Put your hands up, who likes a nice tan? Me!! I do, I do!! That said though, I am fully aware of the dangers of over exposure to the sun, so for the most part I do try to fake it. I have no desire to look like Magda from 'There's Something About Mary'.
However, those of you that know me will be aware of my frequent and many Fake tan disasters. Streaks, patches, orange hands, orange feet, just plain orange haha. It's safe to say I've spent a fortune and tried more than a few!! So imagine my surprise when someone introduced me to St. Moriz Dark Tanning Mousse. I'm a firm believer that you get what you pay for, so to say I was a little sceptical of a fake tan I'd never heard of that only cost £2.99 for 200ml, would be to say the least. But I thought what the heck and gave it a try...and I'm so glad I did!! Holey Moley!! This stuff is a miracle in a bottle!! I love it!!
Unlike most other Fake Tans I've tried, this one does exactly what it says on the tin "A professional flawless tan for a deeper sunkissed glow. Instant bronzing, longer lasting, faster drying, no streaks".
To apply I did the same as I always do. I shower and exfoliate but don't moisturise. I know a lot of people say to moisturise before application, but for me it just seems to lessen the effects of the tan. What I actually do though is moisturise my elbows, knees, fingers and toes. For this I use Clinique Deep Comfort Body Butter, but I guess you can use anything. Next I apply the tan. I like the Tanning Mousse in the St. Moriz range and I use a mitt to apply it (this is essential!!). I squirt some onto the mitt and apply in circular motions around my body (I get the Mister to do my back...which he's usually not too happy about). I honestly can't believe how good this product is, even the Mister comments on how easy it is to apply so it must be good!! Also I no longer have to wander around the house like a zombie waiting for my tan to dry, I was able to get dressed straight away and get on with my day. So anyway, onto the results...
This picture was taken straight after I applied the tan. I topped up after a couple of days to make sure the colour stayed the same all week. After seeing the results I went out and bought loads haha. That's how impressed I was. I got mine from BodyCare a UK high street store which unfortunately doesn't have a website so I can't post a link for you, but I think you may be able to get it on Amazon. If you are out and about on your travels though and happen to see this you should definitely pick some up and give it a try. I can't wait to try the St. Moriz Shimmering Souffle. Hope y'all find this useful :D
