Nip + Fab – Shimmer Leg Fix

Where did our lovely sunny weather go? I’ve really missed it this past week, I needed it to try out this Shimmer Leg Fix* from Nip + Fab!
I’ve never tried anything like this before, it’s like a cross between make-up for the legs and a temporary fake tan.
The product itself is a slightly translucent pale golden gel with millions of tiny golden particles that shimmer when they catch the light. It has a pretty floral rose fragrance too, not overpowering, which makes it really pleasant to apply.
You apply Shimmer Leg Fix to the legs (funnily enough) to give them a gentle golden glow, just apply a little to the hands then gently massage into the legs and feet. You don’t need to use a tanning mitt as it will just wash straight off the hands really easily.
The effect is only really subtle, and rather difficult to catch on camera! I’ve swatched a little on my arm in the image above and haven’t rubbed it in too well to try and let you see the golden shimmer effect. You can just about make it out, it also adds a gentle sheen to the skin…
Here it is applied to the leg on the left only…
You can see in the image above that the leg on the left has a subtle golden glow. I’m afraid my legs are rather pale at the moment as I haven’t fake tanned in ages, but it actually helps the Shimmer Leg Fix to show up better in the images!
The effect is only temporary and will wash off when you have a shower or a bath. I think you’d probably be OK if you got caught in a rain shower as long as you don’t allow your legs to get soaked!
I quite like this product – it’s probably not something that I’d have thought about buying before but now that I’ve tried it I think it’s quite effective. You could probably use a little on your chest too, just to highlight the collarbone, or use a tiny amount on your arms.
Nip + Fab is a bit of a cult brand at the moment, many of their products contain innovative ingredients that help to firm, smooth and boost skin. Their products are affordably priced plus they also offer 15% OFF to students via their website too.
Shimmer Leg Fix is priced at £9.99 for 150ml, available from Nip + Fab.
