I don't understand the people who are complaining about this product washing off. I'm not sure the understand the concept of this fake tanner.
St Moriz is best applied with a mitt before bed. Pump some foam straight onto your mitt and apply directly to the skin. To do my hands, face and feet, I just use the residue left on the mitt when I have finished doing my body, preventing them looking too dark.
This product goes on DARK. VERY dark, and will make your skin look quite greasy if you use it on your face, so i wouldn't want to apply it through the day and go to work in it! But worry not, if you go to bed in it, sleep, and shower in the morning, you will be left with a beautiful golden tan underneath.
This is great applied the evening before a night out, but as other users have said it does wear off pretty quickly and goes patchy after 1 or 2 showers, so it is important to exfoliate every other day when wearing this. I scrub my body with exfoliating gloves to prevent the colour "gathering" in areas.
Because the tan goes on coloured, you can see if you have missed any areas, and believe me, if you do miss somewhere on accident, that area will be noticibly whiter the next day!
Pros of this product:
Cheap as chips
Readily available from the supermarket
Leaves an even, golden tan
Can be used on the face
Comes in different shades (i am fair and still use medium or dark)
You can see where you have applied it
Will stain your pyjamas/bed sheets
Looks "wet" and shiney when first applied
Can make the skin feel tacky for a while after application
Wears off patchy and quickly

I would love to review this product as its one of the best self tanners I have ever used. Im trying to understand what other women are saying about it coming off in the shower completely... I believe that when I self tanned yesterday with this product if anything after showering it made my tan look even and a stunning colour. None of it came off.
After showering I guess it makes the tan look more natural.. not so dark like how it is when you first apply. (which some are probably annoyed by) But overall, second day of being tanned with this product and it looks better than the first day. Its not orange.. I did stuff up on my elbows and my feet but thats always me..
Product is great, not orange, Does stay put for a few days strongly and would recommend!

I have been using SunLabs Tanning lotion for a few years and LOVE it. It is pricey (averaging $23 a bottle) so I've been looking for alternatives. I ordered this product with really high hopes after reading all the raving reviews on several different websites. I thought I'd give St.Moriz a shot because its so cheap.. But I am regretting that decision! If i've learned one thing it is that some things are worth the money!
I would consider myself very skilled at the application of self tanners. I ordered the mitt to go with the mousse which DID make it easier. However the next day when i woke up, I still had so many blotchy areas on my legs, I had to wear pants. It was terrible. I cant imagine what this tan would look like if someone didn't use the mit. Furthermore, the next night when I took a shower I suds up like normal,(did not exfoliate) and when I got out of the shower, my tan WAS GONE. 99% had washed off. I was left with patches of slightly tanner skin. I couldn't believe it.
It takes time too apply it evenly, takes time to develop, and then washes off right away.
Very disappointed. I will try my luck with the St.Moriz Lotion instead of the Mousse. Unfortunately I would not recommend this to a friend.
You can see where you're applying it
Clings to knuckles and other joints more than normal.
Washes right off in the shower.
Would only look decent if applied with a mitt.
Dries too fast to work with.
Is rather "orange" on tops of feet and wrists.

I have tried this product in the spray, lotion and mousse. I can say I am extremely pleased with results of such a low price product!! When you first apply it, it's like an instant tan, makes you brown but As the day progresses you get darker! The only con about this self tan is that I feel after a few days it can begin to look mucky/scaley, that weird spotty way fake tan goes, maybe it's just my skin but I would rate this self tanner in my top 5

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'm naturally very pale with skin that doesn't tan naturally). 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!
