For St. Tropez's most iconic, natural and healthy looking tan, the newly formulated, lightweight, classic mousse tailors to your individual skin tone, for their longest-lasting tan in one application.

Key Benefits:
  • No self tan smell, with a mood-boosting fragrance
  • Streak-free and easy to apply
  • Quick-drying and non-sticky, with no transfer
  • Ultra-hydrating with even fade
Sophie's Pro Tips: Make sure waxing is completed 24 hours prior to any self-tan application to ensure a perfect even finish. Use a wet cleansing wipe/cloth immediately after self-tan application to prevent unwanted staining on the nails and palms.
Step 1: Exfoliate 24 hours prior to use. Immediately prior to application, moisturize any dry areas including elbows, knees, ankles and feet. Step 2: For best results, apply using St. Tropez's Tan Applicator Mitt in long sweeping motions, starting at the ankles and working your way up. Then for your back, turn the mitt back to front and start applying in the same way. Ensure all areas are covered before lightly gliding any excess tan from the Mitt over your hands and feet. Step 3: Wait until touch dry before getting dressed. Step 4: Allow 4-8 hours before showering to reveal your developed tan. Step 5: To prolong and maintain your tan, moisturize daily, exfoliate regularly and reapply as desired.

    Comments about St. Tropez Self Tan Classic Bronzing Mousse:

    I really love this mouse! Couple of tricks that I have learned in using it:
    1) Shower the morning before you put it on. Exfoliate in the shower and moisturize afterwords.
    2) That night apply the mouse in circular motions with the mitt and sleep in it! If you put some lotion on your hands before you apply the mouse and rub it in well it will help you to get an even tan on your knuckles. I always wait to do the backs of my hands last, then wipe off the palms of my hands with a wet towel to get anything on my palms that I may not have seen off.
    3) Let dry for many 10- 30 minutes or so and hop in bed.
    4) Rinse the next morning and moisturize again!
    Works perfectly every time :) You can always do it back to back nights to achieve a darker tan. Just do not exfoliate in between.

      Comments about St. Tropez Self Tan Classic Bronzing Mousse:

      I heard this product worked great which it did. It gave me a nice tan. However I have a few stretch marks on my legs from pregnancy it made my stretch marks stand out a lot more. If I had known this I would have not bought this product. If you don't have any stretch marks to worry about this self tanner would work great for you.

      Comments about St. Tropez Self Tan Classic Bronzing Mousse:

      Using the mit it was nice and easy to apply. This was my first time doing any tanning product and I've only used it one time. It has a bad odor when you first apply it and waiting the 8 hours. I also couldn't get it to look natural in my hands and knuckles. I used the mit, a brush and I mixed it with lotion and rubbed. Y hands together and it wasn't working out.

      Compared to Fake Bake

      By Eliza

      from Georgia

      Comments about St. Tropez Self Tan Classic Bronzing Mousse:

      I have used Fake Bake for years and recently, I feel orange. So I wanted to try something different and so far so good! The mousse is much different from the spray but it's very easy to apply. It's a bit sticky. Which is annoying but it eventually dries. It's a very nice brown color not orange at all! And the smell is way way better! I don't feel like I smell like tanning lotion the next day which is really nice. Overall, great product. My only issue is the sticky feeling.

              How long does the tan usually last?

              • Brand Expert

                A:

                It depends on your activity level, as daily swimming and other vigorous exercising may cause it to fade a bit faster. However, typically the tan lasts 5-7 days.

              • Brand Expert

                A:

                Waxing your arms is not necessary. The formula is very lightweight and will absorb into the skin with the simple mitt application.

              • Brand Expert

                A:

                You need to shave at least 12 hours prior to application. Apply self tan with applicator mitt and wait 8 hours to develop; then you can shower guide color off to reveal your tan. After your initial shower post self tan application, you can shave as necessary. Shaving is an exfoliation method, so your tan may lighten a bit, but shaving will not remove it.

              • Brand Expert

                A:

                To maintain the best tan with an even fade, keep your skin moisturized. It is also helpful to use a mild exfoliant, like St.Tropez Tan Enhancing Body Polish, a few days after application. A St. Tropez Gradual Tan lotion or mousse will help keep your bronze longer in between self tan use.

            • Q:

              How long would you say is the shelf life of a bottle of St. Tropez bronzing mousse? I have a bottle from about 3 years ago and another from last year and was wondering if the product is still good and if it will still give me that wonderful St. Tropez glow or should I throw it out and buy a new bottle. Thank you!!!

                A:

                On the back of your mousse bottle, you will see a symbol indicating 12M. This denotes that the product will last for 12 months once opened. Unopened, it can last several years, as long as the product has been stored in a cool, dry place at a consistent temperature. Once opened and exposed to oxygen, the product will be at its best for 12 months. We hope this helps!
