St. Tropez

Self Tan Dark Bronzing Lotion

6.7 oz Item 2301299

For your deepest, natural looking tan, this lightweight lotion tailors to your individual skin tone, with added moisturization for a long-lasting tan and even fade.

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 & long lasting
  • Natural guide color
Sophie's Pro Tips: This product is best applied before bed time to allow overnight development. If the tan does not look perfect upon application but you are confident the skin has been covered do not panic! When you take your morning shower you will reveal a perfect seamless glow that will last for days. You can also dilute this self-tan lotion with moisturizer to customize the color and create a bespoke glow. We always recommend mixing the self-tan lotion with moisturizer when tanning the face. Use moisturizer on a fair hairline and eyebrows to prevent any staining and use a wet cloth/wipe to remove any unwanted self-tan from staining the nails and cuticles.

TOP TIP: USE AS A LONG LASTING CONCEALER TO HIDE SCARS, STRETCH MARKS, TAN LINES AND EVEN VITILIGO. Apply Dark lotion with a small make up brush to fill lighter areas precisely. Leave to develop for 8 hours before showering to reveal even skin.

TOP TIP: USE TO CONTOUR! This is the perfect product to add definition and contour on top of a classic tan. Simply paint then blend contours over the body.
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 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 Dark Bronzing Lotion:

    I wanted to leave a review because when I first applied it I was HORRIFIED and afraid of what I just did to myself. It looked streaky no matter what I did in certain areas and filled in every crack I didn't know I had on my skin. I went ahead and left it on and went to sleep thinking I was going to exfoliate like crazy if it turned out as horrible as I thought to get rid of it but after settling in and showering it all turned out ok. I'm about 2-3 shades darker but I wish I'd have worn a tanning sticker to see the progress because I put it all over so it's hard to see the difference until I use my makeup foundation. I do recommend exfoliating for a at least 3 days prior to using and moisturizing really well if you have dry skin. I live in Phoenix and didn't realize I'm as dry as I am but in the end I don't have strand or darker patches in the dry areas it just looked horrible going on. You will be a blackish green color as it applies but it rinses away easily and you will be bronze. I wish I had read a review like this because I thought it was just turning out like that on ME! Lol. Use the Mitt!!!!!!! You absolutely need the mitt. Watch the Jaclyn Hill video on YouTube on how she applies it for advice when putting it on. I plan to use it again and I'm going to try putting on a second layer after 30 minutes to see what happens, I read someone else suggesting that. I don't know how long it lasts yet cus I just showered and got dressed - I just wanted to share my experience so you don't freak out if you have my experience lol.

            I am a light skinned red head...therfore getting a tan in the natural sun is HARD. This product did it for me and all my friends and my husband think it looks great!
            Yes, its a little messy and Id definitely suggest doing it before bed then showering in the morning...but it's worth it.

                        No; instead, we recommend using any of St. Tropez's Bronzing Mist formulas.
