This comes out as runny liquid and dries so fast you cannot blend it in so you look like you have dirt on your face. i bought two bottles due to good reviews and cannot even get ahold of the company as they seem to have no contact info. It is unwearable unless you want ot look like you haven't had abth in weeks. It just looks dirty all over. You are better off with anything else.

This review is for the instant self-tan lotion:
I have been using self-tanner weekly for about 10 years, so I have tried a lot of products. When I bought this I had been using Faux Tan with the buffing brush and was very happy with it.
But when I saw this at the reject shop for $6 AUD I thought I'd try it. I had been looking for this in Australia for ages, but with shipping costs it just wasn't cheap anymore.
I didn't have high hopes for this product but it really is amazing. I prefer it to St Tropez, Faux Tan and Modelco. It is really easy to apply, has a good colour tracer that looks even and wearable outside (unlike Faux Tan) and dries so quickly. The best thing about this product is that when its on, you don't get that sticky/tacky feeling on the skin. Its so light that you could wear it all day without noticing.
The colour is much darker than Faux Tan but its really natural looking and not orange at all. I put a few coats on and was surprised at how dark it was- I would use it sparingly. I applied it with the buffer brush and the application was fairly even. I think this is harder to use than Faux Tan, it seems to streak slightly more but would be fine if you were careful with the application.
My only criticism is that the next day it was slightly splotchy and lighter in certain places, and doesn't seem to last or wear as well as Faux Tan. Still for a tenth of the price of Faux Tan and virtually the same end colour, and much less sticky on the skin- can't go wrong! Also the smell is virtually non-existent. I didn't get that fake tan smell at all! Couldn't be happier with this product, just hope the Reject Shop keep stocking it!

As a pale red head, I have used hundreds of self tanners. I have also become quite the pro applying self tanner and knowing immediately whether the product is good or bad. I purchased this product on Amazon and because of the good reviews I read online, I purchased 2 in the dark self tanner foam to save on shipping. First of all, you can't beat the price and I only paid 5 dollars for shipping. The negative is that I had to wait 2-3 weeks to receive the product in the US since it was coming from the UK.
-Drys Very Quickly; no sticky feeling after
-Great Dark Color
-Easy to apply as you can see the color as you are applying it which allows you to see any streaks and blend where needed
-Will stain hands BAD(you absolutely have to wear gloves)
-Difficult to apply on hands because the product DRYS very very quickly.
-About half of the dark color comes off once you shower (I waited 14 hours to shower after I applied)
Overall, I would purchase this product again, but I will use a DIFFERENT self tanner for my hands. The only BIG negative I can say is that the product does not stay on very long.

This is just as good as St Tropez in my opinion and is about a tenth of the price! I bought this for £2.75. It is easy to apply and gives my skin a lovely light golden tan. I will buy this from now on instead of St Tropez to save my pennies.

I use both the St Moriz moouse/foam and the lotion.
The lotion is much better and easier to use, however I will firstly review the moouse.
Ive only ever used the regular/medium, not brave enough to go for the dark! This does come out dark but fear not, once on its not that dark at all and is a noce natural colour and not at all orange.
This also does not have the horrible fake tan biscuit smell you can get sometimes wiyh other brands.
This can be very drying on the skin, due to it being a moouse and not a moisturising lotion. Also, it dries quickly. This is both a good and not so good thing. Good because it means less chance of it rubbing off once you've applied it and are allowing it to develop. Not so good as it can make it tricky to blend of you apply it slowly.
My tip would be to apply a good few pumps to a mitt (ALWAYS use a mitt, palms of hands will always go dark orange if fake tan goes on to them!) and do one area, such as one whole arm all in one go, rather than apply a little and having to keep stop/starting.
While the tan develops you're not a ridiculous colour, St Moriz looks nice both whole developing and once washed off.
The colour itself is fantastic for such a cheap tan (£2.99 when I buy it) and is as good as, if not better, than higher end tans like fake name and st tropez.
It contains more green undertones, like fake bake does, than orange which is what makes it not look cheap.
Although the moouse gives a fantastic colour for such a bargain of a price, if you can get the lotion, do!
It's a lot more moisturising and goes on smoother.
The moouse has a pump dispenser which can be a bit fiddly when you're trying not to get tan on one hand and have the mitt on the other, whereas the lotion just squeezes out of a small line so you don't have to touch the top at all, much easier.
The colour however is exactly the same with both formulas.
I love St Moriz and would recommend it over any of the more expensive brands out there.

I do swear by this product (dark mousse) but it is VERY drying after afew uses..i have dry skin anyway i exfoliate and moisturise to the max everytime i bath or shower but as my skin is very fair and pale nothing tans me so i find myself having to tan after every shower this does have a great colour at first but washes off me so much that i look as though ive got no tan on at all. Ive tried fake bake and other high end tans and non give as good of a colour as this. But it is extremely drying to the skin. I find myself having to stick to this though because of the fact i have to tan after every bath or shower i could never affors to buy a fake bake tan or other high end tan every week! Also i found after applying this it does stay very sticky for a long time after..i applied it last night and was very dark got up this morning to wash it off and it seems to have rubbed off im back to looking pale again before i have even showered!

*This review is for the medium color, will update when I try the dark color.
I'm gonna keep this simple + short...
*dries fast, which is also sort of a con, make sure to moisturize beforehand
*not a horrible scent
*good color payoff, fake bake mousse washed right off
*cheap price for the tanner itself, I think I paid 4.99$
*if you don't moisturize before its hard to blend
*shipping from UK is expensive and slow
*if I don't wash my face/moisturize before it can settle into my pores and look dirty
**will DEFINITELY stain palms, wear gloves!!

This is a review of the DARK mousse
-bright colour guard
-leaves a nice dark colour after washing off the colour guard
-sits horribly on pores , especially on your face
-the colour is patchy from day 1
-fades too quickly, 2 days after application all the tan is gone
-dries out skin
-can get streaky because it dries really fast
I bought this because of all the good reviews I found online combined with the cheap pricetag, but I was disappointed and I would not buy it again.
First off I highly advise you against application on your face: it is too drying; it makes you look like you put mud on your face when you have the colour guard on (believe me,although temporary, this is very depressing) and when you wash it off it leaves your pores (especially on the nose) horribly dark like you've never had a facial in your whole life ( and I don't have oily skin, and my pores had never looked so blatant in my whole life).
It is very patchy on the rest on the body too, as if the mousse had not sank properly all over. This is clearly the product's fault because I scrubbed vigorously before applying and did not moisturize(because they say that moisturizing before application of self tan does not allow the product to sink in properly) and nevertheless the result was not good.
I ended up mixing it with a cheap moisturizing lotion (1/4 of this mousse and 3/4 of lotion) not to dump it directly to the trashcan. I now use this mix sparingly in between proper tanning lotions of other brands, but I look forward to finish this a.s.a.p.
I usually use Xen Tan Deep Bronze Luxe Lotion and this is an awesome product to which I will stick. I've never had any issue with it.
I would not recommend St. Moriz mousse.

This tanner has its good and bad points but overall it is one of my favourites (I also Love Model Co spray tan in a can which is equally as amazing if not bette - just harder to apply) and I have re purchased it quite a few times just because I haven't been able to find one with a colour as natural and brown (not orange) as this one.
*Really nice brown colour not orange
*Can see what your applying as its an instant tan
*Tends to go dry and flakey on the skin within a day
*Need to really scrub your skin first otherwise it sticks to dry patches and looks flakey and dry
*Need to reapply it the next day otherwise it looks faded and slightly orange
*Gets all over your sheets :(
I always use a Mitt to get it looking even and to avoid orange hands. This stuff dries very very quickly ! =)
But I still like it for the brown colour it gives my white skin, so I will keep repurchasing :)
