In The Press: Glamour Loves St.Tropez

Mar 22, 2020 | Products

From cult favorites to the latest innovations, St.Tropez products have not only become every glow getters go-to, but have received rave reviews from the likes of Glamour Magazine, Beauty Bay and Cult Beauty (to name but a few). We constantly push the boundaries to improve your tanning experience and are on a mission to get everyone glowing with confidence …

1. We are the UK’s favourite & most trusted tanning brand†

St.Tropez review

  • We have a product for every beauty regime

Whether you’re looking for a sunkissed tan that lasts, need an instant boost of radiance or want to gradually build up your bronzed look, we’ve got the tanning essentials for you. Explore our range of mousses, lotions, gels, and mists to create your personalised tanning routine.

  • Our products are suitable for all skin tones and types

If you thought tanning was just for light skin, think again. Whilst many of our products are perfect for paler complexions, our Self Tan Dark, Extra Dark and Express Advanced bronzing mousses cater to darker skin tones. All of our products develop to suit your natural skin, enhancing your complexion and giving you a healthy, radiant glow.

Ella Simpson, Senior Marketing Manager at Glamour said:

“As a mixed-race woman, I’ve not worn fake tan many times in the past […] but the St.Tropez Self Tan Express Bronzing Mousse really gave me that sun-kissed glow I’ve been missing. It enhanced my natural complexion in a really subtle way and made me look much healthier and radiant. […] I’d definitely use it again if I was looking for a bit of a glow but couldn’t get out into the sunshine.”


2. We push the boundaries in tanning technology for YOU

We constantly strive to bring you the most advanced products that cater to what you want out of your beauty regime. That’s why we fused our most iconic products with natural skincare ingredients. Our new Hyaluronic Acid‐infused tanning essentials and groundbreaking Sunshine Complex technology make it easier than ever to get that radiant glow, whilst maintaining healthy skin.

  • Our groundbreaking Sunshine Complex technology

Infused with Vitamin C and D boosters, Hyaluronic Acid and up to 95% natural skincare ingredients, our Self Tan Purity Vitamins Bronzing Water range not only delivers a natural-looking glow, but allows your skin to reap the same benefits as it would from skincare.

As a St Tropez review in Glamour put it:

“St.Tropez’ new Purity Vitamins Bronzing Water Body Mist and Face Serum have been supercharged with impressive skincare ingredients. […] The inclusion of antioxidant-rich avocado oil, green mandarin water, hibiscus flower extract, vitamin C and hyaluronic acid, mean the body mist offers up superior hydration (which is essential for achieving an even, healthy looking tan). Meanwhile, the face serum earns its spot in your skincare routine with the additional benefit of some buildable bronzing action. […] The result is a natural, healthy-looking tan that truly brings the sunshine.”


  • Our ultra-hydrating fruity range

We also gave our iconic lotions and mousses a fruity makeover. By infusing our gradual tanner with Hyaluronic Acid and our bronzing mousse with Vitamin E, we created a pioneering range of tanners that keep your skin moisturised, whilst also giving it a beautiful golden glow. Oh, and we can’t forget the beautiful subtle watermelon scent, that gives you all those tropical paradise feels!

For a light, gradual tan and three days’ worth of hydration, opt for our Gradual Tan Watermelon Infusion Moisture Miracle Lotion. Ruth Doherty of says:

“There’s no need to apply a separate body cream with this sweet-smelling lotion by St Tropez. A new addition to the range, it builds a natural looking color, and is enriched with hyaluronic acid to keep skin soft and supple. We love.”


Alternatively, opt for our Self Tan Watermelon Infusion Bronzing Mousse and create a medium golden tan with up to 24 hours of hydration. In her St Tropez review, Daily Mail’s Victoria Woodhall wrote:

“This light bronzing mousse, with its delicate scent, sinks in immediately and the subtle tint makes it easy to see where you’ve applied. Four hours later, my South of France glow looked so natural!”


3. We’re globally loved

Every one of our products, from our most iconic cult classics to our latest launches, have all received rave reviews.

  • By tanning experts

Serena Connolly, Executive Assistant at Glamour and tanning guru said: “I have never been so impressed with a tanning product as I am with the St.Tropez Self Tan Express Bronzing Mousse”, whilst Cult Beauty wrote:

“You might not be off to the French Riviera but thanks to the self-tanning titans – St. Tropez – you can fake a sojourn on a super-yacht. The rapid-flash formula [of the Self Tan Express Advanced Bronzing Mousse] quickly bestows a warm, olive-toned glow and lends a luxe, two-weeks-in-Juan-les-Pins tan.”


  • By tanning newbies

We make our products as easy to use as possible, so even first-time tanners can achieve an all over glow in just one application.

Whilst Beauty Bay raved about how ‘effortless to use’ our products are, Hannah Robertson, Marketing Assistant at Glamour said:

“As a complete self-tan virgin, I was looking forward to seeing what the St.Tropez Self Tan Express Bronzing Mousse would do for me. […] The results were really quite seamless: I had no streaks, no stains on my clothes or bed sheets and there was none of that usual self-tan smell. Instead, I was left with a lovely extra ‘glow’.”
