How to apply St.Tropez fake tan mousse

Get ready to glow with these 5 simple steps: 

Step 1: Choose your favorite fake tan mousse

From classic to express to no-rinse self tanning mousses, we’ve got a range of mousses to suit your needs (more on that below).

Need help choosing the right one? Explore our St.Tropez Mousses here.  

Step 2: Prep

Preparing a smooth base is essential for a good tan. The day before tanning, exfoliate with our St.Tropez Tan Enhancing Body Polish and Exfoliator. Then, a few hours before applying self tan, moisturise dry areas such as the feet, hands and knees with a St.Tropez Tan Enhancing Body Moisturiser. 


Step 3: Apply

Pump the St.Tropez fake tan mousse onto your Luxe Applicator Mitt and sweep all over the body in circular motions for a streak-free finish. Our lightweight mousses glide over the skin for easy application. 


Step 4: Rinse

Shower off after 4 to 8 hours. Always check the instructions for your individual product before rinsing. Our St.Tropez Express Advanced Bronzing Mousse can be rinsed off in 1 to 3 hours, whereas our Purity Bronzing Water Mousse doesn’t need to be rinsed. 

Step 5: Glow

In 4 to 8 hours, you’ll see your skin develop into a natural-looking sunkissed bronze.
