Share this article

Tanning brand  is making waves with an innovative new gradual self-tanner that can be applied in the shower.

“Gradual Tan In Shower” is a gel formula activated by water, meaning that it can be applied to clean wet skin and left to develop.

After three minutes the lotion is rinsed off, leaving a sunkissed pigmentation that gradually builds into a bronzed glow through daily use, with the added benefit of simultaneously functioning as a moisturizer.


St. Tropez Global Tanning Ambassador Jules Heptonstall recommends working the product into the skin in circular motions to avoid streaking.

He also recommends using the three-minute activation time to apply a hair mask or brush your teeth.

The brand claims: “This no nonsense hero allows you to minimize grooming time and enjoy an even and natural looking glow, without the fuss and time traditionally associated with tanning.”
