Awesome stuff

I got this sample as an add on when I purchased the mousse. I love this brand and this face tanner doesn't break me out. It's a great product. No scent and isn't oily. I apply it at night when I use the self tan mousse and rinse it off in the AM.

This has a beautiful coloringt it. Never looks fake, always makes your face look freshly tanned. Not too dark or too light - just right!

Wonderful!

Goes on non greasy, gives great color, not orange. Perfect pairing with the body collection. So far has sat well with my skin type.

cautiously optomistic

I am very, very fair and have been just embracing it lately, though I will do some self-tanning before vacation or an event. This summer I have a bit of a tan on my body from the pool, but my face has remained ghostly from all the high SPF face products and religiously rocking a hat when i'm out in the sun. There's just enough difference between my body and my neck/face to make it annoying and noticeable, and bronzer doesn't really help because I am so fair - it just looks muddy or sparkly. So I decided to give this stuff a try, even though I would never normally use tanner on my face because they ALWAYS break me out on my chest when I use them on my just body. Being cautious, I mixed a drop of this with my regular day moisturizer and applied all over my neck and face. It does have that self-tanner smell. I also noticed my skin looking flaky a few hours later, but closer inspection proved it to be the tanner/moisturizer just balling up on my skin like it didnt soak in well. So i would not try this under makeup. I washed my face about 7 hours later and did see a tiny, tiny bit of color. The next morning it looked a hair deeper, but is very, very subtle. Color it added on me leans toward yellow-ish? But no breakouts so far which is a huge surprise. And no streaks i can see. My neck could have used more as well, as my face now matches my arm but my neck is still white as a ghost. but when I do my makeup, i think this is going to do the trick for these last few summer months until my natural tan fades! I probably will not purchase this now, as I used so little of the sample by mixing with my moisturizer that the tiny tube will last me months. But unless I suddenly break out like what! after more uses, I will probably purchase this next season if I have the same problem of tan(ish) body and ghost face!

I don't like self tanners so it's hard for me to review this. I have a pool and already have a natural tan all summer. In the winter I don't use self tanners because I don't like the way they look.

Great self-tanner for your face
Purchased

I'm really pleased with this product. Makes my face feel soft and moisturized while giving my skin a realistic tanned appearance. Color lasts for days without reapplying but you can add a little more each day to increase the sun-kissed look.

Pretty Close to Perfectly Even...

You know the drill, bronzers are never even....I tried this one and had to buy it again for those days you don't want to wear much make-up, feeling dry, pale...put it on! It's an amazing product and I've never smeared or had it stain a thing!

DID NOT CARE FOR THIS PRODUCT
Sampled

DISSAPPOINTED. I usually love products by this brand and I was shocked that I did not care for it. I won't be purchasing. I could not tell a difference on my face when using this product, I would not recommend.

Usually love St Tropez

I've used their self tan spray several times with great results. I decided to try this as a sample. I have to rate this so low because it made my neck break out into an awful, red rash. I've never had an allergic reaction to a lotion or self tanner before. It's the only thing I can think of that would make my neck break out overnight.

not as good as some of their other products
Sampled

I really like the St Tropez line, but didn't find this did much for my face. I like the gradual cream and this was a temporary bronzer only.
