Dries quickly as said, develops a deeper more natural looking colour than St.Tropz Auto Bronzant, looks fab in artificial light- so if your going out, it looks amazing! I apply the mousse about 4-5 hrs before going out, and leave it on (but don't forget to buff to prevent streaks!) and it develops looking very dark. Just make sure your not going to a strongly lit club/restaurant, as this will reveal the intensity of colour (which is quite strong when left on!).
Would only recommend it if you already have tanned/medium or olive skin, as it develops into a more golden colour, which can look VERY orange on pale or very fair skin. Fades VERY patchy, and needs to be exfoliated and moisturised from day 2 after application. Stains pale bed clothing if you decide to apply it straight before bed, and absolutely stinks! Can look very patchy on legs, so I wouldn't recommend it for this area (especially if you shave) and looks orange in summer sunshine.
When I first tried St Tropez Self-Tanning Mousse, I totally fell in love with St.Tropez- I've tried just about every product (except St.Tropez Self Tan Spray). It really looks fab in artificial light, so a definate if your going out clubbing and pubbing. When applied correctly, only a few streaks. Though that's about as good as it gets, as mentioned before, goes very patchy while fading and looks completely fake in natural light- would only recommend for tanned/medium or olive skinned ladies/gents.
