I’ve been using St Tropez for years. When I lived in a cooler climate I was using the first original mousse they had in the one shade at the time. Was a beautiful natural colour. Awful scent so strong. But I still used it as it was the best shade! Lasted a week before reapplying. Then I moved to a hot climate didn’t need to fake tan anymore. So the last year I’ve returned to a cooler climate again and have gone back to fake tanning. So I’ve picked up good ol St Tropez again and see they have an ultra dark shade. This is what I’m using now. (After trying a few other new ones I’ve seen on the market now). I’ve gone back to St Tropez because it’s a still a beautiful tan however... the ultra dark is not ultra dark. I sleep in the tan over night, wash off in the morning and it’s not dark. It’s a light tan that I would get if I used the original St Tropez colour. Possibly even lighter. So annoyingly I have to tan again the following night to get the ‘dark’ shade that will last 4-5 days max before it goes patchy. In saying this about St Tropez I’ve tried many other tanners and they’re all unimpressive. I’m still on the hunt but in the meantime I’ve settled with St Tropez and applying twice over consecutive nights to get a decent tan. The scent is much better now though. Less strong.

Simply doesn’t work. Bought it a week ago and have been using it everyday and have noticed zero color. Will be returning for a refund.

I use the St. Tropez tanning mousse without any problem, so I thought that their gradual tanning products might work for me, too. I purchased both the tinted and un-tinted gradual tanning lotions. I do not recommend either, although if I *had* to use another St. Tropez gradual tan again, I would choose this one (the tinted version). For a supposedly "gradual" tan, I was unexpectedly dark (and a tad bit orangey) after just ONE application had developed...and what's worse, it was a patchy, uneven tan. It only got more splotchy and uneven after a shower or two - it definitely did not fade evenly, like other products I've used. I've been self-tanning for years, so I know how to properly prep my skin for all manner of sunless tanning products. Normally, I'm also quite good at avoiding streaks, patches, dark spots, etc. The fact that a sunless tan would look so patchy, even with proper prep work, very careful application, and a full 30 minutes of drying time, just suggests a poor formula, IMO. If you have darker skin and a less-than-perfect tan wouldn't be super noticeable, then this might be an okay product for you. However, there are definitely better gradual tanners out there, even for darker skin tones. I regret not returning this to get my money back, honestly. St. Tropez should have just let this be a tinted body lotion, without the sunless tanner component.

Did absolutely nothing to my skin not even a tint. I used it three times and brought it back. I'm very familiar with tanning products as well, as I'm very pale. Did everything it said to do, even tried soaking in a bath tub in hopes it will settle into my skin better but nothing. My mom tried this as well and nothing happened for her. Very dissapointed!!

I wanted to love the St Tropez Luminous Veil Self Tanning Lotion. Unfortunately, I found it to be all fragrance and very little tan. This is marketed as a face self tanning cream that can be used before makeup. This does little to prime face or leave it ready for makeup application. Furthermore, this lotion is so gradual that after seven days of use I saw little to no tan at all. And the fragrance is so high it does not dissipate quickly. A definite pass in my opinion. There are so many other face tanners that are fragrance free and contain beneficial ingredients that this is a miss. My more detailed review can be seen here:
