For A Glowing Tan . . .
OK here's the deal. Summer 2009 is set to be an absolute scorcher this year, on par with many of the overseas holiday destinations we Brits frequently travel too — great for wearing all those fabulous summer clothing usually worn abroad. However, with more skin exposed, there isn't any excuse for neglecting it during the glorious sunshine months ahead.

Rimmel London has given nature a helping hand, with three new inclusions to their tan range.

3-in-1 Shimmering Bronzer has three fabulous shades which can be used separately or together to create a variety of looks for summer. For all avid sunshimmer fans, the new Maxi Instant Tan takes the best selling medium matte shade and super-sizes it to 250ml. As Instant Tanning becomes increasingly popular in the UK, Rimmel London has introduced fair shades, in shimmer and matte, to help paler girls achieve a natural looking summer tan.

Your skin will never look so kissed by the sun.

Prices: 3-in-1 Shimmering Bronzer — £5.99 | Maxi Instant Tan — £9.99 | Instant Tan — £5.99
