Most Helpful Positive Review Really a great product!
I've tried numerous store brand tanning products (Neutrogena, Loreal, Jergens) as well as other brands like St. Moriz (awful...trust me) and St. Tropez is by far the best. I give it 4 stars because nothing is perfect, however, if you are someone who uses faux tanners a lot, you shouldn't have too many problems with this. I use it by showering and exfoliating, applying lotion and then using the mousse mitten, I apply one good coat all over the areas of my body I choose, and sometimes a second coat if i want to look darker. It is true the product has a green undertone, but you do not see it once it is blended onto the skin. The green undertone creates that natural "olive skin" look--unlike those other orange-y undertoned products. Let it sit for at least 4-6 hours before working out, going out on a rainy day, or showering. Showering will cause the coast to wash off, however a really lovely clean tan color is left afterward. I have fair skin, blue eyes and brown hair, and this product looks really nice on me. My family and friends agree that the color really does look quite natural. I have been using this product since December 2016--it's wonderful!
Most Helpful Critical Review Becomes scaly and flaky after a few uses
I bought this product about a month ago. As soon as I applied it, I loved the color. It does fade pretty quickly so you need to apply it at least twice a week if you want to maintain a good tan. However, I've noticed that the more I use it, my skin becomes scaly and flakey. Yes, I moisturize daily and exfoliate before applying the product. I attached a picture to show what I mean by "scaly and flakey." Also, if I rub my skin, it comes off. It's so upsetting because I love the color of this product, but I can't walk around with my skin looking like I have some kind of disease. If anyone knows how to fix this please let me know!

I have cool toned very pale/porcelain skin (can't tan my skin ever, only get sunburns) and finding a tanning product that doesn't make me orange is difficult. This is now my go to self tanner because it looks so natural! It's buildable as well. I apply with the mitt and it comes out really even. Love this!
I would but this product again!
Nikki from USA
Love that it does leave streaks and scent is pleasant!
jaden latera from knoxville
i love this product! definitely recommend. great for last minute quick and easy tanning!
Ehh. Not my favorite.
Nik Nik from Georgia
I had heard good things about St.Tropez but was not impressed. Smell is strong, the color payoff isn't much unless your fair skin, hard to apply considering it goes on clear, and it washes off after just a few days. I can see the tan coming off on my towel when I dry after a shower. Not very impressed with product .
Definitely buying again!!
Alicia from Alabama
I love this tanner. I'm kind of new to self tanning but this is very easy to apply (get the mitt!) and it looks great. I've gotten several compliments when I use it. Normally it lasts a week before I have to reapply.
Ali from Portland Oregon
I love the color it looked so good for a day but then the next day I noticed I had hives all over my body from head to toe , thousands of little red bumps that are itchy and just uncomfortable, my skin is sort of sensitive but there is obviously something in this product that shouldn't be in here because I've used many other tanners and they never gave me such bad a rashes . I was thinking it could be only I'm allergic to something in it but I see many woman have had the same problem.
I would buy this again
Kelly from Hopewell Junction
This is so easy to apply, great color, not orange, bronze look immediately.
Crowesgrl from Virginia
I am fair skinned and was very nervous a out using this product (first time self tanning in a very long time) I absolutely loved it! It has a nice smell and applies easily. It gives a very natural tan look. I will buy again and again!
A from New York
When I started using this I really loved the color and easy application. Fast forward through using it for a month and a half and the last two applications I started to develop a really bad hot, burning itchy and bumpy rash that lasted for days with no relief. I can no longer use this product. If you're skin isn't sensitive I recommend, otherwise avoid at all costs.
Not worth the money
LinZ from Cleveland, TN
Ulta employee recommended me this brand since it was their best seller. I had also seen a lot of people recommending this. The color at first is a gorgeous bronze but as soon as I showered almost all of it washed off!!! It leaves me patchy and like I said, color fades within 1-2 days, leaving me a blotchy bronzy orangey color. I did everything: exfoliatied, shaved, moisturized....tried it for a month, nothing changed. I will save this for the winter for a day tan. Although I am a first time self tanner, I guess this formula was not for me.
I am Hispanic and have olive/neutral undertones. My skin is not overly dry either. I thought it was me but I tried coco and eve in dark and the results were SO much better.
Only tanning mousse I'll use
KT from MN
This is the only tanning mousse that does not turn orange on my skin! Gives a nice healthy glow. Easy to apply with a mitt, I recommend St.Tropez mitt for application. I feel like I have to apply this product every other day to maintain the color or use a self tanning lotion where is fades faster. Still a great product.
Rash reaction from Denver,Co
Decided to try new tanner from fake bake . Woke up following morning to hives / rash all over!
Ariana from Florida
I have very fair skin and I'm new to self tanning, and I would buy this product again. I didn't find it too orange for my skin, I found that the product was just right.
Tera from Ohio
This self tanner has been one of my favorites. Smells good and applies well. I only gave four stars however because it will leave uneven marks on hands and feet if not super careful about how you're applying it on creases. And as with all tanners in my opinion do not use this without a tan mitt.
touch of sun
Gamecock lady from SC
I use this for inside tanning. It dries quickly. However, it does not apply evenly on the feet. I had to was my hands 4 to 5 times to remove it from the palms.
Best Self Tanner I have ever used
Laraleigh from Tennessee
I have tried every self tanner on the market. This is the best I have ever used!
Allergic reaction to self tanner
Sara from Missouri
I have been using self tanner for years and decided to try a new one which was the St. Tropez classic self tanning foam. Initially after I applied it I really liked it, but then woke up the next morning with hives all on my arms. If you have sensitive skin I would not recommend this product.
Fast, Dark, Tan
TC from NC
I have to say I am not IN LOVE with this product but it does work well. It has a tad too much of a bronzy, dare I say, orange glow.. but blends well, great coverage, and quick results.
Looks great and was easy
Gierzy from Duluth mn
Great but wanted more
Joze from Nebraska
I have been self tanning for years and I had heard great reviews on this product. After trying it out I noticed it gave me a very soft, natural tan. At the time I was in the market for a darker color. If you are looking for a soft tan that gives you a sun kissed look, this is the product for you. For myself, I will be buying the darker shade!
KT from MN
I love this product and always keep coming back to it! Very easy to apply and nice looking tan. I am very fair and burn easily, but this blends nicely.
Hands Down The Best Self Tanner For Gingers!
Pebbles from Maryland
OMG, finally someone has made a product for red heads that doesn't leave us with an orange fake tan look! The last 2 years I have been using St. Tropez and found it is the best product hands down for a natural looking tan without spending hours basking in the sun and exposing your self to harmful uv rays. The mousse is a weird brownish black color with the typical fake bake smell, but it's not over powering. It goes on smoothly, however, I recommend purchasing a separate glove to apply. I found the St. Tropez glove does not provide the smoothest application and instead opt to use a velour like glove that gives exceptional results. The only downfall is the amount of time it takes for the product to completely dry once applies. Overall, this is a 5 star product and you honestly won't find a better self tanner out there, esp if you are a ginger.
Too Orange for my pale skin!
Irish gal from Charlotte
So I have never self tanned in my life and I purchased this product as a start. There's so many good reviews for this brand specifically so I figured I'd try this first.
I exfoliated and shaved everything, moisturized the areas that get the most dry before applying. I used the mitt too for even application. I let it sit on my skin for 8 hours and washed it off just like the instructions said.
But I am HIGHLY disappointed in how this turned out. My feet, my elbows, my wrists, my chest area ALL orange. I have extremely pale skin and I just wanted to get a tan for the summer without tons of sun exposure.
*sigh* Oh well, guess I'll keep trying!
K from Anderson
Lasts while. Easy application and I always get compliments when it's on.
Nice tan look
Irene from Oro Valley
Trying to stay out of sun more and this was recommended for my legs. Went on easy. Nice natural color and a bit of a nice shine. Dried fast. Was surprised came off on sheets. Sales said washes off easy. Hope so.
