    Comments about St. Tropez Self Tan Classic Bronzing Mousse:

    First of all, this is the first tanner that I have ever used. I am very pale naturally and have a hard time tanning from regular sun exposure. I was SUPER nervous to use this out of fear of turning orange. I applied two coats with the mitt (DEFINITELY worth $6) after moisturizing my ankles, hands, elbows, knees, and face. I let it dry for 4 hours (minimum because I'm so pale) the color pay off was BEAUTIFUL. I then showered and noticed that the majority of it did come off. This is the only downfall. Even though a lot of it did come off, what remained was still a very natural looking tan. Because I wanted it to be a little darker I applied one more coat the next morning and went to work with it on (doesn't really smell like anything so nobody noticed) and by the end of the day it looked great even after showering and some coming off. Definitely a fan of this and will continue to use it.

      Comments about St. Tropez Self Tan Classic Bronzing Mousse:

      Being a very pale cosmetologist, I'm no stranger to self Tanner's and this one was top rated and recommend to me as well. It did not live up to that, especially considering what I paid for it. Color fades very quickly rubs offs and even washes off far after it has dried. This product also drys very spoltchy( I tried with the mitt and without). Overall not satisfied and would not recommend this product.

          I have always used tanning beds. Trying to find something to help me get away from using them regularly. First time I've tried this and I loved it. It had a very faint odor but not to bad compared to others I've tried. Love it and will buy again.

                  Great way to get a natural looking tan. Good color and even if applied with the mit (make sure you clean it regularly). Lasts for several days. Sometimes the fade is a little uneven. Not sure why this is.

                        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.

                        Though this may vary due to individual factors, typically, the 4 oz. size provides 3-5 full body applications, and the 8 oz. size provides 6-8 full body applications.

                        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.
