Review: L'Oreal Sublime Bronze Clear Self-Tanning Gel for Body, Medium Natural Tan

L'Oreal Sublime Bronze Clear Self-Tanning Gel for Body, Medium Natural Tan
Stars: 4/5
Price: $15 at Shoppers Drug Mart

I absolutely LOVE the colour this tanning gel gives me! With that said, this product is not without its pros and cons. For this review, it's easier to list them as such:


- The colour; it made me look naturally tanned - after the first use!
- The price
- The smell wasn't too strong
- Little to no streaks
- Dries quickly


- The label says not to use it on your face (I did anyway and I was fine)
- When it starts to wear off, it looks terrible. This has to be my biggest gripe with this product. I noticed it wearing off from my hands before I noticed it coming off anywhere else (after all, I do wash my hands a lot). When it starts to come off, it comes off in splotches. Almost as if I had gotten a large amount of awkward looking freckles. That or some man-eating disease. Either way, it was not a good look. I spent the next few days (since that's how it long it took to come off completely; I suggest exfoliating to get it off faster) hiding my hands from people. Fortunately, it didn't do that to my face, but it did everywhere else (including my legs).

Overall, I really like the results the L'Oreal Sublime Bronze Self-Tanning Gel gives me. Here's my before and after picture (the after picture is the result of using it for three-days in a row, although I noticed a difference right away):

Quite the difference, right? Oh, and if you're wondering where my "after" picture was taken; that was in Las Vegas at the CSI Experience. Vegas was a blast! The CSI Experience was fun too, but my boyfriend and I both agreed that they made it a bit too easy to solve the "crime".

If you've tried this product (or even been to Vegas!) let me know what you thought of it! I'd love to know how well it worked - or didn't work - for others.

Note: I sprayed this into my palms first and then used my hands to rub it into my skin. I washed my hands frequently throughout this process so they wouldn't turn orange!


  1. You know what's awesome? Being Asian... and naturally tan :)

  2. I've been reading reviews trying to decide which tanner to purchase.... thank u for helping me make my final decision. =)
