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.

            Great even tan! Looked natural for the most part but as it faded it looked just a tad on the orange side... Probably my fault bc I didn't reapply and moisturize. Overall I liked it tho!

            Comments about St. Tropez Self Tan Classic Bronzing Mousse:

            LOVED this product. Recommend using with the mitt. I've tried plenty of self tanners before but this one takes the cake. Easy to apply, has a little bit of color to see if you've missed a spot, develops into a beautiful color that's not orange or super dark. I applied before a beach vacation and the other ladies I went with commented that they had no clue this was a fake tan until I said something. I followed the instructions and applied lotion to knees/elbows/ankles before applying tanner and only used what was left on the mitt to graze over those areas and I had zero telltale dark spots. Hence why no one thought it was a fake tan :-) Only drawback is the first day I could smell the tanner; others told me they didn't notice, but I've yet to find a self tanner that didn't have somewhat of that telltale smell to it.

                      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!

                      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.
