Rimmel London Sunshimmer Instant Tan Mousse

There was recently a short period of good weather in the UK, which means the summer has probably been and gone, but fear not you can still get that summer glow in a bottle. In this post I will be sharing my favourite self tanner. I rely on this tan when I want to get the balance between ghost and extra on The Only Way Is Essex.


As an extremely pale being I have tried various self tanners and have many erm how should I say interesting experiences from smelling like mouldy biscuits from the awful smell some self tanners have to resembling a carrot. But fear not, this tan is an exception and is also only £7.99 HALLELUJAH FOR A BARGAIN!!! 




I buy the darkest shade, not only because I need all the help I can get in the tan department, but I find the darkest shade looks more natural and less orange than the lighter shades, as I don;t know about you, but David Dickinson and Dale Winton are not my tan inspirations. 

The tan says it develops in 1 hour, I agree it is pretty fast developing, but I recommend leaving it on over night and then showering off in the morning for the best results. It dries extremely fast and I have never had any issues of it leaving marks on my clothes or sheets like some other tans have which is always a positive.
 
I agree that the tan leaves a streak free finish, although always take extra precautions on dry areas like elbows and knees as with any tan. When it comes to removal, this tan actually fades really well and naturally, but a good scrub of exfoliator easily removes any left over tan.

I pick this tan up from Boot's gotta cash in on them advantage card points eh?
Have you tried this tan? If so what are your thoughts or do you have any other favourite tans I would love to know what they are.

  2. I'm terrified to try anything like this as I'm so pale. I've resorted to gradual tanners so at least I can stop before I end up a shade of Towie. I know exactly what you mean about the mouldy biscuit smell haha. This sounds pretty good but I'm not sure I'm brave enough yet!

  3. I NEED THIS IN MY LIFE! For an Australian I am so super pale so I need a great fake tan. I've been using the dove gradual tanner but I think this would work better for me. Holly :) x
