St. Moriz Fast Tanning Mousse, $9.99

To say I was excited to try this is an understatement. I have been on the hunt for a good self tanner for YEARS. Since skin cancer is so prevalent in our family I’ve worked hard to prevent sun damage to my skin… I wear an SPF daily and take special precautions when I’m in the sun for prolonged periods of time. I’m blonde and fair skinned… you’d think I would burn, but I don’t really… which can be even more dangerous. So long story short… I stick to a tan in a tube! TAN… not ORANGE!! Right?!

St. Moriz Fast Tanning Mousse!!!!! 

After extensive research of current products on the market, I decided that this one not only fit into my budget but reviews also boasted a rich glow! A few reviews did mention streaking or uneven spread, but I read recommendations on the St. Moriz website suggesting a mitt for application… just wait…

Application Mitt, $6.69

I’ve decided tonight that I have applied EVERY self tanner the wrong way. This mitt was a #gamechanger. If you think about it… most come in a lotion or a mousse and it’s just impossible to get it evenly distributed while you’re also stressing that your fingers are going to look like carrots. For under $7 bucks it is a SCORE… it’s washable so you can reuse and really delivered the even, streak free tan I was looking for. So without even knowing what hue this mousse was going to develop into… I was celebrating the application! Get this adorable and affordable mitt HERE on Amazon, cheaper than at Ulta!

Now let’s dive into the tan application!

 

  1. Always exfoliate before you apply any self-tanner, get a spray tan or anything… this ensures the best possible application and will even help it last longer!
  2. Moisturize and let it dry… completely!
  3. Read and RE-READ directions before applying and snap a before shot!
  4. Using the mitt, I used two-three pumps at a time and blended it completely before heading to a new spot. I applied sparingly to areas like the tops of my hands, feet, joints and my face.
  5. I let it completely dry before getting dressed again and made sure to note the time so you can track it. This formula is meant to darken gradually over 3 hours… meaning you can leave it on for the full 3 hours if you desire a darker glow or rinse earlier for a medium tan.
  6. After it’s ‘cooked’ for the desired time you’ll need to rinse off with lukewarm water. I just hopped in the shower and skipped the soaps or body wash.
  7. You’re all set!

A few things I noticed:

This self tanner didn’t smell horrible as some do… total plus! Wasn’t sticky or slimy…

Doesn’t rub off! I was worried that since the foam was dark that it would rub off on my clothes and anything else I touched during the 3 hours…. it didn’t. The foam is a chocolate brown and you can immediately see color when applying. Came in handy!

Overall I definitely recommend St. Moriz Fast Tanning Mousse… don’t skip the mitt! Easy application, great color, quality product and wonderfully priced!

Let me know if you try it!!! Time to get #summerready!!

    I would love to have some color on this glue in the dark white body! Does this product contain aloe Vera? I’m allergic to it! Thanks Kate!

    I’ve been tube tanning for over 10 years! I’m trying the fast tanning mousse for the first time tonight and loving the results. The color is really natural. I’m going for the full 3 hours 🙂
    Just wanted to share another game changing application tip- disposable nitrile gloves. Same method if application but the gloves don’t absorb any product at all- like a brush or mitt.
