How moisturizing is this?

Quite moisturizing. St. Tropez Pro Light Classic Refill has a moisturizing rating of 3.0 out of 10.

Is it more humectant or occlusive?

Purely humectant. It has a moderate Humectancy of 5.9 out of 10 and zero Occlusivity (we didn't find any occlusives on the ingredient list).
Tip: Studies suggest that humectants alone do not moisturize the skin. We recommend applying a product with some occlusive ingredients after the use of this one.
