So at last it looks like we’re shrugging off Winter and Spring has finally decided to join us – and that normally brings on that crazy urge to rifle through your wardrobe and cupboards to bring out all those lovely Summer clothes (and see if they still fit after a Winter of eating cakes, chocolate, stews and between mouthfuls saying “You want to eat more in Winter don’t you? But you need the fat to keep you warm :)”
But this lovely time of year also means that for the first time in months my legs, that have hibernated in thick trousers over the winter, make their first appearance. Now unless you are blessed with beautiful dark skin, you may well be like me and about to perform the annual fake tan application process to give your legs that initial wash of colour until the sun starts to work her magic.
I’ve been doing this Spring ritual for more years than I care to remember and have used lots of different makes, always at the higher price range because I’ve been so worried that I’ll end up with bright orange legs with dark patches around my knees and heels, but I watched a programme recently where they go in to someone’s house and substitute expensive products for cheaper brands and on this particular episode they substituted an expensive fake tan product with a much cheaper one ……. St Moriz.
Intrigued to see if it really is as good as the more expensive brands, I went and bought some ….. and it’s brilliant!
The St Moriz mousse comes out as a pleasant smelling brown mousse which is great as it means that not only can you see exactly where you’ve applied it, your legs are also left with some colour while the mousse starts working. Leave it on for a few hours and then bathe.
I was left with a lovely, even colour on my legs that lasted quite a few days.
I used a tanning mit for the first time and it did appear to make the whole application better – the application was more even over my legs and it prevents any chance of your hands getting stained.
I bought my St Moriz Tanning Mousse from a cheaper end store for £2.99 (I also bought the sponge application mit from the same store for a £1) but you can also buy St Moriz products at Wilko and Boots.
So I will definitely be using St Moriz in the future whenever I need a colour top up. Great colour, easy to apply and a great price!
