THE BEAUTY CHRONICLE: I HAVE FALLEN OUT OF LOVE

St Moriz and I  are no longer talking



- For the best part of six months fake tan has been out of my life a lot more than it has been in.
If you had told me that I would be embracing the pale this time last year I would have laughed and slapped another layer of the orange stuff onto myself.

For the best part of 3 years I religiously wore and raved about fake tan.
I would apply 3 layers every other night and think that I looked great.

In a matter of fact I looked horrendous most days.

As a religious fake tan sporter I knew that I was applying it correctly, using the right kinds of
products to maintain and take off my tan.
But…
It still looked awful.
There is a post on this very blog that I dare not link as it shows the patchy mess that was my skin tone.
If you find it don't judge me. ;)


In the St Moriz glory days
Circa 2011

More recent times tan free…


My favourite brand of tan back in the day was that firm favourite of most girls looking for a false
tan on a budget.

Yep you guessed it…
St Moriz in the medium foam or the dark lotion.
£3.99 at Bodycare.

This week I was tempted to try a little bit of colour on my skin after a long period
of not scrubbing my skin red raw, applying a bucket load of moisturiser daily and white armpits.

I love being tanned, I feel more confident and to me personally it makes my clothes look better.
I applied St Moriz Medium Mousse in the way I used to.
Three layers after primping my skin to perfection the day before.

I showered it off and just stared at my feet, hands, knee's and elbows.
I could only describe it as
brown, dirty and scummy.
I had tidelines all over, my knees looked filthy and my neck looked grim.

The next day..the dryness set in and my whole body was tight and uncomfortable.

This isn't sexy I thought.
So I haven't bothered with it again.

There are other fake tans that I love and still use for occasions,
Lauren's Way Glam Tan spray is a particular favourite.

I have simply fallen into an altercation with fake tan!
What are you thoughts about it?
Love, Holl
