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

    I've been using this for yrs and I've purchased every self tanner out there. I always go back to this one. For one reason it gives u color immediately with a shimmer so u don't have to wait. Only problem is it will rub off on clothes in humid weather. I just wash them immediately.

    Pretty Good!

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

    I have very pale legs to the point where you can see a lot of my veins. I was disappointed with the first application, my legs were still on the pale side and there was some streaking. But, I continued to build up the tan and made sure I rubbed the lotion as much as I could into my skin to avoid more streaking. After the 3rd application, I was comfortable with the results and can wear a dress.

        Great color, just needs one change

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

        I've been using this product for years as I love the color, but, I'm so tired of the "sparkles" in the lotion. I was excited this year to see on the bottle "new look" hoping that they removed the sparkles, but no. When I build my color I do it during the day with shorts and a t-shirt, it looks silly that my skin is all sparkly like I'm going out for a fancy night on the town and its embarrasing when people notice it. I wish you would take the sparkles out so it just looks like natural skin--PLEASE!

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

        I am extremely happy with this product! I can no longer go into the sun due to allergies. This is the perfect natural glow!! I use a disposable rubber gloves underneath A polyester sock . It helps with no streaking and an even tone, and leaves your hands free from the glow! I suffer from migraines due to smells. From 1-5 the stink is about a 2.5, do not too strong! I will continue to use this product!

            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.

                  Hi Sandra! We recommend waiting 6-8 hours after applying before showering or going in a body of water. This will ensure your tan fully develops.

                  A:

                  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!

                • Brand Expert

                  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!
