Q: Hi, is there. way to take the tan off?

submitted by Sara - 2 years ago
  • A: Hi Sara, Thanks for reaching out! Exfoliation can help remove a tan. For the best results, a loofah, or washcloth can be used with an exfoliating body scrub to slough off your tan. We hope this information is helpful!

Best Tanning Lotion

Michelle - 1 month ago
This is the best tanning lotion I've used! It's the only one that dries instantly and leaves no residue on your skin. I tried the coconut water foam version of this and I had to shower halfway through the day because I was so sticky, but this one feels like you never put anything on. It is truly transfer resistant (unless you get your skin wet) and it doesn't make me orange. It's super pigmented and develops very quickly. I love the shimmer although it is a lot. I will never buy another tanning lotion!

I purchased this because I was going to swim and wanted some color. I applied three times and the color looked pretty good. Each time, I applied after showering and waited for everything to dry before bed. No problems with transferring to pajamas or bedding. However, one of the days I wore a white bra and there was quite a bit the transferred to the straps and I side of the cups, especially the underboob area where I had some sweating. When it came time to swim, I went in fully bronzed and came out looking like a hot mess. A lot of it had come off in the pool but there were still patches of tanned area. My recommendation is that if you want it for a one time event where you'll be dry and not wearing white (maybe as a wedding guest), it would work fine but I wouldn't use it if I wanted to swim or thought I'd sweat. Also, you'll need to reapply regularly for long term color. Overall, thr smell isn't too bad. Most tanners have thr same kind of smell and I'd say this does as well after the initial perfume-y scent wears off. It also leaves glitter on your skin for that "natural shimmer and glow." I'm 37 and feel I'm about 20 years too old for thr glitter but others might not care about that.

Hi there Rachel! We wish you could see the results you were hoping for with the Sublime Bronze Tinted Self-Tanning Lotion in Medium Natural Tan. All self-tanners use Dihydroxyacetone (DHA) as the key ingredient. It simulates a natural tan with your skin's surface proteins. The DHA reacts with the skin's protein (keratin) to create the “tan”. The tone that these products produce depends on the individual's natural complexion. This color fades as a normal tan would, through exfoliation of the dead skin cells. However, this self tanner also supplies a hint of color with actual pigments that shows where the self tanner is applied to assure even coverage. This pigment layer is temporary and washes off, leaving the DHA created tan which fades gradually.

The only reason I am giving this 4 instead of 5 stars is because it is not very moisturizing. It gives a great glow, nice color and is not sticky or smelly.

I love the color this creates on my skin. My face is darker than my neck area & décolleté and this product is great at leaving a natural darker skin tone on those areas and blends in very well. I wish it came without sparkles though as sparkles seem outdated and cheap looking. I also don't like the products that gradually tan because the color is never right for me so don't want to switch to that. Please make this product without sparkles and try and make the scent a little less strong. It smells like I'm burning incense in my office when I wear it.

I liked the color that this gave me however it left color EVERYWHERE. glitter on my leather seats in the car and my sheets ended up with colored spots as well. I applied very early in the morning (6AM) and bedtime isn’t until 11pm so I was very disappointed. I won’t buy again :(

I love how this goes on smoothly like a lotion. The scent isn’t too bad and the color is just as good as expensive brands. I don’t care for the sparkle but that’s pretty minor. I really like how after I put it on it doesn’t have a super dark streaky indicator so i feel comfortable wearing it to run errands.

Applied the bronzer as per the directions and am extremely unhappy with the results. The product made my skin way too orange! Normally I love L'Oreal products but unfortunately I have to give this one a thumbs down.Also on the following questions there is no selection for grey/silver hair so I chose light blond.

Hockeymom - 9 months ago, Verified purchaser
I like the color of this bronzer, and especially that you can see the tan develop pretty quickly after applying it. It feels sticky at first but dries fast. The scent is strong and perfumy, I wish it was unscented or had a lighter scent. I would not use it on my face because I think it would be too heavy and might cause breakouts. It's good for legs and arms though, for a quick summer glow.

Literally so so sticky, you have such little time to rub it in before it gets sticky and dry and weird and it like would stick together so not exactly clumps but full spots that are hard to rub out. And extremely glittery, like too much. Like a kids toy amount of glitter. The color is fine it looks good where i started running it in but the rest makes me look dirty

Love this! Best bronzer ever. Gives a radiant shimmery glow and is most natural looking in comparison to many I have tried. This has been my go-to for years now. Tips: * Consider using latex/ disposable gloves when applying—easier application and blending capabilities + less mess on your hands, wrists and in between your fingers. * Lasts at least one week if you hydrate your skin regularly in between applications with a quality lotion product.

Would recommend
- 1 year ago
I’ve used this product for 10+ years. I have to admit I like their older formula that was more of a gel. It blended better in my opinion. This is still great though! I shower, shave and exfoliate first. Then apply a light lotion to my hands, feet, bottoms of feet, knees, elbows etc. before and rub it in really well. I then apply the product evenly and make sure to rub it in well. I do not put on my bottoms of feet. I then wash my hands with soap and water but careful to not get my arms/wrist. I let it sit on overnight and shower in the morning. Careful because it can stain sheets and clothes. If I want to be a shade darker I repeat again the next night until I’m happy with results. I have sensitive skin and this doesn’t effect me. I use it on my neck but I do not apply it to my face. If I want my face darker I apply a darker foundation or bronzer.
