Tis the season for exposing my pale, pale bod to sunshine. I do tend to avoid the sun, but I don't necessarily want to look like Powder while doing so.
I've used many a sunless tanner before and just can't get in to them. Jergens especially is bad for me (I turn orange) and it stinks so everyone's go-to just isn't my thang.
So, at the reco of a friend, I picked up a bottle of L'Oreal Sublime Bronze last week at Target.
It is an instant bronzer, meaning you look immediately tan and then the self-tanning lotion part kicks in about an hour later. The instant bronzer definitely helps you see where you have applied none or too heavily, which is a nice feature. There is a bit of a subtle sheen/glitter to it that may not appeal to everyone, but there isn't a noticeable scent, which is a huge plus for me.
I have been mixing it with about 1/2 regular lotion just to tone down the bronze a little, but for those ready to dive right in, I'd use it as is.
L'Oreal claims that once you have achieved your desired tan, you only need to apply 1-2 days a week to maintain. This seems like a lot less maintenance than the gradual tan lotions out there.
Anyone else try Sublime Bronze?
