Product Review – Rimmel Sunshimmer in shower self tan

Did you know? You can now self tan in the shower!

Thanks to the introduction of “Water Technology”, Rimmel have brought out a new in-shower self tanning solution – how exciting is that?

Rimmel Sunshimmer In-Shower Self Tan Hydrating Lotion is Rimmel’s first self-tanning lotion which can be applied in the shower. As soon as I heard about this product I knew I had to give it a go. All it took was four quick easy steps and my trusty Elevease Shower Step:  

  1. Hop into the shower and wash with your usual showering products.
  2. Move the shower head away from your body, take a decent dollop of the tanning lotion in your hands and then massage evenly onto your wet skin, in small circles. Make sure to cover those forgotten areas: elbows, back of the knees and ankles. You can use a tanning mit but I personally found it easier to just use my hands.
  3. Once you are happy that the lotion is evenly applied, get back under the shower and carefully rinse off.
  4. Don’t rub your skin to dry off, just pat it gently and get dressed into that outfit you’ve been dying to wear.

My thoughts
It doesn’t go on your skin dark like a normal tanning product would so the only downside with this is that you can’t see where you may have missed – but, due to its texture it was extremely easy to apply all over my legs without missing any patches and it’s so easy to distribute. I was pleasantly surprised with the colour and application! My friends commented on the lovely glow I had and I felt terrific. So my lovely followers, give this a go and let us know what you think!

Until next time,
Ms. Elevease
