    Did you buy it from your tanning salon?? Maybe you can return it saying you are not happy with it and get a new one?

      Amanda - Yeah, I did buy it from the salon...a few days ago. I wonder if they would do that for me, I have a feeling they wouldn't though. Worth a shot I guess!

        Worst they can say is no!! lol
        Maybe you could see if anyone you know needs one - sell it to them at discount & then at least you're not out all the $$ (that lotion is super expensive!!)

          What lotion were you using?

          You could try a lotion with a lighter bronzer or none at all. My salon recommends that you bring in one of their spray bottles and spray your palm and wipe down your hands after applying the lotion. They also will wipe your hands and feet if you do a spray tan so it comes out perfectly.

            Kathy, you're lucky that you're figuring all this stuff out NOW and not the day before your wedding!! I would try to return it if you aren't happy with it. My favorite sunless tanning lotion is by St. Tropez. I've seen it at Sephora if you have that store. It made me the tannest I've ever been, and it was totally natural too!!
            If you're still stained or streaky, try scrubbing/exfoliating with a loofah and it'll fade quickly. The other suggestions sound good too!

              Thanks again for all of your helpful suggestions ladies! I went to the tanning place after my workout tonight and they traded my old lotion for a new one without bronzer in straight up...thank goodness!

              KimmyG - Yeah, I'm glad I'm figuring this out now too. In August I started tanning at the salon and had to stop because I got a huge allergic reaction to what I presume was the hemp in my lotion and broke out in to a huge rash. I'm so nervous and stressed that it will happen again (right before my wedding of course, Murphy's law lol) so I'm taking as many precautions as I can. I made sure the lotion I got tonight had a) no hemp and B) no bronzer haha. I got an Australian Gold tanning accelerator, so far so good.

                paraisobeachbride2009....just wondering where do you recommend to go tanning? I'm hoping to go a few times before I leave for the Dominican but am new to Edmonton and not sure where to go.

                  I self tan a lot due to the dance competitions. The easiest way to get it off is to soak in warm water and baking soda. then use a loofa. Baby oil helps also.
                  Mystic tan is ok, to keep it going I use HEMPZ w/ self tanner- the lotion is great for after tan and also builds gradually. wash your hands after. Or prior to using the self tanner lotion your ankles, elbows and knees, and hands... This will guard against it soaking in these places. then you can apply the self tanner.
                  BTW- any bar soaps will stip the color faster.
                  use CVS body wash instead.

                  Hope this helps!

                      i worked at a tanning salon for 7 years growing up! make sure you put normal lotion on your hands before you go in with the bronzer lotion! Its because your hands are dry and your hands will just soak up the bronzer! hope this helps for the future!
