I have been using this self-tanner for many years. I use it pretty much every other time after my shower. That seems to be the best time to apply tanner, when your skin is still moist. It doesn't fully wash off after every shower which is good. I go to the gym several times during the week. So I like to have alittle color year round. I use it on my upper body in the winter and in the summer I apply it to my legs and feet also. I think this is the absolute BEST tanner. I feel I am a expert with this stuff. Lots of my friends alway ask me what I use. I strongly suggest to go with the DEEP color becuse even thought I am on the lighter side, it still just gives a regular tan color for a winter white skin. Not too dark and unnatural looking. This cream is easy to apply because it comes out with a bronzed color so it easy to see where you are too heavy so you can even it out. In the summer when I just get a very light suntan, that is all I need is a tiny base of real sun color and then apply this...It makes me look sooooo dark. So I hardly lay in the sun all summer because I don't need to. Of course I try not because it isn't safe also. I just love this stuff. It is sometimes hard to find the DEEP color, so that is why it easier for me to order it with Drug-Store.com. It is just easy for me than going from store to store looking for my color. I alway have a back-up tube in my closet. Aslo there is no smell with this product even after I work out. When you apply it after your shower ,that is all you need is 10 minutes for it to dry. So I wrap a towel around myself so my underarms and chest dry. I usually apply this at night after I shower., so it really has time to set in and dry.

I have a brownish complexion but prefer a deeper brown skin tone. It didn't really make me look darker it just gave me a glow as that of a bronzing dry oil spray. I don't like the feel of it because it feels too oily and it takes long to dry I hate the shimmer & glitter especially the fact that there's so much of it. The smell is pretty strong at first but in about 60minutes or less it completely fades away, that's a plus because with other tanners you stay with it until you shower it of. I gave it 3stars because it enhances my skin tone nicely not sickly and it was a very easy streak free application. Even though it didn't make me darker I would buy again for the glowing effect. It probably works better on lighter complexions.

Comments about L'Oreal Paris Sublime Self-Tanning Lotion, Deep Natural, 5 fl oz:

Im 52, light olive skin tone. Too much shimmer for someone my age. Probably ok for younger lady. It worked and was easy to apply. I did not get streaking, but it runined my outfit. I even let it dry for hours and it continued to come off on my cloths, days later. Some of it washed out, some cloths are stained permanently. I also bought the towelettes and like them better, they have no sparkle at all.

    LOREAL PARIS Sublime Bronze holds true to what it claims. It gave my legs a natural looking bronze tan. It smells good. I'm very satisfied.

        I've been using this product for years to add color to my legs. It works well (but don't get your legs wet until it dries completely). The color is very natural and you can make it as dark as you want by using more. I use a little less in the fall/winter.

        Comments about L'Oreal Paris Sublime Self-Tanning Lotion, Deep Natural, 5 fl oz:

        Alright so this stuff looked pretty convincing. At the store I was debating about getting this or the banana boat self tanner and I definitely made the wrong decision. I spent a little more on the loreal because I thought they had their stuff together but not with this product. I had been tanning the previous months and just started to hate going tanning and also my stomach and legs were EXTREMELY dark but my arms, shoulders, neck, and face were still pale. So I stopped tanning and applied this to my arms and shoulders.....bad idea. I followed the instructions very well and thought I would get a subtle pretty tan but It just looked like my arms took a trip to visit the oompa loompa factory. The smell was the last thing on my mind, I was trying to get this stuff off! It was SO streaky and looked completely unnatural. It has been 3 days and my splotchy arms look like they are here to stay. So save yourself the misery and do not buy!

          Comments about L'Oreal Paris Sublime Self-Tanning Lotion, Deep Natural, 5 fl oz:

          I just used this self-tanning lotion for the first time last night, and this is the first time I've EVER used self-tanning lotion, so this review is only based on the one and only experience I've had so far using this product.

          I read a ton of reviews on here before using the lotion because I was so nervous about butchering the application process and looking like an orange!

          Overall, the lotion spreads pretty well and is decently easy to see - although you CAN end up with streaks if you don't blend it in really well (make sure you're doing this in good lighting!). I have just a couple little splotchy areas that I've noticed today, but nothing major. Just be sure to BLEND WELL! Otherwise, it looks pretty good!

          One thing I wish more people would have mentioned in their reviews (I only read one review that mentioned this tip) is to WEAR GLOVES ON YOUR HANDS TO APPLY!!! The insides of my hands are a dirty orange color. The bottle says to wash your hands thoroughly after application, which I made sure to do, but they still look absolutely hideous. Hopefully that part of the "tan" will fade quickly! I was pretty pale before using this lotion, so maybe if you are already darker, your hands won't get AS dark, but I'd still recommend just putting gloves on to apply.

          A lot of people said they didn't like the smell, but I thought it was actually pretty neutral. I didn't notice it or mind it at all.

          My husband did comment on the "glitter" right away, but, as other people have mentioned, you can get a bath and apply the lotion at night, then shower the glittery part off in the morning. The glittery sheen might be nice to have, though, in the summer, especially if you're heading out to the beach! :o)

          So far, I am very pleased with this product. I'll continue to use it daily until my tan is where I want it to be, then I'll report back on the results so you all can be fully "in the know" about this product. ;)

            L'Oreal's Deep Self-tan is the best of these products I have tried, and gives you the deepest and most even tan. That said, it smells nasty, like all the others; it stays sticky for hours, though it dries quickly; and be very careful applying it to elbows, fingers and ankles/feet, as it will go really dark. The color lasts a good while, a couple weeks, but forget getting your stomach or face really dark. I have applied it for a couple days to the stomach alone and then done the whole body, and even that doesn't help. But it's great for arms, legs, chest and shoulders, and those are the parts you show most on a day to day basis.

            Comments about L'Oreal Paris Sublime Self-Tanning Lotion, Deep Natural, 5 fl oz:

            I use this product after I exfoliate either in the shower or bath. Sometimes I put it on after my shower before work or after my bath in the evening. If in the evening, I don't wash my hair and then wake up and take a full shower to do away with the sunless tan odor. I primarily use this product in the winter so I only use it on the upper part of my body because that's all that shows.

            The thing I like best about this product is that when you put it on there is a bronzing agent in the lotion so you can determine if it is applied evenly or if there are any streaks. I also like the deep color for my dark skin tone. Other lotions do not really show results.

            The only downside to the product is the smell. This is true with any sunless tan product though. I reccomend taking a bath at night and then a shower in the morning to do away with the smell for the day.

            Comments about L'Oreal Paris Sublime Self-Tanning Lotion, Deep Natural, 5 fl oz:

            Overall, this is one of the better sunless tanners I have found and I mix it in with very high end products. I generally use this on my face and neck.

            The GOOD: not 'gradual', good color, my own mom asks if I'm back to tanning beds. Super easy to put on evenly.

            The BAD: large sparkles while it sets (creepy for work...or walking the dog), yet if you sleep with it, it gets all over your sheets because of the bronzer (washes out). The sunless tanner washes out quickly, but that could be me.
