#FakeTanThursdays | Another Quick Vacay to St Moriz*


Life's better with a tan. Fact. And as I'm wayyyyyy too poor to even contemplate leaving the UK to seek a bitta winter sun, said tan has to come out of a bottle. And be within budget. Oh, adulting. Luckily, my baes at St Moriz keep consistently beasting out new products as part of their Advanced Pro Formula collection; that meet my strict criteria perfectly. 

I've used this brand since 2010 and my loyalty to them has both remained and grown ever stronger over the past seven years - as St Moriz continues to develop [almost as quickly as their tan does!] and branch out with new ranges. All their products retail at extremely reasonable prices too. Which yous all know, I'm aaaaaaaaall about

So with this in mind, I'd like to dedicate this week's #FakeTanThursday feature to their new Velvet Finish Tanning Gel* in Medium - another welcome addition to the Advanced Pro Formula family and to my fake tan stash. This fleeky fake tan promises to keep your skin hydrated in the cold weather with its moisture rich formula and is available from Superdrug, for just £8.99.

Although I've worked my way through literally hundreds of bottle of St Moriz - and I've tried countless different brands of mousse, sprays, mists, lotions, creams & dry oils - I've not had much experience with tanning gels before; but as expected from the moment this sexy tube arrived on my doorstep, I love it. 

Have you ever tried St Moriz's Dry Oil Fake Tan? I reviewed it here, if you have no idea what I'm chattin' about here, like [hashtag shameless plug.] I guess my point here is that - in a sense -  this gel reminds me of it. They're totes different consistencies; but they both apply clear & dry dead quickly, so you can get dressed and carry on with your day post tanning sesh - leaving your tan to develop as your day does. And both of these St Moriz products leave your skin feeling moisturised, smooth, beautifully fragranced and not-sticky too - which is a rarity with fake tan!

St Moriz's Velvet Finish Tanning Gel glides seamlessly over the skin; meaning that it's dead easy to blend and there's no mad streaks, disasters or patchy bits gonna rear their ugly heads the next day; to betray your confidence or show you up. You can even mix it with your favourite moisturiser for a super natural looking glow if ya want... which will bronze right up as the day progresses and fool people into thinking you permo have a natural sun-kissed summary glow about you. Even though it's actually grim, gloomy Autumn / Winter and the sun has now abandoned us until future notice.

Suitable for profesh or newbie tanners, you can't really go wrong with this little beaut. St Moriz's Advanced Pro Formula is great quality, natural looking once its developed [no David Dickinson / Trump situations here, dolls!] and smells gorgeous; none of the old school biscuits-from-hell fragrance that I'm sure every twenty-something-year-old remembers vividly, from her days of teenage angst and fighting off eternal paleness.

Let's just all take a quick vacay to St Moriz and pretend that Autumn / Winter isn't happening, k?
