TRIONA’S MOST WANTED
My two-year-old-teenager Maxim is doing his best to talk, but he can’t pronounce ‘s’. So we put on his toos and tox and, at tix or teven, he has his tupper and then he goes to teep.
This is when I have a tower and use — OK, I’m going to top now, I mean stop, because I need your full attention for what I’m about to tell you.
St. Tropez’s Gradual Tan In Shower Lotion, right, €13.50, is the biggest tan-ovation yet.
The in-shower gradual tan is sold out everywhere because it’s just so damn good. You simply get in the shower, turn off the water after washing yourself, then apply the product to clean, wet skin. Wait for three minutes — you can pop some conditioner through your hair or brush your teeth — then wash it off. And that’s it!
DHA, which is what makes you turn brown, is actually water-soluble, so wet skin cells are more receptive to the reaction taking place. Who knew?
The tan then develops throughout the day and is 100pc natural. It contains almond oil so you don’t even have to moisturise.
The gradual tan gave me a subtle glow after one day of use, which, if used daily, builds to a deeper tan.
Best of all it won’t stain your sheets or your boyfriend!
