Most Helpful Positive Review I'm getting more lickity split!!!!
I have been using the St. Tropez Self Tan Express (the one that u get a tan within an hour) for a long time now & needed to order some more when I came across this one whipped marshmallow & my interest was peaked due to the scent, color of bottle AND the rave reviews! So I ordered this one & tried it last night for the very 1st time & its my new fave!!!!!! ❤️It!!!!!! I also used the new luxe mitt & it smooths it in so much better than the original. I didn't feel sticky at all & my application looks flawless! Please keep this one around!!! I see it says limited edition scent but please keep this around as permanent!!!!!! I'm seriously getting ready to place another order just because u don't want it to be gone when I need more. I'm not a person that normally leaves reviews but I HAD to spread the good word on this one!!!!
Most Helpful Critical Review Better than the original formula!
I recently started using the original formula, so I thought I would try the marshmallow scent. I do think this product is slightly better than the original, with respect to it giving a deeper color after showering off the residue. The marshmallow smell is a mild scent, and it does only last while applying. It's nice to switch up the scent, but you still smell like spray tan for the rest of the week just like the original. I dislike that these special scents cost the same as the original, but have less product in them. You're paying the same price for less, but have a "better" application smell. I'd say try this out if you have tried the original and want to switch things up. Otherwise, the original is a better buy. I have found that this product also leaves lasting stains on my application mitt, whereas the original formula washes out of my mitt after use.
Reviewed by 34 customers Awful! Patchy and no color payoff!
Hannah from Maryland
I have tried this twice now after exfoliating and shaving as I normally do. The first time I used the st tropez prep lotion and got really patchy results around my knees and elbows where the areas didn't absorb color at all. Tried at again without lotion and got the same results. I would not recommend this product!!!
Deb0613 from Ohii
I want really excited by this like I should have been for the price. Color was pretty, Did streak a little on my calves but not horrible. I still like my L'Oréal Self tanning the best-the wipes are the best for my legs. And a fraction of the cost. This was a waste for me to just be "ok".
My new GO TO tanning mousse
Katie the Carlady from Hudson oh
The mousse is so easy to use. Please use a mitt so that your hands are looking crazy. Make sure you exfoliate. I also use it every other day vs. everyday as I like color but not too dark. Looks more natural to me!
JB from Texas
Lovely scent! Provide even and natural bronzing. I highly recommend!
The Best tanning product I've ever used
Cleo from San Diego
I am someone who has a hard time finding the right self tanner. I have tried so many and they end up peeling on my skin and fading in a very unattractive way, but not this one! It faded very evenly and naturally with no weird spots. And on top of that, it smells like s'mores! The smells fades after about a day, but no funky tanner smell at all. This is a winner!
I love this product!!!
BeachChic83 from Cincinnati, OH
This tanning lotion is the best ever. I don't tan in the sun because it is too harmful to my skin and this stuff makes tan look real.
Most amazing self tanning mousse!
Happy from Springfield, il
Love this marshmellow smell!
Not buying again
LeAnn from WI - Wisconsin
I was using the regular bronzer which I loved and decided to try this. The color does not set as well as the regular bronzer and most of it rinses off even 24 hours after showering. I needed to upkeep more often with this product.
The smell is also sickening sweet. It doesn't smell bad but it's overpowering.
My skin also became irritated in some areas that had never happened with the regular bronzer. I typically don't have sensitive skin, but i broke out in an itchy rash in certain creases of my body every time I applied this product. Very disappointed.
Boring from PA
St Tropez tans last 2 weeks on me. W proper maintenance and gradual lotions occasionally. How I've been using this is the express one for 3 hours in am, shower rinse and let it set for day, then this on before bed. Rinse off in am. Prob on 10 hours. I get this natural not over the top yuck mud dark tan, and boy does it last! I'd use this alone any day I just got the 2 at once so I use them both haha. Smell is great like aqualina pink sugar (tanning smell does kick in). I deducted a star cuz it felt sticky going to bed (didn't dry long enough) and the pillowcase the only piece of bedding that was white looked like someone dumped hot chocolate all over it haha.
Perfect for pale skin!
Jen from Lynnwood, WA
This is absolutely the perfect self tanner for those of us with pale skin. I don't usually like self tanner with any bronzer (I like it to go on clear - I'm so pale that a bronzer always ends up looking streaky), but this one is incredibly subtle, blendable, and allows me to see the areas I've covered. I use a mitt and circular motions allover (at night, after a shower, and I sleep in it and wash off the next morning) and it's streak-free and perfect. It smells better than any other tanner I've used, dries quickly, and feels great. I'm a little confused by the reviews that say it's "sticky," as it doesn't feel that way at all to me.
Easy Tanning for the lightest sun phobic
AGirlHasNoName from Colorado
I love this. I am very VERY naturally pale. I am able to achieve a color with this stuff that looks natural, and not orange. This is the first tanner I've tried that doesn't make me feel sick with that terrible fake tan smell. I hope they never stop making this it's everything
Carl from Tacoma
This self tanner smells delicious and gives you a lasting golden tan.
Love the look but does transfer
Deb0613 from Ohio
Smells nice and looks good on my fair skin but does transfer And take a while to dry.
Don't be deceived
Lookin' for the Grand Tan from TX
I've been a lover of LOVING TAN and NORVELL for years, however the smell of the DHA reaction is pretty unbearable. So I was intrigued when I saw this new scent! Pros: the smell is absolutely wonderful the entire time, even throughout the processing. A lovely golden bronzy, color when applied. That's it for pros! Cons: it is insanely sticky for hours after application, to the point to where I do not want to get dressed or sit down or leave the house due to feeling gross, not to mention trying to sleep with this product on, hard no! The color is is very very subtle, I don't think an extremely pale person would be satisfied with this color outcome. I let it process for the entire 8 hours and then some, did not wash off for 24 hrs and this stuff rinsed RIGHT off, down the drain with no evidence that I had used self tanner at all. If St. Tropez could make this product darker, less sticky and actually STAY this would no doubt be the best self tanner, but I don't anticipate that happening.
SO STICKY! Buy the normal version
Hanna from Chicago
I use st tropes normally and when I saw this I thought it would be fun to switch it up. However this is the stickiest self tan product I have ever used. I would skip this and buy the regular bottle of self tanner.
tan from wv
thia is really an awesome purchase. looks beautiful on
No sickening self tanner smell!
Elyse from Pittsburgh
After trying some more budget friendly products previously, I decided to spring for St Tropez. I have to say, just like a lot of makeup products you DO get what you pay for. The smell is definitely an improvement in my opinion but I could see it not being favorable for everyone. The tan also LASTS. I won't say it's streak free because you still have to be aware of where you put it and rub it in, it's not perfect. I will definitely be buying again!
Good for really pale skin
Brook from NC
I am a redhead with super pale skin and this color is perfect if you just want a light glow and something natural. I loved the color but it doesn't last very long and I wouldn't recommend it to anyone with a base color. However, if you have sensitive skin I would skip this one after about 3 days I had a rash all over and my doctor said it was likely due to the scent so if you have sensitive skin this isn't a good choice
Rach from Pittsburgh, PA
I've been using St Tropez gradual tanning lotion for about two years, when I decided to try this instead. I've known forever that I have sensitive skin, and I guess didn't think about the added fragrance. I had a red, itchy reaction all over my neck from this tanner. It's specifically only on my chest/neck. I had only realized when doing my makeup, and the second pic is after I applied some soapy water to try to remove the tanner from my irritated skin, but it seemed to get worse. So if you have sensitive skin I would not recommend this one!! But besides that, the color is great and looks even.
MelanieLynneN from Atlanta, GA
Ever since St. Tropez changed their formula I had a hard time getting the Original or even extreme bronzer to last past the shower, even after a full day's wait. THIS formula not only smells amazing like s'mores but gives instant color that lasts the way i had been used to.
Good for pale skin
Em from NM
The scent is nice and I don't get any streaking or unevenness when used with a mitt. I find that it wears off evenly as well. I have super pale skin and it gives me a really believable tan, dark enough to be noticeable but not so dark or orange that people think it's fake. It's definitely my favorite against other brands, however I've never used the original St Tropez formula so I can't say how it compares to that.
Love a Tan from Omaha, NE
Love this tanner! Great color and best smelling tanner I have ever used. Also, dries fast and doesn't leave you feeling sticky. I typically put tanner on a couple hours before bed and sleep with it on and then shower in the morning. With other tanners I don't sleep well because of awful smell and stickiness. This one smells great & can't even tell it is on. More realistic, brown color too.
Not effective for anything but time consumption
Loha from OKC, Ok
I was so excited to try this product after several great reviews. I am also a user of the basic St Tropez, which works well. Hiwever, this was a major let down as I got zero color from this formula. I followed the directions as stated on the bottle to no avail. I will be returning this product.
Fun to try
Elle from Missouri
I like this, but prefer the express mousse. This one smells good so it's fun to try, although the scent can get a little strong after a while. The color is a nice olive tan, but the express one gets darker and of course is faster to use. Overall happy with my purchase and would recommend if you like a sweet sugary scent.
Hope from Maryland
Love this product!! Stays on for about a week (longer than other brands) and when it fades it fades the most even I've ever seen a tan fade!! Just doesn't get you as dark the first time (but it looks so natural and not orange) so two nights of tanning should be your perf glow if you want more of the darker side.
