St. Moriz vs. St. Tropez

Alright. Change of plans folks!

Remember when I did a how to use at home self tanner post a few months back? I said my all time favorite self-tanner was a very expensive bottle of St. Tropez. You can get it at Sephora, but I have no idea where else you can purchase it. I think certain spa’s in Toronto carry it.

Well my friend, after going through three bottles of St. Tropez between 2011-2012, I have a much more inexpensive alternative. Wait. It’s not even an alternative. It’s way better and way cheaper. I purchased it for $5.00 on ebay from the seller beautybargins4u. I know that sounds absolutely crazy, swapping out a $50 bottle of St. Tropez for a $5 bottle of St. Moriz. Haha love the names of them, don’t you? They’re always St-something or others.

Why St. Moriz better:

  • It’s $45 cheaper
  • It has more of an olive based (though I admit, St. Tropez has an olived toned to it as well)
  • St. Moriz doesn’t smell as strong
  • It lasts just as long, in fact longer
  • It doesn’t wear off patchy (St. Tropez doesn’t either, though)
  • St. Moriz was easier to spread, even though they’re both mousse I felt that the St. Tropez dried up quicker on my skin and had to use more product

The link that I directed you to above, is a seller from the UK. So bare in mind that if you were to purchase it, it may take a while to get to you.

I’ve always gotten questions about whether or not very pale people can use self tanner. Of course you can! I would suggest not using a full pump on each part of your body like I do, to get a super summer dark color. For example, I use one full pump on my lower leg, one full pump on my upper leg, and so on.

Big thanks to Jen for introducing me to St. Moriz! I owe ya.

  1. I got hooked on St Moriz in the UK and LOVE it! I am definitely a medium skin tone though…:P

  2. I haven’t used up my St. Tropez but once I do I might get some of this to try out. I’ve been using Loreal Sublime tanner also and I like it. Much more affordable than St. Tropez!
