Do not buy!!!

By Streaky

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.

        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.

        We are snow birds and look very white in the south west when we arrive. This product is a big seller where we go. Not needed when I have my own tan.

        Love the gelee more than lotion or anything else

        By anpBroc

        Comments about L'Oréal Sublime Bronze Self Tanning Gelee:

        Personally I find the lotions can rub off and streak even when you think you are dry. The gelee is perfect!!! Needs to be more available - it always looks natural and never leaves me streaky of rubs off - fades naturally - this is my favorite go to of all time - wish could find the gelee stocked in more stores (usually the lotion is the only option) if you see the gelee - grab it it's amazing

          Comments about L'Oréal Sublime Bronze Self Tanning Gelee:

          I have been using this for years on my face because, for some reason, my face does not tan at all, no matter what I do. I apply it almost every night to a clean face and it give my face just the right amount of color. I also use it my body sometimes, but apply it correctly because it does produce color and could streak if not applied properly. Might not be for everyone on the face, but works great for me.
