Mystic Tan orange

Even with the threat of skin cancer and wrinkles, the desire for a tan is strong

Even with the threat of skin cancer and wrinkles, the desire for a tan is strong... In my opinion a tanned body has an attractive glow. I have to weigh the options - do I go for the tanning bed tan and have that sun kissed look or try to find the right sunless tanner and never quite achieve the same glow.

I have tried a few different sunless tanning products with success. The negatives about the tanning lotions is the application. It takes about half an hour to apply lotion to my body. then I have to sleep in dark colored full pajamas and I smell funny. My boyfriend can't cuddle me or stand the smell either.

I hear more and more about the other bad points with sunless tanner being the parabens and preservatives added to the sunless tanners. The latest desire is for an organic sunless tanner. I have started using FakeBake with no paraben and a small amount of organic preservatives. I am pleased with the results. The original comes in a box with gloves and the lotion has a color guide so you can see where the lotion is applied. FakeBake is about $30 and I purchased from Essentials Day Spa in Vancouver. After sleeping with the lotion, I shower in the morning and most of the color washes off. You are left with a nice brown color, although somewhat subtle. I have very fair skin so I find that it does give me a nice color with a once a week application. I would prefer a darker color tan but I find that applying it more than once a week starts to look more orange and less natural.

I also like the Loreal Sublime sunless tan products, although I stopped using the gelee in favor of the FakeBake product without the parabens. I just noticed a spray gel Loreal Sublime product with no parabens or preservatives listed on the bottle. I think I will be purchasing this product and trying it out.

I have used Mystic Tan and Versa Spa. The first time I used both spray booths, I was left with the shame of horrific orange hands the next morning. The second time in the booth, I was more careful to move my hands away and apply cream to block. Once you have experience in the booth and you move and dry properly you can achieve a nice tan. The overall color on my body I did like and I found it to be darker than applying the lotion myself. I found my skin and body feeling very dehydrated and yucky the morning after. I'm not sure of the ingredients of the tanner but I have a feeling there are some things in there that are not good for me.
