Convenience in a can; choose the shade of tan to suit you with St. Tropez's most advanced self tan formulation and Express 360° application. Lightweight mist delivers an all-over airbrushed glow. Choose when to shower off the tinted bronzer (guide color) to reveal the glow that's just right for you:
  • 1 hour = Light glow
  • 2 hours = Medium tan
  • 3 hours = Deepest darkest tan
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. Decide which shade you require by showering within the first three hours. TOP TIPS - When you take your first shower, just rinse and refrain from using any shower/bath products. When tanning the face, spray a small amount directly onto a mitt and evenly apply to the skin stopping just before the hairline. Protect light hair with a little moisturizer if necessary. Easiest way to apply and to keep your palms clean is by using the tan applicator mitt. Apply directly onto the mitt and using long sweeping strokes apply the finishing gloss to where ever desired.
For your ultimate tan, shake well before use. Hold 7-11 inches away from the body and spray evenly ensuring all areas are covered. Blend with the St. Tropez Applicator Mitt for a natural and even streak-free finish. Wait until touch dry before getting dressed. Depending on your desired shade wait 1, 2 or 3 hours before rinsing off the tinted bronzer (guide color). After showering, skin will have a light color but the self tan actives will continue to work for up to 8 hours deepening and developing into your chosen shade.

Precautions: Carry out a patch test 24 hours prior to use. Do not apply to broken, irritated or sensitive skin. Stop using if skin becomes irritated. Wash palms after use. Self Tan may stain. Do not get in eyes, if you do rinse well with water. Avoid contact with lips. Store below 300C/ 860F.Sun Safety Warning: This product does not contain sunscreen and does not protect against sunburn. Repeated exposure to unprotected skin while tanning may increase the risk of skin ageing , skin cancer and other harmful effects to the skin even if you do not burn.

      I really liked this. Only negative is I felt a little sticky. But that could be my fault if I sprayed too many coats.

          I am a self tanning newbie who has had a few disasters before, so I was a little nervous to apply this product. I used a mitt to apply (definitely recommend, got a little on my finger and it's ORANGE) and since the color guide is so light, I felt like I was missing a few spots. However as it started to develop it began to even out and looked amazing! I left it on for three hours then showered and fell asleep and when I woke up I had a beautiful tan. I have no streaks or missed spots, it looks so even and real. This product is so worth the price and I will definitely be buying again in the future.

            natural looking

            By K

            from Rome

            Comments about St. Tropez Self Tan Express Bronzing Mist:

            I recently bought this when it was on sale, mainly because I wanted to try a few different self tanners before renewing my spray tan package in June. Can I just say OMG !!! this spray looks so natural & really beautiful on the skin. I'm fair with cool to nutral undertone & there was absolutely no streaking or orange look to my skin
            "on me personally" However... my sister tried it when she seen how it looked on me & my results. She has more of an olive undertone & it did look a little orangeish on her at 1st but looked totally natural the next day. So I guess maybe It's a little more cool to nutral undertone friendly. It's lasting time was about 4 solid days & on the 5th or 6th day needed to be redone. I will say the 1st time I used it, I used a moisturizer 1st & it didn't seem to be so dark @ the 3 hour point. The 2nd time I used it I didn't use a moisturizer 1st & @ the 3 hour mark it was very dark. For anyone a little conflicted on how to use it. I personally feel the best way to use it is to spray it in your skin & rub it in with your hands. Cleaen off your palms with a little dish soap & olive oil with a scrub brush take a little moisturizer & blend the product from your wrists down. No orange palms & natural looking:) ultimately I am going to continue using this product rather than spending the $400.00 on a spray tan package mainly because the tan that I get from this can is way more natural looking.

            I have never ever tried self tan before. I have always wanted to try this but wasn't sure. It was recently on sale and I had a coupon to use also so I though what the heck. So I tried it and let it sit for 3 hrs. It doesn't have a smell or anything like that. Just a little cold when u spray it on lol. I will definitely keep using this !!!

            Best so Far

            Comments about St. Tropez Self Tan Express Bronzing Mist:

            I don't understand the negative reviews, unless the people are so dark they couldn't possibly see the effects. I bought a small container of the mousse as recommended by a Ulta employee n I'm fair skinned n left it on the whole 3 hours n it looks great no smell no fake tan look, no orange. I haven't tried the Missy but since it's on sale in gonna give it a try to. I def recommend you try the mousse n will leave another tenure are trying the mist!!

              I've tried many self tan sprays and this is by far the best one...I do apply it in the shower though because it's easier to wash the tub out then getting the spray anywhere else. It dries quickly and I don't smell like fake tan. I haven't noticed any streaking or any orange coloring. Looks so natural too!

                  Save your money...this stuff is terrible! I rarely ever leave reviews, but I felt like I needed to warn others about this over-priced item. I followed the directions on the bottle (I am not new to self tanning, I have used lots of self tanners over the years), waited over three hours before showering and....NOTHING. The color totally washed off - it didn't work at all. Needless to say, I will not be re-purchasing. If you are needing a tan before a wedding, dance or vacation - do yourself a favor and just book a professional spray tanning appointment. This product is smelly, messy, and just doesn't work.
