I used to use st tropez moose I think it is very easy to apply as it goes on coloured so you can see where you are putting it and it helps you work out places you have missed as they will be white. I also find it goes on evenly and doesn't look streaky when first applied like the lotion does.
I think this is the best fake tan for newbies to tanning as it is so easy to use. I sometimes exfoliate and moisturise like you are meant to but then other times skip these steps and it only makes a slight difference. I find the tan does last slightly longer on exfoliated skin as it is scrubbing the dead cells away. I recommend that if you are going to moisturise before to do it a few hours before as if you put on the tan straight after it can affect how deep the tan will go.
When I put on the mousse it makes me looked tanned straight away. This mousse takes about 6 hours to develop however I like to leave it on for 8 to make sure its worked to its full potential! I normally apply the fake tan overnight and wash it off the following morning as I think this gives the best results (deeper, even tan) probably because you are not running around doing things. I don't put deordorant on whilst the tan is developing as this leaves me with white patches under my arms! Another good thing I like about this mousse is that if I make a mistake its very easy to correct it the next day as you just put the mousse on the area you need more tan on and it looks tanned instantly as it goes on brown.
I find it is best to apply with gloves on as the tan acts so quickly that by the time you have tanned and washed your hands the tan will have already developed on your hands and may stay on for a few days! The mousse lasts me about 5 days on my skin slightly shorter than the lotion but it is a lot easier to use.
Personally I don't like the smell of st tropez but I do think the mousse smells better than the lotion. I think this is a good fake tan to use if you want to quickly put it on and go on a night out.
The tan gives me a natural healthy looking tan and I really like the mousse.
I used to buy this on ebay for about £20.00 for a large bottle, they sell a small bottle 120ml and a large bottle 240ml. This bottle would normally last me about a month and a half used once a week. I think the lotion bottle lasts longer.
You can also buy this product from boots etc however it retails for £30.00 for the large bottle and £15.00 for a small bottle so it is a lot cheaper to buy off ebay if you can wait for it to arrive.
