I had heard rave reviews of St Moriz for an age now but I didn’t believe the hype; surely a tan costing the guts of a fiver couldn’t be any use?
How wrong was I? Extremely wrong as it turns out! Two weeks ago in Penneys I picked up a 200ml pump of St Moriz mousse in medium and one of those tanning mitts for the grand total of €6.50.
The next day I showered and shaved before I left for work and lashed on my Soap and Glory Righteous Butter to really get my skin nice and moisturised. That evening I applied the mousse using a tanning mitt and was careful to avoid product overload around the knees, ankle and elbows. I always use disposable gloves too when applying; I put a glove on my hand then into the tanning mitt as I find if you don’t you can end up with an orange palm. I slept overnight and showered as usual the next morning.
The tan applied really easily and didn’t stink, which is always a plus. There is a distinct hint of green to the mousse but it applies and dries to a nice golden brown. Check me out above! Compared with some of the more well known brands that I have tried I am really amazed! I’ve ditched the gradual tans since discovering this and the Fake Bake I save for special occasions wont be re-purchased. The medium shade is perfect for pale people but only those wanting a tan. If you just want to take the blue look off yourself then you would probably be better off sticking to a gradual tanner or Sally Hansen Airbrush Legs.
