As a (fairly)Â new mama, I have trouble finding time to make myself look amazing – gym, hair, makeup, you name it. So, when I got an email from a local tanning salon asking if I’d like to check out their new spray tan machine, I was all over it.
Spray tan… inÂ less than 5Â minutes… with a heated blow dry at the end? Count me in.
Last week I stopped by Sun City Tanning Salon to experience their new VersaSpa spray machine. I was greeted by the salon’s owner, Jenny, who had an adorable 4-mo-old baby on her hip -Â IÂ instantly loved this place!
After quicklyÂ setting up an account, I was given the option of aÂ light, medium or dark spray – with a clear or bronze application. I chose dark with bronzer – since I was in sweats (I came prepared), I didn’t have any worries about the solution getting on my work clothes (which would be where the clear spray comes in).
One of Jenny’s super-cute employees showed me the VersaSpa machine, gave me a quick overview of how to stand while being sprayed and set up the machine for me. This thing is awesome – the whole spray experience took LITERALLY 3 minutes. I stood in 4 different positions during the actual tanning-solution spray, then got a quick heated blow-dry and I was finished.
Having been sprayed before, I knew to liberally apply the blocker cream on my fingers & toes, and on my wrists and the back of my feet. I had no problems with weird tan lines after using the VersaSpa – thank goodness, because I HATE looking like a weirdo with crazy wrist tan lines!
When I came out of the room, the cute employee (Katie, I think?) gave me a few aftercare instructions:
Me: Well that was awesome!
Katie: Yeah, I love this new machine. So… just make sure you don’t get wet for 46 hours, then when you finally do shower some of the bronzer will go down the drain so don’t be alarmed. The tan will still be there, and it’ll even out a bit after the shower. Don’t use major exfoliants for a while because it’ll make the tan go away faster, and just make sure to keep moisturized! It should last about a week or so. What do you think?
Me: Uh, I’m sorry… I missed ALL of that last part… did you just tell me I can’t shower for FORTY-SIX HOURS? Holy shit I have to work!
Katie: BAHAHAHAHAHA! FOUR TO SIX HOURS. I was wondering why you were looking at me so weird.
Me: Oh… that makes more sense. Phew. Well now I feel like an idiot.
Okay, so did you get that? Here’s the summary: VersaSpa spray tan at Sun City Tanning = awesome. It takes 3 minutes, it has a heated dryer, and it’s a beautiful color that lasts about a week or so. Don’t shower for 4 to 6 hours after getting the spray.
