{ Review } Caribbean Tan Tinted Body Bronzer Shimmer Cream

Caribbean Tan Tinted Body Bronzer Shimmer Cream, R59.95

What they say: Gives your skin a beautiful, subtle and glamorous glow. Suitable for any occasion or just to feel gorgeous. Just the right amount of micro-sparkles to even out skin-tone, making small imperfections less noticeable. Formulated with skin conditioning Aloe Ferox Gel and Vitamin E.


What I say: I do love this product, but I have to say that ‘subtle’ should have perhaps been left out of the description (see below).

It delivers a powerful bronze glow, but without the faff of having to wait for the colour to develop. It’s a silky cream that applies and blends easily onto the skin.


Once set, it stays put, although I don’t know I’d trust it on white clothing, especially if you were to get a bit sweaty. But for exposed areas, this is a quick and easy tanning solution.

You can see how it looks on my deathly pale skin, so am sure it will work well on all skin tones, and will look incredible over self tan, if you really want to up the ante.

    Hi, say i put on the gradual mousse carribean tan, should i wait the 8 hours and first take a shower the next morning, and then afterwards apply the shimmer ?

    Hi Nadia

    Yes, that’s correct. If you put anything over the mousse, it will streak. Apply the mousse, let it develop for 8 hours, wash off and then apply the shimmer, if you want it.
    The shimmer doesn’t really add a huge amount of colour, though, it’s more for people who don’t want to go through the hassle of applying self tan.

    Hope this makes sense?
