Win this St Tropez tanning gift set for you and your BFF for double date night

What’s better than date night? Double date night! St Tropez is giving you and your bestie the chance to win a tanning gift set each. 

Love is in the air this most romantic of months with Valentine’s Day falling on February 14.

When it comes to getting in the mood, we want to feel as body confident as possible. That’s why our go-to date night essential is St Tropez’s newest range: Purity.

Perfect for Tanning Thursdays, Purity goes on clear – so no staining those bed sheets! And St Tropez’s new gift bag comes with a Mist spray that is ideal for tackling those tricky areas like hands, feet, knees and elbows. You can also use the Mist for your face!

Preparation is key

24 hours before you apply tan, prep your skin for tan with St Tropez’s new Tan Remover Mousse.

Michaella Bolder, St Tropez tanning expert says, “This is an ideal product for special occasions, when you might need to correct a tanning mistake! The priming action means it will not only remove your old tan but will also moisturise the skin, plus the natural extracts (including yoghurt) promote a healthier skin base which is needed for a good quality tan.

“Also, if your skin doesn’t have too much tan build-up it can replace the need to scrub the day before. What’s not to love?”

The day of tanning, Michelle recommends avoiding applying moisturiser or deodorant as these can interfere with the tan.

For your body; using your tanning mitt, apply St Tropez Purity Mousse in long sweeping motions, starting at the ankles and working your way up. Then for your back, turn the mitt back to front and start applying in the same way. The product gives a light gleam to help guide application.

For your face use the St Tropez Self Tan Purity Bronzing Water Face Mist. This product is a multitasker’s dream as it’s enriched with hibiscus flower extract, which can help protect skin from free radicals in the environment, and refreshing green mandarin water, infused with naturally derived tanning actives, for the most natural looking tan. Alongside this, hyaluronic acid boosts hydration to keep skin looking youthful and glowing. Simply spritz and glow.

Once you’ve your face and body done, wait until until touch dry before getting dressed. But no need to rinse off. Before getting skin wet, allow eight hours for your natural-looking tan to develop.

To prolong and maintain your tan, moisturise daily, exfoliate regularly and reapply as desired.
