I should be revising...

...anything to cause a diversion! Just a quick update on fake tan!

I love fake tan, I'm naturally pale so fake tan for me is a must. It definitely makes me look healthier and I feel better in myself when I'm tanned. I've tried most self tanners out there, bar St Tropez and Fake Bake (something which I want to invest in in the future) and I've had my experiences with all. Recently, I've been using more of the gradual tan lotions, such as Nivea Gradual Tan and Garnier SummerBody. They have left a nice, golden colour, however I didn't like how long it took to build that colour up!

I came across "St.Moritz" Instant Self Tanning Mousse (I know, a TERRIBLE name, such a rip off from St.Tropez haha) in a local beauty shop in town. This shop sells discounted make-up and beauty products, things that you don't see on your Boots or Superdrug selves, mainly because they have been discounted. Most places probably have one of these shops.

I was attracted to this fake tan, mainly by the shape of the bottle. Very St.Tropez-esque. The lady in the shop said that it was a "best seller" and lots of people had bought it so far. I thought I may aswell give it ago, it was only £3.49 and if it was horrible then it's not like I have wasted a lot of money on it.

I LOVE THIS. It is, by far, the best fake tan I've tried. It leaves a gorgeous deep tan colour, something that can only be achieved by two weeks in the Med! It is a mousse that I apply all over, evenly rubbing in. It has a colour guide too, so you can see where you are putting it. At first, you look very dark (depending on how much mousse you apply) then it develops in 4-6 hours. Now I put this on before I go to bed and the next morning, I'm so tanned, it can look a bit stupid but hop in the shower and then you are left tanned and beautiful. I'd highly recommend this fake tan, if you can find it.

TIP: you must, and I say must, wash your hands after applying about every 5 minutes. The colour guide is so dark, your hands will turn black!


  1. I saw this today in T.J Hughes for cheap, can't remember the price though! Even though im mixed race, im pale and wear fake tan for nights out too! I've found that l'oreal nutrisummer works best for me.. never tried st.tropez but might try this stuff as its so cheap in T.Js :D

  2. yeah its worth a try! and for the price, you really cant beat it haha :)
