GIFT WITH PURCHASE

FREE St. Tropez Beach Tote with any $20 St. Tropez purchase (offer valid 3/19/17-4/8/17 or while supplies last)

FREE Beach Tote w/any $20 St. Tropez purchase
For St. Tropez's most iconic, natural and healthy looking tan, the newly formulated, lightweight, classic mousse tailors to your individual skin tone, for their longest-lasting tan in one application.

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 with even fade
Sophie's Pro Tips: Make sure waxing is completed 24 hours prior to any self-tan application to ensure a perfect even finish. Use a wet cleansing wipe/cloth immediately after self-tan application to prevent unwanted staining on the nails and palms.
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 Mousse:

      Bought for my daughter that does not tan easily. This product has a foam consistency and is brown, not orange, in color. Applied with a foam mit, but I still used a latex exam glove so color wouldn't turn my hand tan. It immediately turned her pale skin into a very natural looking tan color. We applied in the evening. When she woke up, it appeared to have darkened a little, but after taking a shower the tan looked just like it did when applied. She loved how she finally liked tan! Just make sure you blend the foam well. The back of her hands were a little darker than her arms because she didn't blend well enough, but it wasn't that bad, plus we figured that washing your hands would lightened it up so it would match her arms quickly. She definitely plans to use again. Very happy with results.

        Comments about St. Tropez Self Tan Classic Bronzing Mousse:

        I've tried a lot of products in my 50yrs. By far St Tropez has worked best for me. I started with the classic then tried the Express. I went back to the classic. It seems to tan me darker than the express version (even tho I left the Express on all night)
        I make very sure to exfoliate and moisturize very heavy a few hrs prior to application. For MY skin it works better to have some time in btwn. However, my daughter applies immediately after exfoliation and moisturizing and has no complaints.
        My tan will last 4-5 days. My daughter has drier skin so hers will last abt 3-4 days. Of course if you exfoliate while you have the product on you run the risk of removing some of your tan.

          I've been wearing St. Tropez mousse for years and it's the best!!! I love the even blend, how natural my color looks and how confident I feel wearing it! The only con is the smell isn't bad but not great, but I'm not sure a self tanner can ever really smell good can it?! Highly recommend!!!

                  Be sure to apply with a mitt to allow Even coverage. I put it on at night before bed and shower in the morning. Some washes away (like a spray tan) but leaves an even tan all over. It lasts a few days or you can apply the next night to have an even deeper tan.

                      You can use this product in conjunction with the Tan Optimiser Body Moisturiser for excellent results.

                      Immediately before tanning apply St. Tropez Body Moisturizer to any dry areas (elbows, knees, ankles, feet & hands) to protect. Apply your St. Tropez Tan as instructed. For best results, moisturize daily and exfoliate once or twice a week.

                      You may prefer to apply it at nighttime, as it is not recommended to apply sunscreen or moisturizer until after allowing 4-8 hours for your tan to develop.

                      Chlorinated water will speed the wear of your tan. We recommend to use the Gradual Self Tanner to boost color and hydration after swimming in a chlorinated pool.
