sunless tanning

I gave up tanning.
tanning in the tanning bed and by the sun
no more for me.

I'm saying it's all because
I don't want skin cancer
but my husband says I should stop lying
and admit it's because I don't want wrinkles.
so it's a little of BOTH, what can I say?

I've tried a few sunless tanning routes.

the 1st was from Sun Systems:

and I didn't really like it...and it
smells strong!
but it has lots of good reviews on Amazon
so I gave it a try.

The one I'm using now is St. Tropez bronzing mousse
Sephora's best selling self tanner.
one of their best selling overall items...
and it's good, not bad at all but
not perfect.
and I'm looking for perfect.

I've also been getting spray tans
and now they say they can kill you too!
the place I go to uses a Versaspa machine.
this machine is pretty good
the only problem is around the feet and hands
it's always splotchy and I'm never sure
if I'm supposed to rub it in or wipe it or pat it afterwards.
it's a little stinky, too.

I've also gotten a few of custom airbrush tans
and they are the best but take longer to get done
and you have to get all (or mostly) naked in front of someone....
it's not the most convenient tan.

I think I'm going to go to Nordstrom and
get the Xen Tan kit they have there.
this stuff is pricey but maybe it will be PERFECT?
we'll see.

How do you get tan?

  1. Have you tried Tan Towels? They sell them at Ulta and one towel would work on your entire body. Start on your face, then arms, then legs, then the rest of your body. They work really, really well, don't have a strong/yucky smell, and you can use a coupon. ;)
