ST.MORIZ INSTANT FACE TAN

Hello Peeps,

So today I’m doing a review on the ST. MORIZ, Instant Face Tan €3.99. I’ve been using it the past few weeks and I have to say I’m impressed. I’m usually a Rimmel girl all the way and although this is recommended as a face tan, I ran out of my instant rimmel tan and used this on my face, neck, chest and arms and it came out lovely. It’s really just a glow, so I wasn’t looking pasty, “pale & interesting” (as my pale friend calls it). Pale is not a look that everyone can pull off and I’m one of the unfortunate ones that the pale look doesn’t work for!

The Product 

St. Moriz Instant Face Tan Wash Off 100 ml €3.99, in Medium Matte, has been specially developed to create a streak free, water resistant, natural looking tan which washes off at the end of the day.

Directions

Gently exfoliate and moisturise dry areas. Squeeze some of the St. Moriz Instant Wash Off Face Tan onto your finger tips and rub into your face, blending and smoothing as you go. Make sure you blend carefully around your hairline and jaw to get a nice smooth finish. I used latex gloves while applying the tan, to prevent my fingers being stained.

The Verdict

This is a great quick fix, if you’re not in the mood of doing a full face of make up, but you feel a bit washed out and need a glow, than this is the way to go. It looks very dark but fear not, when applied it’s very natural and light in colour. When first applied it’s a little bit tacky or sticky but when it dries in, it’s light weight and you don’t feel it on your skin.

It also works good as a base for your make up for a night out, not a day look as it would be too dark, but that’s your own personal preference.

I was out of my Rimmel Sun Shimmer Instant Tan, in Light Shimmer, so I used the St.Moriz on my, face, neck, chest and arms. When applied it’s actually lighter in colour than the Light Shimmer by Rimmel and obviously hasn’t got the shimmering effect. It’s very natural, you wouldn’t even know I was wearing fake tan, it works well if you just need a healthy glow to your skin. I will definitely use this product again.

If it’s good enough for Ed Sheeran, it’s good enough for me 😀 lol

St.Moriz tan is available in all good pharmacies & Pennys/Primark.

Steffi’s Stars : 09/10 I’m finding it difficult to fault this tan. It does exactly what it says on the tin and it’s a great price at €3.99 but I’d like to see more of a selection in colour, Fair, Light and Dark should be on offer too. Other than that it’s a big thumbs up from me!

T.k.Maxx Shopping Haul

Hello fellow T.K.Maxx addicts,

I wouldn’t be lying if I said, I shop in t.k.maxx at least once a week and I have the receipts to prove it! I really think I deserve a loyalty card at this stage, I’d have thousands of points. I’ve been addicted to t.k.maxx ever since it opened in Swords, Pavilion, before that I’d venture into St.Stephens Green, Dublin city, to get my t.k.maxx fix, but not on a very regular basis. I have found some of my favorite pieces of furniture and clothing in the Blanchardstown & Swords branch. I have yet to win the €1000 in their daily prize draw, but i’ll keep entering, in life I have found that persistence pays off and my chances are good.

I popped into T.K.Maxx yesterday for a browse, two hours later I left with four bags full of fantastic finds. I just can’t help myself when I walk through the doors, it’s my weakness. Not everyone has the patients to rummage through every rack in search of that perfect unusual item, but I do! I’d spend all day in there rooting through everything. Here’s a look at a few of the items that happily came home with me.

Shoe tin €6

I didn’t even know I “needed” one of these until I came across it, in the Home Clearance section for only €6. Prior to this I had all my shoe cleaning products in a plastic freezer bag.

Dolly Skirt, Sweewe Paris, €6.00

This little dolly skirt is perfect for the festive season, it was €19.99 but I got it for €6.00 in the, young fashion clearance section. They also had them in silver, I wish I had bought the two. I might just have to pop back in tomorrow, to pick it up.

Black Fedora Hat, Kangol €19.99 (the photo’s don’t do her justice)

This is my Favorite find in my shopping haul, and she nearly didn’t make her way home with me!

When I got to the till, emptied my basket and checked my head, it was missing!! I was so disappointed because I was so happy with it and I had been wearing it around the shop, loving it, ( I don’t know how it fell off my head)? A member of staff and I had to search the shop for it. The staff member (I didn’t get her name 😦 tut tut) found it, in the home section on an artificial plant. Somebody must have picked it up after me and placed it there. I was actually delighted when she brought it to me, wihoooo 😀

Jewellery Stand, €4

Okay this is my Star Buy! I found this little treasure in the, Home Clearance section for only €4.00, WOW! It was originally €9.99 still a great price for this item. It’s missing one of the crystals at the end, on the right side, but I’m sure I’ll find something to replace it with. Sure you can hardly notice it for the time being. How could you pass it for the sake of €4, BARGAIN ALERT! This is why I love t.k.maxx, I always find a star buy.
