L'Oreal Sublime Bronze Self Tanner Review

I'm a sucker for buying different self-tanners although I usually try and stay away from drugstore self-tanners because they tend to be orange-y and streaky, leaving me looking like I have a skin disease. *note: I have had the same experience with some high-end brands as well! I'd heard lots of good things about L'Oreal Sublime Bronze Self Tanner and decided to try it. I am so impressed with how easy is is to apply: you can see the gel go on as it is already a bronze-y color. After a couple hours I had a very even tan that looked more like I had been out in the sun {brown} rather than slathering myself with a self-tanner {orange}. It has been 3 days since I've applied the tanner and it still looks great with no splotchy-ness. One downside: I got a really bad breakout on my chin, which could be attributed to something else (I'm thinking maybe constant diet coke consumption if not the self-tanner). I normally have clear skin and rarely break out. My word of advice to anyone who tries it is not to use it on your face just in case.
What is your favorite self tanner? Do you usually apply it to your face?


  1. I love this self-tanner and it's the one I currently use.

  2. fresh glow is my favorite brand and my favorite way to warm up my face. great post.


    hope you stop by and say hello. x

  3. I love this self tanner. I have been using it for months and its way better then some of the more expensive brands. I only use it on my face sometimes because I have sensitive skin. I think it works great though...I really get a good color and not orange. The only problem I have is around my feet sometimes it will be uneven. I have used the medium and the deep shades and you can definatly tell a difference between the two. xx :)

  4. Thanks for sharing! I love Fake Bake and St. Tropez self tanners.

  5. I haven't tried this self tanner yet, I'll need to give it a try now :)
    I love Victoria Secret's Beach sexy instant self tanner with tint. I haven't used it on my face because I've sensitive skin (I usually just use a darker makeup). I would definitely recommend VS's self tanner for body :).
