Life's Always Better With A Tan + Catch Up

So guys, how has your 2014 been going so far? Mine has been crazy busy with school work and socialising with friends but it has been a great start to the year for sure! Also finished some TV shows, The Carrie Diaries season 2 just ended and it was pretty fab. (here's a post from when I first fell in love with the show HERE, probably one of my favourite posts) Also like everyone else and their mother American Horror Story Coven was incredible, seriously not my usual kind of thing to watch but loved it. Keep an eye out for an entire post dedicated to it, hehe.
Anyway just wanted to include a quick sort of catch up before actually getting into today's post. I just wanted to share with yous a product that I have recently fallen in love with. It is Rimmel London SunShimmer Instant Tan, shade Light Matte. This stuff is a life saver.
 I'm not the best when it comes to fake tans but I decided to give this a go and it's perfect. I just use a mitt to apply it (had already used it so didn't want to use a picture haha) and rub it all over. Since you can see the colour of the product it's easy to avoid streaks or blotches. It adds a great glow but numerous layers can be applied to build up colour. This is the wash off one so definitely don't wear it in the rain or you will end up with random little water marks where it has came off! Although it does mean it showers off easily without scrubbing your skin off. Was also only £3.99 which is a great price for an instant tan that really works!
Definitely pick this up and give it a try if your on the look out for a new tan. A 'shimmer' version is also available but I much prefer matte tans.
What's your go to tan? Or do you just not bother at all and embrace the pale life?
Hope you guys enjoyed!
Love, Julie xx


  1. That's so so true! I always seem to fake tan more in the winter than in the summer!
