I used to use St. Tropez self tan quite regularly a few years ago, however I do only use it very occasionally now. I find that the body lotion 'gradual' self tanning products are better suited to my skin tone; very pale and with tonnes of freckles. I do however continue to buy the St. Tropez disposable latex gloves.
I've tried cheaper disposable latex gloves, however I always end up coming back to the St. Tropez ones as I think that they are much better quality. I typically pay around £3.99 for these, normally from Boots. For your £3.99 you get a packet of 5 pairs of the gloves. This does seem very expensive, but I do think that they're worth it, as I do actually end up getting quite a few uses out of each pair.
The gloves are just one size, and to be honest they're not actually all that big. They fit my average size hands perfectly, snugly, but perfectly. My sister also uses these too, her hands are slightly smaller than mine, and they're fine for her too. The latex gloves do seem to 'grip' your hands, and they're very close fitting and so they don't slide around and slip off my hands. My husband has also tried to squeeze his quite large hands into a pair (I can't remember why he needed them now!) and they actually split as his hands were too big for them.
They do state on the packaging that they're one time use disposable gloves, and that you should remove and dispose of them after using them. I don't think that this is necessary, I've had many uses out of each pair of gloves. So long as you're careful when you put them on and take them off, that you don't rip or snag them, then they're absolutely fine to use again. I find that if I want to use them again, that it's easier to clean the gloves whilst I'm still wearing them. I just effectively wash the gloves by washing my hands whilst wearing them, then I dry them off with a piece of kitchen towel. They're then good to go again for next time.
I always use a very small amount of baby powder inside each glove before I put them on, as that way it's very easy to slip my hands in and out, and not damage them so that I can use them again. Make sure to remove any rings before you put them on though, as these will easily rip the gloves, and also make sure that you haven't got any ragged nails, as again it's easy to rip the gloves with a jagged nail. I always have short neatly trimmed nails, and so I've never ripped a glove with my nails, however my sister has the gel nails applied and she has said that she has ripped quite a few gloves with her nails.
I use these gloves for all sorts of things; applying self tan, applying the gradual self tan body lotions, applying instant shimmer self tans, applying hair dyes etc. I hate the rubbish plastic gloves that normally come with a hair dye, they're always way too big, they're clumsy and they feel awful, and quite a lot of the time there's a hole in one - and you only realise that when you're hands are covered in dark hair dye afterwards!
These are expensive disposable latex gloves, but I think that the quality is high, and I do think that they're worth the money. I'd certainly recommend them.
