Product Review: St Tropez Whipped Bronze Mousse

I have heard about this self tanner for 2-3 years now. There are numerous reviews on and youtube praising this product as the easiest to apply and the most natural color. I purchased the 8 oz bottle online (I'm unsure of the website) with tax and shipping for about $50. As of late this product has been super hard to find so if you can get your hands on one it is certainly worth trying. I've had my bottle since late March; I used it 1-2x a week in March, 2-3x a week in April, and 3-4x in May and I'm almost finished with it. A good amount of air is in the bottle to give that "whipped" texture, this also makes it a no brainer to apply. I'm not an amateur with self tanning but I'm certainly not an expert either and I haven't had any problems with streaks or spotting. The mousse itself is green which is really scary at first (especially on the face) but gives a great bronze color immediately afterwards and in about 4 hours a natural shade of tan. I use gloves to apply the product on my body but I use my fingers to apply on my face and wash thoroughly afterwards. I think this product would be really drying if I didn't use a moisturizer underneath it (and it helps to even the color). Honestly I will repurchase this, I'm not sure if it's my HG self tanner but $50 has lasted about 3 months and given pretty good results. I probably will try other tanners though, my only real complaint with this product is the color isn't as dark as I'd like. I've tried some tanners that you apply 1-2x a week for a tan that lasts a bit longer; this one blends into my NC20/NC25 skin and darkens maybe a shade or two. The color itself is pretty but maybe one I'd use more in the winter/fall months. Definitely give this a try though, a lot of people love it and it has HG status with them.
