St. Tropez...lotion, mousse, or spray?

I am pregnant and cannot (and don't want to) use tanning beds this summer...I know I will get sun though, and even with sunscreen I will end up getting a tan line. (halter top)

I want a quick tan that will last a couple days for each of the weddings, especially the one in late August when I know I will have tan lines.  (The other one is next Saturday.)  Which of these products do you think I should get?  I know it depends on my preference; to be honest, I haven't used self-tanner since high school 10+ years ago so I don't know my preference.

The mousse is my favorite by far! It is pretty goof-proof, though the flocked mitt makes application even smoother!

Re: St. Tropez...lotion, mousse, or spray?

I have used the mousee (with the mit, the mit is crucial) and it works great.  It is easy to apply, and gives a natural streak free tan.  I have tried lotions from other brands, but no matter what lotion I use, it always streaks no matter how much i rub it in or how careful I am.  I have tried sprays from other brands, but again I have issues with streaking.

Re: St. Tropez...lotion, mousse, or spray?

Yeah, I am definitely getting the mit! Smiley Happy

@carrierose- The tan towels from Kate Somerville are super easy to use also. The color is great and they last about a week. Just wanted to give you another option to have.

 

P.S.- Your name makes me the think of the beautiful roses I have in my back yard. Smiley Happy

Re: St. Tropez...lotion, mousse, or spray?

I like the gradual mousse. It's not a total shock of color, I can easily build-up to desired shade, and I can spot missed spots easier & correct the issue. 

Re: St. Tropez...lotion, mousse, or spray?

I like the gradual mousse.as well. It's a gorgeous shade and one application is all it takes to see instant color. I never get streaks using it either.

Re: St. Tropez...lotion, mousse, or spray?

I just did my first application of the mousse...I applied it on my back and just covered everywhere, but couldn't rub it in so that there were no more streaks, but the bottle says that you will only get patches where you don't put the product, so here's hoping it all looks great when I take a shower tomorrow morning!

 

I have one more application planned tomorrow night and then the wedding is Saturday.

Re: St. Tropez...lotion, mousse, or spray?

Please keep me updated on how the tan turns out for you and if anything went wrong! I'm also looking into trying a tanner from St. Tropez Smiley Happy

Re: St. Tropez...lotion, mousse, or spray?

I am glad I have one more night to fix mistakes...I didn't exfoliate well enough and my knees are dark, and my ankles/sides of feet look crazy where I stopped putting it on, it's streaky there, as well as my underwrists.  I wore gloves and then applied the tanner to the back of my hands with a makeup sponge, watered down, but I guess I forgot about making sure my wrists were covered to my palm.


All in all, it looks good in the spots that are most important for the wedding...arms, decollate, neck, and face.  I put it on my face with a watered down makeup sponge as well.  I'm hoping I have this down for my sister's wedding in August, where the dress is tea length and not a gown!
