St Moritz Shade control Tan!

I discovered St Moritz while at Uni & It quickly became a favorite of me and my friends for its dark colour…So when I discovered a new variety I jumped to try it!… Ive tried the original Lotion and the mousse ( dark! – obviously!) …and the mousse was a clear winner so I’m glad the new Shade control version is also in this texture!

I found the colour to be a lot more red ( in a good way ) a bit more of a ‘dirty’ tan color….again…not in a bad way but in a ‘ i don’t look bright orange but more like I’ve been on a beach’ kind of way!…I know the base colours changed as when I shower it off the colour that rinses off is a dark browny red,different to the origional version!…

I probably havn’t done the best job in describing the colour so the pictures might do¬† better job! – Ive now firmly upgraded to the new offering as I much prefer it!….Annnnnd If I only have a few hours notice I can still be tanned ( 1 hour light, 2 hours med, 3 hours dark) development time! – The fase out on it is a lot better also, It only really goes patchy after a week and even then only on the inside of my arms infront of the elbow so not a massive deal at all!

When applying it I actually find a get a much longer lasting, deeper colour if I apply the following steps;

1. exfoliate to high heaven….I like to use exfoliating gloves, I find this is a sure fire way to make my skin smooth and soft ready for my tan! If I skip this step I almost always regret it as it doesnt fade as well and as my skins dry I can end up with dirty looking patches ( and this time I do mean dirty in the bad way!)

2. Apply moisturiser to the ankles, inbetween fingers and toes, inside of the arm, & if applying to face nose and chin as this stops it from going on your pores.

3. I like to apply it with a plastic glove ( like the type from hair dye packets!) This way I get a MUCH deeper color than using a mitt and the product goes much further.

4. I then take some product on a mitt and buff the product on areas that may appear patchier or tricky areas!

Leave on and shower off when you get the shade you want! – Every day moisturize to keep the color and fade out as good as it possibly can be!
