St. Tropez Tan Optimiser Body Polish

The weather has been pretty cold here in Ottawa lately, and I know that it's only going to get colder from here! I've been self-tanning in order to keep up my Summer glow, and I've been using St. Tropez' Tan Optimiser Body Polish* ($20/8oz.) to help prolong the life of my tan. 

"What is it?
A gentle Body Polish to prepare your skin for self tanning. While bathing or showering, simply massage your body in circular motions, concentrating on elbows, knees and feet then rinse well.

Who is it for?
Anyone who wants to prolong the life of their tan and have smooth, soft skin. So whatever your skin type it’s easy to use for the most natural looking, ultimate tan.

Why is it different?
Our body polish, specially formulated for a gentle action, will help to lightly remove tired skin cells, making the skin ready for great tanning." - St. Tropez

This body scrub from St. Tropez has a really nice, light scent that doesn't linger on my skin. This product is white, but it looks as though it has a blue shift to it. The formula is quite gentle, so that it won't remove any existing self-tanner that you have on already. I use this in the shower before I'm going to apply any self-tanner. I have actually found that I can get another day or two out my self tanner when I use this scrub! I typically go for quite rough scrubs, so of course a gentle scrub is better suited for anyone who fake tans. Using this product before self-tanning will also help to ensure that you aren't left with any product build up on your elbows, knees, and ankles. 

I think that this product would be great for anyone who regularly self-tans, and who wants to prolong the life of their tan. This body polish smells great, and I love how gentle it is while still getting the job done. Have you tried any Tan Optimizers from St. Tropez?
