      Comments about St. Tropez Self Tan Dark Bronzing Mousse:

      I really like this self tanner. I've tried lots and this is definitely one of the best on the market. It fades really nicely and doesn't cling to my dry patches. The color lasts a full week on me and I shave my legs every day. I don't like the green tint you get before you wash off the color guide but other than that it's pretty good. It has a pretty strong smell, but it's not a self tanner smell.

      i've been self tanning for almost 3 years now these past months i've been using "Fake Bake" flawless self tanner and i always try to build up the color for a very dark tan... never works considering almost every self tanner just gives u a bronze orange looking glow but this is INTENSE dark color and i'm obsessed. I recommend this to people
      looking for a deep deep dark tan

      Comments about St. Tropez Self Tan Dark Bronzing Mousse:

      I've always preferred to have a tan and used to go to the tanning bed. As I've gotten older I'm really trying to avoid tanning. So I looked up reviews for the best sunless tanners and this was always mentioned. I loved it from the first time I used it and have purchased my second bottle. It does not leave my skin orange at all, it's a very nice light suntan color. It smells like all other sunless lotions but once I shower it goes away so I can deal with it.
      I've applied it with a mitt and with nitrile gloves. I prefer the gloves but the mitt also works okay. I do apply this to my face but I use a beauty sponge and again it works perfectly.
      For anyone trying to switch from tanning to sunless tanning I would highly recommend giving this a try.

              The color is rich, but natural. It lasts as long as a spray tan from the salon, but is much more economical. My skin feels sticky for a while after the application, and the smell is not great, but not as bad as other self tanners I've used. Overall, a great product!

                      Applied with a mitt at night after my shower and before bed. Exfoliate and moisturize only knees, elbows and any other rough places like feet. Product dispenses as a lightweight mousse and comes out dark forest green color!! Once you rub this into your skin, it turns into a beautiful bronze. I started from the bottom of my body and worked my way up. I used 1-3 pumps for each section of my body. For instance, 2 pumps for below knees and on feet, 2 pumps for each thigh, 1 pump for stomach, 1 pump for lower back and so on. It took me about 20 minutes to completely apply this to my body. To apply this to my face, I took the mitt off and put on gloves. 2 pumps mixed into my face cream worked perfectly. Went to sleep and woke up with a gorgeous, natural, deep, olive toned tan. OBSESSED. Not orange AT ALL. Absolutely the best self tanner I have used. I got so many compliments at work and people thought it was real! Worth the money and a little goes a long way!

                          I am super pale (like almost see through), so I am always looking for an amazing tanner and this is it!! I usually have to apply tanner 2 days in a row to get the color I want, but not with this! I was a tad worried because I was super sloppy with the application, but after I showered the next morning, I had a beautiful even color. Absolutely love it! The ONLY complaint it that I felt pretty sticky all night until I washed it off, but I'll deal with that to have this color!
