~ St Tropez Applicator Mitt ~
I will totally admit to being a fake tan junkie! I love the stuff and look and feel ill without it so I was absolutley delighted last month when I received a bottle of St Tropez Self Tan Bronzing Mousse and a St Tropez Applicator Mitt in the post after I won a competition!
I have used St Tropez in the past and have used mitts in the past but I had never used a St Tropez Applicator Mitt.
It came nicely packaged in a frosted yet see through plastic pack which had the St Tropez logo running down the side. Through the bag you could see the mitt inside which was black on one side and a creamy colour on the other.
Taking it out of it's pack there is no way of telling now that is a St Tropez Mitt as there is no logo or anything on it, it's simply a black Lycra material on the one side with the other being a creamy coloured foamy sponge type material.
I was pleased to see that looking inside the mitt the foamy side was backed with a plastic skin, I knew then that I wouldn't end up with the tell tale tango coloured palms!
The Lycra side stretches nicely so that my hand felt snug inside and that the mitt wouldn't be moving around (unlike a cheaper mitt I own!).
You use the foamy side which is slightly furry to apply the fake tan mousse. You simply pump out the mousse onto the mitt and start applying it.
I started with my legs and was pleased to see that the mitt allowed great coverage of the mousse. Moving up to my arms and body again I was pleased to see no streaks appearing. The mitt allows the mousse to glide on easily and gives a nice even coverage.
In the morning when I had showered I was very pleased to see a nice even tan with no streaks at all.
I have used this mitt a few times now and whilst it does perform like any other mitt I felt it offered a better fit than some of the cheaper mitts I have purchased in the past.
To clean it I simply hand wash it in the sink with a warm water and a little washing powder and leave it to dry naturally (not in the dryer like everything else!). But even washing it doesn't actually get rid of all the colour so my mitt is now a browny colour. But I expected this as even in the washing machine they still don't come out clean.
I do think using a mitt does help quite a lot when applying fake tan (a mitt or an inside out sports sock!), it helps give a more even finish than when you simply rub it on with your hands and as a plus they also stop you having orange palms!
As I have said I won this in a competition so did not pay anything but these can be bought for about £3.
Thanks for reading :o) x
