St. Moriz Instant Self Tanning Lotion

27 comments
Hello Lovelies,
Today's post is going to be a review of the St. Moriz Instant Self Tanning Lotion. 
I love fake tan and have been fake tanning for about 10 years now.
I'd heard quite a few good things about St Moriz., but in all honesty I was a little bit dubious. Can a fake tan that costs around £4.99 really be any good?
 Well  I spotted this product in Bodycare and decided to give it a try! Sadly Bodycare is only available up north, but I have also seen this in my local Wilkinsons. It is  also available to buy online from places like Tescos.
Like I always do the night before I fake tan, I exfoliated my skin and used a body butter. This is to make sure the tan goes on evenly, lasts longer on your skin and does not look patchy.
The following night I applied the St. Moriz Instant Self Tanning Lotion.
The first thing I noticed when I applied this was the smell. It smells very clean and fresh. No sign of the dreaded biscuit scent you get with some fake tans! That really surprised me. Somehow I was expecting a cheaper brand of fake tan to have a terrible scent. This is certainly not the case with the St. Moriz Instant Self Tanning Lotion!
The consistency of this product is more similar to a gel rather than a cream. I blended it into my skin using a self tanning mitt. It was really easy to blend and dried in under 5 minutes so I was able to put on my PJs and go to bed to let the colour develop over night. 
My PJs was slightly stained from the tan the next morning but I know this will come out in the wash so it does not bother me. 
This is my arm before I applied the St. Moriz Instant Self Tanning Lotion
Please note that my arm isn't completely fake tan free. 
Even though I exfoliated the night before, it would probably take me a good couple of weeks to get myself back to my natural skin tone.
Here is my arm the next morning after I had applied the St. Moriz, left it to develop over night and showered off the brown guide colour.
As you can see my arm looks a lot darker the next day.
I have not used any filters on the images so you can see the true colour of the tan. 
Personally I would not put this tan on and go out before showering the guide colour off first. 
It's really better to leave this product on so it can develop over night and to wash it off the next day.
The St. Moriz Instant Self Tanning Lotion has given me an even, dark and streek free tan. My skin doesn't feel dried out either. All this for £4.99. Not bad at all!
So if you are thinking of giving this product a go, I can highly recommend it. 
I think this product is particularly suitable to those of you who may be new to fake tanning. It really is foolproof and so easy to use. And comes with instructions on the bottle so you really can't go wrong!
 Do any of you use fake tan? Let me know your thoughts in the comments below!

  1. Great review hun! I think I have fake tanned once in my life and it didn't go too well aha. Never would of thought cheap fake tans could be any good but I'm definitely going to try this now! The colour looks lovely, not too orangey at all which is something I've always been scared of as I'm really pale. Thanks for sharing, can't wait to order some :) xx

  4. A colleague of mine has been using this recently and his tan is so dark, yet natural. I was really keen to try it myself, but sceptical like you due to the low price tag.. He he! Reading your review though, I think I just might give this a go! Great post! :) x x

  5. I use Palmers Cocoa Butter with fake tan in it which is great as it's moisturising but this looks like it'd be perfect for a quick fix of tan :) Liked this post a lot!

  15. I put this on for the first time last night and have just showered this morning. It looks like its just washed off as I don't feel it's made a difference to my skin. I guess its just me that isn't using it right. Will try again later.
