Find in Store-

Self Tan Dry Luxe Oil is the most advanced formula in self tan. Your instant luxurious luminous glow develops into a long-lasting tan after 4-8 hours and lasts for up to 10 days. Infused with eco-cert approved DHA (an all natural tanning agent).

Sophie's Pro Tips: Allow the luxe dry oil to soak into the tan applicator mitt for a few seconds prior to skin application. This will ensure the product will not run. For a decadent skin finish and to add the final touch to your look, add a few drops to your favorite body lotion and gloss over any exposed limbs. Remember to wash your hands if product has been applied without the use of a tan applicator mitt.
Shake well before use to disperse the shimmer. Pour a small amount onto the St. Tropez Applicator Mitt and apply to clean dry skin. Wait until touch dry before getting dressed. Allow four to eight hours before getting wet.

Precautions: Don't apply to broken, irritated, or sensitive skin. Stop if irritation occurs. Self-tan may stain. Avoid contact with eyes and lips; rinse if contact occurs. 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 aging, skin cancer, and other harmful effects to the skin even if you do not burn.

Not the best

By Destiny

Comments about St. Tropez Self Tan Luxe Dry Oil:

So I bought this a while ago and forgot about it so I recently brought it out to try it. After I got out of the shower last night, I thought it would be a good time to try it. I waited until my skin was dry and started putting it on. First of all, I had it on my hands and it somehow got in the bathroom counter, floor, toilet, and rug. After I had it all on, the color looked really good. I got dressed and went to dinner for a few hours. When I got back home I put on a big white t shirt to go to sleep, thinking nothing of it because the oil had plenty of time to dry and shouldn't have been a problem. This morning when I woke up there was light brown splotches all over the top half of my shirt!! Not only that but there's definitely some patchiness on my skin. So overall, wouldn't recommend.... the spray is much better.

    Metallic smelling, fades quickly and clings to dry spots

    By Jaimie

    from WA

    Comments about St. Tropez Self Tan Luxe Dry Oil:

    I am a huge fan of St. Tropez products and I had high hopes for this one. I don't mind the typical self tan smell, but this one has a distinct metallic smell to it. I found that I used a ton of product and that it really seeped into dry spots and have some patchy areas. I usually don't have that problem with their mousse. There's also no way that this product can last up to 10 days. I would need to reapply about every three days.

    The one good thing about this product is that once applied it doesn't feel sticky like other self tanning products.

    Overall, I still love St. Tropez products, but I'd recommend the mousse over the dry oil.

      Other than the smell I LOVE this product! I think it does a really nice job of giving a natural tan that is even and fades evenly as well. I have tried a lot of high end tanners and I prefer this one! Only complaint is the smell.

        I read the negative reviews on here . Never have any problems with this. This is by far the best product from st. Tropez. It IS so easy to apply and I go to sleep in it, and never wake up with splotchy skin or brown sheets. So natural and satisfying.

            Comments about St. Tropez Self Tan Luxe Dry Oil:

            This is like trying to apply water from a bottle into your hand and then to your skin. It drips everywhere and then is sticky on the skin. Even after it's on the skin for awhile it's still sticky. I didn't like the smell of it either. It's like smelling wet pennies. It drips easily onto other surfaces where you DONT want it to go. I'm going back to my creamy Jergens Natural Glow!! Maybe other St Tropez products work better.

            Comments about St. Tropez Self Tan Luxe Dry Oil:

            Applies easily with the mitt. I put it on let it fry while I'm getting ready it gives immediate color to my skin. I am pale so does not to dark or any orange. Shower it off before I go to bed and I'm good for about 3 days. Does not take much product to cover your body. I only smelled the tanning smell a little before I washed off the initial application. I will buy again.

                  Yup! We recommend exfoliating and applying their Tan Optimiser Body Moisturiser to dry, rough areas such as knees and elbows prior to applying the Self Tan Luxe Dry Oil for best results. Apply using their Applicator Mitt for the smoothest, most even look. :-)

                Can you apply this tanner to the face? Some tanners are just for the body and not the face. And if its for the face, will the tanner give out an even skin tone matching the rest of the body?

                I have used several self tanners and everyone, including the St.Tropez that the sales lady recommended because it was their top seller, turns me orange especially my legs. Someone told me it was the undertone of my skin color. Will this give me the same orange look? Don't want to spend the money for nothing!

                  A:

                  The Self Tan Luxe Dry Oil gives a lovely deep color, but it looks best on more olive toned skins. The best St. Tropez tan for you would be the In Shower Gradual Tan or the Express Mousse, but just leave on for a few hours then rinse off. If you have tried the Classic Self Tan Mousse or even Dark, we would recommend to give the new Express or In Shower tanners a go, as the color is super natural. You can control how dark they go. St. Tropez also offers a fantastic Gradual Tan Lotion, which would be good for you also. You can certainly patch test the Luxe Dry Oil, if you'd like to see how it looks on a discreet area of your skin prior to full application to be sure you like the effect.

                  A:

                  Remember, even though it is a dry oil, it is an oil, which means you will always have a hydrated feeling! Brazil nut oil dries faster than any other oil out there, hence why it's great to use with a self tan. If you feel really sticky, you have probably over-applied, so take a dry towel or mitt and lightly buff with a flat hand over the body to remove the excess, then you will be able to get dressed, etc., without any problems.
