PROFESSIONALLY APPLIED AIRBRUSH SPRAY TAN [ST TROPEZ]
The St. Tropez Spray Tan Treatment is the quickest way to get a professional finish. Delivered in around 10 minutes by our talented tanning team, this light airbrush spray application is immediate drying and features Aromaguard™ fragrance technology which eliminates the tell-tale self tan aroma by at least 70%.
Spray tans are self adjusting, working with your natural skin tone. Melanin technology ensures your tan is automatically tailored to suit your complexion, by achieving a tan that will only go as dark as your skin would naturally tan from the sun. St Tropez utilises an olive-green base to counteract any orange tinge, for a flattering, golden-brown glow.
Tans look and last best when applied to well-prepared skins. Expect your St Tropez tan to last 2-10 days depending on your skin type and how you care for it.
ST TROPEZ CLASSIC TAN
For a natural looking self-tan, the Classic Bronzing Mist application is a favourite amongst both new and experienced tanners. This formula offers a medium-level, believable tan that will last longest of all the tans in the series. Develops over 4-8 hours.
ST TROPEZ DARK TAN*
This formula provides a darker, most intense colour, utlising melanin technology to ensure your tan is tailored to suit your individual skin tone. This Dark Tan delivers an exquisitely deep, gorgeous glow. Develops over 4-8 hours. *Note: St Tropez formulas are well known for delivering a natural golden glow and do not deliver a hyper-dark or super-dark tan.
ST TROPEZ EXPRESS 1-3 HOUR TAN*
The Express tan lets you select how dark you want to go by choosing when you shower utlisising intelligent shade technology. For a light, sunkissed glow – shower after 1 hour, For a golden-bronze tan – leave on for 2 hours, for a deeper, darker result – wait 3 hours or more. After showering your skin is left smooth and silky. You will have a light colour and the self-tan actives will continue to work, developing and deepening into your chosen tan over 8 hours.

Test Patch $0
PRE-CARE AND POST-CARE FOR SPRAY TANS
Book your tan to be applied 1-2 days before your event for the best results. Express tans can be booked for same day events, however only select these if time is a factor as they tend not to last as long.
If you have never used self tan products before (these can be professional or home tans) or St Tropez, we recommend a test patch 48 hours prior. We apply a small amount of the self tan product with a cotton bud to the inner crease of the elbow or behind the ear and leave to dry. If any contra-actions occur such as redness, swelling, inflammation or itching, avoid using the product as this is a positive reaction for sensitivity. If no reaction occurs then it is fine to proceed with the full body application.
If you wax, please do so at least 48-72 hrs prior to your tan application.
If you shave, please do so the night before your tan application, and apply a good quality hydrating moisturiser afterwards (remembering to wash this off before your tan appointment - see point 5).
Use a loofah or mitt to thoroughly exfoliate the skin prior to your tan appointment (complete this in the shower you have on the day of your appointment).
Avoid applying moisturiser, lotions or body scrubs that leave an oily residue on the day of your appointment. These will act as an inhibitor to the tan and may negatively affect the final result.
Bring dark coloured, light weight and loose clothing to wear after your tan to avoid marking light clothing, or rubbing the tan off, and to feel most comfortable. A strapless bra or bathing suit is recommended to protect rubbing in the shoulder area, especially if you are wearing a strapless dress to an upcoming event.
The spray tan formula contains a makeup style bronzer as an application guide. This will wash off in your first and second shower. Don't be concerned if the tan looks uneven after application, any excess bronzer will wash off when you shower, leaving an even tan.
Leave the tan on for 4-8 hours to develop before showering, or overnight for the deepest, longest lasting colour (*Express tan washes off in 1-3 hours).
Remember to sleep on dark sheets to avoid marking bedding.
Have light, cooler showers if you wish to maximise tan longevity.
Moisturise daily to preserve the tan for the longest time. For an extra colour boost, try St. Tropez Tan Intensifier, a moisturiser with a hint of tan.
Wear SPF sunblock every day - self tan does not offer any sun protection.
To help the tan fade evenly, exfoliate every 3 days with a tan-specific exfoliant. We recommend St Tropez Body Polish, available at MISS FOX which will lightly buff the tan to refresh it.
Use a tan remover mitt when you are ready to remove the tan, generally after 7-10 days.
