    I am so excited!! I am naturally a very pale person...and I really can't tan, b/c I had a bout with sun cancer years ago. So, I will not allow myself to ever step foot in a tanning bed again. I am not always the best with sunscreen outdoors, but I never purposely tan.

    So, I have been planning to try a salon in my area that offers airbrush tanning, where an actual person sprays you. I tried Mystic Tan before and I didn't like it..it didn't make a noticeable difference, anyways.

    I tried it last night, just a trial, and I can't believe it! It looks so natural and GREAT! I still have to see how long it lasts and how fast it fades out, but as of day 1, I am recommending this for all those fair-skinned girls out there. This will be great as I head to Jamaica in January. The best part is you only need one session...not multiple.

      Im a fan of the spray tan as well! I dont get any color naturally, so whenever I have an event I get sprayed. Ill give you a few tricks, buy the cheapest soap possible, bar soap anything but Dove to wash yourself, always put lotion (helps keep it locked in longer) Spray tan really is awesome, but when you sweat it starts to fade and the more you wash yourself...... my gf's and I always laugh 'cause really they say the best way to keep from fading is not to shower, but its like? who doesnt shower? hope you like it.

        yup love it as well - especially the airbrush kind.

        Talk to your photographer if you are planning on doing it for your wedding - mine said no no no as it looks orangy in photos even if it doesn't in real life

          Wow, that is good to know...never thought of it! Our wedding is 3 days after we arrive..maybe it will only last a few days and then I will be good for photos, but if it came down to it I'd rather be pale and have great photos!

            yeah for sure - I know my airbrush tans usually last for about 7-10 days

              I'd be careful doing it before Jamaica too because the salt water will exfoliate your skin and could make it blotchy and come off uneven. And if you burn/peel it'll make a very noticable difference. Maybe think about taking a bottle of self tanner with you to even it out in case it starts coming off.

                i love the airbrush too, but have heard alot of what the other girls have said.

                Salt water... bad! the less showering you do the better. And I have heard photographers say it looks orangey, but the great thing about the airbrush is you can pick your tint so if you went much lighter it wouldn't be orangey..... although then it wouldn't be much of a tan, and wouldn't really be worth it IMO

                  I love airbrush tan! I did it a few months ago cause I was in a wedding. It looked so natural and it lasted for approximately one week. I got so many compliments. Just be careful though, I heard from a few people that if you go in the ocean after getting it done, your skin becomes really streaky and blotchy. I think it may have something to do with the salt water.

                    so did anyone try this before their wedding? wondering how the pics turned out and if it got streaky. I've done it once before for another wedding, but I didn't go swimming and it was more to fix the streakiness I got from the spray tan booth...
