    Extra Dark sounded scary to me at first, but do not be fooled! It is the nicest, deepest bronze ever! I feel like I’ve been on holiday for 2 weeks, the colour looks so natural, I’d definitely recommend to everyone, or may be I should keep this as my little beauty secret!

  2. Holly

    I’ve always loved using St.Tropez fake tan so I was very excited to see this come out as I love deep, dark tans! It did not disappoint – the colour is so dark but so natural! People keep asking me where I’ve been on holiday – will definitely be buying this again!

  3. Ellie

    Amazing colour, can’t believe how dark it was yet still looked natural! (and didn’t get all over the bedding!)

  4. Suzanne

    Looks like I have been away for ages in the sun!! I wore it to my uni cheerleading practice last week and now the whole team bought it!!! New team tan fave x

  5. Emily

    This definitely gave me my deepest darkest tan yet! In LOVE with this product.

  6. Daniel

    When I first heard about this product I got very excited! I already use the Dark range but sometimes find I need an extra boost in colour so will double dip (two applications). However with the new Extra Dark Bronzing Mousse there is no need as this Mousse produces the darkest tan out of the whole St.Tropez range. You must prepare your skin for this product, moisturise dry areas thoroughly and go easy on the usual places like hands and feet (the skin on these areas are prone to going darkest) I would also recommend you apply this in the evening as the guide colour is highly pigmented. You can leave it on for four hours to achieve the Classic Dark shade or eight to achieve the Extra Dark result! I left it on overnight and after showering Im left with the darkest most natural looking tan Ive ever achieved from a bottle! This product is the best most darkest natural looking self tan and I would recommend this to anyone wanting to achieve their darkest look!

  7. Catherine Lauris

    My favourite product yet, so silky and such an amazing colour, looks so natural and feels amazing, didnt feel sticky after application like most. Girls, you need this in your life! X

  8. Jill

    Wow!! I have tried a lot of self tanning products and definitely have favourites which I go back to and repurchase. St Tropez Classic Bronzing Lotion has been a definite favourite for over a decade for an everyday tan, but if I am going out or have a special occasion I like it best after a couple of applications to give a richer and deeper colour.

    This week I tried Extra Dark Bronzing Mousse for the first time and I already know it will be being repurchased! It applied very easily with a mitt and dried quickly, then after 8 hours I showered off the guide colour. The colour remaining is perfect, I don’t need a second coat!! Even my legs which are very difficult to tan have gone a gorgeous bronze colour… I am SO impressed!!

    Girls who like a deep tan I can not recommend this new product enough – it really does go dark but in a very natural way! No orange, no streaks and the guide colour makes the application impossible to do wrong!

  9. Wendy

    Wow. I wish you could submit photos. Because I am porcelain white and after putting this on. Not a streak in sight! Flawless, easy to use. And you can see if you’ve missed any! The best tan I’ve tried yet. Even the palest skin like mine, and it works.

  10. Emma

    St Tropez has been my favourite for many years now. This product dont disappoint! The darkest & best yet, giving me a tan I would expect from 2 weeks in the sun. Love it!

  11. Katie

    Im a super pale girl!! Like super pale so regular tans just make me sun kissed even if I leave it on for 8 hours! But this turned me into a bronzed goddess and I love it!! I looked like Id been to the Bahamas!! Love love love

  12. Daniel

    As the title suggests, this is the most natural darkest tan yet! When applying the mousse it easy very easy to see where you have applied due to the deeply pigmented dark guide colour. You must apply plenty of moisturiser to your hands, elbows, knees and feet and only use the residue on your mitt to go over these areas! You can leave this on for 4 hours for the Classic Dark tan or leave on for 8 hours to produce the darkest tan yet! It dries quickly but allows you to work in the Mousse to perfect your application. The tan lasts for 7 days on me which is great! It fades naturally (I moisturise daily) with the st.tropez tan enhancing moisturiser. All in all an amazing product which I will keep using and will purchase when I run out!

  13. Rachel

    I love a dark tan and am naturally very fair skinned, so extra dark yet natural tans can be difficult enough to find – this washes off to leave a really natural tan (although being a tan addict I’d still prefer a little darker!) It appears to be wearing really well, and applied without streaks, although it did cling to slightly drier patches. Very easy to use and get a great result though, without the need to build it up over days.

  14. Anna Thompson

    Im not normally a self tan person, but I do use the gradual in the shower and gradual tan. I applied the self tan, and it gave the best coverage, everyone asked if I had been away or what make of self tan I was wearing. And it doesn’t even leave a smell! Definitely in my weekend away bag for my trips!

  15. Nikkita Bastable

    Well well well, St tropez, once again you tick all the boxes! This stuff smells amazing and goes on smooth as silk. Don’t be alarmed by how dark it is when it comes out, you won’t look like that afterwards.

    So, after prepping, exfoliating and moisturising I decided to use this extra dark tan, it went on really easily using a mitt, it smells lovely and I could clearly see everywhere I had applied the tan. As always, very easy to use. I left the colour on over night and washed it off the next morning. I am really impressed with it! I am blonde and fair and although it’s January, I don’t feel like I’ve fake tanned at all. It appears very natural. I have found my new colour!!

  16. Megan Smith

    I was a little scared to try this tan! I do like a dark tan, but thought this might be too dark… however … fear not!! This tan is amazing!! Such a beautiful colour! A deep natural tan! People said I looked glowing! Also you hardly need to use any at all, as a little goes a long way!! Xx

  17. Susan Robertson

    I regularly use the St Tropez bronzing mousse but being fair skinned I often find that I needed to apply then reapply the next day to get the level of colour I wanted. This Extra Dark Bronzing Mousse solves this problem and one application gives me a lovely colour! The product is easy to apply with the tanning mitt.

  18. Vianne

    The product applies really evenly, has a lovely smell and the end colour is a lovely dark tan! This is my new favourite!

  19. Phoebe

    I’ve always loved using St.Tropez fake tan so to see them come out with a darker tan is very exciting. I was nervous how dark it was going to come out and the colour is very dark but still natural. Also the packing is amazing i feel like if i was packaging i would be that bottle!!!!

  20. Laura

    Okay, so I apprehensively gave this a go. I did NOT want to look orange or have an unnatural tan, but this was really, really good! I was really sparing in applying as I was scared it would look naff and fake, but Ive been proved wrong and it really does look natural! If you arent someone who has the time to build a gradual tan over several days, this is for you!

  21. Lorraine williams

    This is THE best and darkest tan ever. So easy to apply and smells nice too. Dont be alarmed when it is developing as it does look so so dark and a bit alarming. Once rinsed off it leaves a stunning colour. Highly recomended.

  22. Adele

    I love this new shade! Ive always had to apply a few layers to get the dark shade I like, Im naturally light blonde and pale skinned but this still looks like a natural colour on me, like Ive been on a lovely long beach holiday! It applies much better then the classic mousse, I find I dont need as much product to cover my whole body so a little goes a long way. Id recommend to everyone.

  23. Layan

    I have fallen in love with this product! The first Extra Dark self tan that I have tried and I will never look back…. It really does do what it says on the bottle.

    We all need this in our life!

  24. Marie yexley

    I’m absolutely in love with the colour that this product gives. It’s so lovely and dark and easy to apply too

  25. Amanda

    Just tried the extra dark love how u can see where u have applied it as mousse goes on dark,

    Best tan colour Ive had yet – I love it!

    Have already recommended to my friends and they cant wait to try it!

  26. Lucy

    Normally i use the dark tan for those big weekend nights, this extra dark tan is a winner!

    Easy to apply (i use the mitt) good coverage, smell does have a little tan smell however application is good.

    Normal length of time for development but the depth of the tan is great! Stays for a while too – worth a buy!

  27. Faye

    This product just goes to show why I’ve always said St Tropez is unbeatable! I’ve always used the Dark Mousse from the range as I’m a regular tanner and love that deep gorgeous glow. When I saw the release of this product for an EXTRA dark mousse I couldn’t wait to try it out and I can confidently say it did not disappoint!! I absolutely love it and look like I’ve been on holiday for 2 weeks!

  28. Lynsey

    Really happy with colour and texture of this product! It lasted long, was easy to apply and provided great coverage.

    It does exactly what it says it is extra dark and provides even coverage!

  29. Emily

    Applying it is SCARY! Like it says – its DARK ! I was actually really nervous about this one! However when I washed it off I was pleased, no orange tint, looked as though I had tanned really well on holiday. I looked healthy and my friend commented about my tan asking if I had been on sunbeds! I never use sunbeds due to the risk they bring and damage to skin so this is an excellent alternative! You don’t need to use alot as it spreads really well so I can see the bottle lasting for over 10+ full body uses! It fades really well and doesnt go patchy too which is great! Highly recommend – don’t be scared! 🙂

  30. Lisa

    Well Ive been using St Tropez tanning products for years, and wouldnt use anything else. I have used the majority of the gradual tans and my favourite WAS Dark Bronzing Mousse, however ST have most definitely moved up a level with the new Extra Dark, OMG its amazing, goes on smoothly (best using a Mitt), smells divine and the result is amazing/second to none, this is now my favourite product and would highly recommend.

  31. Sarah

    I was a bit nervous using this extra dark tan, as my skin is so fair, but I really shouldn’t have been it gives a lovely natural deep tan like you just had a good holiday, it applies really easily and left a lovely deep and natural tan on my fair skin. No matter what the occasion or whether you just want to get a golden glow, definitely one to reach for – loved this product!

  32. Annie Davies-Graves

    I recently got the new Extra Dark fake tan! I am in love!!! Its natural looking, it comes out as brown not orange. You only need a little bit as it blends so far aswell. It looks so natural! It smells amazing! I have had so many compliments and people asking how it looks so natural yet tanned! When it goes on it looks very dark but when it rinses off it is amazing!! Would definitely recommend!

  33. Becky

    I have always been a St tropez lover but had moved onto a couple of other fake tans which had been on sale. However as summer approached I thought i would go back to the 3 hour tan as i love the colour and results from this. But then I saw this one and after reading a few reviews which said the colour wasn’t dark enough I was a little concerned but i thought i would risk it anyway. I am so glad I did, this is by far the deepest darkest tan!! I am so happy with the results I look like i have been on a 2 week Caribbean holiday!! I left it on for 5 hours then rinsed it off, but i am going to try the full 8 next time!! If you love your tan… this is for you!!

  34. Sophie

    Honestly the best tan, it lasts for so long and fades rather than going patchy. Unlike other tans that turn you orange, this looked so natural

How do I tan my back?
We recommend applying Self Tan Mousses, Lotions & Mists with a Mitt. Our top tip from our experts is to turn the Mitt on your hand or try popping your Mitt on a wooden spoon for that extra reach! Or why not try our Self Tan Bronzing Mists, their 360 nozzles are perfect for those hard to reach areas.

What colour will I go?
Rinse off after 4 hours for our deep dark tan or after 8 hours for an intense, ultra dark tan. Perfect for looking like you’ve spent 1 week in the Caribbean or 2 weeks in Bora Bora!

How can you see where you apply?
Our Self Tan Extra Dark Mousse has a dark 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 Extra 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 Extra Dark Mousse we recommend rinsing off after 4 hours for a deep dark tan or after 8 hours for an intesne, ultra dark tan.
