St. Tropez Body Polisher
Well folks, it's getting nearer and nearer summer time, more reason to have a wonderful glowing tan. Now, if you're like me and want a tan but try your best to avoid skin cancer, then a fake tanner lotions are probably part of your weekly beauty routine, but you can't achieve the celebrity worthy tan without your skin being in great condition - that's where this product comes in.
St Tropez Body Polisher, Step 1 is a very fine exfoliant to be used before you apply your fake tanner (preferably to be used in conjunction with other St Tropez products).
According to the bottle; Uncover smoother, softer skin. St Tropez Body Polisher will refine and renew skin to create an even and longer-lasting tan, while leaving your body feeling polished all over. Designed with large round beads that will never rip or tear the skin. It is as beautiful in colour and scent as the French Riviera.
Now I'm not one to brag, but my skin is already pretty damn smooth anyway, simply because I exfoliate and moisturise like it's going out of style, so I didn't really know what good this would for me, but I paid for it, so I was going to bloody well use it!
The Body Polisher comes in a tall, white bottle, just like the St Tropez Auto Bronzant (check my review). It is made of soft plastic, so that you can squeeze the product out easily, but it is in no way of cheap quality. The lid is made of hard black plastic and has a one sided flip top cap. The ingredients, directions, description and company information is all printed on the back of the bottle, leaving the front to host the famous St Tropez logo and product name.
The directions on the bottle say; 1) Use St Tropez Body Polisher 2 or 3 times per week when showering or bathing. Massage onto wet skin using circular motions, concentrating on elbows, knees and feet to prepare skin prior to self-tanning. Rinse well.
The directions which follow this are only relevant to the other St Tropez products.
I took the bottle through to the shower with me and hopped under the running, warm water. After thoroughly washing my hair and body, I then moved onto the Body Polisher. I unscrewed the cap first so that I could smell it. It was really delicious, like a clean, fresh scent. And man oh man, the colour of the Polisher was insane. A very bright blue, you'd have to see it to believe it. It looked very thick in consistency, and the bottle was filled to the brim. That's value for money ;).
I re-screwed the cap and the squeezed a small amount into my palms. I then rubbed it all over my arms and was amazed with the results, my skin felt really silky and smooth. I repeated this process with the rest of my body and then got out to moisturise with the St Tropez Body Moisturiser (step 2).
After applying the self tanner, I realized why this product was so important, it resulted in an extremely even tan which looks 100% natural.
I have continued to use this before every self tanning application and use it every other day to prevent self tan build up in my old skin cells. My skin has never looked better.
I purchased this product in a set from Boots which cost me £30. Included in the set was St Tropez Auto Bronzant 120ml, St Tropez Body Polisher 120ml, St Tropez Body Moisturiser 120ml and St Tropez Everday Daily Moisturiser 200ml (a gradual, light, false tanning moisturiser). There was also a pair of latex gloves included. This may seem like a steep price for some, but buying this set will actually save you just over £17 as buying these products separately from ASOS.com would cost you £47.70 - now that's what I call a bargain!
This kit will last you anywhere from 3 weeks to 3 months depending on how often you tan - it lasts me roughly 4 weeks.
So what are you waiting for? Get yourself to your nearest Boots and pick up not only a bargain, but a healthy glow too!
