          I've been tanning for years, done spray tans... And i have nice skin which is not sensitive. I used this product 2 days in a row, woke up this morning to shower with my skin burning. I look in the mirror and see a red burn rash on the back of my legs. Looked online and lots of people experience this, due to a chemical FDA. Do not recommend

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

            I've tried many sunless tanning products over the course of 20 years. L'Oreal came out with this product in a gelee product first, which I used religiously until the lotion was developed. The medium shade works well, and can be built up, but for faster results, go straight to the Deep shade. I always apply lotion over the product once it dries as my skin is typically dry. Must keep applying lotion if you want to extend the life of the product as dryness will cause it to fade more quickly and unevenly. Takes about 6 hours to fully develop and the scent is not as off-putting as some others I've tried. You MUST scrub your hands, wrists, and between fingers after applying. In my opinion, the only product better than a professional spray tan.

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

                  I have been using this since at least 2005. It is the best self tanning product on the market. Dries quickly and looks natural. I use it on my body a couple of days a week on my face everyday. It is a great primer! Keeps my make up in place and looks the same at the end of the day. I honestly do not know what I would do without this product. I am 40 years old and I feel like I do not even look my age. I contribute to using this product daily!

                          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.

                          Hi Funky Monkey! Our Sublime Bronze Tinted Self Tanning Lotion will not go away with wash. 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!
