About The St.Tropez Express Gel

How to apply the St.Tropez Express Gel

To achieve a flawless, streak-free bronze, all you need to do is: 

  • Exfoliate the skin the night before you tan using our Tan Enhancing Body Polish and Exfoliator. 
  • Moisturise dry areas (like the elbows, hands, ankles and knees) 2 to 3 hours before you tan using our Tan Enhancing Body Moisturiser. 
  • Using an applicator mitt, apply to your body in long sweeping motions (start with your legs and work upwards). 
  • Finish with your hands and feet (claw your hands to avoid tell-tale signs) using just the residual product on your mitt for a natural finish.  
  • Rinse off with warm water after 1 hour for a light tan, 2 hours for a medium golden bronze, or 3 hours for a deep, dark tan. 
  • Maintain your tan by moisturising daily and help it to fade evenly by exfoliating every 3 days.
