L'Oreal Sublime Bronze Self-Tanning Spray
Advantages: Easy to apply, reduced fake tan smell
Disadvantages: None so far!
It's time to try out a little bit of fake tan, I'm going for sun kissed not orange. I don't really do fake tan, it's too much hassle and you normally only get your skin out in Summer and by then its a little bit tanned anyway. But I have a Ball to attend on Fri night and it's winter so I am whiter than Daz. I need a little bronze, but nothing that will rub off on my dress on the night. I need a fake tan that I can gradually build up over the week.
Last year I had a disaster. I saw Ambre Solaire No Streaks Self Tan Body Wipes. Perfect I thought. Wipe them over my arms and I'll be good to go. So the night before the ball (I know rookie mistake) I wiped myself real nice with those wipes. I woke up the next morning and I looked like a brown and white zebra.
Not a good look especially not for your works annual Ball. There was nothing for it, too late to do anything about it I had to go with it. At lunch time I had to go and buy more wipes and wipe over the bits that were still white. The end result was not as stripy but way too tanned!
I have learned my lesson this year, so on Saturday I went searching for a self tan that would not leave me looking like a brown zebra.
In Boots on Saturday I found this product by L'oreal. My bottle is a little different from the picture. I think it must be a newer bottle. Mine has a wide spray head so you just spray it on and don't need to rub in. You can use it on your legs as it still sprays if you have the bottle turned upside down. It's really easy to apply, just hold from 40cm away from the area and spray. If your skin feels wet, you are too close, so move back!
This morning was my second application of the product and already I can see a change in colour on my skin, nothing drastic yet, but definitely "Sun Kissed!". Way better than Zebra. As the tan developed there was a little bit of the "fake tan smell" but not overly so. Better than others I have tried anyway.
I bought this from Boots in a set with an exfoliator. This retails for £19.99 or the bottle on its own (150ml) is £15.99.
Summary: Great for a little tan top up!
