Comments about St. Tropez Self Tan Bronzing Mousse:

This product is excellent for quick beautiful color but even after waiting 24 hours before showering the color washes off almost completely after the first shower . It is expensive so most people will only be able to afford to use it on occasions since the color doesn't last . There is virtually no odor.

Comments about St. Tropez Self Tan Bronzing Mousse:

I'm an 80 ' s girl so tanning was a way of life. I've hated not tanning as I've gotten older but the sun just ruins my skin. Of all the self tanners I've used this is by far the BEST. There is little if any smell at all. It's a great brown color when applied (don't worry what it looks like out of the bottle) and it instantly gives you a tanned look along with a long term tan. Nothing is perfect but this comes very very close.

Comments about St. Tropez Self Tan Bronzing Mousse:

I have vitiligo which has impacted 90% of my body. The impacted areas have no pigment so I have an absolutely white complexion. For this reason t is very difficult to find a self tanner that looks natural, St Tropez came highly recommended so I tried it and I love it! The color was perfect and there was very little self tan odor. The only downside is that even with exfoliation, thorough application and extended drying time, I still had areas where color seemed to not hold. The color did last about a week before I had to reapply.

    Comments about St. Tropez Self Tan Bronzing Mousse:

    I've tried a lot of self tanners out there, and always abandon the bottle halfway through because it doesn't look right. This product is definitely more expensive than others that I've tried, but it's SO worth it. I also bought the mitt, and it definitely helps. I've been using it twice a week, and my pale skin looks amazing! I look like I just spent a week at the beach and tanned without burning. I put it on at night, wait 10 minutes for it to dry, and go to bed with it on. The smell is very light, and I don't feel greasy at all. There's also absolutely no transfer to my white sheets. In the morning it looks a little dirty, but after a shower it looks amazing.

    Comments about St. Tropez Self Tan Bronzing Mousse:

    I've used St. Tropez products regularly for almost 4 years, and the Bronzing Mousse was my favorite. It always applied easily and dried quickly. It gave me a gorgeous, natural, even tan that always left people surprised that it came from a bottle.
    I recently purchased a new bottle and was very disappointed to find that the formula changed for the worse.
    Even with an applicator mitt, the new formula was very difficult to apply since it streaked across the skin instead of absorbing quickly. The mousse stayed wet on the top layer of my skin for much longer than I am used to, and I could not bend my elbows, knees or torso without creating obvious creases. Even after standing in front of a fan for 15 minutes, once I got dressed, the tan streaked and wore off certain parts of my legs.
    I loved the low-maintenance application process of the old formula; it always came out so natural! The only good thing I can mention about this new formula is the smell... It smells like cake batter!

    Comments about St. Tropez Self Tan Bronzing Mousse:

    I love this product! The face that it gives me a quick tan as soon as you apply you see the color right away and it prevents from missing any spots. The slight green under tone makes your tan VERY natural and doesn't turn you orange at all. I can wear this all day because the color gaurd and you barely have the "self tan odor". I'm very pale and this makes me dark in a natural look!
    I highly suggest using a mitt! Because it's a mousse I wouldn't use with your hands or gloves. This allows you to buff it so it's visibly even and easy to apply.
    The product does dry fast but hours after you can still feel it on your skin. If I shower I can visibly notice the difference so I have to put it on everyday. Also don't plan on wearing anything white if you put it on in the morning. I also notice a slight color transfers onto the underwire area of my bras. Since this tanner is very expensive I'm moving to drugstore products.

      Comments about St. Tropez Self Tan Bronzing Mousse:

      I found this product to be quite nice for a first time self tanner user. It went on quite easily and doesn't have a harsh smell. The actually tan is very natural looking for someone like me who is quite pale some days. So to have an even overall tone is great!
      I just wish it dried a little faster. I ended up rubbing some of the tanner off of my calves in my sleep and had to retouch them when I got up. Other than that, I would recommend this product.

        Comments about St. Tropez Self Tan Bronzing Mousse:

        I have just recently purchased my third med size bottle! Hands down HG!

        Color pay off is natural and flawless. Never look over tanned or unnatural. Very easy to apply, the mitt it incredible! Color guide is very accurate and reliable. Smells almost of a floral fragrance. I feel it doesn't so much "wear" off as it does just fade. Tan fades in a very evenly, I have never gotten splotchy or patchy.

        I use about once weekly then supplement with the St Tropez Gradual Tan Lotion another one to two days throughout the week to maintain the deepest color pay off. I have used the tanning mousse two nights in a row still getting a very natural tan just much deeper.

        Comments about St. Tropez Self Tan Bronzing Mousse:

        I was told by numerous people that this product is a "must have." Unfortunately, I didn't get the same reaction. One problem was that it took three separate uses before I noticed a color forming. I like a fast tan and like to apply ever three days or so, but with St. Tropez I had to apply nightly. It also dried too fast. I know that doesn't seem like a Con, but I found it hard to spread because it dried on my skin so quickly. My biggest issue was that it turned my hands orange. I always wash my hand throughly after, but that wasn't enough. The next morning I had super orange palms and since I had to continue applying nightly it was hard to get the orange to go away since it dried so fast. Ultimately, I was disappointed. Definitely buy the small $18 bottle first. It's not cheap so I wouldn't buy the $32 bottle until you know for sure that you like it. I would also invest in the applicator mitt to avoid the orange palm problem. Although the mitt is available to purchase, I've used other products that do not alter my palm color without using a mitt. That is why I am listing the orange palms as a con.

        Comments about St. Tropez Self Tan Bronzing Mousse:

        As I get older I just can't do the tanning bed thing anymore so I've been a self tanner for abt three summers. I've tried just about EVERYTHING on the market and have spent well over $250 in self tanning products that claim to work, not turn you orange, go on evenly...blah, blah blah. ST. TROPEZ is FINALLY a product that holds up to it's claim. Since I'm a review gal myself I thought I would give you some tips that may be helpful. As with any product first shave, exfoliate and moisturize. As it is directed lotion up those knees, elbows, ankles and even wrist area ( just on the bony parts) the mitt is a MUST for 6.50..I recommend applying this product in front of a mirror. this was helpful to see where I was missing and getting things even. It is a tinted product so it's very nice to see where the color is going and will turn darker in abt 4- 6 hours. I applied the color to my legs outside in the sunlight. I think this was a huge part of my success with how even I was able to get it. This product is a nice brown color, NO ORANGE LADIES..not even in the slightest. I do shower daily so it doesn't last more than three days (moisturizing after every shower will help to keep it) They offered a free gift of the lotion but of course was out when I purchased so I was highly bummed abt that but all in all it cost abt 50.00 bucks for the big bottle (which I would take the risk and buy cause you will love it) and the mitt ( you have to get the mitt) Also I have EXTREMELY sensitive skin as far as my face goes and I did apply it there with no problems.. Hope this helps all you self tanners out there!!!
