Item #: 2256002

Ask a Question
This dark formula, inspired by St. Tropez's original Self Tan Lotion, is an ultra-absorbent dark lotion containing extra skin conditioners and protective ingredients (such as antioxidants to prevent oxidative stress) to provide an even, streak-free tan. Simply smooth on with Applicator Mitt for a gorgeous, even tan. (6.7 oz.)
Exfoliate with St. Tropez Body Polish the day before you tan. Moisturize any dry areas (elbows, knees, ankles, and feet) thoroughly with St. Tropez Body Moisturizer. Protect light areas at eyebrow and hairline with extra moisturizer. Pump the velvety lotion into a mitt and smooth from top to toe, making sure you're well covered. Wait until touch dry before dressing. Avoid getting wet or exercise for at least four hours, leave on for eight hours or more before showering for best results.

Precautions: St. Tropez recommends a patch test is carried out at least 24 hours prior to use. If there are any adverse reactions do not continue to use. Don't apply to broken, irritated or sensitive skin and stop using if your skin becomes irritated.

Sun Safety Warning: This product does not contain a sunscreen and does not protect against sunburn.

Comments about St. Tropez Self Tan Dark Bronzing Lotion:

I was using Fake Bake when I finally decided the spray makes to much of a mess. I decided to go for this lotion. When its first applied there is a definite green color, which eventually fades. Plus you must act quickly when spreading the product as it does dry rather fast. I use a mit to rub it in, I find no matter what it leaves streaks. I haven't noticed the product getting on clothes, just give yourself 5-10 minutes before you get dressed. I will consider the mousse next time since I have heard nothing but good things about it.

      Comments about St. Tropez Self Tan Dark Bronzing Lotion:

      I got this product because my skin was really dry and I thought using the lotion might make it better but it is soooo hard to blend! I put it on one leg and it was so terrible that I washed it off and returned it for the mousse.

      Comments about St. Tropez Self Tan Dark Bronzing Lotion:

      My favorite self tanner! I've tried others but none of them give me a nice even tan. It lasts all week. I use it once a week and love it. It doesn't come off easy which is great. The smell is good. I use it at night when I go to sleep because fof best results leave it on 8 hours.

      Comments about St. Tropez Self Tan Dark Bronzing Lotion:

      Expensive however I am so white with freckles and this give me a great tan. When you first use it looks ghoulishly dark green. When I get out of shower the next morning it looks great!
      You must rub it in very well or you could get streaks. I put lotion on hands and feet before applying as they are dry and this will prevent "over tanning" in those areas

      love this stuff

      Comments about St. Tropez Self Tan Dark Bronzing Lotion:

      This is the best self tanner I have EVER used. It took me a while to figure out how to use it. I exfoliate really good and shave my legs and dry off. I put lotion on my knees, elbows, feet and hands. I use the mit to put it on the rest of my body and for those areas with lotion I put it on with a makeup brush. Make sure you moisturize everyday with it on so it comes off evenly and not in dry patches

              Used product on legs. It was very difficult to spread evenly. During the day it became patchy and would rub off. Color was not good for me. There is another product I really like but Ulta no longer carries it.

                Creates a nice tan, I am naturally fair completed no natural tan whatsoever, I tried the light to medium and was not happy with the color and that it seemed to disappear after 1st shower. I tried this one the dark and it's great, color lasts, smells good.

                    I love St Tropez. I've used it for years. But I think this might dry too fast. It doesn't seem to go as far as the earlier lotions. It's very dark as it says and if you put it on the day you want to wear and you don't already have some color its obvious. Which I HATE. So it makes me think I need to have more levels....which since St Tropez is the best of then all, I truly believe, its $$$$.
                    Which I don't like.
