transfers but delivers an xeptional tan!
I left a previous review but feel I need to defend this particular product a bit more. Yes there are drawbacks to any "Instant" tan and many of you are experiencing that with St.Tropez. I have yet to use any "Instant" mousse/spray (brand) that does not transfer onto clothing or otherwise. It is without a doubt that St.Tropez Instant mousse does transfer however, the results are undeniably Fantastic! The tan looks absolutely Genuine! I get endless compliments and remarks about my "tan" The quality and color of this tan is exceptional! My Husband LOVES it. He is a strawberry blonde with freckles and very pasty fair skin. He doesn't naturally tan well but burns and I apply this Dark Mousse to him and WOW he is DARK and it looks so real and it changes his overall appearance! He looks better with the tan!!lol. Men don't generally want anything to do with "beauty products" but my Husband is TRILLED about this stuff. He doesn't care if it transfers just as long as he can look like he's been in the tropics on vacation and just having color perks the spirit and gives you a sense of "well being". It is unfortunate that it comes off onto clothing and I hate that, but I don't think there is anyway around it...the results are worth it! My bottom line is; I am grateful for a product that looks like a bona fide real deal tan! even if it does transfer. Hey, looks great for pictures! Please keep this product on TSC because you do have some "believers" out there!
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Green Tan Disappears in Pool
from FORT ERIE
This product in the DARK option has a definite GREEN tone. It does diminish and go "dirty brown" colour after a short time but I think it looks fake. However, because it is a darker tone than PRETEND TAN in the regular option, which I also own, I kept it to use on my legs in one coat applications. I found the colour washes off to a great extent just standing in the shower. To my horror, I find it completely disappears after swimming in the pool! What a waste of time in the application, waiting, moisturizing, rinsing the initial time so I won't leave a "green trail" in the pool, only to find it completely gone as soon as I get out of the water. There isn't even anything to stain the towels with. BUT, I recently mixed PRETEND TAN REGULAR with ST. TROPEZ dark, and swam, and I still have good colour. I think it is the PRETEND TAN mostly, but I will have to do a colour check to be sure. The ST TROPEZ does not leave as sticky a finish as the other brand, but I would have to say the other brand is more natural looking, and has better staying power.

Not as Spectaculor as Claims
from Hamilton, Ontario
I bought this product as a 4 piece Showstopper. It came with 2 bottles of Dark Bronzing Mousse, Face Bronzer and Mitt. I find this product to be medicore, nothing spectaculor as the host claims. It does stain, leaves a slight smell (nothing to gross) for the first few days, but then goes away. The mitt is awkward to manoeuvre. If you have someone who can help you apply it, it would be best. Some advice for application: You must fully and completely exfoliate especially around knees, elbows, hands and feet otherwise colour will not turn out well. I also recommend moisturizing prior to and after application to keep skin hydrated. Overall, it does give a decent colour to legs, but I find it is not as easy as the hosts makes it look on TV. I guess with practice it will get easier and better?
Comes Off On Everything! Beware
This was my first purchase & last purchase from this line. Sadly it comes off on anything you come into contact with. I totally agree with other reviewers. Turn your clothes inside out and you'll see it's brown. Not worth the hassel & trying to get stains out. The only good thing I can say is it's a nice brown if it would stay on skin & nothing else. Sophie & tsc should not make claims they can't back up.

BEWARE!! Comes off on everything!
I ordered this as the showstopper. My first time buying this line & my last. It seems that it does come off on everything you put on. The mouse is a good concept .At times it was like a liquid as well as the mouse texture. IT was a nice dark color but it was streaky & I was pretty mad that it transferred onto my white runners & pants & top. This product is just like all the other tanners who claim how great they are. NO IT'S NOT!!That's why I sent it back & won't bother with it again. Sophie as the spokesperson shouldn't be saying you can roll around on white couch or anything else for that matter.

from Port McNicoll Ont.
I found that this is a very good self tanning product." Of course", you cannot roll around on a white couch, I have a white leather couch and wouldn't dream of doing anything like that! I don't wear white the same day that I get my hair coloured either! It is a good product but the colour does transfer to the sheets "so what", it washes out and you get a great looking tan without the risk of getting skin cancer. Thank-You TSC for bringing us another great product.

less than perfect & indeed rubs off!
I strongly agree with the other reviewer that this indeed rubs off quite easily! I applied it before bedtime as the Guest speaker suggested and OM goodness the bed sheets and my pillow were BROWN!! It was rather disgusting. As well, I apply it in the day and wait even longer as suggested before getting dressed and IT RUBS OFF ONTO YOUR CLOTHES! When you remove your clothes at the end of the day, turn them inside out and they are BROWN sometimes even stained and the brown won't come out!!. Some of my sports bras are now STAINED BROWN particularly at the straps because of this self tanner and I have used stain remover but it doesn't remove all the discoloration it caused. There needs to be HONESTY when speaking about products, in this case, St Tropez instant tan mousse. Don't claim that it doesn't come off when clearly it does! This mousse also doesn't leave a "tan" when you wash it off, it is an INSTANT TEMPORARY dark tan only until it gets WET. I also went for a bike ride and it started to sprinkle rain... OH NO! my "tan" started to blotch and "run" causing unsightly white marks which actually was my pale skin showing through unevenly and blotchy!! what a mess. So I STRONGLY suggest wearing this stuff only on DRY days and DO NOT wear WHITE clothing. Try not to perspire as well cuz it will cause demarcation. Also if you don't mind waking up to filthy looking brown "stained" sheets!. These things are obviously left unsaid in the airings but are very accurate and true. Give it a try, seeing is believing. I am torn about this product because it does give you a dark INSTANT TEMPORARY tan but has so MANY drawbacks! It is also pretty expensive for a temporary tan for the day. I honestly do not know if I can/would recommend this to anyone..? sorry.
This was a 4-piece SS : 2 cans of dark mousse + face lotion + mitten for body application.First of all, it does NOT dry out in 60 seconds - please stop saying it!!! After the body application I use black flat sheet in my bed to sleep overnight - so it will not stain my white linens. The first thing in the morning I hit the shower to wash off the horrible smell and sticky substance, then I apply the body butter - to keep my skin soft and moisture.The mitten is OK and helps a lot to manage the even application, after two uses I washed it by hand and it seems remaining in one piece. The good thing despite all of those downsides I still have the desired result : an absolutely natural-looking glowing tanned skin, no stripes. No problem with the face lotion - I use make up sponge to apply the product - get great result, no pore-clogging, no breakouts, and I don't think it smells badly - even though it's hard to say after the body application. The bottom line, if you can handle the night of sticky-smelly body, so in the morning you'll look fabulous - then go for it, otherwise save the money - it is after all pricey.

Comes off on my sheets & clothes!
I got this when it was a showstopper, the 2 body dark cans, the face bottle, and the mitt.Unfortunately it comes off on my sheets and my clothes. You can NOT roll around on a white leather couch after applying this as the hostess said - you will ruin the couch.Going to send it back, not happy!
