      Comments about L'Oréal Body Expertise Sublime Bronze Luminous Bronzer Self-Tanning Lotion:

      I've used this product for many years. It has been improved this year. The smell is pleasant when first applied, but it has a funny smell after it sets into your skin. I usually apply in the evening, and in the morning I wake up with a tan. You don't have to apply everyday. I haven't really used any other tanning product, so I can't compare.

        Comments about L'Oréal Body Expertise Sublime Bronze Luminous Bronzer Self-Tanning Lotion:

        I used the product before they added the "illumination" and normally mixed it with lotion to make sure it didn't streak. This formula seems a little bit milder but still gives fantastic color. Never too harsh or orange but care must be taken to rub it in. Overall a great product and give comparable color to pricey alternatives.

        Love this tanner! Smells decent and with a mitt (got one at Walmart for 4 bucks) it went on streak-free! I'm not crazy about the shimmer, but I usually put it on before bed and shower in the morning so the glitter goes away but the color stays! Great product for the price.

          This product instantly tans your skin! It also leaves your skin with a pleasant summer glow. The only dislike is that it leaves my skin feeling very dry. I apply lotion over the tanning lotion, once it dries. Still, my favorite tanning lotion on the market!

          When this says ...

          Comments about L'Oréal Body Expertise Sublime Bronze Luminous Bronzer Self-Tanning Lotion:

          When this says "luminous," it really means "sparkly." I've used this product once and immediately washed it off once I noticed the shimmer in it. It is not subtle and would only be appropriate for a night dancing in a very dark club. Needless to say, I won't be purchasing or using this product again unless I decide to dress as Snooky for Halloween.

          Works well but here are some tips!

              Comments about L'Oréal Body Expertise Sublime Bronze Luminous Bronzer Self-Tanning Lotion:

              I have been using this product since they changed bottles and added the glitter. The tan you get after one use is awesome! I have a light golden skin with olive undertones, and this turns me at least 2-3 shades darker in one use.

              Although it is good, it is hard to get perfect application. This is how I get the best results:
              - shower and exfoliate body
              - wait at least 30-60 mins to ensure dry body and no steam in bathroom
              - put a lot of moisturizer on trouble spots (elbows, hands, knees, feet)
              - apply bronzer, and get someone to help with your back to avoid streaks!
              - when done DON'T wash hands, simply rub the palms on a wet cloth
              - keep clothes off for as long as possible, or use big baggy clothes
              - 2 hours after (or the next morning if you do it before bed) put on a regular moisturizer to blend any mistakes

              For best results use an hour or two before bed!

              Comments about L'Oréal Body Expertise Sublime Bronze Luminous Bronzer Self-Tanning Lotion:

              It works but do not rely on this product for color alone. Like most self-tanners it has more of an orangey colour. DO NOT USE BEFORE YOU ARE ABOUT TO LEAVE THE HOUSE. Use overnight so in the morning you can have a shower to get rid of the shimmer and use baking soda and water to fix streaks.

              I absolutely love this self tanner, it is my favorite one out there! I traded in my Clinique brand for this and it works so much faster and better. It will give you a natural, even looking tan and smells nice, too! Great quality and value!!!

              Comments about L'Oréal Body Expertise Sublime Bronze Luminous Bronzer Self-Tanning Lotion:

              I bought this product with high hopes of a great looking tan. The first time I tried this product, I was mortified by the streaks. So I decided to try a different approach. After a shower I put on my regular lotion (Jergens Shea butter) first to make sure my skin was not dry especially around knees, ankles, and elbows. I let the lotion absorb and in about 5 minutes I apply the sublime bronze. You must be quick with the application process. I like how you can see where it goes because of its instant glow. A con for some might be the glitter/shimmer flecks in the gel. To me, I find the shimmer gives a nice luminous glow...not trashy. Like another poster said, spray skin with a body spray to cover the tanner smell.
