Faking it

In the past few years I have become a slight fake tan addict! I used hundreds of different kinds and many of them didn't feel appeal to me when I saw them on. I tried the wipes, lotions, sprays and mousses! After a while I gave up until a friend recommended St.Moriz so I thought ok I'll give it ago and I haven't looked back since. Its easy to apply, doesn't go streaky & another thing it's really cheap (about £4). Triple BONUS!

Anyway, you apply it about 8hours before you have a shower, I usually put it on an hour before going to bed and just get up in the morning and wash it off & no it doesn't run onto the bed sheets - well so long as you aren't major sweating in your sleep lol! I use the dark one and if I'm going out I'll apply it say a few nights before and then again the night before I go out just to give myself a real nice tan. I use the light one as well but I don't think it looks much different I am really pale so you'd think the dark would be to much but really it isn't :). woohoo, also it does not look orange! It is 100% tango-proof! If you still aren't feeling as dark as you like I do apply the light one before I go out, just don't pile it on or your going to look a little messy!

Along with the mousses they also do an "instant" spray tan (there all instant I just think the mousses are better washed off) I do own the spray one to I thought I'd try it as sometimes I don't have time to tan in the week and I kinda like to have a "back up tan" haha. It is really good, I use a tanning mit to apply it as I would the mousse, just this one is a little messy, avoid white carpets!! I might have brought a faulty spray lid because every time I shook the bottle it went all over my carpet - only small blotches but who wants tan marks on their carpet :( not me. 

Along with the St.Moriz tan I do have another personal favourite, Rimmel. I use the lotion one, this is also great if I'm going out short notice and need a quick colour boost! Sometimes I even apply it on top of my St.Moriz tan around my chest and neckline because my pale skin my tan doesn't always develop fully on my neck so just something extra helps. 

So what do you all think of St.Moriz, going to give it ago? I'd definitely recommend it to you if you want to try it. Remember them triple bonus's! 

What tan's do you use, any recommendations I could try? 

P.s. Has anyone tried Lauren's way tan from "the only way is essex", I've been debating it but I'm not sure?
