Product Review: L'Oreal Sublime Bronze

Total Beauty asked me recently to review L'Oreal Sublime Bronze Any Angle Self-Tanning Spray, and I was happy to do it, only I was sure that I had already talked about it on this blog. I'm shocked to find out that I haven't, only a quick mention of the lotion formulation last year.

This spray has been my go-to tanning product for quite some time. I use this spray in combination with the lotion for one reason only: the any-angle spray ability. When L'Oreal says that it can spray from any angle, they mean it. I am able to get excellent matching coverage on my back from this spray, even when I use the lotion everywhere else.

Another reason why this product is always in my cabinet is the price point. At $9.99 a bottle, it is an excellent value.

While I know others say they see results quickly, I never have. I usually exfoliate and tan the night before and wake up the next morning with tan expectations. I've never been disappointed with Sublime Bronze - I have a nice brown color, never an orange oompa-loompa glow. Usually I use this product about two to three times a week, depending on how often I exfoliate. Remember that the more you exfoliate, the more you take off your self-tanner.

Now, about that smell. I know, most self-tanning products do have a pretty horrific smell. Sublime Bronze isn't that bad, although there is a noticeable smell. On me, I tend to notice it more as the color develops, which is another reason I do it the night before, because then I can wake up and take a quick shower to get rid of any lingering smell.

This will continue to be one of my go-to tanners.

Here are a few other options from the L'Oreal Sublime Bronze tanning family.
