This tinted self-tanning lotion gives your skin instant color and a rich tan that will develop in a matter of hours. Formulated with Vitamin E and AHA's to give skin a smooth and youthful texture.

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

    I use this at night after I shower and exfoliate. I wake up and shower to get the glitter off of my skin. (Yes, this product will leave "shimmer" on your skin) I will apply this every night for 3-5 days prior to going on vacation or a big event. I use the darker shade. I am very pale/fair skinned naturally. However, after 3-5 days of application I am left with a very, bronzed glow. (No orange color or streaks!) Many of my friends and family were not aware that it was a "fake" tan. Definitely will continue to use!

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

      I'm confused by everyone complaining about the glitter in this product. Are you guys using it before you go places? It takes hours to develop and like all self tanners it has a bit of a smell. I've been using it for years. I put it on before bed, sleep with old blankets. I wake up with a great natural tan. I have olive skin and use the "deep" level. I shower the following morning and the glitter washes off but the tan stays. A tip for blending is to put a layer of regular lotion over it, makes sure you wash your hands and the insides of your wrists immediately after.

                      "Shimmer" is not a synonym for GLITTER! The word GLITTER should be clearly printed on the label. Tans OK, not worth the ridiculous sparkles though

                          The color will fade as a normal tan would, through exfoliation of the dead skin cells.To accelerate the removal of of any self tanner would be by exfoliating.

                          A:

                          Hi Cailey! All self-tanners contain an ingredient called dihydroxyacetone (DHA), which works with your own skin's surface proteins to deepen its color. Just like a regular suntan, the color fades gradually as your skin naturally exfoliates the dead surface skin. The salt, sand and sea will all work like exfoliators to pull off some of the tan created by your self tanner, but at the same time you will probably be getting a bit of a natural tan. We don't expect you to see any uneven results from a day at the beach.

                          Hi Amsmith2! After 6-8 hours you may shower as you normally do. You can easily prolong the life of your fake tan for up to two weeks by making sure your skin is always moisturized, and using a cleanser that does not contain retinols or salicylic acid.

                          Hi Funky Monkey! Our Sublime Bronze Tinted Self Tanning Lotion will not go away with wash. You can use this self tanner daily until you have achieved the desired level of tan, and then apply 1-2 times a week to maintain the tan. It instantly gives you a beautiful bronzed color with a hint of shimmer.
