Comments about L'Oréal Sublime Bronze Self Tanning Gelee:

I went on a hunt to find this product again after stumbling across it last summer. I finally found it at Ulta. I have found that as long as you put it on after a shower and exfoliate then the color will be perfect. You definitely have to exfoliate in between layers of the product to make sure that your pores don't clog. But it is by far the best sunless tanner I have found. It lasts about a week with two coats and looks natural. It does tend to fade unevenly but I think that has more to do with my inconsistent exfoliating.

        This goes on like a sun tan oil but doesn't stay greasy. It's easier to apply than the foam type of sunless tanner.

        Do not buy!!!

        Comments about L'Oréal Sublime Bronze Self Tanning Gelee:

        I bought this just for fun just to see what would happen since i've never used a fake tanner before. I showered, exfoliated, and used moisturizer after shaving before using this. I used a tanning mitt and a makeup brush for application. Needless to say, this stuff makes certain areas darker than the other and is extremely streaky. It will start to flake off after a shower within 24-48 hours of original application. Not to mention the smell the day after using it is horrific. Price point is great, but you certainly get what you pay for!

          Comments about L'Oréal Sublime Bronze Self Tanning Gelee:

          I apply this every other day. When I buy the "deep" color I can apply it every three days. I like to always have a good base tan color so I apply probably more than others would. I have used this product for 12+ years. It's colorless so I never have brown clothes or sheets. It dries quickly. They also have a spray form of this and I use that on my backside. The tan is a pretty golden brown-Never orange. I use it on my face and with the vitamins in it I feel like it makes my complexion even better and no need for moisturizer. I will wash my hands three times after applying. I then dampen the corner of a wet washcloth and wipe my eyebrows, corner of nose, mouth, and dab the following areas: elbows, wrists, knuckles, knees ankles and toes. Perfect every time!

            Have also used their other tanning bronzer. I like this one just because it doesn't have all the sparkles to it. It is very easy to use and as long as you rub it in evenly, it creates a very natural color that lasts for several days.

            Not bad and the price is right. More bronze would be better.

              The price is right. Still looking for a self tanner that gives a more bronze tone. This color is better then others I've tried in a similar price range. I liked Estée Lauder best, however they discontinued the gel.

              I wouldn't recommend. Made me extremely blotchy and for the price, I could just go and get a professional spray tan instead.

              Comments about L'Oréal Sublime Bronze Self Tanning Gelee:

              I have been using Clinique's self tanner for years. Decided to try something less expensive. This self tanner works great, just be sure to apply it evenly & massage it into your skin. The first time I applied it in the morning, waited 4 hours then saw that it wasn't dark enough so I applied more. About 2 hours later, my legs looked great, natural tan, not too dark. It only smells weird when you first apply it. Tan lasted almost a week; the Clinique one faded after about 2 days.
