Good evening girlies!
I've just arrived back at my house in Sheffield to an exciting little parcel from Amazon containing a bottle of St. Moriz instant self tanning mousse...I know for most beauty bloggers this wouldn't be that exciting but it's a pretty big deal for me as it means I'll be losing my fake tan virginity this week haha! I don't know why it's taken me so long to get on the fake tan bandwagon, I think I was just a bit scared of looking streaky or tangoed so stuck to safer gradual tanning with my Garnier Summerbody moisturiser, which you can read my full review of here-review-garnier-summerbody However, I've now decided this gradual tanner isn't enough any more as I've been getting too jealous of girls with gorgeous tans and hating how pale I look in photos, which is why I think it's time I bit the bullet and got my glow on. I did a lot of research into what fake tan to buy and the St. Moriz instant self tanning mousse seemed to come out as the best option for both quality and price as it was only £4.15 from Amazon and is supposed to be as good as the St.Tropez tanning mousse which would have set me back a pricey £22.50!
I got it in shade medium as I'm not brave enough to go any darker just yet, but I'm sure I'll try the darker shade out once I've got the knack of applying it. I also know that preparation is key to a streak free successful tan so I've got all the products together that I'll be using for preparation, application and after care...
I'll be exfoliating my face and body before hand to help ensure an even tan using Soap and Glory flake away and Simple face wash applied with my boots exfoliating gloves, I'll then be applying the St. Moriz tanning mousse with an ultras tanning mit whilst wearing gloves underneath to protect my hands from staining and also be using one of my favourite products of all time, the righteous butter from Soap and Glory, to moisturise everywhere (but particularly feet and knees) before and after tanning.
So that's the plan I'll be carrying out at some point this week, wish me luck and I'll do a post as soon as to show you the results!
Are you a fake tan fan? Which one do you prefer to use? Do you have any tips that might help me to achieve the perfect tan this week?
Tonight I need to un pack and get all my uni stuff ready for my 10 'o' clock start tomorrow morning, but I'll also be watching tonights TOWIE so its not all bad!
I hope you've all had a wonderful weekend!
