The St.Moriz was good, review of that here, but it left me half and half because I have to order it online (not available in Canada) and I think I need the dark version as the regular doesn't get me dark enough. There are lots and lots of self-tanning products that can be found in the drugstore, some better than others, lots of gradual ones, not too many instant however. I picked up L'oreal Sublime Mousse, it comes in an attractive curvy bottle, it was $13.99 at Walmart in Canada. It's pricey in my opinion for what you get, it's a 150ml bottle, but since it's a mist you use A LOT of it. I used up the entire bottle in 2 days!
Want to know what I think? I think the pictures below will tell the story well, but here is a synopsis. This is a mediocre product. First off, it does not dry in a flash, half an hour later I can still feel it's tackiness, it does not set as quickly as I would expect judging from the description. The smell is okay, I was experiencing migraines while applying this and I don't think the smell helped, I started doing it outside near the end (I would recommend always applying tanning products outside in the fresh air). When it sprays out it is a fine mist, however it sprays out CLEAR so you cannot tell how much you are putting on, where you've already put it on or how it will look. So I was left with light and dark spots everywhere and I for some reason could not get them to match up very well. The colour is nice, it's a golden tone, not red and looks believable I think, IF you could get it even, which I cannot. When it sprays out there is a cloud of it all over you, like an arm's length so I feel like I am losing product.
Another thing I noticed while waiting and waiting and waiting for it to dry, when sprayed it would cling to the baby hairs on my skin, and didn't seem to absorb at all, maybe this product is just not meant for my skin? This is not a quick dry product. I was fanning myself and blowing on my skin to get this to dry it was that bad.
Would I recommend this product? It did not work well for me, so no I would not recommend it. I had high hopes for this judging by it's claims on the packaging but the claims were not true. Combined with how slow it dries, the clear texture (tricky application) and how fast I went through the bottle I would not re-purchase this. I am thinking of trying the "dark" version because maybe I won't need as much product to get the effect that I want. Please tell me your experiences if you've used this before.
