    This product is well worth every penny! When I bought it I hesitated because it was slightly more expensive than other popular brands.. However it is totally streak free and low maintenance. Leaves a perfect golden glow and not even nearly orange! Would definatley recommend this product to anyone who wants to look tanned all year round!

    I have been a continuous user of this tan ever since it came out, I first tried the lotion version which is amazing also, after finishing that bottle I then went onto the mousse which I preferred as it was quicker to use for me. I have pale skin and with just one coat of this mousse after 8 hours of developing I am left with a gorgeous natural looking tan that is not streaky what so ever and lasts for well over a week with or without moisturising regularly. If I want the tan to be even darker I will wait an hour for the first application to dry then add another layer, I do this before I go to bed then of the morning after having a shower I am left with a lovely golden glow that isn’t orange and looks really natural. I have had people ask me if I have been abroad when wearing this tan as it really doesn’t look like a fake tan at all. What I find with most fake tans is that when they start to fade that’s when they make your skin look not so good but one doesn’t do that, you can’t really tell that it’s fading at all. I apply it with the st tropez tanning mitt which is the best mitt I have used and it makes the application of the mousse easy too. I would definitely recommend this to anyone that likes to have a light or even dark tan and I think that it would work well on any skin colour/type. Don’t be scared if you’re pale as I am as it works wonders for me and will for you too. Definitely worth the price and I can’t see myself using another fake tan again 🙂

    I’ve been a self tan user on and off for the last few years and I’ve tried many different brands and ways to apply it and there’s nothing like this! I was expecting it to be too dark for my skin as I’m pretty fair but it wasn’t and it made my skin look so natural! If you are a first time tan user I would definitely recommend going for this one as it leaves you looking gorgeously sunkissed. It doesn’t smell as bad as other tans I’ve used which for me is always a bonus. I’ve had people ask if I’ve been on holiday and when I explain that it’s fake tan they say they would never have guessed. I don’t think I will use any other fake tan now and this is definitely worth the money!

    I am on my third bottle and finding the mousse easy to apply. I put it on at night and when I shower in the morning am always disappointed that the colour is not dark enough. Having said that , it is one of the best tanning products I have used. I don’t use a mitt, so maybe I will buy one with my next purchase and see if that makes a difference to the colour.

    I absolutely love St.Tropez Self Tanning Dark Bronzing Mousse. I quit going to the tanning bed and was in need of a little color. St.Tropez made me look beach-ready in just one application! No streaks! No orange look! It looks great! I can’t live without it now!

    Best self tanner. I have spent hundreds and hundreds of pounds trying out the darkest, longest lasting and best colour tanners on the market. This firmly takes the lead. Love the green tinge in the colour guide – excellent to give you a deep olive rather than deep red/orange shade.

    Fabulous. Would love to see larger sizes.

    I am a fairly new costumer to St.Tropez I have bought two bottles of the self tan dark mousse 200ml and with my first bottle I used a few times with no trouble but suddenly when I went to apply it again a few days later halfway through my application I realized that the pump on my bottle was broken and would not pump anything out while the bottle was still at least half full and I tried for a while to get it to work with no luck so I ended up just unscrewing the top and had to finish off the rest of the bottle without getting the normal mousse” it was just pure liquid which was extremely messy and frustrating but then I was still very pleased with the results I did get before the pump was broken so I bought a second bottle thinking I might have broken the first one myself but unfortunately this happened again to the second bottle also which was only used once and was still almost full!!! The tan that I get WHEN THE PUMP IS WORKING is incredible but when I cant get the foam that comes out through the pump it’s not the same because it gets way too watery and causes streaking and staining. Hopefully it doesn’t happen to anyone else because it’s surely a mess! So be sure to keep your receipts because if I had remembered it would have been at least nice to get a replacement and a refund I am disappointed that it’s such a great product that has been quite a hassle to use from something so annoying! “

    I love this product! I have to say, when applying I did find I had some minor streaks however, after my 8 hours the tan I got was beautiful! Some tans are orange but this tan really is natural looking. I am pale and the tan still looks very natural. I brought this product to put on prior to my holiday to give me a glow and it worked wonders!

    Would recommend this product to everyone!

    Thank you ST. TROPEZ!

    I’ve tried a few fake tanning products Garnier Ambre Solaire Dry Body Mist (the light one and the regular one), L’oreal Nutrisummer Lotion, and Skin wear spray tan… but I’ve never tried St.Tropez although I am always tempted to try it whenever I see it at the department store, i can’t decide between the bronzing spray or the everyday airbrush.

    Been trying to find a perfect tan for long enough now & came across this. I now wouldn’t even think about using anything else!! It is an amazing streak free tan that makes you glow. I love it!!

  11. Faye

    I LOVE this product! It gives a gorgeous, natural looking, sun-kissed glow, best tanning brand on the market!!

  12. Emily

    Over the years I have tried many fake tans and I have to say this is always the one I go back to. It is so easy to apply and leaves you with such a natural tanned colour. I cannot find anything that works so well and would recommend this product to so many people. Absolutely love it!!

  13. JackieP

    I tan easily but find that most false tans hardly change my colour until I tried this. It gives a lovely colour which looks very natural, no streaks and so easy to use, it automatically adjusts to match your skin tone, even the dreaded ‘biscuits/curry’ smell is very slight. I had so many compliments on my tan and people asking where I had been on holiday. My friend who has very pale skin looks amazing using this as it has adjusted for her colouring. Totally love it.

  14. Sophie Scribbles

    St Tropez Dark is THE only tan that works absolute wonders for me and will forever be my favourite summer time tan.

    I use the St Tropez tan moisturiser on my knees and elbows before hand, then I use the St Tropez mitt to apply.

    Starting at my feet, I use gentle sweeping motions working up my body. I recommend to leave overnight, at least 8 hours (longer if you can).

    In the morning I shower without shower gel just warm water.

    I am left with the most beautiful bronzed skin that I’ve ever achieved with a self tanner. Perfect!

  15. DMC

    Applied with the mitt this product was easy to put on and gave a lasting tan, would recommend this to friends.

  16. Victoria

    This is one of my favourite tans from St Tropez. It goes on easier and smoother than the original mousse and sinks in quicker in my opinion. It’s not as drying as other mousses and the result is a really realistic and dark tan. It’s especially excellent for legs (which don’t always pick up tan as well) but I would recommend using a different product for the face. I’m quite fair but tan in the sun easily and I find the dark mousse a bit too dark for my face, whereas the original mousse is fine. I use a mitt to apply mine and I’ve never had a problem, it’s always a very even application.

  17. Linzi Cypher

    This mousse is fantastic, it applys so easy with the St Tropez mitt and gives a really even coverage with long lasting results. I love the way that this is not sticky so you can carry on as normal and not have to wait. The smell is by far the best I have tried and the colour is a perfect golden tan. I will be recommending this to everyone !!!

  18. Debbie Louise Davies

    I love this bottle and how it appears. I feel you know you are going to get a good tan just from how appealing the packaging is!

    I used it with the St Tropez mitt, this mousse is so simple to use that even idiots like me can’t even get it wrong!

    It glides all over the skin and absorbs easily so that you can see if any blending in is necessary. I only put a little on and it goes a long way, leaving my skin to develop a gorgeous colour. It goes on even and doesn’t leave any streaks and it doesn’t leave my skin feeling sticky.

    There is no horrible smell and no dodgy streaks if you use the mitt correctly!

    A must have for anyone wanting to look like they’ve just stepped off the plane!

  19. Faye

    This by far is definitely and always has been my favourite product of the whole St Tropez range! Always leaves me with a fresh, healthy & non-streak glow! I love it, best tanning product on the market!

  20. Niamh Fox

    Have used all the tans on market. This is by far the best. No smell, drys quick and gives a real healthy dark natural looking tan..try it. Its brilliant.

  21. Michelle

    This product is my absolute all time favourite & always an essential for me!! As a regular tanner I use it all the time as it gives me the ultimate deep bronzed glow all year round to the point people have actually asked me if I’ve been on holiday! Best on the market!

  22. Elizabeth Adams

    Favourite tan on the market! Really easy to apply as the mousse just glides over your skin. Drys really quickly so is good if you need to use it before a night out, it also has a lovely brown glow to it which still had a very natural appearance. I would recommend to anyone whose looking for a tan that will make people question if you have just taken a trip to the Caribbean!

How do I tan my back?
Our Self Tan Mists are perfect for those hard to reach areas. However our top tip is to turn the Mitt on your hand so you are applying or blending with the back of your hand vs your palm when reaching your upper back. Or try popping your Mitt on a wooden spoon for that extra reach!

What colour will I go?
Our Self Tan Dark range tailors to your individual skintone leaving you with a natural-looking deep, dark tan in just one application. Perfect for looking like you’ve spent 1 week in the Caribbean!

How can you see where you apply?
Our Self Tan Dark range has natural-looking a tint to help guide your application, so you can simply buff the foam in with a Mitt and be rest assured to have a flawless finish everytime.

How long will my tan last?
Depending on your skincare routine your tan will last up to 7 days and fade even.To get upto 3 more days of your tan, ensure to exfoliate every 2-3 days (this will also ensure an even fade) and use our Prep and Maintain Moisturiser daily to give your skin the hydration it needs.

Can I use Self Tan Dark Bronzing Mousse on the face?
All our products are safe to use on the face, however we recommend using just the excess on your mitt for application or trying our Self Tan Purity Bronzing Water Face Mist for the easiest face tan, bursting with skincare actives!

When do I shower the tan off?
For our Self Tan Dark range we recommend rinsing off after 4-8 hours.
