Applicator Mitt
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 buy this self tanner ALL the time. I don't like laying in a tanning bed since skin cancer runs in my family. My skin doesn't soak up self tanner as well as a lot of my friends. So I always buy the dark shade for the maximum color I can get. The other colors don't make me as dark. The color looks extremely natural, NOT orange at all. I put it on before bed. Let it dry. And then put your jammies on. The color DOES NOT stain sheets or clothes. Then shower in the morning and be careful not to scrub your body too much on your first shower after. Don't use any exfoliators on your body or face for a few days. Just lightly wash with soap. I WILL ALWAYS buy this! Love love love.

    Comments about St. Tropez Self Tan Dark Bronzing Mousse:

    Pros: It's definatley a nice colour, and works incredibly fast. I saw results within an hour and does apply pretty fast (I also bought the tanning mitt that goes with it to help apply). I definatley wouldn't use this product though without the mitt. It does come out quite dark and a LITTLE orange but not bad.
    CONS: DON'T DARE SWEAT WHILE WEARING THIS OR YOUR LIFE WILL BE OVER. Oh MY God. This product rubbed off on all of my clothes. Luckly, it came out of a lot of my stuff but also NEVER WEAR WHITE with this on. If you do by this product, then I really recommend applying the product, letting it sit for 10-15 mins, then applying a coat of loaton to protect it from running so much. Also if you apply it in the morning and shower at night, then it will run off.
    Overall, the colour is great and the bottle itself lasts quite a while. But it does get on all of your clothes, and the price is also very steep for a self tanner. I don't know if I will buy this again or not.

    Comments about St. Tropez Self Tan Dark Bronzing Mousse:

    I usually use the brand Loving Tan for my self tanner, since I don't tan in the tanning beds anymore. Sadly you have to order Loving Tan online, so I decided to go to Ulta and try St. Tropez tan in dark. Sadly, it fades super uneven and patchy. I do like how it has an olive undertone, but I still look kind of orange. It's good to use whenever I'm out of my ride-or-die Loving Tan, but it's not the best self tanner I've tried.

    Amazing!

    Comments about St. Tropez Self Tan Dark Bronzing Mousse:

    Ok, so ive been using this product for like two years now.. I think, and let me tell you!!! I NEVER get asked if I have fake tan on, BUT have you been tanning? Or wow you're dark! This stuff is the MOST natural looking tan I have ever tried and I have tried a TON! There are plenty of videos on YouTube on how to properly apply the tanning moose and how to maintain it. If you are exfoliating and moisturizing regularly, which is good for your skin anyways, then you will look 100% natural with this tan. I never have streaks, I never look orange and it comes off evenly over a few days until I reapply. I apply at night after my shower and exfoliating/lotioning. Didn't want to harm my skin in a tanning bed and this stuff is seriously amazing! Take your time putting it on, insuring it is rubbed everywhere and watch a couple videos on it.. It's super easy!

      I was hoping for this to be the last tanner I would have to buy. However I ended up returning it. The color pay off was not Vary dark like I was hoping for since I purchased the darkest one. once you wash off the remaining layer it fades quit a bit. It was s natural looking tan. However not as dark as I was hoping for and for the price. It did fade evenly which was nice and how do you nice sent of smell.

        Bought this as other products from this brand were highly rated and recommend but I was looking for a spray as I have used many other sprays that were 10times less expensive and good outcomes. It immediately stains your skin and comes out splotchy which makes you look like you have dark spots and the color makes you look dirty and not a nice golden tan that they claim

                  I'm going to give my experience with this tanner and then let you decide for yourself if it's best for you... It applies GREEN and within 5 minutes it oxidizes and turns into a brown, dark tan. At first, I LOVED how dark it made me, although the green was very dirty looking. But it NEVER DRIES. This is not the kind of tanner that you can shower, apply another coat, and then go about your day. I HAD to apply this at night because it made me so ridiculously dirty looking and sticky, I couldn't even sleep at night because i was so anxious to shower it off. It took me 1 hour to not feel sticky or tacky. I tried applying this to my legs to go to work, and GOD FORBID you spill a drop of water...I had a streak down my whole leg. All in all, 75% of the guard color washes off in the shower, so i don't understand why the initial color is SO DARK and dirty looking, when it washes off to be a light, golden tan. The tan wasn't bad, I just cannot deal with a sticky, dirty looking tan for 8 hours.
