          I had high hopes for this product, I exfoliated, applied an oil free lotion to dry parts of my body, and it still remains streaky! I do prefer a self tanner that works quickly, but even though this lotion dries down it looks very unnatural on fair skin.

            Comments about L'Oréal Sublime Bronze Tinted Self Tanning Lotion:

            This was a good product to begin with. Using it alone however proves to be hard because you will have streaks!!! The best way I found to use it was to shower and exfoliate, then apply lotion and let it dry then apply this with my hands and use a makeup brush to even everything out. I will I could just apply it easily without all the extra steps but I guess you get what you paid for. Also the smell isn't horrible but it isn't pleasing so I usally tan at night and let it dry until the morning.

              I have been using this for years. The gel goes on easily and dries quickly. The smell is ok and has gotten better over the years. The tan is pretty even depending how careful you apply of course.
              While it's not as good as St Tropez, it's very inexpensive.

                I've had one too many issues with potential skin cancer spots, so this is what I use now to get a basic looking tan. Some reviews state that the application is uneven- I just mix this with an unscented lotion and that tends to keep the streaks at bay.

                  this looked so good when i had finished applying it. it was shimmery and looked even everywhere. it dries fast and didn't feel sticky. so i was feeling pretty stoked! i sat around for a few hours and then went to bed. woke up in the morning, and i'm streaky everywhere. EVERYWHERE. and it also tells you to thoroughly wash your hands after applying. of course for good reason, so i did. all that did was take off the tan from the top on my hands, not even my palms. my hands look so orange. never again. this is so awful.

                    I was originally looking for tanning oil, but I had a coupon for this product and decided to give it a try. I was going on vacation in Europe and was hoping to get a natural tan in the Mediterranean sun. Unfortunately it was overcast most days, so I was glad to have this product to give me the tan I wanted. This product gave a nice bronze look and wasn't orange (which was my biggest fear). Also, there is a nice subtle glitter that gives a nice shimmer when you are in direct sunlight which is amazing.

                        Hi Sandy! Try applying a thin layer of lotion to the dark spot before applying the tanner. This should prevent the tanner from clinging to the dark spot. We hope this helps!

                        A:

                        Hi Cailey! All self-tanners contain an ingredient called dihydroxyacetone (DHA), which works with your own skin's surface proteins to deepen its color. Just like a regular suntan, the color fades gradually as your skin naturally exfoliates the dead surface skin. The salt, sand and sea will all work like exfoliators to pull off some of the tan created by your self tanner, but at the same time you will probably be getting a bit of a natural tan. We don't expect you to see any uneven results from a day at the beach.

                        Hi Amsmith2! After 6-8 hours you may shower as you normally do. You can easily prolong the life of your fake tan for up to two weeks by making sure your skin is always moisturized, and using a cleanser that does not contain retinols or salicylic acid.

You can use this self tanner daily until you have achieved the desired level of tan, and then apply 1-2 times a week to maintain the tan. It instantly gives you a beautiful bronzed color with a hint of shimmer.

                        Hi Linda! We're sorry to hear about your experience with our Sublime Bronze Tinted Self Tanning Lotion. Our self tanning products do not have any type of dye in them so the color will be able to wash out. You can try to use any moisturizer, let it sit on your hands for about 15-20 minutes, then rinse under lukewarm water. Use a washcloth to dry you hands. We hope this helps!
