Rimmel Sunshimmer - Waterproof!

The very first fake tan I ever used was Rimmel's Sunshimmer. I used it on my bare legs when going out on the razzle so they didn't look like they'd been whitewashed, spending many a Saturday night slapping it on while the taxi man beeped outside. The colour is pretty good for a temporary tan and it always washed off easily in the shower the next morning, acting as an easy intro into the hard stuff (I'm talking St Tropez, Fake Bake, Sienna X and Vita Liberata.) The main gripe of many people using this though is that it easily smudged or moved if someone accidentally spilled their mojito on you, or you got a little bit too hot on the dancefloor. Fear not ladies, because Sunshimmer is now available in a waterproof version! Not only will it keep you looking bronzed all night long and beyond, apparently it's even pool resistant for when you want to take a dip on holiday before the tan has naturally kicked in. I can't say I've had a chance to try it under that context yet (I wish I was somewhere hot with a pool, but alas I'm currently in West London watching Eastenders,) but this sounds like a must have for any forthcoming holidays.

Available now priced £5.99


  1. This sounds great, I love that it's waterproof!

  2. It definitely sounds useful. I always end up with streaks down my legs from people's drinks, so annoying.

  3. I'm mixed race with dark skin an sun shimmer is a night out essential for making my legs look flawless. It really evens out my skin tone and gives them a Beyonce glow. I've been craving a waterproof version for a while now though cos it streaks SO badly!!

  4. Oh my word this is such exciting news. I really hope it works. Sunshimmer was my first tan I bought as a early teen and wore to school *naughty* and I still wear it now for nights out... LOVE this tan x x

  5. I love this stuff - so cheap & cheerful, can't wait to try the waterproof version :) xx

  6. I haven't had a chance to give it a whirl in moist conditions yet, but I will do ASAP! There seems to be a lot of love for this already.
