How to apply the St.Tropez Express Tan Range


The secret to a flawless-looking tan is clean, smooth skin. 

Massage our Body Exfoliator onto skin 24 hours prior to tanning to buff away drpatches and create a smooth canvas for your tan. Focus on dry areas such as the feet, ankles, elbows and knees.  



Next, apply an oil-free moisturiser 2 to 3 hours before tanning, focusing on dry areas such as the feet, ankles, hands and elbows.  


Apply and blend

To tan fast, apply and blend your chosen St.Tropez Express self tanner.

  • St.Tropez Express MoussePump onto Tanning Mitt, then sweep over the skin using circular motions to ensure an even application. 
  • St.Tropez Express Gel: Pump onto a Tanning Mitt then use slow sweeping motions to apply evenly onto the skin.

Rinse after 1 hour for a light tan, 2 hours for a sunkissed glow, and 3 hours for a dark bronze. Your tan will continue to develop over the next 8 hours. 


Maintain your tan

Exfoliating and moisturising regularly helps your tan to last longer. 

Moisturise every day with our Tan Enhancing Moisturiser to reduce tan break-up, and prolong your glow for up to 3 days. Then, exfoliate with our Tan Enhancing Body Polish for an even fade.
