St Tropez Self Tan Extra Dark Bronzing Mouse is a lightweight, velvety mousse that blends easily for your darkest, most natural looking tan. Its deep guide color leaves a soft, smooth, flawless finish on the skin that ensures an even, streak free tan that lasts for days and fades evenly. With St Tropez's new Quick Intelligent Tan Development System, it can be rinsed off just after 4 hours for an intense dark bronze or after 8 hours, for your ultimate "extra dark" tan that will make you look like you've been on a 2 week beach vacation. Suitable for all skin tones and clinically proven to moisturize all day, this is their fastest, deepest, most natural looking tan yet.
Step 1: Exfoliate 24 hours prior to use. Moisturize dry areas including elbows, knees, ankles, feet and any light hair.
Step 2: For best results, apply using our tan applicator mitt in upward circular motions to the skin, ensuring all areas are covered and lightly glide excess tan over the hands and feet.
Step 3: Wait until touch dry before getting dressed.
Step 4: Before getting skin wet, allow 4 hours for a flawless dark bronze or 8 hours for your darkest, deepest, yet most natural looking tan.
Step 5: To prolong and maintain your tan, moisturize daily, exfoliate regularly and reapply as required.

Precautions: Carry out a patch test 24 hours prior to use. Wash palms after use. Self tan may stain. Do not apply to broken or irritated skin. Stop if irritation occurs. Do not get in eyes, if you do rinse well with water. Avoid contact with lips. Store below 30°C/86°F. Sun safety warning: This product does not contain a sunscreen and does not protect against sunburn. Repeated exposure of 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.

New fav-and I've tried them all!

By Dee

Comments about St. Tropez Self Tan Extra Dark Bronzing Mousse:

Total fake tan junkie. I've tried them all. This is the closest I've gotten to looking like a professional spray tan. It's a beautiful color. I like that it's easier than the other st tropez tanners to blend because it doesn't dry as fast. So I can go back over a spot if I need to without it looking weird. I can't do that with other ones. I like the other st tropez ones alright, but never could get a darker color I really liked. I'm naturally white as a ghost. This one is the winner. I will continue to buy this one!!

      Comments about St. Tropez Self Tan Extra Dark Bronzing Mousse:

      I've always used St. Tropez and was super excited when I saw they came out with extra dark. However, it's the lightest result I've ever had from a self tanner. I left it on over night and when I washed it off in the shower the next day, I could hardly tell a difference. After a few days it started to turn orange, create dots all over my legs where my leg hairs grow (so it looked like I had 5 o'clock shadow on my legs) and started getting so patchy. Oh and did I mention that it was ORANGE I could tell when I was applying that it was going to look orange. The formula didn't look as green as the others as it was going on. Very sad about this product.

      Alllll Brown, not "bronze"

      By Bree

      from Texas

      Comments about St. Tropez Self Tan Extra Dark Bronzing Mousse:

      This is the best one I have ever used! It's super dark and has ZERO orange like most self tanners. I usually cannot apply mousses evenly, but this one was a lot easier for me to apply and blend! (I think because it didn't dry down as fast as others) It
      Also doesn't leave that "fresh fake tan" smell! You know? That smelly smell... that smells.. smelly? I'm obsessed with this stuff, and I will buy again and again!

          It goes on very dark and streaky. It's almost impossible to smooth out evenly. I've used several self tanners before and none of them have been difficult to apply like this. I have splotches all over my legs. I'm exchanging it for a diffident kind asap!

              By tre

              from evansville

              Comments about St. Tropez Self Tan Extra Dark Bronzing Mousse:

              I normally use the Express tan and decided to try this one. It goes on super dark/almost black. Seemed way more messy than usual. Very hard to blend in and left splotches so i'd try to fix them and it'd look even worse. I had certain spots on me where I ended up just looking dirty or bruised very badly. When i washed off in shower, i could see it coming off of me like it was muddy water. The end results look the exact same as my express tan.

                  Comments about St. Tropez Self Tan Extra Dark Bronzing Mousse:

                  Honestly, I WOULD NOT recommend this product to ANYONE. It's complete garbage and I'm taking it back to return it. the color applied unevenly and blotchy. It made my skin look dirty and while I was applying it, since it was blotchy and uneven I was trying to fix it by going over it and it just smeared and removed the color I had just applied. I'm an avid tanner, have tried many other self tanning products and I also own my own airbrush tanning business so I have plenty of experience with tanning/self tanning/tanning solutions, and this is a horrible product. St Tropez has gone down hill and I am so unimpressed with their products. I will never buy something from them again because my experiences with their brand are just horrible now. Save your money, invest in a bottle of Loving Tan if you choose to use a self tanner. The color is better, the application is better, the product is better. So disappointed in this product though.

                  By Steph A.

                  from NH

                  Comments about St. Tropez Self Tan Extra Dark Bronzing Mousse:

                  I've used this three times now since buying it and I love it! I normally have olive skin and tan very easily. Sometimes I want a little extra boost especially with this winter dragging on! This product is amazing! I've used St Tropez in the past as well as other brands and this one is by far my favorite. The color guard really helps and when I leave on for 8+ hours I end up with a gorgeous, natural looking tan! Easy to apply, looks amazing once you rinse off. Only con is I feel like it takes quite awhile to dry, but for the end result you get it is so so worth it!

                    My hairdresser had used it the night before she did my hair, and I complimented her tan (it just looked like she had just gotten back from vacation), and when she said it was from a bottle I couldn't believe it. I had NEVER had good luck with that (and had not tried in several years). So I got brave and tried it that night, and the next day I had family photos! It worked GREAT!!!!! I have had so many compliments, and no one could tell it was from a bottle/spray. :)

                    I've used St Tropez in the past and was never happy due to the lack of color, so I was so excited when they came out with this extra dark color! The color turned out great, a nice tan, not too dark but a really nice color! I'm not a fan of the foam though, you have to be really quick and it is a bit runny! Also- it took a long time to dry- compared to other brands I've tried. I couldn't get dressed for about 30 minutes. Besides the minor cons I was really impressed!!

                        Extra Dark Mousse is great for all skin tones. It will give you a deep golden tan. Our formulations develop differently for everyone based on their individual skin tone. Though it will be a dark tan, it will still look very natural.

                        Yes, you can. We always recommend a patch test if particularly sensitive. You can apply delicately with the Applicator Mitt or use a St.Tropez Face Applicator Mitt.
