I keep getting asked which fake tan I use so thought it was the perfect opportunity to blog .....

I absoloutely swear by 'St.Moriz' which is basically a badly named rip off of the iconic 'St.Tropez' brand! I have tried St.Tropez in the past and in my opinion, this is so much better! With it only costing £2.99 I am obviously verryyy happy about the fact it works well for me! Saves me a LOT of dollar!

My tan Stash.
This tan comes in a white bottle with a pump. The bottle is a bit tacky looking, but I can look past that as the product inside works wonders. It pumps out as a mousse which I think is really handy, much easier to work with than liquid or cream tans. It shows where you are applying the colour too so you can make sure you are streak-free. Again, much handier than some tans that are applied as a white cream or liquid :S (never understood that!).

It gives me a lovely golden brown colour instead of orange which a lot of other brands can! My tan routine before a night out involves me applying a layer of St.Moriz before bed after I've showered, washing it off the next morning and then applying another layer to develop during the day! Most of the time, this is enough tan but if I do want a deeper colour I use 'Rimmel instant tan' in Matte (I hate shimmery tan!)

Rimmel tan is a wash-off tan which is sometimes a bit of a nightmare if your on a night out and the heavens decide to open! Streaky tan is not a good look and I have experienced it many times, sat in the toilets attempting to make my tan look some-what normal with tissue paper. This is definitely a bad point with this tan! However, I find it perfect if I've totally forgot to use my St.Moriz and need a quick-fix tan!

Me all tanned up!

Is there any fake tans that you would recommend?! 

Kisses, Kayleigh..



  1. So glad to hear a good review on St. Moriz as I have bought it but just not got round to trying it yet, I also have their instant tan which I am yet to try! I used to use Rimmel instant all the time for nigths out just as its so quick and easy but your right about the hassle when it rains or a drink gets spilled on you! Not a good look lol.

    I normally use the Xentan Dark Lotion which is brilliant but a bit pricey at £17 a bottle.


  2. i use st moriz! i love it. I tried the Dark one recently, and it really is dark! lol. Usually with the normal one I could get away with not washing it off, but with the dark one i look like Fatima from I'm a Celeb (not a good look haha) I usually use the spray on my face and on my legs, then the mouse on my arms and my body. I love your skirt in your picture btw! :) x

  3. @thelandofbeautyblog - Ahh glad to hear you liked it! I think i have tried their instant, didn't rate it as highly as the rimmel, it seemed a bit too pale for me! I'd love to try the Xentan out, I've heard brill reviews! £17.00 is pretty steep but I guess it's the price us girls pay in the name of beauty haha! Thanks for reading, Kayleigh. xXx.

    @chloeinwonderland - Glad you agree on it's amazingnesssss! The spray is good too, hadn't thought about using it on my face though, might give that a whirl! Haha Fatima, made me LOL! It's actually a dress on my picture, everyone always thinks it's a skirt and top haha, from Topshop :)! Thanks for reading, Kayleigh. xXx.

  4. I use St Moriz, too! I love that you can see the colour as it goes on. Apparently it has almost the same ingredients has St Tr5opez has! xo

  5. Yeah it wouldn't surprise me! I personally think it's better! The St.Tropez I used went on as a white foam and I didn't like it half as much! Xxx.

  6. I've got to agree i swear by this tan too!


  7. you should definitely give the lotion and dark mousse version of this a go, there amazing! I have all three at a time and switch between which I use when going on a night out haha :) xx
