The Best Of The Best In Self-Tanning Lotions

Posted by Bikini Owner

Finding the perfect sunless tanner is quite the task. I've used several that have made me resemble a pumpkin and some that just make me smell like the beach but provided no color. Having fair skin means the sun and I don't exactly get along. Most trips to the beach require me to wear at least SPF 25 to not leave looking like a tomato and that much SPF doesn't really work for obtaining a bronze glow.

When I first got the L'Oreal Sublime Bronze Tinted Self-Tanning Lotion, I was skeptical. Would this be the lotion that finally helped me get a tan? Or would I be left with another empty bottle and zero tan? Luckily, it was the first option! This sunless tanner gave me a perfect, mocha coloring. It's subtle enough to look like I've spent time in the sun, but not so dark that it looks like I've obviously been trying to tan. The smell is great and I was left with zero streaks after application. 

How It Works

With daily use, the bronzer will help you acieve a healthy glow in about a week. Once you've achieved the level of tan you want then you can use the product 1-2 times a week to maintain your color. 

How To Use

To obtain a streak free, sunless tan you'll want to start with clean, exfoliated skin. After you've showered, apply an oil-free moisturizer to any dry areas on your skin. Next, apply L'Oreal's Sublime Bronze Lotion all over your body. Ensure you use it sparingly around your ankles, knees and elbows to avoid an excessive collection of color since those spots tend to be dryer patches of skin. 

After you've applied the bronzer, wash your hands thoroughly. Be sure to wash between your fingers as well to avoid staining. Let your skin dry completely befor applying make-up or putting on clothing. Once your skin is dry, you're good to go! Your tan will gradually appear over a few hours. 

Bottom Line

This bronzer works! When you first apply it, you'll instantly notice a shimmer and glow to your skin. The quick-dry formula produces a natural looking tan- nothing orange or crazy dark. The subtle smell lotion of the is also an added bonus. It leaves you smelling fresh and not like you've been doused in tanning oil. 

Start using this self-tanning lotion now and you'll have a natural, healthy glow by spring!
