St. Tropez Taster Collection

What is it: Get your tan off to a great start with this trio of mini bronzing products, including a Tan Optimiser Body Polish, Tan Optimiser Body Moisturiser, and Self Tan Tanning Lotion.

Who is it for: Anyone who wants to prepare their skin for an even, natural-looking tan. Regardless of weather, you'll always look your best!

Why is it different: The specially formulated Body Polish helps you lightly remove tired, dead skin cells, before the Body Moisturiser, packed with a luxurious blend of ingredients, hydrates your skin and leaves it looking supple, sleek, and hydrated. Finally, use the Self Tan Bronzing Lotion for a deeper, richer tan.

How do I use it: First, exfoliate the skin and moisturize dry areas thoroughly. Apply Self Tan Tanning Lotion and wait until touch dry before getting dressed. Try not to get wet or sweat for at least four hours. Finally, shower off to reveal a perfectly golden, natural-looking tan.

Use Tan Optimiser Body Polish two or three times per week when showering or bathing. Massage onto wet skin using circular motions, concentrating on elbows, knees, and feet to prepare skin prior to self-tanning. Rinse well.

Apply Tan Optimiser Body Moisturiser daily as needed.

Application Tips

Application Tips

Before You Tan

Exfoliate your skin with an oil-free exfoliator prior to tanning. Remember, your skin is the canvas for your bronze glow! The better the condition of your skin, the better your St. Tropez glow.

Shaving is fine to do beforehand. For best results, waxing should be completed 24 hours prior to tanning. Waxing or depilatory creams will remove your St. Tropez glow, so use them prior to tanning.

It's very important to moisturize before tanning! Pay special attention to elbows, knees, hands, the back of your wrists, feet, the back of your heels, and any dry-skin areas prior to tanning. For best tanning results, use an oil-free moisturizer. If you have any hyperpigmentation (dark patches), they should also be moisturized beforehand to give you an even glow. We don't recommend moisturizing your entire body because it'll give you a lighter finish. The St. Tropez tan will moisturize your skin when you apply it.

For a Long-Lasting Tan

To create the longest-lasting glow, we highly recommend tanning in the evening and sleeping with your fresh application on. Try to wait eight hours before washing. During your first wash, you may think the glow is disappearing, but it's just the instant color guide coming off. It's more effective to wash with warm water first because hot water temperatures can dilute your initial color.

Application Tips

St. Tropez is very advanced. If you apply the tan unevenly, you'll still have an even glow if you allow the color to develop for eight hours and then take a shower. Your skin can only absorb a certain amount of product, so as long as your skin is covered, you can't go wrong!

If you wish to build your tan, simply apply more product the next day. If you find you love your skin with a double application of our Self-Tan Bronzing Mousse (A94289), we recommend that you switch to our Self-Tan Dark Bronzing Mousse (A232761). Either way, our intelligent tan technology will give you the color that suits your own personal pigmentation and body chemistry.

Applicator Mitt

The applicator mitt will ensure that your palms stay clean and create a streak-free, professional finish. Simply put a few pumps of product onto the applicator mitt and smooth it over your skin.

To clean your applicator mitts, simply wash them in the sink with water and allow them to air dry between applications.

For Hands and Feet

Hands and feet are self-tan trouble areas. The skin is different in these areas and the tan will go a lot deeper if you're not careful. To start, add moisturizer in between your fingers and toes and cover your cuticles. Don't forget to apply moisturizer to the back of your heel crease and on top of any calluses or severe dry skin to guarantee a true, natural-looking finish.

Apply the tan to your hands and feet with your applicator mitt (using the excess product from your body application) or use a very small pea-sized amount of tan. Blend downwards to your fingers and toes and in between them so you don't get a striped look. Avoid getting tan on your nails or cuticles.

For Your Face

If you have bleached, gray, or porous hair, we recommend that you apply a light layer of moisturizer to your hairline to prevent any staining. If you have fair eyebrows, wipe them with a cotton swab after application.

If your skin is on the dryer side, apply your normal moisturizer to your face and wait a few minutes before applying your tan. The St. Tropez tan should be incorporated into your normal facial skin-care routine as the last product you apply. If you have normal or oily skin, you can apply the tan directly onto your cleansed and dried face if desired.

Self-tanning your face will instantly make you appear younger looking, fresher, and glowing. A St. Tropez tan will help conceal imperfections! It also gives you a makeup-optional finish!

Remember to moisturize your skin daily. It'll make your glow last longer. Exfoliate every few days between applications to prevent any product buildup so your tan always remains even and flawless.

If you're going to the beach or pool, apply your tan the day or evening before and wash the initial instant color guide off in the shower at least eight hours after application. Apply your sunscreen and wear your own natural-looking glow with pride!

For Contouring

Everyone looks better with a glow. You instantly feel more confident with glowing skin.

Shaping in muscle definition and sculpting a slimmer look is easy! Apply one coat of the regular St. Tropez color for an overall base. After you shower the next day, start sculpting. Apply a second coat of tan along your shins, starting just under your knee and stopping at the center of your foot. Sculpt a small amount of product around your calf muscle and then sweep the product down your inner thigh and along your outer thigh. The darker color along the sides of your thigh will make it appear slimmer!

Next, smooth the tan along the sides of your stomach. You'll love this look!

Work the tan along your shoulder blades and the front of your arms, sculpting a question-mark shape around the bicep. Flex your muscle and smooth the tan underneath your bicep.

You can work the tan underneath your jawline to chisel your face. To etch in some serious cheek bones, apply the tan with your bare fingers. Use a small amount of product and blend it just under the cheekbone. Wash your hands after application.
