“absolute life saver!”

Written on: 10/05/2013 by Shanshan (1 review written)

This fake tan is probably the best fake tan in the market so far! It smells absolutely fine, which means you wont have that ghastly smelling tan on you for days on end and is so easy to apply. I never wore fake tan before, but when i bought this product it was so easy and simple, it made me feel comfortable and i use it every time i go out! I'm a very pale person so i'm wary of using products that'll change my look drastically, but its a major help and it looks so natural with that slight hint… Read Full Review

“WHAT HAS HAPPENED TO A ONCE WONDERFUL PRODUCT”

Written on: 03/05/2013 by flugra (1 review written)

I have used Rimmel sunshimmer false tan for over 15 years and never had a problem applying it evenly and streak free, but every time I use it now I have streaks all over and elbows and ankles are left thick brown. This product used to be alot easier to apply, just a little moisturiser in a line up the leg or down the arm and then the sunshimmer and gently rubbed in to get a wonderful even tan. Now I find you have to rub in really hard and whereas before the moisturiser would blend in evenly it… Read Full Review

“Love it!”

Written on: 19/03/2013 by rologirl (1 review written)

It's so quick and easy to apply, only takes me about 20 mins to do arms, legs, chest and back. If you do somehow mess it up it's easy to fix as it's wash off! I have the light shimmer which gives a nice subtle colour, definitely not orange just a nice glow. I might try the medium next for a slightly darker tan. It doesn't smell at all and i've only noticed it transfer onto the old clothes i put on immediately after tanning, so be aware of that. It didn't even transfer onto the white dress I… Read Full Review

“Oh dash! this is rubbish!”

Written on: 19/12/2012 by Elwynhughes (1 review written)

Both me and my girlfriend use this product. Actually it's just my girlfriend that has used it but I have seen the advert..and we both agree that it is rubbish and causes streaks and doesn't spread evenly or easily like I would expect from a product that costs as much as £3.99.. So to sum up we don't like this product whatsoeva.also it has ruined our lovemaking due to its vile smell and look. ....my girlfriend just notices that when she applies it she looks like a tangerine or carrot… Read Full Review

“Fantastic result with great price”

Written on: 28/05/2012

After I used a fake spray tan from Loreal 2 years ago I promised myself I would never try again. But I was desperate to get my legs to look presentable (they did not see the sun for 6 years). I bought this washable roduct and I was never more surprised in my life! Fantastic colour (I chose the fairest shade). Yes it does appear pinky at the beginning but then it blends into beautiful tan. The smell is fantasic!!! (I used to hate the smell of Dove tanning lotion). It ries extremely quickly… Read Full Review

“Had an allergic reaction”

Written on: 06/04/2012

I am not allergic to anything else and have never been. I do not have sensitive skin at all and I'm only 17. I put this on at the start of the day- be careful if you buy it, needs to be spread out quickly as it'll dry and go streaky if not. But however by the middle of the day I noticed red itchy bumps clustering around my knee and up my leg. By the end of the day I had full on rashes going up my legs. Obviously doesn't apply to everyone but I would just be aware when buying the product. Also… Read Full Review

The best way to go is to get a tan accelerator with SPF in it.I like Australian Gold SPF 8 Spray Gel with Instant Bronzer. It's very water reiantsst and protects you from getting burned, while using the oil and bronzer to accelerate the tanning process.After tanning, I recommend using Banana Boat Moisturizing Aloe After-Sun Tan Preserving Lotion. It keeps your skin hydrated and makes your tan last longer. Both of these products are relatively cheap and can be purchased at Walgreen's.Happy tanning, hope this helps!

“Stains clothes”

Written on: 27/03/2012 by rachelg2 (1 review written)

Has anybody experienced pink staining on fabric as a result of Rimmel Sunshimmer rubbing off on it? I have tried everything to remove this - from initially wiping stains with baby wipes, then using baby wipes with Vanish sprayed on them. Washing garment with Ariel Whitener but cannot get the pink stains removed.If anybody knows a solution to this could you please share. Thank you!… Read Full Review

Written on: 04/04/2011 by littlemissmerlot (2 reviews written)

Fantastic product that I have been using for over 10 years. It is a gel/cream make up that produces immediate results that shower off. Product comes in light or medium and is matt or shimmer. Be warned the medium shimmer is intense deep brown so if you are looking for a subtle glow unless you have darker skin to begin with the result will be dramatic. Wear gloves to apply because it will stain hands, use cosmetic sponge with a little moisurizer for hand/feet application, it will transfer onto… Read Full Review

“RIMMEL SUN SHIMMER BRONZING MOUSSE = 10/10 ”

Written on: 16/01/2011 by Jessica Rabbit (2 reviews written)

RIMMEL SUN SHIMMER BRONZING MOUSSE = 10/10

This mousse is the best bronzing product I have ever used.

It works instantly, is easy to use, it looks real and it lasts a long time despite what you might first think.

The mousse is a great application technique that supersedes any gel formula; it's light and dries very quickly.

The only draw back is that is can stain your hands pretty well and only lasts one day.

That being said, just coat your hands with some body butter before application… Read Full Review

for someone like me who doesn't tan very easily and finds spray tans a little dark this product is great!!! i use med matte as the shimmer i find makes me look a little over the top. i use daily and mix with a little moisturiser to apply a smoother coverage. i alwys recommend gloves with this product because if you dont work quickly it stains your hands.. overall a great last min fixer. =)… Read Full Review

Written on: 11/12/2010

I bought this because the shop asistant was wearing it. I took it home and tried and was really pleased. I bought it in medium matt but went back and bought the shimmer medium for a party. It didn't really have a smell and dried really quickly so i could put clothes on soon afterwards. I could see the difference and it doesn't streak if you rub in well. The only thing I would be careful about is that because it dries quickly you need to rub it in fast but that comes with practice. Another good… Read Full Review

Written on: 25/08/2010

I wear the matte sun shimmer every single day and have done since I was 16 years old, I'm now 26!! I use it on my face almost like a base coat which means I don't have to wear bronzer or reapply any make up during the course of the day and because it has a red tint to the gel, it gives a much more natural tan than any of the others on the market... plus its instant, so what could be better!… Read Full Review

i would strongly recommend sun shimmer to others, i have used it manys of times and find it to be one of the best fake tans around, even though its so cheap! i thought the smell was nice and not too strong, like others. it appeared instantly, with no streak. i would strongly recommend you wear gloves or mittens as it can turn your hands quite orange! its great because if it does turn out wrong all you have to do is pop into the shower (: lol. i tend to use fair matte which gives a lovely… Read Full Review

Written on: 08/06/2010

I tried this as I had seen good reviews of it and it was really cheap compared to other products. But I really wasn't impressed - it seems with this product, you get what you pay for. The good thing about this product is it gives you a really good colour (I used medium and I would say I'm fairly pale but tan easily) and it's instant. I wore it for a party and got really great comments all night on how well and tanned I looked. I didn't look orange at all or too dark. Plus it dries really… Read Full Review
