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:

    The first time I used this, I woke up the next day covered in itchy hives. Since they appeared overnight, I didn't associate the product with the reaction. The color it provided was wonderful. I used it again the next week. The hives came in faster and much worse. People with skin allergies need to be careful!

      Comments about St. Tropez Self Tan Classic Bronzing Mousse:

      I did really like this product. but I did get some uneven spots that I would notice. It also rubbed off on some of my clothes the days following application. Overall though, it looked more natural than other tanners I have tried and didn't have a strong odor. It also dried quickly and was very easy to apply with the Ulta mitt. I will probably buy it again, but it is also much more expensive than other tanners I have used in the past.

        I have been using this product weekly for the past 3 years. I get so many compliments as this gives the perfect sun kisses glow. I used to tan in tanning beds and this a much better alternative. I highly recommend applying this with the mit, I reapply after showering every 4-5 Days.

        Comments about St. Tropez Self Tan Classic Bronzing Mousse:

        First bottle was trial size.. loved it! Second bottle full size.. still loved it! Just began third bottle and so disappointed (personally)!

        Gives the most beautiful natural looking tan but let me be frank about long term usage, eventually this tan becomes impossible to exfoliate off entirely. When spot fading occurs your first instinct is to remove and start from fresh but it's really difficult to remove and filling those faded areas causes overlapping to the left on tan, leading to a complete mess. It doesn't look natural after multiple uses. I've exfoliated to the max and will just have to stop use and return this.

        For the perfect tan occasionally I would recommend this but just not long term. It's the only tan this far that does NOT reek of like fake tan odor.

                • Q:

                  How long would you say is the shelf life of a bottle of St. Tropez bronzing mousse? I have a bottle from about 3 years ago and another from last year and was wondering if the product is still good and if it will still give me that wonderful St. Tropez glow or should I throw it out and buy a new bottle. Thank you!!!

                    A:

                    On the back of your mousse bottle, you will see a symbol indicating 12M. This denotes that the product will last for 12 months once opened. Unopened, it can last several years, as long as the product has been stored in a cool, dry place at a consistent temperature. Once opened and exposed to oxygen, the product will be at its best for 12 months. We hope this helps!
