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.

      I always used to use spray tan and not mousse. However I received a free sample in the mail and I've now bought 3 bottles. Also remember to buy a mitt/glove with it to keep from staining your hands

        Use on clean shaved skin. Use a good lotion first and then apply. Wash your hands in between your fingers really good afterwards. Use Spangly around your ankles and toes.

        Comments about St. Tropez Self Tan Classic Bronzing Mousse:

        Best looking fake tan I have ever used! It doesn't look orange and it's a brown colored foam so you can see exactly where you're putting it. No streaks! Gets darker as the hours go on. Try to let it fully dry about 30 mins before putting on clothes.

        • Q:

          Can I use oil to moisture my body instead of lotion?
          Asked on 5/14/2017 by GG from Albuquerque

          1 answer

          • Staff Expert

            A:

            No, oils are not recommended during the mousse application process as they will interfere with the self-tan development. Always used a non-oil-based moisturizer on dry areas like the hands and feet pre-mousse application. Once your self-tan mousse has fully developed (8 hours), moisturizer that contains oil can then be used all over to maintain your glow after showering and bathing.

        • Q:

          When using this product and showering 8 hours after, will scrubbing with your soap effect the tan?

          • Staff Expert

            A:

            We recommend exfoliating prior to application rather than post-application. This will ensure smooth and even application. Too much exfoliation after your color develops could cause your tan to fade more quickly.
