I follow all the rules. I exfoliate everything. I shave. I exfoliate again. I use a good moisturizer on my dry spots. Make sure my skin is completely dry before applying. All that stuff, every last bit, every single little tip you can cull from every single fashion/beauty magazine there is. And yet every single time, I turn orange. I recently used L'Oreal's Sublime Bronze Medium to Deep self tanning gelee. What a great scent! Color took 5 hours to develop, which I thought was weird. And I didn't turn as brown as I wanted, so the next day I reapplied, like the label indicated I should. In 4 hours I went from a little brown to a lot orange. I also smell very badly now too. Is it just something with my skin that I'm unable to use self tanners or what? And why the horrible smell?
