FREE deluxe Sculpt & Glow w/any $20 St. Tropez purchase
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:

Loved this product! My tan has lasted all week and is fading naturally. Was bronze, not orange (which is difficult to find since I'm so pale). Faded off my face in three days, but that was after exfoliating one day for said amount of time. I just matched my foundation shade to my arm and it's been fine. The only con is the smell. It's not noticeable at first but after you put it on...it'll drive you out of a room. And the scent lingers after you shower, too. I left mine on for 5 hours (directions say 4 to 8).

      I herd about and read a lot about this brand. Feels sticky. Went on green, dried with a green tint. I am of South East Asian decent so naturally my skin color is already tan. I feel and look like I have a dirty hint to me now.

      I just ordered this Wednesday! I have have been buying this same product for years now!!! THEY CHANGED the formula!!! I just don't understand why they didn't advertise it? It's completely different. Like, I look orange right now. I'm so upset. This is the only product I've ever bought more than one of and now it's ruined. Why did they have to change something that was already amazing? :(((

          Works really good I slept in it overnight about 7 hours which may have been too much lol next time I'll stick to the listed directions. I did this because I never am able to get dark results with other tanners but this does the job well!

            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!

                  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.

                      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. :-)

                      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.

                      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. Both formulas develop to a very natural looking color.

                    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?

                    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??
