Create your ultimate tan with Self Tan Classic Starter Kit. With all of the essentials you need for natural healthy looking skin, St. Tropez's collection of mini's is perfect for first time tanners, or the ideal travel-size to maintain your glow wherever you are. Includes the iconic Classic Mousse and Tan Applicator Mitt for a streak-free, golden tan that lasts for days. Plus, Prep & Maintain essentials for a flawless finish and an even fade.

Self Tan Classic Starter Kit Includes:
  • Classic Bronzing Mousse (1.7 oz.)
  • Tan Enhancing Body Polish (2.5 oz.)
  • Tan Enhancing Body Moisturiser (2.5 oz.)
  • Tan Applicator Mitt
Step 1: Exfoliate 24 hours prior to use with the Tan Enhancing Body Polish. Immediately prior to application, using Tan Enhancing Body Moisturiser, moisturize any dry areas including elbows, knees, ankles and feet. Step 2: For best results, apply the Classic Mousse using the 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 Starter Kit:

      I have fair, sensitive skin and while this set gave me a pretty good color (albeit rather streaky on my legs), it made me break out in hives. I have never had a reaction to a product like this. Definitely not purchasing this brand again.

          Comments about St. Tropez Self Tan Classic Starter Kit:

          I bought this to see if St. Tropez lived up to the hype. The color that developed is decent, dried fast and did not transfer to clothing. I found the smell of the body polish and the moisturizer to be intolerable. To me, it smelled like men's cologne. BareMineral's Faux Tan Body (which doesn't seem to be sold at Ulta anymore) is better.

                I've used so many self tanners in my time! I suppose you get what you pay for since this is a pricey brand but the tan is lovely! for someone who is very pale self tanners seems to end up orange bc i have no color at all this gives a nice brown natural tan that lasts! Exfoliate good the week prior to self tanning and you will def see a big difference in how lasting the tan is. I do it before bed so it develops overnight then keep it the way it is the whole next day to develop more then shower at night, moisturize daily after tanning and it will help keep that glow. Love the tanning mitt it makes the application so quick and easy takes me about 10 min to do my whole body!

                  This has been the easiest self tanner to use by far! Gentle mitt helps to spread to dark brown foam on your body. Easy to see and apply evenly!

                      If you have a busy schedule this product is not for you not to mention it is inconvenient and transfers to betting, the first time I used it I did get a medium tan the second time I used it I didn't see any results The third time I used it I left it on longer then it said to and I did get a darker tan still not as dark as I would have liked only lasts three days or so… I prefer tan towels

                        I recently purchased this kit after an employee recommended it when I asked for a good self tanner for a first time user. It fell short in my opinion because it didn't make me any darker. I couldn't tell a difference in color. I do ABSOLUTELY LOVE the exfoliater that comes in the kit. I also like the scent of the self tanner.

                                I have heard great things about St. Tropez, but never went for it because of the price. After trying many self tanners, I finally bought this sample kit. I am in love with it. I am pale as can be who doesn't tan. This tan hasn't faded yet and it has been about a week. I am very happy with it!

                                    Yes, after your color fully develops, the results are waterproof. You should stay a good color for about 5 days to a week.

Approximately enough moisturizer to use for a week everyday (full body) to maintain your self-tan and enough to prep before self tan application. Body Polisher: approximately 4 full body exfoliations.

                                    This varies by individual; we would suggest applying to a discreet area of your skin as a patch test prior to applying as directed to see how it develops for you.

                                  Does this have a color guard? So you can see where you have applied the product already

                                    Yes, Classic Bronzing Mousse does have a tint so that you can see where you've applied it.

                                    In general, you will get approximately 1-2 full body applications from an 1.69 oz mousse.

                                    Wait until touch dry before getting dressed. Allow 4-8 hours before showering to reveal your developed tan. Once the product is showered off, your tan will not transfer onto clothing.
