Self Tan Luxe Dry Oil

Ask a Question
Self Tan Dry Luxe Oil is the most advanced formula in self tan. Your instant luxurious luminous glow develops into a long-lasting tan after 4-8 hours and lasts for up to 10 days. Infused with eco-cert approved DHA (an all natural tanning agent).

Sophie's Pro Tips: Allow the luxe dry oil to soak into the tan applicator mitt for a few seconds prior to skin application. This will ensure the product will not run. For a decadent skin finish and to add the final touch to your look, add a few drops to your favorite body lotion and gloss over any exposed limbs. Remember to wash your hands if product has been applied without the use of a tan applicator mitt.
Shake well before use to disperse the shimmer. Pour a small amount onto the St. Tropez Applicator Mitt and apply to clean dry skin. Wait until touch dry before getting dressed. Allow four to eight hours before getting wet.

Precautions: Don't apply to broken, irritated, or sensitive skin. Stop if irritation occurs. Self-tan may stain. Avoid contact with eyes and lips; rinse if contact occurs. Sun safety warning: This product does not contain a sunscreen and does not protect against sunburn. Repeated exposure of unprotected skin while tanning may increase the risk of skin aging, skin cancer, and other harmful effects to the skin even if you do not burn.

    Comments about St. Tropez Self Tan Luxe Dry Oil:

    HIGHLY RECOMMEND
    I have used MANY tanning products and have been a booth spray tanner for years. This dry oil by far gives me the best and most even tan of anything I have tried. It is my favorite product in the St. Tropez line. I'm on my second bottle and I actually had to go to a few stores to find it this time around and wouldn't stop until I did ! Love it. I am a fair, sensitive skinned gal and this is perfect for me because it is build-able. It is natural looking but builds up to a nice golden (NOT orange) tan the more often you apply it. Some might consider the initial "odor" bad (it's lemongrass-y and potent) but I actually don't mind it and you easily adjust to it. I actually prefer its scent to the cliche spray tan smell (yuck). If I could give this product more than 5 stars, I would :)

      Comments about St. Tropez Self Tan Luxe Dry Oil:

      I am a very pale gal and this stuff gave me a goddess bronzed look! If you are wanting a really deep dark tan this is not for you. This gives a great natural color but won't be very effective on the people that like dark tans. Sense I am so pale, this gave me about two shades darker than I was with one application. This stuff is great to use multiple days in a row if you would like to get darker. The only downside is that is it alittle messy but I'm fine with it! New holy grail self tanner

                Comments about St. Tropez Self Tan Luxe Dry Oil:

                I read reviews on multiple websites of this product and most are mixed. I took a gamble and decided to drop the money on this tanner.
                A couple of things to point out: If you are sensitive to pungent self tanner scents, then this product is not for you. This stuff smells like strong lemongrass, which I don't mind, but it does die down after an hour. This is definitely a tan-while-you-sleep product just because of the smell alone. This product does have shimmer to it which I like, but some may not. I applied this with a mit which I think yielded the best results of the application. One con I do have to point out is that it is sticky after you apply it. So if you are like me and you self tan before bed, give yourself at least half an hour before you hit the sheets. The color I developed once I woke up was a perfect sun-kissed bronze. Heads up, some of the color indicated will wash off when you shower but underneath is a beautiful healthy glow. I'm sorry I waited so long in trying it. The next night I did another application and the following morning I looked like I had been to Tahiti. This product is very build able and natural with any splotches. All I needed was two applications and my tan lasted an entire week with regular moisturizing. I'm a believer.

                    Yup! We recommend exfoliating and applying their Tan Optimiser Body Moisturiser to dry, rough areas such as knees and elbows prior to applying the Self Tan Luxe Dry Oil for best results. Apply using their Applicator Mitt for the smoothest, most even look. :-)

                    A:

                    The Self Tan Luxe Dry Oil gives a lovely deep color, but it looks best on more olive toned skins. The best St. Tropez tan for you would be the In Shower Gradual Tan or the Express Mousse, but just leave on for a few hours then rinse off. If you have tried the Classic Self Tan Mousse or even Dark, we would recommend to give the new Express or In Shower tanners a go, as the color is super natural. You can control how dark they go. St. Tropez also offers a fantastic Gradual Tan Lotion, which would be good for you also. You can certainly patch test the Luxe Dry Oil, if you'd like to see how it looks on a discreet area of your skin prior to full application to be sure you like the effect.

                    A:

                    Remember, even though it is a dry oil, it is an oil, which means you will always have a hydrated feeling! Brazil nut oil dries faster than any other oil out there, hence why it's great to use with a self tan. If you feel really sticky, you have probably over-applied, so take a dry towel or mitt and lightly buff with a flat hand over the body to remove the excess, then you will be able to get dressed, etc., without any problems.
