Most Helpful Positive Review Go-To For This Pale Girl!
I have a naturally porcelain complexion and most of the time I'm okay with it, but for certain occasions I feel like a tan is just necessary and this is now my go-to self tanner! I stand in my bathtub and apply this product with a St. Tropez tanning mitt and it's so easy! The mousse formula is so nice because it blends well and can be controlled easily so it's simple to apply even by yourself. I use one layer for a natural looking tan and two for a dramatic "special occasion" olive glow. The best part is that it doesn't get patchy when it fades! I've used this product about 6 times and have never gotten patchy as long as I properly exfoliate before use and it last about a week (3 days of a strong tan and then a gradual fade). On the down side, it smells like fake tan for sure, but it's generally a fantastic product; especially for the price!
Most Helpful Critical Review Dries tooooooo fast leaves streaks
I left a good review earlier but I made a mistake on what product I was reviewing the awesome sunless is Fake Bake mouse.This St.Moriz Dries too fast and if you not super fast (no one is fast enough) you will see streaks and takes a couple days to Scrub !!!!! Off . The dark leaves a great color if I didn't have stripes . , I'm an Esthetician and always use sunless tanning . I not going to go cheaper next time . I tried twice and the first time I thought I have to be faster the next time and same results

This product dries down in seconds and leaves streaks it's hands down the worst Instant tanning mouse I've bought.
Monylsch8 from Milwaukee,WI
Red base goes on dark so you can see the how your putting it on. Light and fluffy. Barely any smell. Was using fake bake which I love not sure if I can give it up but for the price Of the St.Moriz will definetly be stocking up on this . I'm very light skinned I always buy the deep or dark shades in both. Love it.
Best Self Tanning Mousse
Spacey Casey from TX
I've tried every self tanning mousse I could find and this is by far my favorite. The price is a huge plus, but this product isn't just awesome because it is inexpensive. It just is a great product. I love it. Highly recommend.
Mandy from WA
This self tanner did give me a deep dark tan. Very pretty. My 2 issues were that the color didn't really stay as dark after the shower
(I slept in it before washing off) And I didn't have a mit so I washed my hands as quickly as possible after applying so any water that may have splattered on any other part of my body, left a light mark where it washed the lotion away. I would buy again
Brittany from NM
I purchased this because it was on sale and I have experienced good results. First time I applied and I left it on over night and it looked really streaky once I woke up but after taking a shower and washed it off it looked really good.
Best self tanner ever!
Reddgirl from South Carolina
So easy to use with a tanning mitt. No stealing or orange to it at all. I use the dark and it turns out perfect. People keep commenting and asking if I've been to the beach or do I stay outside a lot? No it's All just this tanning mousse.
Very good for the price
Paige from Oswego, NY
I got the medium and dark mousse because it was a sale and medium gives you a nice bronzed look but if you're looking for a darker tan definitely get the dark mousse, i love it! Naturally i have light-medium skin tone.
Paige from Oswego, NY
This is my first time using self tanner so i don't have anything to compare it to but it gave me beautiful color and i don't notice any streaking! Such a good deal!! I used medium and it's a beautiful natural tan color but i also bought dark so i might use that next time to add a bit more color!
Didn't work for me
Pholder228 from Diamondhead
It looked ok, I was just not wowed by it and even though I followed the directions to the T it made me itch sooo bad
Streaky and leaky
Ally from Arkansas
It's difficult to get an even application, applies streaky and thick, and the bottles leak and drip at the tips.
For the price, it's great
Brianna from New york
This product is great for the price, but can be streaky if you're not careful. It also takes a while to develop, I leave mine on for 6-8 hours even though the bottle says 4-6. But it smells good and it's not orange.
Love this stuff!!
Kyr from Illinois
I used to tan in an electric bed but with all the health concerns I wanted to stop "fake baking" but still wanted to have a nice light tan year round. I haven't used a self-tanning mousse before but I LOVE this stuff! Very easy to apply and goes on smooth. Only down side is that it takes 4-6 hours to set so I can't do much in that time but I will buy this stuff again! Very inexpensive for a nice tan.
Would Not Buy Again
ally's from Virginia
The color isn't awful but the formula is very patchy. When you put this on (yes I exfoliated and did all of the correct steps) it does not stick to all parts of your skin. It is more of an oily formula and does bleed. Decent color but leaves skin patchy and clothes and bed sheets stained.
pretty, subtle color
Carrie from South Carolina
I'm very fair with cool undertones and dark hair, and the medium gave a very nice golden/bronze glow that was very flattering. Not orange at all, very natural on the face. The bottle says it's buildable so definitely going to keep up with it. If you want a deeper, stronger tan right off the bat then probably go for the dark. But if you're like me and nervous about a drastic change, this is a good formula to start with and get used to the application process.
Mama Llama from Spokane, WA
I don't understand all the bad reviews, I believe bad reviews are coming from people who don't know how to properly prep their skin, apply self tanner and/or maintain their tan. I purchased the shade dark and I'm a very pale person. It's not orange but just warm enough. One of the darkest, most natural tans upon first application I've come across. I like it better than jergens, MineTan, bondi sands, loving tan, etc. The price is also amazing, you just cannot beat it.
JessiePee from Cleveland, Ohio
I have never used a self tanner before, I was recommended this product by an Ulta employee. She this was a dupe for the St.Tropez self tanner at a much lower price point. I have never used St. Tropez, however, I do not recommend anyone use this brand!! I ought this product in Dark. The first time I used it I had shaved and exfoliated my skin as I read about. It was tab blotchy and I had so much build up on my wrists, ankle bones, back of my ankcles and knees. I chalked it up to being a newby and not really knowing what I was doing (even though i completely followed the directions). I used this on my face and had a horrible reaction, I was red, tender and had a bunch of small bumps all over my face. I am break out prone so I also chalked it up to that and inexperience. Last night I used it for the second time and did not apply it to my face. I applied less product to the areas where I previously had build up and still, my knees and ankles look ridiculous.I have cover them until it fades, so then what is the point of having a tan! However, the worst part is my neck! I left the self tanner on over night and rinsed it off in the morning as I did before. This time I got a horribly sore and itchy rash on my neck. I do not have sensitive skin and have never broke out like this on my body before. I will be returning this today and going for another brand. You get what you pay for.
it's works great
cassie from oregon
It would have turned out better if I had an applicator mitt to spread it out. However the tan looks very nice on my skin. it doesn't leave you feeling oily afterwards which that is a plus. I recommend it for people who are skeptical about it. :)
Lindsey from Missouri
This stuff is great. Gives a natural tan without being too orange. The price is right too! I've used this for years now and I love it!
Takes a lot
Lola from Nashville, TN
When I first bought it, I had really high hopes. I followed the directions and applied 2 pumps to my legs. The next day, nothing looked different. I was still pale and there was no tint what so ever. However, I have found that if you do 6-7 pumps, you get a very very nice tan that isn't streaky or orange.
will purchase again
Tina from Dover,De
this was the 1st time I tried this and I thought it was pretty awesome no streaking or orange color, it looks really natural. plus the price is great . you may have to reapply to get the color you want . it was weird my arms got dark but my legs not so much .but over all I do like it and will purchase again . The smell wasn't terrible either it doesn't smell good but it isn't overpowering with that fake tan smell.

Ensure your skin is properly moisturized before applying. I always ensure to exfoliate the night before and moisturize heavily the day of application, especially knees and ankles.
Alyssa from Michigan
This is such a good self tanner but I will say it does dry fast so use a little at a time and spread quickly
This is the one!
Sherry Z from Waco, TX
This is my go to self tanner mousse. I won't buy anything else. I love that it's affordable too!
JeannineMarie from NJ
I figured I would try this on a whim. I have every self tanner known to man. This may be my new favorite, and super affordable. I got instant color and no streaking.
tvy from Florida
The color guide is helpful. Unfortunately, that's the only pro I can give this. ALL the color washes right down the drain except what sticks to my pores even though I exfoliated and moisturized. This stuff makes me look like I just rolled in dirt. I'm absolutely returning this.
