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


 

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:

    My daughter uses a lot of the products and this ones seems to be the best so far for fast acting within a 24 hours . And looks very even and natural on skin but she also uses St. Tropez exfoliating product too before using the tanner .

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

      I start off with clean, freshly shaved, and exfoliated skin...making sure not to use any moisturizers and as few scented products as possible (i.e. shaving cream and shower gel). I do use the St. Tropez tanning mitt to blend trying to be as even as possible. I do have a pretty fair complexion, but living in a beach town I do tan from the sun pretty easily without getting burnt (Yes, I still wear SPF though). I do leave this product on for the full 3 hours, then I rise my body and face off in the shower (no soap). The next morning I will take my regular full shower and moisturize afterwards, and I'm left with a beautiful natural tan. It literally looks like I just spent a week in the Caribbean.
      Just in case anyone was wondering, I again have a fair complexion, light ashy blonde hair, and olive green eyes.

            This is the first artificial tan I have experienced with beautiful color and no unpleasant smell.
            Another feature I like about this product is that it keeps on working even after rinsing it off.
            You are left with a beautiful healthy color.

                      This really is the best self tanner I have ever used! Getting ready to use again...I used it a few days ago but am going on a trip and would like to tan again. Do I exfoliate again and will it still come out even.

                        A:

                        On the back of your mousse bottle, you will see a symbol where it shows a sign indicating 12M. So the product will last for 12 months once opened. Unopened, it will last forever as long as the product has been stored in a cool, dry place at a consistent temperature. Once opened and exposed to oxygen, the product will be at its best for 12 months.

                        A:

                        Self Tan Express Advanced Bronzing Mousse is not waterproof, so we recommend allowing enough time for your color to develop prior to sweating, swimming, or showering. 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.
