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 have very pale skin with a sun allergy so tanning beds or sunbathing is not an option,
    Or to mention unhealthy.I have tried numerous self tanners. They either looked orange, took forever to devolp and dry, looked unnatural, or bled onto my bed linens. After reading many reviews I took the plunge. I am very satisfied and will not use another product now that I found my go-to!

        I've used several self tanners and spent years using spray tan services until I found this product. I highly reccomend that you splurge for this quality product. It smells great and creates a natural tan that fades better than any others on the market. You will NOT be disappointed!

                I've been using this mousse for about 2 years now and I absolutely love it. I have sensitive skin so it's hard for me to find a tanning mousse that doesn't break me out and this one doesn't! Just be careful not to apply too much to the hands and elbows. Overall, great natural looking tan.

                  This is my favorite self tanner! Gives a lovely glow on my light skin. Lasts about a week. Pleasant scent compared to others I have tried. Quick tip for mature skin: use sticker dots to cover age spots before applying lotion and then peel them off immediately after. Or remove lotion from them with a slightly damp q-tip to avoid darkening those pesky spots!

                    Will this wipe off if I shave with it on?

                    • 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.

                      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.

                    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!
