Most Helpful Positive Review Great clear mousse, easy application, and good color for me
I am somewhat olive-toned, medium, and I tan pretty easily. Throughout the year I self tan my legs to match my naturally tanned arms, and on my face/décolletage/neck I use Tanologist face/body drops (which also work well on my body but I find are the absolute best for my face). Over the last two years I have tried 28 other self tanning products (drugstore to high end, including other St. Moriz products, Tan Luxe, Fake Bake, Clarins, SkinDrop, Vita Liberata, Minetan, Banana Boat, Australian Gold, Tanceuticals, Jergens, Loreal, La Mer Gradual tan, and more). This was my latest to try and I was extremely pleased with the nice natural tan it produced for my legs. I love that there is no color guard/guide, and I'm careful to apply in large circles (I do this the day after thorough exfoliation/shaving). It is easy to apply with a mitt (and disposable glove underneath to be safe) – the whole thing takes about 10-15 minutes max. Before applying, I follow the directions and put lotion on my feet and knees/dry spots first/then let lotion dry. After applying the mousse, I buff out lightly around toes/insoles/ankles/knees with the dry side of the mitt. I let it dry (it is a bit sticky and takes some time to dry, but is not the worst), and then put on loose sweats and sleep on an old sheet (probably not necessary but I don't want to take chances). Some color starts to develop in an hour and I leave it on overnight until the next day. It continues to develop for over 24 hours. The color produced is on the lighter side, but on me there is no orange/yellow (more 'cooler' toned brown which is great and what I'm looking for). While this is probably going to be my 'go to' tanner in the colder months, for summer time I can apply two days in a row and have a nice, natural, brown medium tan that is a very close match to my arms. My husband liked the tan even though it was not the darkest I've tried. I have seen no streaks or flaws so far and I appreciate that they seemed to make this pretty foolproof. As a mousse, it is not as drying on my skin as others, but I have older skin (in my 50s) so I find it is not super moisturizing like a tanning lotion. There is a fragrance but it is not super strong or offensive (sort of a subtle 'clean' scent to start then a bit of the usual self tanner smell, which I actually like), and my husband didn't notice anything unless he puts his nose on my knee. As for how long the tan lasts, I try not to take hot showers because I have noticed a tiny bit of color can come off on a tissue after a hotter shower (nothing is perfect). So, I dab (not rub) with the towel to dry off my legs, however, I can say this is among the least transferring tanner I have used on my legs. Fading starts to happens after about 5 days later and is very natural and not splotchy or weird. About a week later, I exfoliate and then reapply the following day. If you want a really dark tan this is not for you. Personally, I'd rather use a more subtle self tanner (one that is less dramatic/messy/tricky) and this isn't a very warm shade on me, so this is great for me color-wise and the price is perfect. As I said, I tend to want to go a tad bit darker in the summer than my 'winter tan,' so for now I'll apply two days in a row which is easy and quick. I'm not sure how long this bottle will last me as I seem to go through a decent amount just using about 4-5 pumps per leg each time. It is possible I could get away with using less but I want to make sure I get it everywhere. I rank this as among my top three self-tanners (among 29 total). I strongly recommend this if you like the original St Moriz mousse (but don't need/want a tinted color guide) and prefer a natural looking tan.
Most Helpful Critical Review Broke out in hives
I tried this product because I have used St. Morris for about 5 years and have never had problems with their products before. The clear formula and mess free application is why I chose this one instead of the typical dark mousse I use. About 20 hours after application I woke up with massive, itchy and painful hives. I have never had an allergic reaction to any product before so I was very surprised. My skin was ridiculously swollen, and I had to be prescribed steroids to manage it. It lasted days.
Main point is, do a patch test. Even if their other products haven't caused anything before.
I'd also like to point out that besides the massive, full body, allergic reaction it gave me, it had almost to color payoff. I'm still just as fair as I was when I started. Not worth it.

I was looking for an olive colored tan, and this came up as the best option at Ulta. It is not olive based, pretty orange. Not the worst I've used, but still not very natural looking. I am very pale for reference.
Meg from Kansas
I was surprised to find I really liked this. It's perfect to apply during the day or night. Had no guide color but I love that. Doesn't rub off on sheets or a white dress you wear. Doesn't get the tan smell until 4 hours in and by that time you can wash off. I use it for when I get out of work… put it on … wear for 4-5 hrs and shower before bed . Perfect
I wouldn't waste your money
Ztudo from Des Moines
I never leave reviews but I am so confused by this product. It def doesn't work in 1 hour and a whole day later, nothing happened. No color whatsoever lol I am so confused? Don't waste your money
Awesome and affordable
jul from Georgia
Works better in my opinion than the expensive high end tanners! Love this and I never turned out orange! Highly reccomend, easy to use and doesn't transfer!
Del from Plainfield
The tan is really brilliant. I'm very pale so self tanning is usually pretty aggravating, often ending in bright orange elbows, knees, and hands, but this goes on beautifully and gives me a very natural looking tan everywhere. It also lasts a long time, over a week before it started going blotchy!
My only complaint is the smell isn't great, but tbh, I'm not even going to knock a star off for it because the quality of the tan is brilliant!
Zassou from Oregon
I really love St. Moriz tanning mousse! It leaves a natural tan color to my skin, not that awful orange color. The gradual increase in color was perfect, and just what I was looking for. My skin looks healthy and happy!
It seems complicated
Chrisj4609 from Azle, TX
I read through all of it before trying it and there sure are steps you have to go through so it doesn't mess up. I live in Texas and need to shower often. I use oil moisturizers and deodorant so it makes it a bit uncomfortable to try all the tips and rules. I do like the mit and love that it's a fast tanning product (mousse). The smell is nice too. It almost reminded me of a hair salon smell. I'd like to do this in the winter here in Texas when it may work better with the sweat and oils and all the things.
Great product- easy to use!
Melanie0311 from Stoneville NC
I have tried alot of tanning products iver the years. At some point they all left behind those pesky orange streaks! Then the leftover on your hands need to be scrubbed. St. Moriz pro clear tanning mousse has this game changing idea with no orange streaks! It has this glove and extremely easy to apply. After about 8 hours you should begin to develop your base tan. I love this and would highly recommend it to anyone!
Easy application! Beautiful results!
Hollie80 from Ashland, KY
I am nowhere near an expert on self-tanners but my experience with this tanning mousse has been a real pleasure. Application is unbelievably easy - even to someone like me who doesn't have a lot of experience. The 'guide color' makes it so simple to see where the color is actually going and to make sure I've evenly coated every area. And the mousse formula makes it so simple to control the product - it doesn't drip or run and it absorbs quickly into the skin. I absolutely love that I can control how much color I'm getting. It starts to develop color in about an hour and gradually continues to darken for up to 48 hours. But whenever you've reached your desired level of color, you just rinse off with lukewarm water. This is so awesome because there's times I just want a light, sun-kissed glow and other times I want a more noticeable bronze tan and I can get both (and anywhere in between the two levels) with just the one product! This mousse gives me a beautiful, streak-free, very natural looking tan everytime I use it. No orange tint or blotchiness in color at all. And I was impressed to see that my tan lasted a full week. Even through daily swimming and showers, my color lasted! I also love how gradually my color faded after a week. It wasn't like I was tan one day and back to being my typical pale white self the next. It was a very natural and gradual process. This formula is extremely hydrating as well which I really appreciated. Not only do I love the color I get with this tanning mousse but I love how healthy and moisturized it makes my skin look and feel. I've also had no issues with this mousse transferring color onto my clothes or sheets. And it actually smells nice too! I will most definitely continue to use and enjoy this tanning mousse from St. Moriz! Highly recommended!!

Easy to apply with no streaks make my skin feel smooth
Nice tan. Quality ingredients.
Glowing goddess from So cal
The product has light mousse texture. It was easy to apply with the tanning mit and absorbs quickly into the skin. The ingredients seem high quality, much better than the drug store brands I have used in the recent past. The tan develops relatively quickly in about 2 hours for me. I used the miracle tanning serum a few days after the mousse and it made my skin have a healthy glow. I wish the tan lasted a bit longer than 1 week since I don't have a lot of time to self tan on a regular basis. I didn't notice any mess on my clothes or sheets which is great I would recommend this product the friends and family who are looking for a higher end product and a healthy glow.

I've been using St. Moriz Advanced Pro Clear Tanning Mousse goes on smooth and I make sure I exfoliate my skin the day before using it. I like the fact that I can apply it and not worry about it transferring onto my clothes, bedding, or furniture. It works fast but gradually has given me a sun kissed tan without baking in the sun. It also does not dry out my skin, it actually makes my skin look glowing and moisturized. I've used many self tanners in the past and this is one of my favorites.
St. Moriz Advanced Pro Clear Tanning Mousse
michelle39 from New Boston, Ohio
St. Moriz Advanced Pro Clear Tanning Mousse is easy to use with the included glove and works pretty quickly leaving a nice real looking tan. It wasn't real dark it just gave a light glow. I love it. I am very light anyway and just wanted a little look of being in the sun even though I haven't been due to the pandemic. This stuff is awesome and where it's a mousse it is so much easier to deal with than creams or liquids. It stays put and keeps it from streaking and looking terrible. I would buy this again and would recommend it to everyone I know who wants a little sun kissed glow to their skin.
Easy and I like it
Abellastory from Orlando
This was so much easier to use than ones I have in the past. I liked the application mitt. And I didn't notice any smell which I appreciated.
Nildaeloiza from Texas
Love the Tanning mousse! Fast and easy to apply. Fast drying. No ugly smell. No itchiness to skin and more importantly no streaks!
Easy to use!
Heather23 from OH
It's been years since I've tried using a self tanner and the ones I remember made my skin streaky and were messy. St Moriz express tanning mousse is a breath of fresh air! It worked flawlessly! It's so easy to use! I followed the directions step by step and I am so impressed with the results. I have a beautiful looking tan without streaks or orange tint. It looks natural and there was no mess at all. There was no unpleasant fragrance. I liked that the results weren't drastic and that it develops gradually over time so that if at any point I was happy with the color and wanted it to stop I could rinse it off with water. I would definitely recommend to anyone that wants a beautiful glow without damage from the sun.
I Really Wanted to LOVE you....
Meh from Fall River
This product is one that I really wanted to love. I have used a similar brand of mousse before and it was the easiest and cleanest way to apply a tan in my opinion, but because it is clear you cannot tell where you have already applied it. The other thing I do not like about it, is that you cannot control the level of tan. I took a shower a couple of hours after applying and the color continued to develop. The next day I could tell there was some spots that I missed, which lead to some streaking. I did like that there was no odor when applying. A slight tanning smell did develop over time and took two showers to rid.
It is clear and doesn't stain clothing
Con: It is clear so you cannot tell where you have applied it or if you missed any spots.
I will not use this again, I prefer a mousse that allows you to see where you applied the product.
Thank you for allowing me to test this product.
Excellent smooth self tanner
Busy working mom from Atlanta, GA
I love being tan and also saving my skin from spots and aging. This sunless tanner is great because it is clear and doesn't leave any residue or smell. It goes on smoothly and evenly and creates a nice, gentle tan in a few hours. I will definitely purchase again!
Easy to apply, streak free
Hendrika from Hilliard, OH
I love that it is a clear mousse. It is easy to apply with the spray lid and with the mitten you will avoid visible streaks. I love how it gives you a natural looking tan. The spray lid makes it easy to give you a mess free application. It dries fast and it develops a tan in just one hour which you can gradually build throughout the day. It lasts about 48 hours and gives you nice glowing skin. A great way to look like you just were sun kissed for a date night.
laylabella1234 from Michigan
I received this amazing product for Free exchange for public opinion. It is very light eight when apply to the skin and east to use and no residue after applying and it can last up 24 hours. I highly recommended to everyone and I am giving it A++
The BEST tanning mousse ever!
K from Austin, TX
I have been using self-tanner since the mid '90s, when you had to lie out on a towel for an hour after using it and then it turned you totally orange and streaky. Self-tanner has come a long way since then. I've tried several brands recently, and have mostly been happy with them, except for the fact that they left very obvious streaks on my feet especially, even when using a tanning mitt to apply it. I am absolutely in love with the St. Moriz tanning mousse and the mitt that came with it. Application was easy and smooth, and the results were fantastic! No streaks and a very natural tan color. I like that it keeps building your tan for 48 hours afterwards. I didn't notice any unpleasant smell like I usually do with other self-tanners.
The tanning serum wasn't bad, though I much preferred the mousse. I don't want to have to apply a product every single day, which is why the mousse works better for me. I like that it is a firming product, though. Overall I was incredibly impressed with the products from this brand and would definitely purchase again.
Meekma5 from Northwest Indiana
This product is amazing!! Light and easy to put on. It smells great and isn't streaky. I left it on all day and the color just deepened and deepened as time went on. It leaves a nice healthy glow that doesn't look fake.
This product is spectacular
Stephcop33 from Sheridan or
I have had 2 applications of this product and I am absolutely sold! I have never once had a self tanner that didn't make me orange, streak, build-up, crease, etc. And this product doesn't have 1 negative result. I am pleased with the phenomenal results!

I just tried the clear tanning mouse today. I can't see much of a result yet but it went on easily and seems to be even. I'll report more when I can see the results. I will post tge b4 and after pictures.
Cindy from Lafayette
I am not a frequent user of tanning mousse. I tend to use serums and drops added to lotion. I like the consistency of the mousse and the glove makes application easy. The color developed nicely over a few hours. Will use more often this winter I think.
