Woman Ends Up 'Looking Like Fiona From Shrek' After Fake Tan Fail Turns Her Skin Green

A fair-skinned red-head was left 'looking like Fiona from Shrek' when her skin turned green after she used a full bottle of fake tan.

Equine management student Lilly Vigus, from Rochester, Kent and her flatmates were bored during lockdown so decided to treat themselves to a pampering session.

Having picked up a bottle of St Moriz 1 Hour Fast Tan in shade Darker Than Dark because it was the only one left in the shop, the 18-year-old slathered it on to her skin.

After deciding to sleep in the tan rather than washing it off, Lilly was left with people comparing her to Shrek's wife Fiona from the iconic animated franchise.

Lilly said "People were calling me Fiona from Shrek because my ginger hair and green skin all matched with her.

"Because I am ginger my skin is very, very light. If I go out in the sun I just burn instantly.

"To get around this I fake tan. I don't normally use a tan this dark but it was the only one left in the shop, so I decided to give it a go.

"We decided just to put some fake tan on. Apart from horses, fake tanning is the only thing I'm interested in.

"I just decided to give it a go with the tan and I ended up using the whole bottle. After the second layer I did think it was a bit dark but I decided to keep going

"I slept in it and the next morning I had a shower and the water just kept running green for ages. Every time I washed for the next few days the water running off me was still green.

"My housemates were just shocked at how dark it had become and they all thought it was so funny.

"I went to breakfast the next morning and everyone just stopped and stared at me when they saw me.

"I got laughed at a lot."

A spokesperson for St Moriz said: "Lilly looks great after using our 1 Hour Fast Tan, we love seeing people's results and she looks naturally tanned with a healthy glow!

"Self-tanning is a great mood-booster and we love putting a smile on peoples faces by helping them feel more confident!"
