Review: St Tropez Bronzing Mousse

Hey Dolls :)

I've been using the St Tropez Bronzing Mousse on and off for the last couple of months and I just can't make up my mind about it...


The mousse applies quite easily - it has a slight tint to the formula meaning you can spot any possible streaks. However, it's quite fluid and you have to work rather quickly to get an even coverage so I find it's easiest to just work in small areas. It also dries quite quickly, cutting out any awkward walking about naked with arms outstretched shenanigans. Another thing I should note is that it smells quite nice - soapy.


For my perfect tanned colour, I probably have to use St Tropez 2-3 times in a row overnight which I was actually a little disappointed in. I am pale - mamma Carr used to call me milk bottle (boo) and being honest I was used to L'oreal Sublime perfecting my colour in one night. However, on a huge positive there was no horrid fake tan smell the next morning and barely any transfer onto my sheets.


St Tropez claims to give you a 'perfectly golden, natural looking tan'. I think this is where I am properly undecided...

The observant amongst you will notice this is pinched from a previous FOTD, I am a lazy blogger - I do apologise :D

To me that doesn't look very golden. Or very natural. I think there is a serious risk of being on the slightly orange-y side.


Urgh. It won't come OFF! Every time I have used it I exfoliate my socks off and it doesn't budge, instead going horrible and patchy. It most definitely does not fade nicely. Also here I should point out that there is a patch of skin on my neck that gets really irritated and itchy - right above my collar bone, how odd!

After all of this, I still don't hate it. I just can't make up my mind, have any of you tried the mousse, and if so what are your thoughts?

Lots of Love


  1. Hmm...I've wanted to try this for such a long time now but orange does not sound good to me. I'm also not a fan of self-tanners that start looking patchy rather than fading :( Thanks for the review!

  2. Great post - I've been thinking of trying St Tropez for a while as I'm always hearing so much about's a shame it is a little orange but I like how it has no "fake tan" can never tell when you're buying a tanner whether it'll have that smell when it develops or not! x

  3. Tiffany - honestly I can't get the pactches off on the outside of my arm!

    Lily - It's an odd one there are some great positives and some really bad negatives!



I do love a good comment!
