Isn't this stuff supposed to be just like St Tropez or am I thinking of something else.

Yes, from an ex avid st tropez user, I can assure you that this is IDENTICAL to it!!! I am so so so happy, I was spending a small fortune on st tropez, and st moriz is 5e and absolutely brilliant!

St. Moritz is brilliant. I tried loads of fake tans and this is the one that I can put on without going borange!!! Very pleased with it. I wore it to a black tie event and my best friend asked me where I got my tan done!

I would moisturize before putting it on though, it dries ridiculously fast! I would leave it on for at least 8-12 hours for a nice color to come up! I put it on for two consecutive days and I had a lovely tan!

SAlly Hansen for instant or St. Moriz if you've time.

And no offence, but she wasn't asking anyone for their opinions on whether or not fake tan looks good, she's looking for a recommondation from people who do use it. Air your opinons inchatwalk if you must.

I think it depends on your own skin tone and type. I use st. tropez lotion all the time (diluted with the st. trop body lotion in winter) and it never looks orange - I get asked where I've been on holidays during the summer! I don't like the gradual version though, I find it goes patchy and too orange on my skin after a few applications. I've tried all the other "good" tans including Lancome Flash Bronzer, L'oreal etc and none of them come up a natural colour on my skin.

I've been using WOW Brown (Which is Irish as well) and find it really good. Not orange at all. I have quite pale skin as well.

Sally Hanson for me does a great job I usually buy the lightest one as I am so pale, my sister got a tan from pennys and it looked gorgeous on her and it was dirt cheap.

Love the sally light tan too for a light but warm healthy glow.
St. Moriz is amazing, everyone should try it cause it's dirt cheap, even in over priced pharmacies it's still only a fiver. But would again recommend making sure your very moisturised so it goes on smooth.

My only complaint about St Moriz is that it starts to fade very fast - the colour is super natural though

I like Liquid Gold and SunFX, I'm using both ATM. I used to use St Tropez but my local chemist stopped stocking it.

Thanks everyone.

How many shades does St.Moritz come in? I saw it in my local Penneys on day, but I was on my way to the checkout as they were closing so I hadn't a chance to look at it properly.

From what I saw, it looked kinda dark coloured, but it could've been the lighting in the store though.

Is the St.Moritz ok for sensitive, dry-flaky skin?

Thanks.

Whatever you do, do not put fake tan on dry-flakey skin!!!!

Make sure to exfoliate and moisturise well before using any type of fake tan otherwise it will look awful!!!

The flaky skin is partly why I've never worn fake tan (apart from Dove Summer glow the odd time). It's not very flaky and seems to be getting better.

I use the Aveeno cream with cooling menthol which seems to help and I exfoliate every two days and lash the moisturiser on.

I'd obviously try it at home first a few times and see how it looked before venturing out lol.

Thanks for your suggestions/help, I appreciate it.

As far as I know it only comes in one shade? I could be wrong though.
I'm really really pale and I find it fine, looks really natural.
I'm the same as you re dry skin and I just make sure to moisturise about 10 minutes before I apply the tan. I use the Dove Supreme Body Silk that comes in the white tub, and the tan goes on perfect.

When you first put it on it looks so dirty and like sh*t but don't be worried, it turns out fine!

I started using it over the summer, when I saw how cheap it was and I had so many people recommending it to me and tbh I would be reluctant to change back to my previous tans (still have sally hansen on standby for last minute jobs though!)

It's definitely worth a shot for €4
