The Express Bronzing Mousse is very easy to apply, but I recommend to use gloves or an applicator mitt (like this one) because it will stain your hands even if you wash them carefully after the application. It has a light golden brown guide colour that allows you to see if you missed a spot during the application.
It dries fast, but it still feels sticky for about 2 hours. The good news is that you can wash it off (with warm water, no soap) after 1, 2 or 3 hours so your skin is only sticky for a short period of time! I love the fact that I can apply it in the evening, rinse it off before going to bed and it won't stain my sheets.
It does have a slight biscuit scent after 2-3 hours, but it disappear completely after showering. By the way, your skin will be slightly darker but not really tan after showering, the colour will continue to develop for up to 8 hours so don't be afraid if you get out of the shower and think it didn't work!
The tan is even, natural-looking, and non-streaky! It fades beautifully without looking patchy and last up to 7-8 days on me, but I have to admit that I moisturizes my skin daily. Oh and I tried it on my face, it didn't break me out and the tan lasted a bit longer than usual.
I love this mousse, it's really awesome! I definitely prefer this one compared to the original St. Tropez Bronzing Mousse, because I can get a darker tan! I also tried the St. Tropez Dark Bronzing Mousse and while the Express Bronzing Mousse isn't as dark, I think I may prefer the Express formula because I can rinse it off in less than 3 hours and the guide colour is more wearable if I need to leave the house. 3 hours was darker than the original formula, but not as dark as the Dark Bronzing Mousse.
I don't recommend to leave it on for more than 3 hours unless you already have a medium skin tone! I tried it and it gave me a slightly darker tan, but it also had a hint of orange.
The St. Tropez Self Tan Express Mousse retail for $54 CAD for 200ml.
