St Tropez Perfect Legs Spray

I went out wearing a dress and no tights at the weekend – brave in this weather? Well, yes! Brave to bear my pasty white pins? Not this time! Luckily, a new can of St Tropez Perfect Legs Spray had been waiting patiently for me to pluck up the courage to go tightless, and this weekend was the perfect opportunity to give it a go.

The can is a small, handbag sized affair, at only 75mls – this was enough for me to do my entire legs, and a little left over. If I’d have wanted to have taken it out with me for touch-ups it would’ve been the perfect size… but no touch-ups were needed.

I applied it as per the instructions – holding it 6 inches away from the skin and spraying it from thigh to ankle, then finishing with a light spray over the foot. I loved the way the spray worked just the same whether I was holding it upside down or the right way round, and came out as a nice evenly coated tan. Sometimes I got a little too close to my legs, resulting in a darker streak, so in those instances I rubbed it into my legs with a silicone glove on.

Another plus was the amazing smell. It smelled nothing like any fake tan I have ever used before, no burnt biscuits present, not a bearable smell, but actually rather nice!

Try to look at the leg to the left of the screen – the other leg has the sun shining on it so looks white in both before and after pics!

What I was left with was beautifully tanned, streak-free legs. I got dressed about an hour after I applied it, into skinny jeans – so I was a little worried this would interfere with the tan… it didn’t. It was still perfect by the evening and all through the night. Even when someone *ahem* spilled a drink down my legs.

It is a little pricey at £10.00 a bottle, if you are only getting one nights use out of it. Perhaps I was a little spray-happy, and the average girl may get two nights-worth, or if you were only doing the bottom half of your legs… but still it’s a lot I think. However, it totally saved my bacon (and outfit choice) for Friday night – and that, my lovelies, is invaluable! If I go out feeling confident in how I’m looking I tend to have a better night – and the Perfect Legs Spray certainly left me with no worries about my legs.

Have you tried St Tropez Perfect Legs Spray? What do you think? Would you pay that price?

    I've only tried the Sally Hansen Perfect Legs – and I have to say that although I like it, I don't like the shimmer that they put in it. So this one might just be the one. £10 is a little pricey, but if it makes you happy, then the price shouldn't matter 🙂

    I normally use Sally Hansen Perfect Legs, which is a similar – if not the same – price depending on where it's bought from. You also get the same amount. Very tempted to try this one out, because I'm a massive fan of the Sally Hansen version and always have at least one bottle on the go x

    love the before and after piccies. I hope this will inspire, encourage, and invite girlies (or anybody) to experiment. I am more a rub-the-product kinda of girl, I feel like I have more control of where it goes so i treated myself and bought a instant st tropez set in the sale at boots. Not tried it yet but your post really invited me to do so pronto!

    Looks lovely Alice – really nice golden colour. But why did you use it under skinnies? Didn't you want to show off your legs?
