Sun Shimmer Self Tan Mousse


If you have been watching my recent Youtube videos lately then you probably would have heard me
banging on about how much I have been DIY self tanning at home lately. Well here is one of the main
products I have been using in my daily tanning routine. Rimmel London's Sun Shimmer Self Tan
Mousse is available in your choice of 'Light Matte', 'Medium Matte' or 'Dark Matte.' I have been 
using the Dark Matte shade and initially I was thinking it was going to be WAY too dark for my super
light skin, as usually I will either tan gradually or stick to the light tanning shades so not to over do it.
However this 'Dark Matte' shade wasn't OOT at all and looked super natural on the skin. No orange
tinge to it AT ALL, it is beautifully chocolaty brown and looks flawless!

This 150ml pump style bottle to so easy to use and as you can see from the image above, this is the
amount of product you get with just one pump which was enough for me to apply one coat to my 
whole leg top to bottom. Honestly though once I first applied it which dried in just a few seconds
I thought it really wasn't giving me enough colour so I applied an extra coat to see how it would 
develop within the recommended hour. Once the hour was up the formula had darkened only slightly
on my skin so was still looking very natural. 

After 3 weeks of application each day my tan quickly built up into a sun kissed glow and not too dark
that I was unrecognisable! It lasts up to 7 days so after over month of using this it has maintained an
all over even shade as I have been exfoliating every few days in-between which washes some of the 
colour off each time. 

Overall I would really recommend this self tanning mousse to both beginners and long time users of
DIY self tans as it is not only a great price, the mildly scented moisturising, light foam is up there in 
terms of a budget friendly product. The quality is as good as the more expensive brands in my 
opinion and experience. 

Available NOW at Priceline & other selected stores for only $16.95
