[its ok if you're jealous of my 101 Dalmatians towel]St. Tropez One Night Only Instant Glow Body Lotion is a dark brown cream with a touch of pearlescence and a slight green tinge. Apparently, St. Tropez adds a green pigment to their self tanners to keep them from appearing too red or orange toned. Evenly applying this self tanning lotion is an impossible feat. This product is pretty streaky, even if I've exfoliated. I'm not a fan of the color left behind by this bronzing body lotion - it has an unattractive greyish cast. If the undertone was a little less undead, this sunless tanner wouldn't be too bad. I don't think its too dark. I mean, personally I find it a little shocking to see my skin that dark, but I feel like it wouldn't be unnaturally bronze. When it comes to longevity, I understand that St. Tropez One Night Only is a temporary product - the name makes that very clear. This self tanner claims to wash off (which it does), but it can also be removed with a baby wipe, your clothing, or any surface you sit on. What I'm trying to say is One Night Only is an overestimate of wear time. This St. Tropez self tanner transfers very easily and is not sweat resistant. This lotion has a light, neutral scent.
[Well there's a problem]
I didn't enjoy St. Tropez' One Night Only Instant Glow Body Lotion. The packaging is attractive, but that's about all. The texture of this lotion feels nice, but applies in a very streaky, difficult to blend manner. The color comes out of the tube as a shimmery greenish brown. However, it transforms into a grey toned medium tan. This self tanner is meant to last for a day or so, but I only get a couple hours of wear - it sweats and rubs right off. This self tanning lotion just is not for me - I'll pass it off to one of my sister-in-laws, they're both into this sort of stuff. I'm confident in my super pale skin, so I doubt I'll be using any more self tanning products in the future. I've heard a lot of good things about St. Tropez products, so I'm inclinded to think that the One Night Only Instant Glow Body Lotion is a dud in an otherwise good quality range. I do not recommend this product, but I can't write off the brand as a whole.
