That’s right! I tried it for you and LOVE it!

I’m sure we’ve all tried that tanning lotion from Walmart that starts with a J. You know which one I’m talking about. I don’t know about you but I never liked it. It always left me orange with streaks. Last summer I just got my natural tan on by hanging out around our pool. I really thought that would be the only way to ever be happy with a tan. Of course I know that causes skin damage and can cause cancer. But I LOVE being tan! I’m blonde for crying out loud! I look better tan!

So anyways, I’ve seen a lot of bloggers lately giving great reviews about this self tanner. And guess what! It’s CHEAP and you can do it yourself! WIN WIN! So here it is!


I’m not sure if you’ve heard of the St. Moriz tanning mousse but I love it! I got the instant one which allows you to chose your color. The directions say to leave it on up to 3 hours then you can wash it off. 3 hours will give you the darkest color. I like to do this at night before bed.

Here’s my routine:

  • I take a bath or shower
  • Dry off
  • Put a small amount of lotion on my knees, ankles, and elbows (So they won’t look way dark)
  • Get all my night routine done (wash my face, brush my teeth)
  • Then use a mitt to apply this tanner to my skin.
    • A mitt will help you not turn your hands a crazy color and also help rub it all in and smooth.
  • Then I let it dry for like 5-10 mins and then I’m off to bed.

I leave it on all night and then wash it off in the morning. It does not get on my sheets or clothes. And yes, you can do this before work or whatever. I just like to do mine at night.



So I have a feeling you have a few questions. I would too.

I buy mine at Ulta. It cost around $13 which is so cheap compared to the other brands.

It does not make me look orange. Brody actually said it looked good and said he liked it. (big deal)

This one stays on for about 3-4 days depending on what you are doing I guess.

I do see people put it on their face. I don’t.

If you find a place that didn’t rub in right, you can always take a wet rag and rub it off and it will look normal again.

And yes! I would totally use the mitt!

I’ve seen at least 2 bloggers use the mousse that just says dark and it wasn’t like crazy dark. I also know it’s only March so maybe the mousse that comes in Medium would be just fine for now.


I really hope this helped some of you. I know I always feel better when I have some color and I just couldn’t wait till summer to get it. I also think this stuff is very easy and functional for moms. I say that because we don’t always have enough time in the day to do things for ourselves and this actually doesn’t take hardly any time.

Ok, well that’s all I have. Have a great day!
