No joke, I’ve been on the hunt for the St. Tropez Purity Bronzing Water Mousse for months now! I first spotted it at the Avenues and even took a few photos of it (here) for my blog, but didn’t actually purchase it then and there. I went back shortly after to pick it up, but it was gone, girl, gone! I’ve searched every single branch of Boots for that stuff, ever since!
Finally, several months later, I found a whole display of St. Tropez Self-Tanning stuff at the Marina Mall branch of Boots! It looked pretty new! What’s more, is that they had that same “Buy 2, Get 2 Free” promo going on! Rather than risk not finding this stuff again (lesson learned), I hurriedly snatched up x2 of the Purity Bronzing Water! Since I qualified for x2 more bottles of St. Tropez stuff for free, I snatched up the pretty one with oil-slick packaging which was in Extra Dark and the regular one in Dark. Considering these babies retail for around KD 20 a pop (give or take), I thought it was fair that I only ended up paying KD 45 in total!
On Halloween, I found myself at Sultan Center (Souq Sharq) with a few friends, because we needed stuff… for stuff, y’know?
As you can see, it clearly states “Buy 2 Get 2 Free” and also “Mix & Match“. However, just to be 100% sure, I asked the nearest SA and she also confirmed that I could in fact mix & match (each item could be from a different brand and I’d still qualify for the Buy 2 Get 2 promo), store-wide. I knew Kuwait all too well, so I was skeptical (because it sounded too good to be true). However, I went along with it and filled up my shopping basket anyway. I wasn’t that interested in anything (bad mood) up until I spotted the St. Tropez display, which showcased all kinds of new products from the brand!
I mean… they had the Gradual Tan 1 Minute Everyday Pre-Shower Tanning Mousse (which you’re supposed to wash off after literally just 1 minute!) and the Self Tan Purity Bronzing Water Mousse (Bronzing Water! I die!) and the one in the gorgeous oil-slick packaging is the Self Tan Extra Dark Bronzing Mousse. They also had the rest of the St. Tropez range (about 3 rows of the stuff) including the Bronzing Lotions and Facial Oils and even the Tan Applicator Mitts!
St. Tropez Self Tan Express Advanced Bronzing Mousse retails for KD 24
I have a deep, deeeeeep love for St. Tropez! Out of the many, many, many self-tanning products available on the market, St. Tropez makes the best! Unlike others that would give me a barely perceptive soft “golden glow” or worse a straight up orange tint, St. Tropez turns my skin into the most delicious shade of mocha! Other than looking incredibly flattering, as an added bonus, it never has that horrible smell that most self-tanners tend to have! In fact, I’ve even reviewed their Tinted Self Tanning Lotion years ago (here). I also lamented the fact that St. Tropez was not sold in Kuwait and therefore had to be ordered online (which was a gamble because… Aramex). Thankfully, nowadays St. Tropez is readily available for purchase at Boots (which is where I actually got mine) and Sultan Center (to name a few)!
