My New Found Love...

Evening lovelies :)

Soo I thought I'd try out a new fake tan the other night that I'd heard lots of other bloggers give great reviews about.. I loved before I was a student being able to afford St.Tropez every now and again, but due to low funds I haven't been able to afford that since finishing the bottle off a year ago!! 

I'm a complete sun worshipper whenever I go on holiday, no one can understand why or how I just lie in the sun for as long as I do but it totally relaxes me, and I love having a great tan at the end of it! It just makes me feel so much healthier - I did start going on the stand up sun beds a couple of times but then thought I was being stupid with all the cancer risks they have, and it just made me go very red anyway so I've stopped!! And now I've opted for the cheap cheats version...

St Moriz!

 For £2.99 from places such as Home Bargains and Bodycare it is in fact a complete bargain!! I opted for the mousse as sometimes I find spray tans can go everywhere, but with how well this went I might attempt the spray one day! There is also a dark version now out, but I thought I should play safe for my first attempt.

I decided to apply this in the evening so it had plenty of time to soak in and wash it off in the morning. I was quite surprised how glowing it made me look straight away and didn't smell! Although, don't be alarmed when the mousse comes out as it is alarmingly dark!! - I should have used tanning mitts too, as it took a while for the brown / orange to come off my hands haha!

I re-applied this the evening after to get a bit of a darker tan for when I went out, as you can see in the photos below (sorry there's not a full length photo!)

This photo makes me look kind of orange!
I can safely say this is one of the best fake tans I have ever used..and will definitely be using again! No streaks, no bad smell, great colour, and amazing price!! 10/10!
