: It’s a b-glowing staff favorite, too! A perfect combination of citrus, rose, and vanilla is an absolute treat for your senses. Plus, it’s a moisturizing exfoliator that you can simply rub on then rinse before stepping out of the shower. It’s natural and hydrating, so you can even skip your post-shower lotion application (you’ll smell amazing). 

Editor’s Note: After rinsing the scrub away, you can achieve a close shave for silky smooth results.

Rosebud Salve, picked by Selena Gomez: It does everything you’d expect from a great lip balm: moisturizes and calms for more kissable lips. But what makes it special is its ability to heal skin irritation and sooth minor burns. It’s not pucker exclusive; you can use it on dry elbows, nail cuticles, knees, or even for diaper rash! Which begs the question, would a Rose by any other name smell as sweet (or do as much)? 

St. Tropez Self-Tan Bronzing Gel, picked by Carrie Underwood: Streaking is a verb—not an adjective to describe your tan. With St. Tropez’s Self-Tan Bronzing Gel, this holds true, as you’ll achieve the perfect glow for days, without leaving behind any evidence.

WEI Gingko Leaf Repairing Face Treatment Pads, picked by Demi Moore: Demi makes aging look easy (and practically nonexistent). With Wei’s Gingko Leaf Repairing Face Treatment Pads, you, too, can tackle dehydration, sagginess, dullness, redness, and loss of elasticity. The travel friendly pads are suitable for even the most-sensitive skin, and you’ll see results in just 10 minutes.
