    does anyone go for a spray on tan? does it look real? where did you go? what did it cost? i am talking about those new salons where you get in that shower stall.

    I tried one recently on a special introductory deal - $10 for two sessions.

    I actually thought it worked pretty well, although I was not as dark as I usually get with a regular tanning bed (and not really as dark as I like to be.)

    The interesting thing is that you're not really tan right away - it takes 6 to 8 hours for the color to develop and you're not supposed to shower or bathe during that time. So they recommend doing it at night and letting the tan develop while you are sleeping.

    I've been planning to go again, just haven't had the time recently.

    Bradford, when doing the spray and waiting the time out before showering, does the solution stain any, like sheets, furniture, clothing etc. If you are not supposed to bathe, it would seem that it would come off as well.

    I haven't experienced any staining -

    When you step out of the spray booth, you use a towel to rub it into your skin and even out the application... basically a buffing.

    Although you do see the brown on the towel when you do that, basically as you are rubbing it in, it seems to be drying, so by the time you are done vigorously buffing yourself, it no longer comes off of your skin.

    The cream you use to block the spray on tan needs to be applied with precision. Twice I have gotten too much "tan" on my fingers and it looked uneven. It would not wash off, so over time it wore off. In the mean time, my hands looked dirty.

    The place where I went provides a salt scrub that you use on the palms of your hands, the soles of your feet and your cuticles immediately upon exiting the spray-on booth (after you've done the buffing procedure I described previously.)

    The salt scrub takes off the tanning solution before it has time to set.

    P.S. I have now done this twice as this thread reminded me that I still had one session left on my trial offer. Both times I would say that it has worked quite well.
