                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!

                        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.

                          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.

                                    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.

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.

                                          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.
