For your deepest tan yet, this lightweight mousse tailors to your individual skin tone and gives our 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
  • Natural guide color
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. If you are initially scared of the instant guide color don¿t worry! As long as the skin is covered your tan will develop evenly and when you take your first initial shower your tan will be perfect and even. Apply before bed time and shower in the morning for your most ultimate glow.
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 the 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.

LOVE IT.. BUT!

By Paige

from Maine

Comments about St. Tropez Self Tan Dark Bronzing Mousse:

I would absolutely give this product five stars but there's just one problem... it goes on super dark which I love because I bought the dark shade...BUT... after putting it on and wearing it all night I went and showered and nearly 50 to 60% of the mousse washes off. By that I mean it goes on super dark and after you shower you might get 50 to 40% of the color. Packs a punch when u put it on but after you shower your about half as dark as you were before you washed. I still really love the product and I'm going to keep using it but I would just suggest buying the next shade darker than what you want to be. For instance I bought dark and after I washed I'm probably medium.. so I'd probably buy extra dark next time! So when I shower I'll be close to the dark shade. Hope that helps!

Comments about St. Tropez Self Tan Dark Bronzing Mousse:

I used to love this tanner for its green base so that I wouldn't look orange. I just purchased this product this month and the formula and color has changed. I'm so disappointed! The color is now more deep red and didn't spread as well as it used to. Won't be going back to this unfortunately.

      Comments about St. Tropez Self Tan Dark Bronzing Mousse:

      Best self-tanner I've ever used. My go-to. I don't waste time with anything else now. I am light to medium skin toned, and I use this dark version because it gives such a great color in just one application. Follow the instructions and you will have a perfect tan. No one has ever asked if I was wearing tanner, they just ask if I've been tanning. I get compliments also on my skin tone, with some people thinking it's natural. With this product, I've been able to have any hair color because it gives me that pleasing skin tone. Love!

            Do you need to shave or wax arm hair before using this product? Will the tanner cling to my arm hair and make it look patchy after rinsing it off?

            • Brand Expert

              A:

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

            Does it work well to cover redness or acne scarring? Or would it make it more noticeable? Also how long does it take to dry?

              A:

              Yes, it does help to lessen the appearance of skin imperfections including redness and post-acne discoloration. Allow just a few minutes for the mousse to absorb and dry on the skin prior to dressing.

          • Q:

            Is this DARK bronzing Mousse... darker than the SELF EXRESS advanced mousse 228514?
            Do you keep it on the same way with a hourly time for each color wanted? I want darker than the 3 hours from the Express Mousse. That one wasn't dark enough.
            Do you apply the same way as Express and shower off? I see the word Dark on this bottle so I assume you will get a dark color. How long do you need to keep the Dark Bronzing on to get max color?

            • Staff Expert

              A:

              The color is comparable to the Express Mousse if you leave the Express Mousse on for 3+ hours to develop the deepest color. Here is how to use it:

              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 the 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.

            Does this product make your feet look tan? I usually go to a tanning bed but I just had a little one about 2 months ago and don't have time for the tanning bed. I heard really good reviews on this product and just wanted to know if it worked well on your feet too?

              A:

              You can certainly wait until the next day to rinse off. Your tan will have fully developed after 8 hours. Many choose to rinse off sooner for a lighter tan or because of personal preference. :-)
