I use the L'oriel bronzer. I'm also an avid lotion user and have never had a problem with doing both. Just be sure to leave enough time between applying the bronzer and your lotions, so that it has time to dry and set. When you apply it, it bronzes slowly within an hour or two of it drying. And don't forget to wash your hands with soap as soon as you're done putting it on or your hands will be horribly stained.
