    I love this tanning lotion I use it often and washes off doesn’t stain perfect size bottle for about 5 to 10 uses depending on how dark you want it matches all skintones well worth the money.

    I am a long time fan of St Tropez products, my usual go to is the spray on gradual tanner because i hate streaks with a passion but i find it really difficult to apply creams and mouses with a mitt and get a completely natural finish. I always end up with at least one area that doesn’t look quite right once the tan has developed. The gradual tanner goes some way to combat this because you build up the colour so any mistakes can be covered over and made to look better but with this product you can get a completely flawless finish first time. Because the colour doesn’t develop, you won’t find areas that don’t look great hours later, and you also avoid that fake tan smell completely – bonus! It has the lightest gel/cream texture that is incredibly easy to blend out. I also find the colour of the light/medium is perfect for a really natural looking glow, not even a hint of orange to be seen! I really love this product for a special occasion and i would definitely recommend it.

    I am a newbie to fake tan and have never thought that I would want to even try it out but this year after coming back from my holiday in Cuba where I got a gorgeous tan I found that I was addicted to keeping my tan and I wanted to have a colour all year round. Ever since I got back to Ireland I’ve wanted to maintain that tan but even though I did look into sun beds I still wasn’t sure on going under that uv light that could be harmful so I had started looking into self tans. I was lucky to be given the chance to try this product and having applied it, stupidly, to skin just out of the shower (un-moisturised) I had found that I love this product. I loved that it was so easy to apply and the scent is lovely and not what I had always thought self tanning lotions smelled like. I applied it with my hands because I don’t own any mit. I applied it to the bottom half of my legs first and I tried to apply it fast in circular motions and it didn’t streak and wasn’t uneven which I was happy about. I then applied it to my thighs in the same way and found that it did catch to some dry bits in my inner thighs but that is why I never moisturised. I tried it again today and put on the tightest skinny jeans I own and after taking it off I was happy that it doesn’t transfer at all so frankly it does exactly what it says on the bottle. It gives you such a natural glow that I think I have become sort of addicted to this and am looking forward to trying out other items of theirs but this time I know that I have to moisturise before putting it on and to exfoliate properly as well. But all in all I am very happy with this product and I am glad that I am not, I guess you can say, scared about self tanners anymore. St. Tropez I have become addicted to the gorgeous glow. Thank you! <3 Ana

    absolutly amazing, i always struggle with fake tans but this one is amazing. perfect for a night out and quick and easy to use xxx

    Having used St Tropez gradual tan before but can never be bothered with the up keep i decided to try the instant tan for just when I want a bit of colour and its perfect, smells lovely, natural colour, takes hardly any time to apply and minutes to try, love it cant recommend it enough, tiny point is you cant then wash your hands with soap as it comes off so keep that in mind, carry hand sanitizer to apply on your palms.

  6. Emily

    I absolutely love this tan and would recommend it to anyone. As I have extremely fair skin I struggle finding a good natural looking fake tan but this one is perfect! It’s easy to apply using a tanning mit, has a lovely smell and unlike many fake tans this absorbs very quick and feels really light on the skin.

    At first I thought the bottle was quite small but it lasts for ages and just as long as many large bottled tans as you do not need a lot for each application.

    Defiantly worth every penny.

    Instant tan! What can I say! You have to buy ! This is a must to use! It is so quick and easy to apply , no streaks, lovely scent. It must be good as my Mum uses mine, without any probs or streaks!! And my Mum and fake tan dont normally make a good match! This is just the deal!

    WELL DONE St Tropez for this ideal perfect product! It’s a must for summer and pale skin. Go for it!

  8. Claire Hepworth

    I got a sample of this on the front of a magazine and used it when I couldn’t find the Instant Tan I usually use. It’s great! Goes on fairly easily (as easy as all the others, you have to not rub too much), good texture, fantastic natural colour even on pale skin and smells nice too. Will definitely use in future.

    This has got to be the best Instant Tan Lotion ever. . .So easy to apply and the colour looks like a natural tan!

    It’s brill! I love it!!

  10. samantha brennan

    The tan itself is amazing it goes on so nicely, very even and great colour….the first time i used it it was perfect but i was wearing a dark ish dress didnt find any transfer on my bedding i thought oh this is great, second time i left plenty of time of it to dry as i did my hair and make up for a night out when to put my white top on total disaster!! basically the top was ruined the tan had transferred onto the fabic not just in one small area, the top was unwearable 🙁

    The tan is great just dont wear light clothing is my advice

  11. Nicola

    I absolutely love this Instant Tan. I apply it with the St.Tropez mitt and you get a quick, completely streak free application! Best instant tan by far.

  12. Lucy

    I used to swear by rimmel instant however I came across this and haven’t looked back.

    The application is really simple, the lotion feels as though it moisturisers at the same time as tanning. It is durable and doesn’t wear off through the night nor does it transfer into my clothes, the colour provides a very realistic tan without being obviously fake! Application is smooth and streak free, I was also using it under my foundation as a base to give all over tan, provided right Depth and tone of tan without looking like reality tv star! Really hope the bring a spray version out with same properties.

  13. Carolyn Gentle

    Brilliant and easy to use!

    I loved it… Perfect for a quick tan for a night out – washes off easily so didn’t ruin my white bed sheets!

  14. Susan P

    I used this for the first time and thought wow…it’s pleasant fragrance and light lotion texture made it enjoyable to use. Once it had dried my skin felt smooth and silky and looked a natural sun kissed colour. I especially liked it on my face and a quick application in the morning with a bit of lippy and mascara and I’m ready to ‘face ‘ the day. It washed off easily as well and didn’t transfer to my clothes during the day .

  15. Tahsin

    Absolutely loved this. Since I’m already naturally tanned as it is using this just made my face (I only use it for face rather than my body) have an even lovelier colour to it. The tan looked natural and made my skin bright. I didn’t even break out when using this on my face, in fact I didn’t even bother washing my face at night (bad I know) and still managed to not have a face fully of angry red spots! One pesky thing about this tan is as with most fake tans, your hands will stain so be sure to use tanning mitts or at least wash your hands thoroughly with soap and water.

  16. Natalie

    This product is ideal for last minute plans, or to fill in any bits you’ve missed. It can also be used for contouring very effectively as it’s so easy to apply.

    It looks very natural and really brightens up my face, when used with the tanning mitt.

    It is easily removed with soap and water.

  17. Lynne Innes

    Firstly I’ve tried many many wash off bronzing lotions and none of them compare to this. The consistency of this is absolute perfection.

    Its a gel that is easy blendable, not too much coverage but not sheer enough where you have to use a lot.

    The colour is a believable tanned brown colour, for the smallest hint of colour simply add a drop of moisturiser.

    It even smells pleasant too which is always an added bonus.

    St. Tropez PLEASE NEVER DISCONTINUE THIS EVER!!! It is the best of the best.

    This product was great to use. I usually prefer mousse so was worried that this would streak but i didn’t need to worry. It glides over the skin easily and left no streaks.

    I love that its water and transfer resistant as i don’t want to get wet and look like a mess! It didn’t rub on to my clothes so i was very impressed. It also smells lovely for a tanner!

    Its the perfect product for a night out and when you need that instant fix! Must try!

    This is perfect for a night out it goes on so easily and has a beautiful smell which lasted. There was no streaks and it really stayed on well all night. I love the way how it dries and hasnt got that funny sticky feeling. I would not feel worried about it raining as this product will not budge.This product is so good, and i cant wait to use it again.

    I am so completely, truly in love with this product, it’s definitely my new best friend! Just looking at the packaging, I expected it to be high quality, and normally I feel quite let down by some instant tans, but this is perfect. Not only does it smell AMAZING (none of that weird tan scent, it’s like I’m wearing a sweet perfume), but it’s so natural looking. It looks quite dark when it comes out of the bottle, which I was worried about, but when applied, it gives you a subtle bronze, healthy glow. I applied it over the St Tropez Self Tan Luxe Oil, as I was heading out and didn’t want to apply more oil as that lasts for a long time, and it’s given me this amazing natural bronze- I look like I’ve been sitting on a sunny beach for weeks! I keep this in my handbag now, as it’s such an easy quick fix, it dries almost instantly. It’s wash off as well, which is great because I can relax a lot more about putting it on my face, which is something I panic about with most instant tans. Definitely worth buying, it looks so so good, I honestly can’t put into words how happy I am with how I look right now! xo

  26. Tilly Cuttler

    Love this tan that gives an instant sun kissed glow and so easy to apply. Would use again and highly recommend for any occasion.

  27. Tara Davey

    Well what can I say about this product.

    It’s amazing, it gives an all over glow with effortless application. It only took me around 10 minutes to apply . It drys super quickly and I didn’t feel sticky or tacky. My skin felt soft after using the product and the smell of the product is lovely. Fab sleek packaging and very easy to follow instructions. I was left with an amazing golden brown colour after the first application and you can always add more to build up a darker tan. 5/5

  28. Kelly Horsley

    Loved this product. Went on smoothly and left a lovely natural tan, had a nice scent and was so easy to apply. Stayed on well and washed off easily when I wanted to remove it, had no transfer or streaking. Ideal for when you need a tan in a hurry. really lovely product!

  29. Nikkita Bastable

    So, being a tan addict (friday night ritual), when I was given the opportunity to try this new instant tan I was just too excited! Im loving the new packaing, looks alot more appealing. Anyways, so last night was new years eve and I was saving it’s first use for then and I’m instantly converted back to instant tanning. Application is so smooth and as long as you prep well before use, it glides on really easily. So so pleased! It smells devine and the finished glow is perfect

  30. Bethany Filby

    The wash off nature of this tan makes it perfect for those who live an active lifestyle, often exposed to heavy perspiration or water based activities. Where as the traditional longer lasting tans will become streaky or patchy in these conditions, this instant tan can be washed off after the event with soap and water, leaving your body tan free once more, without leaving it feeling dry or irritated. This is not to say that the solution will come off in the rain, it stayed put all night until I washed it off in the shower.

    The creamy texture of the solution made application with a mitt extremely easy, and the colour was deep and even, with the classic St.Tropez scent.

    So pleased that St.Tropez have released this product. I have also used it on top of the original tanning mousse to create an instant bronzed effect perfect for a night out, enhancing the colour given by the classic mousse. Will definitely use this product again!

  31. Carly Smith

    I pretty much apply fake tan every week, I’ve tried so many and St Tropez is by far the most reliable and quality brand. I usually use the mousse but this was a godsend on NYE! I exfoliated fully and although wearing tights I applied top to toe. Well, it’s amazing. I put it on about an hour before I went out and so it had dried before I put on my make up too. The colour was perfect for my fair skin and the coverage was fantastic, no streaks or tell tale ankles or elbows! This will be a permanent fixture in my bag as it’s such a quick fix! My busy day often means I forget to tan in time for my night out, now I’ve got the perfect SOS. St Tropez never fails to perform.

  32. Sian Macdonald

    I have never used an instant tan before as I use the St.Tropez Express Mousse weekly so I was really looking forward to trying something new. I’m so glad I tried this product it’s completely changed my views on what I thought an instant wash off tan would be. The formula of this product is brilliant. It’s super easy to apply and blends well creating a streak free perfect glow. The tan dried quickly and the smell was pleasant unlike some other brands. Will definitely be using this instant tan in the future. A must have for special occasions and events when you need a St.Tropez glow but don’t have the time.

  33. Sam briggs

    This is the best instant tan that I have used so far so easy to apply, literally takes about 10 minutes including drying time you do need a mitt but it just glides on. The smell is actually quite pleasant not at all fake tan like more like a pleasant moisturiser, my skin actually feels nice and moisturised for ages after applying. The colour is more of a natural bronzed look than a mahogany look but I layered it to get a deeper tan. I usually use the Self Tan Classic Bronzing Mousse but this Instant tan is an absolute lifesaver for a last minute unplanned night out. I also found that it was really great if I had missed a bit of tan or sometimes I like my legs to be a little bit darker than the rest of my body so I can put this over my developing tan to get exactly the right shade. It’s also splash proof which is a godsend living in rainy Britain.

  34. Lauren

    Love this tan it gives such a natural and even coverage, the wash off nature of the tan makes it easier if it needs to be used last minute as it only takes 10 minutes to apply the tan, it also dries quickly and doesn’t leave the skin sticky or tacky. Unlike most of the fake tans it doesn’t leave the skin with a typical fake tan smell The packaging makes the product look sleek too!

    This tan is definitely worth buying.

  35. Jen

    So I have to admit I was a little wary of this product as I am with all instant tans.

    ….thinking back to disposable streaky orange tan towel disasters i’ve had in my teens….but I should have remembered the brand. This is St Tropez!! They don’t do wrong! Such an amazing product and perfect for those spur of the moment nights out when you need a quick golden glow! Will definitely be buying a tube of this or ten to sit alongside my other St.Tropez goodies! X

  36. Ashley

    I tend to avoid instant wash off tans however I decided to give this one a go and was really pleased with the results. It is easy to apply, dries quickly and does not leave your skin feeling sticky. The results are a lovely even and natural looking glow which is easy to wash off. Would definitely recommend it!

  37. Danielle Byrne

    So I took this tan away with me for NYE to a lodge me being addicted to tan I couldn’t go away without St.Tropez, before my holiday I had an in salon express St.Tropez tan but knew it wouldn’t last going in and out of the hot tub. So that’s where this beauty came in !! And what an absolute star product it was. I could pop it on and instantly have colour without worrying if we got a mini shower outside I’d be spotty like a Dalmation something I’ve experienced with wash off tans before. I was able to go in the hot tub knowing that in the morning this express product could be put on and I’d be back to my bronzed self. A* star product and an absolute must have for everyone !!!

  38. Ashley

    This tan was very good it was easy to apply with a mitt and spread evenly and well. There was virtually no scent to this which was impressive. As it is a light to medium colour it is good for a light glow or looked even better when I added it as a top up to the St.Tropez mousse applied a few days before. It washes off easily but when worn on a night out and a drink splashed on my arm it didn’t leave a white mark like other tans. Didn’t have any residue on my clothes either. I have very pale skin with freckles and it gives a natural colour. An all round 5 out of 5 for a light quick glow.

  39. Laura

    I usually use the classic mousse or have a spray tan as I’m a beauty therapist, (I like mine to last a little longer). However This is so easy to apply and perfect for a last minute tan or for someone that only wants a tan to last until it’s washed off. Perfect for all weather as it doesn’t go patchy when you get wet. All round good product and I will be buying more of this product and recommending to my clients 🙂

  40. Emma Richardson

    Had bad experiences with instant tan in the past so when St.Tropez sent me this to test I was a little worried and did not opt to try it New Years Eve on a rainy evening. Instead popped on a layer to my legs before a meal this weekend and it was really easy to apply with the mitt. Nice colour and no residue like others. The result was tanned healthy looking pins. Did have to walk in the rain and there was no running or transfer to clothes which was my worry so that was great. Washing it off was easy, I use the St.Tropez body polish to exfoliate and was back to normal with just a light touch and no issues. I still like the more permanent formulas but this was fab for when you don’t have time to let it develop overnight.

  41. Chloe Bainbridge

    I usually like to build up fake tan subtlety over a few days in case of mistakes but completely forgot in the run up to NYE and this saved me!

    It’s really easy to apply with the mitt and left my skin with a lovely natural looking glow just the effect I had hoped for!

  42. Laura Yilmaz- Pollitt

    I don’t really use fake tan that much but after using this tan I will be doing so from now on. It’s was so quick and easy to use and dried quickly, so many people asked had a been away? I was very impressed with the results.

  43. China

    I’ve used this instant tan twice now and I’m super impressed with the results! I have fair skin and I feel this doesn’t make me look orange. I think it goes on easier if you don’t use a glove/mitt, which isn’t a problem because you can wash it off your hands with no problem, no stains. The only issue I have is that it does come off a little too easily – you don’t even need soapy water. I got a couple of tiny drops of water up my wrists and arms and I had little pale dots left afterwards! This lotion would be perfect otherwise.
