Rimmel Sun Shimmer Instant Tan
I must say that i wasn't a big lover of fake tan only because of the girls that i see today who slap te stuff on thick to the point that they look either patchy, orange and look like they have been tangoed!!!!! I am a pale person so i used the sun bed to get a bit of colour on my skin until i realised the damage it was doing to my skin over the years!!!!!
It wasn't intention that i bought this product i was recommended by a friend who uses this and said it doesn't have the tan horrible smell(a bit musty)
my friend who recommended me to use the product said it was very easy to use you dont have to scub a few times to get the stuff off it come off easy when showered and it was a a reasonable price for £3.99 (in bodycare) but you can pay up to £5.99 in boots.
Before i used the tan to get the best results i ex foliated my skin to get any dry skin if you don't do this you get a horrible layer over the tan and doesn't look as good! then i got my mitt(you can use a sports sock it does the job just as good) and i layer the tan on thinner first when i covered my self i still did look a bit pale so i waited a hour to see if the colour changed and i did and i tan glow that i wanted!!!!! so when i went out i didnt have to worry about it streaking looking orange or even pale for that matter!!!!
The next day after i used the tan i didnt have anything on my bedsheets so it doesn't run sometimes when you get a tan and wake up and your bed sheets and your clothes are the same colour as your tan!!!!!
Rimmel sun shimmer instant tan come in a 125ml bottle its easy to use so no spraying (so you know wont get covered over a cream carpet or on the clothes you were going to wear. you can get it in a shimmer but i would nt pile the shimmer on as it would look like you have been blasted by a glitter ball! you can buy the product in different types of shades if you buy a darker version of the item add some baby lotion and it will lighten the tan and keep you skin soft aswel!!!! if after a few uses of the item you could go a bit darker if you feel that the tan is too light!!!
I like this product because it was easy to use my bed sheets weren't ruined and i got a lovley tan that wasnt streaky orange and patchy. i was just happy to have a lovley glow that gives me cofidence as i said before that i was a very pale person
This item is a MUST!!!!!! i would recommend this to anyone and for the price its a bargain i have not bad comments to say about it only that if you dont ex foliate you will not get the results that you wanted!!!!!
