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

I haven't tried it on my face, and have only used it on my legs, but it works great. I prefer the "Deep Natural Tan" shade. The "Medium Natural Tan" shade was too light for me. Apply every day for the darkest tan, or every-other day for a medium tan. I apply lotion first, then the tanner, and make sure to smooth it in very thoroughly. Then I have no problems with streaking or uneven color. Not my favorite scent - it has kind of a men's shaving lotion fragrance, but it does dissipate after a couple hours.

    Have used this product for several years. As with any tanner, make sure to exfoliate first. Also, take the time to rub into skin until fully absorbed. Super affordable and lasts about 5 days.

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

    Have used Neutrogena mousse instant tanner for years. This product is easier to use and does just as good of a job, though it's pricier. Not sure if the product is uneven as it's applied or if it fades unevenly but I've used it on my legs three times and the color that's there now looks a little splotchy. I'll cover it up easily with another application.

    Recommended by a co worker, her tan looked great so I thought I would try it. Not crazy about the lingering smell or the sparkles. The color was pretty good and lasted about a week with only one additional ap. Bu one get one 50% off was attractive also.

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

        I have been using this self-tanner now since Loreal first came out with it. I have been a HUGE self tanner for years. I have tried all the expensive ones out there and still kept coming back to this one. I believe this gives a very natural looking tan and I'm not understanding some of the comments that are saying it "gave an orange color"-- I am extremely fair skin and I use the deep shade and it has never turned orange. Yes, it's not the best smelling but the bottom line is that it WORKS effectively to give you that "I've been laying on the beach in Hawaii for a past week" look. I also highly recommend a good moisturizer to extend the color.

        AWFUL

              This was absolutely AWFUL! I'm normal pretty pale, and I bought the Meduim-Natural shade because that's all my store had. I put it on after following all directions, and waited about an hour to put on clothing. I slept in it overnight, and I woke up to streaks and splotches EVERYWHERE. I tried washing it off, and even used a scrub, and scrubbed to where my
              Legs were bleeding, and the color spots are STILL HERE. so now it's summer and I'm embarrassed to show my splotchy legs. Absolutely horrible and after trying for 45 minutes with no luck, I still can not get it off. Absolutely not worth it

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

              I have used so many expensive self tanners. This product is by far my favorite and the price is awesome. If you want a quick tan for an event or just for the day, get the light to medium shade. If you want a tan that will last for a few days, get the deep shade. I use the deep shade every other day. The smell is kind of stinky so I use it at night. I make sure to really exfoliate my face and body and dry off COMPLETELY. Then I use a moisturizer on my hands, feet, elbows, and knees then pat with a towel. Then I put a light amount of the tanning lotion all over me and I make sure to rub in completely. It is tinted so you can tell where you missed. After that, I wash my hands really good and get in between my fingers. Then I apply a little of the tanning lotion on a cotton ball and then put it on the tops of my hands. I let it dry before putting on clothes. Don't wear white clothes at first because it will rub off. You can wear white the next day, though. The tan will build up over a few hours so in the morning I wake up with a nice, even tan and then shower like I normally do. The tan will fade over a couple days so I just use it every other day.

              amazing product, great color!

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

              I was really skeptical about buying this. The common worries of streaks and orange glows keeping me at bay. I read all the good reviews and decided it was worth a try to save money on tanning beds. I followed the directions. Make sure to exfoliate in the shower before applying. When applying, put it on just like a lotion. Don't be scared! Make sure you rub it all in. Wait to put anything on so it can dry on your skin. In a couple hours you can start to really notice color. The glitter isn't bad and neither is the smell. It's fresh and summery. I would recommend this product for sure. Something I'll keep buying because of the natural tan color it gives me (:
