Nothing has compared!

This was my one and only tanning product for 10 years before it was discontinued. It didn’t smell. Didn’t streak, I would get dressed almost straight away. Didn’t stain anything. The gel would melt with your body heat and spread so you could apply it quickly and not worry about being soooo precise like every other product that you have to rub endlessly. No one ever believed I had a fake tan until I said it one day and they all went out to buy it. I never ever bothered with any other tan. It wasn’t even question. Since it’s been discontinued, I have bought every brand under the sun and I don’t like any. If they ever bring this back I’m buying a lifetime supply. WHY DO COMPANIES DISCONTINUE MY FAVOURITE PRODUCTS???

WT..Not happy

published

I agree with the other reviewers... this is a great product! Everyone asked if my tan was real or from a bottle and couldn't believe it when I told them it was from a tub and that it was gel, showing them the pic of the product so they got the right one. Like the others, I am also sick of companies discontinuing the products that everyone likes and works great and are good value for money. Now I have to consider whether I spend more for a similar product, not knowing what the outcome will be, online and go through the hassle of, if I don't like it, having to send it back, or just go not bother at all...

Purchased in February 2017 at Chemist Warehouse for $15.00.

Upset this has been discontinued

The best colour results of all tanning products. Beautiful golden colour And no streaks. Skin is left smooth and glowing. So upset that L’Oreal discontinued this product. Nothing else compares and I have spent a lot of money trying to find something that comes close but everything else leaves skin looking dull.

It's the best product for a face tan, why on earth was it discontinued. I'm lost without it. please

published

Bring it back!!!! I need it.....Its the only face tan that works on my skin.... Please bring it back
Why, was this wonderful product discontinued? Makes no sense. It was the best product on the market, I would never buy anything else., I've paid ridiculous prices on eBay just to have it. Please put it back on sale in Australia, I'm lost without it.

Great product, easy to apply, no streaking. Wouldn't use anything else, it also lasts well. At times I've tried other products and always gone back to this. Lovely golden colour!

I loved this fake tan. I have dry, sensitive skin, it goes on smoothly and doesn't dry out. I have been using it for years for dance comps, but L'Oreal are no longer selling it in Australia.

Waste of time and money

Orange and patchy!

I got this after reading so many good reviews about it however when I used it, it made me look orange and left me with patches all over!! Will never use this product again! Didn't have the best smell to it either but you'd expect that being a fake tan.

Made me look orange and patchy

Perfect for the face!

loreal self tanning gel

This product is the best for a natural looking tan. It doesnt come off like a spray tan and dries really quickly. The best. I wish it was a bit cheaper though because you have to put it on everyday xx still worth it. So many compliments and easy to.use.
Dries quickly
Stores are always sold out. supply more

Good

published

After two applications I have my desired colour, and after one shower its still on, just slightly lighter. Its a little greasy to apply, and i had to make sure I washed my hands very well to stop any build up on my hands. But once it dries it you will see results in about five hours. The only downside is the price and the smell.
The colour is quite nice. and the price is not too bad around $20 a bottle.
It does not smell great, like an overdoes on some citris fruit. The bottle is also quite small for what you pay.

Can anyone tell me a good replacement for Loreals Sublime Bronze Self Tanning Smoothing Gel (Face and Body)? As it's discontinued (so disappointing as it's the best I've ever used) I need to find a good alternative but struggling to do so. I've tried so many and wasted cash loads in the process

No not really. Its hard to find a product that doesn't dry your skin and is within the same price line. I have been trying many other products and haven't found anything that is as good.
