They do everything and these days you don't go orange, just don't pick a colour that is way too dark for you. They will help you decide anyway but it is well worth it. Only lasts up to 2 weeks but it slowly fades so you don't get blotches of skin with colour & blotches without like we use to. So much better than sun tanning & these days can barely tell the difference. Not too expensive, I think between $20 & $50 depending where you go. Definitely covers up imperfections & somehow makes you look thinner too. Just can get expensive if you do it all the time like every 2 weeks, great for parties and functions.

I had one on FRIDAY!!! woooo!!
If i could post pictures I would... I am prob going to have friends email me pics from the weekend so I can forward them on but I got sooo many compliments I am going to get another one THIS Friday! hahaha...
I have never had one before and found it a little incy bit confronting standing there in my undies (no bra) but after the initial awkward boobs out bit I was fine haah and the TAN is well worth it! Couldnt recommend it enough!!
I am still pretty brown - trying to exfoliate and moisturise though so I can get one again on Friday :D

Hey Court. How much did yours cost? Sounds like it turned out nicely.

Yeah it is usually very dark when you leave & you have to be careful for the night... they tell you not to wear bra or undies (if you went all over) under your pjs to bed or shower till the next day. It is still settling in and washes off the next day.

They normally do a light spray over your face but normally your face is lighter than your body naturally anyway so it looks right. Very important to exfoliate well before you go so that it takes to your skin better, obviously if you have dry spots the colour will take to those areas a lot more.

They have seen it all before so it is ok. Have you seen the ones like on the movie bridewars where you go into the little booth & the machine does it evenly everywhere and no-one sees you... that would be great... then you could do all over without feeling embarrassed.

If you are hesitant just give it a go, it will wear off in a couple of weeks anyway and if something happens (I'm sure that it won't) you can wear long pants or something to cover it until it fades. Lemon juice helps fade areas that are too dark too. Most people love it & it is so much healthier than laying out in the sun.

only cost me $19!! she had a special on so I booked a few in advance :D I am getting another one on Friday night! woo! I think it is usually $30
Yup with my one it was an 8 hour tan so left in a singlet no bra and some shorts, no undies and it developed over the night the next morning I was BLACK! woo! Then showered and it looked much better :D
I have had a BOOTH one done too - it was good but nowhere near as good coverage as getting the proper one and it cost $35 - i wouldnt recommend the booths i think nothing beats having someone put it directly on you as they can see where they missed!!

Hi everyone,

Just another quick little tip if you are going for a spray tan......... dont use spray deoderant before you get it done as it will mix when the tan goes on and your skin sort of turns a greenish colour :shock: You dont realise it but when you spray the deoderant it ends up in all sorts of places on your body even if you just try to direct it under your arms. I hope this helps! Stick to using a roll on on the day or go without if you can handle it....

would roll on make you go green too or should I just not risk it?

I have worn both and neither seemed to affect the tan in a green way... I have spray deo on today and Im going for a tan at 5pm...maybe if you put it on right before it isnt a good idea?
