L'Oreal - Sublime Bronze Luminous Bronzer Self-tanning Lotion

As some of you know, I've been looking for a self-tanner to try out, because I'm gifted with a ghostly pale skin color :(...St. Tropez is at the top of my list, however it's pretty pricey and I wanted to give some drugstore brands a chance before I spent that kind of money! Boy, am I glad I waited! I found this L'Oreal Sublime Bronzer and decide to give it a go! Its incredible guys! Seriously, I've used it twice and have got amazing results. So lets break it down for you! Speed: I saw some small results immediately. It does say "instant action" on the bottle but it wasn't like how a mousse would act. I would say its a mixture of a gradual lotion and an immediate mousse. Streaks: I do have some streaks on my wrists and around my hands, but its from my rubbing up against things before I should have (I'm impatient like that). Consistency: It does say lotion, but the consistency resembles more of a gel to me. I also mixed it with some moisturizer because I read this stuff can be quite sticky. Doing that made ALL the difference. It blended so well into my skin using a moisturizer.  Color: Its not orange at all and gives me a gorgeous and healthy looking glow. Smell: The smell is actually not too bad, it smells like a normal tanning lotion but less potent. Shimmer: The one downfall that some people might hate, but I don't mind, is the very heavy amount of shimmer in the lotion. When I put it on my legs it was like I had bathed in glitter. But I did apply it at night before bed and in the morning most all the glitter was off!! Price: $10.00!!!!! Overall I think this product is amazing, and I will no doubt be purchasing it again. Let me know what you all think!! Also, if you have found any other drugstore self-tanners like this one let me know!! 
xoxo, Care

  14. Tanning salons provide a good opportunity for the chance to color all year long. Selecting a tanning hair and facial salon is often a very little unique of buying a beauty salon or even a different sort of organization where you have function performed because you must make sure the site you pick is actually with the maximum quality to guarantee your skin layer is actually dealt with the most effective way feasible.
