Jules Heptonstall’s TOP 5 Summer Picks

St.Tropez Self Tan Express Mousse

The 1 HOUR Tan

Where do I even begin with this bathroom essential? It’s like 3 tans in one – a great money saving product! Shower off after 1 hour for a light sunkissed glow, 2 hours for a golden glow and 3 hours for a deep, dark bronze – with all these shade options it’s perfect for sharing! Like any self tan, always exfoliate before you apply and ensure your hands, elbows, knees and feet are moisturised to stop the tan from clinging.

#PROTIP – Set a timer on your phone to ensure you shower at just the right time. When you get out of the shower, pat dry and moisturise your body to give your skin a hit of hydration as your tan continues to develop.


St.Tropez Classic Bronzing Mousse

The ICONIC tan

A summer beauty staple – no beauty cabinet should be without one! This mousse is my absolute favourite for delivering gorgeous golden skin that lasts for up to 5 days. Apply on a Thursday night for tanned skin over the weekend, or on a Sunday night for tanned skin through the week. Always exfoliate before to remove any dead skin cells (trust me, it makes a huge difference to your end colour) and apply with a mitt, pumping the mousse onto the mitt before you apply onto your body.

#PROTIP – Pump the mousse onto mitt and then grip your hand together to evenly distribute the product around the mitt.


St.Tropez Self Tan Luxe Dry Oil

The LUXE Tan

I love, love, LOVE this tanning oil. Fragranced with lemongrass and neroli, it’s like no other tan I’ve ever used. The oil keeps your skin soft and hydrated and the shimmer gives your skin all over radiance whilst it develops. Many of my clients like to apply this in the morning and allow the tan to develop throughout the day, as it’s a dry oil there’s no sticky feeling as the tan develops. And trust me, watching the shimmer infuse into the oil as you shake the bottle never ever gets boring!

#PROTIP – If you’re nervous about any streaking, take an applicator mitt without any product on and run it around your body to blend the oil.


St.Tropez Gradual Tan Body Lotion  


My favourite for first time tanners, switch your normal moisturiser to this one, infused with tanning ingredients, getting that glow couldn’t be easier. It’s ideal if you have a busy schedule and is my secret weapon to prolong a holiday glow all year round.

#PROTIP – Always wash your hands and in-between your fingers after applying.


St.Tropez Instant Tan Lotion


Perfect for last minute tanning, I keep one of these in my desk drawer – it’s like the tanning worlds answer to make up. Apply with a mitt to achieve an instant golden tan that stays on your skin until you shower off with warm soap and water. I love using this in between spray tans when my tan starts to fade, it keeps my skin golden but lets the spray tan fully fade underneath, ready for my next tan.

#PROTIP – It’s also brilliant to contour with. Give yourself an all-over tan using your preferred choice of self tan (Classic, Dark, Sensitive), then after your tan has developed and you have showered off the guide colour, add an additional layer of Instant Tan Lotion to your inner thigh, your outer torso and underneath your décolletage.
