I have super mixed feelings about this self-tanner so to simplify here's a list of Pros and Cons:

Pros: this self-tanner smells better than any others that I've tried! Even my boyfriend wasn't too opposed to helping me rub it in because the scent is really nice. It applies easily with a glove, just like most other self-tanners on the market, and dried within 5-10 minutes of applying it. The color isn't orange tinted at all and actually looks like a nice bronzy tan before and after you rinse off.

Cons: As it comes off it is SO patchy and becomes super streaky. This may be from working out every day and sweating through the tan as it comes off, but I hate the process of removing it because it leaves really splotchy patches all over. I also have a super hard time getting this product to look okay around the wrists/ankles/knees which are problems areas when applying self-tanner, but this one seems to make it more noticeable.

Overall, I LIKE this self-tanner! It is much quicker and easier than one that develops overnight and looks for the first couple of days after applying it. My only downfall is the removal process, but that's it!

I wanted to really like this. I think this was just something that wont work for me. I am so so fair skined you can see my veins. I am very sensitive to the sun and have an allergy to it so sunless tanners have been something I have been looking at for a long time. I went into Ulta and talked with rep she was confident giving me this product. I even questioned her if it was going to be too dark and she felt that it would be perfect ft or me. I followed the directions with exfoliating and using lotion but i was so orange it was very unnatural looking. So for someone with a darker complexion than mine it would probably be great.

I am very please with this product from St Tropez. I have used the original for years and I then tried the Loving tab 2 hr express because I was tired of waiting for a tan to develop. That one gave me a very nice brown color, but it’s very expensive for the amount and it goes very quickly so I opted to search for an alternative. This is it ladies! If you have used loving tan before and want more for you money try this! You do get a slight different color in this product. It comes out olive which I prefer over a brown color. And you have a choice of how long to keep it on 1-2-3-4 hours depending on the color you want. I personally love that I can choose based on timing with my color. In the wintertime it’s odd when you go from pale to super tan over night and people notice. I left mine in for 2.5 hours to get in between and it’s perfect! Very natural. I’m a good 3 shades darker instead of like 8. It does have a tan smell but it’s not horrible according to some of the other comments. Ladies, you’re putting tan on you it’s going to have some sort of smell. I can get over that. I highly recommend!

Oh man. Ohhhhh man. Okay, if you’re not used to self-tanning products, make sure you read the instructions on this very carefully. It’s the St. Tropez mousse we all know and love, with the streak-free and simple, mess-free application (make sure you use a tanning mitt!)... but turned up quite a few notches.

Make sure you’re watching this tan like a hawk as it develops. My skin tone is already light-medium so I figured this wouldn’t do too much for me even if I kept it on 2-3 hours, but I was wrong. Within an hour, I saw a drastic change. By two, I was running to the shower to rinse it off because I was SUPER bronze. And the crazy thing is, this tan continues to develop for a few hours after you rinse, so I woke up the next morning even darker.

This is my new best friend since I use actives in my skincare routine (lactic acid, vitamin c, etc) and have to limit my sun exposure, but I also don’t want to look pasty since I’m really pale for a Puerto Rican girl. I look like I just spent a week by the beach thanks to this mousse!

I have very fair skin and avoid sun exposure as best as I can, so I live for self-tanner. This is the best self-tanner I have ever used. The express aspect of it is genius. You can literally control the exact color of your tan based on how long you leave it on. If an event pops up for day of, I can quickly apply this 1-3 hours before showering and have a beautiful bronze glow in time for plans. I use it with the St. Tropez mitt.

I really like this self tanner compared to others. It goes on so well, I always use a foam glove to apply, and it doesn't streak. The color is always really nice too. I like that you can wash it off after 3hours because the smell of self tanner really gets to me after a while, but it can be a pain to plan around having to take a shower 3 hours from application.

Love this stuff! Streak free, easy to apply, and i can control the color! Beautiful natural tan that i get tons of compliments on! Only thing is that even tho i prep accordingly and moisturize daily i still can only get about 4 days of a nice tan before i feel like I’m fading! I am usually in the “fair-medium” range normally and with st tropez i am full medium (foundation wise!) also! Ive gotten about 1 whole month of tans (tanning once-twice a week) with one bottle! Perfect Olive tone!

I have used this Express tan from St Tropez 3-4 tines already. I tend to use it once a week. It is very effective for getting a bronzed look. It is not as dark as “Tan Wise- Dark” but it is less streaky/less room for error and lasts longer. I tried this product mostly so I could shower and not have to worry about sheets or clothing. I suggest putting it on around dinner time and showering right before bed. I would wear darker looser clothes, as it can get on it. Overall, I leave it on for three hours and get a good color. It usually lasts around a week before feeling the need to reapply. I cancelled my spray tan membership after buying this product so I must recommend!

I loveee this product!! I got it in a sample pack from ulta and I was hesistant to try it, but the color it leaves is phenomenal! It's not orangey and leaves a nice glow. It doesn't smell terrible and since it's one hour tan you don't have to leave it on for a long time anyways! Would totally buy this again.

Since it’s been really cold out, I haven’t been able to tan outside and in general, my skin is super pale... I could never find a good self tanner that didn’t make me orange and wouldn’t leave streaks on my skin!! I stared using the St Tropez and it’s my favorite! It’s definitely not the cheapest but its worth the money!!

What happens if you go longer than 3 hours without washing off this tan? Let's say I were to apply it, wait overnight, and shower in the morning. What would the color results be like?

Does this work well for really pale girls? And does it look orange at all?
