Bronzers and self-tanners and I have had a love/hate relationship for years, but if I venture into the “bronze age” I want a self-tanner that’s easy to use, gets the color on my skin, evenly and easily, and lets me get to hard to reach places. L’Oreal Paris Sublime Bronze ProPerfect Airbrush Self-Tanning Mist $9.99 4.2 oz. does this, and more.
This product in a spray can offers a super-fine mist that dries evenly and quickly (color begins to develop in about an hour) and that makes it great when you want to “faux-and-go.” Working with your skin’s amino acids, this “can of tan” comes in a “medium” shade that will look reasonably natural on many skin tones. The 360 degree nozzle makes it really easy to get into the hard to reach places, such as the back of your legs and your elbows. If deeper is better in your opinion, simply re-apply daily until you’re happy with the depth of your “tan.” To maintain the color, reapply 1 – 2 times per week. The price is right, too!
TIP: all self-tanning products work best when you give them a smooth surface to adhere to, so exfoliate before you “go for the faux.”
