Happy Friday ladies, you made it to the weekend! 🙌 I’m so happy it is the weekend. College was not fun this week, assignments, presentations, study ahh the list goes on. Anyways, Today I am writing about Rimmel Sun Shimmer self tan Mouse. I posted a photo about it last week and some have you have been asking what it is like, so here is the blog post to give you the full details.
I had been dying to try it and now that I have I can say it’s creeping in to be one of my favourite instant tans. So first things first, It is a instant tan made by Rimmel. It comes in three shades. Light, medium and dark. I have been using the medium shade all week. They are available from Penneys stores and pharmacies nation wide. And costing just €6.50 (Penneys price).
So an instant tan means you’re tanned the minute the mouse touches your body! The mouse comes out of the bottle brown so you can see exactly where you are placing it and see any places where you may miss normally. I apply it with a tanning mit which works well for me.
What I love is that there isn’t that “tan smell” from this instant mouse. It has a fresh scent. Almost like baby wipes. That’s what I thought of when I smelt it first. 😂 It drives me crazy when I can smell my tan off me or others infact, Especially with instant tans because you’re more then likely putting it on the day you need it so a tan with no smell is like perfect!
The tan dries in minutes and the bottle says it takes about 3-6 hours to develop. I notice it darkening about an hour or two later. You can get dressed fairly shortly after applying the tan also as there is no stickiness. (Happy days)
Now some of you may apply the tan the night before and then have a shower the next morning, the bottle says washes off with soap and water so I had a very light shower the other morning and I was left with a very natural tan which was nice for the occasion I was going to. If you’re looking for a darker tan I would advise building it up maybe two days before so you can still have your shower in the morning but still be left golden brown. Or simply try the dark shade.
As I said I have been using it all week so applying moisturiser is important to help maintain the tan and to avoid Skaley skin.
So far I’m loving this tan. For the price I am paying it does a great job. If you’re going out this weekend I would recommend you try it. If you do try it out tag me in your Instagram outfit/tan posts. 👉🏽@allthingsgirlybyshannagh 👌🏼 Let me know if you have tried it or if you have any questions just ask.
Thanks for reading. HAPPY TANNING and enjoy your weekend 😎 x
