Right about now is when my skin goes from pale to transparent. Which is why I always reach for the self-tanner this time of year. The only issue is that my boyfriend hates, and I mean hates, the smell of self-tanner (he claims he’s allergic and makes a big show of opening the window to let the room ‘air out.’)
Anyway, keeping in mind his delicate sense of smell, I’ve been searching for a self-tanner that didn’t, you know, reek. Cheryl actually tipped me off to St. Tropez’s self tanner which has something called an ‘aromaguard’ in it. I don’t know what this so-called aromaguard actually is but it works. The first time I smeared it on, I was skeptical: But after a day walking around with the stuff on and no comment whatsoever from boyfriend, I was convinced: It really doesn’t smell.
While the lack of scent is the main appeal for me the color also goes on evenly and is very natural-looking. It’s a bit subtle, so if you want a more dramatic tan, plan on doing it once in the morning and again at night.
Get it here.
