            Comments about St. Tropez Self Tan Dark Bronzing Mousse:

            I had been a huge St. Tropez Dark fan a couple of years ago and this was my go-to. It made me so dark and was the most natural self tanner I've ever used. I don't know if the formulation has changed or what, but this new one did not make me dark at all. I left it on even longer than the required time, but when I showered it off I was just left with a light tan. It is still natural and even looking, but it's by no means dark. I used it two days in a row and still wasn't as dark as I'd like. This will be a good self tanner for the winter, but I am disappointed that it's not how it used to be.

              It is the end of summer so I thought I'd try using something more natural then a tanning bed. I loved the outcome of this! The tan is very even once showered off. I applied it all over my body and face and it was on for more than eight hours while I slept in it. I have white sheets and a white pillow, there was no showing that I had put on any tanning product.

                I've been using lots of self tanners for a while and even tanning beds (not good) until I found out about ST TROPEZ. All their products I've used have been (expensive) of very high quality. Def got what I paid for. This part of their "DARK" series which I absolutely love. Usually use a PRIMER prior to using this to make my color develop much faster. I personally like being dark so I Usually do 3-4 pumps all over my body. (I only use the residue on my hands and feet) it does have a very Olive green color when you apply but it is to block out any orange/"fake tan" color. The smell isn't too bad. To me it's a bit flowery/ fresh. It is sticky so don't wear this if you are about to head out the door! It does dry a bit slow but after 8 hours and a lukewarm RINSE (not scrubbing) in the shower it gives an awesome golden color. This product's color adjusts to every individual skin tone which is great. The mousse usually lasts me close to 3-4 months using it every week. Def will keep buying!

                  Comments about St. Tropez Self Tan Dark Bronzing Mousse:

                  I'll preface this by saying I have an unlimited spray tan subscription that I do use frequently. I bought this product because I wanted to see if it gave a darker payoff... something I could use between sessions. It did give an even tan, but it is not dark. It looked dark immediately after applying it up until it got wet. I saw this in other reviews but decided to be stubborn and buy it anyway. I kept it on for eight hours and when I went to shower, almost all of the color disappeared. Leaves a very natural light tan. It's lighter than the sprays I get. I don't use tanner on my face, and my body matches my face. If this is the dark mousse, I want to know what the regular mousse look like! I can't review what it's is like after a few days because right now I'm on my way to the tanning salon. It's too subtle for me. If you are looking for a natural sun kissed look - this is for you. It doesn't smell bad, it's easy to apply, its even, but it's subtle. I'm really not sure why it's being marketed as a dark product.

                    Comments about St. Tropez Self Tan Dark Bronzing Mousse:

                    I have been a loyal St. Tropez fan for years. The bottle always lasts so long (and I use very frequently) and it's the best color. I have tried the regular St. Tropez mouse and lotion, and the dark mouse and lotion. My favorite is the dark mouse. The mouse just goes on better for me.

                    I put it on after I shower at night, sleep on it, wake up nice and dark. I don't use this on my face because I'm afraid it would make me break out since it's not specifically designed for face. All you have to do is use a good face bronzer (if you prefer not to tan your face with a product) and it'll match.

                    Also, I don't use the mitt or gloves because I think it's a waste of money...yes your hands will look scary at first, but all you have to do is use a BAR SOAP (not the liquid kind), right when you're done applying it to your body. It's literally a miracle worker. The tan color on your hands instantly disappears. Hope this helps :)

                    • Q:

                      If i apply this tanner let it sit over night, shower the next day, and then decide to go swimming a day later won't the chlorine fade my tan?? Because that has happened to me with prior self tanners I've used and i was really upset about it because I went into the pool so nice and tan and came out white again!! So I was curious as to whether this particular product will have the same reaction to chlorine??

                        A:

                        If you are seeking moderate color on fair skin, you may prefer the Self Tan Classic Bronzing Mousse. However, if you are seeking a deep tan, you can certainly use the Dark formula.

                        Allow 4-8 hours after application before showering to reveal your developed tan. After that, you can go in the water with no adverse effects.

                        Step 1: Exfoliate 24 hours prior to use. Immediately prior to application, moisturize any dry areas including elbows, knees, ankles and feet.
