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:

No matter how hard I worked to get a smooth tan and even after exfoliating, my tan was blotchy and in places like the knees, it never developed color. Also, when it first went on, the color was pretty, but as it stayed on, it turned orange.

      Comments about St. Tropez Self Tan Classic Bronzing Mousse:

      The product goes on easily and looks natural. The foam goes a long way also. You do not need much. It does not have that horrible fake tan smell. It dries quickly and after a shower you are left with a natural sun kissed look. The only con is I did have to apply the product to my legs a couple times to really get a good deep tan color but I purchased regular tan not dark so next time I may go with the dark.

      *I just put it on for the first time a couple days ago so I will have to see how long it lasts and how it fades (patchy or evenly).

      Comments about St. Tropez Self Tan Classic Bronzing Mousse:

      I bought this due to the reviews. The only other self tanner I had ever used was Tarts. I like that this one doesn't have a strong self tanner odor and that its odor fade pretty quickly. I'm so indecisive over this product. It's not streak free. You can definitely end up with streak marks that aren't too noticeable inside but outside are super noticeable. The part I'm indecisive about is if it looks natural or not. I've applied this self tanner on both my arms and legs evenly and during the same application however my arms come out looking nice and naturally tan. But my legs turn out looking Orange and fake. Not sure how this is happening but it's quite strange.

        I am as pale as you can get with freckles and I don't tan at all. I am always trying a different kind of sunless tanner every year. This one might be the winner. Sometimes the tan won't be even when applied, but you do have to shower before you make any changes because this is sometimes the solution. I apply this every 4 days. I tried applying every 3 days once because I felt like it had already faded by the 4th day. I don't even care now because when I started applying every 3 days I looked like an oompa loompa the first time I shortened the time in between applications.

            I have to say I am pleased with the way the color turned out. Very subtle and very natural. I am very fair skinned. I don't even get color matched for foundation I always buy the lightest shade a brand makes. It is not as dark as the express tan but it fades more even and honestly looks nicer and lasts longer. The only reason I gave it 3 stars is because it NEEDS 8 hours to develop. And that is too long to not sweat or get wet. I sleep in it and can still feel that it's sticky and not dry 5 to 6 hours later. The express tan is just way more convenient and darker.

                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.

                A:

                After applying, avoid swimming for 4-8 hours to allow your tan to fully develop. After your tan has developed, you're good to go!

              • 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.

                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.
