With summer here, it`s great to get some color in, especially if you do not tan as easily such as myself. I`m often lazy to apply self-tanner because those are a process and require a few days for you to achieve the color you desire. That`s why I am loving the <strong>L`Oreal Paris Sublime Bronze One Day Tinted Gel.</strong>
"Sublime Bronze One Day instant tanning gel delivers a sheer tint of bronze color that lasts up to one day. This unique quick-drying formulation with natural caramel colorant and golden pearls gives skin a natural-looking sun-kissed glow. The no-mistakes formula washes away with soap and water."
- Instant radiance & sun-kissed glow
- Smooth, streak-free, even-looking skin tone
- Tan level builds with additional applications
- Long-lasting hydration for smooth feel
You can purchase this product at various drugstores such as CVS, Rite-Aid, Walgreens and stores such as Walmart, Target, and Ulta at a retail price of around $9. You get 6.7 fl oz (200 mL) of product.
The product is in a bronzed-brown plastic bottle with a twist-off lid that is attached to a pump. I love this because it makes the application process less messy. The pump also has an open/locking mechanism so product will not accidentally dispense out if you choose to throw it in your bag when you travel. Awesome packaging in general!
I have tried a good amount of self-tanners and so far, this is probably the product I have loved using the most. First off, I love the packaging. The pump with the open/lock mechanism makes it so incredibly easy to dispense the product and avoid any accidental spilling. The second thing that I love about this product is that it is an instant gratification, unlike gradual self-tanners that require you to continually apply the product over the span of several days. In one day, you can achieve the color that you might achieve in about 3-5 days. The third that I really love about this product is that since this is a gel product, it is really easy to rub the product and blend it into your skin. It dries quickly so you avoid the mess of accidentally staining your clothes. Also, since this is product is tinted, you see exactly where you have already applied the product so that you do not miss a spot. The most important thing about this product that I really love is the shade of color that you achieve. Aside from getting a nonstreaky finish if you blend it well (I know from my picture it looks streaky in certain spots, but I was in a hurry and did not blend it in all that great + I didn`t exfoliate prior), the color that you get is actually a bronzey-brown color; it doesn`t come off as an orangey-tan at all! You can tell when I have the product in my hand that the gel has this brown-reddish-greenish tinge to it rather than orange-brown. I really like the golden shimmers in this because it gives it such a healthy, glowy finish.
As for the scent, it has the SLIGHTEST scent of self-tanner, but it has this sweet smell to it that I think is really pleasant. As for an application, I usually apply one coat first and blend it in really well and then let it dry. After letting it dry, I will then apply a second coat and after that, I have achieved the level of color that I desire for my legs!
My only complaint for this product is that it stains the palms of your hands REALLY bad. It`s also really hard to get it off and I suggest that the sooner you get it off, the better. You might find that you have to wash it several times just to get the color off of your palm. I also use a scrub (such as St. Ives Apricot Scrub or a sugar scrub) and I find that this really helps to get the remaining color off.
<strong>OVERALL, I rate the L`Oreal Paris Sublime Bronze One Day Tinted Gel an A.</strong>
I absolutely love this product because of its packaging and the instant color that it gives me. The color resembles a natural bronzey-tan that you would achieve rather than a fake orange-looking tan. This product does indeed last on my legs for the remainder of the day after I apply it yet washes off easily in the shower with soap and water. I will definitely repurchase and highly recommend it!
