No, the mitt must be purchased separately. However, it is completely worth the $6.

No, the applicator mitt is sold desperately at $6.99 retail price. It is basically a requirement because if you try to apply this mousse with your hands and not a mitt, it will be a disaster. Streaks everywhere

No, the applicator mit is sold seperately. I was using gloves to apply and would notice patches that didnt get rubbed in very well. After buying the mitt, I have no problem blending at all!

You will get several uses! I use this product about once a week, a little more here and there if needed, and a single bottle lasts at least two months.

For me it's lasted a while now, I have had 4 uses out of it where i've tanned my whole body and still have about a little under half of the liquid left in the bottle (I bought the 200ml). My height is about 5'5/5'6 so i'm sure it would last you quite a while!

It took only four pumps to do my whole body so I'm assuming, if used as directed (1-2x's per week) it will last two or three months.

Does the tanner rub off

I found this product did rub off easily. I have white sheets too and I did wear it to bed twice, but I was sure to wear long sleeves and long pants and even socks! And i still ended up with some rub off from my neck and hands. I ended up using it during the day instead to avoid the hassle.

No matter how long I allow it to dry, it does rub off on my sheets. Even though it washes out, I have begun to sleep on a dark colored flat sheet on the nights I use it.

Yes it does rub off on sheets, so I'd recommend sleeping on top of a dark blanket. Wear an old t shirt to bed and underwear that you don't really care about

Question
Compare to original
I have fair skin in the winter, and I LOVE the original st tropez bronzing mousse, and I bought this with the intentions that it would be a deeper color, however it did not make me anywhere near as tan as the orinal so I was confused. I did however love the green undertone because my skin is more yellow/olive. Then I thought, maybe it's designed for deeper skin-tones not for a deeper color. Did I have a bad experience or is my 'theory' correct? Thoughts? Thanks!

I found if you want a deeper color you simply layer the product. I will put on one layer, and then 10 minutes later I'll apply a second layer. I get the best results that way, and I'm very fair skin toned.

This happened to me as well. I expected a deeper, richer tan but it actually appeared to be orangish on my skin in the morning after I washed off the color guide. It wasnt a deep tan at all.

I thought the same thing! I expected it to be darker than original formula. I got great results applying it two nights in a row, with light exfoliation in between

Is the dark bronzing mousse better than just the regular bronzing mousse? And Is it better in lotion, spray or mousse? Can it be applied to the face?

Mousse is the best for application! I would definitely apply sparingly to the face and would test on a non conspicuous spot on your skin before applying on face. I usually just blend on my body and decollete and match my face with a bronzing powder.

No it isn't better. It's more green/streaky foam. I wouldn't put it on the face unless you want your complexion to break-out. Stick with the original it's the best.

Yes! I love the regular one and the color is perfect but I'd go through the bottle so fast since I would apply a lot of layers to get the color I want. With this darker one, I only do one pass, maybe two and I'm good for about 5-7 days with a little touch up. The bottle lasts me a lot longer. The color looks funky at first but looks good when you're done. This is a must have in my opinion but make sure you have the mit. I do think it's too dark for the face and use the clarins liquid face tanner. The lotions haven't worked well for me and the mouse and liquids just go on better and are darker. Hope that helps!

Question
How does this color compare to the original mousse's color?
I love the color that the original mousse turns me before I shower - but once I wash, it is much much lighter. Does this dark mousse leave you (post shower) with about the color you have with the original's application or darker? How do the two compare? Thank you!

This is very diffrent from the regular self tanning mouse. First of all, it is green when you pump it out and green on your skin. Literally, you will look like a stick of celery. But when you shower in the morning, you will be as tan as probably two consecutive applications of the regular. The green should wash down the drain, leaving you a nice golden color. I have used and loved the regular St tropez mouse but will be switching to this cause it takes less applications to achieve the tan I want.

Question
Anyone have a reaction to the dark and not the regular mousse?
I have used the regular mousse with great results. I decided to opt for the dark, and I had a reaction :( I've only used it once, so I'm not 100% it's the product. Anyone else have this experience. I'm apprehensive to try it again. But I don't want to write it off in the off chance it's not this product to blame.

I presumed the two had the same ingredients, just different amounts. But after looking at the bottle, I see I'm wrong. Please advise!

I have a slew of allergies and was okay with this product. It works even better when you apply it with their regular mousse at the same time; however, this one washes off very quickly. I stopped using it when I noticed my bath water and clothing turning green!

Question
Can you build a darker tan with multiple layers of the dark bronzing mousse?
I just tried this product over the weekend after a lot research on self tan products the last month or so and really love it; however, it isn't quite dark enough for me. Can you build a darker tan with this dark bronzing mousse? I have read where you can on the original mousse but not on the dark mousse. If so, do you do multiple layers the same night or wait the next night? Has anyone done this? Can you share your experience?
