The time has finally come, festivities are here, and with that so is my first Christmas gift guide post of 2019. My plan for these blog posts is to post individual reviews of potential gifts and limited edition gift sets and then do a round up post near Christmas for all you last minute shoppers to have an ultimate gifting guide list. With that lets get into the first post of this blogging series…
St Moriz Weekender gift set: £15 available at Superdrug
This gift set is such an amazing gift for anyone who fake tans. It contains all the essentials for a regular fake tanner at such an affordable price, making an amazing gift for your girl pals (or even girlfriend *wink wink hello boys reading this*). I only started doing winter tanning this year and honestly it is game changing and I don’t know how I never had tried it all these years.
As someone still a novice to fake tanning this kit was amazing when I tested it out as it contains all you need to get the perfect streak free tan. The contents include: exfoliating skin primer, 5 in 1 tanning mousse, a self tan remover and of course the velvet tanning mitt. All of the products fit into the gorgeous bag, which I now am using for toiletries when travelling.
The tan itself was really natural and genuinely a lovely colour considering the price. Usually the slightly cheaper tans do worry me as they have a tendency to be very orange toned rather than a natural olive brown. With this tan though I was really shocked and now can’t believe how much I have been spending on tan all of this time when I could have been buying the St Moriz tan. Only slight issue I had was that when I left it on for 6 hours (it suggests 4-6) I wasn’t super dark which surprised me considering I am naturally extremely pale and this was the medium shade. However, for most people this would probably be a positive as it is better the tan is natural and controllable than fake looking dark. Of course I thought I should include a photo of my tan which is below (left being without tan, middle with tan applied, right the tan washed off after 6 hours).
Overall I do highly recommend this gift for anyone who fake tans or even for yourself looking to get all the fake tan essentials. The quality is amazing considering the cost of this gift set – I was very impressed.
