Today I am reviewing St Moriz self tanning mousse which I got sent from Direct Cosmetics. The product is quite cheap in most places so definitely starts off on the right foot and has very similar
features to the more expensive St Tropez. When you press the nozzle the
liquid that comes out is pretty foamy and brown in colour and all you
do is rub that into your skin. It’s suitable for all over the body but I tend to not use it on my face just in case…
Now its best to exfoliate first to get rid of dry skin as self tan can get caught on this and create a very attractive
streaky look. I have used spray tanners before and found I instantly
got these horrible streak marks but with St Moriz mousse if you rub it
in well enough you can hopefully avoid those.
The product is light but straight after use it does leave you with a
slight stickiness that isn’t too comfortable. Unlike most tanners though
it doesn’t have that horrible biscuity smell and you can go about your
daily basis comfortable that you won’t be attracting a flock of piegeons.
However, even with the best of intentions you do still get streak marks
with St Moriz mousse, especially in areas such as back of legs,
inbetween fingers etc which you don’t notice till you get into a well
lit area. My advice – wait till you get into natural light before
applying, you’ll get far better results that way!
I’d give it a 4/5.
- Simple to use
- Cheap and available from a lot of specialised beauty shops/online shops
- Good contester to St Tropez without the price tag
- Gives off a deep bronzed glow
- Slightly sticky after use
- Streaks do occur!
