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:

    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.

      Comments about St. Tropez Self Tan Classic Bronzing Mousse:

      I researched many brands of self tanners before I finally decided to get one. I decided on this one and I was very happy with my results! Its not orange, super easy to apply and dries very quickly. I don't use it on my face, so I'm not sure if it works well there, but for body it is fantastic! Ps- I'm pretty pale and this gave me a natural color. I did do 2 coats tho (2 consecutive nights, overnight) because it wasn't as dark as I wanted the first time. Still was a natural color after the 2nd "coat"

            I have vitiligo, a skin pigmentation disorder that causes me to have patches of skin with no pigment. I have a hard time finding self tanners that I can apply without appearing fake. But this is the first product that I've tried that looked absolutely natural, not cakey, and had amazing results! Definitely buying again since I've ran out!!

                The first time you apply the product it feels nice and you have a great tan; however, the day after it looks uneven and orange. Your skin feels extremely dry when using this. Then after a few days I applied again and I ended up looking like an ompa loompa.

                  Comments about St. Tropez Self Tan Classic Bronzing Mousse:

                  I used to get spray or airbrush tans, which are quick and easy but unfortunately tend to make me look as though I have vitiligo when they start to fade (not even joking, one time my boyfriend asked me if I had eczema on my face). I also kept some Sally Hanson Airbrush Legs around in case of a bare-legs emergency. Those methods worked fine, but I will never do either again after finding this product. It is perfection. Goes on evenly (even though my skin can be dry and patchy), dries quickly, and darkens throughout the day. It DOES rinse off a little in the shower, but I can tell I definitely still have some on. TBH, I think even professional spray tans "wash off" in the shower if you look at the water, but it doesn't wash away your whole tan. The best part about this product though is how it fades - EVENLY and BEAUTIFULLY. No patches, no streaks. Just a slow fade like a real tan. I use it once a week to keep a non-Casper look about me during the winter, twice if I have an event I want to look particularly tan or even-skinned-toned for. Hugely recommend! (For reference, my skin is kind of a light to medium olive tone, and yes - I use the mit!)

                      A:

                      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.

                      A:

                      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.
