If you are in the market for figuring out an easy, natural way to maintain sunkissed skin during the cool winter, I’d wholeheartedly recommend trying St. Tropez Everyday. It gives you a natural, gradual tan through this moisturizing body lotion that can be used regularly to give you that gorgeous bronzed glow. This product has won several awards in a variety of UK papers, and it only hit shelves in the States this past May. What do I love about this product? I love that it gives me a moisturizer and self-tanner in one, but it isn’t such a forceful tanner that you may end up with streaks. It’s natural, soft, and just a great way to achieve a year-round tan. I find it so practical that it offers two “colors”; one for fair to medium skin and another for medium to dark skin tones. All in all, I found this to be a product that does exactly what it says, and I’m not terrified by its price!

Available for $30.00 at, Bath & Body Works, CO Bigelow, Red Door Salons,, and other select locations.

  1. I’ve never used a self-tanner before but am thinking about using one on my legs! I’m afraid of turning orange though! Are the results orangey?

    The big question for me is how does it smell? I cannot stand the gradual self tanners that you pick up at the store because by the end of the day you have tan stank.
    I’ve used the Lancome one and it’s probably the best in terms of smell, but it’s still a little stinky.

    • I don’t find it has any “tan stink” to me, actually. It’s not a full on self-tanner, because it’s a gradual lotion, so it gives you a slight bronzy look, but not changing you dramatically by several shades at once.

  3. oh good. if i go on vacay to hawaii in the middle of the winter then i’ll be sure to try this stuff then. i’m so pale! (for me!)

    • Haha! I like that it’s a lotion and subtle tanner, so I don’t have to do both steps with two products. I am SO lazy when it comes to that stuff.

    I purchased my St. Tropez Everyday on a Duty Free water taxi we took from Paris to London and it sounded so good, I had to buy it. Now I’m sooo sorry I didn’t buy more, I absolutley love it!! It is everything it claims to be and more. I love the actual “Sunkissed” way you look. I will buy more, and not a strong smell either.

    I have this product and I guess the smell isn’t great but when you put it on your skin feels so moisturized and healthy. I love it. Also it’s very gradual so you have to be patient.
    Great product for people with pale skin.
