This €14.99 beauty buy is the best thing I have spent money on this month
A healthy, glowing complexion is the holy grail for many.
But if you want to keep your skin wrinkle-free and healthy, tanning yourself in the sun is a big no-no.
And – as a general rule – self-tanners for your face can be a risky operation. Trust me – I have tried – and failed a few times. And while it is one thing concealing a streaky tan on your arms or legs, it is a lot harder to do so when it has happened to your face.
But now all these worries are so yesterday, because I have discovered a product that delivers the perfect healthy glow to my face, with just that right amount of sun-kissed colour. Win-win!
It's not a brand new product, and I don't know how I was so late to the game, but there you go. Sometimes good things take time.
Say hello to the St.Tropez Self Tan Express Face Sheet Mask.
Sheet masks are, of course, a real beauty biggie in the skincare world of late, and the clever minds at St. Tropez have gone a step further and added ingredients that gradually bronze your skin into a mask.
In short; it is the product you have been searching for your whole freaking life, delivering a radiant, healthy glow that perfectly suits your skin tone. The best bit? It doesn't smell weird or dry out your skin, just leaves it dewy and glowing, with a colour that looks like you just stepped off the beach.
How does it work?
Simply clean your skin as you normally would, then unfold the mask and apply to face.
Then (after you wash your hands to avoid your palms getting a colour too) you simply relax and let the mask do its job. Leave it on five minutes for a natural, light glow, ten minutes for a medium colour and 15 minutes for a deeper tan.
Now, remove and throw out the mask, and gently massage the excess serum around the eyes and hairline blending into the neck and décolletage – and wash your hands again after.
And, here's the genius bit, after application, your skin will be left with a dewy glow and the self-tan actives will continue to work for up to eight hours, developing into the perfect, natural shade.
