Most Helpful Positive Review Great product!
I'm really pale and I've used the original St. Tropez years ago and loved it. I decided to try out this different formula. It was really greasy while I waited the suggested 1-3 hours before rinsing. I was naked for 2 1/2 hours waiting for it to dry a little so I could put a robe on. Didn't happen. I rinsed and I didn't notice any difference in my skin tone. The next morning it definitely proved itself! It gave me a very natural, even and beautiful color! This is definitely a great product! The glove is ideal.
Most Helpful Critical Review Does wash of food
I love how it looks when it goes before you are even near water. Th problem is even if you wait around three hours it does not give that deep rich tan that they talk about. That deep rich tan is on after you put it on and you're like wow.. walk around the house yelling I'm thrilled I don't look like the walking dead anymore.. but then you jump into the shower and the smile quickly disappears as your glorious colour washes down into drain after you shower. There is a very faint hint of something that's left behind like they state. but unfortunately that does not go into a dark enough tan that it states that it would be if you keep it on for the three hours. So I prefer the basic one. Yes'm you have to wait 8 hourbefore you swim. And yes it still comes a half a bit too. But i dont look like an orange and that's why I'll stick with it.

If you want just the slightest bit of color then this is for you. If you want to be dark then get loving tan. I found that the smell was nice but didn't really like the application of the product. I slept in it and it didn't provide me with the tan that Loving Tan does. I will not repurchase.

I bought 2 because the reviews were so great. I'm returning them after one use. I'm very pale. I've had this on for an hour & 1/2, I'm the same color I was when I put it on, it hasn't deepened at all AND it's STILL STICKY. This stuff is gross. Do not recommend.
great until you wash
#notoskincancer #whodoesn'tlookgoodtan from Elgin, SC
looks lovely until you shower it off. by the second shower it's half off in some areas. I've been using it for this entire summer and wanted so badly to love it but it isn't worth it with how quickly it disappears!
Jenna SQ from Lafayette, LA
CONS: Takes too long to dry. Smells like an old purse with lingering perfume. Fades unevenly. Unnatural color (yellow). PROS: Color deepens as the day progresses. (I've used this one for about two years. Switched to Loving Tan Deluxe Bronzing Mousse and it's more natural, dries quickly, fades beautifully, and smells like chocolate)
Worst self tanner
Hailey from Lutz Florida
You leave it on for 3 hours (as told on the can) and it looks wonderful. The minute you step into the shower, it washes away completely. So disappointing and a waste of my money.
Gave it a Try - Sticking to Loving Tan
Lena from Madison, WI
I really wanted this to work. One of my biggest qualms with other self tanners is the awful smell they leave on your skin for days. This one smells great. I also liked the idea of one tanner that darkens with however long you leave it on… express says by the three hour mark you'll get DARK. That didn't happen, and I tried it twice, both times for 3-4 hours.
Maybe I've been spoiled by using Loving Tans ultra dark express, which works wonders but is stanky. I was expecting similar results. I actually BARELY look any darker after using St Tropez Express mousse. And it cost almost the same.
Application was normal except again, with loving tan you can layer the mouse once it dries, if you wanna just get that extra coverage. With St Tropez if you try to reapply after half an hour the first later flakes off..
It must work for some people considering the good reviews but it's not for me. Will take loving tan and their stanky stank over this.
Best self tanner!
Meg from USA, Texas
I've used many St. Tropez products but this one is my favorite! I love the color and how little time it takes to look like you've been vacationing on the beach for a week lol
Jen from Des Moines, Iowa
For the price I was expecting to be blown away. This is comparable to Ulta's express tanning mouse, which is a fraction of the price. I also feel like most of the tan washed away after one shower. Not a horrible product, but definitely not worth the cost.
Washes off quickly
Smileygdaughter from Missouri
I have used this self tanner a few times. Don't get me wrong the color is perfect and leaves me with a nice bronze glow.. but only for a day, then it washes right off. It does take forever to dry, and feels sticky. It is kind of expensive so for special events and need of a quick tan, then this is the mousse for you, but for longer tan I would go with something a little more cost efficient.
Washes off right away
Conchita from Amarillo, TX
Pretty when rubbed on, but washes off in the shower. I then spent a week trying to decide on if I was tan or not so applied it a week later and thought ok it is there right? So I applied it again after another week (because why is this expensive bottle making me question myself). I really can't tell if it does anything. I mean maybe a very slight tan, but definitely not as good as my cheap jergens does.
Tyraachenelle from Covington
So the price for the color which is a tad orange and obviously fake not my favorite but if a tad orange is not a problem for you you'll like it .
Love this but..
Sam from Denver Colorado
Love this self tanner. Doesn't streak or look orange. HOWEVER..this stuff takes forever to dry. I've been standing in front of a fan for half an hour 🥴
Kales from Florida
I'm relatively new to self tanning (last year or so) and this product works pretty well for me! I recently tried out the St.Tropez 8 hour mousse and I found that the express works much better. I liked the color a lot better.
LOVE THIS PRODUCT!
Chappie from Paducah, KY
This product doesn't smell like most self tanners. It doesn't leave you orange and it works great! This has now become my new go to self tanner.
Grace200 from Indiana
I normally get an airbrush tan & spend $50+ dollars a week because I can never find a self tanner that gets me super dark but THIS IS AMAZING!!! I am SUPER pale & 2 layers of this had me EXTREMELY dark. I slept in it the first night, woke up, showered, & then added another layer later that night & washed it off in the morning. You can add up to 3 layers, but 2 is as much as I would do. I noticed it gradually got darker throughout the day after washing it off & I'm seriously obsessed. I moisturized ONCE & it's just now starting to fade but only on my hands & it's the 6th day! DO NOT hesitate to buy this!
Love this product best self tan out there
Stephy from Surprise AZ
This self tan is the best out right now stays on a week and streak free
Tyra from Covington
So first of all price is ridiculous for quality I don't have money like that I was hoping I'd be blown away by results I work to hard for this .
Great color but ended up with a rash
Dom from TN
I'm a first time self tan user and I will say the color is great, it is very natural, but nothing like the advertisement. I only got about two shades darker and I left it on for the full 3 hours and rinsed with cool/lukewarm water then went to bed. However, when woke up I noticed that a rash started on my forearms and it continued to worsen throughout the day and spread to my upper arms and I am also seeing signs of a rash on my legs.
Now I don't believe I have sensitive skin as I have never had a reaction like this to any other products or even detergents.
Ultimately, it seems to work great for some but sadly I will be returning this product.
Sticky but not bad at all
Bee from California
The tan stays sticky so it tends to setting into lines and creases in your skin. Other than that, the color is very pretty. It's not orange at all. I also suggest using a light moisturizer on your arms otherwise it clings to any dry skin.
Wouldn't buy again.
Big Steve from Erm..where I live.
For the price, I expected higher quality.
Even with the lightest application with a quality mitt, it was sticky for the entire time I had it on.
It's not as bad as others I've tried, but it also has a slightly orange-y tone*, despite having green undertones (which seems even more odd, since I have skin with olive-undertones).
*I asked coworkers what my tan looked like, and more than a few said a bit on the orange side.
If you work at a job where you sweat a lot, it will transfer onto your clothes, but I'd expect that from any self-tanner.
Two stars because the color goes on evenly, and lasts a long time under normal circumstances.
Second time purchasing…great self tanner
Dibro from Grsc
Use a mit🙂
Will use again and again
Linds from PA
I'm never one to write reviews but this product deserves it. I was so skeptical about trying this and it's blew my expectations out of the water. It doesn't leave you feeling sticky while you wait your 1-3 hours and when you rinse it off it leaves you with the most gorgeous golden tan. It also really does continue to tan you over the next eight hours after you rinse. I have actually gotten multiple comments/compliments on how tan I am and when I tell people it's a self tanner they don't even believe me. Can't recommend this product enough. I will be using for the rest of the summer and onward.
Les2thalee from Dallas
Use it after taking a shower after applying lotion.
newbie from Florida
For a first time self tanner, this stuff was amazing! I'm pretty fair so I left it on for just under 2 hours since it was my first try, when I washed it off I didn't think it was going to do much based on my skin color at that point. Went to sleep, woke up in the morning and WOW! I can't believe how much color I actually got and how natural the tone is for me - not too orange not too green. I used the St. Tropez double sided mitt to apply it and it blended beautifully. I also used an old buffing foundation brush to blend out my face, hands and feet and would definitely recommend that. My friend that's been self tanning for years said it looks so good! Overall I'm super pleased and will definitely be using again!
Not for long term tan
Jessie from KY, USA
I'm naturally very fair and use tanners almost year round. i've used it all. I've went through two bottles of this stuff before ever writing a review. This is such a beautiful tanner for a special occasion or a one to two day event, but this is not your tanner for any longer than that. It's a very natural looking bronze / tan, but I notice that on or after the third day
