This Water Mousse Makes You Look Like You Just Vacationed in Hawaii

Let’s Just Get to the Point:
At-home tanning can be tricky to master, however, this lightweight water mousse by St. Tropez allows for a natural-looking golden tan without the mess.
If You Want to Know More:
St. Tropez is one of the leading brands in the self-tanning category, and for good reason. Its various products allow for a streak-free glow, reaching professional level results without ever having to leave the comfort of our own homes. Knowing this, it’s no surprise that its latest launch is causing such a stir in the industry.

The St. Tropez Purity Bronzing Water Mousse ($42) just came to market this year and is the newest bronzing product to make our summer must-haves list. The clear, water-foam formulation creates a transparent, streak-free tan that develops over four to eight hours after just one application—with no need to rinse off.
While there are self-tanning options out there that can create a similarly bronzed look to this one, the St. Tropez Purity Bronzing Water Mousse has two important features that seriously set it apart from the others: its tropical scent and 100-percent naturally derived formula. The vegan-friendly tanning agents in this product let you rest assured that you’re not slathering your body with harmful chemicals. The scent, on the other hand, is a beachy-coconut mixture that makes you want to apply the product instead of dreading it.
To use, exfoliate 24 hours before putting on the mousse. Then, right before you apply the product, moisturize any extra dry areas (like the elbows or knees) for a more even look post-tan. When applying, sweep the formula along your limbs in long strokes from the ankles upward. After a few hours, you’ll look like you’ve just vacationed in the tropics without having to drop hundreds on an airline ticket—talk about a win-win!
