Loving Tan Bronze Shimmer Cream Review




I have wanted to try out this product out by Loving Tan for such a long time, and I am so excited to finally have my hands on it. For those of you who don’t already know, Loving Tan is a sunless tanner brand based in Australia and their products have taken the world by storm. For the longest time, I would just stare longingly at people using this brand on Instagram and YouTube, because it was so hard to get here in the UK. The only way that you could get it in this country was by ordering directly from Loving Tan in Australia and it would end up costing an absolute arm and a leg in import charges and VAT.

Luckily, Loving Tan now have a UK stockist and I have been buying from them ever since, which is about a year and it has been an absolute god send. So, I figured that it was finally time to treat myself and get my hands on the Loving Tan Body Shimmer and give it a go for myself. From what I could see online, this looked like body makeup that was very shimmery, bronzey and with a really dark colour, which is everything that appeals to me. If you have seen this over on their Instagram, you cannot deny that this makes the skin look absolutely flawless whenever anybody uses it, so I had to try it!

The reason why I wanted this to start with, was to use on my chest. For some reason, no sunless tanner seems to take well on my chest. Over the years, I have tried so many different brands and for some reason, nothing seems to do the job. My arms will be super dark, as well as my face, but my chest is as white as a ghost. Usually if I am wearing something that does show my chest, I have to take my makeup down to even out the colour, but I thought that this Loving Tan Body Shimmer might do a better job and might match my fake tan better, seen as though I use Loving Tan all over my body.

When I first got this, I was a little nervous to try it out, because I was worried that it was all going to go horribly wrong. What I did, was put a small amount of this on my usual fake tan mitt, and I just slowly applied it to my skin, starting with my chest. From the moment I started putting this on my skin, the first thing that I noticed was how lovely and smooth it went onto the skin. This almost felt like a moisturiser on the skin and my chest ended up feeling lovely and moisturised by the time I was finished applying it.

I found that this Loving Tan Body Shimmer was so easy to apply because the colour went onto the skin nice and evenly. When you first apply this, it is crazy dark, but nothing too much and it blends out to match the Loving Tan Ultra Dark Mousse almost perfectly. This does have a shimmer running through it, which I think makes the skin look so healthy, glowing and perfect for the warmer summer months. I have been primarily applying this to my chest to help balance out the lack of colour, but also when I apply this down the arms and, on the legs, it makes the skin look so flawless, smooth and perfected.

My concern with this product, was that I thought it was going to feel sticky on the skin and that it would transfer onto my clothes, but that really isn’t the case. If you were to layer this up, I can imagine that it would start to feel a little tacky, but with a nice light layer, you really have nothing to worry about.

There really isn’t much more that I can say about this product. The colour really is beautiful, it makes the skin look lovely and healthy, it sits on the skin like a dream and it doesn’t transfer. This hits every single thing that I would ever want from a product like this and I love how it looks. I know for a fact that when I run out of this, I am going to repurchasing another one straight away. Plus, for the price of £31, I think it is worth every single penny!
