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

      I have fair, sensitive, and sometimes dry skin. I have used many, many different brands and types sunlessunless tanners in search of one that I absolutely loved. I thought I was out of luck until I saw this on a clearance shelf. I quickly read some reviews to make sure it wasn't a total waste of time. After going home and testing it out I was absolutely stunned with the results! A little bit of this goes a long way.
      It has kind of an oily feel go it which threw me off at first, but once it dried it didn't leave an oily residue left over, and made my skin very soft. I've read a lot reviews on the product complaining about the fragrance of it. I do not agree with them whatsoever...there are some truly terrible smelling sunless tanners out there.
      I'm a rather impatient gal, so the application process (no gloves, no mitts, no brown stains all over everything you own). I think that the greatest part of this product is that it works really well for your face. No more buying extra kinds for your face!

      I've been doing this for years so I thought I'd share my steps and tips/tricks of accomplishing at sunkissed glow..without the oompa loompa look.

      1.Shower go get your skin clean and deeply exfoliate your entire body (I prefer the gloves to scrubs).

      2.After you dry off completely apply a small amount of lotion into dry areas of your skin (I usually start at my feet and tan up so I'll rub lotion into my feet/ankles >> knees >> elbows >> face).

      3.Let the lotion set in for a minute or two and now you're ready to apply the tanning gel.

      4.The gelee spreads very well so I will put only a small amount into my hands. Spread around like you would any lotion, in circular movements. Make sure you have applied a thin even layer all over. The thicmer you put it on, the longer it takes to dry the more likely the tan is to be streaky or uneven.

      5.Wash your hands immediately after application. What I do to get tan feet and hands without them turning bright orange is: after washing hands put a small amount of lotion in your and then a drop of the gelle. Mix it together and it into your hands and feet like you would any lotion. This dilutes the tanner down for less intense color.

      I tried too be as helpful as I could! Enjoy your new sunkissed glow!

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

      Pretty good! I'm happy with this product. I'm very pale, almost the color of milk tbh and decided I wanted a tan this summer so tried this. I've tried a couple other fans in the past but they didn't work. This works fast, lasts days, and is even besides my knees, feet, elbows, etc. just be careful in those areas, I'm still learning how to apply it evenly, less is more in those areas. This Tanner give a deep tan and a really nice glow however I did notice it has a slight orange undertone and smells bad.

          This is a gel that goes on really well, doesn't streak and gives you a really nice tan in just a few applications. Use it weekly to keep it up.

          As with pretty much all of these products it does have a fragrance but it is better than most!

            I am very fair and do not tan however every once in a while I like to add a little warmth to my skin. This bronzing gel is perfection! I've been trying various lotions all with varying degrees of success but nothing measures up to this product. First, it glides over skin, drys within two minutes and color appears within a hour. Second, it last about four days depending on amount of showering/shaving/scrubbing but still washes off hands easily so you don't have orange in your nail beds. This in now my go to bronze solution.

                    This is a great product for my fair skin. I'm not looking to be tan, just slightly less pale. I use it every few days. Nobody really notices that I look "tan". It's more that it helps me look healthier.

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

                        Been using for about 3 years now and keep coming back to it because it blends so well and looks like a natural tan, as I am very fair. It's good for a week or so with 2-3 applications. After that, it will start looking blotchy and uneven with repeated applications. It's better to allow the product to wear off some at this point and then use a good exfoliating scrub and start over.
