Tan in a Can

This week, I'm coming full circle and trying the L'Oreal Paris Sublime Bronze ProPerfect Salon Airbrush Self-Tanning Mist. My first post consisted of my attempt at spray tanning which didn't go over so well. I'm hoping this at self-tanning airbrush bronzer will do the trick.

I was at Shoppers Drug Mart last week and stumbled upon this tanning solution by complete accident. I thought I'd try it out...one of these sunless tanning products have to work eventually...right?

The product promises a "gorgeous salon perfect tan at home" and a "fresh new citrus scent" which couldn't be further from the truth. Using this product reminded me of my spray tanning experience at the tanning salon, which brought back terrible memories of transforming into an Oompa Loopma for a week. It smells really awful, which in turn makes my hair smell awful. I guess they still have some work to do on that "fresh citrus scent."

The instructions say to spray the Sublime Bronze on your body daily for about a week, at which point you should have a nice sunless tan. In order to maintain this tan, spray yourself every few days. I started using Sublime Bronze last Wednesday and guess what? I'm still as pale as ever.

I'm going to say Drop it. The can only contains 150mL for about ten bucks, so if continual use is the key, you're going to be spending a ton of money on a tan in a can.

  1. Katie once again you have saved me money. Thanks! I'm still on the hunt for the perfect, safe tan. So I hope you are too!

  2. Seeing that I'm extremely pale, I believe that there is no such thing as a safe, good looking tan. I've lost all hope.

  3. Katie, I am glad you tested this product. I am always looking for an easy and cheap way to safely get a tan. I have tried many of the lotions on the market, but not the sprays. After reading this post I think I will pass on the sprays and keep searching. Thanks!

  4. I haven't found an effective self-tanner either. I'm not sure there is a natural looking "canned" solution out there. Thanks for your feedback on this one, I’ll be sure to avoid it.

  5. I used a self-tanner a few years ago and immediately gave up on them. I have friends that looked fine after they used certain ones, but I just feel like they turn me orange and most of them definetly smell funky.

  7. For some reason, I would rather be pale then spray this on my body. I would for sure mess it up and make it the most ugly tan ever!
