St Tropez Spray Tan Before & After

Lately I've had an obsession with St Tropez spray tans quite an expensive obsession lol, but well worth it :D I'm sure you all know I'm a huge tan fanatic I cant live without the stuff Xen Tan being a fav of mine, I'l be honest I think I'm falling outer love with sadly I never thought id say it. I find with the St Tropez Spray Tan the results are so much better I don't know if its due to it being a professional spray tan but I'm absolutely in love!. From start to finish it takes around 20 mins I always say the darker the better lol but its up to you if you wont just a slight tan or a deeper tan, I have two coats I find ones not dark enough for me, once applied within id say five mins you can see it developing getting darker and darker as the hours past, from head to toe your left with a perfect even golden olive colour that last up to a week if you look after your tan!!, in no way is it orange pics will show all any way.

Here's a few tips from the professionals themselves about having a
spray tan treatment taken from

The St. Tropez Spray Tan Treatment is the quickest way to get a professional finish. Delivered in around 15 minutes, the spray is quick drying and now features Aromaguard™ fragrance technology which eliminates the tell-tale self tan aroma by a minimum of 70%.
Before treatment advice:
•Skin should be free from self tan, perfume, deodorant and aromatherapy oils
•Waxing or shaving should be completed at least 24 hours prior to the treatment
•The evening or morning before your treatment, exfoliate your entire body with St. Tropez Body Polish. Pay special attention to dry areas of your body such as hands, elbows, knees and feet
•Wear dark, loose fitting clothing with dark coloured underwear. The guide colour may stain light hair, man-made fibres and wool
•We recommend you have a patch test prior to every treatment
After treatment advice:
•Do not shower or bathe for a minimum of 4 hours after your treatment
•Do not participate in any activity which may cause perspiration for at least 12 hours after the treatment
•The guide colour can be left on overnight although it may transfer onto bed linen. It will wash out of cotton, but not so easily from man-made fibres or wool
Keep your tan looking gorgeous for longer:
•Apply St. Tropez Body Moisturiser or St. Tropez Body Butter daily
•Exfoliate your skin with St. Tropez Body Polish every 2-3 days to ensure even fading
•After showering pat the skin dry rather than rubbing
•Avoid swimming pools as chlorine can bleach the tan

All I would say is if you wont your tan to go even darker leave it on for as long as poss say I usually have one done on a Friday at one clock I don't have a shower until least the afternoon Saturday sometimes later depending on what I'm doing. Don't be scared of the guide colour coming of in the shower your'll still be left with a gorgeous golden tan, you may think its all guna come off it really doesn't your'll be surprised, I know this happens alot with other fake tans you think what's the point it all comes off lol but this doesn't do that. I cant add much else I think their a must for a special occasion or even just to treat your self I feel so much better when ive had mine like a different person in a far better mood to its weird what it does ha.

Me minus about 4 inches

The story of my hair continues over the weekend I've had my hair chopped and I've had it coloured again!!, Its been about 6 weeks since i had it stripped so I thought id give it a while to let me hair settle, my goal is to achieve a golden brown/toffee colour [Lauren goodger], we are getting their slowly this will take a while as I've had my hair all sorts of colours being black for the most part. From having the black stripped my hair was left a copper I dunno what to call it I was told black is made up of alott of red so this is why my hair went a funny copper/orange/red tone anyway the girl at the salon new I wonted to get rid of what I had and eventually go a nice golden brown/toffee so to kill some of the copper/orange/red I believe they used a more ashy brown I cant remember exactly but they know what their doing I don't have a clue lol you could tell even after just 5 mins i could see more of a brown tone to my hair thank god!!. Once the colour was washed out was time for the chop!! we had spoke about cutting it, a good few inches to make it easier its so dense and thick my hair its far to heavy and its a nightmare to do anything with it so we went with taking it shorter adding shorter layers, now I don't no if I was feeling brave or it was due to the fact i had a bottle of rose before going ha but I was celebrating wills and kate's wedding but I went with it and before i knew it my hair was all over the floor!! I thought OMG!! I've always had really long hair and I felt sort off naked its hard to say but I really like the way its turned out you know when your use to something like its your comfort zone and you change something and its like what have I done!! but the more you get use to it the more it grows on you. Its not a dramatic change but like I said its hard stepping outer your comfort zone. Haveing said that im very happy, Looking forward to my next trip already even tho I do like the colour its not what i ultimately wont but i have be patient :D.
