Rimmel In-Shower Tan

When Spring arrives, so do all the new tanning products generally – I’ve definitely seen them taking a front seat in stores lately, but I haven’t seen this in-store quite yet.  You can, however, get it at Boots online (link with the photo.)

Rimmel’s In-Shower Tan is taking a nod from a few other high-end tanner brands, who offer something akin to the in-shower moisturizers of the last year or two.  The idea is that you can apply while taking a shower, only to be left with a several-day bronze glow…and a few more minutes in the day (since you could do this during your usual routine.)

 The Rimmel product is a “1 minute express” lotion designed to deliver a sunkissed glow within just a few hours. It’s streak-free, faux-tan-scent-free (that’s always nice!) and buildable.

The reviews didn’t look stellar, but I came across ReallyRee’s thoughts on the rinse-off and she seemed to enjoy it.  And anyway, it IS safer than baking too long in the sun!

L’Oreal Cushion Glow!

The number of brands joining the cushion party is astounding…although I can’t say surprising!  I’ve written countless posts about the influence of Asian skincare (here, here, here, aaaand here, as a few examples) and color cosmetics, and the trend(s) just keep forging ahead.

L’Oreal is taking a step beyond just foundations and color correction (two areas that are becoming increasingly more saturated.)  Their Instagram page showed a sneak peak of six sassy, Spring-infused blush shades, suggesting that they will be rolling out worldwide shortly:

  • P1 Pink Fantasy
  • P2 Pink Romance
  • P3 Rose Affair
  • C1 Sunkissed Coral
  • C2 Sunset Coral
  • F1 Fuchsia Flush

The word is that they are less creamy than they are “watery,” but I think with any cushion product, you do get a lighter, sheerer texture in general.  For me, that’s a nice thing because I don’t like to be heavy-handed – buildable is always a nice thing, as with such control, you can fully create the intensity you are looking for.  It’s nice to have a natural, lit-from-within glow…isn’t it?
