Ask a Question
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.

    As far as self tanners go, this is a good one. Be sure to apply lotion around toes, ankles and fingers to avoid a rusty look. Using the application mitt is also a must!

            I hated spending so much money for this product but I needed it for a wedding the next day. Most brands go on smelling fine but the minute you start to perspire you smell like a wet dog!!!! This one did not!!!! YAY For that it was worth the money. You have to put it on with the mit. For the price it should come with one!!!

                    I did not use a mitt because I feel like it absorbs the product and waste product, having said that I did have to wash my hands immediately and scrub a little bit after I put it on!
                    I never use a fake tan or spray tan because everyone I see always has a tint of orange or has stripes. This did not look that way at all! So many compliments!!

                    • Q:

                      Is this DARK bronzing Mousse... darker than the SELF EXRESS advanced mousse 228514?
                      Do you keep it on the same way with a hourly time for each color wanted? I want darker than the 3 hours from the Express Mousse. That one wasn't dark enough.
                      Do you apply the same way as Express and shower off? I see the word Dark on this bottle so I assume you will get a dark color. How long do you need to keep the Dark Bronzing on to get max color?

                        A:

                        The color is comparable to the Express Mousse if you leave the Express Mousse on for 3+ hours to develop the deepest color. Here is how to use it:

                        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.

                      Does this product make your feet look tan? I usually go to a tanning bed but I just had a little one about 2 months ago and don't have time for the tanning bed. I heard really good reviews on this product and just wanted to know if it worked well on your feet too?

                        A:

                        If you are referring to the Self Tan Express Advanced Bronzing Mousse, the main difference is that the Self Tan Express Advanced Bronzing Mousse is an express formula: Wait just 1 hour before showering for a light sunkissed glow, 2 hours for a medium golden tan, or leave on for up to 3 hours for a deeper, darker bronze, to suit your skin tone.

                        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. Both formulas develop to a very natural looking color.
