At this time of year it can be hard to feel like you have a minute to yourself. Between work, parties and evenings out, time is of the essence. So, in an effort to save as many precious minutes as possible, I’ve been using St. Moriz’ Velvet Finish Tanning Gel in an effort to beat my winter white skin. Promising to give salon results, without all the fuss (or expenditure), it couldn’t be easier to apply. Applied with a tan mitt to clean, exfoliated skin, the formula feels wonderfully silky, and it positively glides on.
There are two shades available – Medium and Dark. Since I’m naturally the shade of paper, I’m a fan of Medium. It gives a natural looking glow without veering into the dreaded oompa loompa category, and it also works to soften skin. The effect is of a believable tan which can be built up day by day. I tend to apply each night for around three nights, then top up as required. Despite top ups, I’ve never suffered from any streaks or dirty knuckles, and I love how easy it is to keep my tan looking fresh!
St. Moritz’ Velvet Finish Tanning Gel is priced at £7.99 and is available here.
