St. Tropez Tan arrives at Spa Utopia!

Who among us hasn't wished for that glorious, all-over, glamorous tan - without the risk of burning, or dry, aged skin?  Now, you can look as gorgeous as all those perfectly-tanned Oscar invitees, with St. Tropez Tan!

St. Tropez Tan has been in the business of developing specialized self-tanning solutions for more than 15 years. The result is an unparalleled sunless tanning system found only in world class spas throughout Europe and North America. The exceptional spa procedure and product line has a dedicated following of beauty journalists, makeup artists and celebrities, including the participants on Dancing With the Stars

Available from Spa Utopia, the 15-minute full body procedure applies the special St. Tropez Tan formulation for a rich, natural-looking glow. The spray tan is applied by a trained technician, for the most natural-looking result possible.

Up until recently, one of the problems with self-tanners has been the tell-tale odour of DHA. This is the ingredient that reacts with the skin's keratin to develop colour. St. Tropez Tan professional and retail formulations now contain Aromaguard™ fragrance technology, which effectively reduces the tell-tale scent by 70 percent. To prevent the orange cast associated with self-tanning products, St. Tropez Tan contains special vegetable dyes that instead create an authentic bronze/gold hue. The formula also contains aloe vera for added hydration, increasing the longevity of your tan.

St. Tropez Products for Home Application (how to maintain your luscious tan...)

After your St. Tropez Tan treatment at Spa Utopia, you will want to extend the life of your new and enviable colour! (Your spray tan will last, on average, four days.)

To better maintain colour, we recommend St. Tropez Tan Optimizer formulations, which contain no colour and are also recommended to prepare your skin for a Spa Utopia St. Tropez Tan treatment.

St. Tropez Tan Optimizer Shower Cream: Well nourished, deeply moisturized skin is essential for a natural looking tan. This refreshing and luxurious shower cream is enriched with Mediterranean grapeseed, olive and sunflower oils blended with organic aloe vera, to help leave skin silky soft and beautifully smooth.

St. Tropez Tan Optimizer Body Polisher:  This will refine and renew skin to create a long lasting tan. The large round beads are gentle on the skin and leave your body feeling polished all over.

St. Tropez Tan Optimizer Body Lotion:  This luxurious body moisturizer blends botanicals, essential oils and herbs, in an aloe vera enriched base. For a richer, longer lasting tan use daily to replenish lost moisture.

St. Tropez Tan Optimizer Body Butter:  This richly indulgent balm bursts with cocoa butter and natural oils that simply melt into your skin.

To further help you retain your glorious glow (or to develop it should you decide to go it alone),  we recommend you use either the St. Tropez Self Tan or Everyday Gradual Tan product line.

St. Tropez Self Tan products produce a rich bronze tone and contain a "guide colour" so that you can see where you are applying the tan. Choose from Mousse, Lotion and a convenient superfine Spray format with 360° technology that lets you target those hard-to-reach areas. (Your tan will develop in 4 - 8 hours.)  Also available is a Tan Intensifier - a lightweight easy-to-use lotion specially formulated to make your self-tan last longer. Simply smooth on for an instant colour boost. This unique lotion is infused with rich Mediterranean oils, antioxidant Vitamin E and a specialized blending of tanners to help prolong your golden, natural looking tan.

St. Tropez Everyday Gradual Tan products produce a natural looking glow with no guide colour. The colour develops gradually, each application of product building on the next. Choose from Everyday Perfect Legs for gorgeously golden gams, Everyday Body (light/med or med/dark), Everyday Face (light/med or med/dark), Everyday Mousse and Gradual Tan Spray with 360° technology.

Also available is the St. Tropez Self-Tanning Kit containing Bronzing Lotion, Body Polish and Body Moisturizer.

Spa Utopia also carries a handy application mitt and St. Tropez Self-tan Remover, which helps keep your hands free from colour, and "undoes" areas inadvertently overtanned.

Please note that none of the St. Tropez treatments or products for home use contains an SPF. It is therefore important to wear a sunscreen to protect your skin from harmful UV rays.

  2. I absolutely agree, the mystic spray tan offers a better quality tan than the other spray tanning booths. Our customers just love this uv free tanning method. Great blog and advise!
