I have tried a LOT of fake tans. This one I came across when a girl who used to work for me came in to work with a really nice tan. I asked her what it was and she told me to go over to Bodycare (a discount beauty shop) as it is really cheap.
So I went over and picked up a spray can in 'dark' for £2.99. The range includes mousse and lotion and comes in light, medium and dark shades.
The instructions advised me to hold the can at least 30cm away and spray onto the skin, then leave to dry before getting dressed. I would advise to exfoliate and moisturise before using, put a towel down on the floor before spraying otherwise you will ruin your carpets, and to use a tanning mitt.
The tan sprayed quite darkly onto my skin, once I have sprayed one leg I like to rub the tan in slightly with a tanning mitt, to make sure the colour is even. Then start on the other leg, then the rest of my body. When spraying my face I put a shower cap over my hair then spray and rub in again. Always wash your hands afterwards as the colour will be noticable and there is nothing more tell tale than patchy orange hands!
The smell of the tan whilst spraying is quite strong so I would open a window when using. There is a slight 'fake tan' smell when the colour has developed but nothing too strong or unpleasant.
The colour is noticable and you can tell straight away that you have tan on. I'd advise to wait a good 5 minutes before dressing, and not to wear your best clothes as the product does slightly rub off. This does wash off though. The colour takes at least 4 hours to develop fully, but the longer you leave it the darker the colour. I usually use it on a night then wash off in the morning. Once washed off it leaves a nice dark, nautral looking tan.
I use this once a week, and will still have a tan at the end of the week. The product fades like a natural tan and you don't really get any of the 'scaly' parts you can do with other tans. If I want a really deep tan I will use it over two consecutive days.
I really love this product and the price makes it an absolute bargain. Although I purchase mine from Bodycare I think it is now available in Superdrug also.
I don't know about you, but I love having an all year round tan, it just makes me feel better in myself. I have never been one for sunbeds and when I go away find it way too hot to sit in the sun an get one.
I started using fake tan when I was around 15 and began to take pride in my appearance, since then I've never looked back!
I've used lots of fake tans over the years ranging from £1 - £45, you name it I've tried it.
Recently I was shopping and came across the St. Moritz Instant Tanning Mist. I've only ever seen the mousse (which I find hard to use as I usually wake up looking like a tiger) Being hard to resist I bought it for £2.99. I thought it was cheap but didn't hold any hope for it.
That night I thought I would give it ago. I gave the can a good shake and started on my left arm, when it came out it wasn't quite what I expected. It came out spotty and no the flawless tan I thought. Thankfully I was wearing a tanning glove and lightly rubbed it in to my skin making sure I didn't miss any.
The actual tan was a perfect colour, instead or the orange tinge you get with most tans this had more of a golden look to it.
Once I got the hang of it I continued to my right arm, chest, legs and feet, I also rubbed it in to the back of my neck to give it a natural look if I wore my hair up.
Unlike other fake tans it didn't have that nasty tan smell that usually lingers until it fades. It smells yummy.
I was also very impressed with how quick it took to dry, normally I am standing in my bathroom flapping around for ages and then I still feel tacky but with St. Moritz Instant Tanning Mist, I found myself dry with 5 minutes and able to get dressed.
I also found it easy to apply as it goes on the skin a brown colour and easier to see where you have put it unlike other tans that you apply colourless and can't see where you have missed.
I really struggle when applying fake tans on the awkward areas such as, knees, elbows and ankles but with St. Moritz Instant Tanning Mist, I didn't have this problem. Once it had fully dried I took a damp flannel and lightly rubbed these key areas that are a tell-tale sign to a bad looking tan.
The next day I fully expected for my tan to have to have rubbed on to my sheets but to my surprise there was nothing and my tan was still perfect.
All in all I love this product, I found it great value for money, easy to apply and dry and a perfect colour. I've had several compliments about it and have also recommended St. Moritz Instant Tanning Mist to my best friend who has also falling in love with it.
I highly recommend this product to anyone who likes a tan like me.
I bought this from home bargains to test it out after being very pleased with the mousse, however I was pretty disappointed and ended up with a really blotchy tan.
The bottle has a very similar design to the mousse, contains the same amount of tan (4 full body) but has a spray on the top. The lids were already leaking on all of them when I bought it and leaked some more in my bag which wasn't great.
The bottle says to just hold and spray from a few inches. Doing this resulted in a weird brown liquid dripping everywhere, I tried to leave it alone but I resisted and rubbed it in, Like the mousse you can already see where you have tanned but the spray was too difficult for me to get accurate. It also got all over my bathroom and hands whilst the bottle continued to leak whilst it was spraying at me. I found it extremely difficult to do my face with it. The spray was also really smelly (like a plastic smell) and the smell was very strong.
The results were awful. My skin was sticky and there was a LOT of streaks everywhere. The tan was really uneven and in some places you could see where I had sprayed myself. The smell was also still there and the tan was nowhere near the same colour as the mousse. It didn't last any more than a few hours before I had to wash it off.
In My opinion, your better off buying the mousse and steering well clear of this.
Having used St Moriz in the Mousse form and being very pleased with the product (please see my review of the mousse), I decided to give the ST Moriz spray/mist a ago. I have used many self tanning products and sprays tend to be better for those harder to reach places. Whilst the mousse is great there is one area of my back that I just can't reach, my arms just aren't long or bendy enough to, so I thought this would be ideal.
This product cost the same as the Mousse £2.99 from home bargains but whilst you get 200ml of ST Moriz Mousse, you get 150ml of ST Moriz Self Tanning Mist. I Selected Natural to Medium as I'm very fair and the product claims to be a super fine spray and streak free, I felt this sounded great I thought I was buying another great product by St Moriz and Couldn't wait to try it, how wrong could I be.
Before applying this product I give the can a bit of shake, I always do this before using most products of this kind and it's also often recommended. As I proceeded to shake the can bits of the self tanner started to leak out from underneath the nozzle and which caught my surroundings, which I wasn't pleased about. So at this point I thought to read the directions which I normally do before hand but didn't on this occasion as i didn't think I needed to as I have used so many self tanner and application directions are almost always the same. The directions say nothing about shaking the can before use, so this may have been my error and maybe I should have left the top on to shake but the directions state that the mist can be used upside down, which I would say is just as bad, but I I didn't attempt placing the can upside down after this leakage. Anyways I started to spray the mist onto my body and as soon as the product had contact with my body it began to run, alot. The spray/mist during the application continued to leak from underneath the spray nozzle and ran all down the can and onto my hands. As this was mist spray I didn't think to put on gloves at this stage I intended on putting them on after I finished spraying to rub in any residue. This was a big mistake anyone who uses fake tanners knows how horrid palms look with fake tan, they always go orange and take for ever to fade away and thats exactly what I got - Orange palms not a good look. This was truly a horrible self tanning experience I didn't feel like I could stop mid application so I continued in my horror not be be left half tanned and half pale. As this product was just very wet and runny Iit was much harder to blend than the mousse the application process was long and it took longer than the mousse to dry.
As for the colour just like the mousse it was instant so I could see were I had or hadn't applied, which is always good and the actual colour was basically the same as the mouse good not excellent. It also smelt the same as the mousse and like the mouse it was streak free.
Conclusively whilst this product is similar to the mousse - same price, same colour, same smell, streak free the application of the mist is far more difficult, messy and not user friendly. If your thinking to try this product protect your surroundings, very messy and always use gloves from first contact with can. Whilst I would definitely recommend the mousse I would definitely not recommend St Moriz Mist not because of the result the result was fine just as good as the mousse but purely because the application processes, St Moriz need to work on the nozzle. This was the worse experience I have had with a self tanner.
Its cheap but works very well, they do mousse in it too. I bought for £3.99, this one, the spray is easy because it gets to the back of your legs and backs of your arms easy enough and if you read the back of the bottle correctly it does say 6-10 inches away so if you do as the bottle says it develops an even tan (not too fake either) which is what most people look for in a tan, right? Its more a golden browny than 'orangey'. If you spray too close it leaves wet dots that you would have to rub in (if you have a tan mitt thats fine) BUT if you don't its not very good because you get orangey hands and even though its instant tan that you can wash off it doesnt come off the palms of your hands very well, but most people would buy the spray so you didnt have to use your hands. The bottle should last you a while if your not a total tan-a-holic, Follow the instructions on the bottle & you should be fine. :-)
I've done a review on the st moriz tanning mouse and loved it. But, i thought i'd try the st moriz mist. I was happy with the price and the packaging but couldn't find many reviews on it but i thought i'd try it anyway.
The tanning mist has the same packaging as the mouse and is also the same price i bought this from home bargains but you can purchase it online as well. The instructions are very accurate and help a great deal and they are on the back of the bottle.
You apply it the same way you would the mouse with a tanning mit it's instant but does become darker within 2-3 hours so it's best to apply it before bed then shower in the morning.
Well, i wasn't happy with it the spray top started to leak it went all over my carpet and my legs, the tan itself came out very dark and it took alot of spray just to cover one leg i was so unhappy with it that i jumped in the bath straight away and washed it off luckily, i still had some mouse left to apply some tan because i was going out the next night. But, on the flip side my sister then used it and it worked much better on her she has olive skin so i thought it works best rarther than on pale skin.
My verdict: I will not be buying this ever again, the mouse is your best bet if your in a rush! I give this rating of 1/10!
