Ask a Question
Control your depth of tan with St. Tropez's most advanced formula yet for a natural, healthy looking tan that lasts for days. 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.

Key Benefits:
  • No self tan smell, with St. Tropez's new mood-boosting fragrance
  • Streak-free and easy to apply
  • Quick-drying and non-sticky, with no transfer
  • Ultra-hydrating with even fade
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. Decide which shade you require by showering within the first three hours. TOP TIP - When you take your first shower, just rinse and refrain from using any shower/bath products.


 

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 St. Tropez 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 1, 2 or 3 hours depending on your desired shade, before showering to reveal your developed tan. Your tan will then continue to develop for up to 8 hours. Step 5: To prolong and maintain your tan, moisturize daily, exfoliate regularly and reapply as desired.

Comments about St. Tropez Self Tan Express Advanced Bronzing Mousse:

Such a natural looking tan. I've got very pale skin, I'm a natural strawberry blonde so I don't dare lay out and try to get a tan naturally. Easy to use with the St. Tropez mitt. Love the express mousse because it truly does set in 1, 2, or 3 hours depending how dark you'd like it. I usually leave it on for the full 3 and it's beautiful- not too dark yet noticably much more tan. I discovered this product from Jules Von Hep (youtuber, look him up, lovely lad!) as he is a St. Tropez affiliate and uses St. Tropez on celebs.

Comments about St. Tropez Self Tan Express Advanced Bronzing Mousse:

I successfully used another product for years. However, after reading how wonderful this works, I purchased this tanning mousse. I read the instructions that basically required I dedicate 1-3 hours for this product. I applied it. Waited one hour. Showered. Saw little to no tan except on my hands. (Should have waited 2 hours, maybe.) I am not sure what the hype is all about. Other products, some mousse, work just as well for a fraction of the price. After rereading the reviews, I am questioning these as some read very similar.

      Comments about St. Tropez Self Tan Express Advanced Bronzing Mousse:

      This is hands down THE BEST self tanner I have ever used, and as a member of the white as snow club and frequent self tanner consumer, that's saying a lot! I've tried pretty much every drug store self tanner there is (lived on jergens for a while). This was my first "expensive" self tanner, and I have to say it was totally worth it! It comes out of the bottle a little greenish, but I've decided that greenish tint is what produced the NOT ORANGE tan that has looked so natural!!
      ***TIP: BUY THE TANNING MIT!*****
      With the mit, this was so easy to apply and went on evenly! It lasted about 8 days- I'm sure results may vary, but with daily moisturizing and proper exfoliating before hand, it really held up! It has faded so evenly- NO SPLOTCHY PATCHES!!!!! One of my favorite parts about this product is that you can pick how dark you want the tan to be! I did about an hour and a half and got a perfect golden tan that, again, lasted for over a week! Also, a little goes a long way! So be generous applying, but keep in mind that with the mit, it will continue to spread for a while!
      This is the most expensive self tanner I've ever purchased, but it's one of those things that you can either buy 6 bottles of cheap not so great tan that fades splotchy and you have to reapply every other day and will end up adding up to MORE than what this is, or you can just go ahead and splurge a little, and get the tan of a Hawain princess and not reapply for over a week! This bottle will last several months!!! It's worth it! Trust me! (:

              I shower, shave, and exfoliate. Hop out of the shower and put some non-scented lotion on my knees, elbows, ankles/feet, and hands. I use the mitt to apply all over (including a light layer on my face) then I leave it on for about 3-4 hours. I rinse off in the shower (no soap) and go to bed. The next morning I take a regular shower and make sure to MOISTURIZE (daily). My tan looks great for about 5 days before it starts to fade! Highly recommend!!
