And let me tell you this product definitely does a mighty job. I think I have finally found a 'holy grail tan'.
On Rimmels' website, www.rimmellondon.com if you're interested, this is what they have to say about the product.
The tan itself does provide instant colour, but nothing too mad, I think it's more a guide colour so you can see where it's been applied already.
I also find after an hour the shade has started to deepen a bit, and after maybe 4 hours it's developed into a nice bronzed shade, that's deep enough for me. (I'm using the light shade for the record. The best bit for me is that it doesn't have to be washed off!
You just apply it, let it dry (it dries very quickly FYI,) and you're good to go!
It goes on really easily, and it doesn't streak at all.
It doesn't transfer onto clothes or sheets which is a pain in the backside with most tans.
It's matte, so it's really natural looking, so nothing like the sunshimmer of day's gone by where we'd look like a disco ball after application!
However, the only claim I'd disagree with is the claim that there's no fake tan smell. Because there is. Not as strong as most other tan's, but after a while you do get that biscuit smell.
But to be honest, because I think the product is so brilliant, I'll forgive it that! I genuinely think this is the most fool proof tan I've ever tried. It doesn't even go funny on my hands, which happens with every tan I've used!
As for longevity, I find if I moisturise well after I shower and exfoliate, I can get a good week out of the tan. I haven't reapplied it so I can't say whether it lives up to the claim that it lasts' 2-3 weeks. But a week for me is plenty!
I'm currently rocking the pale look, so I shall update this at the weekend with some pictures
when I'm a bronzed goddess to show you all what the colour is like! :)
It's priced around 7.99 I believe, and you can buy it in most Penney's and most pharmacies!
Have you tried it?
What are your thoughts on it?
