Sun Tan Options!

Wow, what a great weekend to be out in the sun. Unfortunately, we all know the health risk and now that I am over 50, I do not want to encourage any more wrinkles. So, what are we to do if we want to have a nice golden tan. Which, I happen to think makes me look healthier and thinner (big bonus). These are a few of the spray tan options I have tried -

L'Oreal Sublime Bronze Airbrush Tan -

I liked the color and coverage - but honestly there was scent that I didn't care for!

LA Tan (Machine)

I used the machine on the left. Coverage was blotchy and I chocked when it started spraying (my fault, but it was a bit overwhelming). The technician was actually the owner, she gave me lots of helpful tips, but............

Sprayed by a Tan Technician

I liked this the best. She could cover all the "areas" that the machine would miss. She was even able to do some sculpting. (smile) The color was exactly what I wanted and it lasted the longest.

If you have tried something else, please share it! Have a wonderful Tuesday!


  1. Wow, great review. I did try some self-tanning products about ten years ago but as you say, the smell was pretty strong.
    I have been afraid of tanning booths since I saw the Friends episode where Ross does everything wrong and gets the worst tan ever.
    I've given up now and just live with my uneven beige/white color.

    1. That is so funny, I saw the Ross Tanning Episode too! Just hysterical. I felt like him when I started choking at LA Tan. Thank goodness I didn't turn out like he did!

  2. I still have yet to try a spray tan ... just so worried about getting the orangy look! I have seen some good results (and bad) with friends. I use Jergens self tanner and like the results ... and it has just a light scent, not bad at all.
    Thanks for visiting my blog!

    1. Thanks Melissa. I am going to try the Jergens self tanner. It sounds great!
