    Ladies,

    I have moved to a small town where the pricing for indoor tanning is a wopping $1.25 per minute which I think is plain outrageous!

    My question to you all is has anyone used sunless tanners that work well? Have you tried other things that may work?

    My wedding is in Feb so it is still a ways away but I want to no be whiter then my dress on my big day! LOL

    Thanks so much!

      i have tried SEVERAL sunless tanners over the years and the Coppertone moisture mist is BY FAR my favorite!!!!

      Coppertone Sunless Tanning Moisture Mist Tan Continuous Spray Light/Medium 6 ounces at Hocks.Com

      most of them give off an orangy tint or a terrible smell but this one worked great for me. every skin type is different but i have recomended it to a few people and there hasnt been any bad feedback.

      i usually shave and really scrub the dead skin away before spraying. i use 2 coats and it looks natural. throw on a pair of old panties or old bathing suite and spray away. its like a can of hairspray so if you do it in a bathroom be sure to keep a window open. i usually have my FI spray the back of me.

      good luck!

          That is crazy expensive! I also live in a small town and it isn't that bad. We have a few tanning places though and some places are more than others, but I get 6mins for $1 at my gym. I guess I should almost start that soon so I can get a good base before going down there and frying in the sun. Hope you find something that works well for you.

            i have a small bathroom as well and i didnt have a problem. i just made sure to splash some water ont he walls once i was done. i stood in the tub and opened the small block window and it was okay.

            like any self tanner, you can not shower or exercise for a few hours after spraying yourself. i usually spray and then let it dry for an hour or so and then throw on the second coat. if you see you missed a spot then just spray the next day or if you find a spot that may have dripped (its a clear mist, but it may drip down causing a darker line if not rubbed in) then just scrub in the shower and it comes right off.

              I have used Neutrogena's spray tan mist, and I personally love the stuff!

                I have always had good luck with the slow-build lotion tanners. Jergens makes one. So does Neutrogena. I usually start applying 4-5 days before an event. It's so gradual that if you make a mistake you have time to fix it.

                  I've used Jergens before too, but did you find that it turns your palms orange? It also seemed to get really orange and caked up between my fingers. Hmmm.

                    Tan Airbrush tan in a can by Model Co. It is expensive, but for your wedding would be awesome... I used it and my friend the next day was like "Looks like someone went to the beach all week, I'm jealous",,, everyone thought it was 100% real...

                      Has anyone used any sunless tanners for your face? I want to start but I don't know what kind to get - I tend to break out sometimes so I need to be careful too. Any help??
