      Comments about St. Tropez Self Tan Dark Bronzing Mousse:

      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!

          I have tried all kinds of self tanners and so far this is the best one yet. It's the only one that doesn't leave me with splotches and dry skin. It also gives a very dark color that lasts without fading. I would recommend applying 2 coats though if you are looking for a very dark tan, 1 coat will give a more medium tan that fades more quickly.

            Comments about St. Tropez Self Tan Dark Bronzing Mousse:

            When I first used this I loved it. But after repetitive use I wont buy it again. Yes the initial guard color is great and its super dark which I want and not at all orange. But the minute I shower it pretty much washes completely off. It goes blotchy on me no matter how much I moisturize, using a lotion almost removes it too. Not to mention I got breakouts from it and it dried out my skin horribly. I wanted to like it because everyone talks about how good it is and it is marketed as a high end quality product, but I'm just not sold. It does work for some people and that's great but this just doesn't agree with my body.

                  I have tried so many different tanners, and none of them seemed to give me that gorgeous bronzed color. It's not orange at all very natural tan! I will deffinitly not pick up another tanner ever again! I'm in love!

                      Great product, I've used a lot of other self tanners and this one is my new favorite for sure! Very easy to apply with a mitt. Even if you do kind of a sloppy job, the color guard will wash off and you'll have a beautiful, even color! My husband hates when I self tan because of the smell, but he's never complained when I use this.

                      I've been self tanning for years. I've used the regular St. Tropez mousse several times and I'm talking 20+ bottles. I purchased this one to be extra tan for a wedding and I woke up the exact same. I will be returning this asap.

                        Great natural looking tan. I'm trying to stay away from tanning beds so finding a great self tanner is a must for me. This product is great because I have a pale skin tone and it makes me look like I just laid out in the sun. The only con is takes i'm trying to stay away from tanning beds so finding a great self tanner is a must for me. This product is great because I have a pale skin tone and it makes me look like I just laid out in the sun. the only con is that it takes a bit to completely soak into your skin. I would just recommend waiting 10-15 minutes before putting your clothes back on. Other than that- this is my beauty product staple!! Highly recommend.

                        Comments about St. Tropez Self Tan Dark Bronzing Mousse:

                        After becoming a "tan in a can" expert, I really like this self tanner. I love the color I achieve with it (not orange) and it lasts a good 2-3 days before I reapply with showering daily. Important things to do when self tanning 1)shower 2)shave 3)exfoliliate very well, especially around feet,ankles,knees,elbows,wrists, hands,& face. I like to exfoliate with sugar. It works amazingly. 4) Before you tan, apply lotion to the areas I mentioned but you don't need to apply much lotion on the face. 5) Apply the tanner before bed. I like to apply mine 30min-1hr before bed. 6) the longer you're able to leave it on before showering off the guide color,the darker you'll be. 7) Moisturize daily but don't exfoliate or you'll get patchy.
                        The only other tanner that I've used that I do like better is the Tarte Brazilian tanner. I don't care for the smell of this St Tropez tanner and I'm not completely crazy about the mousse because I feel like it doesn't spread as well and dries a bit too fast. After I use up all of this product I will go back to the Tarte tanner because the smell is amazing (sweet cocoa cinnamon) and the application is easier.

                              I am naturally very fair and I have been using self tanners for about 6 years and I have tried a lot of different brands. St. Tropez looks so natural and goes on smoother and easier than any other brand I have tried. I absolutely love this product! Just wish it was a little less expensive, because I use it all the time!

                                  No, the color will have completely developed by then. We recommend to allow 4 hours for color to completely develop.

                                  Avoid getting wet or sweating for at least four hours (eight hours or more for best results) after application. Once color has fully developed, yes, your tan will be sweatproof and can last for up to a week!

                                  Results last up to a week.

                                  How to Use-
                                  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 mousse 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 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.
