St Tropez Self Tan Classic Bronzing Mousse - review and photos


I've just finished off this St Tropez bronzing mousse, which means it's time to review it and also write a separate post that removes it from my Project Pan 2017 list and replaces it with something else. 

Do note that this won't be a super long post because there's not a lot to say about this product and I'm also not a huge fan of self-tanning mousses: I much prefer tanning creams.

St Tropez claims/product details:
  • Oil and paraben free
  • Easy-to-apply and delivers an even tan all-over
  • A self-adjusting mousse that's perfect for the entire body, including the neck and face
  • Contains aloe vera, which helps give you a natural-looking tan that will last for an extended period of time
  • Dries instantly and uses our 'aromaguard' technology that effectively removes the telltale scent of a self-tan by a minimum of 70%
  • RRP: $39.95 for 120ml or $59.95 for 240ml


I've always loved St Tropez tanning products, and this one didn't disappoint. While I much prefer tanning creams because I find those less hassle overall - you can just whack one on in place of your body cream and forget about it, so no extra steps - I did find this worked well so if you like a good tanning mousse, you may well like this one.

It's easy to apply - particularly with the mitt - and I do like that you can see where you've placed the colour because I've run into problems before with tanners that go on too light or even clear. This one applies brown so you know exactly where you've put it.

The product does have a smell but it's not offensive and it just smells like sunscreen to me, so I don't mind the fragrance. I'm also not aware of it once the product has dried down on the skin - another plus.

I got maybe four uses from this 50ml bottle so the full size should last a good while. Having said this, it's not a cheap product so I would definitely wait for specials because if you're like me, you won't want to spend $60 on a self-tanner.

Each time I used it, I left it on for the minimum of four hours and I was left with a natural, even tan that didn't look fake or patchy. The colour lasted a week before I needed to do it again, and it started to fade on day four or five (depending on how often I exfoliated my body).

The packaging is also functional and it dispenses a small amount of product so you can control how much you're applying each time.

It's not a sticky product and it doesn't transfer onto clothing - a plus because I've had that issue before and like many it's something I want to avoid with my tanners. It will transfer if you dress too quickly after application and it is sticky until it dries down, but otherwise it felt fine on the skin while I was waiting for it to develop.

All in all, this is a good little product and I recommend it if you're a fan of tanning mousses. It's not one I would buy because I prefer tanning creams, but it's still good and I'd use it again if I received another one (this one came in a sub box).
