Rimmel Sun Shimmer Instant Tan (light)

First off, sorry for the glare in the photo. I tried my hardest to conquer it, this included standing in so many stupid positions! I was going out last Friday and decided on the day that I needed to fake tan so I rushed to my local savers and picked this up, I had many people recommend it to me.

Using a mitt I rubbed on this instant tan and it honestly went on streak free! Another good thing is that it does not have that horrible biscuit smell that a usual fake tan does. The colour was a perfect for me, it looked so natural. However I would say that light may be too light for people with a darker skin tone than me, I'm mega pale!

The tan is meant to last up to 24 hours and washes off straight away with soap and water. Even the nightclub was so cramped and hot it actually lasted all night! I still wouldn't trust it in the rain though or in direct contact with water. One bad point about this tan is that it is not transfer resistant as it states on the bottle nevertheless I am so impressed with this product! I also have so much more uses in the bottle that I have. It costs around £6.99 from places such as Boots.

Have you tried this product?
