It’s that time of the year again, and by that time I mean the time when your limbs come out and you only look healthy if you’re boasting a golden glow. Or maybe that’s just me? I’m not fortunate enough to be going on holiday this year (poor me, I know) so I’m relying even more heavily on fake tan than usual.
Recently, I’ve discovered two new products that I have added to my routine and I had to share them with you all!
I struggled to find a fake tan that worked on my face without:
(a) clinging to particular areas; or
(b) breaking my skin out.
Nothing seemed to do it and most tans that I used on my face clung to my nose area making me look like I’d burnt it. Not a good look.
This serum from the Advanced Pro St Moriz line is a saviour! Simply add between three and six drops to your regular moisturiser and your skin will develop a golden tan within a few hours. I tend to find that this works best when applied at night, mixed in with my night cream. It doesn’t clog my pores, doesn’t cling in an unsightly matter and gives a super natural golden glow.
I particularly like that the serum can be built up with ease to develop the required colour intensity.
The serum doesn’t alter the consistency of your moisturiser but I would caution to ensure it is well mixed in with the moisturiser before applying to avoid any potential streaks.
The next product that I have recently discovered is for the end of the tanning process, the removal. I don’t know about you but I hate that horrible period where your lovely tan has worn off but there are a few areas left behind where it hasn’t worn off just as much, leaving a patchy look. I find my underarms and feet to be my issue on this front.
The St Moriz Tan Remover is your best friend in this instance! Simply apply a layer of the mousse to the areas you want to remove the tan from , leave for at least 5 minutes (I aim for 30 minutes) and wash off with a warm flannel and you’re good to go. The remover is gentle and effective at removing tan remnants which eliminates the need for harsh scrubbing on the skin. That being said, I personally combine this step with my trusty exfoliation gloves in the shower and have found that the remainder of last week’s tan comes off with ease.
The formulation is a moisture rich foam to ensure the skin is not stripped or dehydrated, leaving a perfect base for your next tan application!
Both products have an RRP of £9.99 but they are often found for less than that on Feel Unique or at Superdrug and Boots.
