I have to say I really love this tan. The colour is so natural and glowy. And the fact that it develops in an hour is amazing. I think the only downfall is that when it fades it can go a little patch, but apart from that I love it!

So let me start off by saying that I don’t normally wear tan. This box actually came at great time, as I was debating to start using it, just slightly to take the paleness off my legs. Its never bothered me before but lately I don’t know, I just feel like I want that glow. ANYWAYYYYYYYYY I feel that my review may be helpful for those pale girls out there who don’t often wear tan so worry about buying it.

Product – so the product was really good. It’s a mousse base product which goes on really well if you use a mit or in my case a sock (make sure its white so you don’t get any pits on your skin If you want to be cheap like me haha) If you look at the photographs attached you’ll find that its gone on really nicely and isn’t too dark, it actually looks like a natural tan! This was two applications as I didn’t use the sock the night before and could see hand marks which I think would happen with any tan (it corrected nicely) The tan faded nicely (I done the usual body scrub trick to stop any dead skin) and didn’t fade in any patchy ways and lasted around 4 days! Over all I would give the tan a 4/5. Why my 1 star off the 5 you may ask? THE SMELL! I will always mark down for smell! It didn’t smell at the start but rest assure by the morning time it most certainly did! It did however wash off and didn’t linger.

The product is reasonably priced for £7.99 and I would definitely recommend the light matte for my fellow pale sisters 😊

STREAK FREE! TRANSFER FREE! NO HORRIBLE SMELL! This can gave my such a Bronzy glow, I was sceptical before trying as I haven't used many #rimmal products before BUT this was AMAZING! It took no time at all to put on and dried almost instantly. I received multiply complaints on how tanned I looked when useing this product so will definelty be useing again.

The only downfall and this is the only one is that I got it wet the same day I applied it and it seemed to come of a little bit. So I don't think its all that water resistant stright away.

Below I have posted a photo of before the tan was applied and then after // Rimmel London Sunshimmer Self Tan Mousse //☀️

I received this in a VoxBox and as I’ve never used fake tan before I was pretty nervous about this product, but I actually really enjoyed it! It went on easily and streak free (which I was surprised about since I’ve never applied fake tan before), it didn’t have any weird smell or anything and it gave a really natural colour, which I appreciated since I’m super fair! It claims to develop over the course of an hour but I think maybe it developed for longer than that, either way the outcome was really lovely and not too dark or anything! It did accentuate some of my shaving bumps but I do get bad shaving rashes so next time I’d probably moisturise/post shave balm my legs to see if that helps with application but over all I enjoyed the outcome! It didn’t transfer to my clothes or bed sheets either! It claims to come off your hands if you wash them immediately but it did stain mine quite a bit, however with a sponge it seemed to scrub off pretty okay! It claims to last for a week but I’ve noticed that after having a bath today the colour has faded a little and there’s a couple areas that have lifted more so but nothing too noticeable! I’m really impressed with this product and would definitely recommend it!

Ok tropical ladies, I owed you a review about the line of self-tanning from Rimmel London.

I’m a newbie to self-tanning (I thought I’d never have to write a review about self-tanning HA! #welcometoEngland). Anyway, I could certainly say these are easy peezy to apply, it doesn’t leave streaks, it brings my Venezuelan colour to life, it looks very natural, I have used it a few times now and it’s given me that perfect caribbean glow!

As for the scent, it wasn't bad at all! As you might expect, the products have the usual fake tan smell but It's not too strong and it doesn't bother me at all.

 I would recommend it to anyone! The price is also very good compared to similar products.

Well after using Rimmel’s Sun Shimmer self tanning mousse last night I am VERY impressed 😍😍

It’s really difficult to find a good, natural looking self tan when you’re pale and have red hair, so I’m totally bowled over with how wearable this self tan has been! A few people at work today even asked if I’d been out in the sun, which is much better than ‘what self tan have you used?’!

I’m a big fan of tanning mousse in terms of texture. This went on streak free with a tanning mitt and was very buildable. I’ve also noticed very little in terms of that nasty self tan smell, which is a rare thing I find!!

I’m not sure how long the tan will last, but the bottle says up to 7 days, which would be amazing!!! I have washed my hands several times today and they’re still the exact same shade, which is a very good start. Definitely recommend for any fair skinned maidens out there! ☀️☀️☀️

I received this product complimentary from influenster however my opinion is honest and my own.

First initial thoughts:
- there is a scent but it's a little floral? Not a typical tan smell but it's a nice scent anyway.
- texture reminds me of bondi sands, it's a foamy, wet mousse, it comes our the bottle darker than it applies

- the bottle states you can use your hands but I used a mitt as I prefer it.
- it blended really really nicely, it was so easy to blend in and didn't dry too fast so you could blend any streaks you missed.
- the colour guard is a good colour so you can see where you've already applied so you can't miss anywhere.

- drying took longer than 2 minutes, probably around 20 minutes to fully dry down.
- I changed into baggy clothing and slept in it, the bottle says it develops in 1 hr but I always sleep in my tan to get the best out of it.
-the best part... NO TRANSFER. There was no transfer on my clothes of bedding whatsoever!!

After And results:
- in the morning I rinsed excess tan off as always with cold water and no soap, however ALOT of the tan rinsed away.
- I was left with a light to medium tan everywhere and no tan on my legs.
- however the tan was absolutely streak free, no blotchyness or patches at all.

-as the tan was completely dry I would say you could get away with not washing it and therefore the tan would be darker, however that means that it'll come off as soon as you shower so it wouldn't last very long.

I really love this product.
I know I've given it 4 starts but hear me out....
I really love the product but I had to apply twice to get desired colour, this is not the products fault. I'm a natural olive skinned person so I needed the medium colour and not the light.

The description said it has a none tan smell, I didn't smell much while applying but during development I could differently smell it but it wasn't a horrible smell.

The tan lasted about a week without re application. It was a stunning bronzed golden colour not orange! Easy to apply and streak free !
