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.
