St.Tropez - 3 steps to the perfect tan


                                                                 [st tropez banner (190)]

Step 1  -  Exfoliate in the bath or shower using St.Tropez Body Polish concentrating on the elbows, hands, knees, ankles and feet.

Step 2  -  Apply St.Tropez Body Moisturiser to the elbows, knees, ankles and feet.

Step 3  -  Applying the Auto-Bronzant


The tan can be applied full strength to the face or custom blended to a lighter shade by mixing the product in equal proportions with St.Tropex Body Moisturiser.  The more moisturiser you use, the lighter the tan will be.  Spread the tan/mixture evenly to the face.  Using a mix of tan and moisturiser blend the mixture down towards the collar bone.  Wash your hands.


Put on a pair of tight fitting latex gloves to prevent staining of the hands.  Apply the Auto-Bronzant with an even stroking movement finishing at the ankle.  Work the tan gently over the area until it turns into a creamy consistency.  Blend the tan into the feet using Body Moisturiser.  With a tissue remove any tan from the toenails.  Check that you have not missed any areas.  If you have simply fill in the gaps.


Repeat 'the legs' taking the tan up to the neck on the front and back of the body.  Ensure you do not miss any areas.


Apply the product to the outer arms finishing at the wrist.  Mix the tan and moisturiser in equal proportions and apply to the inner arm taking to the wrist.


Remove gloves and thoroughly moisturize your hands.  Apply a small amount of tan to the back of one hand and rub together with the back of the other.  Blend the tan into the hands using the moisturiser.  Tissue off tan from the palms and finger nails.


  1. The guide colour may look slightly streaky.  This is normal.  After the tan has dried gently stroke off any streaks using a Soft Mit.  If you are tanning in the evening before bed, the buffing is not necessary.
  2. Shower off the guide colour at least 4 hours after the application.  The longer you leave the tan on, the darker the finished result.
  3. Use St.Tropez Body Moisturiser daily to maintain you tan.
  4. Ensure you tan fades evenly.  Exfoliate every other day with St.Tropez Body Polish.
  5. In the sun, use Step 4, St.Tropez Sunscreen.  This will not strip off you St.Tropez tan.
  6. For a more dramatic, darker look to the face apply St.Tropez Powder Bronzer.
