Birchbox Breakdown

Sometimes a little extra color isn't enough: We want the kind of tan that says we've been on a long vacation somewhere exotic. But when our bank accounts aren’t having it, this deep-summer self-tanner does the trick. With a lightweight mousse formula and a self-adjusting color that tailors to your skin tone, this tanner gives the deepest tan you're likely to find without jet-setting to the equator.

How to Use

Pump mousse onto the Tan Applicator Mitt, and smooth over freshly exfoliated skin from the top of your body to the tip of your toes. Check to make sure you haven't missed any spots, and wait until the lotion is dry to the touch before getting dressed. For best results, wait at least eight hours. Shower to reveal a rich, vacation-worthy tan.

Great tan!

I have tried a few other self tanners before, but was never impressed and always had streaks. No streaks with St. Tropez Dark Bronzing Mousse! I used the mitt with this. This gives a very natural looking tan. I apply regular lotion to my hands, feet, elbows, and knees before applying the tanning mousse, and then again put a light layer of lotion on my hands and feet after applying the mousse. The only minor complaint that I have is that you can not apply and go with this self tanner with the intention of showering later in the day, as it leaves almost a dirty smudgy look on your skin until you shower. So I usually just apply it right before bedtime and shower in the morning. I would definitely recommend this!

Worth the Money

I am so pale that tanning outside is a big hazard; I either get a skin stinging sunburn or nothing at all. Tanning beds don't work and the spray tans offered (I have tried them all) are way too expensive especially when they end up peeling off. This tanner has a good olive tint to it, so there is no worry about it turning you orange - I can attest to that since I am a blonde version of Snow White. Before I apply this tanner, I like to make sure I moisturize for at least two days prior and drink plenty of water - hydrated skin is a must anyways. After freshly cleaning my skin I turn on a small fan in my bathroom and get to business. Lotion should go on your feet, elbows, and knees - and especially right below the knee! I apply the tanner everywhere and then take the excess tanner on my mitt and use it for my hands. I always sleep with the tanner on - I don't think four hours is enough, four hours will maybe get you a light tan. Afterwards, as long as you hydrate adequately, use lotion everyday after showering, and be extremely gentle if exfoliating, this tan can last you up to a week - and if you use a gradual tanner lotion it will last you even longer.
The tan that comes with this product looks amazingly natural and goes beautifully with any outfit and makeup!

Used before a vacation

I love St. Tropez products. I had only ever used the normal bronzing mousse and never opted for the dark version. However, I was feeling adventurous and knew I would be getting dark on my vacation anyway, so I tried it out. It still amazes me how well this product works to match my skin tone. The only part that I haven't perfected is my hands and making sure I get that part looking natural. If you're a self-tanning pro, I'm sure that wouldn't be an issue for you. I used the glove that they recommend to use and it worked very well. Also, as a self-tan newbie, the smell was totally fine, not bad at all.

Great color!

I am always looking for ways to tan myself (I am very pale) this mouse was easy to apply did not streak at all and gave me a natural tint. I only left it on for 4 hours before showering, can't wait to see what the color will look like after 8. My new go to for sure!

This stuff is literally amazing. You get the perfect sun kissed glow after one use. Doesnt turn you orange at all. If you are hesitant to use on your face, go for it. I have breakout prone skin and this stuff actually clears my skin up. Highly recommend!!
