Refresh and revive your skin with St Tropez Self Tan Purity Bronzing Water Mousse, their purest formula yet. With 100% naturally derived DHA, it is infused with uplifting green mandarin water and tropical hibiscus flower extract to help combat the effects of pollution and environmental aggressors. This gentle, clear and freshly scented water mousse easily absorbs into skin, leaving a light gleam to guide your application. Within 4 to 8 hours, it develops into a flawless, streak-free golden tan that smells beautiful, lasts for days and fades evenly. For added convenience, there¿s no need to rinse off any guide color - no transfer to clothing or bedding and it is comfortable to wear all day. Suitable for all skin tones and clinically proven to hydrate for up to 12 hours, it will leave your skin with a glowing, natural golden tan that lasts.


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. The product gives a light gleam to guide application.
Step 3: Wait until touch dry before getting dressed. No need to rinse off. Before getting skin wet, allow 8 hours for your natural looking tan to fully develop.
Step 4: To prolong and maintain your tan, moisturise 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.

      Comments about St. Tropez Self Tan Purity Bronzing Water Mousse:

      Only reason I'm not giving this 5 stars is because it's hard to see where you have already applied the product. Definitely a tad lighter than other St. Tropez tanners but I have a beautiful tan after applying it once, showering and then applying it again. Love that it's clear. I've been waiting for a product like this for a long time. Thank you St. Tropez!

      Nice self tanner but does leave me feeling a little tacky

      By Amanda

      from Thomasville,NC

      Comments about St. Tropez Self Tan Purity Bronzing Water Mousse:

      I like this product since it doesn't transfer onto your sheets or clothing and has a wonders tropical smell. The foam is easy to apply with a mitt but it does feel sticky even hours later after it's dry. The sticky part doesn't bother me if I'm going straight to bed but it's a little annoying to be sticky all day. Other than that I like it a lot. The color is nice and buildable. Will repurchase

      I pretty fair but have olive undertones. I got the small size of this in a subscription box. I tried a test patch on my arm and it turned me orange nothing tan about it. Straight oompa loompa. Thank goodness I did testpatch first.

          Comments about St. Tropez Self Tan Purity Bronzing Water Mousse:

          Ive been using this product about once per week in these pre-summer months and it is so effortless and leaves you the perfect bronze! I always use at night before bed, right after exfoliating in the shower! It only takes about 10 minutes to apply and it doesn't leave any sort of stains on my sheets when I sleep in it! It smells good at application but after about 6-8 hours when the tan has fully set in, it starts to get a typical spray tan smell.

          Comments about St. Tropez Self Tan Purity Bronzing Water Mousse:

          Okay so I got this in a subscription box, when I tried to use it for the first time it didn't really work and not reading the label I thought this was just a glow mousse because that's how it appeared to be, I used this over the weekend of a festival on the body parts that were exposed. Now I'm a very pale girl so I native when I get any amount of tan and I'm sitting here realizing my mistake.. for the first time in my life I have tan lines and that I should've trusted in this product. I will say that the tan parts of me are very beautiful and natural like but Jesus crust I am so mad at myself right now! Hoping this fades out nicely!

              This tanner is AMAZING. What I have always wished exists!! No smell, no color transfer to clothes or sheets, doesn't smell funky when it's too hot outside. THANK YOU ST.TROPEZ!! It will take 4-8 hours to fully develop so you need to plan ahead, so don't think it doesn't work if you don't see results right away!

              Comments about St. Tropez Self Tan Purity Bronzing Water Mousse:

              I prefer this product over most self tanners for two reasons:
              1. it smells 100x better than others I've tried. (I HATE the smell of self tanner)
              2. the tan comes out even and natural (I have very fair skin)
              The only reason I give this product 4 stars is because the tan fades pretty quickly. Within a couple of days if you don't reapply. However, i don't mind applying it often because I am able to stand the smell so much better than other tanning products.
              In my opinion, the benefits outweigh the con and I will continue to purchase and use this product.

                Comments about St. Tropez Self Tan Purity Bronzing Water Mousse:

                This product gave me and really nice tan and i really liked it. The only thing is it's tricky to apply because you can't see what you've applied/wear because it's clear. I didn't notice any tan right away, but the next morning I was pretty tan and it gave me about the same tan as the st. tropez express tan. Overall I would buy it again, and probably prefer it over the st. tropez express but I now know to be super conscious of rubbing it in fully.

                    A:

                    You can use on your face. 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. However, you need to wait until after the 8 hour development to shower or apply makeup.

                • Q:

                  The bottle recommended exfoliating 24 hours before using. How often do you exfoliate if you use the product several times? Does the tan come off each time you exfoliate?

                    A:

                    Exfoliate every 2-3 days post application. Exfoliating does not completely remove the tan; it ensures the tan fades evenly.

                • Q:

                  How dark does your tan become after using this? (In comparison with the other 2 Mouse shades) I'm Fair skinned and use the dark bronzing mouse and love it. After a couple applications it looks like I was on vacation in Florida for a week. Curious how this compares? Thanks!

                    A:

                    The Purity Mousse is a couple of shades lighter than Classic Mousse. If you like Dark Mousse and having a deeper tan, you should try our NEW Extra Dark Mousse.

                    Depending on your skin type, activity level, exfoliation, and other factors, it can vary from person to person, but usually this tan will last 5-7 days and fade down naturally.
