It's that time of year for me to start my sunless tanning :) I was excited because Sun Tan City is running a special this weekend. Sunless tanning is 9.99. I went this am to get mine done and may even try to go back tommorrow. I like to go use the spray booths to get a good even base and then use bottle tanners to keep it up. Once I get my base down I go every 2 - 3 weeks to the spray booths. Sun Tan City uses the Versa Spray and I have liked it much better than mystic.
For the bottle tanning I use:
Banana Boat: Summer Color Self Tanning Lotion in Deep Dark Tan (not the one pictured below) 7.50
I really like this formula a lot and I like how it applies. You can see where it goes and it absorbs really quickly. I haven't noticed that it comes off on my clothes. It does have the sunless smell but not as strong as other kinds I have used. Once I get my spray booth base I use this about 2 -3 times per week in between sessions to keep my color looking good. I like the deep dark because you can keep it light or use it more often to get much darker. With some lotions I have used I never get very dark.
The one I really want to try is teh Xen Tan. I wished I had used my ulta point rewards for this one instead of the curling iron :( Any thoughts on it as a sunless tanning product? The reviews on Ulta were pretty good.
