Most Helpful Positive Review Loving this product !
I use this product in the morning after I shower & exfoliating (using a loofah) . I apply lotion on my elbows/knees/wrists&ankles before applying. Then I use a tanning mitt to apply the product in circular motions to avoid streaks .
I let it dry for the desired time (1,2,3 hrs depending on the color wanted) and then I shower with look warm water (No soap!) to rinse the guide off . It works great ! I usually try to leave it on for 3 hours and It results in a natural deep tan color ! I use it all the time but it could be used for special events as well. No color transfer ! It dries quickly and you really wouldn't know it's a self tanner !
Most Helpful Critical Review Run Far Away
Before I started using this product I was using the St. Tropez gradual tanner and I absolutely loved it but when I ran out I didn't want to spend so much on a tanner when I saw that my ulta started carrying this one for wayyy cheaper. I bought this and the first couple times I used it I LOVED it, amazing color, not too terribly sticky, and it made me very dark. But after using it a couple of times, no matter how moisturized I kept my skin, it made me itch all over my body and I would get these red, inflamed, bumpy, dry, and painful patches all over my body and my face. I do not have sensitive skin what so ever so I have no clue why I broke out in such a painful rash but from reading all of the lower rated reviews I am seeing that this problem is happening to a lot of people. Stay clear of this tanner and if you have a little bit more money to spend, spend it on a good reputable tanner brand.

Out of all of the fake tanning products I've used, I decided to try a cheaper option. I sleep with my fake tanner on so at first I was worried because this was the express 3 hour one. But the next day color is amazing. It has brown undertones instead of orange. I LOVE THIS
Really like this!
Bronzed babe from Ohio
I really love this product. This is the first self- tanner I have ever used, and at home. As a life- long bronzed babe, was a bed/sun tanner, then switched to spray tans, and now I'm on this. This is very easy to apply (I use a st tropez mitt) and I get quite a few tans out of one bottle (5-7ish). I apply at night, after a shower, and wear light, loose fitting pants and a 3/4 sleeve loose shirt, wake up and rinse. No steaks or funny lines from where my arms and legs may have crossed while I was sleeping. I also really like how it fades. My spray tans would always get so patchy, this just naturally and evenly fades away. I don't use this on my face, just my neck up to my jaw line so I can't say how it does on the face, but doing it up the neck to the jaw line gives a good contour. Highly recommend!
Natural but Good

I am a Loving Tan kind of gal, but I decided to go with something cheaper. I am pleasantly surprised. This is a streak free, glow giving product. It doesn't go as dark as loving tan, which is why I give it a 4, but it's not orange either. It's something I could safely put on for an event where as a darker shade is harder to perfect. The shade before you rinse is darker than what you're left with, but it did change my foundation shade a couple of shades darker. I didn't notice any patches that it sticks to. I would recommend applying it during the day because it is easily moved around when processing if you sweat or get wet (I also notice if I process while I'm sleeping I tend to get marks where my legs or arms crossed). When processing it didn't come off onto my clothes, didn't have a strong scent, and didn't give that processing kind of look (iykyk). Not bad for the price. Make sure to read the directions before applying too bc it had a couple of differences than other tanners I've used.
Megan from Louisiana
This mousse is very natural and easy to apply, although it dries VERY fast. I am really fair so I decided to only leave on for 2 hours. The tan was subtle, so will leave on for 3 hours next time. This stuff is great for the price!
best tanning product i've used
tan addict from athens, ga
i have tried almost every tan on the market. multiple brands and multiple products from each brand. this is by far the best tan i have used. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!
Keli from Zelienople, Pa
Too much orange! I prefer the Ulta brand, there is zero orange in theirs.
Very pleased 😄
SBingham from Alabama
This was my first time using a sunless tanner, I'm more of a tanning bed person, but I wanted to try something new. I expected to be orange and streaky but it was not. The smell was great and very easy application. Will buy again!
Waste of time and money!!
HM from Destin
Washes off the second you come in contact with water. Very poor quality….
Amazing! Continues to develop for days
taylor from Massachusetts
This is amazing and cheap!! I love the texture, it's almost buttery. It glides on well and does dry quickly. I personally like this because I hate standing around waiting for it to dry. It doesn't have that self tanning smell like other products. It gets me very dark at first with the indicator color, then after 1-3 hours you have a bit of color. BUT the best part is that after you wash it off, it continues to develop on your skin for hours and, for me, days. It gets me dark but natural-looking, I love it!!
Beth from Minnesota
I would give this a 0 if I could. After you shower off the product you look the same.
Exchanging for the Dark Mouse
Anna from Dothan, Al
Was very hopeful about this product. I thought I was going to be SOOO dark but when I washed it off (hours later), ALL of it washed off. The smell was much stronger than the regular dark mousse. I felt like I wasted hours of my day smelling awful for nothing. The color guide was so dark that I was very fooled.
I LOVE the dark mousse though. I'll always purchase it over any of the other more expensive brands.
Erin from Delaware
it was nice to put on. no smell. kinda sticky. I left one coat on overnight and it was streaky on my legs. I got a shower and it came off except the streaks. it also gave me a moustache lol. I will say it's definitely not orange.
My 2nd time using this, olive based tan, not sticky, no bo
Cryssie from Oregon
I used this for the 2nd time. Dries fast and is Not sticky while you wait for the tan to develop for 3 hours. the tan is olive which i like. looks more natural than orange. No self tanner BO. Very low odor. Color guard extremely helpful so you see where you applied the tan. Affordable!!! 2 thumbs up
25 years of self tanner and I found "The one"
Jenny from Akron Ohio
Applies like butter, blends easily, dries quickly, zero orange spots on elbows, knees, toes (always exfoliate and moisturize prior), instant golden brown natural tan for an on the go look, natural golden brown tan once rinsed off, builds well and easily controlled. I'm fair skinned, pinkish hue, unable to tan naturally, and I have been looking for this product since 2007.
Oh, I almost forgot the best part - NO SMELL!
I can finally have all the above AND wear under my business professional clothes without a smell.
Good for Beginners
Melissa G from California
I had never tried tanning mousse prior to this purchase so I was glad that it was on the lighter side. You need to build up to get a darker color but its still overall easy to work with. I would buy this again.
Great for price
Maddie from KC
Best tanner I've used!! Easy to apply. Only downside is that it dries very fast, but after additional blending it turned out great. I wish I was a bit darker as well but that's okay!! BUY IT
Not bad for the price
TenaciousD from Nebraska
Has a really awesome olive tone instead of orange which I've struggled finding one like this. Pretty user friendly, works fast so I wouldnt keep it on for the whole hour it suggests. Only patchy if its really overlapped but otherwise awesome!
super cheap and worked great!
lex from kentucky
my first time ever using a self tanner! even though it only needed to be left on 3 hrs for a dark look I left it on overnight and rinsed in the shower the next morning. I was a little hesitant when I woke as I looked very orange and dark however, I had a perfect color after I showered. wore long and loose clothes and nothing on my sheets! I recommend leaving it on overnight for a nice color. It does not look orange or green at all! very happy about this product!!
Not very fast or dark
Sarah from Milwaukee
I left this on for 2 hours and felt like I barely got any color compared to other express tans. It looked dark on but when I washed it off it most of it came off. I will try leaving it on three or four hours next time but I had bought it to be used in a short amount of time. For the price it's okay and I also use their gradual tan lotion and face spray to keep up with my tans. I feel like I will have to use this twice a week instead of once or leave it on much longer than it says to.
Amazing and Affordable!
Val from Atlanta, GA
Wow! I can't say enough about how great this exact product and brand works! First of all, thank you, Ulta for having plenty in stock. I truly stand by the fact this turned out better for me than my professional spray tan a few months ago. The pro spray tan was too wet and took almost a full 24 hours to dry. I love this St Moriz way more since the color is just as nice, if not better, and it dries right away. Of course you have a natural tan instantly with this! Application was easy with a nice mitt! Just read reviews to choose the right mitt. If anything, focus a bit more on the areas of your bod the sun naturally hits. I did not put this on my face because I use makeup daily and can layer powder bronzer on my face. :) Does NOT really have any smell so ignore any reviews stating otherwise. I loved the price of this and it was enjoyable to apply! I also used a 3.50 off coupon once my total at Ulta register reached the minimum, so it's a great value and like I said, better than the $60 tanning salon visit!!!
I was not a fan of this at all.

First time using a self-tanner so maybe was just my newbie experience. I plan on returning the rest of the bottle,
THE BEST but also the worst
Erica from PA
This is the best self tanner I've ever used. Smells great, applies easily, no color transfer and the most stunning dark tan when slept in overnight. Unfortunately my non sensitive skin hates this. I'm so itchy. Incredibly sad because it's a great product otherwise
I would buy again
Jamie from MI
This was my first time using self tanner and I was very happy with the results! I used a mitt to apply and let it stay on for 2 hours. I'm very pale so I didn't want to do the 3 hours because I wasn't sure if it would be too dark. At first I was nervous there would be streaking but after I rinsed off with lukewarm water I was left with a really nice bronze! Absolutely no streaks and no orange or green color! Just follow the directions and you'll love it! Plus there is no foul strong smell ! Truly awesome product!
Worst self tanner i've ever used
Chloe from Florida
Applied 2 layers of this after reading the reviews & actually ended up sleeping in this overnight. When I showered the next morning the product came almost completely off & I was left with the faintest tan. Obviously because it is very light it looks very natural but overall not what I was looking for. I can't imagine what kind of results I would have gotten if I would have used it for just the recommended 1-3 hours. The only positive I will say is that it smells good.
Amber from Indiana
I've tried so many tanners and this one is the best! Full color achieved in 3 hrs. A very natural color.. if you want it darker just apply another coat after the first one sits for 3 hrs. Doesnt rub off on sheets or clothes like most others. Easy to see streaks as you apply and buff them out with a Mitt.
Warning you will look pretty dark once all dry but a good amt will wash off leaving you a very natural color!
