I liked this the first couple of times I used it, but then it got streaky, and rubbed off in certain places. Did not look good, so I had to stop using it. My legs looked great right after using it, but the next day, they were a mess of streaks, my friend who also used a bottle, had the same thing happen. Not again! Think I will stay with the gels, next summer... Really liked the Tarte bronzing gel, never streaked, and look great.

It didn't work for me. Way too dark. And just made me look silly.
Rated 5 out of 5 by pistolpeteandlucy skeptical to try but LOVE LOVE LOVE!! *read TIP*
I have been using spray tans for the past 14 years. I am almost 31 and had skin cancer as a teen....I have tried SO MANY different spray tans but never a mouse. I do a spray tan every week at home (after discovering I could get it more natural looking if I spray myself). I have gotten pretty good at spray tans over the past 14 years! This product has CHANGED MY LIFE!!! I was so worried to try this since I have only used spray tans and had no clue how a mouse would work. The color and evenness is MUCH MUCH MUCH better than a spray tan!!! GORGEOUS COLOR!!! Much more realistic and less of an orange tone than my spray tan brands I use. With that being said, I must tell you....THIS GOES ON GREEN!!!! I was pretty hesitant when I started applying and ALMOST WASHED IT OFF...Thinking I was definitely going to look like the wicked witch of the west..My husband even said, "your green"!! However, once you wash it off the next day (I apply mine at night and wash off in the morning) you will have a natural golden color that is NOT green!! :-) USE GLOVES under the mitt they provide and on the other hand until your ready to lightly dust some mouse on your hands at the end of applying session. I followed the directions and applied the mouse with the mitt however my fingertips started looking very dark..(One hand from touching the top of the applicator because product seems to get on the top while squeezing down and I have no clue how my fingertips turned dark under the mitt but they did, possibly from switching the mitts from one hand to the next to get different parts of my body better).I caught it early and scrubbed them with a kitchen scrub pad, put on gloves...and all was fine :-) ALSO, PLEASE KNOW your knees, elbows, and feet will get very dark unless you apply the mouse around those areas...not touching the areas at first...then lightly brush the mitt over those areas AFTER you have blended in the mouse on your legs and arms around the knees, ankles, feet and elbows. Those areas will get much darker than the other parts of your body.... I did apply some mouse on my face VERY LIGHTLY with feather like strokes and VERY VERY little above my lip (as I have found it will look like a mustache if you put tan on that area) Color will transfer until you take a shower so I do it before bed and take a shower when I wake up.. I absolutely LOVE this product and will be buying it instead of spray tans from now on!!!! It is 100 times better than every single spray tan I have ever used!!

I have used every product in the market for the last 30 years. This product is the easiest to apply thanks to the mitt and produces the best tan. With that being said, you still have to be thorough when applying. My advice is to apply in front of a mirror and check that you applied evenly everywhere. (Behind the knees, inside of arms) using circular motions. Also, do not apply and wear anything other than black before you shower it off. I apply before bed, sleep in dark PJ's and shower in the AM. If you apply to your face your pillow case will have color on it. (Don't forget neck and ears) It does come off in the wash. Does not stain. Color transfer issue is why only 4 stars.

I was very apprehensive when purchasing this product. I've tried lotions before that only made my skin look orange and unnatural and left an unpleasant smell and made my skin very sticky. This mousse does the complete opposite. My skin is soft and the tan is a natural looking color. I bought the dark formula and at first I thought it might have been too dark because I'm typically very pale. I left it on for about four or five hours and then got a shower and it washed some of the color off but still left a deep and natural looking tan.

I have been using St. Tropez for years now.. I started with the lighter version, but I have recently been using the dark .. It delivers the most Beautiful, Natural tan.. I really love it! Plus it doesn't leave the "Tanner" smell on me..
Rated 5 out of 5 by Hotinphx This stuff is awsome
Wipe the mousse on sit around for four hours rinse off in shower perfect tan for the week
I use with gradual tan (med-dark) in between
Never buy the bronzer versions they are too orange

I have used St. Tropez before and loved it! I love a dark tan in summer, and have to apply several coats of self tanner to get the color I want. Thought I would give the "Dark" a try so maybe I would get the desired color with just one application. No such luck here. While I love that it has a "tracer color" so I can insure even cover, it get all over everything. Even if I left it dry before dressing, or getting into bed. It is everywhere in the morning. It also smells horrible once the tan starts to activate. I tried this product twice, and could not wait to take a shower in the morning to get the smell and tint off! The color payoff was not as dark as I hoped. It went back.
