    Pretty good and Sparkly

    I recently tried L'Oreal's Sublime Bronze Luminous Bronze Self-Tanning lotion. I was happily surprised to find that it didn't have the same awful scent as most self-tanners. I used a small amount and was surprised to find it so sparkly. It contains specks of glittery powder. The good about the sparkle: - you can see where it is applied - It is fancy and people will notice you The bad about morehe sparkle: - glitter can get on your sheets if you don't shower before bed - the glitter can be a little "overdone" for a casual event Sublime Bronze Luminous Bronze lotion went on smoothly and did not stain my hands (I washed my hands shortly after use). I liked the effect it gave my legs and did not notice it staining my clothing. I was very pleased and will most likely purchase some more when mine runs out. CVS always has great sales on L'Oreal products so it is very affordable for most beauty fanatics.

    FAUX GLOW I love using self tanners to get myself a beautiful tan. It is the safest way to tan especially with all the BAD news that just came out over tanning beds. I recently tested L'Oreal Sublime Bronze Luminous Self Tanning Lotion and for the most part I like this product but as with all self tanners there are a few pesky issues. THE BOTTOM LINE ON L'OREAL SUBLIME BRONZE This self tanner more a fresh cantaloupe and pineapple scent. It wasn't until about an hour later that I detected a VERY FAINT "self tanner" smell from this lotion. In all honesty, the "self tanner" smell disappeared a little while later, so it's not really a big deal and it is FAR less than most self tanners! One of the things that I loved about this self tanner is that it instantly gives you a caramel kiss of golden color (not that horrible "orangy" color) that gradually develops into a "believable" tan. I applied the self tanner daily for 4 days until I achieved my desired color then I reapplied it twice a week to maintain my tan. I also applied this self tanner to my face and I had no streaks, "oragnyness" (I don't think this is a real word!) or pimples and with the power of Vitamin E my skin was soft. Lastly, I love how fast this self tanner dries. BRIT'S NIT PICKS I found that the L'Oreal Luminous Bronzer has way too much sparkle for me, I looked like a Disco Ball Diva. However, a lot of the sparkle did wear off by the next day. This product claims that it is streak free. I don't know that I would say that. I am pretty good at applying self tanner and I noticed that I had a few "uneven" areas on my legs, nothing major but they were still there. All that said, I would definitely purchase this product for myself. I liked the natural color I was able to achieve and I love the fact that this product does not have that strong "self tanner" smell. Thanks B. from britneysbeautyblog

    Not in love...

    This product was pretty disappointing for me. It did have some positives like having an immediate tint and some very glamorous shimmer/sparkle. It dried in 10 minutes or less and didn't stain my clothes. But, I was still disappointed by the color and especially by the formula. No doubt, this is a very deep tan and probably too intense for the fair skinned. It is definitely bronze and not a more glow. My main complaint is with the formula. This product resulted in a streaky mess in my hands. I don't know why this would be as I followed all the usual self tanning guidelines (exfoliate, use on dry skin, etc.). I rubbed and rubbed and rubbed and still could not get it to look uniform. Finally, I gave up in frustration, knowing that I would be looking at streaky legs for the next week, which I was. To add insult to injury, the scent was the usual toxic self tanner scent and not pleasing in any way. Clearly other reviewers had success with it, but in my experience, it was pretty disappointing.

    Bronzing not for me!

    L'Oreal Paris Body Expertise: Sublime Bronze Luminous Bronzer Self Tanning Lotion I tested the product where I could. It seemed to work well, but I am not in need of a tan. My body is bronzed naturally. :-) I loved the fresh scent of the bronzer. I did notice that it contains an Alpha Hydroxy Acid, so if wearing, be sure to wear a sunscreen to prevent sunburn. A bronzer is not something that I morell continue to use on myself, but I will definitely use it on my clients when the opportunity presents itself.

    Great bronzer, but I wish it wasn't so sprakly!

    L'Oreal Sublime Bronze Luminous Bronzer Self-Tanning Lotion is a decent self-tanner. You need to make sure you rub it in thoroughly, otherwise it will dry streaky. It leaves a deep tan shade not too orangey which is great. But on the downside, it's full of shimmery sparkles. I kind of felt like a disco ball. Some people might be looking for sparkle, and if so, this is the bronzer for you. If it morewasn't for the disco ball affect, I'd be a big fan of this stuff. It's a great, basic, drugstore self-tanner. It's very easy to use and effective.
