…damn that’s a lot to review. I was off sick from work when the postman delivered the goodies from the amazing PR team behind St Moriz. Cheered me right up.
That was a few weeks ago now, and I’ve been using all of the products non-stop. They are simply gorgeous.
We all know about St Moriz, it’s the cheaper rival to St Tropez. They’ve recently launched four new products, including a new mitt, gradual tanner, tan primer and the one that piqued my interest – the Insta-Grad. Yep, instant tan whilst the gradual one develops underneath.
Absolutely loving this, I’ll be having to get some more soon. Had my concerns about developing into a tangerine over a few hours, but it just didn’t happen. Using the new mitt, I applied all over. It does come out rather dark, but it went on really smoothly and blended out to a dark-ish but still natural tan – the perfect colour for me. You can see a picture below of one leg done – absolutely shite photography by me, but you get the picture. It dries really, really quickly with no greasiness or stickiness, which on the one hand is great, but also means you have to work quite quickly to ensure you get everywhere evenly.
It doesn’t transfer much, even onto our white bedsheets. It comes off in the shower, leaving behind a lighter, golden tan which I’d say lasted me a good couple of days. I’ve been using it every weekend since. 10/10 would recommend.
I’ve been using the gradual tanner in the week. It gives a similar shade to the washed off Insta-Grad I mention above. It’s perfect for everyday as it’s moisturising too, and I don’t feel like it’s too much for work either. I’m going to squeeze some out into a 100ml bottle for when we go to Thailand to boost my golden glow.
Again, pretty much in love. I use this in the shower about twice a week to stop that weird self-tan orangey build up. It’s got quite fine particles, which suits me fine as some of the coarser ones irritate my skin. It smooths the skin’s surface to create the perfect base for new tan.
I am really enjoying ALL of the new products. Side note: they all smell amazing too and don’t have a weird biscuity smell I seem to find in many of my other tans. I really would recommend, and at less than £10 per item, you’d be silly not to.
I’m now looking forward to flashing my legs in summer, knowing they’ll look naturally golden and glowing, thanks to St Moriz.
