For your deepest tan yet, this lightweight mousse tailors to your individual skin tone and gives our 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
  • Natural guide color
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. If you are initially scared of the instant guide color don¿t worry! As long as the skin is covered your tan will develop evenly and when you take your first initial shower your tan will be perfect and even. Apply before bed time and shower in the morning for your most ultimate glow.
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 Mousse:

    I originally ordered this because I'm pregnant and am unable to use tanning beds or tan in the sun for a long period of time. Not only has this made me feel better about myself and has helped me to still have a nice tan color throughout my pregnancy but I most likely won't touch another tanning bed again. This healthier and cheaper in the long run!

          Comments about St. Tropez Self Tan Dark Bronzing Mousse:

          I love St. Tropez classic tan, but I thought I would try the dark tan. Big mistake. The color looks so unnatural and if you sweat or even get a drop of water on your skin, even after it dries, the run of the tan is so noticeable. I had to return my bottle and go back to the classic tan.

              Comments about St. Tropez Self Tan Dark Bronzing Mousse:

              I bought this after I tried the Fake Bake line and I initially loved this. The color is great and it's easy to apply if you purchase the St. Tropez mitt as well. The color never looked weird on me since I'm very pale. The product comes out a dark brown/green color which is great because it won't dry orange on the skin. However I will not be repurchasing this product because the formula is very drying for sensitive skin, it does not dry fast and it transfers like crazy until you wash it off in the shower..(so don't wear or sit on anything white). I cannot stand the smell. It lingers for a couple days even after showering. It's a very strong DHA smell (old/greasy Chinese food). And the big thing is it gave me an allergic reaction and hives on different parts of my body.

              Dries quickly so I feel i need to use more to apply evenly. I apply with a mitt which works great but it does pick up a lot of product. When I washed the mitt SO MUCH rinsed out. I find it dries my skin more than normal so I have to moisture twice as often as I normally would. Since I was extremely pale I had to use two days in a row to get the color I wanted. You can definitely tell a difference after first use however. I used on my face and it clung onto my dry patches and existing blemishes. It fades within 3-4 days and the upkeep can be exhausting but it's worth it to me

              Best Self Tanning Product!

              By St. Tropez is the best

              from Florida

              Comments about St. Tropez Self Tan Dark Bronzing Mousse:

              I have tried many self tanning products (cosmetic line to drugstore brands) in my lifetime. The St. Tropez line is my all time favorite and produces the best results. There are certain steps, in the self tanning application process, that are of utmost importance, if you want to achieve the best results. I found several St. Tropez "how to" videos for their self tanning products that were quite beneficial. I followed their (before/after) application steps exactly as they recommended and happy to report outstanding results. For a long lasting, natural looking tan, just follow the manufacturers application recommendations. This product works and it works well.

              Comments about St. Tropez Self Tan Dark Bronzing Mousse:

              I've been using this for years and it's amazing!! Like anything else it may take you a few tries to get it to your liking. But over all, it's super easy, fast and convenient and most importantly looks beautiful!! If it feels a tad sticky after it's mostly dry, put some baby powder on in those areas and you're good to go till you shower it off. It washes off of clothing, sheets, towels etc too.

              This is the darkest self tanner I've tried. It's easy to apply, but maybe not the best choice in the winter because of how dark it is. The color is the perfect bronze glow, I just wish it would last a bit longer. It starts to fade on day 3.

                  Reapplication may result in a slightly deeper tan, but there will not be a dramatic difference in depth.

              • Q:

                I usually apply self tanner after showering in the morning. I am seeing several people comment that they shower 4-8 hours after application. Can you just wait until the following day to shower? Why shower after you put it on? Is there some reason to wash it off the same day?

                  You can certainly wait until the next day to rinse off. Your tan will have fully developed after 8 hours. Many choose to rinse off sooner for a lighter tan or because of personal preference. :-)

              • 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??
