looking at kate somerville toilets and also looking at the self tanner by dior


any suggestions ?

i have free tanning at desert sun.. little adament on trying a spray on. really don't owant to look orange which is why i stuck the bed and using tanning lotion with little to no bronzer (aswell for the face). for some people, bronzer in tanning lotion makes them have an orange tint rather than a dark tan.

i have medium skin and tan easily. use to tan all the time (17-20 years old, 20 right now) and i finally took my head out of my ass and realized this cannot be healthy in the long run. 3 times a week is what i usually do. thinking i should quit while i am ahead before i look like a burlap sack from head to toe.

I use the fake bake self tanner myself. I'm a very pale chinese man and this has worked for me for years.

Fantasy Tan will not make you look orange. Used it before but they recommend a second coat the following day.

I just bought a La Roche Posay for $25, I applied it tonight so wont see results untill tmr, but judging by the price and brand rep I assume it will be quality, if I applied it properly... haha

Test some on an inconspicuous area so you don't wake up looking like an Oompa Loompa

Tan grenade fire, as mentioned above, scaling is very important. Even peeling of the skin can be caused by drought, taking care to renew your clothes, and you should always moisturize the skin day and night.

I purchased one of those vitamin D3/tan devices from Dr. Cannell's sight. It is not so much of a tanner as much of a healthy vitamin D3 maker, but it does give some color to the skin I've found with use this winter. http://www.vitamindcouncil.org/

i don't think there has been a dry day since august. it may be nice for about half the day then it rains..

i've been using mystic tan and it works

i go 3-4 times a week and get a glow or light, that way it looks like you have color but it doesn't grab your attention as if i were too do medium or dark mystic tans 3x a week.

i messed up the first five sessions because i wasn't putting enough blending lotion on my hands and it made them look funny
