Product Review: L'Oreal Sublime Bronze Tanning Towelette ---- HELP!


Ladies - please help me! 
I need suggestions on which sunless tanners work for you. 
I have been pasty for far too long and I need a little color in my life. 

I use to be an avid tanner back in the day
I played volleyball in high school and college so it was necessary that I maintain a nice golden glow since I lived in spandex. 




I loved being tan. 
It's slimming. 
See picture #2. I don't have to wear much makeup - just throw on a little mascara and eye liner because it makes my skin look good. 
My angel kisses come out. 
You get the picture. It's just makes me feel good about myself.


Then I started working at Healing Waters Spa & Cosmetic Clinic and saw first hand what sun damage does. 
Wrinkles, wrinkles, and more wrinkles. 
Saggy skin.
Hyper-pigmented skin.
Skin cancer.  
None one which are flattering or worth it.


Since then - I've tried a few different spray tan places but haven't been fully satisfied. 
If you know me - you know I'm cheap. 
Paying $15-$30 for a tan that lasts maybe a week doesn't cut it for me. 
I would rather buy a lotion and do it at home when it's convenient for me.


So yesterday evening I tried out the L'oreal Sublime Bronze Self-Tanning Towelettes.



You can purchase these 6 single use towelettes at target for $9. 
I thought using a towelette would be easier to handle, there aren't any gloves involved and I wouldn't have to worry about putting on too much or too little.

Conclusion: 
 My upper body looks great but not so much my lower body. 
It said to use sparingly around your elbows, knees and ankles but clearly I didn't follow the rules. 

Don't mind the crusty toes.
 This preggo can hardly bend over these days - so I'm going to get a much needed pedicure with my mom on Friday!

The tricky part about using a towelette is that you don't know where exactly you are applying it. You just rub it on hoping you cover everything. I also slept in short shorts last night so I woke up with discolored/splotchy legs. I'm sure it's because I get super hot in my sleep and probably sweat some areas off. Gross. I also can't stand the smell and neither can CT. Even though I took a shower this morning I could smell myself all day at work. That's the worst! 


So ladies .. help me out please! 
Do you have a sunless tanner that works well for you?
