I ran out of my beloved Vita Liberata self tanner that came in a giveaway that I won from qvc, and while I really liked it, I didn't want to fork over $54 for it. I purchased a super affordable one from Ulta, the St. Moriz instant self tanning mousse in dark for $12.99. That's quite a big price difference!
This comes in medium and dark. My Vita Liberata one was in medium, and while I liked the color of it I also kind of wish it was just a tiny bit darker. So I went with the dark shade for the St. Moriz.

-This is an excellent and affordable self tanner. I do prefer the Vita Liberata one a tiny bit more, but I'm very please with the results I get with this one and I love the price tag.
-This blends beautifully (I use a tanning mitt), and it never is streaky. It dries super fast and isn't sticky.
-The shade 'dark' is very nice, it's gives a deep bronzed color. It looks natural on my skin, especially when the excess is washed off after a shower the morning after when it's all developed.
-It doesn't have a typical self tanner scent. It does have a slight perfume scent, but I don't find it too strong and I can't smell it after its applied.
-It does have a tint, so you can see where you are applying it.
-I find this lasts around 3 days on me, which is about normal for any self tanner I use. I usually self tan 1-2 times a week. It fades nicely, and doesn't end up patchy like some self tans I've used.
Overall this is a great and affordable self tanner, and I'd definitely repurchase it once I run out!
