With that said, St. Tropez is the first self tanner that ever looked like a REAL natural tan on me. Like most everyone else I have tried everything and always looked silly waiting for my newest mistake to wear off. I worked in a tanning salon years ago, and even then the color I got from tanning beds looked fake on me. People always asked if it was a bottled tan, and that was my actual skin color!
I don't smell anything when applying this. After any self tanner has been on for many hours it starts to product a scent. It's the exact same smell with all brands, because it's the chemicals developing. The only difference is what fake perfumey smell each brand tries to mask it with. St. Tropez doesn't give it any smell, so it isn't until MANY hours later, after the tan has developed (and when you should be in washing off the bronzer) that there is a smell.
In the last 2 years using this product, I have never had an issue with streaking, and I am not sure how you can. As long as the bronze mousse applied is covering your skin, than the area gets tanned evenly. The bronze mousse color itself will look streaky sometimes while applying, but that's what you wash off once your tan has developed. Don't plan on putting this stuff on and going out shopping for the day. It's something you will want to put on before bed at night so you can wake up, hop in the shower to wash off the bronzer and come out with a phenomenal brown tan.

However, when I dispensed the mousse from my most recent bottle, it was GREEN! I thought that maybe St Tropez had changed the tint of the product to make it easier to see where it had been applied, so I went ahead and applied it anyways. Big mistake! It turned my legs and feet GREEN!!
At this point, I realized I had defective product, so I contacted St Tropez to let them know they might have manufactured a defective lot. Instead of resolving the issue, they took no ownership for the issue. Their reply? "We extensively test our products before release, and this was not an issue."
Since a picture's worth a thousand words, take a look and decide for yourself if you want your skin stained GREEN by this nasty product. Personally, I'm not giving anymore business to a company that doesn't stand by its products or do right by its customers.
The absolute key to this tanner is applying it with an applicator mitt. Without a mitt, your results will probably be better than most other products, but nothing to write home about. With a mitt, the mousse goes on smoothly and easily, covers and colors perfectly, smells pleasant, dries quickly into a natural, non-orangey tan, and, believe it or not, does not rub off or stain. No more ruined robes, stained bra straps, or embarrassing orange marks where tanner rubbed off on white or light colored clothing. It's a little pricey, but lasted quite a long time.
There is one major drawback, however: the applicator mitt is not included with tanner purchase, and they charge a ridiculous price - $7.00 - for the inferior pice of junk they sell separately. This is a big mistake on St. Tropez' part. Fake Bake - one of their biggest rivals, and an excellent product, does include a mitt, and it's far better than St. Tropez's. ST's cheap throwaway piece of foam only lasted halfway through my first bottle (sort of my mistake - I knew it was junky, but was a little too rough on it when I rinsed it, and the plastic lining collapsed in on itself). Since there was no way I was going to waste another $7.00, and my equally-pasty sister was raving about the very highly-rated Fake Bake, I figured I'd try it out and would also be able to use the FB mitt for my remaining St. Tropez.Read more ›
