A Pale Girl's Experience with St. Tropez Bronzing Mousse + Clarins Liquid Bronze Self Tanning

You read it right. I, Chelsea, pale ass lady, tried a fake tan and lived to tell about it. The results were surprisingly great!

The Clarins Bronzing Lotion worked wonderfully -- and no break outs! After two applications, I was left with a really healthy looking color on my face (not that my pale skin isn't healthy looking, but I think you know what I mean). I wasn't into the idea of using the mousse on my face, so I was happy to hear great things about this product all over the web and YouTube and even happier when it worked so well for me! A+, Chelsea, the newly created bronze goddess (feel free to snicker), approved!

The St. Tropez Bronzing Mousse gave my pale skin a really healthy glow; however, I felt two coats was a little much. I started to feel a little orange in direct sunlight and didn't want to have an obvious fake tan look about me. However, my boyfriend's family saw me at lunch on my first day wearing two coats and they noticed it immediately, saying they thought I looked really healthy and nice! They were shocked to hear it was fake. Final Verdict? If you are pale -- I can't recommend this enough. If you happen to be blessed with skin pigment -- I have heard nothing but great things about this tanning product from darker skinned people and highly suggest you look into this (or the darker version) as well. Don't forget the mit!
