Ask a Question
For St. Tropez's most iconic, natural and healthy looking tan, this lightweight, classic lotion tailors to your individual skin tone, with added moisturization for a long-lasting tan and even fade.

Key Benefits:
  • No self tan smell with a mood-boosting fragrance
  • Streak-free and easy to apply
  • Quick-drying and non-sticky, with no transfer
  • Ultra-hydrating & long lasting
Sophie's Pro Tips: This product is best applied before bed time to allow overnight development. If the tan does not look perfect upon application but you are confident the skin has been covered, do not panic! When you take your morning shower you will reveal a perfect seamless glow that will last for days. You can also dilute this self-tan lotion with moisturizer to customize the color and create a bespoke glow. We always recommend mixing the self-tan lotion with moisturizer when tanning the face. Use moisturizer on a fair hairline and eyebrows to prevent any staining and use a wet cloth/wipe to remove any unwanted self-tan from staining the nails and cuticles.
Step 1: Exfoliate 24 hours prior to use. Immediately prior to application, moisturize any dry areas including elbows, knees, ankles and feet. Step 2: For best results, apply using St. Tropez's Tan Applicator Mitt in long sweeping motions, starting at the ankles and working your way up. Then for your back, turn the mitt back to front and start applying in the same way. Ensure all areas are covered before lightly gliding any excess tan from the Mitt over your hands and feet. Step 3: Wait until touch dry before getting dressed. Step 4: Allow 4-8 hours before showering to reveal your developed tan. Step 5: To prolong and maintain your tan, moisturize daily, exfoliate regularly and reapply as desired.

Comments about St. Tropez Self Tan Classic Bronzing Lotion:

Okay, so this stuff is pricey, but it's good. For a quick fix for some natural color it works great. It seems to last pretty well too. I'm VERY fair and this gives a nice healthy tan... nothing too dark.

    Comments about St. Tropez Self Tan Classic Bronzing Lotion:

    I am a fair skinned red head. I do not making be in the sun a priority and when I am, I wear a strong sunscreen. I wanted something that would take the red spotted white look out of my legs. I had used St Tropez a few years ago when I received a sample and did not care for it. I felt it turned me a little on the orange side. I decided to give it another try understanding that now I should always mix a little moisturizer in with my sunless tanner until I know how the color will react. I used it promptly a dime size amount with 3 pumps of a moisturizer for each leg and here is what i found:
    1. great smell... not that typical sunless tanner smell
    2. Absorbs quickly- I was able to put clothes on almost immediately and there was no sticky feeling
    3. I have a great bronzed color to my skin after the one application
    I will be applying again soon to add to the color, but i was very happy withe the results of the intial application. I did not use a mitt- and do not find it to be necessary as long as you wash your hands immediately.

      Comments about St. Tropez Self Tan Classic Bronzing Lotion:

      I've tried every self tanner in the book, and this one is by far my favorite. It has the perfect bronzed (NOT ORANGE) color to it. It works quickly, but isn't over the top. I usually use it once every week or two and it lasts that long in between uses. My coworkers compliment me on my bronzed glow on a regular basis, what they don't know won't hurt them.

      It doesn't have the best smell, but it's not the worst. It just has the usual self tanner smell to it, so what I usually do is put it on in the evening and shower in the morning.

      DO USE AN APPLICATION MIT! If you don't your hand WILL be fabulously bronzed if that's what you're into (I'm not but no judgement).

      Overall great product, definitely worth the splurge.

                    I was really disappointed at how quickly this faded, especially for the price. It really is more of daily product. Most of the color faded away after a shower.
                    It also bleeds pretty badly during an especially sweaty work out.
                    The color is wonderful and it smells great. Really moisturizing.
